Time to get another week going. More weight in the backpack for the chin ups and push ups.<br><br>
Run after work today.<br><br>
I've definitely been putting on some weight, but I think it's good weight. I'm about 6 to 8 pounds heavier than I was back in late October and early November. I was around 138 - 140 lbs back then and now I'm coming in at 145 - 147 lbs most mornings. I guess that's not so good for the running, but it's a good sign that my small intestine is getting in better shape now that gluten has been eliminated from my diet.

You do some pretty impressive workouts, <b>Scratch</b>. I wish I did 1/4 the amount of sit-ups and chin-ups, etc, that you do...<br><br>
I had a nice run yesterday. 9.4 miles at a 8:20 pace, plus miles 8 and 9 were my two fastest. I'll take that. Today will be some lifting at the Y, plus a couple easy miles on the TM. No biggie...<br><br>
Have a great day, guys and gals...

You can outrun me by a lot, <b>Bob</b>. I think the big thing I've learned over the last year is that if you keep working at stuff, just slowly adding to it, after a while it accumulates together. Then you get to run 20 miles like you can do, or try to do crazy numbers of push/pull/chin ups like I've been working on.

Run today after work. Weather guy says showers late.... I might try to do my 3 today instead of 2. I need to run TWR this week and take F off b/c of my dad's surgery, so that might not be as good as 2.3.2... and I think maybe this is the first weekend of running with CRC so I don't even know what I'm running Saturday...hopefully 4 or 5....

I think the knee discomfort I had a week or so ago was IT band stuff now that I look at it. I was ramping up miles and running hilly, hilly trails all the sudden with some particularly long and steep downhills... Ima try to watch that a little bit and see if I can stretch it and ice it from jump even though it isn't bothering me much now so that it doesn't spin out of control like PF did earlier.

Yeah, be careful with the downhills, <b>Roo</b>. Gentle downhills can be good, but steep downhills can put lots of stress on the quads, knees, ankles, the whole leg because of gravity and increased acceleration. Force equals mass * acceleration.

Hi everyone! What'd I miss? I've been offline for so long. But there wasn't much running to report anyway. Just a couple of easy ones here and there since Philly. So now I'm trying to get back into it. I joined a marathon training group. It'll have me ready for a spring marathon. Any ideas? There's one here in may but I'd kinda like to do a new one. Ottawa is in may, too, I believe. <b>Winter</b> you doing that one?<br><br>
Last night was our first run and I chose to go with the intermediate group instead of the beginners. I figured I was ready for that, even with the layoff. But they were quite fast and I found it tough to keep up. Tougher than usual. We did 6 miles with some steep hill repeats. I realized when I got home that I hadn't eaten or drank enough water all day. And I paid for it. Felt awful all night...nausea, chills, headache. And I actually threw up. Freaky. We go out again tomorrow so I have to be better prepared this time.

Mornin all.<br><br>
I'm planning on a 6M tempo today at lunch. My legs were a bit dead yesterday so we'll see how well that goes. The roads are still pretty narrow and any sidewalks are unplowed. I hate frost heaves.<br><br><b>Scratch</b> - I agree w/<b>boB</b> - impressive totals. I wish I could fit that kind of workin' out into my daily routine. I don't think I'd need the backpack w/additional weight though. '2-bills' is plenty enough to try and pull/push up.

Heading to the gym in a bit for some TM action, and perhaps a little extra for my VRAA team.<br><br>
Good to see you back <b>Colleen</b>!

Careful with the IT band issues, <b>Mandy</b>. Get yourself a foam roller if you don't have one already.<br><br>
Are those lbs muscle, <b>Scratch</b>?!? Very impressive.<br><br>
Another day, another 8M. Must...get...going....

<b>Kris</b>, you gotta stop doing those 8 milers, look a bit too much like BM. <img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif"><br><br>
I'm guessing the new weight on me is mostly muscle, although it might be some more fat, too. The whole thing with my small intestine probably healing up and microvilli regrowing is starting to show up in these ways that my body is making much more efficient use of the food I'm eating.

Hey all:<br><br>
Easy 9+ last night just under 8:20 pace. Felt good. We are in a little warm wave here - 50s last night. It felt odd to be out in shorts & a tee.<br><br>
Tonight, probably 6ish. I'm trying to get more peaks and valleys into my week to start to get into the groove for workouts.<br><br>
That's it really.<br><br>
Have fun today.
