    How's everyone doing!


    Ran 3.5 in the park today since I'm on vacation, Monday is usually a rest day, but like to hit 1,000 miles before the year ends.

      OK, 5 miles done with 2x 1 mile intervals at about 3K pace. My fastest training 5 mile run by a good deal (8:36 overall pace). I'm finally getting the pace right on the longer intervals. Now, I need to perfect this a couple ot times and then raise the stakes to 3x 1 mile.

        Afternoon Everyone,


        I'm sorry to hear the news about Suzilea. I haven't been around long so I never got the chance to know her or her story.  It's obvious she made a wonderful impression on all who knew her and she will be sorely missed.


        Unseasonably warm weather had me stripping off layers during my run today. I managed 5 Garminless miles. Tomorrow I'm hoping to get in a short run and then some core work.


        Team TJ

          3.55 miles done for Suzie.  Rest peacefully my friend.

          Running for TJ because he can't.

            Oh crap. I almost forgot about my streak. I still need to go run around the block later.

              Keep on streakin', Flippy!


              I'm not in the competition but I'm at 8 days myself. Smile

                I don't think anyone was suggesting that it was intentional.


                Oh, gosh, no: just a coincidence, no doubt.


                Sarah: That's so awesome!  I had no idea just what a hockey buff you are!  Chicks who play hockey rule!  I love that!!!  Thanks for sharing!  Way to knock out the 10!!  I'm sure you will be just fine w/your 13+!  You've got this!


                SIAR: That's interesting your point about seeing gains when you run consecutive days.  My mileage is only increasing a hair, but I'm running 7 days a week now and planning on it.  I hope that holds true for me too.  I'm glad you mentioned that! 


                Flippy: Kick butt on that streak!  You go, girl!!!


                  5 miles done.

                  Upcoming races: Detroit Free Press HM 10/19

                    RIP suzilea


                    SIAR & RMTB - Your discussion of running everyday is very timely, as I'm just starting to do that myself. I'll take a day off if I need to, but generally my base building plan is to run everyday until I start a Hudson "plan" at the end of January. I hope I will build some strength.


                    I ran 39.3 miles last week - I'll take it since I was away.

                    PM - 7.5 @ 8:05 w/ 6 strides


                      SRD for me.  I did about 1/2 hour of P90X with my hubby on our hardwood floor and my foot wouldn't stop cramping until I put on my running shoes.  I wonder what's up with that??

                        Got my mile in tonight. That makes day 13.

                          13 will get you 20.


                          Well, 13+7 will get you 20...


                          Good deal, Flippy.

                            Pink, that's the key to my running, I have to get out the door before my body wakes up and realizes what I'm doing. lol
