        SRD for me, though I will likely be climbing to the top of a rather large sledding hill, in slushy melting snow, several times with DS as part of our church's winter outing. Not sure that is a great recovery activity, but so it goes.

        Legs and body are definitely tired from yesterday, but my toes are better this morning. Time now for modified taper the next two weeks. Still putting in some speedwork, though probably not until Friday this week.

        Will run for scenery.

          Howdy Howdy.


          Zel : that would be awesome if you go to Costa Rica.


          D, Lurch : Git R Done.


          Step : Enjoy your rest in the slush.  You're one hard-workin woman.


          AFM, no foot pain from yesterday's hike (Yay!) so I'm thinking I get right out of bed and do it again.  After coffee.



          Lilly : I hope it's just the bolt.  Good luck w/ that.

          Stupid feet!

          Stupid elbow!

          Will run for scenery.

            Oops, reality check. Wind is blowin' like a MoFo, so no mountain hike.  Maybe just some elliptical during Downton  Abbey.

            Stupid feet!

            Stupid elbow!


            Run to live; live to run

              Jay beautiful day is going out the door and it being 50 and sunny. Knowing it will be about 60 when I was done


              I ran  16.5 miles.

                Congrats Disney runners! Looks like Damaris finishedSmile


                Boyfriend and his doggie are still here. Went on a walk this morning. Felt great! My boyfriend noticed I'm strongly favoring my right foot though and limping even though it doesn't hurt. Still walking like I'm in the boot and not really flexing my ankle. Like a phantom injury.....not really trusting my foot and also not used to using the muscles around my foot and ankle to walk. I have some work to do I guess.

                PRs:   5K- 28:16 (5/5/13)      10K- 1:00:13 (10/27/13)    4M- 41:43 (9/7/13)   15K- 1:34:25  (8/17/13)    10M- 1:56:30 (4/6/14)     HM- 2:20:16 (4/13/14)     Full- 5:55:33 (11/1/15)


                I started a blog about running :) Check it out if you care to



                  10 done in 1:19.  It was pretty windy out but the sun was shining so that was cool.  Not as much ice today either so cool x 2.


                  Then I gobbled up two pancakes with bananas!

                    7 miles done!  Now football.


                      6 miles on the treadmill at the gym, after which moved directly to an hour of yoga.

                      55 miles for the week, 2nd PB week in a row.

                        Lurch is a marathoner and had a respectable time too!


                        I stopped for pictures, walked to take pictures and post them in FB and still beat the NYCM time and could've beaten Space Coast but I was having too much fun.  In pain too.  Happy.

                          Big congrats to Docket and Lurch!    I can't wait to read the reports!


                          DaveP, great job on those PB weeks.


                          Good day today.  I spent more money than I should on running stuff, then I went for a run.  8.65 miles at 7:50 pace OUTSIDE on a hilly route.  BOOM!  The early football game was on, and I went for a run anyway.  What the hell has happened to me?


                          Steak and rice bowls for dinner.  Yummeh!



                            Easy 6 miles.  Enjoy your Sunday, all.

                                233 laps around the indoor track for 20ish miles.  (It's supposed to be 11 laps per mile in the middle lane, but I added some to make up for suspected gains via tangents.)  A chunk of MP, with a few approaching HM pace.  I went out for a BBQ brisket sandwich afterwards, now to curl up on the couch under a pile of blankets and one cat and read.
