<p>Getting on in the day for the Easties, so let's get this party started.  I have to go over to my mom's to help set up her new computer, so I'm just having a few dfrinks before we start into that.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif" title="">  Will return to tally later.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>September means a new season, back to school, new dreams.  If you could live anywhere, where would it be?  And, yes, sorry to say, you still have to make a living there, but you have the power now to do anything at all you'd like to do.  Would it change from what you're currently doing, or what would be the ultimate for you now?</p>
<p> </p>

<p>Hi there Sans Souci! Good to see you indeed. I've been away doing family and vacation related things and always running, running, running---back in MA this weekend to do the final settling-in details for my super-Granny* and then leaving again tomorrow morning for my most favorite place and where I'd live if I could. Great timing on the question! I would live just North of Lake Placid, NY in the Adirondacks---in view of some of the high peaks and near a little lake I've been eyeing for years. Love it there and we'll be hiking, swimming, canoeing and running for the next few days before heading back for the start of school and cross-country/hockey practice and reality. Give me the Adirondacks (and I can continue in my current profession too---love that) and I am a happy girl. Of course I'd travel to see KR and RA friends and my work gives me enough of the city fix when needed.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Big ass mileage weeks are ending---hit 88 miles last week and I am ready, ready, ready to bring it down. Also racing on Labor Day (New Haven 20k) and hope to rock it, so here goes:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>8/30   7-8 easy----easy 7 in am/easy 3 in pm---<strong>10 total</strong></p>
<p>8/31   7-8 easy   11.8 at 7:53 pace in am/3.4 easy in pm----<strong>15.2 total</strong></p>
<p>9/1     14 w/[email protected] in middle----switched it up a bit, <strong>7.5 fartlek and hilly</strong></p>
<p>9/2      10     <strong>15 steady</strong></p>
<p>9/3      7 pace run in am/ easy in pm    no time for a double today---<strong>10 easy</strong></p>
<p>9/4      6 easy  <strong>7.8 miles</strong> with miles 3-5 at 6:58, 6:52, 6:50</p>
<p>9/5      4 with striders  <strong>4.2</strong> with striders and in my racing flats.roar.</p>
<p><strong>weights, core, flex stuff as usual 3-4x</strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>69.7 miles</strong>---good week and feeling to race some more</p>
<p> </p>
<p>* <em><span style="font-size:10px;">S<span style="font-size:11px;">uper Granny rallied all the way back from ICU last month and is now the oldest resident at a "lightly assisted" living facility close-by to us. Annoyed that the elevators are so slow, she takes the stairs easily to her 3rd floor quarters. She dethroned a 96 year-old who is likely plotting to steal her dentures or something. </span></span></em></p>
<p> </p>
<p>With this new season I am reminded to keep gratitude in my attitude always</p>

<p>Thanks for the thread, SS. Yes, no yoga classes last week, since the times of the classes available for me to attend just didn't work with the chores (and child-shuffling) I needed to get done. That's one of the benefits of running for me, in that I'm not tied down to a set schedule of either 9:30am or 7pm. It is what it is.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Your question is reminiscent to me of what MrOM is always asking me, and honestly, I really don't know. Having never actually lived anywhere else other than where I live now, it would be difficult to extrapolate. Also, if I really wanted to live somewhere else, wouldn't I be there now already??</p>
<p> </p>
<p>This week's plan is similar to last week's, in that I want to hold at just about 40 miles for the week. I've dropped a bit of weight over the past couple weeks, and that seems to be helping support all this running I'm doing lately, above and beyond what had been my "norm" all these years. Also, my S/I issues seem to have finally resolved themselves, since the pain I had from that area is really what kept me from running more. Honestly, I found that the more I'd take yoga classes, the most I'd be susceptible to having my sacrum get knocked out of alignment. I still do my own "meditation" of sorts, and my own spontaneous (albeit short) practices, so I really don't feel much is lacking in that area. Interesting how it's all evolved for me.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>OK, enough with the dreaming, on with the scheming....</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Mon..... yoga</p>
<p>Tues.... 4 miles AM, 4 miles PM (ah, balance!)</p>
<p>Wed.... 5.5 miles</p>
<p>Thur.... 6 miles, yoga</p>
<p>Fri....... 9.25 miles</p>
<p>Sat..... 4.5 miles</p>
<p>Sun.... 6 miles, plus 3.5 miles</p>
<p> </p>
<p>totals: 42.75 miles (a weekly PR!), 2x yoga</p>

<p>Thanks for keeping tabs on us SS!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Quite the thought provoking question, which when I dwell on too long tends to make me a tad forlorn.  So I'll just throw out something glib like golf pro in Maui and call it good.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>H2C recovery week:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>M - 5 slow recovery miles...<strong>Actual:</strong> 5 miles at 7.33/mi.  NOT a recovery run! </p>
<p>Tu - 5 trail miles...<strong>Actual:</strong>  5.5 slippery miles in the rain. 9:03/mi.  I'll call this my recovery run.</p>
<p>W - off</p>
<p>Th - 6 easy miles...<strong>Actual:</strong> 6 miles at 8:15/mi, but nothing 'easy' about them.</p>
<p>F - off</p>
<p>Sa - college football</p>
<p>Su - 12 easy...<strong>Actual:</strong> 12 tailgating recovery miles at 7:59/mi. Ugh.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Planned: 28 miles...<strong>Actual: 28.5 miles</strong></p>

<p>Wow, I can be whatever I want to be, do whatever I want to do, live wherever I want to live.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I guess I'll stay here. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif" style="width:33px;height:35px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Editing to add that "It's a Wonderful Life"is my favorite movie, not my favorite "Christmas movie"; but not for the whole "a man who has friends is not a failure" theme.  It's because sometimes we wind up living our whole lives someplace, doing something we think we hate, for what we think is too little pay, and one day we realize that right where we are is the middle of the world's greatest diamond mine, and we've just been too possessed by selfish dreaming (and growing bitter) to realize that all around us are the gifts that the God who loves us has given us.  To paraphrase one of our wonderful posters, <em>Enjoy the Gifts!</em>  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Monday.......................6 miles inc 2*1mi @10k and 6*200m, stretch..................<strong>6.5</strong> miles per plan (extra recovery jog)</p>
<p>Tuesday......................6 recovery w/strides,stretch, core, strength.....................<strong>5</strong> miles per plan (pushups only strength work still)</p>
<p>Wednesday.................6 easy / fartlek, stretch..................................................<strong>6.5</strong> easy with strides, stretch, strength</p>
<p>Thursday.....................7.5 inc 4mi @ 15k & 1mi @ 10k, core, stretch................<strong>10.5</strong> inc 4 mi @ 15k, core, stretch</p>
<p>Friday.........................Rest, stretch, strength ....................................................8 miles walking, stretched, strength</p>
<p>Saturday.....................5 inc 6*100m strides, stretch, core..................................<strong>7.75</strong> miles, stretch</p>
<p>Sunday.......................Adjust as needed.............................................................<strong>4.0</strong> miles recovery, stretched, core, strength</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Total Plan...................38.5 miles, stretch daily, 3 days core, 2 days strength (Flirting with 40.  Hmmmm)</p>
<p>Execution....................40.25 miles, stretched daily, 3 days core, 3 days strength. </p>

<p>Thank you SS!!</p>
<p>If I could live anywhere - it would probably be Victoria (because I don't want MS to ever buy a zucchini!) or one of those quaint islands up that way. PNW living is my style, I like the misty rain, I like the comfortably warm summers (70's to me is comfortable), I like a simplified lifestyle. For $$ I would have a cottage style bed & breakfast vacation getaway.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My plan this week is to run between 20-25 miles - whereever I can fit it in.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="color:#000080;">mon: ..... rest day</span></p>
<p><span style="color:#000080;">tues: ..... lazy day </span></p>

<p>Thanks, SS. My week is all done for last week, ready for the tally. And my race on Saturday was a course PR, made all the more incredible by the crappy weather and obstacles on the course (like hay bales and logs to jump!).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hmmm, if I could live anywhere? Not sure. I've got a big list of "no's" for a future home (no tornadoes, no snakes, no poisonous spiders, etc) that drives DH nuts. He'd love to live somewhere else. Somewhere hot. I don't do heat too well. I don't mind cold. But I'd love to live somewhere where I could have horses and do something "horsey" for a living. Too hard to do that here. Like Tammy, I do like the PNW, but I'm not into rain that much. So until I figure out where this place is, like BTY I guess I'll just stay here.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Monday: Rest Day</p>
<p>Tuesday: 5.6 miles run at lunch, .6 mile walk</p>
<p>Wednesday: 10.1 miles o' hilly trails, 8:42 avg pace; .32 mile walk after</p>
<p>Thursday: 6.2 miles @ 8:23 avg pace, .6 mile walk</p>
<p>Friday: 5.1 miles on the trails, .5 mile walk</p>
<p>Saturday: 15.3 miles including the Ester Dome trek, 9:11 avg pace; .61 mile walk after</p>
<p>Sunday:<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family:Arial, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;color:rgb(68,68,68);">9.5 easy effort miles on rolling hills, .42 mile walk</span></p>

<p> </p>
<p>I'd like to live on a houseboat on Lake Union in Seattle, or almost anywhere in Portland.  I love my hometown!  <span style="font-size:12px;">I waffle between wanting to be a piano tuner or something like that, or wanting to be a higher level university administrator type....</span></p>

<p>Thanks for taking over SS. <strong>My totals for last week are:  1 weight session, 5 miles walking, 25 miles running</strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>HtC was good this year. I ran faster than I expected given I haven't done any speed work this year and I wasn't the least bit sore afterwards. I am a little tired though after two weekends in a row of all-nighters.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm content where I live or I wouldn't live here. Life is too short to compromise on something so important as geographical location. I wouldn't mind a different house, though. My actual house is fine (although I'd be happier with something smaller) but taking care of 5 acres is getting to be a bit much. I'd love a very small but private yard. I also like my job, its very diverse. If I could make a change job wise (without having to worry about a paycheck) I'd chose to be a fitness and lifestyle coach for out-of-shape, middle-aged and older women. I've loved working with my beginner runners and would find a career doing that to be very satisfying, but I think asking people to pay for it would diminish my satisfaction.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'll start ramping up gradually this week:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Monday: recovery run...................<strong>4 miles</strong></p>
<p>Tuesday: 5 miles..........................<strong>5 miles and a massage</strong><img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif" title=""></p>
<p>Wednesday: weights and 8 miles....<strong>6 miles</strong></p>
<p>Thursday: 5 miles.........................<strong>5 miles</strong></p>
<p>Friday: weights.............................<strong>rest</strong></p>
<p>Saturday: 10 miles........................<strong>10 miles</strong></p>
<p>Sunday: 20 miles on the mt bike....<strong>20 miles on the mt. bike</strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Total: 30 running, 20 mt. bike</strong></p>

<p>Wow, SS...... you're asking a tough one for me.  30 years with the same company in the same place kind of does a number on the "What if" dreaming.... or as I like to put it ..... "don't confuse the horizon with the top of your rut!".  Or maybe I just don't think about it much 'cause its too disturbing that so much of life had gone by and so little of where I am now is by deliberate design, but rather the result of aimless drift.  Perhaps, like Lab..... I'd just better not go there.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>A plan for the week I can handle.</p>
<p>        </p>
<p>           (plan) <strong>actual</strong></p>
<p>M....... (rest) <strong>rest</strong></p>
<p>T........ (5 miles with tempo)  <strong>5, with 3 miles at 8:34 ...weeeeee</strong></p>
<p>W....... (2.5 miles) <strong>2.6</strong></p>
<p>T........ (XT/core) <strong>Elliptical & Core</strong></p>
<p>F........ (5) <strong>5.5</strong></p>
<p>S........(12.5) <strong>rest</strong></p>
<p>S........ (rest) <strong>13.3</strong> (ouch .... sprained ankle!!)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Total:  <strong>26.4</strong> miles</p>

<p>Thanks Tamster and SS,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So I can live anywhere and do anything? Then I certainly have the power to move other people out.  Berkeley, in the hills overlooking SF and with easy access to the large east bay parks for long runs.  Goldilocks weather, with morning fog, sunny afternoons.  And the population size of Northern California would be at 1950 levels.  Maybe I'd teach sailing out by the Golden Gate (see avatar).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>M....... <strong>4 M</strong></p>
<p>T........ volleyball</p>
<p>W....... <strong>5 M</strong> on TM with 3 at tempo pace</p>
<p>T........ <strong>4 M</strong>, then volleyball</p>

<p>Hi Sous!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I would probably live in Sedona and hike (and run) every square inch of the red rocks.  I'd also take occasional jaunts to Northern Michigan when it warms up in Sedona.  For making a living, I'd continue to sell my software online. <a href="http://www.WRKDBF.com" target="_blank">http://www.WRKDBF.com</a>  I can do that from anywhere.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The left leg seems to be holding up okay (not fully ache-free, but not getting any worse either), so we'll be putting in some miles this week, with quality.  The leg doesn't seem to mind easy miles, but quality may be another matter.  We'll see!  Prime marathon training time right now (and next week)</p>
<p> </p>

<p>I like living in northern Utah, but I would like a winter home in southern Utah or thereabouts.  Although I do enjoy software development, I think I'd like to grow food for a living, but without having to worry about the $.</p>
