    Hey, LRB. I just finished reading all of the posts, lots of great runs and workouts! Well done.

      AprilRunner, great four-miler. I live two miles from my local Trader Joe's. It's...dangerousSmile

       

      SIAR, I do hill repeats on one of my two weekly recovery runs. I don't find that hills negate anything. Nice run today, BTW.

       

      Angela, what kind of class did you take?

       

      Baboon, nice workout. May your knee keep getting better.

       

      Damaris, I'm glad that this week's shot went well.

       

      Scott, enjoy the different machine.

       

      scrape, great job with the easy ten. I hope that your back feels better.

       

      Zelanie, I'm glad that you enjoyed your first run in the new shoes.

       

      wcrunner2, what's a GA run?

       

      Dave, I understand. Unless I'm on the TM, my body cannot slow to my recovery pace of 11:40.

       

      CrisRuns, great job with the 4.2.

       

      I'm on my way to the gym for 4.0 miles of hill repeats.

        I see some good winter running game point opportunities. "Feels like" -11F and it's snowing.  But DAY-UM! I don't think I can bring myself to do it. Talk about cold. I'm no Canadian......

         

        Edit: Scheduled to do 6 miles easy with some hill sprints. I'll update later with what I actually did.. and where I did them. Wink

        Upcoming races: Crim 10 Mile 8/24 (1:25:46, PR), Brooksie Way HM 9/29 (1:52:56, PR), Detroit Free Press HM 10/20 (2:51:06, PR)

          wcrunner2, what's a GA run?

           

          GA = General Aerobic

           

          At the effort I was running I wouldn't call it easy but it's still within the range that McMillan would give for easy runs. It wasn't fast enough or hard enough to qualify as a steady state or tempo run.

          2014 Goals: Run first trail ultra, first 100K, and see what I can do in a 24-Hour race

            Thank you, Basya! Have a good hill repeats workout!

            Better I Leave


              I was debating whether or not it is wise to run as I've got a tight hamstring and a twinge in my hip, but as long as it doesn't get worse, I'm gonna do some treadmill work tonight. I really wanna push myself, but I'm afraid to now cuz I've got my upcoming half in 13 days.

                SIAR - I don't know what the cut off point (mileage or time-wise) for a recovery run is, but if your point is recovery then I don't think you should feel much more fatigued at the end of the run compared to the start. Back when I was Pfitzing, I usually cut things off at about 5 miles or 45 minutes when he called for a recovery run. I just go out at a relaxing pace, try not to speed up too much, and enjoy a super easy run.

                  Rest day for me. We're flying home tomorrow. Back in the cold. :-( I'm so proud of my SO, he ran a great one mile, a very difficult first 10k and also his first HM, all in three days! Me? I won $100. Which is about the price of two pieces of chewing gum, here in Bermuda. Big grin

                      Sounds great. I hope for way more details. And lots of pictures of course.

                        I wasn't nearly as amused.

                         

                        Doofus, the flu shot doesn't cause back pain. Man up.

                          It says it can cause muscle aches. Those sure felt like mid-back muscle aches.

                            Typically only at the site it was injected, but some folks might feel some achiness I suppose. That usually happens with the live vaccine (nasal mist), not the injectable which is a killed virus.

                              Lily, enjoy your rest day and have a safe flight home. Congratulations to SO on three amazing races!

                               

                              4.0 miles at 5.2mph (11:31) done. The first four minutes were at a 1.0 incline. The next eighteen minutes were at a 7.0 incline. I finished the remainder of the 4.0 miles at a 1.0 incline.

                               

                              Now, abs, dinner, and sleep.

                                Well, it's gone now, so it had to be the vaccine.
