    What's everyone up to for the week?  Christmas is coming.  Are you ready?  Getting in few extra miles to make room for holiday feasting?

     

    I'm starting the week off with a bang and resting today.  Hoping to hit 40-45 miles this week.

    Run!  Just Run!

      I'm starting off w/ a bang as well, 0 miles (strength training today though)

       

       

      Hoping to get 35-40 miles in this week, the weather has moderated so no excuses Big grin

        Mondays are a SRD for me...This week will be a bit of a taper for me.  Its my B-day weekend coming up and I have Hasher Rick's NJ Trail Series 1/2 pencilled in for sunday (first trail race!).  Just some easy miles this week to rest up.

          Jamezilla - Go for it!  You will love trail racing!

           

          Got out for a little run this morning.  The snow cover over the path made it more of a slog.  It may be time to abandon my paths and trails in favor of my "urban trails" (roads) which get plowed.

          Run!  Just Run!

            What does SRD stand for? I figured out it's some sort of rest day. Some of the RWOL abbreviations are foreign to us. I'm sure in time I can figure them out but it would be easier if I just have you guys spell it out for me!

             

            I've not gotten on any real trails yet this week. I hit the local greenway this morning for a slow run. Between Disney last week and adding some miles to my Sunday "long" run I'm exhausted. Hopefully I'll hit the trails for a short run tomorrow.

             Goals: 1)Get my IT Band to cooperate 2) Run lots of trails. 3) Get my back to cooperate.

              The worst part is my thoughts are often...I have a S-R-D today (also abbreviated in my thoughts).

                  Finally got on the trail today. I had to take yesterday off and just do a walk due to continued exhaustion. I felt more rested today so I opted for a nice 5 mile trail run half way up one of my local mountains. Ahh... I feel better!

                    Did a 12K run last night in honor of 12-12-12.  It was fun except for the trail breaking I had to do through the snow.  My calves were screaming by the end.  Meteor shower is peaking tonight.  If you have clear skies where you are it should be pretty cool to watch.

                    Run!  Just Run!

                        pretty good week- 40 miles (well 39.7 Big grin) w/ a 13 miler on Saturday- ran w/ a buddy which always pushes the pace slightly- a good thing; easy 6 miler this AM along the Yellowstone

                         

                        I'll add a couple miles to my long run each of the next four weeks in prep for the Uwharrie run and I should be GTG Smile

                          Pretty good week for me. I got in 30+, including an 18 miler in the sagebrush/juniper covered foothills east of my town.

                            Jamezilla, nice meeting you today.  Thanks for stopping by to say hi.  Hope you had a great time and you come out to enjoy some more trails.

                              Finished the week with 39.6 miles total.  Had I known I would have run a little farther today.  C'est la vie.  It was nice to get out and run the last couple of days and get away from current events for a little bit.

                              Run!  Just Run!
