Sunday September 23rd boomer runs

Oh come on...

I'm starting?

Okay.

I followed the schedule this morning. 28 miles in 3:45. 1:50 out, 1:55 back.

Then I mocked my daughter as she was waking up, and I was headed to breakfast.

"I ran farther than a marathon before you woke up."

She was not amused.  12 year olds are like that.

    PBJ, you are the Man.

    I ran 6 miles on the treadmill this afternoon, 1% incline, at 8:58 mile pace.

    Re: Sunday September 23rd boomer runs

    Near catastrophe today at about the 7 mile mark of a very hilly 8 miler.  I somehow managed to step into a hole right at the edge of the sidewalk and rolled my left ankle pretty badly.  No immediate sharp pain and I managed to make it home gingerly on the hurt ankle.  I went shopping with my wife and it wasn't bothering me but as soon as I got off of it this evening it really started to hurt.  I think it is just a sprain and I am telling myself it could have been worse.
    I am leaving Tuesday for a week in Seoul so I am going to take it easy and see what happens.  I am signed up for a HM in Nagasaki at the end of next month and I hope this doesn't sideline me.  Good runs to everyone today.

    PBJ – Yowza!

    DH – looks like you’re coming back.

    Sfch – ouch! Hope it mends quickly.

    Erika – a week off running after 2 marathons in quick succession, the last one being a particularly brutal course, seems prudent to me. Hope life gets less busy for you.

    Dg9 - hoping your LR goes well today.

    8.1 Garmin less miles for me today. This bug I’ve been fighting for the last couple of days has manifested itself into a raw throat, cough, and the loss of my voice (I’m actually whispering this post), so I slept in a little too long for a long run.

    My MIL is improving at an almost miraculous rate (mighty is the power of prayer). Thanks again for all the prayers and healing vibes sent her way.

    My brain can't process unpronounceable handles, so it tries to convert them into words. I read "sfch" as "surfchick."

    Re: Sunday September 23rd boomer runs

    Good morning all,

    Nice run there PBJ...

    Still no running for me yet but I'll start again this coming week.

    Cycling for me this morning...15.96 miles of hills. I got a pretty good workout but I can't wait to get back to running.

    Breakfast and then crawling under the car to do a water pump and belts and hoses this morning....it just too nice outside to be under a car this morning...

    Good runs to all today.

    Wow PBJ - what a great way to start us off!!   I'm impressed - if that helps at all.

    {{sfch}} Ow!@ Take care of that ankle!!

    Holly - that is great news about your MIL. She is a strong lady and has such a great family to help her through this.
    Would you care to share your strength excercises with me? You can e-mail me: mkaiser at harborfront dot com Thanks!

    4 recovery miles for me this morning at 10:15 pace. VERY cool morning - so I got to wear my new Oktoberfest long sleeve tech shirt. !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/biggrin.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/biggrin.gif|border=0!

    Good morning.

    A marathon before 7am? I can't even imagine!

    Off day for me today. I'm jumping in the Corvette and heading for CT to visit my brother. I'll run there tomorrow morning.

    Re: Sunday September 23rd boomer runs

    Good morning all!

    8.5 miles in 1:04
    Met PacerChris at 5:40 this morning. We were planning to jump partway into a 20-miler today that 4 other guys were doing. I had been feeling some tightness under my left foot (PF?) since Air Force last weekend but thought it had run its course and I could handle 15 miles.

    About 5 miles into the out-and-back course I had to bail on them and turn around. I felt some discomfort around 4 miles in but the further I went the more my foot tightened up. After turning around I went another 3 miles before slowing to a walk for a mile. I picked it up to cross a street and it didn't feel any worse than walking so I finished up the final 1.3 miles at a very easy pace.

    I'll have to back off for a few more days. I don't want to jeopardize my chance to run Stone Steps in 4 weeks.

    PBJ.. That is one helluva way to start us off! Impressive.. getting out at 3:30 (and I thought 15 mi before work was alot..wow)

    <<<sarge's ankle>>>

    Holly.. it is so common to get attacked by bugs right after a marathon. Get well soon!

    5 Magical Healing Miles on soreness free, lead filled legs with Tory in 48:16 (9:40, AHR 145, 70F and muggy).
    My foot had no complaits after yesterday's 30K race !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|border=0!

    Re: Sunday September 23rd boomer runs

    Out at first light this very cool morning for 11 miles on the Clinton River Rail-Trail. I did it in about a 9:35 pace, but could tell that it was my first long run since the Crim of a month ago. Now I just need about one more of these before my HM at the end of October.

    Glad to see others of you out there running today, too. Maybe there will even be some weekend RRs to read later today and tomorrow.
