Tacos? Up here we call it "Toonie Tuesday" because you can get two pieces of KFC for a toonie! (2 dollar coin) I have not yet gone (tonight) but will be doing around 6 miles at a steady pace.

I'm sure there is someone in your house that can kick taco john's ass at making tacos.<br><br>
Good running at the meet - I predict 76-75-76-72 and 78-80-80-80-79-79-79-77 = and a colapse in utter exhaustion.

Greetings and salutations. I am back.<br><br>
3 miles very very slowly. Still, 3 miles is 3 miles, and they were hilly.<br><br>
Feel "loose" and not in a good sense. Uphill easier than downhill.

Welcome back Grizzly.<br><br>
I ran six miles of recovery this morning on the nearby golf course. I also retired my last pair of Asics GT-2100s. It was a rather sad day as I was very fond of that model of shoe. It was my third and final pair of them and I will always remember them with affection.<br><br>
Enjoy your workouts today!

Lofcaudio - You crack me up - I know you may be serious - But for me shoes come and go - I am on my 8th pair of Asics 1100 and there are still 3 in the box waiting - I am hoping to get to fall marathon with my current stable of ponies - then to the glue factory they go!

Glad I can provide some unintended comedy. Flounder, how many miles do you usually get out of a pair of shoes?<br><br>
(Like you, when I find a pair that I like, I usually grab a number of pairs...)

Everyone knows Taco John's is about the potato ole's.<br><br>
I taught pilates this morning, then got in the pool and swam for an hour. After warming up I alternated 400m sets (including one pathetic time trial) with 4 X 25m sprints. Gotta get faster!

Lofcaudio - Depends - really do not track any more, but I know I went through 6-8 pair (Depending on carryover) last year and ran 4800 miles ish.<br><br>
600-750 per pair I guess. I usually have 4-6 in the rotation at one time - The ones that are near end of life, I run short recovery runs or save for muddy days. I really try to let them completely dry out before wearing them again - I believe that this extends the life of the shoe.<br><br>
4 easy miles @ Lunch.<br><br>
71F and still muggy.

4 ploddingly slow miles on the tm<br>
~I was *so* not into my w/o today~<br><br><br>
*argh*<br>
would someone please go over to my neighbors' house [they aren't home], break in, and MUZZLE THEIR DAMN YAPPY LAP DOG...who hasn't shut up since they left for work at 8am<br><br>
oh, and the house is THREE homes away + a bunch of trees in between; so you KNOW that thing has to be driving someone else insane also<br><br><br><br>
thank you

Mike - I can't wait until I find a shoe that is good for me. Once I do stockpiling is sure to follow. 600 - 700 some miles is insane, my feet started hurting on my Speedstars around 300some miles. I am sort of doubt your splits as well, maybe if it was a decent rubber track but asphalt with trainers doesn't make me feel as fast as racers. Also about the taco thing, I like the ground beef at my house, but Taco Johns has pretty amazing tortillas along with the make your own salsa bars. I'm so hungry now...<br><br>
Griz - Hope the recovery starts happening.<br><br>
Lof - Why not find someplace online that sells them? Or have you tried already? Also I wish I had a nice soft place like a golf course to run on besides highways.<br><br>
Tigger - How big is that chicken? $2 for 2 pieces of chicken doesn't seem like such a great deal since you can get one of those little snacker sandwiches for $1 each. Hope the run goes well.<br><br>
jebba - Hopefully the lil' one naps when he should.<br><br>
Nice run JD.<br><br>
DG1 did you show him who was boss again, or did he dash away while you waited at the stoplights again?<br><br>
SGH - That speed will come back don't you worry...<br><br>
Well weather for the meet looks like it could be super bad, possible thunder storms...oh well. I'll report back later.<br><br>

Cooperative baby let me get in 4 miles in 42:10. He's seven weeks old today, and celebrating by sleeping all day. I hope this doesn't mean he'll be up all night.<br><br>
Time is flying. Unfortunately, that means going back to work soon. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

Jebba - Just means that he's going through a growing streak - I wish I could sleep all day - But there is only one direction for me to grow.

Hi all,<br><br>
I'll pass on the tacos. Friday night I ate Chinese food for the first time in nearly 20 years (last time I got <b><i><span style="text-decoration:underline;">violently ill</span></i></b>). I figure one daring food adventure in a week is enough for me.<br><br>
Anyway nice running out there folks. Lofcaudio, I completely understand your affection to your shoes. I used to love my Air Pegs until Nike went and f*cked them up royally in '06. They had it right in '04. The '05's were okay, but not as good as the '04's. The '06 was a disaster, and I refuse to waste my money on the '07s. I like the Wave Riders for pavement now, so that'll work for me.<br><br>
My plan for today was Week 3, Day #2 of the Pfitz/Douglas 18/70 plan. It called for 9 miles with 4 at LT pace. In my case, I decided to target BQ pace as my LT pace. Might have been a bit fast, but close enough. My MAX HR is 203, and at the end of the 4th mile of targeting BQ pace, my HR was around 180, so I figure if I wasn't at LT, I was close.<br><br>
Some of you might remember in November, December and early January, when I would do my long runs, I would try to do 3 miles at a considerably faster pace (I would normally target miles 4-6 and try to do 7:30-7:45 in those miles). I wasn't sure why I was bothering to do that, other than to have fun. Let me tell you, those workouts were great for prepping me for tonight's workout. I knew going in I wasn't going to have a problem for the first 3 miles, and if I could hold it together for the 4th I'd be all set.<br><br>
One thing I didn't like tonight, it took me most of mile 8 and part of mile 9 to get my HR back into the 160s. Recovery time needs some work.<br><br>
Okay, enough of the boring crap.
