Ran 15 miles today.<br><br>
First 13.1 was the Mill Creek Distance Classic in Youngstown followed by a 2mi cool-down.<br><br>
This course is a terrificly hilly course that features 22 hills. It brings out many of the Spring marathon hopefuls--especially those training for Boston.<br><br>
Weather: 22F and steady snowfall at 8:45am. The road surface was covered with a dusting and footing not bad, considering the accumulation.<br><br>
My performance does not merit its own RR today. My goal today was simply to finish the run in tact so that I can run speedwork on Tuesday. No warm-up, ran in trail shoes, and stayed fairly steady throughout. 1:42:04 (7:47 pace.) Mission accomplished.<br><br>
Each of the past two years, I arrived at this race in midst of a marathon season, in good shape, and 6 weeks out from race day. The result was that I ran 10 minutes faster last year and even faster in 2005 (1:32 and 1:29, respectively.)<br><br>
Probably try a little spinning tonight to shake it out.

Nice run today roots.<br><br>
My bed and I are becoming well acquainted. My immune system is winning the battle, just much slower than I would like it to.<br><br>
I still don't feel good enough for a run, so I won't be running today.<br><br>
I hope you all have a great run today.

great run roots<br>
EQ - hope you get better soon - over my bout with whatever it was<br><br>
14 miles round the lake a few times, lots of hills. Good solid run - about 10:15 overall pace<br><br>
Nearly fell on my ass right in front of my house about halfway through on some ice. I dont think anyone saw me<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Nice running Roots, Jack... and get better Kevin.<br><br>
Roots puts me to shame, really.<br><br>
15 miles scheduled with 12 at MP, but it didn't work out that way. I had to stop to walk about 11 miles in, and at 14 I just couldn't hold MP anymore and so I eased way back.<br><br>
15 miles 2:01:55.<br><br>
Have good runs all, I'm going to go try and demolish some pancakes or something to cheer me up.

Nothing <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> I feel achy from yesterday, mostly my upper body and right side of my poor weak neck <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br>
I may do a double tomorrow to redeem myself <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

I think yesterday's workout qualifys as a double meri, so you can take today off without worrying too much about it. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Thanks for the get well wishes folks. Hopefully I'll be able to get out there some time this week.

Good running guys; Get well soon EQ; Grizz, remember the one day at a time philosophy. Scoff the pancakes and tomorrow is another day.<br><br>
A very windy 10k race for me today, with the headwind from hell at during the middle third, but it never seemed to become a tailwind in spite of the course being a circuit. So given the conditions was pleased with 39:17, over a minute faster than last year and it was especially pleasing to be up with guys who were minutes ahead of me a few months ago.<br><img alt="icon_bounce.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_bounce.gif"><br>
Good runs all

6 miles for me today. It doesn't seem possible, but I think my legs are already feeling the effects of tapering. I was tired today and not in the mood to run at all (rare for me) but they clicked along at the "fast" end or just faster than easy pace range.<br><br>
Grizzly, I had a tough time with my "long MP miles in the middle of a long run workout" too. You'll get more opportunities to do that kind of workout before your race!

Nice running, snow shoeing, resting and pumping, all!<br><br>
Two hours of skiing in crunchy, icy snow at the top of Whistler mountain today. We were spoiled by all those great powder days on Blackcomb, and I didn't like it today one bit.

Nice runs and races everyone. Get better soon, EQ.<br><br>
My legs are beat up from a step-up in mileage last week, so Porter and I ran for 90 minutes today along the river and called it good.<br><br>
I'll take a day off tomorrow and lift weights.

I REALLY want someone to post that they ice danced, really with a partner and all.<br><br>
Since it can't be me, I ran 15.2 miles around Lake Waramaug (in 2:08.16) today to see what the ultra course would be like. I went down w/ a RB and although it is a beautiful place to run, I couldn't get the idea of that many loops around the lake out of my head. So, I decided to crew for my 2 RB's who want to do the 50K and the 50M. I think the pavment is killing me. My left ankle is still in bad shape from the marathon, may need to seek medical advice, or better yet advice from the PRT...

Alas, I did not ice dance. Nor did I run. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br>
Instead I went shopping with my daughter to buy work-appropriate clothing in my current size. I decided it's bad enough to have gained a few pounds that I can't seem to lose without also stressing myself to tears every morning trying to dress myself for work.<br><br>
So now I have a small but decent wardrobe, all bought on clearance, and a new haircut.<br><br>
I feel exhausted! But less self-pitying.

movingon, I was looking for ice dancing on this thread as well! I did do a few unintentional spins on icy patches -- does that count?<br><br>
Altoids, glad you got some nice new clothes. You're a cutie -- don't be so hard on yourself.

Sorry I can't give you any ice dancing. For that matter, I can't say I did any regular dancing either! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
