      Good morning,


      Barely had time to skim last night before closing out the thread.  Hopefully I will have time to read yesterday's RRs in more detail over lunch today.  Plan on doing 10 or so after work.


        Cross fit plus 3 miles.




        Half: 1:48 (March 3rd, 2013)

        Full: 4:05:40 (March 17th, 2013)


        2013/2014 Goals:

        Sub-4:00 hour Marathon

        Sub- 125 pounds
        Sub- 1:45 hour half.

        mostly harmless

          It's raining and I have the sore throat from hell so I'll probably just take a RD today.  I have two races this weekend so a little extra rest won't hurt.


          I think it's just a cold, but I don't have any other symptoms.  It might be allergies but I usually get a lot of allergy symptoms when I'm suffering from that and I've been taking allergy meds for a few days with no change.


            Good morning, everyone!  No run for me, yet, today.  I took today off from work and have a doctor's appointment at 10am.  I'm hoping to do some shopping and then get my 7 mile recovery run in in the afternoon.  Hopefully, it'll stop raining by then.


            I'm still feeling very excited about yesterday.  Just being in the presence of so many fast women runners is making me want to train harder (and smarter).


            Scott, Allergies have been insane this year.  I've been sneezing constantly for about two weeks now.  The air has also been dry.  I'm hoping today's rain will wash all the pollen away.


            More personals later...

            My blog is JT Running DC.  It's awesome.


              Looked at the WOD (Workout of the Day):


              2 person partner workout:

              1 person runs 400 meters, while that person is running:

              10 power cleans

              15 squats

              20 sit ups

              then you run 400 meters


              Rinse, lather, repeat for 30 minutes...  I think I'll get at least 2-3 miles in.

              Full: 4:05:40 (March 17th, 2013)


              2013/2014 Goals:

              Sub-4:00 hour Marathon

              Sub- 125 pounds
              Sub- 1:45 hour half.


              Go figure

                Hey everybody.  Anyone ever just wake up smiling?  Ha.  I had the weirdest thing happen last night.  When I closed my eyes to go to sleep, my body felt like it was still moving forward like I was running my race.  It was the same thing as if you'd been on roller coasters all day or out on a boat.  Very odd.  In other news, I apparently got 30 seconds slower over night??? I still have a 2:56xx, but my time got changed by 30seconds.  I don't know why that would happen really.  At least it will make the next PR easier to get haha.  As for soreness and all, I'm not too bad.  I have one knee that's a little sore, and just some chaffed spots that are a little annoying.


                Marco..good luck on today's 10.  No rush on the RRs.


                Jodi...Have a nice run.  That's quite the partner workout.  Do you have a workout buddy?


                Scott...Definitely sounds like the time to focus on getting healthy.  Good luck figuring it out.


                Julia...Enjoy that day off!  I hope the rain cooperates.  We had about 24 hours of it yesterday.  I'm glad the race was a good experience for you.  I haven't started to think about what I want to do now.

                Trying to find some more hay to restock the barn

                  Kind of annoyed with myself.  I switched Sunday's 12 with Saturday's 5 because Sunday was supposed to have heavy rain all day.  So, I got the 12 done on Saturday, but then come Sunday, didn't think I would be able to get the 5 in before the rains hit.  As it turned out, I would have had plenty of time.  Angry


                  So, I'm juggling running schedules this week.  Have HMP intervals scheduled for tomorrow and 2wu+8MP+2cd = 12 miles scheduled for Thursday.  I'm also debating where to do the MP miles.  Should I run them on a track so that it is nice and flat and feels easy so I'll have a good feeling after my last MP run, or do them on the slightly more difficult greenway (where I did them last week) that left me questioning myself?  Sigh.....

                  Bad Ass

                    Morning!  I did 5 miles this morning, with more miles and weights tonight.  Just got to the office after my allergy shot.  Hope this one goes well.


                    Have a great day!

                      Good Morning,


                      I was too tired when I woke up to go for my run, so I'll have to slip out at lunch time.  I should be able to get in somewhere between 5 and 7 depending on how much time I have.


                      I'm looking forward to reading some race reports this afternoon.

                      Just B.S.

                        Swam 2 kilometers in the pool this morning.


                        SRD from running. After running 3 days in a row with a race Saturday and long run

                        yesterday hubby and I are in official taper mode!!! 13 more day to marathon #6 for

                        me and I think #15 or 16 for him.


                        Hope all you other racers from the weekend are recovering well.


                        Have a good day folks!


                          Hey all!  Sorry I missed posting over the weekend and giving thumbs up and good lucks to the racer's on Sunday.  I woke up to a very sick cat   (puke all over the house and bloody diarrhea).  Yuck.  Anyway, spent all morning cleaning up after him and trying to decide if I needed to take him to the emergency vet office or not.  Luckily he improved dramatically by the afternoon so the expensive trip was avoided.  I may still take him to the vet today if there is anymore ickiness to be found in his litter box though.


                          I have a very easy 3 miler scheduled today.  It's super windy outside so can't say I'm looking forward to running through that but oh well.  I must do what I must do.  I only have this week before marathon number 7!  Actually, looking at the calendar we have quite a few races happening on our board this weekend.  Awesome!


                          Oh, SIAR and Beth will appreciate this.  Our town is currently building a new pool and I just found out they are building a 10 lane Olympic sized lap pool.  How awesome is that?

                          Just B.S.

                            That is awesome for you!!! Our pool was built for the Canada Games in 1985 and is Olympic size

                            because of that. Lots of groups/teams come here from other cities specifically because of the pool size.


                            I like to go early morning while it is still at the full size before they put in the bulkhead and cut it down to

                            25 yard for classes, etc...


                            It's way more fun swimming in the long pool. You will love it! Hope it gets finished quickly.


                              Hey all, quick jump on for me (again).


                              I've decided to tweak the plans my coach has me doin. I just don't feel like I"m runnin enough. I used to run 40-50mpw and  now I'm only runnin about 20, if that. so on the days she has me doin cardio I'm gonna run instead. I really want to get my miles up.


                              so instead of cardio today I got in a nice 6 mile run.

                                6.9 done for me this afternoon.  This morning, I got the bad news I was waiting for about the job.  On the bright side, it gave me a great excuse to leave early so I could get in my run.
