    I finished my miles.  My back is still sore but other than that and very tired legs, it went really well.  It was super windy (15mph) so I had deja vu feelings about my asthma/allergy attack but nothing happened and it went well.

      Sorry guys just time for a quick post, will get to personals tomorrow.  I decided to sleep in this morning (til 6:00 AM, yippee), because I worked late last night.  So, I had to do my 10-miler after work, which I hate!  I almost skipped it but DH basically told me to suck it up, thank goodness, and I got it done.  10 miles at 8:55/mile...was planning to do a GMP run, but got a little faster on the second half because I was freezing!!  Hope everyone had a good day!

          Just got back from my run... 2 miles, last taper day.  Training for my first 1/2 is officially over! Now just need to carbo load, hydrate, and rest before the big day.

           

          Just finished my last exam today as well. I am now half of an attorney as they say (3/6 semesters complete).

            Outstanding run!!  8 miles @ 7:22/mile, my fastest daily run ever.  I was aware of the pace, but didn't have to push to maintain it, legs felt strong so I let 'em go. 

             

            Hope everyone is having a great evening!

                LRB - There are many shorts in sale at RW today if you're still looking. Not a huge discount, but may be worth checking out if you haven't already.

                Thanks for the heads up!  I have zeroed in on two pair of their Pearl Izumi's that have modest discounts, but are well worth springing for. 

                 

                I'm gonna sleep on it then wake up and pick one.  I would buy both pair but do us runners honestly really ever splurge on ourselves? 

                 

                Contrary to popular myth; no, we don't.

                    Lol, or me. Kay - I hope you feel better. D2 - wicked awesome run! It's raining like a mofo, but I can't put off going out. Ok, I'm heading out for 11ish. I should be soaked as soon as I step outside.

                      Just got back from a nice 6.25 tempo run -- light breeze and setting sun.  

                      PRs:  5K (26:35); 10K (54:31); HM (1:58:53); FM (4:37:59)

                        10 miles on the work TM with just over 6 miles (48 minutes) at MP.  At about 45 minutes into the MP miles one of my co-workers pulled a run Jane run on the office PA system.  I flipped him off via the security camera (for if we happen to look at it 10 minutes after you had a heart attack).

                         Never run, if you want to never run, don't start because you'll never stop.

                          Thanks!  If the forecast had been for rain all day, I would have just sucked it up and ran this morning, but since it was supposed to clear up before lunch, I figured it wouldn't hurt to wait. Smile

                                Damaris: Great working getting your miles in.  I'm sorry to hear that your back is still bugging you, but it sounds like a strong run all in all.  Woot!

                                 

                                Amik: That was a great, very fast 10 miler today.  Nicely done!!!

                                15 miles in at 8:32 pace.  I felt great, so I just kept running and running and running and...
