Fear is a Liar
WELCOME TO THE DAILIES THREAD!
Anyone and everyone can post your runs, cross-training, abdominal work, rest days, race plans, training questions, etc. The only stupid question is the one you did not post. There’s a great mix of beginners and veterans, runners and walkers, and maniacs and returners (from injury, to running, to RA). We're all a little crazy here too! While this thread is a terrific source of motivation for runners and serves as outstanding accountability, you’ll quickly find this remarkable group to be highly supportive of all life experiences. So, come on in, put your feet up and stay awhile (not literally)! And whoever’s up first is welcome to start the thread (and we definitely keep some weird hours around here
I'm so vegetarian I don't even eat animal crackers!
Samurai in Training
Hohoho... In a good moods this morning. Sore frame yesterday's strength training but test ill happy.
Off for a run and another gym visit later working chest and back.
Just wrapped up a new distance PR: 6.21 miles. Virtual 10k done.
Do you even run?
Hit the gym yesterday for a full body workout on the machines. Started to add a little weight. At home I did some lower leg resistance band exercises and stretches.
Yesterdays knife and fork experience included two scoops of ice cream (Expresso Bean and Butternut Pecan Swirl) from Owowcow in Ottsville, followed up with Thai food in Doylestown. That's right, dessert came first!

I stayed up a little late, and I'm just getting up...
"Training is not always fun, but it should always be rewarding."
K... congrats on the new distance PR!
Racers... good luck!
BasyaSpiliakos... enjoy the run, workout and abs later. I have to start working that back into the mix in a few weeks too.
I wanted to do 20 today, but my legs have been trashed. We'll see what I'm able to do. It might be a short one.
Not a dude
Good morning! I had a bad night of sleep and I don't feel like swimming. So I guess I will climb on the stationary bike and doze off while my feet go.
Good luck, Phil.
Heidi, sorry your legs aren't 100% right now. Have you had a cutback week recently? I know you're heading into training soon.
Yesterday was my first run of the week so far (was sick all week). So today's LR won't be all that long. I'm heading out for 6, and if I feel okay after a few miles, I might take a different turn somewhere and add on another mile.
ETA: I was able to take enough detours to make it a nice 8 mile run. It was foggy and in the 20s, which meant the roads were slick. That forced me to maintain a pretty steady 10mm pace...and I didn't look at my Garmin until the last mile -- only to see what I had so I knew where I could end it.
more miles = more beer
