    Goooood Morning,

     

    New month, new week, let's make it a good one

     

    Went out with both dogs for an easy 3 kilometer run. NICE! No walkbreaks, other than for take off/put on leash, a car and feeding a tidbit for good behaviour (I have to bend down to give it to Spike)  Feeling really good. I'll start increasing my distance as of tomorrow.

      That's wonderful, Dutchie; you're off to a great start!

       

      Sorry you’re having to baby your foot, PerfesserR. Such a frustrating situation.

      Jeff: what everyone else said – you’re fast!! Good job in Saturday’s 10K.

      Happy Birthday, Kelly! What a great present - the Garmin; you’ll have lots of fun with that new toy.

       

      Hope everyone has a great week ahead and good runs

      Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.


      Just a dude.

        Well, good day today...


        Ran my race... 1500... ended up with a first place finish and a 5:05 time... faster than I expected...


        Ran 6 this evening on top just nice and easy...


        Have a great week everyone!

        Getting back in shape... Just need it to be a skinnier shape... 

          Kelly: First place is a great birthday present! I guess I'm going to do some speed work this summer...

            Trey...sorry you will not be in SF but just as well because I did not want to have to impress anyone with my 5 hour finsh (at this point I hope I even finish)

                Kelly: congrats on your 1st place. Wonderful achievement.

                Yesterday, I added 30 min of UB to my short run and 10 min of abs.

                 

                Very nice 5.5K easy run this morning with the dogs. Spike was on his best behaviour. For a dachshund The run went very well. Probably because I had 4xbreaks for doggie business, 2xbreaks for taking the dogs off/put them on leash, 2xbreaks for cars passing and 2xbreaks waiting for Spike to catch up 

                Added on a 30min boxing w/o plus abs.

                   Me: 3 easy miles this morning in a light rain. Tomorrow -  my first weights workout in a long time. Getting back on track and logging my meals again. I'm pre-training for the trainer.

                      I survived my last day with my old boss (Mon) and the first day with my new boss (Tue). Gosh, it was so hectic. I felt so exhausted last night. Slept in this morning. Had no run planned, just strength training. Can do that after work... yeah right

                      Another busy day ahead of me.

                        Blah...


                        My knee that I have been sorta ignoring for a week is finally not letting itself be ignored... I've been favoring it slightly and now my back hurts...


                        Only ran 3 tonite and iced a ton.  Gotta get this thing under control...


                        Intervals planned for tomorrow night... Weird schedule this week makes it my only real good quality day this week... I am hoping I am up for it...


                        Really glad to see you coming back Dutchie... keep at it...


                        Have a great rest of the week all!

                        Imminent Catastrophe

                          30 minutes on the elliptical today.

                          I made an appointment with the Ortho for next Monday to look at my foot but I'm pretty sure that it's a metatarsal stress fracture. 




                          So much for my Summer/Fall plan.

                            Well BOO!! We'll keep all fingers and paws crossed in hopes it's not a fracture, PerfesserR.

                             

                            And Kelly, maybe you just need to ease up a little this week - no speedwork - give your body a chance to regroup.

                            You're 40 now - this is what happens

                            Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.


                            Just a dude.

                              Well... I started aggressively icing my knees, and things are getting better quickly.


                              Did a strong interval workout today... 6x600s with a 200 jog.  Went ok...  I've been using McMillian's site to get some idea of how fast to run intervals.  I can do the 400s and the 800s fine, but for some reason the 600s kick my butt... I can't tell if I am mentally wimping out, or if there is some hole in my training, or what... 

                              Oh well... I can tell I am still definitely improving...


                              Blah Perfesser... I hope things get right quick...

                                 Bwahahaha, that had me laughing out loud But I think you're right. Kelly maybe you should just take it real easy this week. Nothing bad is gonna happen if you do.

                                Perfesser: so sorry. Hope it's NOT a stress fracture. Maybe your shoe is tied too tightly (crossing my fingers).

                                HappyFeat: glad to be running again with you guys too

                                Did I say my new boss used to run marathons? Now he sticks to halfs. And he's so proud he runs at 7AM. I didn't tell him I get up way earlier than that and run at 6AM

                                 

                                This morning was a nice 8.8K loop with Spooky. I was a bit slower than usual, but given I'm coming of a lay off, I think I did pretty well. I had two walk breaks to let my HR go down. Gorgeous morning! Not sure how long my long run should be this Sunday. Would 13K be doable? I think I should pick a route that'll give me the opportunity to lengthen or shorten my run.
