Good morning. I ran an easy 3.5 on the TM last night. My schedule called for 6x100 striders also, so I just mixed in a few bursts of 0.1 mile at 10mph in my run. Most of the run was done slower than a 9:00 pace, but overall it turned out to be an 8:33 average. I'll take it...<br><br>
Today I'll do about 7-8 miles of hills. My schedule always calls for runs every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. But this is the first week I'll actually do all three of those days in over a month. Something always seems to come up that gets in the way of one of those runs...<br><br>
Well, have a great day, all...

Morning, all.<br><br>
No running last night. Went to Yoga instead. Did what I thought were some very neat shoulder stretches.... until this morning. OOF! the shoulders are fine, but the pectorals? Yeowza.<br><br>
Actually, I still think the stretch was cool.. I just won't underestimate opposing muscle groups next time.<br><br>
Got weight training to fit in during work today, and a deep tissue massage tonight, so it'll be day 2 of no running. I'll crank back up on Thurs.

Good Morning!<br><br>
15 is the plan for this morning. I'm feeling pretty good, so it should be a nice run.<br><br>
I did sign up for the "Race for the Cure" on Saturday. I know it'll be a little hectic, but I'm feeling the need to redeem myself after my last 5k. It looks like last year there was around ten females sub 20, so it should a nice race to gauge where I'm at in regards to that goal. I think the weather is going to be crappy, though. Highs in the 80's and windy and rainy, hopefully it won't be too bad out. I don't mind the heat or rain too much for such a short race, but the wind messes with me a little.<br><br>
I hope everyone is feeling better today! Be careful out there...

5 miles last night.<br><br>
I did a set of 22 chins this morning, decided not to try to squeeze out a few extra. Start doing that many reps though and it's more about endurance really.

Morning all.<br><br>
Treadmill class tonight.<br><br>
It's going to be a fun one.<br><br>
I believe the instructor said something about mile repeats. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

morning! <img alt="wave.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wave.gif"><br><br>
Got up at 4:30 am and headed to the gym, but on the way there, I decided I wanted to run outside this afternoon instead. Duh. <img alt="tard.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/tard.gif"><br>
So instead of going home and going back to sleep for 45 minutes, I did a short cardio warm up and about 45 mins of weights/core/stretching. I'll get my 5 miles done after walking with the fitness club kids today.<br><br><b>Bob</b> -- you've been getting some good workouts in. good stuff!<br><b>LL</b> - good luck with those repeats <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><b>Christie</b> - travel your way over to Cherry Hill this afternoon around 4pm and run with me. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Drama with the kiddies last night so workout wasn't what I had planned. I did get 45 minutes of strength training and a 1 mile run in. Tonight should be (barring any other injuries) a 5 mile run/walk combo.

I ran 8 mile with hill repeats yesterday - here's the elevation profile from gmaps.<br><img alt="" src="http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb44/dsweet20/CAGXENK5.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
The weird thing is that it was an out & back route with the hills at the 1/2 way point. According to this, the elevation gains/losses are slightly different profiles - I didn't notice that the road was different on the way back. No major 'quakes or techtonic shifting that I noticed other than my footfalls.<br>
I'm happy to find a new hill to run repeats on at work - only problem is that its 3 miles to get there - but it.is.nasty. The top 100' or so are double diamond steep.<br>
10 sleazy (pace) miles on the schedule for me today.

2 miles running and 3 miles walking....done and done....<br><br>
DH and I got in a bit of a pissing match last night and I was still ticked when I woke up this a.m. so it got right on the tmill w/o a care in my head that it would be loud and wake him up 1/2 hour earlier than he usually gets up (awful, huh).

Glad to see another early riser here - I was up at 4:30 again too. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Ok - is it just me, or do mile repeats not sound all that fun? I did 1000m repeats this a.m. and that was quite enough for me!<br><br>
Got 5.5 on the TM this a.m. (intervals - went waaaaaay better than my nightmare interval workout last Saturday). Will do weights at lunch.<br><br><br><b>Jenruns</b> - can't wait to hear about the 5k results!<br><br>
Good runs to all today!

nothing today. I'll try to make up for it tomorrow. I didn't rest at all last night and there was no way I was getting up at 5:45 when I struggled to even get a drop of sleep.

chris, I had a restless night last night also. DD1 is sick and got up a couple times. I didn't want to wake up this morning.

10 miles on the TM this morning. No problems during the run, but my left achilles\PF is barking again now.<br><br>
Decided to run a 15 K race on Sunday. There are a series of races in Western CT called the Boston Buildup. There is a 10 K, 15 K, 20 K, and a 25 K. The 15 K is pretty close to my house.

I've heard of a double chin, but this is ridiculous! I love that line from Fat Bastard - "I've got more chins than a Chinese phonebook!"<br><br><b>JenRuns</b> - Get your buns as close to the start as you can...I've heard those Race For the Cure races are tough if you're wanting to run fast.<br><br><b>LLMileRepeatBerg</b> - Enjoy it tonight...if the pace is really going to be fast, you should show up to your treadmill class with a bike helmet on. That should get some laughs.<br><br>
I think I'm still a day or two from trying to run again. The hammy/groin/quad thing feels far better today - barely a limp, but I can feel it in there. I should be good to run this weekend, easy pace. I'd rather take an extra day or two now then go for a short run today and have to miss the weekend.<br><br>
Anyone heard from Baggs and/or Brandy? Are they gallivanting around Orlando on vacation?

Hey all:<br><br>
Crazy day today. Splitting time between clients today and heading over to NJ this afternoon, hopefully I will make it back in time for my running store run tonight. 10ish easy.<br><br>
1600 repeats can be ugh. Depends on the pace and the rest of course. They can be a big help for the 5k though. You can spend a lot of time at vo2max.<br><br><b>JensRuns</b> - good luck this weekend.

I know it Tom - I think it's a little crazy too but she said the goal was to get as close to VO2 MAX as possible.<br><br>
That'll surely do it.
