    WHAT UP DAILIES!?

     

    So I'm still on a pretty big high from yesterday.  I'm coming off the greatest day of skiing I've ever had, by a long shot... and that goes back a ways (about 1980). I'm now sitting here in the airport waiting to head back home. I managed to stay injury free. My brother in law didn't though. On the last day he suffered a 3rd degree shoulder separation. Sucks!

     

    Check out the video to see what I experienced yesterday all day long.  Oh, and holy DOMS.. I be suffering!

      Hi!  Just came back here to show myself there are some sane people in RA.

       

      But carry on.

        Those doing the Frederick Half should sign up for the Baltimore Half in October and get the Maryland Double medal!

         

         

         

        ...SPARKLES RULE!!!

        I ran the double last year.  If you want the extra spiffy medal in the center, you have to register for Baltimore way early.

          I wish this could only happen on the internet, but sadly my co worker would fit in the WTF category.

                I was talking about us and then said it also happens in real life.  Yes, the one with the baby.

                      SIAR, I'm glad that you listened to your body an were able to complete the seven miles.

                       

                      Damaris, what happened?

                      c0derunner, that sounds amazing! I hope that BIL heals quickly.

                       

                      I did push-ups during my break. I'll do an work at some point before bed.

                      Running for TJ

                        I got in 4.2 miles this morning.  With that run I'm at 108% of my monthly goal.  My plan is at least 4 more Thursday morning.  Happy running month for me.

                        Having fun running.  No pace goals, no race goals, no schedule, just doing it.

                          Supp crew, long day for me.  Time to get down with a PB & J with bananas sandwich.  Check back later...

                            I just had a WTH moment. I ran seventy-one, not seventy-two minutes, this morning. My start and end times didn't come out to seventy-two minutes:/ I also took a look at my tapering schedule; I can see myself going insane.

                               

                               

                              I worked up pretty slowly. I started with 1x8 sec hill sprint in November. Each week I added one or two more, until I got to 10x8. Now it's up to 10x10sec, and next week will start the hill intervals. I've tolerated them really well so far. I think some of that is probably from starting slowly.

                               

                              Thanks for the info! I also started with 1 and added 1-2 each week. But it still seems too aggressive for me. Maybe I have a weakness I need to address, or maybe I just need to hold at the same level for an extra week or so.

                               

                              I'm not sure what's wrong with me, but I'm taking another day off. I hope this doesn't turn into a 3 month break ...

                                I did 3.13 tonight on the treadmill in 36:00.

                                 

                                Dumb Question: I am doing the Higdon 5k intermediate plan just so I can have some structure. And i have a 5 k in march. Up until now I was doing c210K and it was really to many miles a week for me right now. I did 20+ miles a week for four weeks and ending up taking a couple weeks off due to knee pain.

                                 

                                doing the 5x400 tonight. I warmed up with an easy mile then started the interval. with the interval is it 10 400 meters ....one walk/one at mile pace? Five times?

                                 

                                5 x400

                                Interval Training: To improve speed, you sometimes need to train at a pace faster than your race pace for the 5-K, about the pace you would run in a 1500 meter or mile race. Run 400 meters hard, then recover by jogging and/or walking 400 meters. Before starting this workout, warm-up by jogging a mile or two, stretching, and doing a few sprints of 100 meters. Cool down afterwards with a short jog.

                                 

                                Thanks
