    No need to get excited. Just getting us started. No run this morning, but did a whole pile of ironing instead Big grin

      Dutchie, ironing burns a lot of calories! More than I burned today, anyway! Big grin

        5 miles this morning. Crazy warm. Its september and this is the warmest 5:30 am run I have had all summer and it was pitch black. It wasnt HOT, 67, but still to have 67 at 5:30 am is weird around here, especially after freezing my tookas off last week. I am ready for fall to settle in. This is too hot for september, makes me fear a hot marathon.

          Ennay, we had your weather Saturday - ychh! Today was much better - 51 and low humidity. I ran 6.7 miles and it felt good. The weather is never predictable here, so the HM in 13 days will be interesting. We got almost 6 inches of rain overnight from Hannah.


          ...---...

            Yeah, Dutchie burned more ironing than I did today too. Planned rest from running. Only crappy work stuff today.

              I am tired from a long race this weekend (13.3 miles at1:30 in the morning). But I slogged through 8 today with some very perky friends. Hottub time and a break tomorrow!
              Run like you are on fire! 5K goal 24:00 or less (PR 24:34) 10K goal 50:00 or less (PR 52:45) HM goal 1:55:00 or less (PR 2:03:02) Marathon Goal...Less than my PR (PR 4:33:23)


              I run for Fried Chicken!

                Day 10 of my running streak. I'm a little surprised I'm not sore or tired. If anything, it's kinda the opposite, been waking up earlier than usual and energy is great. I've ran 57 miles in the last 10 days, pretty happy with that.

                  Tried to do a treadmill workout today, but the right leg is still hurting and I didn't even get a mile. I'm afraid that it might be something long-lasting. Looks like the Mount Desert Island is probably not going to happen this year. I'll rest some more and see how it goes.

                        Yep - sorry to hear that Russ. Do you think the Wyoming race down hill finish did it? Easy 7.7 miles this evening with a friend visiting from Bristol, UK. He did well in the heat and finished with a smile on his face despite obvious discomfort.

                          Thanks everyone. Trey-the downhill might have been a factor, it sure felt harsh at the time, I could feel the shock in my legs. But it was (mostly) dirt road and the quads and everything else recovered pretty quickly, so who knows. Anyway it might be OK after a few more days rest. It's hard to tell whether it's soft-tissue (not so bad) or bone (very bad). The worst part is losing Mount Desert Island, it's a really beautiful course. Buh.

                            That's a total bummer...I can't run the down hills much without a ton of pain the next week. Ran 3 miles of interval/hill sprints today with my over-the-top perky running buddy. Added a couple of easy miles and think I'll rest tomorrow before my ...yikes...20 miler.
