    At least my iPod Shuffle was calling up some good songs this morning - I even ran an extra half-mile in order to keep cranking with a fast one.

     

    Those runs are the best!

     

    D, somehow you and the letters TM just seem so bizarre.  Hopefully it replaces some of them runs you have in the summer down there.

     

    Tom, I am sure I would annoy the heck out of you.  lol

     

    No worries Scotty, I look like a Christmas tree with all the reflective shit I have on.

     

    Hello everyone else!

    MRT: This too shall pass I made it!

      Morning!

       

      Cutback week in full effect. MLR of 5 miles for me today, completed at an Easy pace on the TM. We had about three 1/2 hr snow storms yesterday. They were quite peculiar. There's lots of sun planned for today, so by about noon all of the snow should be gone.

       

      I worked half days Friday and Monday and now that's all I want to do. Smile Have a great day everyone.

        D - I see you're scheduled to run the RnR Country Music Half. Is that the one in Nashville? You'll be about 2 hours away from me if it is!

         

        It is!  You should register.

          I'm not  yet healthy enough for a half. I know that there's a 5k also, but the price tag is a little steep.

           

          If I can nurse my body back in shape, I might be ready for another half this fall.

            I have that feeling when I take consecutive Tuesday's off in February/March for speed wotk.  It is so cool!

            Pura Vida

              Morning!  Pfitz does not believe in the sanctity of Mondays, that's for sure.  I'm following his HM plan, which doesn't even specify what days you need to run certain workouts on, but since Wednesdays have become my speed days, Monday often ends up being the day for my MLR, like it was yesterday.  But it's down to only 9 miles this week!

               

              Today I just have 3-4 easy planned.

              PRs: 5K: 25:35 / 10K: 53:03 / 10mi: 1:26:15 / HM: 1:55:02 / FM: 4:50:35

              Upcoming: Rest!

                Speed work for me, except I am going to try it on one of my public routes which should be interesting.

                 

                Actually with getting a late start and no pre-run dynamic stretching I really cannot complain.  I averaged 6:45 for the 3 mile steady state tempo portion which requires a bit of luck when running on sidewalks during the morning rush and thankfully today I had a bit.

                 

                It was a tad slower than my target pace but all things considered I am happy with the run.

                 

                7.5 miles total and now the plan is to eat shit up for the remainder of the week!

                  I'm feeling pretty decent, so I think I will hop on the TM later today for 2 or 3 recovery miles and see how everything feels.

                   

                  Our big excitement here on the farm is that one of our hens went well and truly broody this week.  We realized she had been sitting on the same nest box non-stop for 24 hours, so we moved her in to separate area of the coop in a dog kennel so the other chickens would not bother her and her eggs.  The only problem is that she doesn't seem to realize she is supposed to leave the nest occasionally to eat and drink.  This morning I had to forcibly take her out of her nest and put her next to the food and water.  After a second, she awoke from her trance-like state and began eating and drinking like crazy.   But, she returned right back to the nest as soon as she was done.  Fingers crossed we get Easter chicks!

                   

                  Damaris -- I see you signed up for the Surfer's Path marathon.  Lucky you!  I so wanted to sign up for that this year, but had a conflict in my schedule.   It looks like a beautiful course and the weather should be great.

                  PRs:  5K (26:35); 10K (53:55); HM (1:58:53); FM (4:37:59)

                  Brrr

                    That's pretty awesome to be able to run 20 min. 5k's as your Tempo run (or pretty close to it). Smile I hope to be there one day! DW and I were talking about how I'm going to have to scale back mileage after DD#2 is born. It might be a good time to concentrate on the 5k distance.

                      Yes, and I'm very excited!  Weather is one thing I am looking for.  Hope it's not too hilly.

                        Afternoon...

                         

                        3.5 miles in the books, negative splits, 10:02, 9:45, and 9:24 for miles 1, 2, and 3. 9:24 is my fastest mile since I stopped running in November for my knee. And it's only about 30 seconds slower than my last half. Smile

                         

                        What's more important is that it's faster than the pace at which I ran my 5K a few weeks ago. It's coming back, slowly but surely.

                          I have some cousins that live in Nashville and whenever I visit them and go for a run, I get a LOT of hillwork.

                           

                          Good luck, Damaris!

                            I ws referring to Santa Cruz, CA, BUT THANKS FOR MAKING ME FREAK OUT ABOUT NEXT MONTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                             

                            Coming from PR, hilly is San Francisco hilly.  The rest is nothing.  But fortunately, I am only pacing hubby at Nashville.  Santa Cruz will be for a PR.  That better be flat.
