I think it's time to get a rally going here. First, we need to change our name..."team A" is so lame. Who has the creative bone here?<br><br>
How are your workouts coming along? I'm going to attempt to get on the treadmill today for a few miles of walking. The stiffness in my body from yesterday's marathon is pretty tough, though. I just took some Tylenol so I should be able to get a few miles in later on today.<br><br>
What encourages you when you are training?<br><br>
BTW, who is our team captain? Did roots decide to even have team captains?<br><br>
Here's to an awesome week and some big numbers on our scoreboard! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Go team A!!<br><br>
or whatever in the hell we decide to be called!<br><br>
This will be a recovery week for me, but I'm going to try to get in some miles... more towards the end of the week.

Hey Team A!!<br><br>
Not it in the Creative section. So whatever name we come up with is great to me.<br><br>
Workouts have been going ok. Last night the wind decided to pick up and it was snowing again so it made for an interesting run. Hoping that the wind dies down for tommorow's hill workout.

- Keep the results coming in. Still missing results for some players. Also, Liath is out all week skiing. He'll be back next weekend and will add scores then.<br><br>
- I've set up a sheet to keep score and updating the leaderboard will be simpler than expected. I plan to update the team standings once per day. The Top 5 categories will be updated on Mondays and Thursdays.<br><br><br>
WAY TO GO FOX-RUNR AND VOODOOJUNKIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

don't worry. I will pick up any tapering slack in two weeks. This is even more motivation for my race!!! That would be 400 points!!!!!!!!! We will totally take the lead <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

I am on a recovery week after two higher-mileage weeks, and I've got a lotta work to do at the chateau, so my input will be lower this week. Next week I'll definitely pick up the slack.<br><br>
As far as motivation, things like this that hold me accountable help keep me motivated. But mainly, it's knowing that if I don't keep up with my running schedule, I won't be ready for the race.

26.2 is as far as I've ever - or could ever run. I am so in awe of your goal.

Actually it was two. One Saturday and one Sunday. <a href="http://www.seabrookmarathon.org/index.php?q=main" target="_blank">Seabrook Lucky Trails</a>. A small but very well run event.<br><br>
I'm a little sore!

I am in low mileage weeks right now. I'm training for a sprint tri and a half marathon, but the half isn't for some time now.<br><br>
Livi is sick so I can't take her to the gym to get my pool workout in. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> I'll go later after she's in bed.
