5 more days...the excitement is building. I'm actually excited to start training again, so I think the 2 weeks of rest has definitely done its job.<br><br>
Have a great day.

Alex, glad to hear that you are itching to get back out there. I'm ramping up my miles so that I can begin a fairly aggressive training cycle targeting both a 5K in March and the Boston Marathon in April. This morning I ran 8 miles around the nearby park. The weather was accomodating (42°F), making this my favorite time of the year to run.

I will attempt to restart training (Cross with a few runs) after doing nothing but walking last week at Disney - I also have to restart weight loss - The mouse made me gain weight. In the spirit of a restart I made my goals / race schedule for 2008<br><br>
Alex - Hopefully we can do 2 or 3 of these together<br>
Bock (5M)<br>
Bellin (10k)<br>
H&S (5M)<br>
Runski (10k)<br><br>
Marathons (May be last year of these)<br>
Boston - I would like to meet Roots (and Others)<br>
Chicago - I'd like to meet Nirvana (and Others)<br><br>
Ultras - Ice Age 50 Miler<br><br>
Next year's real focus will be on running a fast fall 5k.<br><br>
I am restarting @ 236# (10/29/07) after 8 weeks off - So there is a lot of cross training and slow running in my near future.<br><br>
I may not post daily - but I will at least post weekly.<br><br>
Good running to all -

Hey, there's some other people in Boston you should meet, just sayin'... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
A slower tempo run today (but faster than normal training pace). 4.1 miles 33:13 (8:07).<br><br>
Then I went into the gym and did some upper body weights & crunches. My arms are shaky still. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

My coach is a lucky dog Mikey. For a vacation him and his wife, other coach, are heading to New York for 3 days and watching the Men's Trials. Plus their hotel is like a block away from central park so they get to run there too.

5.67 with a nasty fall downhill on ice. Put me on the cheese grater that did. I've got road rash up my right leg. Should be fun running tomorrow.<br><br>
But, I did manage some fast miles after that (the last 2.67 actually.)

I taught yoga today -- it felt great.<br><br>
For cardio it was cross-training. I am sure the class I went to was among the hundreds of spinning classes that incorporated Michael Jackson's "Thriller" into a pre-Halloween ride.

Plan tonight was to run my home 15.2 mile loop.<br><br>
When I got out there, my legs were feeling pretty frisky, so I decided that I would push the pace just a little bit during miles 4, 5 and 6.<br><br>
I came home a bit tired, but I came home feeling accomplished. This was my longest run since Bay State.<br><br>
Beautiful night for a run.<br><br>
