Way to take it nice and slow Grizz. You are most sure to utterly dominate anything you try to do come marathon day.<br><br>
I too am achey but don't know why...stretched and took a rest day yesterday with a self-inflicted massage while in the hot tub, and used the Stick. Didn't have any ice available but I did do that a lot 2 days ago, so I am pretty unsure of what to do when my calves start yelling at me like this after races.<br><br>
Just the 3200m tonight so hopefully my legs simmer down.<br><br>
Alex - I hope so too - Have a good race<br><br>
15 miles on TM with [email protected] I pace with .5 recovery. I-Pace today was 10.0 MPH and 1.5% incline Nice workout, but not "Killa"<br><br>
Good running to all -
Mikey- 6:00pace is my I-pace. I imagine that 10mph is closer to your T-pace. TM limitations?<br><br>
Going to run trails tonight. Body feeling okay to try a marathon on Sunday.<br><br>
In last night's run I channeled Lofcaudio. Hope it works.
*laughing at Roots* Be careful what you wish for!<br><br>
Good running everyone. It looks like everyone is right on course for wherever it is you are going. I ran 8 easy miles in the rain this morning. It was fairly comfortable. It appears that I won't be needing my shirts for a while.<br><br>
My wife and I are planning on running a marathon together in the fall with the goal of getting her across the finish line sub-3:41 so that she can join me in next year's Boston Marathon. We've got October 21st circled on our calendars, but haven't decided if we will run Detroit or Columbus. Any advice?<br><br>
As always, may your runs be fun and your rest relaxing.
Ran both. If having to choose between the two, definately Columbus. A smaller but quality field, easy access, and a good race course. Not as completely flat as they advertise, but it is a flat course. The city does a nice job with it.
Well, I managed to do the same run as last night - around 2 and a quarter miles, only some 30 seconds faster than last night, without trying to run faster, except over the last 50 when I kicked a little. Sweating heavy as its very warm for a Dublin evening, but really enjoyed the run.<br><br>
For those racing around Canada this weekend, have a great time and good luck - that goes equally if you're racing anywhere in the world too.....
Today is a "rest" day. I use rest loosely as in I didn't go for a run. I have been walking/working a trade show for 2 days now, so I am pretty sure I have walked 800 miles. I wish I would have worn my pedometer to confirm this, but I forgot. So I guess no VRAA points for all this walking...
Nice running folks. Keep it up.<br><br>

Nice night for a run. Temps in the 60s with sunny skies. A bit windy but not too bad.<br><br>
Tonight the plan was 5 miles at a recovery pace. It was needed after the last few nights where I pushed a bit harder than I should have.<br><b>Run Segments<br>

4 miles in 42:48. It felt pretty good. I also did a 10 minute ab workout on a pilates dvd I got from netflix. I have no ab strength at all.<br><br>
I went ahead and signed up for the 5k prison run next week. Mr jebba says it's fine for me to run it. I'm going to run, but not race it; I have a slow friend I will run with to keep me honest about taking it easy. I'll also check with my ob/gyn, as I have my 6 week post partum appointment the day before the run. It'll be a very small field of runners, so I am trying to psych myself out to come in last.
I ran my 5.25 mile route again. I was really tired and just didn't want to run, but I dragged myself out there because I won't have the opportunity to run tomorrow since I'll be leaving the house around 5:15 am and won't be getting home until after 7 pm. Anyway, my run went really well. I decided to do sort of a tempo run and picked up the pace for about 20 minutes in the middle of my run. I'm sad to say that my tempo pace today was still about 15 seconds slower per mile than my marathon pace last October...but I'll take it for now.
Ran 5 in 49:11 on a very flat route. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> Running buddy isn't feeling well, so I went alone. I thought I would go more slowly without him there to try and keep up with, even though I am never actually able to keep up.
