<p>Good Morning,</p>
<p>  Just a decent run this morning.  5.21 in 50:44  My heart rate jumped to 160 by 3/4 of a mile but then it dropped back down to 150 or so by 1 mile. I have never had that happen before.  I wasn't pushing hard at the start. </p>

<p>Good morning. Nice run <strong>FB</strong>.</p>
<p>8 miles for me. I'm calling the doctor today and getting bloodwork done. I'm feeling completely flat and off my game. Been like this all summer and I think my nutrient levels are out of wack so I want to get them checked.</p>

<p>Jill, I've been feeling similar this summer.  I've wondered if it was my thyroid, but suspect it's just the heat and humidity.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My long run on Friday felt good, but Saturday my knee hurt quite a bit.  Mr jebba thinks it's tendonitis.  Today will be my first attempt at a run since Friday.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm really thinking of dropping my time goals for my fall races.  I'm just not having fun lately, and I think I need to just run for relaxation for awhile, instead of worrying about the end goal.</p>

<p>Good morning all.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>FB - My HR will jump like that from time to time at the start of a run as well.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Jill - Smart to get it checked out.  I would suspect it could be the heat and humidity as well.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Jebba - Gotta make it fun.  Thats why we do it!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Me - 30 mile group ride this morning.  it was good to slow it down versus trying to go all out.  I was able to most of the pulling this morning which made for a nice ride.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>happy trianing everyone</p>

<p>Good morning all.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nice run FB -- weird about the HR...</p>
<p>Jill sorry you have been feeling flat -- good luck with the dr.</p>
<p>Jebba sorry about the knee -- hope today's run goes well.</p>
<p>Nice ride this morning Dave.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I did another easy 8 miles on the canal path this morning. Legs feeling good.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Jebba I can relate on the goals thing. My only goal for this fall is to pace my brother to a ~4 hour marathon. Feels good not to have any goal races/times and just enjoy running for a change...</p>

<p>FB- Nice job on the run</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Jill- Hope the dr visit goes well</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Jebba- I can def. relate to the fall goals.. I'm looking forward to getting all of these 5ks outta the way, then all I'll have left is a marathon in Dec, and its my first, so automatic PR, no stress</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Dave- Nice going on the group ride</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Loopy- Good going w/ the run, while you were away, I dove into trail running, really into it.  Do most of my saturday long runs on trails now</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Lil speed session on tap for me today.  5x1K.  I'm going at Saturdays race a bit different than normal.  After today I am only doing short easy runs.  I'm willing to try anything to survive races in this heat.</p>

<p>Morning all,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Wonder if it was a false reading, FB, I have been having all sorts of problems with the Garmin HRM.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Jill - hope you get it figured out, and that your mojo comes back soon.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Jebba - Hope your knee feels better, first priority needs to be feeling good.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Dave - no plane jumps this morning :) nice ride.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Loopy - Good to see things are going well.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BBS - good luck with the 1k's</p>
<p> </p>
<p>80 minutes for me on the Elliptical this am with 4 x 7min somewhat hard (replacing a 4 x 1600 track workout).  Did 55 easy yesterday.   Hamstring has been a little better each morning, and getting it worked on by PT tomorrow. </p>

<p>Morning...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Jill and Jebba - take it from a pro.  either thyroid or iron. </p>
<p>FB -  Glad you had a decent run.  Doesn't sound like it was your usual humid experience.</p>
<p>Dave  - Nice ride.  What do you mean by pulling.</p>
<p>Loopy - Good to see you edging your way back.</p>
<p>BBS - Sounds like a plan for your race.  A 5K taper. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Shooting for R14W1.  Last of the walk/run workouts.  If I get through the week ok with this workout it's straight to 30 minutes and onward.   Blood came back much improved.  Still working it's way back up to normal so I have to take it slow adding miles but at least it took a jump.  Baring any unforeseen dips I should be back to "normal" within two months. </p>

<p>Morning all,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm just finishing up breakfast then it's off to work...morning run is in the books. I did my 7.6 mile "city loop" as a progression run based on HR rather than pace - 130s in the first mile (which ended up being 8:47/mile pace), 160s in the last mile (7:30ish pace)...not too bad on this hilly course in steamy humidity.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Speaking of humidity - Jill - that is probably the culprit. I've been struggling with that too. 2010 has been the year for crazy weather extremes! One thing you could try though...take some B-12 supplements.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>FB - my Garmin does that to me sometimes too. I think it has to do with the sensors not being wet yet. It's no big deal, just ignore it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nice job this morning everyone, stay cool if you can.</p>

<p>Meaning that I am leading the group, 1st rider, and everyone is drafting off of me.  The lead rider works harder than everyone else at the same given speed.<br><br>

<p>It was a bit on the cool side this morning.  I think it was in the high 50's.  It was perfect running weather for the morning.  I got in 5 miles in 43:52(8:46).  The last mile was done in 7:25.  My legs were not wanting to move very fast today.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Jill & jebba-  I hope you start to feel better soon.</p>
<p>Dan-  Congrats on the good report from the doctor.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nice job on the running and biking to everyone else that got out already.</p>

<p>Busy morning...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, tempo Tuesday for me.  Finished with a total of 11 miles in mid 70 temps and >90% humidity.  That was a serious sweatarama!   I ran to the gym to meet up with my buddies and then we headed out.  3 miles there + 1 mile group warm up,  5 miles at tempo,  then a 2 mile shuffle home.   I set the pace and paid the price for jogging past the turnaround while waiting for the rest of the group. They turned and left me behind... I then had to hammer it for 2/3 mile to catch up.  My quads are trashed.  Splits came out to 6:48, 6:46, 6:45, 6:35, 6:44.  Seemed a lot harder than those splits suggest but there were a few slow downs for road crossings + the turnaround jog.   7:47mpm average for the entire run.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Hawk</strong> - nice job on the HR run.  I should wear mine for recovery runs.</p>
<p><strong>Dan</strong> - good to see the blood work improving.  Hope the 14/1 goes well.</p>
<p><strong>zrun</strong> - What's up with the ellipticalating?  Hope the PT can work the kinks out of your hammie.</p>
<p><strong>BBS</strong> - enjoy the speedwork (again)</p>
<p><strong>Loopy</strong> - back to the steady 8s I see...</p>
<p><strong>Dave</strong> - nice ride.  You are going to crush that HIM.</p>
<p><strong>Jebba</strong> - good plan.  Hope the knee feels better.</p>
<p><strong>Jill</strong> - hope it's just the H&H.  It's a been a real bear here to.</p>
<p><strong>FB</strong> - Was there a hot girl running in a bikini?</p>
<p><strong>kfuller</strong> - 50s?  Nice run.</p>

<p>If there was, I missed her in the dark.  All I had was a little moonlight and a couple of street lights. <br>
