Hopefully we don't have <i>quite</i> so interesting adventures tonight. Keep up the good work peeps!<br><br>
Well the walk is going on today at the end of the day, so hopefully after like an hour+ of running I still have energy for the meet tonight. Running 1600/3200 but if I feel real good I may scratch out of the 1600 and try to race the 3200 since one of the runners faster than me in Regionals is there.<br><br>
Have a great day!<br><br>

I am in total mental anguish - Like I am always in during taper - I just want to run ... run the the wind ... and keep running ... until I can run no more.<br><br>
Instead I ran a lousy 6 miles with 3x.75 mile @ T-pace<br><br>

Poor Flounder only got to run 6 miles. For a lot of runners, that is considered a "long run." I ran 8 easy miles this morning around a nearby park. The weather was nice and I enjoyed the workout while listening to Tales from Topographic Oceans on my MP3 player.

I am going through withdrawl big time - I just want to run a 20+ miler ... Almost worse than giving up cigarettes ... must ... resist.<br><br>
Sunday I figure I will run 28 in the morning and 5 or 6 in the afternoon - That should make me feel better.

A measly 5.3 mile recovery jog, but it was 5.3 more than I planned. Was trying to shake off the strange soreness from last night's Bikram Yoga session, which basically confirmed my belief that a man can live a rich, full life without doing Bikram Yoga.

Usually 10 minutes, but this is a marathon I am pacing, So I plan on getting a tad more before - Its not an all out effort, so the glycogen should hold out just fine.

An easy 3.27 miles in 37:47. A first time outdoors in awhile. I ended up walking a rather large, rather long hill.<br><br>
Today is mr jebba's birthday, so I don't think I'll be doing any more workouts today.

5 easy at lunch - Man it was great out there - sunny and @ 63F<br><br>
Lofcaudio - 3:10 pace team for Green Bay - The pacers are organized by my local running club out of Appleton (30 miles south of Green Bay)<br><br>
1st time pacing - so I received some advice from PacerChris and I am taking the responsibility very seriously. I know I have at least 1 person - I hope for 6-10, but I'll find out Sunday morning.<br><br>
7:15 pace is a little ackward for me as its a bit of a tweener - so I've been practicing a lot so I can get the 1st mile between 7:15-7:30 - I do not want to fry anyones legs.<br><br>
It looks like nice temps - but a bit windy - but I can block a lot of wind for the group @ 6'2 and 205#.

Yikes. I totally understand. My marathon pace is 7:25 and my usual easy pace is 8:15-8:40. But anything between 7:25-8:15 feels like NO MAN'S LAND and is difficult to find any sort of pacing rhythm in there. I'll be interested to hear how it goes for you.<br><br>
If you do well at pacing for a 3:10, perhaps you can pace me to a PR in Boston next year.

About an hour of stationary bike with intervals, then 30 min. of pilates at home.<br><br>
Flounder, good luck with pacing!

2.75 miles in 30 minutes. Really surprised how I added an entire quarter mile to my distance. I'm just starting the One Hour Runner program (in week 2 now).

Well that walk absolutely pooped me but I raised like $70 I think. I ended up running for 1:06:10...15 laps and at 0.64 miles a lap, that's 9.6 miles...at a 6:53 pace. I started a bit fast but from the start to the end, my pace per lap went down about 20 seconds.<br>
Well I knew I wasn't going to have the super meet I was hoping for, I was just fatigued. Went out way too fast the first lap, and then relaxed too much on the second. 1:16, 1:24, 1:23, 1:22 (5:26), 1:21, 1:22, 1:22, 1:18 (5:24). The opponent absolutely crushed me, by about 200m I'd say...I really hope he sticks with his plan of not running the 3200m at Regionals though. I also really hope that with a fresh set of legs on Monday that I'll be down in the 10:30s again. Oh ya...total time 10:50 for 2nd place...I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm disappointed with my time, even though I am almost certain it was from the hard miles earlier that day that slowed me down. I wouldn't say I'm depressed, but it definitely dampered my view of Regionals I have going on in my head, even though I know I shouldn't let it...I just want to not feel so tired.<br><br>

Alex, I'm sure if you don't run 9.6 miles at a 6:53 pace on the same day as Regionals you'll do very well indeed. You've been making great progess and will continue to do so, I am sure.

Nice progress, Amyethyst! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
I did 1 hour on trails. Beautiful evening.<br><br>
I had one spectacular tumble, and I do mean tumble. I caught my foot on a root (hard to see in the dappled sunlight on the trail), and managed to tuck my shoulder and do a lovely controlled roll. I never could manage to do that way back in gym class! Wish I could have seen it from the outside. Only problem was that I busted open the scab on my knee again!
