Am I really first??<br><br>
Its a grand ole day in the neighborhood.... I did the 3/3 run/walk today & it felt great. I'm back to feeling like I could do more!! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
As it turns out, there was a layer of dust on top of the headboard on my bed... I cleaned it last night & woke up without a headache this morning.<br><br>
Off to shower, getting kids ready for school & work..

~60 F<br><br>
winds: 23 mph (sustained with gusts to 40 mph)<br><br>
Running the 2.25 miles to the W&M track was a breeze...<br>
Running the 800's on track was fine one way but not the other<br>
Running the 2.25 miles back to the rec. center was all Bob Seeger...<br><br>
You want some numbers?<br>
Okay:<br>
mile 2 and mile 5 are the same just opposite.<br>
Mile 2: 9:47<br>
Mile 5: 11:32

Today was a recovery day for me as my legs need to recover from yesterday's windy 14 miler with 5x7 minutes repeats run at a moderate pace (tempo).<br><br>
6 miles recovery in an hour. Avg. HR 123. Still windy but at least it shifted to being a crosswind today.<br><br>

Rindaroo - glad you're feeling better. Want to come dust in S. TX.?<br>
Hi Rose and Breger - nice runs in the wind.<br><br>
Today was the first day we haven't had the killer winds in 2 weeks. Today was irc. 55 degrees, low humidity, NO wind at all, and a moon you could reach out and touch. 6 miles at 7:30 avg. Will pick up 7 more tonight.<br><br>

No matter what I do, I'm going to get in trouble here. Because I kind of want to write more about last night's run. If I post yesterday in today, I'll get in trouble. However, if I move over to yesterday to post about yesterday today, Choovie will come out of hiding and smack me.<br><br>
Well, I suppose that if that brings Choovie out of hiding, that would be an OK thing. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> But I'll stay here.<br><br>
I had to drag myself out the door after work last night and was prepared to be discontent.<br><br><i>These stoopid shoes always make my feet hurt</i>. Except they didn't.<br><i>It's grey and cloudy.</i> Except the clouds made a safe blanket for the tender new plants last night.<br><i>There's a breeze.</i> Except it kept clocking around behind me.<br><i>I have to run over the stoopid golf course hill</i>. Except, look! Here are a few team-mates! They give me a high-five on the hill!<br><i>It's raining.</i> And feeding all that beautiful green grass<br><i>Salt is stinging my eyes.</i> It's actually warm enough to sweat!<br><i>It's raining hard.</i> ...and I haven't melted, and the rain is washing my face clean.<br><i>I'm blind! I'm blind!</i> No, that's the "sun." It's streaming through the clouds and the rain and is turning the world into falling diamonds everywhere. Rainbows form behind me and I run into the shimmering curtain, happy.<br><br>
How is a girl supposed to be in a bad mood during a run like this?<br><br>
Tonight: The Track. I'm in trouble with The Scot for blowing off the Maundy Thursday service for a workout, but I need to run hard more than I need my heart ripped out and stomped on.<br><br>
Finally, a few pix I dug out of the archives, in response to cavemen on the POTD thread who want more of Mustang Sally in a Kilt.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://i26.tinypic.com/fxccb7.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><i>ca. 1992 Damn, I was young.</i><br><br><img alt="" src="http://i26.tinypic.com/33e1kc5.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><i>On Parade, at the Royal Naval Dockyard</i><br><br><img alt="" src="http://i29.tinypic.com/4lugi.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><i>Dear, sweet Arfenarf, beating upwind while the competition flies down to the mark. What a golden day that was.</i>

Good Morning All,<br><br>
MS, UR so cool. Please write a book if you'd like about last night's run. I'd buy a copy.<br><br>
Today was a good day for an ez 6 miler, 4th day in a row of running, so I wanted to take it nice and slow. There was a little drizzle in the air, 38 degrees, no wind - another peaceful morning in the Commonwealth. Ended up with my typical pace: 50:18, 8:23/mile. I'll rest tomorrow in the gym, with iron.<br><br>
Peace Out!<br>
Mike

Nice runs, folks.<br><br>
Rosie, now that song is stuck in my head. How many times does he sing "against the wind"? It must be hundreds.<br><br>
Groovy photos, MS. But they're just going to get the cavemen all worked up.<br><br>
I wish I was out there with all you fine runners. Enjoy!

Awesome, awesome pictures, Sal.<br><br>
Rest day for me! A real rest day; not even any swimming!

What could be better than an MS smile and a cherub I ask you?<br><br>
Dromedary - I was thinking I ought to be home with mrs ccrunr instead of running with the boys this morning when I saw the moon <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Rosie - mrs ccrunr is cautiously beginning to run again. So far so good and no pain.<br><br>
((Millbot))<br><br>
I miss the Choovenator very much.<img alt="sad2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif"><br><br>
What do you think SS?

Mustang Sally, you are gorgeous! Love the uniform... I'm sure others will too! And yes, thank you for posting yesterday's run (stay tuned, I'm gonna follow suit). And I agree wholeheartedly about Maundy Thursday...<br><br>
Cute baby, RCG! I can't remember... neighbor's baby that you care for?<br><br>
{{{millbot}}}<br><br>
Ok, my turn: after a full day of meetings and sitting on my butt all day, and before the obligatory dinner out... HAD to get my 8 miles in. Too icy outside, and I didn't bring outdoor stuff. Athletic clubs nearby, but too far to walk and the shuttle never showed up (Not that I didn't waste 12 minutes waiting for the 2-3 minute shuttle...). So, I ended up in the hot stuffy cramped "fitness room" (i.e., spare closet so let's stuff 5 pieces of workout equip in here!) for 8 carpy miles... Thank god for Solarmixes 6 and 8 but they were hard pressed to save that run.<br><br>
The best part was with 1.5 to go, the cigarette smoke drifting into the vent from the staff smoking at the side of the building. Oh yes, that was good.<br>
I think today will be a rest day... I'll have plenty of time to run tomorrow after work and I think I'll need it. Won't be home tonight till after 7....<br><br>
Have a good day everyone!

Mill - I'm sad your ITBS is flaring up again. ITBS sure teaches patience doesn't it?<br><br>
Rose - look at those cheekers!! gosh, what a cute baby!<br><br>
Love that kilt picture Sal!!<br><br>
I sketched in 5 mi tonight after work, but forgot about a dinner/gala event at the country club that I rsvp'd for - a company paid shindig (do they do shindig's at country clubs? or are they called something else?). so I'll switch out my planned Friday rest day for today and do a slow 5 miles tomorrow, since I'm doing 18 on Saturday. But I'm actually glad I am not doing my run today. After how I felt from last night's run, I think I need a day to not run.

Fantastic early morning run - I saw Rtravers along the route - which is always a joy.<br><br>
Rosie - Ms B is gorgeous.<br><br>
Mustang - thank you so much for sharing yesterday's run - it definitely needs to be here as yesterday is, well ... over??? On another note - do you have any thoughts or information about dogs being treated for joint pain caused by arthritis with prednisone? Our vet said only for spinal issues, but I am not sure about this. I am not worried about longterm side effects - Ms Spointy is 15 - she needs more comfort right now.

VanFlein, are you traveling again?<br>
Wow.<br><br>
I watch the baby while her mother goes to class. She took last semester off (baby was born with intestinal atresia, post-surgery is fine) Anyway, her mother is my friends' daughter. Sort of accidental grandparents but all is well and three generations live together.<br><br>
Since Grandad and Granmom both work, I watch the baby on Mondays and Wednesdays.<br><br>
Now.<br>
You all.<br>
Choovie is a jet-setter. She and mrchoovie should have flown home yesterday. She had little access to a computer and I certainly didn't let her use mine... We were too busy DANCING!<br><br>
We had a blast.<br>
I can't wait for her race report...

I've been patient long enough! <img alt="mad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/mad.gif"><br><br>
ITBS is teaching me to hate injuries.<br><span style="font-size:small;">ITBS</span> <img alt="fimpact.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/fimpact.gif"><br><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;">I'm okay, really. I know I'll be out there soon.</span>

millbodacious,<br><br>
I'm sorry that you are injured. I guess you'll have to dethrone the King of rehAAb...<br><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;">oh yeah. And you can imagine how many times that song was able to run through my mind this morning... I swear I was running in place at times due to the wind holding me back. Here's another song to put in your head... Feet Don't Fail Me Now, I say feet don't fail me now</span>

<i>Mustang Sally croons soothing noises and tells Millbot it's going to be all right.</i><br><br>
Your foam roller is going to be your new best friend. You will find that you have a complicated relationship with your new best friend, but the painful parts will be worth it in the long run. And sooner than you think, my fren, you'll be back out there for a good, long, run.<br><br>
Peace.
