Run 75 minutes on trails. Very sore from 22 on roads yesterday. Freezing rain from overnight created a few slippery spots, but mostly ankle-deep crunchy snow. Good for shoeing or running. A nice recovery pace, or about 6.5 miles. Ran with a local kid home on spring break.<br><br>
Kudos to hippo for the fine run at the Hagg 50k. Hmmm...mud & hippo = no-brainer!<br><br>
Looking forward to hearing about the Sunday long runs. <img alt="icon_bounce.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_bounce.gif"><br><br>

wondering how our marathon runner is doing out there...I just checked Hyannis weather. Sunny and high-20s. The ice has not reached there yet.<br><br>
go, go, go!<br><br>

Good Morning (almost afternoon). Today was my last long run before my 50K. I ran 25.54 in 3:49:47 for a pace of 9:00. The only problem with that is the final 5 miles I really slammed into the wall and I was averaging about 10 or 11 minute miles.<br><br>
If you take out the 9 minutes of water stops I ended up with a total time of 3:40:39 which would give me an 8:38 pace.<br><br>
Temps were in the 50s based on the temperature I saw on the sign at the bank on my course. I was to tired to remember to look on my way back.<br><br>
Time for a nap!

Hi all. was gonna run 4 hours, ended at 3:45. It was dark, dreary, gray and super icy out. It was just not fun My route should have taken me 4 hours, so i guess i gained some speed somewhere. I did not want to run loops around the parking lot and mentally was done. Florida- i have a 50K next weekend too!!!

Nice runs, guys. Floridaboiler, was this a peak week for you? Maybe that would explain some of the fatigue at the end -- or did you push too much at the beginning? Great job being out there on your feet for that mileage and time.<br><br>
I did 23 miles this morning with the last 5 at marathon pace. My time was around 3:30ish, not exact because of multiple breaks/pit stops.<br><br>
The race pace miles were actually the most enjoyable of this workout, and both my running buddy and I felt like we could have kept going at the end. I think that's a great way to end a peak week.<br><br>
I met my goal of having good positive quailty workouts for this whole week too. Still looking for more confidence for race day, but today will help tremendously.<br><br>
AWWWWW YEAH, I'm tapering!!! <img alt="icon_cheers.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_cheers.gif"><br><br>
Looking forward to a report from Hyannis!

I'm more sore after yesterday than I expected so I'm taking the day off. All the little stabilizer muscles got beaten up from all the steps I took on muddy up/down/side hills where my feet tried to slide out from under me.<br><br>
A big (for me) three week break until Chuckanut Mt 50K. I'm going to use it to drop another 5+ pounds if I can. I seem to be quickly morphing myself from "Hippo" to "Hippo with abs" <img alt="icon_cheers.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_cheers.gif"><br><br>
Say, one thing I noticed yesterday. A number of ultrarunners were sidelined with injuries and there seemed to be a disproportionate amount of hamstring tears. Is that common? or just a coincidence.

I think part of it is I went out a little to fast at the start and I was up until midnight with my son at the Monster Truck show here in Jacksonville.

schlitzloads of heavy wet snow = 3 hours of shovel duty by noon....more on tap later this evening and tomorrow am<br><img alt="" src="http://bestsmileys.com/winter/8.gif" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
therefore, no need for any sort of weight work today<br><br><br>
UNfortunately, we cannot snowshoe today because we cannot get to the property.<br>
Soooo, I'll probably walk or plod on the TM during the hoops game [along with channel surfing since I'm too nervous to actually WATCH]<br><img alt="" src="http://bestsmileys.com/exercising/7.gif" style="border:0px solid;"><br><img alt="" src="http://bestsmileys.com/scared/7.gif" style="border:0px solid;">

7 miles at Stone Mountain this afternoon. 1:04:11 under beautiful blue skies, temps in 60's. It was supposed to be rainy weather this afternoon but the skies cleared and the weather is just fantastic.

After a 50k? Slacker <img alt="icon_blackeye.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_blackeye.gif"><br><br>
Good runs all, 14 for me. Mixture of trails and hilly roads, combined with not being properly hydrated meant a pretty crummy time. Weighed in after about 6 pounds lighter. I should know better!

11 and a bit in 2 hrs and a bit. Two minute negative split on 1st half vs second half on an out and back route. Calves will be sore tomorrow as this is the longest I have gone outdoors this year.

<b>FloridaBoiler</b> - Awesome job out there today! You are marathon ready.<br><br><b>Hippo</b> - Don't know the answer to your question.

Great runs, one and all. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
I'm just back in from 17 miles in 2:20:36 (8:16/mi). My legs, especially my hamstrings, feel pretty beat up. Now I'm going to settle in to watch Monster House with the kids.<br><br>
8:19, 8:02, 7:59, 8:11, 8:14, 8:09, 8:23, 7:55, 8:14, 8:12, <b>(8:39, 8:33, 8:33, 8:23),</b> 8:01, 8:11, 8:25.<br><br>
Those miles in parenthesis were run with a 63 year old guy I met on the path who is training for Eugene, his first marathon. He was doing a 17 miler as well and is going to try for 8:15 pace. He was running great and I think he'll make his goal.

Ran the Hyannis Marathon, posted a separate race report, I guess I should have just posted it here. I am still getting used to all this, posting in general. Can you tell I am not very good at it?

YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!YES! I did it!<br><br>
I just did my long run on the TM. 2 hours, baybees!<br><br>
This is a huge mental breakthrough for me! I watched an animal planet show about bears with the sound off and closed captioning on, and listened to a djsteveboy mix. Good show, good run.<br><br>
I'm so happy. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
I thought I'd botched my chance at getting in a weekend long run yesterday, so this is just wonderful. This was also good practice for running late in the evening for when I pace at Umstead.<br><br>
My husband came downstairs to check on me when I was almost done, and to inform me that I was crazy.<br><br>
Oh, I also found out that at 100 minutes, my treadmill stops. Ack!

Wow, I was in good company I guess.<br><br>
20.5 in 3:33 or so. Pokey, but it was on snow-covered country roads and the temp was about -15 (5 f) so I was encumbered by clothing.<br><br>
Still and all, a good run. Felt bagged after about 15 but kept on even pace.
