6 easy miles by the moonlight<br><br>
Puddinhead wanted to keep going and going, so I took her all six miles. Now she's sleeping, while I go to work so I can continue to maintain her in luxury.

Susan, rest good.<br>

Nice running KS and Millbot. Triple J, I must've missed what's on your schedule for this weekend...a race, I presume. You're running very well right now.<br><br>
Susan, my rule is if I'm not feeling significantly better after a week of illness I go to the dr. I hope it's nothing a some antibiotics and rest won't fix.<br><br>
Tammy, here's wishing a belated happy anniversary to you. I hope it was a good one. (Nine years is nothing to sneeze at, either).<br><br>
Choovie, I remember the show "Wise Guy". Yeah, I loved that Ken Wahl...whatever happened to him? (Perhaps he's not aged well, but he was hawt back then).<br><br>
Johnny, I'm sorry about the loss of your friend. It's a sad truth that the older we get, the more funerals we must attend. I often thought that must have been very hard on my grandmother, who lived to be 99 1/2. (Towards the end she lived in a home for the elderly, where most of the other residents were young enough to be her children - she had no contemporaries left.)<br><br>
Ah, my run...yes, it was a wonderful 3 miles under an enormous moon. I chose a route that had some pretty big, long, hills but I felt really good. What a way to start the day!<br><br>
I must get back to work. Have a great day.<br><br>
ETA: Sally, I just went back and read about your poor doggy. I hope you find what ails him. And best of luck on your running plan ala your new doctor. (I keep telling myself "I have time", too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">)

good morning everyone!<br><br>
I'll try to get in a run later this afternoon. If I get my research done today, I plan on leaving at 3:30, so I can get in an hours worth of running and be home at my normal time this evening.<br><br>
Thanks again for the anniversary wishes everyone! We had a nice low key evening. MIL made us a good dinner and then after DS went to bed, DH I watched the season premiere of Criminal Minds (love that show!!). It is not often we just sit and chill on the couch together, so it was nice. I think I've mentioned before that my husband is a crew chief for a blown alcohol altered drag car - well, they were down here in So. Oregon this past weekend (car is out of washington) and they took first place. They leave for the big national meet in Bakersfield, CA in less than two weeks. Anyways, the husband and wife that own and drive this car invited us to their home for Thanksgiving this year. They live in Snohomish, WA - about 45 min out of Seattle. At first, I thought "ughh, that's a long drive! 8hrs!), then I started thinking . . . . hmmm, Seattle Marathon is that weekend . . . my 41st bday is that weekend . . . hmm, this could be fun!" Still thinking on it though . . . .

Good Job all you Moon runners.<br><br>
I just can't get myself out that early for some reason.<br><br>
Every time I read the daily I am impressed with the effort that everyone puts into whatever running they are doing. It motivates me and inspires too. Susan get well quick.<br><br>
For Me today.<br><br>
fall is here in the great midwest.<br><br>
ran at lunch Temp 82 and Sunny.<br><br>
intended to do 6 than decided to do 8 and ended up with 10.1 in 1h 46m and I feel pretty good.<br><br>
This will be my last longish run before a half on the seventh. For my train up I've averaged 25mpw with longs of<br><br>
11.2/2 Sep<br>
13/9 Sep<br>
10.6/22 Sep<br>
10.1/27Sep<br><br>
I am declaring myself ready<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/hello2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hello1"><br><br>
It's a big deal for me. The last race I ran was the VB half in Sept of 2004. I hurt my back and hadn't run with any consistency until July of this year. I actually feel like I'm back.

I finally dragged my sorry ass to the dr. and found out that I have a sinus infection <no surprise>. Got an Rx for antibiotics for 10 days and need to call if I'm still feeling crappy after 3 days of the drugs. In any case, I fully expect to feel much better quickly and hopefully my running will reflect that! I want to feel tip-top by Columbus day weekend b/c hubby and I are going away to the Adirondacks for a romantic weekend then to celebrate our 3rd anniversary. And yes, we're bringing the dynamic duo, Truffle & Remy.<br><br>

YAY Roadhawk! I think you are ready too and I can't wait to hear how the Half goes for you!<br><br>
well, I'm leaving work at 3:30 and will get in a run. It's sunny and about 80 today, but tomorrow's forecast, and even the extended forecast, are calling for cool (mid 60's) and rain, gray, gloom - typically winter around here. Hard to believe tomorrow's high is only supposed to be 59, when it's so nice today! And even though I'm not normally a warm weather runner (prefer early a.m.'s when it's still cool), I will run outdoors and let that warm sun soak into my skin, since it might be quite some time before I feel that again. . . . I'll map out a 6-7 mile run. That should make me sufficiently sweaty . . .

Swam at lunchtime. The water felt thick. It took quite a while for me to feel like I was moving well through it. Ah, well. More work now, and then up to the track this evening...

I'm not going to get to know you guys if I don't post consistently! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"> Bad me.<br><br>
I was sick as a dog yesterday, today better but no runs or lifting happening today. Tomorrow, the plan is a mountain trail run and then stopping at the gym on the way back to lift and the dreaded weekly weigh in.<br><br>
riley003, sorry you're sick! I feel your pain. Hope the drugs clear it up quickly!<br><br>
fullmoon runners, nice job... I am not ready to be running in the low 30's yet, though I better adjust my thinking... now! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad10.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sad10">

ksrunr and millbot.......nice lunar runs<br><br>
riley....glad you finally got diagnosed....now take those meds and get well....and happy anniversary in advance in case I forget<br><br>
tripleJ....I have read of the moneghetti interval workout. I'm surprised you would do it 2 days before a 10k race. Hope you recovery nicely.<br><br>
roadhawk....welcome back....sounds like you are ready to lace em up tight and nail that half<br><br>
ilene.....yes, definitely pick up the mileage.....a day and a half of taper should be plenty<br><br>
sal....did you wear your prescription goggles for swimming? That "thick water" comment made me wonder if you didn't dive in at the water treatment facility.<br><br>
tomwhite....speaking of your new shoes...glad they are doing the trick. There is an excellent running store on Campbell Station Rd near your running spot in K-town. The Runners Market, which has always been on Kingston Pike in Bearden has a new store there right near the Mellow Mushroom.<br><br>
i too get motivation from seeing everyone else posting their workouts. At CR I didn't post in the daily thread very often because I ran late in the day and there were typically pages and pages to the thread by that time. The shorter threads make it a bit easier to keep up here, at least for us simple minded types. Unlike some of youwho seem to do several HARD workouts per week, I find that I have to limit those. I do one track workout per week, and typically one tempo run or perhaps a hill workout. The rest of my runs are easy, although I try to toss in a few striders twice per week just to keep the legs fresh. Today...a not too difficult 4.5 mile tempo run that felt about as good as anything has since the summer heat rolled in. I would guess it had something to do with temps being only in the mid 80's......HOORAY!

Rockie......hope you feel better soon. Those mountain trails have a way of promoting quick healing. Close one eye at the weigh-in and blink with the other. Then just guess at what you THOUGHT it said.<br><br>
Ken.....rest is important....just considering it weekend prep.

Hi, Rockyrunner! I hope you're feeling better soon! Have you had snow yet?<br><br>
Ken, it's nice when the rest days coincide with busy days at work <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">.<br><br>
I'm just checkin' in while I wait for our dinner to cook. I'm feeling great after this morning's run. I know you're all sick of hearing about my hip, but I'm tuned into it like a mother to her baby! And it's not crying today. I'm planning a trail run in Manhattan, KS this weekend. There's a really nice trail through the Konza Prairie that I can't wait to run early Sat. morning. I'll try to get some pictures and post them.<br><br>
Oh, Riley, happy anniversary!
