3000 yards in the pool today, with a long climb down the ladder of 500 (8:40), 400 (6:45), 300 (4:52), 200 (3:12), 100 (1:30), 50 (0:40). 100 EZ between reps. Tough workout, the kind I'll replace with a solid tempo run when I can get back up to speed on land.
Wildchild -- my 13-year-old daughter's been expressing interest in getting into running, or at least walking, on our treadmill, and so I know, it's a really good feeling! And yeah, you have to walk that fine line between being encouraging enough, but not too enthusiastic, or else you "foul" the coolness of them wanting to do something on their own. Good luck to your daughter!
No run scheduled for me today, and it's just as well, because if there ever could be a sproinkless day, this would've been it. Even caught myself nodding off at the wheel coming back from my pilates session this afternoon, going at 55 on the highway! Not good at all...
All this talk of underwear's only reminding me that I need to do laundry... like I said, utterly sproinkless here... !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/frown.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/frown.gif|border=0!
12 miles at a pleasant cruising pace. Snow flurries, overcast, rhodendron leaves were curled and the cat didn't want to go out. Puddles on the ground didn't melt today.
I've had some symptoms of overwork for a couple days - scratchy throat, sleeping badly, among other things.
I intended to run 5 X 1 miles today. But mid-way through the first one it was apparent that though I might survive, I wasn't going to thrive. So I put the watch away and settled down for an enjoyable ramble.
Ya, sure thing vista...
Oldguy, funny, I told that one to my wife and daughter and they hooted...
Well, I ran indoors again as the darkness is moving in so quickly this week. 3.5 on the treadmill at 1.5% incline. G'night Boomers all..

You Lucky Dog.
I was trying to do a hill work out like SR has been teaching us, but dang I always get carried away.
14 mile total
up and down Whitetop Mt twice on FS road
elev 4500 at bottom, 5500 at top.
AHR 153, 11:23 avg pace. not counting a coupla breaks
I don't feel sproiky...or even sproinky. 6 miles (3 out and back and extremely windy...BOTH ways!) tried to make it a tempo @9:4x pace. McMillan sez I oughta be quite a bit faster....maybe it was the wind. I do think the effort was there and even though I'm not a HRM guy, it was about 160 when I finished up.
Wildchild and Orangemat – woohoo for your DDs showing an interest in running (and Wildchild’s DD for her PSAT scores). I’m hoping my DD will run with me someday. DS doesn’t really have much interest.
Took off work today at 3:15 and took the kids sledding. The snow will melt by Friday, and we don’t often have enough snow at a convenient time for me to take them, and by the time I have the time (like the weekend), it melts. DD’s favorite thing is “horsey” – where I lay on the boogie board on my stomach, and she “rides” down the hill on my back. Lots of glute work helping her and the sled back up the hill.
I don't know where to start.
great runs, swims, pictures.
underwear storage tips.
wonder if Larry & millbot were able to meet.
PT this morning.
Skip, if you're still around, did you say on your marathon cooking day that you couldn't run? was that a schedule thing or are you still hurt?
neat story about your son. a good thinker.
Concise team hill workout tonight.
9 x 0.1 mile reps with a 26 foot gain (min 62 feet, max 88 feet). The average grade was 5%.
I averaged 50 seconds/ rep = 8:20 / mile.
It was snowing with an average temperature was 29.8 deg (warm enough for shorts).
The relative humidity was 81.8% and the wind was from the southwest with a speed of 2.9 mph.
I love my Garmin!
Econo, you remind me of my dad. He still has to show me how he can tear off the corner of each week as it passes with the little perforated corner thingy. Cool, dad... !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/rolleyes.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/rolleyes.gif|border=0!
6 decidedly unsproinky miles on the treadmill tonight. I had to leave work early to take my boss to the airport (well, didn't Have to, but he did ask nicely) so missed my mid-afternoon snack and last 12 oz glass of water before I headed to the gym. I was hungry when I started, and I think a bit dry. Sure made a difference, if only mental. Also, depending on how I feel tomorrow, I might take Thursday off. I haven't missed a "scheduled" run (i.e., one I meant to do) in at least 6 months, so a measly 4 miler would be a good one to drop. I just feel tired these days!
