20milers. Due to unexpected family gathering, I needed to start this long run at 5am!!! Enjoyed it very much to my surprise. 6 mile out and back x 3 and a few at the end. It was pitch dark and I was half away asleep so I went to zen-like mode. The pace progressively got faster for each 6 miles. The last 5miles were 8:15-30ish. I am where I want to be at this phase of my training. Followed by an icebath while sipping a weight-loss shake (the best quick recovery drink!!).<br><br>
"This day in...." will be next. Have a good Sunday, all.<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

On this day in 1794, President George Washington approved a measure adding two stars and two stripes to the American flag, following the admission of Vermont and Kentucky to the union.<br><br>
YoshiGirl: I honesly LOVE those painfully early starts for long runs. Something about running long in the dark. Those early miles fly by. No cars. No nothing but bliss.<br><br>
GatorGirl: Don't tell me you visited SAGAMORE!!! Yeah girl!!!<br><br>
A very excited Me the morning after watching the Patriots handle the Jags...<br><br>
1 hour Trainer session:<br>
o WU - 20 min<br>
o 4 x 6' G7 (G5 normal) w/3' rest<br>
o CD<br>
Pushed 266W. Not great. But not bad considering yesterday's long run. Gotta get my Tri-bike Trainer-ready. Fit on old bike sucks enough to make anything over 45 minutes very difficult comfort-wise.<br>
Followed immediately by...<br><br>
4 mile brick run. Legs, this time out, felt fatigued much of the time, but pace was good. Was thinking the Trainer session took a lot out of me coupled with yesterday's long run and working all day on the old house. Thought this because the run required more effor than normal. Although all true, when I got back I realized another reason, and that was because I was pushing pace within a few seconds PR for this brick course (I only do this route on my brick runs, never otherwise).<br><br>
Keep your stripe count up to date, Tri-Patriots!

Nothing for me yet, but the sky appears to be (mostly) blue - hopefully the sun will burn off most of the fog by noon or so. Looking forward to a bike ride and short run.<br><br>
Well, I'm sad the Seahawks are done for the year, but I'm glad it was the Packers that knocked them out. My second favorite team.

Nothing here yet either. BrewDad is out on a LR with the running club. We'll meet him for dim sum and hopefully by the time we get home, the fog will have lifted and I can go out on the first outdoor ride of the year. <img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif">

Got my trainer set up in my new place here in Munich. Rode for about 45 minutes, and felt pretty good. I made a few adjustments to my bike (took out a spacer, lowering my handlebars), and they felt good. Not much in the way of a brutal workout or anything. Off to a bar tonight to watch the Giants and Cowboys - the game starts at 10pm here.

Yo Sake--probably one of my favorite runs was the day of the OSU/Michigan game. My choice was to either run before work or run during the game. I opted to run before work, meaning I was out there at 6am.<br><br>
Yesterday early 12m at jsut under 9:00pace. Not sure why I was so slow. I did tackle the MIT hill. It's a two part hill--first is very steep, then short flat, then a slightly more than gradual hill htat goes on forever. Then, up to Cleveland for hubby's family Christmas.<br><br>
This morning, started with a ride. Overcast and next to no wind. 21.5m, 1:22, 15.6mph. Still pretty slow. But, quite the enjoyable ride.<br><br>
Quick change, then out for a run. I strained my groin out of the blocks again. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. It did loosen up, and I had a decent run. New route, so no cues as to how I was doing. I was shocked at the numbers... 2.49m, 19:27, 7:48pace. 5K PR pace is 7:35, so that's fast for me!

Lovely morning for an eleven mile run. Nice to have the shoulder of the road back again. Sadly it's supposed to snow again today, tonight tomorrow. I've enjoyed this brief reprieve from winter.<br><br>
Slowly trying to pull myself back among the living.

An eleven mile run seems like a good start.<br><br>
Well, too much going on today at the Bannon house to be sitting around waiting for the fog to lift, so I bundled up and rode 15 miles in the heavy, drippy, cold fog. Followed immediately by 3-mile brick run. I can tell I'm out of practice, as my legs felt very tired yet my pace was faster than normal. Classic brick symptoms.<br><br>
I'm reserving judgment on the knees until tomorrow, but so far they seem okay. Held a smokin' 16 mph on the bike, which is 1 mph better than last Sunday and 3 mph slower than before my injury started. Good times.

Nice ride, Matt - glad the knee is feeling up to it.<br><br>
Nothing for me. Cleaning the house and watching football, probably a nap later. Sundays always go by too fast!!!

1 hour easy spin this morning. Yesterday I did an easy 6-miler with the running group - a handful of us are either recovering from or fighting an injury, so we took the slow short route. Legs feel pretty decent today, so I'm hoping all of the stretching and icing is paying off.

Cash: Sorry to hear. Never easy loosing a best friend. Hang strong. Maybe go for a run. I'm sure your dog would've liked that in more youthful years.

Cash - My sympathy. We do get attached to the stupid pets, don't we?<br><br>
Charlotte - Way to get back on the (galloping) horse!!<br><br>
Gator Girl flew the coop this afternoon - off to the land of schnitzel.<br><br>
Me - 45 minutes of light work on the trainer while watching the Chargers send Peyton Manning and the Colts packing for vacation. This now leads to a major dilemma in our house - DS2 is a huge Chargers fan (mostly LT) so he's not sure who to cheer for when they play the Patriots next week!<br><br>
C'mon Giants!!!

Well after my tire debacle (see rant in the dinner thread), things took a turn for the better as the fog lifted and I headed out on Bella. 21.6 miles in Z2. Slow but it felt great! I think every cyclist in Washington county was out enjoying the weather. Had a couple of guys latch on to my wheel for a few miles but they were nice & chatty and the road was flat so it's all good.

Cashmason: Sorry about your dog.<br><br>
Took DS snowboarding and I got to slowly ski so it wasn't that much of a workout but it was fun to hang out with him. Beautiful sunny 40 degree day on the mountain.<br>
Great music blasting in the terrain park.<br>
Lifted weights for 30 minutes when I got home.
