Nice run and intervals yesterday rocknrollrunner. Ran 9 miles with a friend of mine within which was some speedwork 6x600m@5K pace. Having somebody to do intervals with makes them a LET less painful! Not enjoyable mind you. Sort of the difference between a root canal and just getting say four teeth filled. :D

twocat - you inviting us to church? My sermons fall between a root canal and say 4 teeth filled. :D

5.5 easy but progressive miles this morning beginning at 9:11 and ending about 7:30 paces. Will pick up another 5-6 easy tonight and then a long run in the a.m.

good runs to ya

20:43 miles for the day.

12.43 miles in 1:25:48 (6:52) on a cloudy morning. Screwy distance I know, but I had xx.57 for the week so far, so I had to even things out (pretty anal huh).

The temps were still around 70 this morning, but the humidity was just brutal once again. A front is moving through the area today and should blow out all this moisture in time for Saturday's 5-mile race (But wait...It's already Sunday according to Twocat. I must have missed it :eek:).

8:00 miles in 51:57 (6:29) this afternoon. Boy, it was one of those runs where I was firing on all cylinders and the miles just clicked by. Sunny, breezy and no more humidity!
I have decided my new Adidas Adizero PR's are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn, even though they are a half size to small (new one's are on order!).

Good runs to all!

A short recovery run today, 4.6 miles in 39 minutes under fair skies, it was so lovely out I could have run forever. Legs felt fine today after yesterday's CV reps, so I must be using my common sense as Tinman likes to say. :)

I just signed up for the Run Like The Wind 5k on Saturday in Hines Park, starting at about Nankin Mills if I read the course description correctly. Woo hoo, I'm finally racing on a course without killer hills, first time this year!

Good luck to everyone racing over the long weekend. I am taking a vacation day tomorrow for a "four day weekend." !!

I road my bike to work today (between 11 and 12 miles.) Will ride it home, and then go for a five mile easy to recovery paced run.

I have a 10K road race in a couple weeks.

5 miles slow to EZ for me today. Hopefully the last day of humidity for awhile. Trying to freshen up the legs a bit for the same 5 miler Ron and RnR Runner are racing on Sat. See you guys there!

6 miles easy today. Still humid but much cooler. Legs felt pretty good after yesterday's interval session so hopefully this will bode well for Saturday's race. See you on Saturday Ron and Livin' the Dream.

I have 7 easy miles planned tonight, and I may take tomorrow off altogether! I have a 12K race planned on Saturday that I hope to do well at.
I ran a 10 mile race on 8/18 and was disappointed due to intestinal issues. :(

7 easy miles on grass loop -- about 8:30 pace. Might do 4-5 more later this afternoon. Scheduled for 10k race on Monday, but thinking about doing 5k instead. We are in a heat wave now and I really start to notice the temp about 4 miles into my runs.

Twocat - I've always looked forward to track workouts. "Train, don't strain" as the saying goes. If you are dreading them, you aren't doing them right, imo. You don't need to knock yourself out to get results.

Today's weather was much cooler, but the humidity was very high. My running route was through the streets of Dublin, Ohio; so it was fairly flat. I ran 6.6 miles in a 6:48 pace.

I visited my massage therapist today after the run to work out some knots in my IT Band and hamstring. It was painful, but will be worth it come this weekend. :eek:
