Marathon Maniac #957

    Twocat sent me a macro for the weekly tally to make it more readable. The logistics are wayyyy over my head, but it works! Thanks Twocat! Let me know if I missed anyone or got the numbers wrong.
    Twocat - 65.19 Excellent weather for the LR
    CNYrunner - 63 Topping a great week with a 20-miler ending in progression run.
    Perch - 56.4 And feeling great!
    PJH - 53 In spite of a chest cold!
    Tallrunner52 Plus spinning and weights.
    Breger -51.252 months after marathon and still in excellent shape.
    Pfriese - 50.1 Back-to-back HM and Marathons - Goofy!
    Tramps - 46.8 Plus core work and intervals.
    Holly - 45.8 A run with CNYrunner brightened my week.
    Rgreen45 On 5 days with a 20-miler topping it off.
    SirWalksalot - 40.99 In four days.
    Predawnrunner40.45 You are always a welcome addition, lovely lady!
    Way5yom - 40 Race week!
    Evenflein - 35.77 Heading into taper mode
    Thought I'd give the table a try for my weekly runs. Hopefully I didn't mess it up.
    Monday00Weights and Abs
    Tuesday7-910.15hill workout
    Thursday7-10103@MP and brisk for the rest
    Friday00Weights and abs
    Sunday187slow and easy

    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."

      See Holly not so hard! Smile Looks good too. Now everybody is getting in with the fancy headings. Ok, me too then! Also, I created a Word document with a built in macro that converts a standard Word table into one that posts here in HTML (just copy and paste the results). If anybody is interested in getting a copy let me know and if you know of some way to post it around here.
      Monday1414.42 Big snow storm wimped out! Just a little slush on the road. Cool
      Tuesday99.88 I just hate all speed work! Glad it is over for the week.
      Wednesday1212.19 Semi-recovery run.
      Thursday55.50 Real recovery run!
      Friday2020.64 Done! Best of all not another 20+ miler on the schedule for two weeks. Big grin
      Saturday00 Plane travel day. Made it but luggage took an extra few hours.
      Sunday55 Likely on a TR. Yep, on a treadmill. Sad

            "Some are the strong, silent type. You can't put your finger on exactly what it is they bring to the table until you run without them and then you realize that their steadiness fills a hole that leaks energy in their absence." - Kristin Armstrong

              Copying the old table again into the new thread... it seems to get a bit more "jumbled" every time...

                  Holly, Thanks for the 40/40 thread again. The table looks great! I'm going to need a free pass as I'll be taking it easy this week.

                        Will be on the DL for a few days due to an achilles tendon injury, so will need a pass this week. I'm hoping it doesn't sideline me for too long. PJ

                              Holly, I would love to play this game but I don't know how. I came over from coolrunning last month. I assume this is for people 40-49? I have no idea how to make those columns for weekly runs. Is that taken from our log? Excuse my ignorance. I'm looking for comradrie with fellow masters.

                                Hi gang. I won't have 40 this week due to racing a 12k on Saturday 01/19. It's also my birthday. The race is a hilly one and it's at Norris Dam State Park in Tennessee. I'm done running until the race and I'm at 26 so if on race day my WU/race/CD equal 10 miles, I'll check in at 36. I'll report actual results Saturday evening ..... when I'm 56 years old. Big grin
                                At the end of the day, be happy with where you are and what you've accomplished.
