    Re: Tue Dec 11 Boomer Runs

    Pro, you and me both.  I ran between 3-5 miles several days a week for a dozen and a half years and was perfectly happy. What happened to me?    !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/wink.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/wink.gif|border=0!

    Wiped out today. I just want to go back to bed. I tried taking my heartrate before I got out of bed this a.m. per Ribs' suggestion and got 58. Doesn't seem right.

    Debating whether to run today. I'm really afraid I'm losing the progress I've made toward a good marathon and feeling sorry for myself today. Last week was only 35 miles b/c of being sick. (whine, whine, sniff, sniff).

    Choover - great pic.  Cute kiddo captured in a beautiful moment.  My niece just got back from Disney and she took a great pic of her almost-4-year-old daughter with Cinderella.  She's one hard to impress tough cookie of a little girl, but she's totally in awe of her favorite princess in this pic.  Disney magic is pretty amazing.

    Orange - great job on the 8.5!

    Easy 2 miles for me today in one of my favorite weather conditions: misty (easy to breathe) and dark (able to enjoy the every-growing number of beautiful Christmas lights in the neighborhood.) Almost balmy 44 degrees here in the Philly burbs.

    Only 15 weeks and 1 run to go in the 10-miler plan! (Yikes!)

    NIce runs and stuff to all Booms!

    Thought perhaps I may have to get my run today inside on the treadmill. But as luck would have it, the ice melted off (for the most part) and I got 4 easy mile outside. 10:30 pace 32F degrees. A bit of a wintery mix of light snow and drizzle but really nothing significant.

    5 miles on the treadmill, 1% incline, at 7:51 pace.

    Had to limp the last half-mile: left knee area acted up. &lt;grrr&gt; It didn't seem to be my knee, exactlyrather just below the knee, on the inside of the leg. No idea what this thing is, which has tormented me for months.<br /><br />Dark Horse<br /><br />--

    Just stopping in briefly to post today's run.

    7 miles at 6 AM in the foggy, misty and frozen morning--20F. The run was zippy-52 minutes. It must have been my Teva trail/ice shoes. Love 'em and the gription is awesome. On the go since then and now in DC where I am chairing a conference for the next three days.

    Sorry about the leg pain Dark Horse. You get going steady and then it seems to flare up on you.

    When I "see" you all next time, I'll be in Ohio and Holly and I will have trotted around her running loop! Can't wait!

    See you all next week some time.

    Steve,

    Wow, wonderful. Thanks for the pic

    Very tough winter conditions today and I had to do 6X1K intervals plus warm up and cool down alone.

    There was 6 inches of soft powder but the worst part is that there was the brown very light sludge that is the runners worst enemy. Really slippery stuff that makes you feel like your on an outdoor treadmill. Anyway, I posted a tip to others on what to focus on, on those tough days.

    Awful driving conditions too...careful everyone

    It's probably a little late for this, but Soundie, stay home!

    thanks for the tips, Tall.

    Stevep, he's precious. here...


    tw... :-).     are you?

    where's ekiM??

    Tim. you know, on a TM that last half-mile is optional. it's not like you're stuck out in the frozen tundra. sheesh. nevertheless, {{{your knee}}}. could it be a medial coronary ligament tear?

    I hope to see all of you on the other side.  If not,  well, I'm not sure what to say.  I guess I won't go there.  and anyway,  if you can't trust a big corporation, who can you trust??  ;-]

    4 TM miles for me in the hotel.  I'm in Madison, WI, and the weather has been wild.  3 TM M yesterday, all at 9:05 m/M and 0.05% incline.  I've seen runners on the sidewalks in full winter garbthese cheeseheads are tough.<br /><br />DH, get that pain looked atit doesn't seem to be going away on its own.

    See you on the other side,

    Re: Tue Dec 11 Boomer Runs

    4 miles on the treadmill in the hot hot hot stuffy old gym I go to. Wish the bigger, newer facilty was closer to home, but oh well. I lost almost 3 lbs in sweat in under 35 minutes. Amazing. Then some ab/core work. Planks till I got shakey.

    Felt a weird pain in my hip... inside, and it went down the inside of my thigh to my knee. If I didn't know better (which I do), I'd say it's arthritis kicking up again. Might need to increase the glucosamine/MSM again. My mom and grandma both had both hips replaced. I am so hoping to avoid that fate... (I do know that outside hip pain is most likely bursitis, and if it's in the front it's most likely hip flexor. Inside hip pain is most likely osteoarthritis... per my mom... experienced arthritis/hip replacement sufferer and ANP in previous life). Rats.
