Good Morning - I'm surprised with such a late post at 10:00 am, that the daily has not been started.<br><br>
Waiting to hear how the relay went . . .<br><br>
7.5 untimed windy miles this morning.<br><br>
Good runs / workouts to those who follow!

Hi Pink! It's almost 11am now EST; where is everyone? I ran 3.5 miles today, which is the longest distance since I had ripped my calf late last September. Also walked 1 mile w/u & c/d. I felt tired but good......it's encouraging to be able to start adding a little distance. I think in a couple of months I'm going to try that 60 minute training. Prior to the injury, I was up to about 5-7 miles each run, about 4 times a week. Currently I've been struggling to complete 3 miles, which has beem sooooo discouraging but now it seems like I'm making some progress.<br><br>
Nice sunny day here, though cold (24) and windy.<br><br>

Soooper dooper wind-chilly run today! 27 degrees when I left the house, but with a windchill down to 12 degrees from the 20-30 mph gusts that buffeted me across the bike path this morning. Heading out was tough, but the wind was on my back running home, so that felt great.<br><br>
My legs were really sluggish after yesterday's 8 miler at marathon pace, but I managed 15.18 miles in 2:20:49 (9:16 pace). Another 50+ mile week!<br><br>

This forum on KR is decided PNW oriented, as opposed to RA which is more easterly, so this daily always gets started later.<br><br>
18.25 miles this morning in a Pfitz-style progression run. The plan was to run really easy and pick it up toward the end.<br><br>
I ran the first 10 miles at about 9:50 min/mile pace pace or so. Then ran the next 2 miles at 9:30. Then finished off the last 6.25 miles at 8:45 min/mile pace or so. Average HR only 137 - though the last 6 averaged 155 or so.<br><br>
Now for some carbo-loading with cinnamon rolls for breakfast. (Ribs is <span style="text-decoration:underline;">totally</span> responsible for this.)<br><br>

Robin - thanks for the explanation. I looked up the weather, it was 32 at that point and sunny. When I started running, I quickly realize THAT WAS NOT THE CASE!<br><br>
3 mile easy run - I passed another runner who looked enough like Robin to get a big smile and greeting. She probably now thinks this is normal runner's behavior.<br><br>
Burrrrrrgers right - this is a WestCoast oriented place. Coming from CA, I sometimes think I am still in that time zone! Nice run by the way - 9:50s, then 9:30s and the 8:45s with a 137 HR - once again you have my admiration. I will also eat a cinnamon bun in honor of your run!

Nice runs today, especially those LR's by Robin and Bill. I put in a little over 7 miles @ an easy 9:27 pace at a balmy 40F. Still come icy patches around, although today will be a big melt-off day. This evening, they're calling for more snow!<br><br>
I've decided that I'm past the "fighting off a cold" stage and that I lost the fight. Next weekend is my first 20-miler, so I guess it's to be expected. On the bright side, yesterday's scrape from falling on the ice did not bother me today, so life is good.<br><br>
I hope Tammy has a good day for her LR. Belated Atta Girl to CHoovie on hers yesterday. If it helps, both may be about to discover that the next one at that distance will be easier. Soon, 15 will be the new 12.

Good Morning Kicksters! Cheryl congratulations on your 15 miler. Nice progression run Breger.<br><br>
The soreness is starting to go away. Can't believe that sproink run would have such an effect. I am not going to do any type of specific running for the next 2 weeks as I will be single for 2 weeks and there will be no time restraints so pure pleasure running for awhile. I think I will use this time to think about what to do with Kay. Have talked with her daughters discussing letting them take over. Whatever I do will take some time for them to prepair themselves. THis will be the longest that they have taken her since she got sick and they should get some idea of what they may need to do.<br><br>
Nothing to report for today, Larry

The sun has finally risen on the west coast, relax dude, we're just a tad bit laid back out here on the west coast, like right.<br><br>
Larry, I know you'll use the next two weeks wisely. I wish you could sneak in a little fishing out here, the winter steelhead fishing has been excellent. A friend of mine landed 7 fish, all on a big ol red butted wooly bugger, in four hours on the Siletz...not a bad way to spend a morning on the river.<br><br><br>
5 miles at an easy peasy pace, no watch, just bob dylan whispering in my ear as the trees stood still beside me.

I see our relay runners finished 22nd out of 159 teams, so way to go!<br><br>
Did several miles of X-C skiing yesterday, and today my leg is feeling it a bit more than I'd like. I was planning on running tomorrow morning, but will have to wait and see what I feel when I wake up.

Nice runs today, everyone. It's sunny and mid 30's here. Perfect day for a 20 miler but too bad I had to bail out. 10 miles at 10:33 pace. I woke up not feeling well so I promised myself I'd stop if my easy pace no longer felt easy. That happened at 10 so I quit.<br>
Great news on the relay team's finish place. Can't wait to hear their stories and see some pics!<br><br><b>mill</b>, are you feeling better? Hope so.

2.4 miles on the treadmill - run/walk combo at home this morning.<br><br>
Lots of stressful issues with DS the last couple of months... but I think we're finally getting somewhere in the last couple of days. he's only 12, I'm not sure I'm gonna survive the teenage years <img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif"> but, the working out is sure helping my stress level in the last week, so am planning to keep it up..

Good runs all around, gang!<br><br>
An easy 3 miler here, in the sunshine and -1oC temp. Heel was a bit touchy still, so popped the vitamin I and will massage later. Good to get outside at least!

And Bill..wow...what a great LR...<br><br>

Thanks for all the nice "atta girls" yesterday. They warmed my heart and made me feel much better about my difficult run. I learned a few things about myself yesterday. I do much better mentally with a LR being point-to-point than running a course that simply meanders around with no real destination in mind.<br><br>
There are some good runs for many this morning and I'm sure more will be posted as runners finish. Good to hear the relay people did so well but I'm not surprised given the cast of characters. Thinking of Larry and Rindaroo with their very different but stressful family issues.<br><br>
I attended a slow and gentle yoga class this morning, which was heavenly. Now I need to get busy preparing a family dinner.<br><br>
Hope everyone had a great week!

Afternoon everyone,<br><br>
I went for a nice LSD/recovery run with Opie this morning. As it was very windy, we picked a nice crosswind route. 14 miles @ 10:32/mile pace.<br><br>
Have a great week,<br><br>

9.32 mi with the group today. I had a very slow start on this one, I felt very unmotivated and tired. Didn't have a very good sleep last night and my body was balking at the insult of having to move... On top of it we ran through a forested area with a nice paved bike path, normally one of my favourite places to run, but today I noticed that, while there, my nasal passages plugged up completely and I even started to get an ear ache... I felt quite miserable and just "hanging in there" till about 7 miles, when we got out of that pocket of woods and I started to breathe easier. Then I started to feel alive and got a second wind and felt really strong for the rest of the run<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">.<br>
I figure there must be some plant out there right now that I am allergic to that caused this reaction. I've been running on this bike path a lot during the summer with no problems, so hopefully this will just be a short period and I can run there again soon.<br>
Anybody else have environmental allergies? If yes, how do you prepare for a run during "your time"?<br>

You guys are so awesome. It's so inspiring reading your reports. 3, 8, 10, 12, 18, and 20 miles - all done with a great attitude - at least once it's over <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">. The running community is so positive.<br><br>
I took a total rest day today. My 20 miler yesterday was like a death march at the end...not good. But it capped a 65 miles for the week which is WAY over my normal total. I'll be back on the road tomorrow though.<br><br>
Good runs all,<br>
Mike
