    Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

                Monday1515.16My first table entry!
                Tuesday55.24Rain, rain go away.
                Wednesday1316.13Supposed to be frigid tomorrow. So change of plans. I am moving the 11 miler to Friday. Today I added three miles that I plan to subtract from tomorrow's run, which will now be 6 miles.
                Thursday116.21Cold, so cold! Just 9 degrees out so it was a 10K on the dreadmill. Sad
                Friday911.25When will winter ever end! Cry Another run in freezing temperatures.
                Saturday00Tough run but I made it!

                Look at that a table! Shocked I am a happy puppy! In case anybody else wants to try here is a template: <#table> <#tr> <#td>Day<#> <#td>Plan<#> <#td>Actual<#> <#td>Commentary<#> <#> <#tr> <#td>Monday<#> <#td>Number 1<#> <#td>Number 2<#> <#td>Text<#> <#> <#> To use this template you need to do the following: (1) Remove the # symbols. (2) Remove ALL of the line breaks. Yep, all of them or your table will have more of them than you can ever imagine! So you will end up with one long string of code. I would post what it should look like but it creates a really wide page! You should also remove the spaces. These are in the template to make it easy for a person to read. Alas, the computer botches it up. Yes, tables are a pain but apparently they can be done.</#></#></#></#td></#></#td></#></#td></#></#td></#tr></#></#></#td></#></#td></#></#td></#></#td></#tr></#table>

                            Undecided So this is where the thread ran away to. Been very sick but I have turned the corner. The damage in a few critical lost long runs last week may not be recoverable before Carlsbad 1/20, but at least I feel like a human again. I have heard of walking pnemonia, I think I had the running variety. Hope everyone is well, - for someone who have been less than regular - this whole transition thing has taken some adjustments. Less than 2 degrees this evening from upstate NY. Anyway - keep me on the list - I will try to stay in tune with this new location Monday 4.5 total - 5K in 25:02 simply dying, wheezing and coughing Tyuesday 6.0 total in 65 minutes, trail shoes on the road in a blizzard thru over a foot of blowing snow Wednesday 5.0 in 41:07 - FINALLY a strong loop and solid run - I am getting over this illnessSmile Thursday 5.0 in 41:47 - solid run in 2 degrees F - struggled to breath thru the frozen mask last 1.5 miles Friday - Travel and Running Rest day Saturday - 6 EZPZ Hills Sunday - 15-20 Weather and health dependent. Total to date: 20.5 Estimated finish - possibly 46.5 Cheers ! PTS

                                PJH in the section that looks like: <#tr> <#td>Monday<#> <#td>Number 1<#> <#td>Number 2<#> <#td>Text<#> <#> replace the "Number 1," the "Number 2," and "Text" with whatever you like. It will then show up as part of the table. To create new rows copy the above and change the "Monday" to the other days of the week or the word "Total" or "Fuzzy Bear" or whatever you like. Each <#td><#> creates a column and each <#tr><#> a row. Whatever you put in the middle of each pair is what gets displayed in the cell. Just be sure that you have the same number of columns in each row. I am not sure how the browser will render things if you do not. Hopefully this will solve your problem. If not just let us know. About deleting a post: there was a thread somewhere here on RH about deleting a post. Apparently you cannot do it. The best you can do is edit the post and erase everything that is in it.</#></#tr></#></#td></#></#></#td></#></#td></#></#td></#></#td></#tr>
