I taught spinning this morning, and will take pilates class this afternoon.<br><br>
I guess this really isn't a run report, is it?

But it is definitely a worthy report nonetheless. I blab here all the time and hardly have any running to mention. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
Legs feel pretty good...I am definitely pumped for tonight and have my sights set high. Shooting for a PR and my first ever trip to state. WOOHOO!<br><br>
Have a great day.<br><br>
Alex

I am exhausted. I ran 10 "easy" miles with 8 strides at the end, but there was nothing easy about this workout. I was tired, it was hot and it was windy. I just didn't have the usual spring in my step and it made for a challenging run.<br><br>
I hope that yours are better.<br><br>
One nice note: I did hit 1000 miles for the year during this run.

good luck alex!!<br><br>
i did a measly 30 minutes on the elliptical and a bunch of stretching/rolling afterwards.<br>
I am getting excited for this weekend's race, except the forecast is calling for 88F <img alt="surprised.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/surprised.gif"> no shade on this course either. It will be good conditioning for Badwater <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Good luck, Alex! I'm sick. So far it's just a sore throat and mild headache. Not sure if I'm going to run today.

I'll be running later in the 88F heat (I'll think about meri when I do) but I'm only going 2 miles and then I get to stop. I hope it's not as hot for you as they predict!<br><br>
Good luck, Alex!!!

Well, I managed a 5K tonight on the dreadmill in 25:36. Given the race earlier in the week, I was well pleased with the run.<br><br>

I didn't get this fat lazy ass out of bed until 5:30 - Could do my workout, I was going to just do another easy run, but my DD#2 woke up just as I was about to leave - I could leave.<br><br>
I ran 6 easy @ Lunch - I am trying to sneak out of hear by 4:00 to get a good run in before 6:30 church service (End of school year service)<br><br><br>
Again - Alex - What ever happens - we are proud of you.

Go Alex! YAY! We're cheering you on!<br><br>
After a relatively painless day yesterday (I had a bad case of tendonitis in the back of my left knee since the race), I decided to take a spin and see how they felt this morning. A relatively painless 2.75 in 30 and change, which brought me to a PB of 10:56 average mile.

Sunny 88F at 6:30p<br><br>
Cycled 5mi to the trailhead, Ran 6 miles easy, and rode the 5mi home. The woods were a bit cooler, being in the shade. Picked up some groceries on the way home and ready to make dinner.

6.4 hilly miles in 1:02. Pace was more than easy but less than threshold. Legs started to go towards the end, and the "back" split was a minute slower than the "out."<br><br>
Tomorrow is 6 miles with 4 at threshold.

Snuck out of work a little early - to the YMCA and time to crank - short on time before church<br><br>
2 miles warmup @ 8.0 MPH<br>
1 mile @ T - 10.0 mph<br>
11 miles @ MP - 9.5 mph<br>
1.1 mile @ T - 10.0 mph<br>
.4 cool down - 8.0 mph<br><br>
Total 15.5 miles - strong workout - not dead, but very tired after.<br><br>
2.1 @ T + 11 MP = 13.1 in 1:21:54 - I am happy with that.<br><br>
After about the 5th MP mile - I wanted to wuss out, but I thought of how hard Alex would be working - He is not posted in TH - I will look in FR
