<p>Good morning, <strong>BBS</strong>.  Enjoy those intervals. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Me</strong> -- Up very early again.  Both achilles are barking hard.  I think I'll take today off.  First total rest day in months.</p>

<p>Good luck with the 800s BBS.</p>
<p>Rest up Chances.</p>
<p>Nice run in the dark FB.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Another wet, cold morning here -- did 10 miles on the mountain roads. Not quite as cold or wet as Yesterday, so not all that bad. still, looking forward to a dry run for a change (though looks like I may have to wait until Thursday).</p>

<p>I think it was colder here today than Sunday but I didn't feel as cold, maybe I just needed a run to get used to it.   7 miles total, including 5k on the track in 23:25 (7:32 pace) aiming for MP and was consistent, but felt a bit faster than MP.  HRM wasn't picking up at all, I am thinking might need a new battery.   Still felt something going on in the hamstring but not too much.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BBS - treadmill intervals and hunting, there's something you don't see together that often.  Reminds me, they just had the national championship for Big Buck Hunter here in Chicago last weekend.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Chances - rest up those achilles!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>FB - nice getting out in the dark, my warmup on the trail was pretty spooky this morning with how dark it was and seeing my breath.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Loopy - good to see all is right with the world and you are back to 10s <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a good one, folks.</p>

<p>Good morning everyone.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BBS - Have a great workout on the TM.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Chances - Well deserved rest day.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>FB - Great run.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Loopy - Nice 10 miler, hopefully it will dry out for you soon.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Me - 30 mile group bike ride this morning.  It was kind of cold this morning at 47 for the bike ride.  But I was dressed just right, so it worked out great.</p>

<p>Good morning.  Got in 5 miles in 45:17(9:03).  Like chances I have barking body parts today.  I think I will just take it easy for the rest of the day.  Nice job on all the biking, swimming and running.</p>

<p>Ran my 10k route and decided to do 2 miles @ m-pace rather than at the track tomorrow night.  40F and 95% humidity.  What's up with that?  Anyway, my pacing was horrific.  It seems I will be running the marathon at a pace between 6:30mpm and 7:30mpm.  Averaged to 7:10s but it felt a lot harder.  Hopefully I'll do better with 24.2 more.  Not feeling too confident right now...</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>kfuller</strong> & <strong>Chances</strong> - hopefully the barking fades to a whimper today.</p>
<p><strong>4boysmom</strong> - nice fishbowling</p>
<p><strong>Dave</strong> - nice job on the cool ride.</p>
<p><strong>zrun -</strong> sounds like your m-pace run went better than mine.</p>
<p><strong>Loopy</strong> - good job toughing out the crappy conditions of late.</p>
<p><strong>FB</strong> - I recommend running forwards with your eyes open.</p>
<p><strong>BBS</strong> - how about chasing some animals for those intervals?  Get JD to video it for us.</p>

<p>Brrr ... it's cold and rainy here. I do not want to go outside and run. Yuck. Will today be the day that I break my "no treadmill running" streak? We shall see.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>RA</strong>, I always think we need to get that bad run in and out of the way to make room for the great run. You know, just as I, that a bad run is undoubtedly followed by a streak of good days. You'll do just fine.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Great job with those runs and bikes and swims today.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And take care of those barking aches.</p>

<p>Morning all,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It's a little chilly here but at least the rain is gone - for now. It may come back later today. Low 50s temps at the moment. If I had been more on the ball this morning I might have gotten out in the dark & mid-40s but it wasn't meant to be. So I'm packed for a midday run, which hopefully I can squeeze in between meetings and other sundry work tasks. I'm thinking about 7-8 with some tempo in there somewhere -- maybe 2 x 15:00? If it doesn't get done this afternoon, it will have to be this evening.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Only 33 days until NYC, 26 until Marine Corps 10k (final tuneup). So while it's showtime for Chances, RA and Z this Sunday, I'm not far behind on the curve. Oh boy...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BBS - good luck with those 800s...hopefully nobody's watching from a tree stand. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/rolleyes.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Chances - rest those achilles, just a warning sign to not blow it during taper.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>FB - good job switching it up a bit and getting the run in</p>
<p> </p>
<p>loopy - nothing stops you, nice 10er</p>
<p> </p>
<p>zrun - nice run but see comment to chances above, re: hammy. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Dave - 47 on a bike. brrrrr...I rode 30 once last winter when it was 34. I don't think I've ever felt so cold after a workout.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>4bm - nice job in the fisbhowl</p>
<p> </p>
<p>kevin - way to get the 5er in despite the barking inside</p>
<p> </p>
<p>RA - pre-race anxiety most likely. You'll be fine I think.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>That reminds me I need to set up my runner tracking for Sunday. I'll be at a soccer game while the race is going on but when I'm off the field no doubt I'll be checking for updates. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif" title=""></p>

<p> </p>
<p>yuck but it is done. </p>

<p>Hawk - I can normally do pretty well down to about 30 - 35* on the bike before it is no longer fun.  My problem is I just don't have the gear to ride in weather any colder.  today I only had on 2 layers on my upper body and shorts with toe covers over the shoes. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Jill - Great race report.  Thanks for sharing.  Congrats on a great race, your splits were pretty impressive.  You will rock that marathon in a few weeks.</p>

<p>I am proud to say, the treadmill did not win today! After a little self-talking to (went something like, "you never know what you're going to get on race day so you better just suck it up and get out there you freaking sissy!") I ran 10 soggy miles in the Parkway. The rain started to come down harder around mile 7 and I had to kick it back to the car. I don't even have time for a hot shower, gotta go pick up my preschooler.</p>
