Dutchie I go running in the early morning, before my brain figures out what I'm up to.

Congrats on the Marathon Russ!
We are currently on vacation through PA and OH. I'm still trying to build up my long runs for my HM in 3 weeks so I did a 10 miler on Sunday. I was about 2 miles in when the earth suddenly started rising in front of me. I think it was the work of some kind of demon, I have seldom seen such works of trickery. This phenomenon, which I can only compare to when you add incline to a treadmill, went on at a rather steep angle for almost a mile. Then the earth cast me down just as abruptly. It was very confusing!

Just a dude.
As for the posts and stuff... I have had absolutely no problems... I use Chrome on XP or Vista...
I've been chugging away with 70+ mile weeks... Turned an ankle a bit last Sunday but didn't miss any time with it... Just had to slow down a day or two...

Are you sure you aren't SuperMan, Kelly?? You have remarkable powers of regeneration, mus' say.
Can I whine a bit and say I just had the worst run in quite a while? My own fault - haven't been following my own "rehab program" religously this past week. I'll take tomorrow as a Rest Day and see how Monday goes. I'd planned to give 12 miles a go. We'll see what happens.
MTA: correction - Sunday is when I'll try to run 12, not Monday.
Go as long as you can, and then take another more step.
.. Are you sure you aren't SuperMan, Kelly?? You have remarkable powers of regeneration, mus' say.
I am quite sure that I am NOT SuperMan. I've been ramping up the mileage consistently, trying to build up a decent base. I'm convinced that it will help me run faster... I have a good chance of cracking 80 miles this week for the first time. That would probably be my 2nd highest ever.
But I'm stiff and sore a lot. I have days where I don't want to go run. I'm trying to find out how to run faster, not just farther, and it has been somewhat eluding me. I'm struggling to get rid of these last 10 lbs. I have extremely aggressive goals and I'm trying to do what it takes to achieve them. I try to be patient, consistent, smart, and aggressive all at the same time.
I'm plugging away at it... Trying to keep a positive attitude and put in the work necessary. I'm trusting that my training is right. Hopefully it all pays off...
I'll have to run a race or a time trial somewhere to see how it's all going...
