      Hi Dailies...

       

      I ran a 1:40:33 on a killer course! Good for a four minute PR!  Now it's shower and lunch time and the drive home.  I might do a RR later.

        Are you training for a race or do you just knock out those huge miles cuz you like long runs?  Seriously impressive.

         

        April - Dammit.  I'm sorry, I know how it feels.   Like LRB, just let it sit with you for a bit.   From your training, you definitely had it in you, so I agree it sounds like you were getting sick or something.

          Woot woot! Congrats!

           

          Marjorie I read that as 2.15, then thought that Oski was being a smartass. Then I looked back. Nice run Smile

            Funny, LJ - because my first thought was "2.15 is so much shorter than MarjorieAnn's usual runs" and then I paid better attention. LOL

              I'm so behind on the forum... so many RRs to read! Congrats weekend racers. I just got back from Connecticut from the wedding. Had a good time. We were having a few drinks at the hotel bar after they reception had ended, and ran into Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters and Nirvana. Awesome!

                One thing I forgot to mention in my non-RR was that at 11.5 some guys were handing out beer in cups. I said "I'm having a shitty race - I could use some of that." It was the best damn beer I've ever tasted.

                  I have a marathon June 8th. But really I like to run long. I am not fast and I never will be. That is okay.  I don't follow a training plan. I just do what I feel like doing.

                    I'm DNSing my race today. I had to make this decision yesterday morning because the race requires an overnighter. I was so sick yesterday I can't even describe it. Today will be all about trying to get food in my body to get some energy back. I don't know if I'll run today ... Probably not.

                     

                    Good luck racers!

                     

                    Really sorry to hear the B-Plus. Sounds like a wise decision. I know you will be back

                    stronger than ever for your next race.

                    Just B.S.


                      I had a bad race. Didn't even PR - was 6 minutes over. I am so disappointed.

                       

                      Sorry to hear that April.

                       

                      One thing I have learned in my 10 years of racing is that not every race can be a PR

                      and some will just be plain sucky. BUT when you do PR at again at the distance it

                      will be even more sweet. It will happen for you and you will enjoy it even more because

                      of the prior disappointment.

                        This.

                         

                        Don't think of DNSing a race because you had a tough one. Get back on the horse.

                         

                         

                        Sad I think the heat may have triggered something for you, you looked great when I saw you. I'll bet you a beer that if you don't sign up for another half, you'll get a half PR at Via while running the full.

                          Now, I really wonder WTFH happened this morning. At the gym, I did weights, as I'd planned. I have to be at work early Tuesday morning, so I also did forty-five minutes on the ArcTrainer, so that I won't have to return home too late. Everything felt normal. I'll still take a few S!Caps and gels with me on my long runs, starting next Sunday.

                           

                          Rick, how did you adjust, regarding hunger issues? BTW, I didn't feel hungry at all this morning.

                           

                          (((((((AprilRunner))))))) I'd have taken the beer, too, consoling myself with the thought that, at the very least, it has B vitamins.

                           

                          Marjorie, terrific 21.5.

                           

                          Jack, congratulations on your PR!!!

                            Back from my run.  18.3 miles at 10:47 pace, with 938 feet of elevation gain.  That's about what the elev. gain is for the SF marathon, so it's good to know what it feels like.  Hilly, that's what it feels like.  Resting and baking some bread now before DH and I head out for drinks and dinner at Chilean restaurant.

                             

                            Good news on the raccoon front.  I think all my dogs yipping and yapping forced the raccoon to look for quieter quarters.  At least the area seems clear for now.

                             

                            April -- I'm so sorry about your race.   Underperforming on a goal race is a lousy feeling -- there's no way around it.   But I truly believe that every bad race makes you stronger -- mentally, emotionally and physically.   Get a good nights sleep, take away any and all lessons for why it didn't go as you'd hoped, and then get back out there.   When you get that PR, it will be all the sweeter.

                              I cannot wait until we FE!

                                Damaris -- I'm very excited about SF as well.   Have you been there before?   It's a beautiful city.
