Merigayle - I look forward to your report on Umstead - As a few years from now when I am no longer instrested in Marathons - I looked to this as a good 1st 100 miler. I did a 50 last fall with lots of Rocks, Roots and Hills and it was too disruptive to training - Maybe if I had ran it slower it would have not been so bad.<br><br>
It has to be sooo exciting! <img alt="icon_bounce.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_bounce.gif">

Which 50M did you do?<br>
As first 100M races go, this should be good. Rocky Raccoon is another that is a good first time 100M race.<br>
I am hoping with all the support going with me, they kick my ass to the finish no matter what. I am very scared of the unknown and how i will do after 50M. <img alt="icon_cyclops_ani.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_cyclops_ani.gif"><br>
I still have not figured out who you are <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

Yes folks, I <b>finally</b> got to run today. Okay, it was only 2 miles. It was slow, and I was coughing like a chain smoker most of the way. But I got out there, and felt pretty good.<br><br>

Way to go, EQMarathon! By the way, where do you get that hot-rod weather data?<br><br>
My run was a plain-old easy 4 miles on TM at the gym. Don't know why I didn't run outside today, 'cuz it was beautiful. Just didn't. Oh well.

I get the weather data from a website named <a href="http://www.wunderground.com" target="_blank">www.wunderground.com</a><br><br>
I plug in my zip code, and it shows me a bunch of personal weather stations nearby that people have made available for people to use. There is one about 2 miles from my house that I use for my weather data.<br><br>
In terms of the wind chill, I take the Ambient Air temperature, the sustained wind speed, and then plug that data in <a href="http://www.easysurf.cc/cnver16.htm" target="_blank">here</a>.

Yes, glad you got to run Kevin. Don't overdo it tomorrow.<br><br>
Some good running today (even slogging counts... <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"> )<br><br>
I ended up having to run in the afternoon, since I was in very very very early this morning. I'm shoving off for home now after a 9 miler.<br><br>
2.6 miles warmup at about an 8:45 min. mile pace<br>
6x600 metres at a 6:50 pace with 90 seconds of recovery in between.<br>
Then (strange that this happened) 3.1 miles or 5k at MP. I was just going to cruise the last bit, but though that I'd push it a bit.<br><br>
Total: 9 miles in 1:13:31 (drat that one second)<br><br>
Feel okay, but in need of some liquid carbohydrate refreshment. See you all tomorrow.

Checking in after 6 easy windy miles with the running group. I also taught yoga today which felt wonderful.<br><br>
EQ, I can't begin to feel your pain of going so long without a run. I hadn't run for 48 hours due to tapering and was groggy and cranky as a result. Endorphin withdrawal! I'm happy you got out there!<br><br>
Grizzly -- great run!

3 mile recovery run this morning.<br><br>
This afternoon I did a VO2 max/LT test. Wow, was that ever difficult! I did a 1 mile warm up at an easy pace, and then worked up to 7 mph (which is a pretty standard TM pace for me). Once there, they jacked up the incline by 2% every minute. I went by RPE, so once I told them I was at 10, I kept that up until I could go no more. I found myself at 10% incline at 7mph! Ack! That didn't last more than a couple minutes then I called it quits. I was sweating buckets, and I think I only covered a little over a mile for that part of the test.<br><br>
They monitors my heart rate and my oxygen usage, and will be calling me with my report in the next day or so. I was hesitant about forking out the money for the test, but I think it will be really beneficial in my training. It doesn't hurt that the trainer that did the testing was really frickin' cute too. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">

7 miles. Supposed to be easy, but ran with an old training partner who's broke through and now runs marathons 20 minutes faster than I. <img alt="icon_blackeye.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_blackeye.gif"><br><br>
Grizzly- funny how after a good tempo workout that the legs just want to keep moving like that. Nice!<br><br>
Aphigirl- I know how tough those tests are! Do you already know your Max HR? Way to go.<br><br>
EQ- Good job getting out there. Concentrate on rest and nutrition and soon enough you'll increase your frequency. Hang in there.

4 supposedly easy miles in 31:37 as I taper for my race this Saturday. I wanted to go a little easier than that but I guess my body is in good shape and this felt easy.

They figured my max heart rate for me also. That's part of the reason I wanted to do the test, so I know what zones I should be in. I have a tendency to run some of my training runs and recovery runs a little too fast, so if I know what zone I should be working in I think that will help.

6 easy miles on TM tonight 1% 7.5 - Standard slow easy pace -<br><br>
I'm trying to get enough glycogen back in my system to hit Saturday's long run - Hoping for 24 - I am fit enough, but I have been running short on the fuel thing trying for weight loss.
