TUESDAILIES = You Had Me at 'Let's Run' (Read 247 times)


Boss of the Mangoes

    I've been bundled up like a freaking Eskimo for weeks.

     

    8.2 for me this morning, with some fartleks thrown in there.  My attempt at reintroducing a little speedwork.

     

    Today is not a snow day.  This makes me sad.  Yesterday's snow day made it possible to get the huge project of cleaning/reorganizing/decluttering our school room/sewing room done, all in one day.  It was awesome.  I keep going and opening the door and peeking in, just to enjoy the wonderfulness of it.

     

    Off to go shower, make breakfast, and school my little hoodlums.  Then driving around for a couple of errands and swapping kids with their cousins for sleepovers.  DH is working late tonight so I will have the evening to myself, will probably work on some Christmas ornaments.  Should be a nice day.

     

    Have a good day, guys!  : )

        eddie, good job on getting your butt out there Smile

         

        Kay, good luck on your race!

         

        Damaris, I'm really glad I don't live in Florida.

         

        Babboon, congrats on the new gear! And yes, great story Smile

         

        StepbyStep, I hope you feel better! Sounds painful Sad

         

        Dto, sounds like a great run!

         

        Rest day for me today! Yippee! I shall be enjoying a wonderful glass of wine at my favorite restaurant. Woke up to my knee stiff again, rolled it for a minute or two and it felt better, until a few minutes later. I think I need to spend some quality time with the roller when I get home.

Kay, Hilary, and lilac_jive, enjoy your rest day. (lilac_jive, reading about the glas of wine made me a little jealous!) Baboon, how thoughtful of your wife!

              12-13 mile MLR today.

              happylily


                I said I'd run 6 recovery miles last night and I ended up sleeping on the couch after work. This active recovery thing just isn't for me. At my age, I need my days off. Joking Tonight is 10 with tempo, hopefully the rest yesterday will prove beneficial tonight!

                 

                Have a great day, everyone!

                  Eastern, Lehigh Valley area. I'll have to put that on my hit list, it's a little too close to my first marathon to do this year but it looks like a cool race!

                    Morning!

                     

                    5ish with my RP after work. We're going to run around my neighborhood and look at the Christmas lights.

                     

                    There's a 5k in January that I have to do. It's in Lancaster, PA (about an hour and a half from me) so it breaks my rule of "I won't drive further than it takes me to complete the race" but it benefits POLAR BEARS, you guys. My most favorite animal. It's appropriately called the Polar Bear 5k.

                      ...I'm trying to run without the green Superfeet inserts.  Since I've started running, I've always used those.  The wear pattern on my last pair of shoes though indicate too much arch support (looks like someone took a belt sander to the outside heel), so we'll see what ditching the inserts does.  The shoes felt fine yesterday...cushy new shoe goodness.

                      I had been wearing the green Superfeet since a bout with ITBS last winter, but have not been wearing them since my last run.

                       

                      Upon my return to running, my plan is to not wear them to see if the shoe itself will correct my pronation since that's what is designed for.

                       

                      Keep us posted.

                        When I first started running, I was overpronating and Shoe Store Girl said green Superfeet in a stability shoe would be good for me.  That worked for the first year, but I went back and got fitted again, at which point they told me I can move to a neutral shoe.  I did that but kept using the Superfeet.  Now it appears the Superfeet are overcorrecting my overpronation and the lighter, less bulky shoe I am using now shows that in the wear pattern.  The stability shoes can hide that.

                          running is bad for you

                            It is indeed Tuesday - because that's what my underwear says on it.

                             

                            I think I'm the most boring person in the dailies.  Nothing new to report.  

                             

                            Hope all your runs go swimmingly today!
