Mostly Harmless

    Now that was fun! I decided that since the sun was out and it was almost 40 degrees I would wear shorts and run fast.  I did a 1 mile warm-up and then did 5 miles at my fast pace. When I hit the 6 mile mark I decided to see how fast I could run the last two.  Splits:

     

    9:21              
    8:44              
    8:34              
    8:27              
    8:26              
    8:21              
    7:33              
    7:29

     

    CC - It sounds like you are primed and ready to run this weekend! I'm betting SIAR that you'll kill that PR.  *He says you can't do it but I have full confidence in you!

     

    Jen - I'm getting sleepy just thinking about your schedule.  I don't know how you folks do it.  I just can't function for long periods without sleep.  Great job getting your run in this morning and I'm glad everyone made it back uninjured.

     

    RVD - I'm really glad that your hamstring is cooperating.  You're on the home stretch now!

     

    Jodi - Good work! I hope the weather holds!

     

    Julia - Not a whole lot of wind up here and the sun made me feel warm.

     

     

    * - OK, so he didn't really say that but a little manufactured drama is always fun. Clown

      Hi everyone!

       

      I ran 5 this morning, 3 fairly hilly at close to MP with BoMF, slow jogged the other 2 before and after.

       

      Back later for personals, hope everyone's week is off to a great start.

        Go figure

          Did 9.56 miles, with 10x10 sec hill sprints at the end, in glorious sunshine! Sadly, the sun won't last.

           

          Scott...that's a killer run! Seeing that, I'm definitely on board with you going out at 3:55 and then dialing it up. See how I'm being nice to you, even when you don't deserve it? Lol

           

          I'll catch the rest of you tonight.

                I agree with Jodi.  Our high today is 86F.  I've changed clothes up to three times during 20 milers.  Humidity, sun and running is never a good combination for clothes.

                  I didn't even run outside for most of the run!  It was inside.  But no more intervals Rachel, I'm done Smile.  Taper madness hath begun.

                      I don't change clothes. they're just gonna get sweaty, stinky and nasty anyways. I'm usually soaked by mile 3 and to change that many times required too much time for me

                        It's not that.  When it's 76 dewpoint the clothes get too wet and the pants start falling.  So I have to change.  our humidity is just too bad.  People say 101% humidity does not exist but I beg to differ.

                          I've stopped to change socks and shoes before when i was running muddy trails. Other than that, I just go with it.

                            I don't do it often, but I always prepare the sets to change if necessary.  It only takes me 2 minutes and boy am I ever grateful I did it.

                              Hi Julia, Jodi, Docket, JenRosie, Scott, CC, SIAR, RVDowning, NTSwift--

                               

                              It has been a rough couple of weeks at work, which has not been good for my running or my participation in this forum (those two things always seem to go hand-in-hand).  It also doesn't help the my TM died...for good this time.  But I now have a streak of 2 days going!  Hopefully, I can keep that up.

                               

                              How has everyone else been?  I know that many of you had some big races in the last couple of weeks.  I look forward to going back and looking for some race reports.

                                Played 9 holes of golf as the sun went down...headed to play basketball at the church here in a bit. I'm praying that I don't get injured.

                                 

                                Hill...great to see you back again. I hope things calm down for you and the weather let's you get some more miles in without the TM being available.
