    Another new week.

     

    Oh, so I can do this from IE, but not Chrome.  Good to know.

     

    Some people aren't logging their miles, I see

      56.4 miles for myself. Trying to decide what to do today. I have a double on plan however I'm kind of thinking maybe just one run before tomorrow's speed workout. Since I'm not marathon or ultra training at the moment no need to put in the higher mileage.

       

       

       

      MTA: crap just checked the weather and may just put off speed work until Wed. Supposed to be really rainy and WINDY tomorrow. Rain I have no problem but when it gets windy it's not just a little.

      On the road back

        Lowest mileage for me in a while, but it's cool.  I ran the Bridge Run 10k in 52:05 officially - disappointed because I can run faster and it was way too crowded to move a lot of the time.  So, I'll take the PR and then set another one soon.

        2013 Goals: Run more. Smile while I do it. Complete 2 marathons in a year. (1 down, 1 to go)

          Aw, I was going to comment on the 1k race time, but I see you got back in quickly and fixed that.  Smile

           

          Congrats on the PR

            Ran a 10mi race Sun and got a 2min PR, so very happy with that. With that added to my 3min marathon PR earlier this month, now I feel stress-free about running and racing.

             

            Pam, hope your blisters heal, and have fun with the speedwork - I find it pretty fun sometimes, so hope you have a blast.

            It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

               CONGRATS Perry on your PR!! Just read about it in the swamp and LOVE your lil race report! Gotta love feeling stress free!

               

               

              Great job on your 10k Paul despite how crowded the race was! I did the Broadstreet 10 miler ONCE and vowed never again because of so many people. Makes it really hard to race it well enough.

               

              Thanks Perry! I just finished putting on rubbing alcohol on my pinky as well as the rub on the side of my foot from the Vibrams and putting new liquid skin on them. I ended up doing a short speed workout this morning. Would have loved to go longer however I even though my pinky blister isn't aggrivated by the Vibrams the rub on the side of the foot was. Looks like I'll be wearing my clunky trail shoes tomorrow since they don't mess with either blister or rub they just slow me down. The workout would have been so much funner had my feet been blister free. Well maybe by Thursday or Friday

                Pam, haven't you experimented with barefoot running? Any nice fields inside tracks you can do some short speed stuff on?

                  What? Me? Log? heh

                  I'm touching your pants.

                    Um, Perry, there's a kitty in your bucket. Awkward.

                       one day I hope too Perry. Right now all the fields are muddy. They never seem to get to dry much and I have no access to inside tracks. If I did I'd be running BF at least once a week.

                        Email of bib number arrived to day.  I have number 1002.  Online tracking is availble http://www.gostlouis.org/

                         

                        I won't know my corale assignment until packet pickup.  Forecast is looking good if I can finish before it gets into the 70's.  I'm feeling good and hoping the time I run will be as good as the time I have. Smile

                          Hi guys! Great fast 6 miles tonight.

                            Good luck, Bryan!

                             

                            Nice to have a fast run, eh, Kimmie?

                             

                            We just received "Born to Run".  I wonder if I'll be thinking about barefoot running after reading that?

                             

                            Hi, willamona -- don't be such a stranger!

                             

                            8.2 miles @ 8:12/mi for me this morning.

                              Hey Kimmie! I had a nice brisk 6 miler at lunch yesterday! We were running twins! Smile

                               

                              Good luck, Bryan! I hope the warmer temps hold off for your race. Nothing worse than a melt down at the end. ooops, none of that kind of talk. I'm sure it'll be IRC for your run!!

                               

                              Nice run, Lou! Eleven more days, right? You are ready, and I think both you and PDR are going to have a great race.

                               

                              Our conditions turned kind of dreary today with some light snow last night, and chilly and breezy today! Great. It's run-home-from-work-Wednesday. At least the wind is from the west, and I'm running east so I'll have a tailwind. Might help with the hills.

                                Eleven more days, right?
