WEDNESDAILIES Are Riding That Hump Like <insert phrase o'choice here> (Read 56 times)


@runjerseygirl

    Ran this morning and rest day tomorrow, so I decided to trash the legs today.  Weighted squats, deadlifts, adductors, abductors, glute kick backs, extensions, curls, presses, more deadlifts.  Might not be able to walk tomorrow, but my ass will look fantastic!

    Do you even run?

      Hi everybody.  I ran a progression run this morning, 12.36 miles total.  The first 6 miles were easy, then the last 6 were at a 6:56 average.  Considering that I was following up yesterday's tough run, I was really happy with how well my legs were moving today.

       

      Tonight will be 5 easy miles with the running group, which I always look forward to.  I only get one meal today because it's Ash Wednesday, so I'm trying to hold off for a little while, even though I'm starving!

        Soooooo, I may have run the last 70 miles or so with a broken leg (yes, I'm being melodramatic lol).  Remember that pipe I stepped in about a week and a half ago?  Well, I'm still getting pain and swelling, so I went to the doctor today, and from the initial look at the xrays she thinks there's a fracture on both the tibia and fibula.  They sent it off to a radioligist for confirmation.  So no running until I hear back, yay.  Sad

         

        Hope everyone is having a great day!

         

        Nooo!  I hope it's not that serious.  Thoughts your way!

          I am sure your ass could not possibly look more fantastic.

           

          Ugh, planned lunchtime run today, but my meeting scheduled to go to 11:30 went to 12:45. I hate when my job gets in the way of my running. If only I didn't have to, oh, support a family. Hopefully I can sneak out in time to run this evening.

              Did 10 miles this morning. Felt tired. Don't know if it's from the pollen, the humidity or if I'm just worn out. Unlike Gustav, I didn't get revitalized from my run. I'm just glad it's over. 

              I had one of those too recently.  Hopefully your next run will be better.

               

              Kay, glad to hear about your run, and a decent length one too.

               

              Jay, and it would've been nice to hear a pop!  Luckily I was on my last rep, I'll hop on the other one tomorrow just in case.

               

              Good call Boon.  I don't screw around with those things much either.

               

              D2nd, hoping for the best!

                  Lrb...are those strides at 5m/m pace?  I'm pretty sure I'd land flat on my face (or worse, through a wall) if I tried to set the TM to that pace.  Impressive stuff.

                    The machine tops out at 12 mph, which claims it's a 5:00 pace.  I do not know how accurate that is, so I take it all with a grain of salt.  I am not interested in calibrating the belt or any of that, just hoping to be done with the stupid thing once and for all in the next month or so.

                     

                    Whatever pace it is, it has gotten easier over the past two weeks.  Not easier perse, just not as hard.

                          Dave,hope that you don't have any fractures.

                           

                          Just completed 475 miles, driving, of course. I'm down in Jacksonville visiting the family for a few. No run today, but I intend to head out and run a few tomorrow. Might take the dog for a walk later this evening, though.

                           

                          The new car performed very well. Comfortable, mileage is starting to improve, and it goes like a scalded dog when you put the hammer down! Smile

                                Nice running, LRB..you broke the treadmill!

                                 

                                Way to persevere, Pinktastic, and get yourself out for that run!

                                 

                                Dang, Jedi, I don't think I can do an  8-something pace even in my dreams, lol.

                                 

                                And how'd the passport photo turn out, Basya? Those photos are often like your driver's license photos, lol. "Wait..I look like THAT?" Joking

                                 

                                Happy taper madness now, outoftheblue!  I bet you will do just fine for your HM.

                                 

                                Sorry about the knee still hurting, Phil. Percocet?  So all your movies are 'in color" when you take that stuff, right?  Wink  Phil, go to a health store and get some Arnica, it is a 'natural' pain reliever.  You can get it in capsules or a lotion to rub right on the leg.  See if that will give you some relief.  I used it to good effect after a couple of my knee surgeries.

                                 

                                Dang, Dave, you are Superman, being able to run 70 miles on that leg!  Sorry for your news, that sucks.  Sorry to hear you too, Traci, are injured.  Hmmm, maybe both of you can get together and do some 3-legged walking, since you have two good legs between you. Wink  Wishing you both a speedy recovery!

                                 

                                Good luck with the run, FreeSoul!  Neither snow nor sleet nor slush....can you deliver mail while running too?  Wink

                                 

                                Just B.S., you are turning into Esther Williams!  If you know who that is, lol, I am aging myself here. Congrats on your pool progress!

                                 

                                Kay, what do you mean "WILL look"....you are already there, lady!  Big grin  Congrats on your intense leg-trashing workout.

                                 

                                Enjoy the group run, So I'm A Runner.  One meal...where do you get the energy to run with just one meal?

                                 

                                Hope you get your run in today/tonite sometime, Dave!

                                 

                                and it goes like a scalded dog   Gee, Tom, thanks for putting THAT image into my head! Joking   Are you on a driving tour/vacation or something?  Safe traveling!  Hope you are able to get a few runs in along the way.

                                 

                                Shirfan, hope the run went well and the shoes worked great for you.
