Morning/Happy Snowy Easter. Feels like a Christmas Day run here.<br><br>
I squeezed out 4 miles this morning. The chest is feeling a bit better. I was shooting for my usual 5.5 miles but the trail I run on was not plowed worth a darn so the running/balancing was the suck.<br><br>
Have a great run/day.<br><br>

You're not far off, Todd. It's actually colder here on Easter morning than it was on Christmas! But good run anyway, and good runs to everyone else today.

Good morning to all and Happy Easter. I'm going out to hit the track later on. My DH is deadly sick with that flu and when he finally takes a nap, I'll slip out the door for my workout. We had to cancel our guests because DH didn't want to infect the grandbAAby.<br><br>

Happy Easter everyone. If you are so inclined, remember what the holiday is all about.<br><br>
NICE run yesterday Mustang Sally! You're ready ...<br><br>
Today was a good one. The schedule called for 16 miles with last 6 at MP. I ran the 1st 10 really easy at nearly recovery pace. The average HR during this stretch was only 127!<br><br>
Then the MP miles started. I ran the last 6 miles at:<br><br>
8:28<br>
8:25<br>
8:26<br>
8:31<br>
8:24<br>
8:23<br><br>
I can't say they were easy but they weren't hard either. Average HR during the MP was about 154 or so.<br><br>
16.25 miles in 2:32 overall for a 9:21 min/mile pace (MP + 10%).<br><br>

Good morning and Happy Easter to all.<br><br>
Good run there Todd, running in those slippery conditions sucks.<br>
Roch so great to see you here<br>
Riley, sorry to hear about your DH being so sick. Sorry also that you won't be able to see the grandbaby today...does he/she live nearby?<br>
Bill, you also are you ready for your marathon. I love the numbers on HR during the MP. Mine numbers are alway much higher during running MP.<br><br>
I got up early to prepare breakfast for the butterfly family. Then I sneaked out for a lovely 4 hilly miles (647 ft elevation gain) in the dark. After breakfast we will go to worship and then come back home to start cooking for the crowd this afternoon. It should be a lot of fun.<br>
Son #1 is home from college yepeee.

<span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#000080;">2 weeks ago, I ran a blustery 20-miler on the Boston Marathon course that nearly destroyed me. Today, I ran the same route...and what a difference 2 weeks makes!</span></span></span><br><br><br><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#000080;">20.87 miles in 3:07:33, for an average pace of 8:59. I had to keep telling myself to slow down, slow down because I felt so darned good! This pace was a full 45 seconds per mile faster than my last attempt. And this after a 6.25-mile run yesterday that was pretty darned near 10K race pace. I can't explain it, but I'm not complaining!</span></span></span><br><br><br><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#000080;">I had a dream last night that I was getting ready for my long run today. I looked at my computer desktop weather widget, and the temperature read 63 degrees! But then I realized that it was reading the wrong location: it was reporting the weather in "The Britains". (Don't ask me, it was a dream...). So, then I had to sit down and re-set it to read the weather for the correct location. When I did, it said 8 degrees! And when I looked outside, it was snowing! I was really proud of myself in my dream that I still geared up and got out for my long run despite a blizzard in 8 degree weather.</span></span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#000080;">So, I was curious this morning when I actually DID awaken to read the weather...28 degrees. At least it was sunny, once the sun came up!</span></span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#000080;">--Robin</span></span></span>

Todd - glad to hear you're chest is feeling better and you got out for a run.<br>
Breger & Robin - nice long runs!<br><br>
I was able to squeeze in 5 miles outside between Easter egg hunt and mass. I think I'll need to run extra tomorrow to make up for the eating today.<br><br>
Good runs/workouts to all who follow!

Excellent runs everyone.....<br><br>
Wow..Robin and Breger...great runs.....<br><br>
I sure wish I could practice on the Boston Marathon course.....no excuses Robin....<img alt="surprised.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/surprised.gif"><br><br>
Today....alarm off at 6:00AM..finally up at 7:00....out to the park by 7:30 for 8 recovery miles.....very slow....need to get these legs recovered so I can get serious again next week.....<br><br>
I am not in the shape I was in last year at this time.....since I running Houston last January.....last year Boston was my target race....not so this year...so it is understandable that I am not at the same level, but none the less I still want to be in the same shape.....getting older certainly has nothing to do with it......nope..... <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Happy Easter to all.....

Great runs robin and bergerg. Good outings also by Todd, Mari, Peter, Pink, and Tim.<br><br>
My day is shaped around basketball and the Vols. The men Vols play at 2:30 and the women play at 9:30 tonight. So, I'll have a nice window in between to get in a late afternoon run. Happy Easter to all.

2 miles warm-up, then 8 tempo miles.<img alt="toothy4.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/toothy4.gif"> I tried to catch <b>breeder1</b>, but he was a little too fast for me today.<br><br><b>Pink</b>, great minds think alike!<br><br>
ETA: I'm still agog over dAAve's astounding 1 mile yesterday -- <b>dAAve</b>, wasn't that the same time -- 5:08 -- as your track mile? (or was that 5:04?) I'd say you've recovered nicely. hooboy!

Glad you are feeling better Todd. Nice runs indeed for Robin and Breger -- and others! I'm trying to get back on track after having a rather lazy week. I ran 6 miles this morning in 59:25 with a running friend and then walked .5. I'm excited to take my little 3 yr old nephew to the park this afternoon after Easter dinner. Yesterday I took him to the campus to hunt Easter eggs and he was a riot. Three year olds are so much fun.

Gorgeous day... Easter egg hunt on the church lawn after the festival service... everything polished up within an inch of its life.

Good job, people! Did 20 miles with 6 others from my running club. Somebody had one of those, how you say, "Garmin" thingys and said it was actually 20.3. Beautiful day for a long run. Sunny, temp in the mid 20's to start and mid 30's by the finish. I felt great over the last 5 miles - conditioning is really kicking in.

DH is really very sick (over 102 temp) and I've got a drippy throat and chills. I suspect I'm getting what he has. I went to a nearby track and only managed 1/2 mile before throwing in the towel. Too bad - it was IRC - sunny and almost 40. But it was windy and I was feeling yukky and I just went back home.<br><br>

21 hilly miles in 3:03 (8:45 pace MP+10%, AHR 150). Tory went the first 8 mi. Last 7mi rolling uphill made it challenging. I'm hungry now!

Beautiful bright day here in Maryland, 35* light breeze.<br>
I took a stroll on a different section on Seneca trail.<br>
It was even easier than yesterday.<br>
10.5 mile plus 1.1 walking.<br>
