Barking Mad To Run

    Basya, you should run outside in case you have to keep blowing your nose..I bet the gym staff frowns on 'snot rockets' being shot inside the gym. 

     

    Coffeee...BLECH!    Hope it helps you though, Rick.

     

    Good luck with the windy, rainy miles Step.  It's windy and rainy here this morning, but not really cold, 62 degrees.  On the drive to work I saw two dedicated power walkers - they were moving at about my running pace, lol -  out in this stuff doing their thing, good for them!   This miserable weather won't last long though, we will be clearing soon and by this afternoon...very sunny!  That will be good because San Antonio folks are REALLY lousy drivers in bad weather.  Right now we have two ongoing major accidents and two of our main thoroughfares for commuting are going to be closed down for at least 2 hours.  I am SO glad I left early this morning and took the back roads to work.

     

    Congrats on the 7 miles, D2.  Sorry about not warming up though.  Come visit San Antonio, problem solved. 

     

    Lots of folks running early today!  Me, I am SO not a morning runner.  But I will be soon when Texas summer starts.  Way to go on the TM miles, DaveP!  Sorry you're still on the TM though, hope it warms up for you soon.

     

    Hope you have a great run today, Baboon!

     

    Tom, you should log that errant-tree-work as cross-training!  Sounds like a full body workout to me.

     

    Happy miles later, Lily!   My local TV weather forecaster reported on Canada last night - comparing us to them, lol - letting us know to be happy we are in San Antonio because yet another storm was heading to Canada, this time in the Halifax area. Jeez.  When  the heck does all that bad weather end for you....July 1 through July 7?

      Shari, enjoy your run.

       

      Dave, bravo on the 7.1. Boo on the cold.

       

      DaveP MI, great job doing eight before work.

       

      Phil, have a wonderful post-work run. That's a crappy forecast.

       

      Lily, enjoy your run tonight.

       

      scottydawg, have a fantastic four-miler.

       

      6.2 miles in 1:01:36. 9:57 pace. I kept it at a steady 6.0mph (10:00) for the first 5.50 miles. Then, every .10 mile, I increased the speed:

       

      5.50 to 5.60 - 6.1mph (9:49)

      5.60 to 5.70 - 6.2mph (9:40)

      5.70 to 5.80 - 6.3mph (9:31)

      5.80 to 5.90 - 6.4mph (9:22)

      5.90 to 6.00 - 6.5mph (9:13)

      6.00 to 6.10 - 6.6mph (9:05)

      6.10 to 6.20 - 6.7mph (8:57)

       

      Last night, I started taking pseudoephedrine for my congestion. It's working, but, instead of calling it the non-drowsy version, the manufacturer should call it the bitch-please-you-ain't-gonna sleep-while-I'm-in-your-life version.

      BTDT! Too bad they don't make anything else, though, that will actually work to make it possible to breathe.

       

      9 miles done - flat as a pancake, but slower than yesterday's hills. Dang, my legs are tired (maybe because according to my log, I've run 243 miles in the last 30 days?). I did get rained on some, but with temps in the upper 30s, and wearing a jacket and tights, it wasn't at all unpleasant.

        Morning

         

        Tom are you sore from the tree removal?

         

        i haven't run yet but will. Trying to stretch the hip out some. May need to cut the miles today. We will see.

          ...and this is Basya on the stuff....

           

           

           

          Good luck Basya....

          Uffda

            Morning!

             

            Basya, stinks about not getting in to NYC, but you definitely have a first world problem going on there when your backup is Athens, Greece. Smile Hopefully you feel better. DW is also going through a cold now, but she can't take anything because she's expecting.

             

            Shari, when's your next marathon? You've been putting in these crazy miles for a while and I expect it's for some sort of race.

             

            Still doing the cut-back week thing. This morning was 3 Easy miles on the TM. It's pretty nice. My left foot is feeling decent with this cut back in mileage.

             

            Have a great day everyone!

              5.5 miles done.  A little faster than I would have liked but I ran it at easy effort and the pace fell where it did.

              Just B.S.


                Hey all. I've been busy lately. So much snow to shovel all the time. Wink Plus swim, bike, run, work,,,,,

                ,,,,you know the drill...........anyway this is not what we needed after being pounded with at least 2 storms

                a week all winter........yesterdays tally from the blizzard....19+ inches.........6-8 more coming on Sunday


                Spring where for art thou? Training for a spring marathon is tough enough here normally but this year

                has been particularly tough.


                First pic - our deck a few days ago after the weekend storm

                Second pic - our deck part way through the blizzard yesterday

                Swimming at lunch. 7-8 miles on the mill tonight plus helping hubby clear the deck of it's burden.

                    Today will be around the mid 50's BUT horribly windy so sadly I doubt I will be able to take Dorian for a walk but we'll probably be able to go out in the woods a little while at work.

                    Dorian had me up for like 2-3 hours and then we passed out on the couch, I don't think he'll be eating anymore of those Arby's curly fries, he was in severe stomach pains most of the night Sad poor guy.

                    Me is lovin' some coffee right now.

                    Beth, I feel really, really, really, really, really, really >>>>>>>>>REALLY sorry for you Sad

                      Scotty, that is my localish area. We made the news in Texas. Yee Hah!LOL

                      See my pics from said storm. Need to get that deck shoveled before Sunday's storm of 6-8 inches hits.

                      Thanks F.S., of course we are used to winter and bad weather but this year with months of absolutely frigid

                      temps, 25+ snowfalls, several blizzards, an ice storm that lasted for 2+ days at Christmas and left tens of

                      thousands without power (inculding me) over the holidays..........well it's just been a very long very cold very

                      frustrating  winter.

                      Environment Canada is saying no warm-up to spring like temps for us until at least mid April. I had a trail

                      race through the woods on April 26th. May have to wear snowboots Smile

                        I started a blog about running :) Check it out if you care to

                          Morning!  You guys were totally right- my 1600s were really no big deal at that pace.  Fun, even.  It started raining during the second one and pouring for the last one with a strong wind, but that's nothing compared to what some of you are dealing with.

                           

                          Today my heel is sore again, but that usually gets better as I move around.  I will probably run 4 later.

                            Will be in the 80s for pretty much the rest of the week and beyond for San Antonio.....

                             

                             

                             

                            Very sunny today after work and 82 degrees.  However, unlike Damaris' Miami, here in San Antonio we will have LOW humidity and LOW dewpoint, making it feel pretty good outside.    I plan to do about 4 miles after work, but have not decided where yet.  Tough problem  - I have WAY too many running routes to choose from!

                             

                            Rub it in!

                             

                            Morning!  Did 7 miles on the TM and then went straight to court (on the phone).  My cold is pretty bad today so I dropped at 7.  Hubby caught bronchitis and I hope I don't catch it because my asthma is bad as it is.

                                Nothing. I've had state auditors at several facilities so far today. While I can take my phone with me, I can't take the computer and if they need something signed or sent right away being a mile or more from home won't work. No biggie. Will maybe get a few in if they leave.
