6.25 miles done in 58:00.
It snowed overnight so the footing was worse than yesterday. Still, I was able to settle in and I had that familiar isolated feeling, running in my own world all by my lonesome....until that big ass dog roared and scared the shit outta me!
Sounds like there are quite a few injuries/aches/pains out there. Not a good start to the year - yikes! Wishing everyone quick & easy healing.
I got in 6.73 this morning, in some warmer temps finally. I was going to stop at 6 but when I realized how close I was to 20 for the week, I added another lap around my block.
That gave me 20.3 for the week. Since this is my first full week back after 6 weeks post-surgery recovery & 2 weeks of the flu, I'm very happy with that.
6 miles in the books. I'm back on a plan. I was really flailing without one.
Upcoming races: Detroit Free Press HM 10/19
I race in SparkleSkirts
yeah I'm not a happy camper was anxious to get back to the normal running routine.
lilacjive I run with a similar view just from the Brooklyn side. Or as today seems we are both NOT running woth the same view. Hope your knee feels better soon!

8 miles completed, 9:05 overall pace including 2 miles at about 8:45 pace, a rough guess at my 15K goal pace. I was fairly winded at the end of those two miles, but I think I had at least another mile in me. Next week, I'll do 3 or 4 at that pace.
Weather report was revised downward. Never reached 50. It was 44 degrees with a fairly stiff NW wind. Fortunately, I wore my running pants under my shorts, and a long sleeve tech shirt, "A" shirt (wifebeater for you COPS fans), and a short sleeved tech shirt in Crimson tide red. I was comfortably chilly running into the wind, but the return trip of the out/back route was just right.

AprilRunner, the icy patch sucks. Here's to it being clear soon.
Luke, I'm happy that you're feeling better and had a great run.
Just B.S., you are tougher than I am. I can imagine how good the hot water felt after that run.
Rick, what a fun run! Except for the part with the dog.
Angela, great run.
c0derunner, what's the plan?
Tom, I hope that 9:05 will be my LR pace sometime in this lifetime. That is cool!

Hi Dailies! Today was our last longish run of the taper. 10 miles with 8 @ 9:55/mile and 2 @ GMP. The weather was pretty good here...35 degrees, but a bit windy by the end (15 mph)...I HATE wind! The run felt great though, with only minor twinges on the bigger hills. I guess I am as ready for this marathon as I will ever be....not happy with the forecast though (as Damaris said, 80 degrees is gonna suck!!), but nothing I can do about it. Great job on runs everyone and hope those with injuries heal quickly!
PRs: 5K 22:59, 10K 46:54,HM: 1:51:15
PRs: Marathon (2:49xx; '13) Half (1:25xx; '12) 10k (37:25; '14) 5mi (29:23; '13) 5k (17:27; '14)
That was my half marathon pace in November! It probably would have been 10 seconds slower today if not for those two miles at "15K" pace.
Great running everybody.
6-7 miles later.
c0derunner, what's the plan?
I'm calling this my offseason plan...Hudson level 1 HM plan for the Lansing HM in late april. It tops out at 38 mpw. My goal HM is in october (detroit), and I plan on switchin to the lvl 2 plan for that because I'll have more time. (50 mpw)
19.6 done at 8:40 pace, no IT band pain, and I finished the week with 80 miles. It was a good week.
B-Plus, enjoy the 6-7.
Cool, thanks, c0derunner. I'm thinking of registering for a marathon in October and a HM in November. I'll keep Hudson in mind.
RM2B, excellent! I'm happy that your IT band is following orders to cease and desist causing trouble.
Weights and push-ups are done. Abs will be done before bed. So far, it's been a great day. The 10.25 felt like a recovery run. I decreased hydration to every 2.0 miles and took only one gel, at 6.0 miles. I increased the weight I use for six of my eight leg exercises.
Running for TJ
Nice...Color me impressed.
