Good Sunday Morning Kicksters!<br><br>
Gin - Great job on the 1/2 M yesterday!<br><br>
A beautiful, sunny morning here in New England. Low 20's and did I mention sunny? 8.5 mile run this morning. Now for my face to thaw out . . .

Good morning everyone,<br><br>
A nice morning for a long run today, but just a little windy.<br><br>
20.02 miles of hills @ 9:27 pace (152 AHR)...it got easier after mile 13 but I think that I'd rather run 26 flat miles than 20 miles of hills...glad that's done. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br>
I'm all set for the Shamrock marathon in Virginia beach next month.

Hey are we already running and blaming Millbot before 10am these days.<br><br>
And while we are torpidly, lingering on 19th century (french even!) opera, not that anyone particularly <i>needs</i> my sardonic and socially insensitive barbs on said subject, I will admit, Carmen does have some mind-numbingly catchy tunes in it.<br><br>
Peter, Shamrock is already in your back pocket,<br>
but it will be a windy back pocket.<br>
Way to smoke it, man.<br>

Cold out there this morning. I blame millbot.<br><br>
4 EZPZ recovery miles in brilliant sunshine.<br><br>
Next stop, Arizona! I've done a grand total of two 10+ mile runs, and one 30+ mile week, in the last six months. It'll have to do. Feeling surprisingly fit, actually, for all that. Let the final countdown to Ragnar del Sol begin!

Hi JJJ <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
A challenging 17 miler here.<br>
Still icy but managed an 8:20/mile pace.<br>
Felt like a solid investment run.<br><br>

A decent run for me this morning at the gym. 1 mile walk w/u and c/d, and a 3.25 mile run. Then I did a little upper body work before stretching.<br><br>
This evening DH and I are going out to dinner with friends -- should be really nice!<br><br>

Carmen is a slut, Micaela is a goody two shoes and Don Jose is abusive.<br>

<span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><span style="color:#003366;">I was a little worried about how today's long run was going to go after yesterday's marathon-paced run: 7.30 miles in 1 hour (8:16 pace). Compounding this was that Bill and I went on our "date night" last night: we went out for a terrific meal, and I ended up having a cocktail, a glass of champagne, and then 1/2 bottle of wine with my dinner. The meal itself was sooooo delicious...but very, very rich. Not exactly appropriate carbo-loading!</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><span style="color:#003366;">I drove out to the Boston Marathon course, and started my run at about mile 22, then ran the route backwards to about mile 13. Then I turned around and ran back to my car. I was feeling pretty good until about mile 15, when my tummy started to feel a little queasy. That's what I get for attempting a long run with a hangover!</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><span style="color:#003366;">18.26 miles in 2:51:25 (average pace 9:23 min/mile). It was 17 degrees outside when I started...so I get to join the "More miles than degrees" Club! It was 23 degrees when I finished, and now it a sunny and bright 30 degrees.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><span style="color:#003366;">At almost 16 miles into my run, I passed by the statue of the legendary Johnny Kelly (the elder), at the base of Heartbreak Hill, so I thought I'd pause to snap a photo!</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><span style="color:#003366;"><img alt="" src="http://i31.tinypic.com/o59xlf.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><span style="color:#003366;">I can't tell if my queasy stomach needs food or no food. I think I shall opt in favor of food.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><span style="color:#003366;">--Robin</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><span style="color:#003366;">P.S. At the very end of my run, I saw Marj and Henry! And at the very end of my tempo run last Thursday, I saw LaT! How come I never get to see anyone at the start of my runs, when I am fresh and bright?</span></span>

Nice runs this morning everyone!<br><br>
I woke up very sore from yesterdays HM and thought I'd do a 3 or 4 miler. Well, after getting the kinks out, I ended up going for an easy paced 8. It was simply gorgeous out this morning! Sunny, about 28 degrees and just a perfect winter day! Saw 3 other runners out at various times and they all had happy faces. Wish all February days could be the same.<br>
Happy Sunday!

This morning I was catching up on yesterday’s daily and had one of those “ah-ha” moments of discovery. I won't bore you with the details but yesterday I too rediscovered the joy. I crossed the invisible line and felt once again <span style="text-decoration:underline;">a runner</span>. I really can’t explain why it happened nor even pinpoint precisely what the difference is. But I know it’s nice. Thanks <b>Rose</b>.<br><br>
Yay for <b>Perch</b>! Looks like Van 1 is ready to run (and eat) well. Hope Van 2 can hold up our end of the deal.<br><br>
Congrats to <b>Sherie</b> and very happy for <b>Rindaroo</b>.<br><br>
Enjoy the gift.<br><br>

Good morning kicksters! Snow morning on the bitterroot. Peter would rather do 26 flat than 20 hills? I have a sick mind...Given the choice I would take the 26 of hills over 15 miles of flat. There was a time when I didn't like hills, until I saw a man running up a steep trail that I was hicking on in the Absorka Mountain range by Lewiston. I was so impressed with this as I had up until that time never heard of anyone doing such a thing. When he was on his way back down, he stopped and we chatted. I asked him how he was able to do that and he told me that I could do it too by working at it. I was impressed and inspired. I was living in North Ogden, Utah at the time bellow Ben Lomond Peak rising about a mile from the Valley floor. There was a 9 mile trail that went to the top and my dream became, to run to the top and back. I started taking on various trails until I could run significant distances uphill while also learning the downhill stuff. Got up one saturday morning and decided that this was the day to attempt the summit running. There were several times that I thought that I needed to rest, but looking at my hr monitor said otherwise and I just kept plugging on, reaching the top and going for an invigorating downhill run.<br><br>
Good Runs All, Larry

The plan this morning was for a 17 mile Pfitz-style progression run, starting out at MP+20% (10:12 min/mile) and over the miles picking it up to about MP+10% (9:21 min/mile).<br><br>
I guess I need to work on feeling the pace better ...<br><br>
I actually had a warmup mile at 10:26, then 8 miles at around 9:35 or so, 4 miles at 9:00, and then had 1 mile at MP, before settling back into about a 9:00 min/mile pace to finish it off. A quite warm 73 degrees and 94% with an avg. HR of 141 - pretty darn good for an LR.<br><br>
17.35 miles altogether at 9:19 average overall. MP+10% for the whole run.<br><br>
Oops.<br><br>

breger1 - no shame in that run.<br><br>
I did 20 miles or so in an unknown time. (No watch of course). Brilliant sunshine, temp in the mid-30's. Perfect for a long run. I figured out this was my 25th 20+ mile run. Ice bath now, ART tomorrow.
