          Sloooow.

            Afternoon, all. Pretty sure it's a rest day for me. My 18 mile week only has me running 5 days (woohoo) and I'm pretty wiped out from the last few days. I still need to make chicken noodle soup for dinner, it's just turning into one of those days!

              Woot!  Just graduated from PT today.  They sent me home with a T-shirt that says "active lifestyle restored".  Perfect!  Plus some silver bands so I can continue the torture exercises at home.

               

              Wonderful!  I'm really happy for you, Zelanie!

                I might need some of that action after you take down AWood Smile

                 

                I might be doing a half in October. But it isn't a flat one. Not a good one to try to PR.

                  Zelanie - congratulations on graduating from PT.  I figured after your steep trail run and no pain that you were close to healed.  I'm glad to see it.

                   

                  Tomas - all of the HMs around here are hilly.  There are three within an hour's drive of my house:  one in September, one in March, and one in April.  My first will have to be a PR, since it will be the first.  The second might be a PR, because it's a little easier than the one I'm doing first.  The third one - well, I'll be experienced by then, so who knows what I'll do, though I've heard it's pretty bad.  After that, I might have to do a flatter race, just to see what it's like.  Of course, because they're harder, the local races tend to be very small.  A lot of people I've talked to won't do the local HMs because they're too hilly - but since I'm not out to win, I figure why not enjoy the challenge?

                      My area is extremely flat. So hills are not good for

                      me, but they are kinda fun. I have only run 2 HM's. The hilly one on the bridges and a trail one. The trail one I was almost 30 minutes faster on.
