A 7.09m@10:41 recovery run with DW. Pretty humid day here in CT. Next week is a "recovery" week on Pfitz's training plan. I still do not see how a 59 mile week counts as recovery! :D

My run started early again, but the temperature was very nice with mid-60's and high humidity. My legs were tired after yesterday's run and my joints were aching (old age). I ran 7.8 miles in 6:56 pace.

I am planning to skip a day (Wednesday) to get the spring back in my legs (hopefully). I will be visiting Strongsville, OH this coming holiday weekend and hope to get a run in with Ron (if available).

It was hot and humid between 8:00am and 10:00am when I ran this morning. 14.07 miles in just over two hours. My legs are feeling tired too

edit - oops changed miles from 13.07 to 14.07!

Easy 6 miler. Felt better than I thought after yesterday's 15 miler on trails. Good week for me -- 62 miles.

Hey Eric, in answer to your question from yesterday, I think I'll probably miss out on the Iron Turkey this year as fun as it was last year. It was one of my resolutions to run a 1/2 marathon this year and I found a good low key one on a nice course for Nov. 18, 3 weeks exactly before USATF XC.

14 miles on rolling aslphalt at 8:12 pace. I've been doing Sunday long run following a key workout or race on Saturday for several weeks now, and it seems to be working out well (knock on wood). Felt good today.

Please, OstranderRunner; I don't want to hear any more complaints about old age. You are still a kid ;)

12.57 miles for the day.

Very nice cool sunny morning run in Birch Run, MI.
8 miles in 59:03 (7:22). Too bad this weather wasn't around yesterday morning for The Crim!

PM: 4.55miles 33:50 (7:25) back home on the North Park Trail Loop. Nice and cool here in Cleveland also.

Not a good result from today's 5k race. Conditions were great but I managed to pull a groin muscle about half way through the race and I had to stop and stretch it at the half way point. Stupid injury. I was running along a trail and got surprised by a pile of fresh horsie doo doo on the trail. In mid air I stretched my right leg a little too far to not land in the middle of the ca ca and I tweaked my groin, which has been bothering me for the last year or so. I carried on, but at the half way point we turned around and it tweaked again, so I decided to stop and stretch it out. After a couple of minutes it felt OK, so I resumed running and finished the race. No PR this time, although I was doing fine up to that point. No biggie anyway....it was not a goal race.

My daughter gave it a go and managed a 20:42, after a summer of no running. Not bad for her first attempt back from her bone strain. She will be sub 20 in another month or so I am sure.

Best of luck in the half, my wife and I celebrate our 29th anniversary that day... XC nats are north of Cincinnati this year, aren't they?

I did my Q2 run, 15 miles total: 6 to warm up, 5 tempo and 4 with tapering speed to cool down. When I pressed "stop" on the watch it was 2:00:00. As noted, the weather was beautiful, clear and low humidity.
