<b>Your</b> body is starting to object? Mikey, you're a running machine.<br><br>
Mine started objecting a few months ago.<br><br>
First run of the day was 6.25 recovery with 6x100 m strides. I'll run another 4 or so later and report back. 9:30 average. Wind. Hills.

This morning was a 4-mile recovery run in 64?F temperature with 84% humidity and a pretty stiff wind out of the south. I am hoping that the weather is a bit more accomodating in my marathon in three weeks. Tomorrow morning is my last big run before the taper. I hope I survive.

5 mile slug on the TM. Totally did not want to do anything. My body thinks taper= complete hibernation, but i am trying to combat that.<br><br>
Flounder- i am surprised your body has not spoken up sooner. You run insane mileage.

My friends know not to challenge me to any competition that involves little skill - Just an abundance of pigheadiness <img alt="snorting.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/snorting.gif"><br><br>
My personality and body was made for Ultras, but I continue to resist their black hole like gravitational pull - some day I will cross over to the dark side with Meri. <img alt="surprised.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/surprised.gif">ccasion5:

Today I took a little back from what "The Man" has taken from me in the past (Lunches) and did 8 miles outside in a littel under 1:01<br><br>
47F sunny Winds 10 MPH - Very nice day in WI<br><br>
I realized after this morning that I needed to eat more - I ate 1800 calories between the morning run and 9:00 am - I flet like a champ during my lunch run.<br><br>
Good running to all -

I only run no more than 70mpw at peak! I still think you are crazy. My body could never handle that mileage. I also would have to quit my job to find the time for all those miles, lol <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Yes, dg1, I have run into the headwind the entire way on an out and back run <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

Again my run pales in comparison to the rest of you! <img alt="" src="http://bestsmileys.com/bowing/2.gif" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
6 miles on the TM. It was pouring this morning. I haven't run on the TM in a few weeks, so my run felt like it took forever! And I was moving along at a pretty good clip too. Anyway, followed up with some stretching and ab work.

10 minutes on the elliptical and 30 minutes of weight training for me today. Dreading tomorrow's run of a whole 2 miles running straight.

Taught pilates and yoga classes this morning, that felt good.<br><br>
This afternoon I swam 1000 m, mostly freestyle and some kick.<br><br>
Swimming makes me ravenous in a way running never does! Not even long runs. It's so weird.<br><br>
meri, I felt like that during taper too.<br><br>
Everyone, run a mile or two for me, k?

I am curious on how she'll report the score. Some of the run on Sat, the rest on Sun. Howevah she wants to report it, it will be my honor to post the total on the leader board!

Last year I had some success averaging 120 per week for the training cycle of fall marathon. I would probably make faster progress @ 90-100 MPW, but I am an addict.<br><br>
My big bonus - I get 1 hour lunch and can run 5-6 miles + I chose to live 3 miles from work (No Commute)

that makes more sense. I cannot run after or during work. Very limited on time <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">
