    So you're abandoning this forum and taking your 40/40 thread with you, eh?

    I only got about 36 in last week because I missed two days and had some snow/ice issues.  But I'll try to start this thread on CoolRunning going forward, for newcomers and those who haven't abandoned the site.

    I don't know how this thing works.  I saw references to DoctorWu bailing and then Holly S. started this one and said she was going to the other site (as with an actor's The Scottish Play, this is how I'll refer to it), where there's a 40/40 thread.  I don't know Wu (Who's Wu?) and it turns out that I replied to a post by Holly S. about having to pee during a marathon (well, actually, the thread was about stopping during a marathon and only when I went to post because I had stopped since I was real tired did I learn that Holly was talking about stopping to pee).  But in an effort to keep CoolRunning alive, I chimed in to say I would post here with the 40/40 thread.  My chief thread is in fact the only Boomer thread -- 50+ -- that is vibrant.  (Numerous Newbie threads are going strong as well.)  But with Dave C. of CoolRunning posting an update on fixes being performed since the transition and one of the core 50+ folks saying he's staying, there may be hope left.  In fact, I think the log-in issue is much improved just since this morning.

     

     

    Back to the topic at hand.  I was able to get in 49 or so this week, most in quite a while:

     

    • Sunday:  After Friday's and Saturday's fast runs, took it easy and got 6.22 in a light rain, in just over 40;

    • Monday: Christmas Eve. Nice weather, up the Parkway path, 7.22 miles in 53.

    • Tuesday: Christmas.  Head to the track.  Warm enough for shorts and t-shirt.  20 minute tempo; 5600m.  6.5 with wu/cd (and strides).

    • Wednesday: Ready to go but a hard, cold rain made this the day I took off for the week.

    • Thursday: Take it easy is the mantra.  So 7 at 51:55.  Ended up getting lost a mile from where I grew up but did run up a killer hill past my childhood house, and the hill I credit with making me a very good uphill runner!

    • Friday: Things quiet at the office.  Put on shorts and a shirt and headed to Central Park.  Lap plus a lower loop.  That's 8+ in 56:21, plus a mile w/u and a mile c/d on Fifth Avenue.

    • Saturday: Easy again. Had to turn back at flooded bridge.  Got in 12 miles at 1:26:30.  One mile slower than last week, but perfect in terms of training for November's race.
