Got back on the horse today and managed 7 miles of walking/running/hiking on the treadmill. My arm is still sore but the leg feels pretty good. Thanks for all the well wishes yesterday everyone. I think Flounder may have been on to something when he said hydration/nutrition issues. This week was very busy teaching music/movement at our VBS for three hours a day. I think maybe I didn't realize how much energy all that jumping around expends. Bad news-today was our big VBS celebration so I had to get up in front of the Church with my ugly road burns-the worst on my shoulder and of course my dress was strapless<img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> Hope everyone has great runs-enjoy your Sunday!

10 miles trails. I saw several deer, and lots of frogs. My husband had been on the same trail earlier in the morning and didn't see the deer, but he did see the beavers swimming around in the pond.<br><br>
It was a beautiful day, mid-sixties, sunny, with a light breeze. The woods were fragrant with pine and ferns.

Well, the weatherman said the storms were passing over us so I waited until just after 10:00 this morning to start my run at Stone Mountain Park. 1st mile was fine rain starts during the 2nd and continued with a few brief letups for the duration.<br><br>
13.25 miles in 2:17:17. Now that I've gotten out of the wet clothes and into dry ones I'm freezing. It's only 68 degrees outside.<br><br>
I'm also wearing a nip guard after the fact to keep the blood off my fresh shirt I put on. Ouch.

Out for a run at 6:00 am this moring. About 3.3 miles. Didn't take a watch, but I know it was slow and relaxing.<br><br>
The park had an awful lot of litter in it this morning. I mentioned heading out on tomorrow's run with a garbage bag and rubber gloves. Mr jebba gave me an odd look and said, "You can't run with rubber kitchen gloves." So we will go walking tomorrow and pick it up together.

6:20 on trails. Did about 30 miles i guess. I really do not know, but that seemed like the pace. The climbs get easier every week and my 2 hour loop took much less and each progressive loop got faster today! so after my third loop i had to do a little out and back to get the mileage i wanted. It was a good day, but a little odd. At one point i was on a trail and there was an older man with a walking stick and he asked me if i would run faster if he chased me. Not sure if he was being funny or thought i was slow. Then right before i finished a man told me i was really fit and running well <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Meri, when I read your long-distance reports, I chuckle. Just about 30 miles - no biggie! <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"> You're awe-inspiring!<br><br>
I was in Bar Harbor, ME for a long weekend with DH & DS. The weather was beautiful, and the carriage roads were awesome for running on. Did 12.5 miles or so on Saturday - two loops around Eagle Lake. I thought it was 6 miles around, but a local booklet I read said 6.25, and my time reflected that extra. DH & DS were awesome crew. This morning I ran a nice, easy recovery run from the motel's back trail to another carriage road and ran about 4.5 total.

Hi all,<br><br>
Nice efforts out there today! Great work everyone!<br><br>
Here's my report for the day:<br><br><b>Daily Run Report</b><br><br><b>Date:</b> 07/22/2007 <b>Time:</b> 13:11<br><b>Run Type:</b> Just A Run<br><b>Distance:</b> 19.2 miles<br><b>Total time:</b> 03:12:11.7 <b>Average Per Mile:</b> 00:09:44.9<br><b>Course:</b> OTHER COURSE<br><b>Max HR (for entire workout):</b> 179<br><b>Average HR:</b> 152<br><b>Shoes:</b> Mizuno Wave Rider 10 - 06/2007 <b>Date Entered Service:</b> 06/26/2007 <b>Ending Mileage:</b> 104.1<br><b>Weather:</b> Sunny<br><b>Temperature:</b> 78 <b>Temperature Type:</b> Ambient Air <b>Time:</b> Start<br><b>Temperature:</b> 78 <b>Temperature Type:</b> Ambient Air <b>Time:</b> End<br><b>Dew Point:</b> 54 <b>Time:</b> Start<br><b>Dew Point:</b> 51 <b>Time:</b> End<br><b>Wind speed:</b> 1 <b>Max Gust:</b> 8 <b>Direction:</b> VAR<br><br><a href="http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=13301" target="_blank">FIRST 12.2 OF LAKE MARATHON ROUTE</a> THEN <a href="http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=244337" target="_blank">LAST 7 MILES OF LAKE TO SPRING AND BACK</a><br><br>
Plan today was an 18 mile long run. I managed a 19.2 mile hilly run as you can see from the course profiles in the URLs above.<br><br>
I had forgotten my CamelBak at home so I was down to handheld bottles. I brought 2 bottles with me. I left one at a point where I could pick it up at mile 6, so I only carried one for most of the first 6 miles. When I got to mile 6, I briefly considered just swapping the two bottles, and just carrying one the rest of the way. I'm glad I opted to carry both, because I really needed the fluids late in the run.<br><br>
At mile 12.2 I got to the mountain spring. At that point I finished off the Gatorade that I had started with (a full litre in the 2 bottles!) then proceeded to fill the two bottles with water from the spring. After dumping both bottles over my head to try to cool down a bit (that water was cold!), I refilled the bottles and started on my way back.<br><br>
I really struggled on the last 7 miles going back from the spring. There are a lot of short, steep climbs in that section and the legs weren't really strong at that point. Also, the HR was up too.<br><br>
To make matters worse, normally on a long run like this, I would have had 2 or 3 GU energy gels with me. But I had left those at the cottage.<br><br>
So, very little went right in terms of run preparation. Despite my screwups, I was still able to finish the run albeit much slower than I had hoped, particularly during the last 7 miles.<br><br><b>Run Segments<br>

6 miles earlier this evening. I was hoping for rain, but settled happily for overcast skies, a breeze, and less humidity. It was still warm, but better than sun beating on me. I ran with more gusto than usual.
