    There are some folks who are staying very consistant. Good job!

    I hear Zoom-Zoom's footsteps.

    Keep going everyone!

    Find the fun.


    Needs more cowbell!

      I keep trying to catch you, then every time I have a taper or recovery week you slip away.  Damn!  But Q has been slacking.  I am trying to "girl" him.  That would be funny and he would never hear the end of it. 


      Buncha machines we are...nice job, peeps!

        Nice job Zoom-zoom. You passed me, and with a 16 miler at that.
        Find the fun.

          My miles are really going to start to ramp-up now in preparation for my Oct. Marathon.  I am one tired puppy today, though.

            I've been fairly consistent as far as distance, but at the expense of doing any speed work. Also, I don't particularly like doing speed work. Or at least I don't like thinking about doing it. While I'm doing it, it's hard, but fun. So I should do it, but I don't.

             

            Today was my one-mile race. My goal at the beginning of the year was six minutes. My grown-up pr was 6:49, set last year. Today I did 6:51, which I'm pretty happy about since I did so little prep for it. There's always next year.

             

            MTA: Those bastards clocked me at 6:52.

              I hear ya...I'm putting in the mileage but not really into pushing the speedwork.  I'll back off in a few weeks and start adding more deliberate pace workouts.  I just enjoy running...long and far.

               

              Nice job on the race today!  I ran the last mile of a recent 10k at a 6:XX (can't remember but it was the only sub 7 mile I ran) but that's only because it was a CRAZY downhill and I had no choice, LOL.

                Zoom good luck on the Oct. marathon.

                 

                Well done Gig. I bet the speed work compliments the martial arts training and visa versa.

                 

                Lifesabeach talk about consistancy your log looks great and your about the hit 1500... way to go!
