Thirsty THURSDAILIES need to hydrate! (Read 225 times)


    20 miles, starting at 2:30 PM.


    On the route I ran today I mixed in some road sections with some greenway sections.


    The first 1.5 miles outbound on the road is tough because of the traffic pattern you have to navigate.


    I made it through and began to settle in to an easy pace and realized that I had no Gels.  I turned around to head back to the car - it's not as bad going back.  Then I loaded up with Gels and went back through the 1.5 mile gaunlet again.


    Some of the greenway regulars gave me funny looks since I was decked out in reflective gear & a headlamp.  And one of them whose husband is a running buddy specifically asked how far I was going since she noticed the gear. 


    Pizza and beer tonight.. 


      Great job on the 20 miler, tinman11.


      6.25 miles for me on the treadmill today, followed by a cool-down walk.  Now its time to dig into the ropa veijo we've had going in the slow cooker all day.

      Life is good.

        Enjoy the pizza and beer tinman. You earned it! 11.1 @ 8:14 with some fartlek. It's getting cold here.

        Wickedly Average

          Nice run, Tinman. Chickamauga Creek greenway by chance?


          Had a work meeting this evening, then shot pool. Lost my 9-ball match, but won the 8 ball match 4 ganes to 3. A tough opponent. It was basically a matter of who made the most mistakes. We both played well.

              I'm late tonight and didn't get to read everything, but Scotty, those pictures are beautiful!


              8 easy miles for me today.  I either never completely got over being sick before Thanksgiving or am starting to get sick again.  Either way, I feel kinda crappy.


                8 easy miles for me as well after a long day at work.  Good to finally be out there today.  I didn't even mind running in the dark.
