<p>I was able to crank out another 6.x miles with an average pace of 9"26.  My pace really sucks right now but I am blaming it all on the humidity.  HOPEFULLY, when the weather starts cooling off my pace will improve.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a good weekend everyone!</p>

<p>Nice job FB -- hope it cools down for you soon...</p>
<p>Good luck with the 12 BBS.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I added an extra mile out and an extra mile back to stretch my mountain road run to 10 miles. Still feeling very good... running without a watch has really helped me keep it nice and easy while I build my base back up...</p>

<p>FB--nicely done.</p>
<p>BBS--hoepfully you are enjoying a nice long one!</p>
<p>loopy--yah, some times it's nice to ditch the electronics and just run for the hell of it.</p>
<p>z--nice easy one there.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Fishbowl again for me this morning.  Couple of bunnies to chase.  Not sure if that helped or not!</p>

<p>I posted a thread over in MS yesterday, but since y'all probably don't wander over there, here's the link to the youtube-- <a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/HFPracing1#g/u" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/user/HFPracing1#g/u</a> .  It's a long video showing clips of Buckeye Challenge tri.  If you want to skip ahead, there's a quick clip of me around 5:50.  Royal blue Voler trisuit, right as I'm getting on the bike.</p>

<p>Well, I've hit a wall this week.  Body's still tired.  Won't run today and I'm not going to run tomorrow unless I feel totally rested.  A bit frustrated after a string of good weeks. </p>

<p>Hullo, running friends/peeps/freaks.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>FlBoiler</strong> -- Nothing sucks the speed more than humidity (and wind).  Good job.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>BBS</strong> -- Excited for your training cycle.  Enjoy that 12.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>loopy</strong> -- Let me say again how nice it is to have you back on a daily basis. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Zrun</strong> -- Nice recovery run, Gumby. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>4boys</strong> -- Cool action video!  Thank you for sharing.  :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Dan</strong> -- A little down day amid a bunch of good ones.  No biggie.  You'll be back at it this weekend, I'll bet.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Kevin</strong> -- Rest yer bones.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Me</strong> -- Recovery double yesterday in the heat after Wednesday's hot and draining 15.  12 on tap for today.  Recovery tomorrow, then Sunday I'm doing a 30K race called the "Payette Lake Run" in beautiful McCall.  Gonna use it as a pace run.  Couple hundred participants.  Should be great fun. </p>

<p>Morning folks...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Looking forward to the 3-day weekend. No races scheduled though I could jump in a Master's track meet tomorrow if I feel like it. Right now I think I'd rather just do the 20-miler I've got on the sked. Earl's bringing some much needed cooler weather in starting tomorrow and that makes it the perfect day for a long run. With all the humidity we've had this summer I'd have to be a fool to let such an opportunity pass.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Today - not sure but keeping an open mind. I could go midday with the work buddy again or hit the trails on the way home this evening. Or maybe both. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Funny story - well amusing anyway. I signed up the MCM 10k on 10/31. That's the 10k companion to the much more famous marathon race, and I'm using it as my final polishing/tuneup for New York, which is the following weekend. When I did the app, I put my "estimated time" down as 39:00 -- a little ambitious but well within the realm of possibilities. Then yesterday I got an email from the race organizer asking for verification, because that time would put me in the elites. That's a little flattering, but since when is 39:00 an elite 10k time? Truly elite 10k would be more like 29:00, not 39:00. So I sent the guy my recent PR at several races - I don't have any good 10k results to send because I haven't done many - and used McMillan's calculator to project my time. Using that method consistently put me at about 39:30. So who knows, I just might be lining up with the really big boys & girls (who no doubt will wonder what the hell I'm doing there).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>FB - agree on the humidity. This summer has been a boiler and I usually like the summer.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BBS/JD - hope the dozen went down well.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>loopy - nice base building</p>
<p> </p>
<p>zrun - going long tomorrow?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>4bm - we have bunnies at home as pets. But they don't swim very well.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Dan - there's always ups and downs on the road back. Get 'em tomorrow.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>kevin - good luck on the 10k</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Chances - something tells me you're going come away from your little pace run tomorrow with some hardware.</p>

<p>Nice going all. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I took the day off work to recover from our 5th anniversary dinner last night.  Planning get in an easy 10 this afternoon.  This week has been very light on miles.  A storm blew through and dropped the temps be 20F... hopefully it'll hold through Monday to give me a shot at a decent HM time.  The is at the same location as the 5k I won in 2008.  Fat chance of winning the HM...</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Hawk</strong> - do we have to call you Sir Hawk since you are now in the elite?</p>

<p><strong>Hawk</strong> -- Whaddayamean?  You've always been elite in my book.  Go hang with the big dogs in the tall weeds.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My 12 went okay.  I'm tired of the heat.  And if I get any more direct sun on my body, folks are going to mistake me for some exotic Mediterranean sort.  Can't have that.</p>
