    Hi everyone, again it's a new week. Hope the weather will clear soon cause we've had rain and cold for days now. Today was a rest day for my legs, so did an UB endurance w/o including abs. Nice! So what did you do today?

        Today - an easy 7 on the treadmill.

        I've got a fever...

          5.6 miles today. A little on the fast end of easy, but it was snowing, and I felt good. And I pulled back ahead of the bunny.

                I had planned on 16 miles today, but I upped it to 17. Close to 16, I was feeling really good and relaxed. I read something about increasing lactic threhhold in RW last month, so I decided I'd like a little bit of pain to run through. Sure enough, my legs started burning at about 16.5, so I did an extra half mile loop around the block. It felt great (in the way that pain feels great). Tomorrow, rest. Wednesday, nine or ten. After that, we'll see. MTA: 56 miles ahead of Crabby. Now that's a nice false sense of security.
                  Wanted to do an interval training, but the first 30 min were sooooo tough. I just switched to a progressive run. Felt good in the end. Managed 8.75K on the TM in 60 minutes flat. Not bad. Added on a 20min LB endurance w/o: some squats, lunges, deadlifts and plie squats. Made my legs feel better Wink You guys did good yesterday. Let's hear what you did today! Perfesser: I'm on the TM a lot too. I don't consider myself a whimp. I'm practical: everything at hand. And no potty break in the cold behind a tree Big grin

                    I fly.

                      I finally took a day off yesterday. I was going to streak, but alas, sanity got to me. Today was an easy 5 on the treadmill. I hope to get outside by this weekend.

                      Bring it on.

                        OK Perfesser, you got me there! Clowning around

                          I run for Fried Chicken!

                            Back from SF yesterday, didn't get a chance to run at all in SF. Went for a run on the UCLA track after we got home, first time running on a track for me. It was a really nice night, in the mid 60's and I thought it would be boring going around in circles but there were all these people out. Playing soccer, running, walking their dogs, running stairs.

                                I guess I didn't do it right Perfesser. Anyway - total wimp here and took an unplanned rest day Tues - wind chill at ~13...just don't have the gear to run in those conditions. No treadmill so I went to see The Gourds jam out a short set last night. However, I did recruit a lapsed runner to get back out there.
