It's a SRD for me (all Friday's usually are) so just popped in to found no activity.
Hope everyone is out enjoying the trails. We have a long flat run planned for tomorrow, I got DW motivated when I reminded her it's only 5 months until our next 24 hr event.
QOTD: What day do you prefer to do your long run? In the winter I use Saturday, but during the spring and summer I do my long run on Tuesday since trails and logging roads are virtually empty on those days. As I get closer to a race, I'll switch to whatever day of the week the race will be held (Sat or Sun)
Marley and I had a nice chilly 7 mile trail run this morning.
QOTD: Since I only run for the joy of it and have no other real goals, I generally just run whatever distance I feel like on any given day.
Plan on 5 after work, then taking my son out for BBQ!
QOTD I work every weekend so I do my long on Tuesday when I'm off, it's nice to have the trails to myself.
SRD here too. Plan to do 20 tomorrow. I did the 100 on Dec 7th and then I'm doing the local marathon on Jan 19th, so I'm sort of in a recovery/ramp-up phase. I should be doing speedwork right about now, but screw that... my plan is to kind of do the marathon "low key" this year.
Driving...9 hours .....
Qotd: Sunday...then I chill Monday:
I need to sign up for a race..
Faster Than Your Couch!
Run for fun.
7 trail miles with a ton of vert and deep snow. It's a beautiful day in the Wasatch.
QOTD: Whenever the mood strikes.
10 early morning miles no headlight needed, the fresh snow just sucks light from nowhere, the only time I switched on the light was in a few rutted up places that the snow hasn't filled in.
QOTD: I like to go long early Saturday morning but lately with the extreme cold and the amount of snow going long is a real PITA.
Le professeur de trail
No running, no workout, just chillin' at home trying to clean up after Christmas.
Couch - that poor guy sat in his car that long? That stinks.
QOTD: Saturdays are really the only day it works for me but even those are tough nowadays.
The incarnation of peacefulness and patience
Ran a bit under 4 yesterday. Which seems to be the distance I'm comfortable at right now. Back to work for me today.
QOTD: I work weekends. So generally my long run(when I'm doing a long run) is on Wed or Thur. That being said, I don't work til 2. So if my long run is anything under 13 or so miles I can get it done on a work day if I want to, I just take the risk of being physically tired at a physically demanding job.
Have a good day!
Happy Friday on the short work week! I brought my running shoes to work with me and although I'm working late, I'll be running home in the dark. 5-ish miles, probably.
QOTD: Any day I can get out to do a long run is a good day to do a long run.
Another one of us that works weekends, but I usually have Fridays off. Which meant today was a long run. One of the great things about living in Flagstaff is that it takes a mere 30-45 minutes (depending on which TH you go to) to escape the cold pine-y winter of 7000 feet in exchange for the dry, warm desert/slickrock sunshine of Sedona at just below 4000 ft. Leave Flag in a down coat with a hot cup of joe and step out on the trails in 50 degrees and sunshine.
So that's what I did today. Ran in shorts (!) for nearly 21 miles of rocky backcountry barely-used-by-cowboys and cattle trails. Rough, rocky and, best of all, dusty instead of snowy.
photos, race reports and whatnot
Got down from Tahoe last night and am flying up to Seattle tonight for some more skiing there. This year is ending really well with skiing eight out of the last ten days.
QOTD: Usually I do my 3-hour long run on Thursday nights. With small kids it is easier to do it after work that ask a favor of my wife during the weekend.
