    Checking in. Late run, 5.0 miles. T-mill, level. 52:54, avg HR=136. Two good things about LHR: less sweat and my interest in checking HR so far has resulted in less reliance on Shuffle, probably preserving my ears.
      2 miles 12/21/07 pace: whatever, slow enough Did not have time, prepping for the holidays. Ahhhhhh! Was the right thing though, as I've been feeling a bit tired the past three days. Sometimes, you just have to throw the schedule out the window. --Jimmy

        Saturday morning run 7:42AM 5.75 miles MAF 140 14:04 pace Avg HR 133 (max 144 - jumped at top of hill) Laps Avg HR 13:52 126 (5 min walk warmup) 13:33 135 13:50 136 14:13 136 14:18 136 14:50 135 (cooldown walk included) Definitely more evidence of a severly broken aerobic engine. Saw my two guardian angel deer who seem to show up on a lot of runs (visualize the bald guy from The Doors). Best song on shuffle heard today - Manhattan Project by Rush Fluid loss: 1 lb.
          9M early this morning in what I consider the best running conditions in the world. Dark, steady snow falling, no wind, warm (34F). Nothing more quiet and peaceful than running in the snow before first light. Slow run but the cumulative effects of running 9M through an inch or two of heavy wet snow were definitely felt by the end...heavy legs! avg HR 122

            I see deer from time to time on my runs on the bike trail. One day, I was running along this section where there is no where to go but forward, back, up over an eight foot railroad fence, or over a fence into the river below. As I turned the corner, there was a deer in the middle of trail. It saw me, and started to move the other way, but someone else was coming, so it tried to hop over the fence but just bounced off of it, no way it was going to get over it. I immediately started to back up, and put my back against the fence, hoping it would get the message. It got it, and it started running at me, and it passed within 4 feet of me. When it got by me it started to bound like I'd never seen a deer do--almost as if it were psyched to be okay. That was a cool moment. Unforgettable (if I forget it, it's time to check in to the dementia ward). --Jimmy

              Saturday AM Very slow 17.5 Untimed-Deleted time from my Garmin before I looked at it. Very slow and easy Average HR below 130 Temp: Mid 20's Kept it in shorts Ipod: Bighead Todd and the Monsters followed by a little old school VH Modified to add that I saw about 5 deer also. Was running on snowpacked trails so they were absolutely beautiful in their surroundings.

                Got a great deal on a pair of Mizuno Waves last week; $59.95 plus tax. These babies are low (7,922) mileage new in box. That is not a typo.... 6363 Nautical miles via cargo ship Hong Kong to L.A. 1559 miles via 18 wheeler to local Sports Authority....as always, YMMV. Tomorrow's scheduled Long run is where the rubber meets the road. LG1 Rollin'.....in experienced footwear

                    That's weird that we are all seeing and talking about deer, and my Avatar is of deer. On Van Halen, I saw them Worcester Centrum 1984 Album Tour with DL Roth. 8th row on the floor (my frat brother ran Food and Beverage dept there and got us good tickets). I was in a "spacious" state of mind, and (being a musician) I was thinking "why not do this for a living?" And at the precise moment David Lee Roth looked at me, shrugged his shoulders, and mouthed off mike "Why not?" True story--life is a weird thing sometimes. Good luck on your longie, Lowgear. How long? Todays run: 12/22/07 6 miles ave pace 11:38 Aerobic Hill repeats for 3.5 miles (average pace 11:56) 7x 8 .25 mile hills @ 4% incline with .25 mile rest @0% keeping heart at 132-134 on hills (MAF 134), and 124-126 on rests no music or tube, just relaxed and ran, and played Have a great weekend. --Jimmy

                        1.5 hours of snow shoveling that definitely put me in Anaerobic HR - will this set me back? 3 mile walk with Phoebe the White Lab in the evening

                          No run today. Drove down to parents hoome with family. Will get up early tomorrow morning to cap off week. Nothing like running in the old stomping grounds...at MAF, of course

                            That is awesome, Jimmy. I also saw them in 1984, and also might have also been "spacious." You know, it was a concert and it was the early eighties. Saw them once with Sammy but it wasn't the same. Going back to see themthis year with DLR and Wolfie. $150 as opposed to $14 in '84. So Jimmy, why not?

                                I ran about 8 miles back and forth in the high school parking lot. Light rain. I can only estimate distance based on MAF and known pace. I ran over 90 minutes. Avg HR=136. Beautiful day to run, glad it's over
