<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.

Everyone here running a 100 mile race - Raise their hands ... Anyone ... Anyone oh yes - Meri <img alt="icon_blackeye.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_blackeye.gif"><br><br>
I feel in good company <img alt="icon_flower.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_flower.gif"><br><br>
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">
day four of my no-run rotation week<br><br>
today: weights/total body + core<br><br>
I fizzled out on the last 2 core exercises cuz my hip flexors were fatiqued from yesterday's intense drills.<br><br>
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.
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?
Your attitude and mileage amaze me!! *woo*<br><br>
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)
