      Got in 6 last night.  Is unseasonably hot here.  80s in April in Oregon = wtf?

       

      Cherie: Grats!  AG win always a good thing no matter the time.

       

      Haha!  Well thanks, Jeff, though I have to admit that I was really, really embarrassed telling my time on it.  But it was a really, really steep run! Big grin

       

      Woooohoooo@ in the 80s!  That's a good thing, right?

      I love sponge cake.

        Bin: I was at the race expo today and Halo was a vendor. They had a bunch of headbands in many colours! Smile


        Pura Vida

          Decided to change things up and went on a bike ride instead of a walk.  The last time I've been on a bike further than around the block, I was over 200 lbs.  I was defeated by the hill 1/2 mi from my house.  So it was nice to see that I could just kind of get on and ride today.  I did one of my LR routes, about 10.5 mi, not too bad for the first time out.

           

          Traci- Ugh, sorry about the dishwasher!  But now you know how to install one!

           

          Jimmy- Congratulations!  Looking forward to the report!

           

          Jack- Good luck tomorrow!

           

          D2- Congrats on the sub-20 and the AG award against some tough competition!

           

          kristin- Glad to hear you had a great run!

           

          Coralie- Good job getting out there and pushing yourself!

           

          D- Congrats on the race!  I haven't read any RRs yet today, but I'm looking forward to it!  BTW, I got some Daddy Yankee today and can't wait to run to it.

           

          Cherie- 2nd OA woman and AG win?  Super BA!  You are super tough in those hills!

           

          T-rod- Way to go getting the 5 year old to run more than 400 yards. Wink

           

          Mitch- Hope you are having a good Saturday!

           

          Jeff- I would love to be out running in this weather, what are you talking about?  I haven't scheduled any races until I can figure out when I can run again without pain.  I'm hoping that will be Monday, but even then who knows if I can get back to my regular mileage or what?  Good luck finding a route that doesn't make you a bandit!

          Upcoming: Rest!

            I ended up doing 5 miles just before a shower rolled in.

             

            Zel, do you have any idea what's wrong with your knee? You didn't have any problems before you race, did you? It seems weird that its bothering you this long after the race. Will you go to doctor?


            Pura Vida

              Mitch, I haven't run in almost a week, so I don't know if it is still an issue or not.  I do know that 0.1 last Sunday was miserable.  I am calling the doctor if my test run this coming Monday is unsuccessful, but at least I'll know that I gave rest a chance to work before I jumped into it.


              It never bothered me one bit until the half.  And it sort of snuck up on me during the half.  Hurt like hell the last couple miles, not sure when that started.  Kinda felt like it was going to buckle on a steep downhill around mile 10.  Maybe after that?

                Jack, that's some cool headband. Haa

                  Well that's just a bummer. It sounds like maybe the downhill event may be the culprit. I really hope it's nothing too serious and you are able to get back out there soon. Hang in there.

                      What's hurting? The quads?  Cause that's what usually fries while going downhill.  Hope yours is just soreness.

                        My knee.  Center bottom, below the kneecap, and only when I run.  Except for the day after the race, that day it hurt all day.

                          Thanks. And the 5 yr old isn't a penguin like his daddy. A couple weeks ago he ran an 8:59 mile. This includes stopping to put his shoe back on when he ran out of it Smile

                            Cherie - that's not a bad time for a trail race with a lot of uphill.  You did great.

                             

                            Coralie - at least you're out there running, even if you don't like the heat and you're just coming back from surgery.  Good for you.

                             

                            Zelanie - I hope the knee is better.
