Good morning <b>Jill</b> and those to follow!<br>
I hope you and <b>Heather</b> had a great run<br><br>
I need to do 2 or 3 miles at some point today for a recovery run. It will probably have to be on the treadmill.<br><br>
Have a great day!

Awake and having some coffee, getting ready to do my first long run in a while. Plan is at least 10 miles, then checking how everything feels and if I feel good, extending it out farther.

Morning All,<br><br>
Planning on something easy again today, around 5 or so. I'll get back into the double digits tomorrow. I think that we are also playing tennis with some neighbors this afternoon if the weather holds.<br><br>
Who's racing this weekend? Good Luck!

Take care of that thing and don't let it get to the big-daddy-of-em-all stage like the head cold I had last week. I was wiped out for 4 days and am still phlegm-ing, etc.<br>
Airborne.<br>
That.sounds.great!<br>
You are one brave sole my friend!<br><br>
I'm going to shoot for 12M today - 12 degrees and breezy...jeesh. The Nor'easter is hitting us at midnight tonight so we'll be in lockdown tomorrow.<br><br>
By the way, we have some 30's posting POTD reports in the PRT if interested. <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(me included)</span>. I haven't been around in a few days - hope all is well.<br>
Good fitness all!<br>
Cheers

I totally planned to do that run this year---every year, I tell myself that, since I am allegedly a member of the running club that puts it on, I should run it.<br><br>
And every year I have some injury, conflict, or something that keeps me from it.<br><br>
Technically, I think I could run 5K, even though my return to running has been spotty at best, but we have a family commitment tomorrow.<br><br>
I WILL go to the am Spin class, though. I will. I swear.

Cross training on the agenda today although I think I want to take about an hour walk at the park and just try to relax and listen to some tunes. It will probably do me good in a variety of ways.

nice boB! looking forward to 2008 so that mine will be a little fuller as well - that is unless the log here kicks ass and I use it instead.

good morning.<br><br>
I will be abstaining from exercise today. my body(my own doing) has reached the pinnacle of exhaustion and strain. I will be abstaining from all things deemed fun and enjoyable for the remainder of the weekend I believe...<br><br>
oh...except im going to the game tonight.<br><b>Beth</b>, we are playing against your team. I hope we beat the snot right out of you. the thrashers that is....not you literally. Oops! I've already broken my no fun rule for the day...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Take care of you, <b>Mr.Greenberg, sir.</b><br><br>
I just bought some for my boys for Xmas. They don't look like the ones my mama used to wear? They're all new and fangangled. Have fun with it <b>Maureen!</b><br><br>
Enjoy the day. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_salut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="salute"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sad2"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="huh">

Whhheeeee indeed - this made me laugh.<br><br>
11 miles, 18 *. My hair froze, and I had a head band on the first few miles that I tossed on my driveway when I was warm enough. That is frozen now too.

That stunk. I never had this happen before really, at least not on a long run at easy aerobic effort -- blood sugar when I finished had skyrocketed to 280 mg/dl, way out of range. I know all my insulins were good from the overnight testing -- maybe the fact that it was in the upper 20's my body reacted by releasing more glucose wanting to stay warm? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused"> I don't know, though it helps explain why on the second time out-and-back I began slowing down horribly.<br><br>
10.2 miles today. Damn it.

<b>Winter!</b> Say hi to Eric Perrin for me! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> He's my boy! I had fun meeting him on the meet and greet night pre-season and speaking French with him. He seemed surprised! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> Oh, and you probably will win. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"> I'm going to see your team on Thursday! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
OK, still no running for me. It's awful. Schedule is just wierd and I've been in a strange place lately. I really want to get back to running, though. I think the hardest part is going for the first run again. It will happen. Probably on a day when I don't have a party, errands, date, tutoring, work, cleaning, family stuff, etc!<br><br>
Wanted to say "good luck" (though it's probably done now...) to <b>Ailarie and Radioyada</b> at the Jingle Jog this year! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Have great runs and races this week peeps! Stay warm!

<b>((((LL))))</b> You and I both. This will make <i>day 4</i> that I have not run. Not running today either. Hope you feel better!<br><br>
PS-<b>Madison peeps</b>...I posted some hotel info for you as I promised I would. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><b>Oache and Nettie and Sage</b> may have other ideas.<br><br>
Good luck, racers!! Hope your run was good <b>Saucon</b> and <b>Jill!</b>

The 30s thread always helps in the strangest of ways...my craptastic tiredness from yesterday turned into a bit of a sore throat this morning. <b>2oh's</b> comment about <b>Airborne</b> reminded me I have a bazillion samples of it sitting within arm's reach! So maybe I will get out and about to exercise sometime today!<br><br>
Great news...<b>I ran last night!</b> The chiro gave me permission to start up - just for a few minutes at a stretch, but running's running!<br><br>
I took a 4.5 hour nap yesterday afternoon, had no appetite and no motivation to exercise. I finally got to the gym at 8pm and spent 40 minutes on a recumbent bike. Before I left, I got a sudden surge of "hey, I could do a little running right now!" So I did about 1 mile of running total, mixing in walking every .30 or so.<br><br>
It was nice!<br><br>
So, today is either the elliptical or a nice long walk.<br><br><b>Good luck to Radio and Ailarie!</b><br><br><b>Moe</b> if you make it to your 5k tomorrow in the weather we're getting, I will be super impressed!<br><br>
Have fun with your long runs and short runs and all the exercising in between!
