Masters Running

    Teen boys sometimes live in a different reality.

    "Sometimes"?

     

    6.1 miles this morning in beautiful running weather.  Since I got sick and haven't run much, and because it was so nice out, I decided to push the pace today.  So 3.3 miles in the middle at Tempo pace.  Or at least what Tempo feels like - the pace was way slow.  Barely snuck under 8 m/m pace for one of those miles.  But it's a start.  Much work needs to be done.

      Finally got out and did my long run late this morning. 15.13 miles, 9:41 avg pace with very consistent splits, and I could've gone on forever. This slower running thing really is a good thing. Wink

        thanks for trying tammy.

        .

        I think most of the images I have nowadays with the goddesses are dreams anyway.

        However, I'm still proud of myself for resisting the temptation to join francecsa in her 200 mile three-day, race in May.  I only signed up for the 150 mile option.  YIKES!!!!

          10 miles on a packed snow covered country road ......was very beautiful.

           

          Tet - I'm worried I won't have enough miles in the bank to run a 100 K in Oct. and you just jump right into a 150 miler !  You inspire me!

           

          Holly - my son was exactly like that!  How old are your kids now?

           

          Maine -I'm sorry to hear of your loss...my Grandma lived to 99 and was also smart as a whip right til the end

           

          Roch - Thanks for the invite on Sunday...I'll do just about anything for a bagel! ....sorry about your friend,   (I don't wear Yaks)

          OM - Nice 15 miler!  slow and steady rocks!   You should run Ultras!!!

              I only signed up for the 150 mile option.  YIKES!!!!

             

            and I was contemplating to sign up for a 50 miler in the simmer and worried not having enough miles....

            wow!!! dear taper boy you are daring!!!!

             

            keep having fun in life!!!

             

            What a day! This afternoon was rather stressful, but funny. I ended the day with a twocat inspired 3 miles. I will let him explain.

            Day two of this new crud...the one that comes with fever, coughing, headaches...etc.

            Man, I have been back to this country for three weeks and I have been sick  all,  but 3 days since my return...

            maybe I don't belong in this country....

            ..I should go back home Smile

             

            Arf, your snow packed country road run sounds so alluring.

            OrangeMat, way to go with that awesome 15 miler!!!

              Nothing wrong with Nancy's picture-posting... Beautiful! Sorry you've been sick so much, I'd blame the stress of travel rather than being back in the U.S.   Smile

               

              I remember my Dad getting on me for not wearing a hat or boots to school (are you kidding? Go to school with hat hair??) but I steadfastly refused.

               

              hi Arf!

               

              Well, it was a busy day to finish a busy busy week, and I wanted to run 3-5 miles tonight but it was almost 7 by the time we got home and I was tired and hungry so bagged the run. Getting to be a bad habit, but I just didn't want to deal with it. But tomorrow is Saturday and the temps should be good for an outdoor run or two, so Yay for that!

                Tet - You inspire me!

                That’s not quite the response I expected <<<(crazy/nuts)>>> but then I didn’t expect the original ultragoddess whose 100K RR in 2007 incited me, with encouragement from mariposai at the boomer reunion Bellingham Bay Marathon that year, to run my first 100K on the spur-of-the-moment too later in the week.
                .
                posie - get well. Me too but it's probably better to get sick in the winter and not during the running seasons. As for me, after getting the flu shot in November, it knocked me out for a week in December and I’m finally getting over another bout in January.  Gotta be careful as 15 of the 17 flu deaths this year are in my AG.

                  Your slow and steady is my GA....Smile  Nice run!

                  Arf - my DS just turned 16 a couple days ago and DD is 10.

                   

                  Erika - in that we have similarly mentally-exhausting jobs, I don't know how you have energy to run after work EVER.  I get home from work just feeling like doing NOTHING....even planks are hard to talk myself into in the evening....

                  Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."


                  Finally!!

                    Tet--if you're using IE, there's a little sympbol in the address box that looks like a split page.  try clicking on that and see what happens.  it made my forum index page look normal again.  i don't know if something got changed there, but that same action didn't change anything on any of the thread pages I tried it on.

                    Richmond, here I come.................November 15th will be here quicker than I know.
