      Andy, great job on the 5K!  Good stuff!

       

       

      My ski day got cut short an hour in.  Crashed, wrenched my knee, had to be sledded to first aid by ski patrol.  That's a first for me.  I'm injured but at this point I don't know how bad.  It hurts though...same knee I had ACL reconstruction on three years ago.  Shit.

       

      This is why I quit skiing when I grew up. I liked it, but not enough to keep risking my knees. Hope nothing is torn up in there.

          Dave, awesome speed on that 10K!

           

          Great race, Robert!

           

          April, love the new rack. I mean, medal hanging rack, of course. Smile

            Fuzzy: Nice run today!

             

            Scrape: Great job - that's a good size run!

             

            B-Plus: We are on the same running schedule or something this week, but you keep 1-upping me: just a hair longer and a whole lot faster!  Nicely done!!!

              RMTB - I was thinking the same thing! I'm only planning for 6.5 -7 tomorrow, so make sure you don't run any further than 6.3. I'll also likely be keeping it slow, so I'd appreciate if you would keep your run at a recovery effort. Thank you.

                  was supposed to be my long run of 9 miles today. Worked all night--set my alarm to get up at 2:00, looked out the window and saw the winter storm so did the treadmill.

                  I could only tolerate 4 miles on the treadmill before I couldnt stand the boredom so hopped off and went back to bed.

                  Not really the way to train for what I have planned, but sometimes you just gotta nap.


                  Bad Ass

                    RMTB, do me a favor.  Kick his ass in the game.  Thank you.

                      Just got back from running in the 5th Annual Lou Gehrig's 10K Run. I'm pretty dang pleased with my race results. Smile

                        c0de, Dave, Robert- Huge congratulations to all of you today!  Way to go!

                         

                        c0de and Dave, way to rock the negative splits on your pacing too!

                          Congrats to the other Dave, too!  A good day for racing all around, it seems.

                            Thank you. I didn't make my goal of a 55 minute 10K, but I came close! 56:49 and I felt great all the way through the run. I feel as if there was more in me, but I'm still happy. I placed in the top 30% overall and that, IMHO, ain't too bad for a newbie, ya know? Big grin

                              Ooh, I kind of had a super secret sub-55 the last time I ran that distance, and wasn't even close!  But it was my first 10K and I wasn't really prepared.

                               

                              Next time sub-55 isn't even going to be the "A" goal, though! Smile

                                That's SUCH a great race and you were so super duper close to your goal!  Top 30% OA is pretty darn awesome.  Great race!!!!
