It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
On the road back
I have a love/hate relationship with running. I do it, but sometimes I love to hate it.
I am not tired or sore, and still may not run.
Teach cycle yes. Golf tomorrow, so sore and tired after running may not be the wisest choice.
Enjoy cyle today and golf tomorrow Cash!
Enjoy your day off (if that's what you do) Paul
Good morning Perry Enjoy your evening run.
Good morning to everyone! Got lots of trail running done this weekend. The guys I ran with picked a local trail race to squish in during our 6 hours of running. I tried to tell them that it was very technical (LOTS of roots and rocks). Well one of them ended up banging up his knee really good so who knows how long that will take to heal. Tom and I managed to get 5 and a half hours in. Surprising cause Tom's in his 60's and had done 28 miles the day before. He's going to do awesome at the Lone Ranger 24 hour race. Anyway hope everyone had a great weekend!

Gonna get 4 miles in at lunch. Hopefully my back will hold out. Rested it this weekend sort-of. Did lots of yard work. Typical weekend. Put some lbs back on, have to work it off the rest of the week. Most of my pants look like clown pants now. I may need to go down a waist size.
I haven't been following, but maybe will be able to again soon.
3 easy miles this morning, but my legs were very tired so they weren't really "easy" at all. Yesterday's run took a lot out of me, even tho I only ran 9. But it was starting to get pretty warm so I'd cut it short. Seems like I did the right thing, given how I felt this morning...

Yard work isn't really taking it easy on your back, Murphy. Just thought I'd mention that. And good for you on the weight loss! New pants makes it seem more "real" somehow. I'd go shopping.
Hey Lou! Nice to see you here. And yes, sounds like you needed to cut it short yesterday. You've been under a lot of work stress lately, and that's bound to affect your running.
I tripped over one of those concrete things in the parking lot on Saturday (don't know what they're called...) walking around the front of our truck with a big bag of groceries. Caught my right foot on it and down I went on my knee. I said naughty words, then said some more when I realized the bag was the one with the eggs. Grrr. Got a nice scrape and bruise on my knee but seems to be just surface stuff. I ran 8.3 on Saturday morning, and 16.5 on Sunday mid-day for 47.7 for the week. Nice to have a good week of running so I can cutback a bit this week. I think I'll start by taking today off.
Yeah, I realized that. Ran 3 miles on the tm at lunch. Back felt fine. legs are real strong. It just stiffens up sitting at my desk. I'm itching to get a nice easy long run in..hopefully this weekend. The plan is 3-4 miles every day at lunch and then 4-6 miles in the evening 2-3 times this week after Ava goes to sleep--and then if Im feeling OK to go long on Sunday.
I'll get some new pants this weekend.
I did go out and get in a 40 minute run tonight. Of course, it was 85F, so my easy run felt easy, but the HR was a bit higher than I'd like.
Back feels more like its normally generally aching self. Really looking forward to running outside at lunch today. My weight is stil up a few pounds since the weigh in. Will be a challenge to be down for the Friday weigh in. May give up my lead for a week--but while others are partaking in 4th of July eating, I will be running and eating fairly healthy and drinking water.
Poor Ava has pink eye and a double ear infection and ruptured an eardrum. The kid does not complain. We had no idea on the ear infection..never tugged the ears, and hasnt fussed at all. Daycare was very surprised as well. So, she'll get the tubes in finally next week. Mommy staying home with her today.
the first 2 miles, which were supposed to be fast warmup, were at 6:30 and 5:55.
So when I first read that I was thinking 6:30 a.m..
Worked all day and night, thought about skipping run, ran 8 with 5 hill repeats. Glad I got it in the books.
