Mornin',<br><br>
Dave- Hope the swimming goes well, with all this swim talk, I can't wait to get in the pool on Thursday.<br><br>
I have classes back to back 8-1215 today and then I'll be getting some lunch with a few friends. Then I'll head back here and head out for about 4 miles or so once my food settles....and then possibly a nap since 2 of my roommates had a lot of people over until 3 am last night and kept me up even though I asked them to quiet down like ever hours from 1am until 3 when they left.

Thanks Dave... <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Megs, sorry about the 'mates. Sucks to be the studious one sometimes, huh? I had that problem in college.<br><br>
Richard, enjoy that 2 hour run tonight. I'm ENVIOUS!!! I love long(er) runs.<br><br>
Not sure here today, folks. Either speedwork at lunch or 12 miles after work--and no, not both. Whichever one I don't do today will be done tomorrow.<br><br>
Great day to all!<br><br>
P.S. Wondering about you guys up in Boston/N.H. area...Baba, Ellen...you guys doing ok?

Hey Early birds.<br><br>
Dave - have a great swim<br><br>
Megs- Sorry about the roommates. Have a good run AND nap<br><br>
Richard - Hope your run goes well later.<br><br>
Heading out for 5 miles then a "run" to the ferry. We're down one boat so it's necessary to get to the dock looooooooooong before a departure time to get going on time.<br><br>
See ya later.

Recovery run after school today, most likely on the TM. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> Mostly because I don't feel like waking my brother up to dig out what I'd need to wear. Oh well I guess getting it done is all that matters.

After one unscheduled rest day (overslept by 4 hours!) and one scheduled rest day (platelets donation), I started back running with a 3.5 mile run this morning. Getting colder again at 34F degrees with nice clear skies.<br><br>
Hope everyone else has great workouts,<br>
John

Nice swimming this morning Dave and yu can spel it however yu wunt.<br><br>
That sucks about the roomates Megs- don't they know you need your sleep for training?<br><br>
Enjoy running by time Richard, I always found that a little more low key for me.<br><br>
You know Tonya- if you do your speedwork fast enough, you could get 12 in at lunch...<br><br>
ENjoy the run later dan.<br><br>
Alex, have a good recovery. I wouldn't mind having the option to do a few of my runs on the dreaded mill...<br><br>
Take it easy out there WO. I know I never had any issues with giving blood (i used to do it on my way to lift weights and run...), but I've heard that donating platelets is a little more substantial.<br><br><br>
For me, took it really easy on the 10 last night, not really intentionally, just kind of cruising along. I tried the core program they had in the February Runner's World. A little strange, and not all that challenging overall, so I had to suppliment it with my own abs routine. Planning on 10 tonight and just realized I need to do a Hadd test like last week, so I'll probably incorporate that. I doubt I'll see any improvement at all in my upper heart rate ranges since December was so crappy for me, but we'll see.

Hello, everybody:<br>
About 8 inches of snow fell in my area yesterday -- not quite as much as was forecast, but enough to turn yesterday into a "cross training" effort; plowing and shoveling.<br>
Today i got four miles in. Fell on my icy a$$ just before embarking but fortunately that was the worst part of the run.<br>
Good runs, all

Looks like a good morning of running and plans of running later. I am on the run later today program. I have myself scheduled to do 3 miles and it could be a tempo run or just a nice 3 miles. Have a great morning everyone.

One of these days I bet we'll see something like "26.2 at MP for a total of 2:55:00 over lunch today." <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Morning gang, looks like most of us have plans...<br><br>
Dave: Drill? Are you training for a carpentry race or something? <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br>
Megs: Ah the joys of college life. I miss it... for two or three seconds a year.<br>
Richard: Have fun tonight.<br>
Tonya: Flexibility is the key!<br>
Dan: Ferry? There's a story there...<br>
Alex: "Git 'er done!"<br>
Outlaw: Some times the body tells you what it needs. Hope your first run after some rest was a good one.<br>
MBH: Good luck on your run.<br>
Baba: I can't quite get a pun around the 8 inch ice wasteland... so I won't try. Brave of you to continue after the fall.<br>
Mr. Fuller: Let your feet decide the program.<br><br><br>
I was going to do doubles today, with the evening segment being leading the running clinic in some hill workouts, but I wussed out. Winds with gusts up to 60 mph. kept me snug in bed this am. Will report back this eve.

Yes! And right now I am having trouble with the 1/64 bit. Its like I wont to be drilling a 1 1/4 hole but have the wrong bit. I am hoping by next week I can move up to a 1/32 bit. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Keep the puns coming Grizzly. It would have been tough to pull together that one for Baba's post, but I like where you were headed...

*sigh* I DNF'd at mile 2 of the half marathon. Dratted IT Band. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> I've been limping around ever since. Anyway, I did the race to pace a friend. She managed to finish within 2 minutes of her goal time and with a negative split. This was her first race ever, too.<br><br>
I'm getting better, I just need to rest. I'm taking the opportunity to watch what I eat very closely.<br><br>
*sigh*
