    Re: Wednesday's runs

    Did 6 miles after work today. I tried the Sport Beans. Ugh, never again. Way too sugary and gave me the worst stomach ache during the run. First 3 miles sucked and I felt like I was trying really hard. On my 2nd loop around my neighborhood, I focused on other things than running and ended up coming in at 58:50, which is great for me.

    Re: Wednesday's runs

    I did an hour with the trainer today.  I'm fairly certain I won't be able to sit upright tomorrow.  I didn't do any additional cardio afterwards.

    Boy, this trainer has to be good, but is he cute and then, is he worth it?

    Re: Wednesday's runs

    I ran 5 miles with the young Marines today.  It was a tempo run of sorts.  I started in the back with the slow ones and caught up to the fast one by the end of the run.  First mile was around 9:30 and then I kicked it in and caught the guy by mile 4 blistering a 6:05 on mile 4 before slowing to a crawl of a 10 minute last mile.  I will run a slow steady eight in the morning and work a half day before catching the plane to go see my Dutch Omi!  That is right Charlotte I am adopting me for you.

    Re: Wednesday's runs

     

    Ok Im jumping onto this bus before it runs me over, Ive been lerking way too long    . I did 6 1/2 today after work about 80 with a nice breeze, feeling pretty good. It better to run in the morning  (5am) but for me alittle nerve racking because the road are so dark and curvy waiting to be run over one day.   Let see what tomorrow brings!!!!!

    You're adopted, your beer is in the fridge, your food is ready, just tell me what you guys want for breakfast.  Do you guys drink milk or juice?  I only have a little since we don't drink it, I just use it for coffee.  Have a safe flight.

    Re: Wednesday's runs

     

    Hey, Silvereagle, glad you stopped lurking.  80 and breezy sounds good except for the 80 part.  60 would be better.  I know what you mean about being on the road before it's quite light.  Just remember to run facing traffic so you can look the driver in the eye when he runs you over.

    What is this?  6 mile run day?  I did 6.25 in nasty humidity.  As my month has been, I was scrambling with work right out of bed.  Fortunately I worked from home today and didn't waste time in traffic -- scoot'n out of town!  In fact, I've ben STUCK AT BWI AIRPORT SINCE 5PM.  Another hour and maybe I'll be on my way to Florida.  Looks like I'm going to be doing my 6 miles tomorrow more along the line of 3 or 4 miles tomorrow.  No way I'm getting up at 6 or 7.  My flight that was to arrive at 9:30 is now set for 2:25 AM -- and then off to the destination.  And I've only had 5 or 6 hours sleep each night over the past week.

     

     

    I need a straw -- but with beer on the other end though.

    Towson,

     

     

    Now that's the spirit!  Enjoy your run but don't do it at a loss of sanity!  Wait I think we already determined we are all insane here anyways.  SOunds like you got it under control.  LOL

    Re: Wednesday's runs

    Well, the storm that ripped through here killed my run last night, by the time it cleared I had to go see family for dinner...and then once dinner ended the storm kicked back up. Oh well. Three + trainer tonight.

    Re: Wednesday's runs

     

    Back after some unexpected travel to rescue my stranded son with car problems in Atlanta.

     

     

    My left glut (butt) was very sore and stiff so I decided to keep it indoors yesterday.  Did 45 minutes on the treadmill with the incline set at 6 most of the way.  Jumped off the treadmill and did 25 minutes on an elliptical machine.  Felt good and plenty of sweat.  Not as many miles as I'd get if I was running outdoors over that time but the outcome I wanted was achieved - a loose glut muscle that I can run on tonight.

     

     

    Last one in for Wednesday, anybody else?
