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

      10.1 hot, slow miles this morning and weight lifting for chest and shoulders tonight.  I will be in bed early.  ugh.

        First workout of mile training (I'm just joining in with a friend who laid out a plan of key workouts) tonight. 2x(8x300).Very tired afterward.

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

          Thanks for starting, Paul.

           

          Nice runs.  Perry can't wait to see your mile result.  Have you read Once a Runner?  Great book!

           

          I took advantage of the cooler weather (61° is cooler?), and ran a bit faster this morning.  9.2 miles @ 8:20/mi.

            Ran/walked for an hour last night. Need to get used to the heat. Not worried about pace or distance..it will come..but is largely irrelevant for my 24 hour training.

            HobbyJogger & HobbyRacer

              Heck, I feel cold in the morning if I'm in running clothes and it is below 70, now.

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


              Bugs

                It is 100F and 56mph wind here... but no flooding.

                 

                So glad I ran this morning

                 

                Hey see I actually kept up with my log this week. Trying to work on instrumentation in my life.

                   From the sweat fest last weekend.

                   

                  10-miles this morning followed by core and legs at the gym this evening.

                   

                  No that's not a livestrong band on the right wrist, it's for the free beer at the finish!

                    Pace you look really strong!

                     

                    Team Blister is hawt.

                     

                    6 miles at 5 this morning. Open water swim at 4:45 and a bike time trial at 6:30. The bike trials are every two weeks. I think you're suppose to bike in-between though. Sad

                    HobbyJogger & HobbyRacer

                      Heh. If anyone asks, tell them you normally bike regularly, once every two weeks, but the time trials interfere with your normal biking time slot Smile

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


                      Bugs

                        How about, "I'm waiting to train till I can buy a three thousand dollar bike like you"

                          That makes me want to watch the "You need to train" video again... dunno where it is...

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


                          Bugs

                            Oh I feel bad... My old RP has been hurt most of the year. Her last run was March 19th. It is something in her inside hip. It hurt for months just to put weight on the one leg. She went to our good old chiropractor and he thought stress fracture. She didn't want to spend the money on medical bills so she has not ran, only biked and walked some. She's tried a little running it still hurts. My advice was to go to the doctor. I'm afraid she should have been on crutches. But she apparently still doesn't want to spend the money. The real problem is she is our Team Captain for Ragnar. When it came time to sign up she was leary but I said even if you can run six miles, will run the rest. We just had another runner back off the team and now shes feeling like she should drop off too. I don't know what advice to offer her. She's really feeling bad.

                            Bugs

                              Bugs - Harriet had a hip SF and it was pretty serious.  She was on crutches for 6 weeks or so.  Actually she was lucky it was a compression SF (on top).  The bad ones are on the bottom of the hip as it can cause complications.  Now having said that it is a pretty rare event to get a hip SF but they only way they can figure it out for sure, I think, is MRI.

                               

                              Anyway, ran 9.2 in 72°, with dew point 68° -- warm and humid conditions made my legs feel pretty heavy at times.

                                Hey Guys-

                                 

                                I haven't checked in  for awhile.

                                 

                                Ran a half marathon on Sunday in 2:07- slowest ever, but I haven't been running much lately, probably a bit too much weight lifting.  I still can't find a balance.  My legs are getting too muscular, too.  I never thought I would say that, but I prefer smaller legs- more running, less squats.  Smile

                                 

                                My RP ran her fastest time ever on Sunday and she was thrilled.  I just need to get back to regular running.   I will have to make summer plan.  Can't go early since DH goes to work and I have the kiddos.  I've been running once they get on the bus, if I'm not working that day.  Today at 8:30 it was 90 degrees.   Smile  Yay!   But I still got out there and it's better than the treadmill.

                                 

                                Looks like lots of people had good mileage weeks, in spite of the heat.    Love to hear about your tri training, Bugs.  Sorry to hear about your RP- wish I was closer and I'd run Ragner with you guys.

                                 

                                 

                                I peeked in the Masters group and saw how Erika did on her race... but I'll let her check in here and share.  Smile
