Spinning class early this morning, so far.<br><br>
On deck: teaching two yoga classes, taking pilates class, easy 5 mile run.<br><br>
My legs are still somewhat sore from Monday. Clearly my muscles found out what they've been missing -- 400 repeats.

SGH: You're an inspiration!<br><br>
4.5 hilly miles. Speed is slowly improving but I'm not about to push it too much yet. No repeats for me for a bit.

a night race eh? what's the distance? I ran an evening race once upon a time, in Seattle. The Torchlight Parade race as part of the Seafair event. I think that was July or August - so it was fairly warm, even in Seattle. I much prefer morning races on an almost empty stomach, not to mention cooler temps. But evening races can be fun and special too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> Have fun!<br><br>
oh, no run for me today. I did 5.5 miles last night at the gym, 3.25 Tuesday, and will do about 3.5 miles tomorrow and then 12-13 on Saturday.

6 miles yesterday evening in 1:04:06, but I stopped to re-tie a shoe in the first mile, so maybe a wee bit faster <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
I haven't checked in one of these threads for a while.<br><br>
Grizzly, sounds like you are doing quite well in your comeback.<br><br>
SGH, you amaze me with all you do.<br><br>
Sparky, someday I want to be able to run as fast as you.<br><br>
Good luck with the race, Alex.<br><br>
Tamster, we can be long run buddies. I'm slated to do a 12 mile run this weekend. I don't have anyone to run it with so I'm <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"> about that. I'm psyching myself up to it, though.

you can do it Ginger! This time I am running with someone, so that'll be nice and hopefully make the 12-13 miles seems quicker. I did 11.2 last Saturday, alone, and it seemed like SUCH.A.LONG.TIME. I won't wear my music when running outdoors and you can only talk to yourself for so long before you wanna tell yourself to shuddup!<br><br>
Make sure you come back and report your long run! I wanna read how you did!

Yeah, it's the boredom factor that gets to me, too. I don't do headphones either. I will most likely go early in the morning (less traffic) and where I live there's not much around for distraction. Except maybe the bears. On my last 10 mile run I counted cars that passed me. There were 25 over the course of that 1 hour 50 minute run. So, yeah, you could say it was dull.<br><br>
I'm already prepping myself thinking of how far out I have to run, and where I turn around and the fact that once I get back to the house I only have to run 3 more miles and they're mostly downhill, etc.<br><br>
I'll report back. I'm glad you have company for your run. It makes the time pass so much faster!

Why don't you meet me in Waitsfield this Sunday for an 8 mile race? It's 99% meadows, wide trails and dirt road (one hill, the rest mostly flat). Very scenic, good food and great free prizes afterwards.<br><br><a href="http://www.madriverpath.com/dash.php" target="_blank">http://www.madriverpath.com/dash.php</a><br><br>
6.2 EZ for me today.

Had a great race tonight...seeing all my buds from running camp this summer really pumped me up and I ran with them. First mile 5:28...probably too fast but I'm in a good spot, like 7th place. About half mile later, the kid who got 2nd to my 3rd last week gets passed by ME. I blow by him and work on reeling in the other teams 5th runner who is in 5th place. I never really gain any more groun on him until the finish. 6th place to a team who perfect scored the meet, but being the D2 powerhouse that they are (made it to State as a team last year and lost no runners, plus tonight they had their top 5 all under 18 minutes), I feel I did quite well. Cool thing is, I still got a medal. Last year I nabbed 5th place for a medal but this year they went to top 10 so I still got some flashy hardware! Final time for me was 18:03, and that's good enough for now...but in a few weeks it'll be a whole different story. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Tamster I'm in high school cross country so our races are 5k and sadly they are always evening or late afternoon, except for Sectionals and State.

Another fab weather day: Sunny 80F at 6:30p<br><br>
13 miles total. First 8 at easy pace with running bud. Next 3 at T-pace (2x 1.5mi ; with 2 min recovery.) Cooled down 2 miles.<br><br>
Tempo was uninspired: ave T= 6:34. Probably b/c warmed up too long? Easy pace between 8:10-8:30.
