<p>An easy, slow, trotting 4.3 miles at 9:55 pace.  Avg HR 126.  (Hi Erika!  Best of Luck on your Equinox this weekend!)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I had hopes to make it to 60 miles again this week.  But due to the travel induced rest day I took last Monday, the low to mid-50's seem more likely.  That'll have to do.  My 2-week Taper starts next week.</p>

<p>Good morning Pink, Ksrunner and bregarcito and those who follows.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I was just scanning the daily from the last few days to try to catch up around here. Sorry to see that Econo will not be posting for a while, I love that girl's fun spirit, but I also understand not having time to post...since I am often in there also. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good to see everyone running well. Erika, good luck at Equinox this weekend. I always look forward to your race reports.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Can someone tell me where is millbot? </p>
<p> </p>
<p>PieJones, good to see you here yesterday!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>{{{{{{{{{{heme}}}}}}} work and knee!.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="color:rgb(68,68,68);font-family:Arial, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12px;">I am a bit tired today since last night we helped our dear friends pack for moving, so I decided to sleep in and go for a run tonight, I was planning on 10-12 miles, but I will be standing up a lot conducting a workshop, so my legs will be tired. I will just have to wait and see, I guess. I got my passport in the mail yesterday. Athens is becoming more and more a reality to me. </span></p>

<p>So I went to the parents house last night and as expected they were devastated by what has happened but also stunned by the amount of people who have written to them. They seem stunned that having coached Brad so long ago I would come to the house personally(I live about 40 miles away). I didn't really know what to say but it was nice to be there and talk. A number of the old team have been invited to the funeral as well.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I then went to hockey and even after 6 years there were only two players on the pad who I had no coached all those years ago. It was fun but I am definately retired. :¬)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>No run for me this morning as last night turned out to be a late night, I forgot how late hockey training went on and how much people can chat when they have not seen each other for a while. Looks like a few of us may make a better job of staying in touch as well.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Lunchtime run was 5.5kms with a chap at work at a very slow pace. He is just getting training again so I spent time talking to him and explaining that as a rule he should run slower than we did today.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Weather here is cold and gray but dry at the moment.</p>

<p>So it's Black-Eyed Peas for our theme today huh Pink?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sorry Gobi.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Mariposai, people come and go based on time and availability. SS hasn't been around either.  I sometimes drop out for a while when I get very busy.  Always fun when people jump back in as time permits.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Today is my first day off since June 28th.  I want to run a solid 20k on Saturday, as opposed to racing through my training as I often do.  And like Bill, my taper begins on Sunday, two weeks out.  So two days before my race is a good off-day I think.  Flex and core work at the Y this morning.  Spareribs</p>

<p>Ilene gets to meet Millbot!!! Aren't those Boomer meetings the best? </p>
<p> </p>
<p>TomWhite - how is that special mat working for you on your legs? Didn't you end up with one of the Chef's mats?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Happy thoughts to you all today!</p>

<p>....so THAT's why that song is going thru my head!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Gobi, good on you to visit with the parents!  You are a class act, my fren!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks for the {{{}}}'s for the knee.  Did an easy 3 miles this morning, and as usual, no pain during, felt better after.  But am being a good girl and following the PT's direction to ice, ice, ice.  Am also following Lab's advice (thanks buddy !!<img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/hello.gif" style="width:25px;height:29px;" title="">) and contacted my family Dr. to get the ball rolling with an orthopedist.  By the time I'll be able to get an appointment, I'll have a good idea if the PT is working or not.  This is Canada, we're talking in terms of a month or more to get a specialist appointment, never mind getting an MRI.  My friend's took about 3 months to get set up.</p>

<p>Good to do that, Gobi. That's gotta be tough.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Stay out of jail, Johnny.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So Econo is gone for a bit, but Seemomgo showed up today! How cool is that? It is good to see folks drop by again, but I can certainly appreciate the full schedule thing. BTW, seeing that story on the cardiologist in CT whose family was murdered (last year?) reminded me of dtoce. Hope the good doctor is doing well and can stop by sometime. (and we had a Meg sighting on RA yesterday!)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks for all the good wishes, everyone. I'm getting excited, but feel pretty good. I've printed off my results from last year and compared them to my training runs, and... well I hate to get overconfident, but things are looking good. Including the weather!! Should be foggy and upper 30's at the start, full sun and upper 50's by the end. Just about perfect, but I will layer up at the start.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Like Ribs, I'm taking a rest day today, too. Seems like the chores and errands really pile up during training though, and I'll be tackling a few of those today and tonight. (hey, got the cranberries I picked last Saturday all cleaned, bagged and in the freezer last night!)</p>

<p>oooo Good Luck this weekend Erika!! That weather report does sound great!  Can't wait to hear how it goes.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I ran 6.3 last night. I would like to run a few tonight also, since I'm not running on Friday. Volunteering checkin at the Palm to Pine 100 miler and then the HS football game after that, so no time for running on Friday. </p>
<p>Sunday I'm participating in a local fund raiser for women's health/cancer screenings. It's a "Wine Walk" at a local vineyard - with 5 'aid stations' along the 3.5 mi route to sample different local wines. A group of about 10 of us from work have formed a corporate sponsored team. It's be low 70's and rainy. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>gobi, I know you aren't looking for kudos, but that was nice of you to stop in and see the family. {{gobi}}</p>
<p> </p>
<p>KS, brrrrr! Was it warmer in your house than it was outdoors?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>john, just bring a get out of jail free card. hey, you never know, it just might work. nice seeing you and Linda for lunch yesterday.just sorry I had to take off so quickly.</p>

<p>Hi All - Nice to see Seemomgo and the rest of you of course....</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Yesterday at this time I was trying to decide if today should be my rest day, and if I should run my race-day-eve workout on Friday, or, if I should run lightly today and rest tomorrow.  As fate might have it, last night before bed, my wife alerted my to the fact that we had a leaky Hot Water tank in the basement.  So I took the morning off from work and replaced some of the plumbing coming into the tank, and now we're up and running and my legs are not.   So it was an easy decision after all.  I made it into work by 12:30 but running time is 12:00, so today is my first rest day in two weeks. I'm not sure how that happened, because the last VRAA round ended a week and a half ago.   Must have been momentum. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>At about the time yesterday that I was musing about running or not running today, I started to get a pain in my chest and back. Once the paranoia ("am I having a heart attack?") subsided, I realized I've done something to my left trapezius and my left pectoral muscle.   It could be the strength training I've been doing, though the weights have been very light; it could be the sledge hammer I was swinging on Saturday at the CC Invitational, setting up the chute and crowd control fencing, but that was 5 days ago now, and yesterday was the first I noticed it; or it could be from doing planks on my left side for too long.  The last couple of times I did them I felt like it was not my abs or obliques failing, but my shoulder, that was causing me to collapse before "time was up". So now I am a little anxious because I have a 5k race on Saturday along with about a half dozen of the co-workers that I've been training for the past 4 months, and I don't know what breathing heavily is going to be like when just breathing deeply at my desk hurts pretty good.  Maybe it's nothing a couple of Tylenols and a can of whoopass can't fix come race day.</p>

<p>tomwhite <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif" title=""> !!!! I'm thinking of that ANYTHING you so nicely have told me I can suggest!!!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Erika - emergency family obligations have prohibited me from participating much over the last three weeks. Thanks for the shout out! Good luck in your race!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Gobi....you're a good guy!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The Boulder Backroads marathon and half marathon have had to be postponed due to wildfires in the area - they have not been rescheduled as of now.....I had not registered for the HM due to above emergency, but now I am thinking it might be a possibility! I so want to go to Royal Vic with all those crazies who are going to be there, but that doesn't look like it will be in the cards. So maybe Boulder?? It's a possibility. Isn't it great to have options?????</p>

<p>Have fun with the possibilities, C-mom!</p>

<p>cool stuff, matt.  literally cool, huh?  Amazing to me that we can see changes over such a short period of time considering the sun is five billion years old.  "We are made of stardust" is one of my favorite quotes from a book I highly recommend to all, <span style="text-decoration:underline;">Thank God for Evolution</span> by Michael Dowd.  We got to hear him speak recently.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Five feeling good miles in pretty decent conditions.  My foot felt good today so I tried not to hold back too much and just let myself enjoy feeling like a runner again.  First split about 11 and gradually down to 10:10.  Using 10 as the default distinction on Sport Tracks between running and jogging, I did 3.66 mi. of jogging and 1.3 mi. of running.  Time for a bottle of Sam Adams Coastal Wheat.</p>
<p>eta-oh, and about the sun, it was the most amazing reddish and purplish sunset during my run!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Go Erika!</p>
