<p>TEAM LIT, that's us!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Cak: Thanks for the shout out yesterday. The car thing was actually comical. It's all snowy and slippery, and here comes this car backing out of the driveway. I am, of course, coming from the opposite direction, so the drive isn't looking my way -- or even at the end of the driveway where I am. The car, in the slippery snow, comes flying in reverse out of the driveway because, I'm guessing, the driver saw it had a break in traffic on the street to reverse out in time and go forward. Only as all of this was happening, there I am totally out of sight of the driver. The car came flying at me, and with no where to go, I ran away from the car, as in in the same direction. I'm ran across the street -- meanwhile cars on either side are now waiting for it -- and up and on the lawn of the house across the street. I knew what the car was doing, so I knew if I were up the curb and on the lawn I'd be okay. So the car does its thing, never seeing me, and goes. As I continue running onward, a minivan pulls up beside me and down comes the window. It was actually a friend's wife who just dropped her daughters at school. She said, "That car almost hit you!" She witnessed the whole thing. "I almost chased her [the other driver], I was so mad. I can't believe she didn't see you." I explained what I thought happened. Funny that I had a witness. And this witness was the wife of Andyman. Think you know that name. Close call that was under control, for the most part.</p>

<p>Mornin' peeps - just popping in to say hey!  Haven't been very active around here lately (lots going on in real life), but I'm keeping tabs on all of you.  Stay warm and safe out there.  <span><img alt="icon_sunny.gif" id="user_yui_3_4_1_2_1326901722911_162" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_sunny.gif"></span></p>

<p>On January 18, 1778, the English explorer Captain James Cook becomes the first European to discover the Hawaiian Islands when he sails past the island of Oahu. Two days later, he landed at Waimea on the island of Kauai and named the island group the Sandwich Islands, in honor of John Montague, who was the earl of Sandwich and one his patrons.  (<a href="http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/cook-discovers-hawaii" target="_blank">history.com</a>)</p>

<p>Hiya Sparty!  Come visit us more often.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Another base building day for me.  Started with my standard lunges warmup, then jumped on the TM.  Did an easy 10.5 on the TM in 1:15.  Finished up with some foam roller work.  Another 10.5 on the schedule for tonight.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It's my final full day on the North Slope.  Heading to Anchorage tomorrow then back home tomorrow night.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Find your paradise, tri-peeps!</p>

<p>Hi Sparty!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Late start here, we woke to a few inches of nasty, sloppy slush.  Enough to close the schools, but not enough to play in or stay home from work.  Schedule calls for a 4-mile run, I think I'll wait for the slush to clear.  And if it doesn't, I may have to cut the run down to 3 miles, as my only 4-mile routes would be way too dangerous with slush on the shoulders.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Oh, and masters swim this evening.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Happy Humpday!</p>

<p>Cak - your swimming workouts inspire me. I'm going to have to try the 50's with the different hands - sounds fun! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Havent posted in a couple days -</p>

<p>Today I consider a milestone: First time in my life that I got likened to Chuck Norris!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>As for the close call, thanks for the good words, but AdCo is right here. I've been running for many years, and this type of close call has happened to me, like, 30 times. It'll happen again. I'm pretty tuned in to this sort of thing happening since, after all, it is a frequent enough occurrence. Kind of par for the course, if you will.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Such as with this incident. I anticipated it happening right away and immediately darted across the street to avoid something worse.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good friend of mine went over a hood the other day. Now that was contact. That was close!</p>

<p>As opposed to when a nameless member of this forum "ran into the side of a car." <br>

<p>I swim what the coach tells me to swim.  <span><img alt="biggrin.gif" id="user_yui_3_4_1_2_1326924980582_161" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span>Swimming with fists is easy to explain.</span></p>
<p><span>When you make an "OK" sign with your fingers, you shouldn't feel water go through the "hole."  This enforces correct alignment of elbow-forearm-hand.</span></p>
<p><span>The other two we do much less often and just feel weird, but they probably work to emphasize the same as above.</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p><span>Walk with the dogs and a strength workout this evening!</span></p>

<p>Good Awareness Thor. Stay on it!</p>

<p>Me, PT in the AM, ankle MRI in the PM to rule out stress fracture. PT2 thinks no way, PT1 say hmmmmm dunnno... maybe.... Doc 1 says maybe. Doc 2 says possible. So... MRI it is, get this answered once and for all.  Ankle was clean for 2 days, did a piss ant slow run, and it's been irritated 10days since. BOO.</p>

<p>Nice going on being aware, Indeed, Thor. </p>
<p>cak - Thanks for continusing to post your workouts.  I used your workout more than a few times. :)</p>
<p>Ron - feel your frustrations.  Stay positive - think about what you CAN do. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nice to be back home and hang around the family for a change.  Last night was aweful.  A training ended at 5pm.  Two hours drive (snow blowing, icy condition) with co-workers from Mexico who needed a ride to the airport which was sort of on my way to my home & next destination.  Dropped them off at Best Buy (for their shopping), went home for re-packing and giving a quick hug to DH and kids.  Picked up the co-workers at the Best Buy, drove the airport to drop them off.  Snow was blowing hard.  Drove 2.5hours to Ohio (for this morning's meeting).  Phew.  I was too stubburn not to run.  So hit the TM at 10:30pm.  2miles. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Today I was able to squeeze 8 miles in the evening on TM.  5x1000m at "I" pace (6:51) w/ 3min. rest was the plan.  The pace was getting a bit too easy (relatively speaking, of course) over the last 5 weeks and the last week's interval on the track was 6:35~6:40pace, so I decided to do this at 9mph (6:40).  And felt good so added the 6th interval.  Felt under a good control.  The only thing I didn't like is how the TM moved at the speed.  I don't know how Mike/Thor (or thier TM's) does at much faster speed.....   Anyway.  Total 8miles done with plenty left in my legs.  Yay. </p>

<p>Thor... the nimble Ox. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>CAK: Very interesting hand drills.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Yo Sake: I admire your determination to get the workouts in with so much travel and a crazy schedule.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Seattle is pretty snowbound today. The only upside is that it's totally acceptable to work from home... encouraged even. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>4k rowing for me. Knee is more and more solid. Probably in part to the lack of running, but it's good for it to get a chance to heal with non-impact movement. </p>
