    Beth: Holy freaking snow!!!  I'm in Wisconsin, but we don't have anywhere near that much.  Crazy town!

     

    I bailed on my run.  1.5 painful miles.  Resuming rolling/icing, blah,blah, blah, blah.

     

    Hang in there, I know it sucks.  This too shall pass. blah blah blah  Smile

      Heidi, I think you need to shut it down and go back to the doctor.  If the PT is pinpointing to the wrong issue, maybe a second opinion is worth it?  For that kind of pain I would go to the orthopedist first.

       

      I ended up not running.  My neighbor's cat escaped and we were looking for her for hours.  Still has not been found.  Of all the days....

        Didn't get the run done. 3.5 hours of shoveling and then walking the dog 2 miles will have to do for

        today. Plus the temps maxed out at 2F (with chill) with 25mp/hr gusts so it was pretty darn cold anyway.

         

         

        Just put it down as cross training.

         

        RMTB - I'm so sorry that you're struggling so much and I hope it works itself out very soon. I know how frustrated you must feel.

         

        AM - 3.4  @ 9:03

        PM - 7.6 @ 8:06 w/ 6 strides

         

        Month - 325.2 (57 mile PR)

        Year - 1198.1 (not bad, considering I didn't start until May)

         

        Have fun and stay safe tonight everyone.

          All Right!  Another race under my belt. 4.36 miles, 36:40 garmin time. 36:45 gun time. Only about 4 minutes slower than the third in age group runner, but over 10 minutes shorter time than last year's run (which was about 1/4 mile longer). 2 moderate hills on this run, but since it was 2 laps, it was essentially 4 hills. I'm pretty happy with my results.

              I'm off to do ab work and push-ups before preparing to go out tonight. Have a happy and safe NYE and NYD, everyone!

                Good run Tom.  8:25 pace for 4.36 miles is some mighty fine truckin'.

                  Thanks, Luke, Basya, LRB!

                   

                  Looking at my splits, it appears that I went out a little fast, given that my first mile was my fastest. I dropped 30 seconds the second mile and settled into my pace from there. I thought that I had gained enough fitness that I could achieve my most recent 5K pace (and I almost did) but I overdid it at the beginning. Fortunately, I adjusted my pace a bit and maintained for the remainder of the race. I only wish I had a bit more kick capability at the end.

                    ...I dropped 30 seconds the second mile and settled into my pace from there...

                    Just gotta "settle in" a little sooner, and you'll be fine.

                      I attacked the opening hill a bit too vigorously, actually! Then tried to make up for it over the rest of the first mile.

                       

                      Side note - someone's shooting off something big around here. Fireworks! Popular this time of year.

                      Will run for scenery.

                        Any of you guys staying up until midnight? Really?

                         

                        Didn't think so.  G'night.  Happy 2013.
