<p>Good Morning,</p>
<p> I ran by the ducks this morning, They didn't answer my hello or my quack.  I also did not step on, nearly step on, or even see for that matter any eggs on the sidewalk or in the grass near the sidewalk.  My run was a just a Friday run. I thought I was going faster than a 9:49 pace, but I guess 2 , 2 minute walks on a 5.2x mile run can do that to your pace.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Maybe next week will be better.</p>

<p>Well done <strong>FB</strong>.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I got about 5.5 miles done this morning, pace is 1 minute faster on average than it has been in the last few weeks. I'm not one to use the smilies, but ...  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/headbang.gif" title=""></p>

<p>Nice job Eric, and way to go Jill!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Off for an early run before hanging out at the coaches. Then off to the Twin Cities for the afternoon with a teammate and concert tonight. Believe it or not, this is the first official concert I've ever been to. I've been to shows at my school auditorium and on campus, but I don't know how much those really count haha. Have a great day everyone!</p>

<p>Morning...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>FB - Glad to hear your duck etiquette is improving.  Now you just need to work on your intonation when communicating with them. </p>
<p>Jill - That's great to hear.  Must feel great.</p>
<p>Alex - First concert?  What concert is it?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Rest day here. </p>

<p>Hey all, early start to the weekend for me.   Just have a few e-mails to send out and then off to Indy to see my nephew play his first varsity football game.   Easy 4 for me on the trails this morning at 8:20-25 pace in the thick air felt good.  Hamstring is turning the corner, I think the PT/yoga is paying off.   Just have to figure out how to readjust my schedule from here on in.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>FB - Nice job, I didn't see any ducks today, but something dived in the lake behind me as I ran by and gave me a start.</p>
<p>Jill - Yay!  I bet you got a pickup from doing the speedwork yesterday.</p>
<p>Alex - Enjoy the show, you have to bring your cel phone instead of lighters to hold up - - isn't that what the kids do these days :)</p>
<p>Dan - Have a good rest day.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a great weekend, all!</p>

<p>Jill--nicely done!</p>
<p>Alex--enjoy the concert!</p>
<p>Dan--rest up!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nuthin' here.  Considered a ride today, but that ain't happening.  So, resting and getting things together for Sunday's race.  Got an email from the RD yesterday.  They have changed the bike course.  Great.......  The course had gotten me the past two years, so this year son1 and I trained on it so that I could OWN it.  No time to ride the new course.  Not a clue what's gonna happen.  Last two years I barely made the bike cut off...</p>

<p>Did my mountain road 8 this morning. Road much quieter now that the Eagles training camp is gone -- I was getting used to the lines of cars filled with fans sporting Eagles jerseys...</p>

<p>Nothing for me today.  Still feeling very funky.  I had a fever all yesterday so stayed home from work.  Dealing with a toddler in that condition is no fun.  Will likely scratch on the 10k tomorrow.  All rather annoying.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>BBS -</strong> prolly?  enjoy the rest?</p>
<p><strong>kfuller</strong> - enjoy the core</p>
<p><strong>Loopy</strong> - nice going on the 8.</p>
<p><strong>4boysmom</strong> - enjoy the rest.</p>
<p><strong>zrun</strong> - good news about the hammie.  Have fun on I65...</p>
<p><strong>Dan</strong> - rest up</p>
<p><strong>Alex</strong> - so who you going to see?  Jonas Brothers? ;)</p>
<p><strong>Jill</strong> - smile on with the iron pace</p>
<p><strong>FB</strong> - at least you got your run in. I'm sure the wildlife will return, unless an alligator got them.</p>

<p>TGIF indeed...all the more so for me, because next week I'm on vacation!! <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Today's a recovery day for me, situated as it is between last night's hill repeat session and tomorrow's 18-miler. I'll probably go about 6, either at work this afternoon, on the battlefield trail after work, or possibly on the trail near home ending at the field where my wife will be playing soccer.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>If I end up doing trails, I'll get to try out my new trail shoes...Asics Gel Trail Attacks; they certainly look bad-assed -- black and neon with a very aggressive tread design. Hopefully these will finally be the trail shoes that work for me. So far I've gone through the Brooks Cascadias (that are supposedly the best), Under Armour Chimeras, and even a shoe from Asolo, an Italian company and all have let me down in one aspect or another.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BTW a little more on last night's workout. As I mentioned last night it's 0.45 miles from bottom to top. Total elevation change is about 100 ft. Incline varies -- near the bottom it's only 1-2% but then it jumps to about 4%, then all the way to 11% before leveling out for a flat finish the last 0.1. I made 6 repeats after only doing 4 on the same hill a month ago. Next month I'll try for 8 and then maybe 10 in October. I ran the repeats at more or less marathon pace which makes it easier to do a high number of them. Had I been trying for 10k pace or faster I'd have been done for sure after 4 repeats.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>FB - good job on the duckless run</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Jill - nice run, I'm gonna have to start calling you the "ironwoman" soon. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Dan/4bm/kevin - have a good rest day</p>
<p> </p>
<p>zrun - excellent to see that progress. I went to grad school at IU and remember what a big deal HS football was there.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>loopy - E-A-G-L...oh never mind, you're probably sick of hearing that by now. Nice run.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Alex - I'd pull up Live Nation and try to figure out what concert you are attending but I'm too lazy. Have fun and what zrun said about the cell phone. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>RA - ugh, that sucks man. Hope it clears up. Bagging the 10k sounds like the right idea though.</p>

<p>Nice day of work everyone...getting stuff done. I'm headed to a show for a "band", I guess you could call them, called The Glitch Mob. Strange music that no one has probably ever heard of...I randomly stumbled across their music in the spring and fell in love, along with my teammate. We get to go to the start of their US tour too, so hopefully they kick things off right. From what I've heard, it's super high energy and a great show. Hopefully I don't fall asleep though, it's from 9-2. :yawn:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a great weekend people!</p>
