<p>8 miles done. Ridiculously nice weather!!!!  Dew point of 50*  Temp was ~55 to start, ~60 to finish.  Hope this lasts.  And I hope other folks dealing with HHH weather get a respite!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good luck the rest of you.  When does Duck's relay kick off?</p>

<p>Good morning!  I'm up bright and early to meet my running peeps.  We start at 6am and run up and down the coast.  There's nothing better than watching surfers, catching dolphin sightings and breathing in the fresh ocean air while you're out running.  Being awake this early makes me fully aware that the days are already getting shorter and the mornings are darker.  Kind of sucks when we're still waiting for summer to happen here in Southern California.  I don't envy the hot and humid days elsewhere, but what I wouldn't do for a couple of warm, sunny days... </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have 16 to run today.  It'll be our third weekend of 16+ miles but the route will be tougher today.</p>

<p>epic fail on my long run today...walked home after 4 miles when a massive blister developed on my right foot.  My own fault, forgot to trim some calluses down yesterday.  No time tomorrow to make it up.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>hope things go better for everyone else.</p>

<p>Morning, everyone.  I got 5 miles in on the trail this morning.  It was 74* and 87% humidity, plus the trail runs along a creek and is overhung with trees.  This makes for a shady run, but the trees keep in the moisture from the creek, so it was steamy under there.  Still, I put my head down, turned my brain to something other than how I was feeling and pulled out a decent run.  I continue to be glad that I halted my marathon training as I would have had to run some ridiculously long miles today and would.not have made it.  I'm looking forward to building back up, though.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good job to everyone who's already gotten out and gotten done this morning and good luck to those with their runs still ahead.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Oh, July total:  77.8.  Respectable and I'll take it.</p>

<p>Wow!  What a gorgeous morning for a run here!  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_cheers.gif" style="width:24px;height:24px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I went out with a buddy last night and had a couple too many beers and stayed up a little too late, so I woke up a little later than planned this morning.  But it was still only 64 degrees when I started my run.  I got in 18 glorious miles!  Felt great the whole way.  Wow, I haven't had a run in temps under 85 in ages, it seems...</p>

<p>Phooey.  Had to cut my run short today.  I'm building up mileage and this month was the highest ever for me.  I definitely felt it this morning and ended up getting in just short of 14 miles for the day instead of the planned 16.  Will now go recover by walking all over the San Diego Zoo.  Lots of hills there -- my quads will be tired by the day's end!</p>

<p>July: 133.70</p>

<p><strong>Missy-</strong> To still be running at this stage is impressive!  With the first I didn't run at all and the second I ran until 14 weeks.  I found the 3 mile flat loop becoming increasingly difficult at that point and I was so sick.  Good for you!!</p>

<p>Holy crap that is awesome, <strong>Missy</strong>!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>KP</strong> - sorry to hear that!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Kath</strong> - way to go!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Cindi</strong> - I always regret it when I do that too (which is more often than I should).  Good luck tomorrow.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nice runs <strong>cherl, bob, litch and ailarie</strong>!  I am envious of your weather <strong>Litch!</strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Way to go <strong>Prae!</strong>  Sounds like your weather is similar to mine today.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I logged 15.  The good news was that is was only 70 and overcast.  The bad news is it was 94% humidity and full sun by the end.  Oooof.  I was a soaking wet, slow mess.  But I am glad to be upping the mileage a bit.</p>

<p>136 for July for me.  Best month this year, but still not where I was hoping - skipped a few runs this month.</p>

<p>Hey all,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Glad someone had good weather and good runs.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Missy - that mileage teh awesome!!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, I got up and met my running group for a 5:00am start.  The weather:  80 degrees and 90% humidity and sun wasn't even up!  The humidity was forecasted to go down as the sun came up.  Problem there was the temp was going to start climbing in a hurry.  I went out of the first loop with my usual running partners and that turned out to be too quick of a pace.  probably averaging about 7:50 and in this weather I should have been around 8:20 or so.  I fell off the back of those two around 5 miles in.  By then was totally drenched.  I squished my way back to the run store, changed my shirt and headed out on the 2nd loop with some differen people.  We climbed the mountain and headed into downtown.  Of course that put another trip back over the mountain between me and my car.  Things went from bad to worse.  I kept dropping back and picking up slower runners in my training group to run with.  At 13 miles I called it, but I still had a 3 mile walk/run back to the car that included a climb up and over the mountain.  So 16 miles total with the last 3 more walk than run.  I'm ready for this weather to go, but they're saying August will be just as bad here as July.  </p>

<p>That stinks Tim.  Sorry to hear it.  When I was logging my 9:30 miles this morning I kept telling myself it was okay in this weather and that if I went any faster I would likely bomb.  Been there and done that too many times and it is no fun.  Rehydrate and recover up!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>July mileage: 151</p>
<p> </p>
<p>That number is going to jump up in August.</p>

<p>Nice mileages guys.  <strong>Missy</strong>, you are freakin' impressive!  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/notworthy.gif" style="width:29px;height:15px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Tim</strong>, sorry the run was so tough...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I finished July with 165.2 miles.  That's my highest total of 2010.  I was kinda slow overall, but I'm sure all the heat has something to do with that...</p>

<p>Hi all - badly needed to sleep in, so I didn't make it to my running club's group run which were out on the trails near Oakland.  So I substituted a closer alternative for 15.2 miles in about 2 1/2 hours of running.  Only 6 of the miles were on the trails, which are somewhat hilly but tame by this area's standards (just click the link for the <a href="http://www.runningahead.com/logs/1191faed7d684fd0b9c51f26a4f55679/workouts/884bce6c109d4dc380de3d139d010c9d/map" target="_blank">elevation profile</a>).   I'm thinking I want to build up more runs on trails the rest of the year to help make my running stronger in general.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sorry to hear about the blisters <strong>kp</strong> and egads on that suckage, <strong>Timr</strong> - you gutted it through, though, so big ups to you <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_salut.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Great runs <strong>Ailarie, RTFL, cherl, boB, Litch, Kath, Mindi, Missy</strong> - keep up the good work!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I finished out July at 128.1 mi - a nice step back up from two months of taking it easy mileage-wise (78.5 mi each in May & June.)</p>

We're done and recuperating from the relay. We finished less than 10 minutes off from our pre-race guesstimate. I got 21 scalps during my three legs and ran pretty well despite the altitude. The last leg was very tough with 900+ ft of climbing over 4 miles.<br><br><br><br>
We're awaiting final results to see if we Won the mixed masters competition. The boomers were great and the relay was incredibly fun and scenic.
