<p>Good morning, everyone.   Glad to see you back in the saddle, <strong>Apple</strong>.  And good luck today, <strong>Dan</strong>.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Lotsa' running for me this week.  18 Monday, ten yesterday, 13 this morning.  Don't seem to be losing any weight this training cycle -- holding steady at 172.  Shrug.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Monday's run contained a number of miles at 6:50 pace.  I was struggling through them when three black birds began following me, about twenty feet up.  They were making an awful racket, I suppose discussing among themselves how to split up the carcass when this obviously distressed animal they were chasing finally collapsed and died.  After a half mile, I stopped, chewed them out, and told them they were wasting their time, as I didn't think this particular run was going to kill me.  They talked it over and left. </p>

<p>Good morning BBS and Chances.  I got in a 3 mile tempo run this morning.  1 mile warmup then 7:12; 7:06; 7:13 miles.  1 miles cool down for 5 miles in 39:00(7:47).  I will eventually get in a core workout this morning. </p>

<p><strong>Chances</strong> - glad you survived your dice with deadly Blackbirds.  That's a lot of miles... are you eating a deep dish pizza after eat one? </p>
<p><strong>BBS</strong> - enjoy the recovery and hope you get a nice gift.</p>
<p><strong>kfuller</strong> - nice tempo run!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The drive back from Hilton Head caught up with me and I was feeling all off my 40 years this morning.  I bailed on my planned run to gym, weights and run home to get 2 more hours of sleep.  Will try to get out at lunch for a 5er birthday run in the blazing sun... </p>

<p>Don't even get me started on the weight thing.<img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/mad.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Fishbowl for me this morning.  I think it was 2500???  Quick change then out for a trot.  Oh boy... certainly feeling that long hard ride yesterday!  But, it was good to get out and run from the gym.  Short 5 with dead even splits.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am test wearing Brooks Adrenaline 11's.  Hard to tell at this point as my legs weren't totally fresh.  But, basically feel like any other Brooks.  Only thing I don't like about 'em is they are white with blue.  I'm sick of blue Adrenalines!  Better than the purple Defyance though...  I'll have a couple surveys to fill out and that's it!  Pretty good deal on my part!</p>

<p>Kevin- Nice job on the Tempo, you ever do any 5K paced tempo runs?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>RA- Happy Birthday!!!!! You're from England?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I can't believe I posted that it was 'nice' today.  Its sooo freaking humid out there after all that rain we had the past few days.  3 miles over and done with, took the 1st mile to work the kinks my speedwork put in me yesterday, last 2 were just scorching hot.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BTW- In my speed session yesterday- did 8x400 @3k pace w/ 2min jog rec. all at 2% incline... the 2% is a booger bear, even doin measly 1/4s</p>

<p>Morning all,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm the one everybody hates for being so light, so I'll just stay quiet on the weight issue. Meanwhile I am planning to hit the track tonight for the weekly club workout...website says 6-8 x 600 which shouldn't be too taxing, and that's fine with me since I have a 5k on Friday night.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Chances - sounds to me like you're still working off that half a cow you ate last week. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/lol.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>RA - now that you're 40 you need to clear off a shelf for all that new AG hardware.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BBS - getting serious about that trail running, eh? It's fun and the right shoes definitely help. Happy shopping.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>4BM - Brooks test wearer. I'm surprised I never thought of that. I should do that given how much I like Brooks' stuff (both shoes and apparel).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>kevin - nice job on the tempo</p>
<p> </p>

<p>Hi everyone.  I think I gained 6 pounds just during my 2 week vacation, so I'm carrying some extra fluff, too.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nothing today.  Too much going on.</p>

<p><strong>4bm</strong>, I just sent back my test sneakers to New Balance. I added my name to the database 2 years ago and was equally surprised when a new pair of shoes showed up for me to test. Enjoy.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Happy Birthday <strong>RA</strong>!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Great job on those workouts. I went out for a 5 mi recovery jog this morning between raindrops. Felt good.</p>

<p>Happy Birthday, <strong>RunAsics!</strong>  -- I think you'll find the 40-44 AG quite challenging.  Full of wide-eyed, crazy, mid-life crisis types.  (I've heard. -- glances over at <strong>Hawk</strong>.)</p>

<p>So, I ran a bit longer than planned over lunch.  Ended with 7.77 miles, completely by chance, at a leisurely pace.  I realized as I was walking back to my desk that it's actually the date, i.e. 7/14 (7+7), which is better than running my age since that'll take most of the week.  It was a blazing inferno but some random shade a breeze helped but even after a shower I'm still sweating.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Jill</strong> - nice job of dancing between the rain drops.  Somehow they always hit me.</p>
<p><strong>Jebba</strong> - Must be water weight.  Hope you get time to relax and brush that fluff off.</p>
<p><strong>Hawk</strong> - enjoy the track. I can never make track on Wednesday eves. Note that the 40-44 AG is deeper than the 35-39 AG.  I'd have to run a mid 17 5k to get in the top 5 of a circuit races. So, my strategy is to find small, low key races to garner hardware :)  I may also reset all my PRs.</p>
<p><strong>4boysmom</strong> - Nice job on the multisporting.  So, what's a short mile?  A kilometer?</p>
<p><strong>BBS</strong> - nice speedwork! don't break the TM.</p>

I don't even wanna THINK about 45-49.  I'm desperately hanging onto 40-44!!!  I was talking with a tri-buddy at the gym today.  She was lamenting that she's now 40-44.  Ack!  That means we're racing against each other!  Then I thought again.  Nope.  With USAT, you age up on Jan 1st, no matter when your birthday is. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sorry 'bout the "code talk". </p>
<p>* long mile= longer than a mile, shorter than a half mile</p>
<p>* short mile= longer than a half mile, shorter than a full mile.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, today was 4.9m, so a short 5m.</p>
<p> </p>
