The Morning DAILIES: Part of a complete breakfast (Read 38 times)



    Yo baby, yo baby, yo!


    I was not really sure what was going on when I woke up this morning as it was dark as heck outside, but it turned out it is raining pretty good.


    I have an hour of red cord today which I have re-upped for four more sessions this month.  I will reevaluate where I am at the end of it but there is no mistaking my core muscles are getting stronger and more importantly my single leg balance is much improved.


    I also have an appointment with the time card this morning which has me feeling some type of way.  lol


    What about you, are you off from work or running or both?

      Last week of work before the big European vacation!

      Easy run today, recovery Monday after long run Sunday.

      I say things. I do things. Does it all have to make sense?

        Good morning.


        Rick, thank you for starting today's thread. Enjoy core work.


        Cyberic99, have a pleasant recovery run.


        4.50 slow miles in 45:00 (10:00) done on the TM. After work, I'll do either 9.0 or weights+push-ups+abs+cardio.


          Morning, Mr LRB! We have some rain here too. Enjoy the red cord session. Sounds kinky. :-)


          Morning, Cyber! How's the wife with her new tubes? I hope it went smoothly for her. Don't forget to keep running once in Spain. or the glutes will get you! :-)


          15 miles tonight, because I have to do some switching around due to obligations.


          Have a great day!

              After only 3-4 hrs of sleep last night, woke up this morning to thunderstorms. Wanted to go back to sleep, but dragged myself out of bed instead & did 7 on the treadmill. And of course now the rain has let up.


              Have a good day everyone.

                Hey.  Monday.  Monday after a four day weekend is rough, yo.  At least I get to sit on my butt all day today...well, until my post-work run, anyway.  Got 8-10 miles planned.  Time to start cranking the miles back up.


                I think I need a weekend to recover from my weekend.

                  Morning!  I have been at the office for an hour and I already want to go home.  Ha.  SRD, or XT, or some recovery run.  We'll see.

                  It's always fucking hot in Miami!


                    Morning, all! I was away for a family reunion over the long weekend. I did run twice (Thursday and Friday): once around a beautiful park in Sioux Falls, SD, and the other time from our hotel in town to my grandparents' house out in the country. That second one was straight into 20-25 mph winds - that's a workout.

                    I did skip one run over the weekend in favor of sleeping in, so now I've got to get back to it. 5.33 miles this morning with the group, though I was supposed to do 8. I'll make up the missing miles and add extra by running on tomorrow's SRD. And martial arts tonight will count as my core workout, since we almost always at least do crunches and pushups, if not several other core training exercises.



                      Morning! It's the first day of my 14 week HM training. It's also my first workout doing Daniel's Rep pace, which is faster than intervals. I did four sets of 200,200,400 with the same distance in recovery.


                      Sets were:
                      48, 46, 1:34
                      49, 49, 1:38
                      50, 47, 1:39
                      50, 49, 1:37


                      Not bad considering I was going for 48 on the 200s and 1:38 on the 400s. Total run this morning was 6.5 miles in 53 minutes. I also started a 30 day planking challenge that T-Rod had on his Facebook page. I decided to try it after a muscle in my back isn't getting better so I need to stop pushups and pullups, which seem to be aggravating it. Hopefully the planking won't hurt it. If it does, I'll give that up too.

                        Good morning dailies,


                        After 4 am wake ups most of last week, I felt like I slept in when I woke up at 6. Man, do I ever feel refreshed after feeling like crap all of yesterday. 10 miles later.

                          Quality this morning:

                          10 total miles (75F and 70 dewpoint)


                          I can't decide which was worse; the intervals or the 4 easy miles after.



                          Have a great Monday!

                            Isn't that the truth.

                                Busy first day back but I kicked butt this morning!
