    Where is everyone?  

     

    Apparently I can't figure out how to paste the report table in here.  How do we do the mileage summary?

     

    3 easy for me this morning.  A bit chilly.

      A week after a marathon, Amores'  mileage is still higher than mine!

        But Perry is a freak of nature. It doesn't count. 3rd week in a row of increasing miles for me. Low bar but still better. Off to the T-mill now.
        I ran a mile and I liked it, liked it, liked it.

            Hello again everyone!  Well I didn't get the full 50 in  Sad I got 32 miles  which I was very happy with. Turns out it wasn't anything to do with my training that stopped me instead it was female issue's which REALLY suck but such is life.  I've decided no more signing up for races months and months in advance. It's not too bad for short races however not good for long races. I've also decided that it's time to start training for a fall race and that I will not be doing any Ultra's this summer! It will be hard for me however I really want to race ( I mean really race and not just show up and have fun) Today was my first day of training. We shall see how it goes.

             

            Congrats to all the racers last week!

              Hi Pam! Good of you to stop by, we get concerned when you don't show up and don't post many miles. And where the heck is Bugs??

               

              Waaahhh! Look at my piddly miles from last week! I hate being sick. Could barely run 3 stoopid miles on the treadmill last night and almost died. I hate this. I'm so cranky you would not even believe it.

                 Sorry to hear you're sick Erika Sad Hope you get better ASAP!  

                 

                I hate posting then not coming back for awhile, but I get in a funk like that sometimes. Now that I'm actually training for a marathon (I think) I should be here more often. 

                 

                Have no idea where bugs is Sad Hope she's doing alright!

                  Hi Pam!  (waves)

                   

                  10 this morning and weights this evening.  Mailed my Hospital Hill 1/2 Entry off this morning.  Hope I can get some sort of confirmation from them before getting a room booked.  Forecasted 1-2 more inches of snow tonight then 70 for the weekend.  Can't wait to get back out the shorts.

                      Easy 5 on the treadmill at the hotel this evening after work.  Nice and steady.

                       

                      Felt pretty nice.

                      I ran a mile and I liked it, liked it, liked it.

                        I did a nice 4 miles of recovery and wrote my lengthy race novel report.

                          Thank you for posting that Paul. 

                           

                          I especially enjoyed this:

                           

                           

                          I knew that miles 3 and 4 were downhill and so I’d planned on running them in the lower 8′s, and when I saw them click off in 7:55 and 7:57, I had 2 thoughts: I was running too fast, and I was running too fast but felt awesome and should try to run a 1:45.

                           

                          I can't quite put into words how cool this but I can totally relate.  That moment when you feel great.  When you begin to believe that you can reach your stretch goal, and you go for it.  You made it all the way through Mile 11 with that dream in tact and that is totally awesome.  

                           

                          And you finished strong.  It doesn't get much better than that.  1:45 is out there for you and you'll easily reach it enroute to your next full marathon training cycle.   

                          I ran a mile and I liked it, liked it, liked it.

                            7.2 miles @ 8:18/mi on tired legs.

                                It's a good thing that guy handed you the gatorade bottle before he started rather than after he was done.  Hey, you never did say what he did with it.  Funny, but I have heard about this, but never would do it and I don't recall having seen anyone do it either.

                                 

                                You showed a lot of heart, the way you finished that race, Paul.  Well done.
