Bing Cherries, I have an addiction to them and have been eating bags of them, probably washed out all my electrolites. Why do I do this to myself? Fortunately, I am wise enough to bring along toilet paper and my handy buck knife for digging latrines while on the run. I think I will knock of the cherries and try my long run again next week.
    Good Runs All, Larry


     



    Funny post, Larry. I guess you probably didn't notice the irony of the last line of you comments. LOL!

    Re: Wed Jun 13 Boomer Runs

    Jumping back in to say I had my annual physical exam today, and what are the odds? I weighed exactly the same as I did on virtually this same date in 2006 and 2005, and was 1/2 pound lighter than in 2004.  My doc said I was "perfect" - couldn't find a thing wrong with me.  However I find it ironic that my height and weight (72.5", 184.5 pounds) give me a Body Mass Index of 25 - which means I'm overweight.      !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/biggrin.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/biggrin.gif|border=0!

    I'll get the bloodwork results back on Friday afternoon and find out if my HDL has poked its head over 40, I'm hopeful that the marathon program I followed (well, at least the first half of it) this past winter/spring and the bicycle commuting of the past 5 - 6 weeks have been more effective in bringing it up to a safe zone than last year's 5k and 10k training.

    I also mentioned to him my family history of celiac disease (which could be related to the low cholesterol counts) and he offered to set me up with a referral to a G/I specialist to have me tested. No sense in putting that off any longer.

    Good morning,

    Karl, it was raining in my part of town when the alarm went off. I waited until it quit before running thinking that it would be a nice, cool run. Wrong, it was 75 degrees with 100% humidity for my run this morning. I probably would have been cooler running in the rain. Anyways, I got in 5 miles @ 9:35/mile pace and was only a few minutes late for work.

    Also, Karl, I didn't get in to NYC Marathon either. I'm not all that disapointed since I'll be running Chicago in October. As you know my main reason was to make sure I run it sometime in the next few years, so I entered the lottery just to make sure that even if I don't get in for the next couple of years, they'll have to take me in 2010.

    Paul


     



    See. You should have dragged yourself out of bed. I never even thought of the lottery that way. So they'll have to take me before I'm 50.

    Labduck, Vista and Larry, thanks for your suggestions. I printed them off and will check it out. I'll be there from Sunday thru Thursday... would be cool to meet up with Vista for a run. I really don't like the idea of running there by myself...

    6 miles at the track in 85F heat (but only 26% humidity).  Total running time slightly over 48 minutes.  Included 4x800m in times ranging from 3:18 to 3:30 (AHR 140 to 160).  Hammies a little tight tonight, so I guess it did some good  !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/wink.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/wink.gif|border=0!

    2nd part of run this evening.  3.66 miles.  Nice breeze, not too hot.  Avg HR 126, max 131.  I think my body's adapting to this strain I'm putting on it.  21.36 miles already this week.  I hit 800 miles for the year!

    extra flexibility will help you lick that pf dave, and cure it too.  good luck.

    nice tri la tortuga.

    step away from the ammo egret.

    the smell of pine forest gave way to diesel generators as the entire mountain area here went without power for 24 hours. interesting time at a dark bar talking to a stealth fighter pilot who wants to retire and go fishing in alaska. let's send the whole air force with him; sounds much more relaxing.

    8mi today with 5 at marathon effort, which turned out to be MP+20 sec/mi  at 8600 feet...  need more oxygen.

    Re: Wed Jun 13 Boomer Runs

    Another late night run here and I have to say I am starting to enjoy these late runs. What a way to end the day! 3 miles @ 9:45, a nice comfy pace. No hint of knee pain, getting excited about the possibilities here! (Down girl!)
    My parents are starting to get over the jet lag slowly and finding their way around the house.
    Good night everyone.

    Re: Wed Jun 13 Boomer Runs

    Seems like the activity on 40/40 thread has slowed in recent months, so all the action has shifted here? I'm a slow learner (not to mention a day late!).

    Went to PT on Monday for lower back issues, which have been bothering me for a few weeks. Wow! The osteopath a couple weeks ago got me through the worst part, but the PT really worked it out. I'm almost normal again.

    Wed. did my first "workout" in 3 weeks. An 8 miler along dirt paths by the river, where I did 3 min, 4, min, 5 min, 4 min, 3 min (2 min jog recovery) starting at 10k pace and finishing at 5k for the last couple reps. Felt solid. 5k planned this weekend.

    evan...soccer does take over your life for a few months here, doesn't it?
