Hey Rosie!<br><br>
I was being followed by a moon shadow, moon shadow..<br>
.. and I out ran it!<br><br>
SS.. thanks for the advuce RE tights vs shorts. No injuries and I feel great!<br><br>
As you guys know, I was debating whether to do that final 3x1600 m speed session or do tempo. So I did <b>BOTH</b>.<br>
PBJ Special<span style="font-family:'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-size:medium;">™</span></span>: 8 miles in 1:01:06 (7:39 pace, AHR 160) which included:<br>
3 x 1600m (target 7:00) @ 7:10, 6:57, 7:04 <b>and</b> 2 min jogs between.<br>
Felt great. It was a frosty 32F and I wore gloves, long sleeve tee, <b>tights</b>, and shorts. Also did 5 min elliptical to warm-up before heading out. All easy runs and rests til the marathon!<br><br>
Thanks for the advice on tempo vs intervals!<br><br>

Hi rcg! Nice run there.<br><br>
Nice workout, Steve. I guess that settles it then, both are best. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Here in Utah it's warm and windy. There is probably a storm blowing in, but the TV weather guy has such distracting hair that I can't pay attention to what he's saying.<br><br>
0446<br>
63 F, windy<br>
10 miles w/ 5 @ tempo (goal = 7:20, actual = 7:18, 22, 24, 14, 17)<br><br>
Happy Tuesday, all!

I just had physical therapy this morning. The guy is aggressively treating both my calf rip and my plantar fasciitis. I'm always sore afterwards, but it's really starting to heal so I'm very excited about that! No running for me today or tomorrow, but I plan to do a light walk/jog on Thursday morning.<br><br>
Happy runs to all of you. What are we doing tomorrow, for Halloween?<br><br>

Excellent, Perch & millbot, most excellant.<br>
But I would have had more fun with Rosie and friends<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br>
Susan hang in there with the PT<br>
Driving is playing havoc with my schedule, but I'll do something when we get home from Atlanta.<br>
Have a great day,<br>

Good runs this morning so far!<br><br>
Gorgeous day here in CT!<br><br>
I did 3, post marathon, slow, easy miles. Felt ok, still real thirsty though. I must not have had as much to drink as I thought. I will continue to run easy and light, every other day for a while to recover.<br><br>
Don't forget the Nova "marathon" show on tonight. Should be good. (do we really want to know what we are doing to our bodies?)

Perch, you keener.<br><br>
I'm slow on the uptake. I only just figured out that now that we live in town with city dogs who don't go swimming every day, I perhaps ought to take them for walks. Storm is still too lame for a walk, so I took Hamish, who is so well-trained that he can bounce six feet in the air with excitement (Walkies?! Walkies! Walkies! Walkies!) in perfect heel position with slack in the lead. What a good DoofusBoy. It was a lovely star-and-moon-light morning.<br><br>
Lunchtime, the dreaded Big Hill/Plyo workout. I'm a little achy in one spot, so may drop the hill/plyo part and just do the warmup-cooldown parts instead. Stay tuned.

WTG Perch! Nice workout.<br><br>
Hey millbot, do you think maybe the weatherman has distracting hair so that folks won't be paying attention to how wrong he is most of the time? I like to accuse the weatherdudes in Portland of being pathological liars since they don't appear to be able to tell the truth.<br><br>
Good dog Hamish, good dog.

All weather guessers have to have some distracting quality. We had one here who came and gave his report drunk quite often. The last one we saw him do he was slurring words and was very noticeable drunk. Never saw him again. Nice workout Perch! Looks like everyone's having a good day so far. I got a nice 18.25 mile run in this morning @ 7:47 avg pace. Got bored by the end and was glad it was over with.<br><br>

have a good day

Nice runs rose and perch!<br><br>
No running for me today: my major exercise is going to be aerobic foot-draining. The doggies got a little scuffed up at JJ - maybe worse than that nasty pic I posted.

I <i>implore</i> you, Hippo: No pics of the feets, but, yes, pics of the awesome <i>feat!!!<br><br></i>millbot, labduck, ksrunr, you made me SOL (snork out loud). "Distracting weatherman." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Wow, perch. Excellent! Are you and millbot (nice tempo!) and I about the same speed? More incentive to get back in a hurry. Hopefully I hit the pool for some water running this morning. I'll go to the gym for sure.<br><br>
runin', I meant to say yesterday, I'm sorry to hear about your migraines. Hope you can find something that diminishes them at least.<br><br>
gin, have a few glugs of water. Right now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Rosie, I love your paddling pics. I think we need to paddle together after our run. When?<br><br><b>ETA:</b> ksrnr, UNreal. Great run. (Please don't speak of running boredom around me right now, though. My eye starts flickering uncontrollably.) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
JJJ, I found this <a href="http://www.umich.edu/~exphysio/mvs.240/AdditonalLabs/LabA5_1%20copy.pdf" target="_blank">ankle flexibility test</a> online. I'd be interested to know if there's a difference between your good and bad ankles. I think AFA manual manipulation, on this one you need a "trained professional" (there are a whole lotta bones and stuff in there). She was doing a lot of pulling and pushing of that joint yesterday.<br><br>
Going from poached to sunny side up!

Woo hoo! Party at Susan's house! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
This makes me smile. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> But not too sunny now, psycho killer @ss kicking Easter bunny.<br><br>
{{Storm}}<br>
MS, I know you'll do the smart thing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Labduck, I think there's something to your theory.<br><br>
Congratulations, Hippo! {{Hippo's feet}}<br><br>
Oh, hey there, ksrunr. Oh, 18.25 miles @ 7:47 pace, eh? Hmm. Sheesh. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/notworthy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="notworthy">

Good mornin' everyone! I ran a nice 4.25 miles in moon shadows this morning. (I copied Rose, but a little slower). My Garmin beeped my 4th mile while I was running downhill. I could't stop on a downhill, so I decided to run it <i>real fast</i> and stop at the upcoming intersection about .25 miles away. Do you know, my Garmin said I did that last .25 in 8:00 mpm pace! That's as fast as I think I've run in at least a decade. It was about half downhill, but I'll take it.<br><br>
Susan, that's really good news about your progress in PT. SS, I hope your injury heals quickly. How do you like that water running? (Thanks for your kind words r.e. my %&!! headaches). Millbot and KS, you continue to impress me with your mileage. Perch, you're running well right now, too. (Sorry, I've forgotten, when's your marathon?)<br><br>
KS, that's funny about the drunk weatherman. I get so grumpy about lack of sunshine in the spring that I can't even watch the annoying "duringcasters". The tell us it's raining yet again, and they're smiling. The nerve!<br><br>
On a non-running topic, anyone have trouble getting a tooth to go numb at the dentist? Yesterday the dentist was all ready to start a root canal and could not get my tooth numb. She tried 3 different things...finally sent me home to take massive quantities of IB and amoxicillin for the next three days. We'll try again on Thursday. Naturally, I can't wait.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad10.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sad10"> (But I do admit that the darn tooth feels better today after all that IB than it's felt in a couple months).

Marie, the dentist could not numb my tooth until he gave me an injection on the inside of the gum instead of the outside, if that makes sense. He said that normally the nerves are toward the outside of your gums, but in some mouths they grow closer to the inside. The result: three injections on the outside = no relief, one injection on the inside = comfortably numb.<br><br>
I'm remembering back several years, so I may have the inside/outside thing backwards.

Aerobic foot draining? eewwww! Reminds me of some feet I saw when watching a movie about Badwater the other night.<br><br>
Marie, I haven't had any dental work done for probably 15+ years but I do have trouble getting the numbing stuff to work when having other procedures done like a mole removal. I usually end up with enough stuff injected in me to numb a horse but I still feel the pain. Good luck with the tooth.<br><br>
Pilates and yoga are on my dance card for today but I may have to miss Pilates if a lunch date pans out.

I got in a shorter than anticipated run on the TM last night. I only did 3.75 mile of running. Just could not get motivated for some reason. And now I'm only .4 miles from tying my previous monthly PR for mileage. I am getting in a lunchtime run today and am shooting for at least 4 miles. And tomorrow - no running - doing the halloween thing after work with DS and DH.

I think that tomorrow we need to post Halloween pics of costumes, pumpkins, etc.<br>
No feet pics! Unless they're encased in a costume. Of course I am photo challenged and can't seem to post a picture, but maybe someone will assist -- hint hint.<br><br>
No party at my house tomorrow - I have to do ambulance duty (I'm a volunteer EMT) starting at 6am and then I work from 1-9pm. ugh. DH and the dynamic duo doggies Truffle & Remy will have to distribute the candy. We live in a huge condo complex which has almost 400 families, so we usually go through about 8-10 bags of candy that night. The complex usually hires guards to keep out busses of children. Neighboring communities & group homes used to bus in huge groups of kids (hundreds!) and they weren't well supervised and created all sorts of problems & vandalism.<br><br>

6 easy miles in the woods at a 10:30 pace. It seems to be harder for me to run slow than to run fast (er), so I'm pleased with the fact I was able to force myself to stay at the slower pace this morning.<br><br>
No Halloween here, in the 15 years I've lived where I live, I have never had a trick or treater show up. I'm quite a ways out of town, no street lights, long dirt driveway, nearest houses 300-500 feet away, and only a few of those.<br><br>
Riley - to post a pic, you need an online account. I use photobucket, it's free. Upload your pictures to photobucket or whatever one you end up using. Then you can post pictures here by either cut and pasting the link, or with photobucket, you just click on what option you want to use, either attaching the picture to an email or posting on a bulletin board.<br>
Someone with a better grasp of the english language can explain this better than I.
