    Nightcrawler – Have a wonderful run tonight!!

     

    I ran 12 glorious miles yesterday around noon.   It was warmish, but the breeze was delightful and the cloud patterns were fun to watch as they changed constantly.   I’m looking for 5.5ish tonight if I can leave work on time.  

     

    Have a Pinkeriffic Monday, y’all!!   And, may your next run be injury-free and completely blissful!!

      Enjoy the rest day, Dave.

       

      Good luck with the father-son contest, Eddie!

       

      Sorry about the hamstring, April.  Hope it's 100% in no time.

       

      I admire that you can ski, Baboon.  I tried it once...I ran into a goat......Blush

       

      This is my last workweek before the holidays.  Since I work for a university, we pretty much shut down, so no work from this weekend until January 2nd, nice.

       

      This does not surprise me.  I don't know why.

       

      David, I like the 15s but never tried the 12s, 13s, or 14s.  The 16s are worth a try, IMO.

              Especially with the guy who opened his car window just to laugh at me. To top it off, I tried to get into the coffee shop downstairs but it wasn't open yet and the worker just smiled at me. I'll have to steal some beans from my co-worker.

                Go figure

                  Hi everyone.  8.55 miles done this morning.  It was day 21 of my streak, and even though I'm getting a little sick of it, I promised myself I'd run every day in December.  The thought of trying to run every day through my marathon (April) had crossed my mind, but I know it's not necessary for reaching my goal, so I'll probably scrap that.  Who knows, maybe if I just keep at it the mental staleness will diminish.  I definitely think that aspect of a streak is more difficult than the physical.

                  PRs:  Marathon (2:49xx; '13)  Half (1:25xx; '12) 10k (40:26; '11) 5mi (29:23; '13) 5k (17:33; '13)

                    I stayed up super late finishing up my assignments for a class last night, and it also occurred to me that my Knuckle Lights are being delivered today, so if I ran tonight I could test them out. Ultimately, it really didn't take much self-convincing to stay in bed this morning instead of running. I'll run about 3 miles tonight instead. Smile

                      Good Morning All!

                       

                      Ouch, Kristin, sorry about your falls! Hope you don't have any lingering pain from that.

                       

                      Sadly, my December streak came to a screeching halt on Saturday. I ran 8.5 Friday. Saturday, however, I spent the whole day cleaning and cooking for a little party I threw for some friends, running partners and their families. I really had no time to spare for even a 1 mile run :-(  Oh well... Did a damage contol run of 6 miles Sunday to work off the food and drink from the night before. Today I did strides/easy run totaling 6 miles with my run group.

                        Run done - 10.23 miles at 9:47 overall pace. Didn't finish up in time for the class, though, so I just added some planks, crunches and shoulder bridges to my stretching routine. I was dragging around mile 8 or so, but then got a second wind about halfway through mile 10 - thought about running a little farther, but too many things to get done today.

                            3 at 10:22 pace during lunch today.  I think I need to start picking up the pace if I'm going to meet my new challenge.

                            Do you even run?

                                Kay, just be careful not to run every run too fast. 10:22 is way on the low end of my McMillan easy range and my 5k PR is a little bit faster than yours. Maybe you could try adding in a tempo run once a week and some fartleks and strides once a week, so you do SOME runs a bit faster without wearing yourself out?
