    I'm impressed by how you seem to vault into those extra long runs, PerfesserR!  I have to incrementally build my distance, but you just go out and DO it! Amazing!

     

    Hey there, Runner67 - welcome back!

    Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.


    Imminent Catastrophe

      Yay, Trey is back!

      Happy, I've been trying to build my long runs while keeping my total weekly mileage from increasing too fast. We'll see how that works out.

          Happy, I've been trying to build my long runs while keeping my total weekly mileage from increasing too fast. We'll see how that works out.

           

          Going from 12 mile LR one week to 18 miles the next - to me that's an impossible leap. You've been doing this long enough though maybe your muscles have "memory" for doing those longer distances.

           

          Just this week I tried to jump into making Monday night an 8-miler instead of 6 (despite my plan to stick to my planBlush). Even that small change was a mistake for me. Although both Saturday and Monday were slightly faster than usual, I think it was the extra distance that did me in. I got up Tuesday with a painful "golf ball" in my left arch. I iced and did not run yesterday; seems ok today. I'll be running 6 tonight and see how that goes.

           

          MYA: Yay- tonight's run went just fine!

          Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

            Me, I have just been taking it easy doing a few 8 - 12 km runs a week.

            Trying to pick up my pace a bit before moving back into some longer runs.

            Bit distracted down this end of the world at the moment with the Rugby World Cup on, so a bit too much sitting on the couch drinking beer Smile

            Has been a real mild spring as well which has made for some good running when I have got out.  Also meant I have to spend a lot of the weekend mowing lawns and catching up on all those jobs around the house that I always seems to put off....

             

             

            Puke, sounds like an easygoing, well balanced routine.Big grin Hope your chosen team is winning!

            Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

              Wow, what a tough road (no pun intended) Smile Hope thats behind me now. So, looks like I missed the b-day party. Happy belated Russ. Hi Happy! Sup Jeff! Cleveland running is going to be quite different than in South Carolina weather. Haha. Stay tuned for what I can only imagine will be comical and "interesting" miles.

                Ran out at Boy Scout Beach today.  This is a GREAT trail!

                Run like you are on fire! 5K goal 24:00 or less (PR 24:34) 10K goal 50:00 or less (PR 52:45) HM goal 1:55:00 or less (PR 2:03:02) Marathon Goal...Less than my PR (PR 4:33:23)

                  Crabby - LOVE the photos of the doggies (yes I sneaked a peak at Rusty's too) and the Alaska scenery. What a beautiful part of the country you live in.

                   

                  So Trey - I just have to ask - what does "injury test dummy" refer to?? Is it safe to assume you are coming back to running after being injured? What happened to you? I often wondered why you dropped off the boards. Is it bad internet etiquette to ask? Hope not.

                    Hi Happy - and my dear old friends of the group, I did have a series of pains in various places that wouldn't go away, so I slowed down as a result of those. However, that wasn't it totally. And no - I don't mind telling you the cliff notes version (I appreciate your interest in me) - I took a new job within my company (again) which led to a move, additional work travel; my wife and I split up which really distracted me...all made for a perfect storm as a departure from running. Before I knew it, several months had passed and I hadn't run a single mile. I had to leave Hobbes and Daisy behind (my dogs, Hobbes pictured in my profile photo) was probably the most heart breaking of it all. But, I'm feeling emotionally strong again, my desire to run and run and run is back, settled into the new job much better, and come to grips with my lifestyle (being single again). It's really good talking to you all again! PS - 12 miles this week Smile
