<p>Good Morning!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Decided to make it Tempo Tuesday.  It felt hard and my breathing was loud - I wonder if I woke anyone running by their house this morning <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/lol.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>.5m wu, 5 mile in 37:22, .5 cd.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Enjoy your day!</p>

<p>I thought only I sounded like that Pink.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>6 easy miles which were harder than they should have been due to the humidity.  My 6x1Km tempo repeats tomorrow ought to be a real wet, sweat fest.  Can't wait!</p>

<p>I was sleeping pretty well until some lady in pink ran by my house and woke me up with her loud breathing so I got up and ran 3 miles. (For Breeger:  65 deg, 48% humidity).  I have a kayak lesson on the lake after work tonight.  Pretty excited about that.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>That's a great oldie, TW. DH and I have been watching some old <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdCrZfTkG1c&feature=related" target="_blank">Freddy Mercury/Queen</a> concert footage lately and loving it. The teeth...the white hotpants... I miss Freddy...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I've enjoyed hearing about the relay fun.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Enjoy your day, everyone. </p>

<p>It's pretty hot & humid here too.  I had PT this morning and now my hips are achey, achey, achey.  Time for some vitamin i.  I didn't have time to ice the hips after the session and I'm paying for that now! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Did anyone catch the NYT article about infections caused by gym apparatus?  <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/03/health/03brod.html?_r=1" target="_blank">http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/03/health/03brod.html?_r=1</a></p>
<p>Pretty sobering.  Be sure to wash your hands, mats, and other equipment!  DH snickers when I spend a lot of time wiping down the spin bikes but now I feel vindicated.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Enjoy your day everyone and run a few miles for me.  I'm on tap to hit the treadmill tomorrow morning (would do outside but it's supposed to be extremely hot & humid).</p>

<p>We are starting to see Autumn temperatures. I needed a Gillet and boot covers on the bike this morning.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Run at lunchtime was nice at around 7mm for 6.5 miles and no drama</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I also signed up for VRAA</p>
<p> </p>

<p>No such coolness here... it's the Great Sweaty North...... 29°C (that's 84.2°F for the Celcius-challenged) and 70% humidity.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>That's going to make the tempo run after work very interesting.  Somehow I don't think I'll be as fast as Pink!<img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Susan, that's a good reminder!</p>

<p>Run #1 is finally done. 3.1 miles in the park, started out nice and easy for the first mile (10:20 pace) and upped it by half a minute for the remainder. Since I always run by feel, it's interesting to notice what paces my body tends to settle at when I'm not trying for anything in particular (and when I'm not injured!).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Run #2 will be with the masters group this evening. As long as we don't do sprints, I should be fine. :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Enjoy your day, folks.</p>

No, 30% is considered very high in AZ.  They're usually in the teens.  And I would agree that high Humidity is the worst to run in.  However ....</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Running in 100+ dry heat in the AZ desert climate is like running in an Oven or a blast furnace.  Open the door on a hot oven sometime, put your face down close, and imagine how that feels all day long.  Tough stuff.  And a Tough Dude that McSolar.</p>

<p>lol, i'm a marshmallow.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>it's more like a clothes dryer.  in june/october my jeans dry completely outside in 5 minutes in the sun, but they take more than 30 min in the dryer.  it's like living inside a very good clothes dryer.  (today's exceptionally dry... thus the chilly joke...)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>but july - sept we get monsoons... we had some 80f/80% days last week... and that was definitely a different kind of breger-esque fun <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/blush.gif" style="width:18px;height:18px;" title=""></p>

<p>Me too choovie....there I was in deep sleep and dreaming about relay runners wearing mittens or was that schmatta dresses and compression socks and then this steam engine sound! Oh hey Pink. Somehow I am thinking you ran by on light feet with nary a huff or puff! Nice tempo.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also love your tagline on your posting choovie---that's one of our favorite Dr. Who episodes. Every day at 5 pm on BBC America---reruns of the season with Dr. 10 (swoon)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ran 9.7 miles this morning at 8:00 am and at 7:58 pace----felt peppy and the goal was to hold pace at near 8:00. Left the house with my kid who was off on a 4 miler. As I turned onto my route he yells: "Have a good run Shorty McShort-Short---Mayor of Shortville". Time to pull out the "I am now potty trained" videos as evidence of a time when he was the resident Shorty! </p>

when this map turns entirely red, then you should worry.  until then, don't believe the hype from some of my more dramatic colleagues...</p>

<p>9 miles with 45 minutes at a faster pace today. I found a new hilly route to satisfy my need for running hills for Marathon and also put in some tempo miles.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Loving the stories told and dreaming about the stories that are not being told at the relay!</p>
<p>Great job captain Econo!!!</p>
