<p>Got 3 miles done this morning but they didn't feel very good.  I was dehydrated from yesterday.  Should have known better and had more to drink after the race last night.  Ah well.  I've got a pic, but they got me from behind.  The guy making the face at Evelyn is Dr. Milburn.  He's one of our local fasties and an ironman.  The guy with the bullhorn is another fastie and won the Fiddlers marathon last year.  He did a great job putting this race together, it was a lot of fun.</p>

<p>I want a running dress!  No, wait, correction, I want to look as good in a running dress as <strong>Clare</strong> does! You look mah-velous!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I ran 6 last night - felt gooood, mentally and physically.  Not happy about it getting dark earlier.  It was cool-ish out but dang it was buggy!  I hate it when it's kinda dark and I can't see them coming and they hit my eyes and get in my nose and mouth.  At least I didn't choke on one this time. Sunday morning's run I took one in and was hacking and retching on the boulevard and as I was bent over an abdominal muscle seized and cramped up.  So then I was trying get upright to get rid of the cramp, still coughing and dry heaving.  I'm surprised nobody called 911.  I'm sure I looked like I was having a seizure.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I brought my gym bag to run over lunch break - 3-4 miles.  Whee!  It's supposed to be speedwork day but it's not going to work out for that.  I took Tuesday as a rest day and that's muddled things up a bit.  I don't think I should do my speedwork tomorrow when I have a LR on Saturday, although I only have 12 miles to run and the training group is running 20 so I could NOT run with them and put it off until Sunday. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Annnd I get to mow the lawn after work.  It's gonna be a three shower day!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Happy Running and Fitnessing everybodeeeeee!!</p>

<p>I got a miserable, slow 2 this morning. I am so not used to humidity.  85* felt worse than 105 yesterday. My stomach was doing flips the whole time so I ended up walking way more than I wanted to.  Blech!</p>

<p>Thanks, guys!  I got that dress because I liked how good it looked on <strong>Nettie. </strong> I have one in black, too.  Super comfy!  I like the look on Evelyn's face as Chris is making faces at her...so serious!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I did that mile in 8:49, pushing both girls, 90 degrees.  Once I got past people I felt like I was flying.  I still think I could do it faster now.  Think I'll give it a try sometime, just to see.  Alone, too, to see the difference. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>The guy who won did it in 4:44 (I thought I heard someone say 4:20 something last night but I saw the results today online).  FAST!</p>

<p>Got in my first post-swim-clinic swim yesterday - 1200 yd of mostly drills to try to reinforce everything I was taught, with some backstroke/kickboard/breaststroke laps to break it up.  It seemed to be going pretty well - just knowing the places where I tend to have form breakdowns is really helpful.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Gonna' head out for somewhere between 5-6 after work today.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nice race <strong>clare</strong> - and yeah, you look great in that running dress!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Tonya</strong> - good luck with that OWS!  Is this your first one?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good runs, workouts and/or rest days to you all</p>

<p>Morning Gang -</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Yep, <strong>Clare</strong> looks great in that <span style="color:rgb(255,102,204);">pink</span> running dress.   I couldn't do the dress thing - even though it's a running dress, I'd feel like I was going in to work.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>BigG</strong> - if your LR is only 12, I think you should do the speedwork tomorrow and then run the 12 at a slower pace (or move it to Sunday like you suggested).  Otherwise that leaves you with doing the speedwork Sunday after your 12 and that will be more difficult, or you may end up skipping it.  Just my 2 cents.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Speaking of speedwork - <strong>Jill</strong> had nice intervals today.  Woot!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I got 10 miles done this morning.  It was supposed to be 12, but dewpoint must have been high cause I was a sweaty mess and could only run super slow - so I cut it off at 10 since the time it took me was the same time I should have been able to do 12 in!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Repost from later in the day yesterday:  Do any <strong>MN Peeps</strong> know anything about <strong>Mora HM</strong> course?  I'm gonna do it Saturday (as MP training run) and would like to know what I'm getting into!</p>

I haven't run Mora.  I looked at it last year and it did seem to be a lot on open country roads with little shade.  Just plan accordingly.  It might be getting warm again (boo)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ran 5 last night - it sucked.  Felt all out of whiggity whack and was huffing and puffing.  Might today off in prep for the relay.  I did find a skirt to wear at the end and am putting on the finishing touches on the shirt (check out my facebook for the pic!).</p>

<p>Great job on the race <strong>Clare!!</strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, I went to the LRS for the Wed night run last night.  The Brooks Run Happy Cavalcade of Curiosities Bus was there and it was a great time.  Lots of beer was consumed post run.  Oh, and I won a free pair of Brooks shoes in the drawing at the end.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif" style="width:33px;height:35px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'll run something today, probably at lunch.  I have a soccer coaches meeting to speak at tonight.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, here's something that's posted on the Runnersworld.com site.  Might works as a <strong>QOD</strong> for us today:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hilarious poll on runnersworld.com: What would you do if a friend who's a bad cook invited you to a prerace dinner?<br>
A. Accept the invitation and eat whatever they serve.<br>
B. Go to the dinner but eat beforehand, so you don't need to eat much while there.<br>
C. Make up an excuse to not go, even if it might hurt their feelings.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>BTW, I really enjoy homecooked pre-race meals better than the official marathon meal or going out to a restaruant.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Moe</strong> hosted an awesome meal at her house prior to Boston. Thanks Moe, it was GREAT!!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And, LL had me tag along to a pre-race meal that one of his track club team mates cooked in the galley of their sail boat in the marina in Baltimore.  We had pasta, bread and wine on a picnic table over looking the inner harbor the night before the Baltimore marathon.  Another great pre-race meal / experience.  Thanks <strong>LL</strong> for letting me tag along. </p>

<p><strong>Clare</strong> - Love the photo of you with your little one!  You're such a great example to your children.  What brand is your running dress?  I love the way it looks.  I swear by running skirts, but have been curious about the running dresses.  Have you run long distances wearing it?  Are there pockets?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I got out this morning for a quick 4.25 miles.  It's been a high mileage week for me and this month will be my highest ever.  Love that!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Headed to the beach again today to dig holes for the kids, build sandcastles and ride the boogie board.   <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>

<p><strong>QOD</strong> - totally reminds me of the lyrics from Rappers Delight (FWIW, I say B as well)</p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-size:11px;"><em>Have you weve went over a friend's house to eat<br>
And the food just ain't no good<br>
I mean the macaroni's soggy, the peas are mushed<br>
and the chicken tastes like wood</em></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-size:11px;"><em>So you try to play it off like you think you can<br>
By sayin' that you're full<br>
And then your friend says, "Mama, he's just being polite<br>
He ain't finished, uh-huh, that's bull."</em></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-size:11px;"><em>So your heart starts pumpin' and you think of a lie<br>
And you say that you already ate<br>
And your friend says, "Man, there's plenty of food!"<br>
So he piles some more on your plate</em></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-size:11px;"><em>While the stinky food's steamin', your mind starts a dreamin'<br>
Of the moment it's time to leave<br>
And then you look at your plate and your chicken's slowly rottin'<br>
Into something that looks like cheese</em></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-size:11px;"><em>And you say, "That's it, I got to leave this place<br>
I don't care what these people think<br>
I'm just sittin' here makin' myself nauseous<br>
with this ugly food that stinks!"</em></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-size:11px;"><em>So you bust out the door while it's still closed<br>
Still sick from the food you ate<br>
And then you run to the store for quick relief<br>
From a bottle of Kaopectate</em></span></p>

Like you need another pair!   Brooks whore!   <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/lol.gif" title=""><img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Cherl</strong> - nice running!  How are you feeling about St. George?  And do you plan to spend any time in Zion before or after?   My little sis just spent a weekend there last and captured some AMAZING images - so jealous!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>QOD</strong> - I'd B. (Go to the dinner but eat beforehand, so you don't need to eat much while there) as well - love the company but don't wanna chance bad tummy mojo. </p>

<p>Thanks for the good vibes on the OWS.  2 words for ya - EPIC FAIL.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I went to the lake where the tri will be held - talked to the parks and rec people - there is no public swimming allowed.  So I go to my local Y to swim some laps.  No energy, bad breathing, blah, blah, blah.... I cut it off some where ~500-600m. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>So now I think that until I can find a local lake, I need to drive to 30-45 min to Lake Michigan and do it there.  Gah!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The problem of course is that the swimming is my weakest leg, and this doesn't exactly fill me with confidence.</p>
