Hope the soreness fades away as the day wears on buddy.<br><br>
Hoping to add a few miles in warmups and cooldowns tonight at the meet. Supposed to be sunny and 60s so if that holds true and there isn't too much wind it will be a great day for a run.<br><br>
Now is time for all smart grizzly's to rest and load up on water and carbs to be ready for the big battle coming your way. Mke sure you are fresh for the big day!<br><br>
8 easy miles this am - thought of the day was recovery - didn't care how many miles as long as it felt easy.
Grizzly, many people feel more soreness the week leading up to the marathon as the nerves start setting in. So it sounds to me like all systems are a go. Enjoy it.<br><br>
I had a super-easy four miles around the neighborhood. The weather was quite a bit warmer (66°F) this morning and is a reminder for the summer that is coming faster than we would like to admit.
Sheesh, since VRAA started I have been forgeting to post my workouts in here. Oops!<br><br>
I ran 4 miles this morning in 33:13. It was a mild 64 degrees, cool breeze, kind of humid since its supposed to rain. I was sweating my butt off my the time I was done, but it felt good.<br><br>
I'm kind of askeerd of the dark, but I really enjoy running early in the morning - just me and the sound of my footsteps.
An easy 5.25 mile run this morning. Perfect running conditions. 50F and sunny. A bit chilly in spots with the breeze, but not too cold for shorts. I didn't push the pace and was pleased with my time. I should be kicking some butt again soon. <img alt="icon_cheers.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_cheers.gif">
nobody rang my doorbell and left me a may basket...<img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br>
5 miles on the TM while watching FOOTY!!!!<br>
GOOOOOOOOLLLLLLL!<br><img alt="surprised.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/surprised.gif">ccasion5:
mayday! indeed. Thunderstorms all over this evening. I didn't have a lot of oomph by the time I got to my treadmill, so I did a power hiking/running combo on the TM on max incline. It made me breathe hard and sweat like a fiend, so I guess it was doing something.
Somone knocked on my door and gave me a basket. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
I feel like kicking my coach in the head with my spikes on. ARG! Yesterday's escapades in the gymnasium left everyone's legs feeling like complete trash for today's meet and running on our <i>lovely</i> asphalt track just makes it so much better. I felt good for about the first 200 meters of my leg of the 4x800 and it was all downhill from there. My split wa 2:17 with a super positive split. Mile in 5:20 something with no fight in me whatsoever for the guy who passed me and 3200 in 11:36. My legs are sore, I'm cranky, and my parents just don't get it. They think I overrect which I most likely do, but for the thing that I take so seriously in my life, why shouldn't I??? Probably only had about a mile of warmups and cooldowns in between. I really hope by the time thursday rolls around I'm ready for the big invitational.<br><br>
