<p>Don't be lonely, tomwhite....</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Maybe I should post twice, since I ran twice? 3.25 miles this morning on my own, then 4.3 miles with my running partner this afternoon. Tomorrow morning I run with a newbie runner friend of mine who is doing C25K and needs some moral support for her 28 minute run. I'm really looking forward to that. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hope everyone's having a great weekend!</p>

<p>No running miles for me & those bike miles add up a lot quicker.  <strong>Paul</strong>, if you're still around here, do you follow the OSU cross country event? <a href="http://www.runbrooks.com/event/main/show/id/236691-Brooks-Cowboy-Jamboree-2010" target="_blank">http://www.runbrooks.com/event/main/show/id/236691-Brooks-Cowboy-Jamboree-2010</a></p>

<p>Hi OM & TW!</p>
<p>Yay, Opie's here too!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Scary quiet here today!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My day started with attending a funeral for a colleague's 90 yr old father.  It was a touching memorial, half in English and half in Mandarin.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Things went uphill from there, with  a couple of hours of shoe and clothes shopping at the outlet mall on the way home.  Got 3 pair of nice comfortable pumps for work, and two funky jackets that'll go well with the jeans we can wear to work now.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Changed in to running clothes when I got home and hit the nearby mountain bike trails for a gnarly 8.3 miles. Almost rolled that blinkin' ankle again, and the metatarsals hurt a bit by the end, but otherwise it was a lovely run.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Time for a beer!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Enjoy the day, all!</p>

<p>If you mention beer, I usually show up. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I ran a 10K race this morning.  I really did not know what to expect since I have a full-blown cold, and I'm pretty darn tired from being on the road all week for work.  I was really hoping to run under 41 minutes, but I wasn't sure I had 6:37/mi pace in me.  I guess I was wrong.  40:12 for a 6:28/mi average. My mile splits were: 6:24, 6:34, 6:31, 6:26, 6:41 (uphill), 6:14 (downhill), 1:24 for the last 0.2 mile.  Totally surprised the crap out of me.  This was my second fastest 10K ever, just 5 seconds off my PR.  I'm pleased.  Luckily, the race ended right in front of a brewpub, so after Mrs. Labduck finished the 10K walk, we sauntered up to the bar and quaffed a few.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The only downside was my surgically repaired knee really started aching a few minutes after the race.  The pain went away when I did my 1 mile cool down jog, and it does not hurt now. But it's still puzzling.</p>

<p>Jeepers I'd like to do those splits just once, Lab!.  Great racing.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>tw, you got my HR up when I saw the title of today's post. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Played in a Member/Guest tournament today.  And we won!  Ham and egged it all day long.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ribs, I luv that movie!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm really thrilled by OM's posts lately.</p>

It's my last long weekend of running before I start my taper. I wanted 40+ miles for sat/sun, then easy next week. I'll run a final marathon on 10/10.<br><br>
This year Bellingham Bay is a point-to-point. It's starting to get really windy, and if it keeps up we will have quite a headwind tomorrow. They are also predicting heavy rain.<br><br>

<p>Ugly conditions Dove.  If it was me, I'd head over to Boundary Bay Brewing, or even better, Chuckanut Brewery, and hunker down for the day. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>

Nice race, Labduck! Curious about the knee.... I hope it's nothing.<br><br>
My hotel is a little on the questionable side so I'm hunkering down tonight with a securely locked door and a beer or two.<br><br>
Bad weather will be ok (or so i say while sitting in my warm, dry room)It will give me a chance to work on my mental toughness.

<p>Lab, that is some studly running.  Bravo.  I hope the knee forgives you in the morning.</p>
<p>Dove, you're strong and you'll make the best of it, as you always do.  And you just never know what the weather will be like around here.  Good luck!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Like OM, I ran twice today.  Trails first for an hour in the early morn, another half-hour on the dreaded TM to test out some new shoes, with an hour paddle wedged in between.  Spectacular day.  Two out of three with Mustang Sally.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Now to test out my pillow ....</p>

<p>Awesome 10k Lab.  6:28's........wow.  And 6:14 for mile 6?  Even if it <em>was</em> downhill, that's <em>booking</em>!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>8 miles for me Saturday morning at the HS track, after dropping off my 2 youngest sons for their 2-hour bus trip to Utica for a Cross Country Invitational.  I don't think this one finishes at the Matts' Brewery. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I ran my middle 6 miles mostly as a progression through my Easy Running zone - fell off a bit at the end as I'd gone a little too fast on mile 5.  There was a tough wind for about 150 meters of each lap.  8:29 / :27 / :16 / :06 / 7:52 / 7:58. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>The rest of the day was spent pulling roots out of the ground with a pick, then helping to keep over 100 people fed, safe, and entertained at our annual church hayride. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Gee, I'm sore this morning, but why could it be?  <img alt=":rolleyes:" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//rolleyes.gif" title=":rolleyes:"></p>
