<p>Trying to get back into a regular workout schedule so I met Dave and Chris at the club this morning for 7.2 mi in about 55 min.  Temp was about 36 when we started.  I need to dig out the fall winter running clothes and my headlamp, armband light and reflective vest.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a great day everyone!</p>

<p>2 miles in the chilly Alabama morning.</p>
<p>First long sleeves of the season.  Still ok to run in shorts.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I know y'all northerners wear shorts longer than we do, but....well, we have the humidity in the summer!</p>

<p>Good morning, TEAM LIT!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Me...</p>

<p>5.65 mile typical Tuesday run early this morning with Andyman and the Diesel. Body feels great considering Sunday's race, probably better than after any marathon I have raced.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Great day, Peeps!</p>

<p>Good afternoon friends.  No workout for me today -- I had physical therapy for my wonky hips this morning, and later today I go back to the podiatrist for the weird numbness in some of the toes on my right foot.  He had put a triangular pad on my orthotics, but that hasn't seemed to make any difference so I figured I'd better go back at this point and see what the next steps are.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>On Sunday I tried Aleve for my wonky hips/back and OMG it really helped!  I usually take ibuprofen for the (increasingly many) aches & pains but I was so pleasantly surprised at how well the aleve worked.  Getting old really sux but thank goodness for drugs.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Windy & rainy here today again, and it's supposed to continue through Thursday but be lovely all weekend.  I'm hoping to hit the 3 mile dirt road near my house a few times over the weekend.  It's an actual road but with very few cars and it's surrounded on both sides by reservoirs for most of the length, which is just so pretty.  It's nice and shady with lots of walkers, runners, and fishermen with only an occasional car passing by.  It's my absolute favorite place to run.  I also sometimes run around my condo complex, which is 4 miles if you do every little alcove and parking area, but it's extremely hilly and you have to watch out for kids on bikes, dogs, and lots and lots of cars.  And I don't mind the treadmill at my gym although it's frequently way too hot in there for comfort.  At least they have TVs attached so you can just zone out as the miles go by.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Where do you all go to do your runs?  Where's your favorite place?  I always like seeing the "favorite run" picture in Runners World each month.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Enjoy your day, everyone.</p>
<p>Susan</p>

<p>Beth-been there!  Pretend you have a new coach - Eli!  He gets to give you your workouts, distance, speed; he even dictates activity. <img alt="wink.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//wink.gif"></p>

<p>A zippy little run at lunch.  Pleasantly surprised by the responsiveness in my legs.  Took it out easy and noticed my easy was faster than it used to be!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>~3 mi (2 on the track in 19:00), total time 29:06.</p>

<p>5 mile run at lunch - first three fast (6:55 pace - though started at about 6:40 for first mile and got progressively slower); took a recovery 1+ miles, and picked it up for the last 1- mile; ended up with a 7:18 pace. Probably should have worn tights - as legs started to tighten up a bit. Fastest run of year ...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My typical run is a direct loop from work around the less scenic parts of Portsmouth, NH. For a treat, I'll drive out to run the 1B loop (about 6 miles) around Newcastle with views of the grand Wentworth hotel, ritzy marina, swanky country club, old (1700s) houses, and old Naval Prison and Naval Shipyard at the mouth of the Piscataqua River. Plenty of nice loops to run from home -</p>

<p>Great stuff for everyone today.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I wish I could say that same about myself.  I have a job and I should be happy for that, especially when I hear about so many people just having problems finding one.  With that said, I am absolutely miserable, I despise going into work every day.  I have a new manager that is a micro-manager and super demanding.  I also I found out today that a job I had interviewed for (within my current company), one that I thought I had a very good chance of getting, well....I didn't get it.  I was told that I interviewed extremely well, they just went with someone with a bit more experience.  Arrrrgggghhhhhh!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>AM:</strong>  3,500m in the pool....I was absolutely horrible.  Probably one of the worst swim sessions in a long time.  I will attribute it to the following:  lack of sleep, exhaustion, and stress.  At least I stuck it out and finished it despite my wanting to stop and get out of the pool on multiple occassions.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>PM: </strong> 4 mile run....I was supposed to go for an hour but I am having a horrible day and the friend I was running with was only going four miles.  The talk with him about my crappy day was more important that an additional 3.5 miles or so.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a good day everyone!<span style="display:none;"> </span></p>

<p>Miles- I sooooooooo feel your pain with your job.  Hang in there.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Had a good workout last night although the legs never really warmed up. </p>
<p>Today I have a 30 min. tempo session. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I just found out that the new running store down the hill from me is offering a women's social run on Wednesday evenings... run some, drink wine some get free stuff.  Are junk miles really <em>that</em> bad???</p>

<p>Ran 5.8 miles today.  It was nice, not much else to add. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>@riley, on this run, I have the best view of the Chicago skyline there is.  It was clear and blue out, but no camera to take a picture.  That lakefront path is one of my local favorites, all time favorite is Kettle Moraine, southern wi, where this is 100s (seems like 100s) of miles of beautiful narly trail</p>
<p>@miles don't let it get to your training.  Need to block that s**t out and deal with so close to your IM.  Look for new job after race.</p>

<p>Miles, so sorry to hear about your crappy job.  I've been very stressed in mine over the past 3 years and I long for the time when I can afford to just work part time.  But my wonderful DH was out of work for 2+ years (just finally started a new job last week) so we were in terrible financial situation for a long while.  We're going to pull out of that hole but it will take a little time, and in the meantime I'm just glad that I have a decent job even if it's horrible lately.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Just got back from the podiatrist and he gave me a cortisone shot at the base of 3 toes.  Said the numbness & burning I feel is called Morton's neuroma.  It's not that terrible - I can still workout - but it does feel strange and a little painful, almost as if you're a little off balance due to numb toes.  While I was at the doc's, I saw a sign that another dept was giving flu shots so I hustled my bony butt down there and now I'm protected from the flu for another year.  Good timing!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm lovin' hearing where all of you run & ride.  Reg, is Portsmouth near Concord?  I have family there and have run through the city a few times during a hurricane while attending a wedding about 2 years ago.  I also almost got hit by a cab while running in Chicago, but that lakeside view was just perfect.  I fell off a curb and totally screwed up my ankle running in DC once, and got caught in a freak snowstorm in Denver once.  It's fun to run in new cities.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Rain, rain, go away.  We've had enough here in NY for this week.</p>

New Hampshire is a pretty small state <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif"> Concord's probably a little over an hour to Portsmouth by car. It's easy enough to explore the NH seacoast (since it's the smallest in the union - less than 20 miles). Lots of history and very picturesque though: <a href="http://www.seacoastnh.com/SNH.com/About_SeacoastNH.com/About_SeacoastNH.com/" target="_blank">http://www.seacoastnh.com/SNH.com/About_SeacoastNH.com/About_SeacoastNH.com/</a><span style="display:none;"> </span></p>

<p>I'm in the same boat as you, Cak73...couch, tissues, dayquil, cough drops...hack, cough, hack. Can't seem to shake whatever this is. I had a decent weekend - 7m run Saturday at a nice pace, 20-miler Sunday that went very well. Scheduled DOR yesterday, which was good because I woke up feeling awful, and today...worse. Blah.</p>
