Ran in the wind last night - no rain and in the low 60's!!! Only 30 degrees this morning and temps still falling - really high winds last night - dogs were up and didn't let us sleep much so I'm a bit groggy this morning. emoticon

Go Rich Go!

Rich - cool if you make the maniacs! Guess I'm just envious at the mileage you are able to sustain... I'm healing up all sorts of little niggling strains, etc. and keeping the mileage low right now. Hoped to be all healed up by now, but think it's going to take another 3-4 weeks of low mileage. Sigh... this getting older stuff is just a pain sometimes.

Kimmie - you are a racing fiend this year! The zombie mud run looks amazing. Couple of friend want me to do the dirty girl this year - maybe even my prospective daughter-in-law, so I might get talked into it. I'm still doing my miles for $ for registrations/clothing/shoes this year, and at the moment I'm about 300 miles in debt because of my race registrations! So - holding off on anything new until I'm out of debt.

It's very hard to understand in the beginning that the whole idea is not to beat the other runners. Eventually you learn that the competition is against the little voice inside you that wants to quit. - anon

Someday you will no longer be able to do this. Today is NOT that day!

Ran again today, it was so nice and out and it is supposed to get cold again, so I went for it.

Carol, RnR USA is my first Spring race, I couldn't resist! I have 3 more in April/May and then I start back up again with Halfs in August. I will do some 5Ks, a 5 miler, and some mud runs in between :) I am signed up for a Zombie mud run with some friends in June, and I am so excited about that one!

I hit 50 miles today, woot! Running the Marathon didn't hurt my numbers lol

Thanks carol my next race is in 17 days. Kind of aiming to just stay race ready this year. Will be qualified for the maniacs if I get through that and the marathon the week later.

Really warm this morning - record-setting 63 degrees! Very windy though, as a front is coming through and temps will drop tonight. Hoping the rain holds off until after my run with the group tonight! Wind would be one thing, but wind and rain could be ugly.

Rich - whoot! whoot! on the 200 mile month!!!! That and your streak is awesome!

Kimmie - congrats on getting that run done. Didn't realize you are racing again so soon. I need to sit down and plan out my training for the 1/2 in May and the full this fall.

Back in training, woohoo
I ran 3.2ish miles today and am so glad to be back! It was a little brisk out, and my lungs are mad, but my legs are happy! Next race is Rock n Roll USA Half in DC in March! 46 days to go :)
I am also just a few miles away from hitting my goal this month!

Was just not feeling it on the treadmill yesterday - too many treadmill runs in a row I think. Planning to get out with the group rain or not tomorrow night. Hoping the wind does not come back, as that is what seems to really make or break a run. Anyway, but the TM run short, but did 3 1/4-mile hills in the run. Feeling it in the quads today!

Kimmie, I' m giving it another couple weeks before I restart training... fun to anticipate laying outthe schedule though. The easy running is letting all the little niggly injuries heal up.

Actually above freezing today!

tomorrow marks the day I start training for this year's Half Marathons. Recovery os *over* hooray! I am doing P90X in the morning and a few miles on the dread mill in the afternoon. It is too cold and slippery to run outdoors! we are supposed to have warm weather during the week, so I can run outside!

Super cold again this morning (3F). I'll probably be indoors again for my long run this weekend. But should be in the 20-30's during the week so am going to bring the outdoor stuff to work and try to do my runs outside. Need some air!

I'm getting tired of the treadmill... Very cold and slick roads the last few days - and wind chills well below zero. Usually I don't mind the treadmill but too many runs in a row and you start to feel like a hamster.

The funny thing has been at the fitness center - lots of January newbies and they all think I'm some sort of phenomenon... They can't believe my age (over 50, dear God! - and I can touch my toes!) and that I run (I'm feeling like carp doing 3 slow miles) - I'm a "beast"!!!! It's rather amusing to get all this admiration when I'm feeling tired, slow and bloated with the extra holiday 5 pounds! Does make me realize how far I've come though - wasn't that many years ago I was like them, and unable to walk briskly for 5 minutes!

Rich - I'm a bit envious... my body will not hold up to daily running! I cut my mileage and days per week this month because knee and achilles were being issues all December... only that 1000 mile goal being so close kept me from cutting back sooner. It's taken 3 weeks and new shoes, but I'm starting to feel things heal up.

Fleet Feet pre-emptively cancelled their run tonight. I was glad they made the decision a day early instead of last minute like they usually do. Also saved me from having to make the decision myself. It's COLD! So I guess frostbite/skin damage from the wind is a real issue. So - treadmill at lunch and a little less mileage - and a free evening!

Rich - you are off to a good start for you 2013 mileage goal! Especially since this is the hot weather for you!

Lazy day yesterday - lunch at my MIL's, but managed to eat less than 1000 calories while there (I know, it doesn't sound like an accomplishment, but at her table it IS). Back at work today - hopefully less stressful than last week! I'm getting too old to pull 16-hours days...

Kimmie - that first run after the marathon is the pits! Good job getting out and getting re-started.

Rich - your streak is amazing! Congrats! You've earned the right to be proud!

Ran for the first time since the Marathon, I didn't have a run scheduled, but I just had to get out there! It was in the low 40s, big difference from the 80s I ran in last Sunday! My legs felt super heavy after mile 2, so I cut it short at 2.9 miles. I was aiming for 4, but I will take it! My pave was even good, and I wasn't checking my watch, just running easy. I start officially training for Rock n Roll USA next week.
Rich, hope you got your coffee!
Carol, 8 on the TM would kill me, you go girl!

It was Goofy weekend. I cannot even imagine running Goofy, everyone who has run it, or its equivalent are my heroes!
Next year I will stick with the Princess Half, although I am seriously considering running a Full in May of 2014!

Really windy last night - brought the real-feel temps down into the low teens during my run. DD's ex-BF ran also - really weird to be running with him (nice guy and all, but it's still weird). Super stressful at work, so was glad to get out.

Glad I registered for the Boilermaker in July already - sold out in 3 days! 14,000 runners for a 15K.

Rich - I totally agree that running long takes you to a different place. I always feel renewed in my soul after a really long run (my really long runs are just shorter than yours LOL)

Kimmie - isn't it scary to see how people just jump into these things without training or educating themselves? Medals should be for finshers in my opinion! I don't care if you walk or run or take extra time, but you should finish to get the medal in my opinion. See my blog about the Beast of Burden race and unprepared/uneducated runners...

Give you the medal if you dont finish - well that makes it pretty worthless dont it.

So was it Goofy weekend? If so my one day run was 7.3km short of the Goofy and I did it one day lol

Thanks Carol and Rich
Carol, Disney def. does not advertise these things, we heard this from a medic that was not employed by them. They were super big on hydration, water being poured over you/refilling bottles/drinking but alot of people were blowing it off, which is never good! We had to open ourt bottle and drink before we could leave the finish line area, because so many were dehydrated and still not drinking. It was crazy! Many didn't even train, since Disney gives you the medal even if you don't finish. It was an amazing experience, and also a major eye opener!

Got in my workout yesterday in spite of the crazy workload this week - running after work tonight. Registered for the Boilermaker (huge 15K in Utica in mid-summer). Registration was about 80% sold out in only 2 days! I don't really like crowded races (14,000 people on a hilly course in late July) but this one is a regional icon, so I wanted to be able to say I'd done it at least once. Confirmed all my deposits and plane flights for France in September!

At this point race registions alone have me $330 in mileage deficit! I won't be able to buy anything until at least April! (I confess, I did buy a Boilermaker shirt... It says "no sweat" on the back - but the writing only shows up when the shirt is wet with sweat...

Rich - you are really getting into this distance thing!

Kimmie - in weather like that DNF means Did Nothing Fatal.... had not heard about the deaths! Sad - and not good advertisement for Disney. Glad you finished safely and had a good time.

Way to go Rich!!!!

I walked too much before the marathon, lol

That being said, after stopping for a lot of photo ops, riding Expedition Everest at the halfway point, etc, I finished in 7:12:51
over 5000 people got swept, two people passed away :( it was crazy hot and humid, and I am glad to be able to say I finished! I am very sore, very happy, and considering a non-Disney marathon for 2014

Have pulled up super good.

Slightly sore adductor's but nothing else other than a couple of smashed toes. Raring to go for the next ultra. Who new the marathon distance would not seem so long after all.

Next race for me is the Maroondah Dam 50k. I am so in love with Trail running now.

Whoo Hoo Rich! Great job on the ultra!

Work has been really stressful the last 3-4 weeks. Gotta love year-end/start tasks! Working extra hours, etc., but so far haven't sacrificed any workouts. Ran TM at lunch yesterday and hoping to do stretching and strength today.

Sorry Guys.

Well Sunday was my Ultra and I rocked it out. 56k in 6:49 with about 1300m of elevation gain.

Awesome event. Pulled through it well.

Next event is another 50k race.

Got in good but slow run yesterday. Even warmer today in the low 60's! Beautiful rainbow when I got up. No run today though - had to go into work for a couple of hours. Had to do a big presentation last week and the prep time put me majorly behind on ohter work.

Trying to pay bills and clean out my office tonight.

Kimmie, I' m glad the 5k went well.I' ve got a friend doing the goofy. It does sound like you are really ready to go.
Dee - sorry the trail run got cancelled but 14 miles of mud does not sound like fun.

Warm here today- in the mid 50sin january in Buffalo is weird. Trying to psych to run outside. Still icy spots on some of my favorite routes so will have to adjust,but probably should take advantage of the weather.

Nice run last night - windy but warmer and a new person ran and chatted the whole way. I'm finally not the last person in the group! Seems petty, but it is nice! New shoes were really cushy.

Kim - too bad about the yellow hair - but Tink should be a brunette anyway... (brunettes unite!) With the wings you will fly through the race.

Good luck Kimmie! The costumes sound really cute - pictures? I actually have Tinkerbell also - used it last year for the halloween run, but ended up taking off the wings.

Got the confirmation from the tour company about the Marathon du Medoc - and while on the phone with them Fleet Feet called to say my shoes are in! Talk about a coincidence. Will pick them up when I got for my run tonight.

Ran the New Year Race 5K in downtown Los Angeles Saturday night. Recovering from a cold but I still did it! This has sparked some renewed energy for running so I'm signing up for a couple of warm up 5Ks in Jan/Feb/March and a 10K in April. My goal is to run my first 13.1 in October.

Busy day yesterday - undecorated the house, caught up with bill-paying (boy did I over-spend for Christmas), and got in a DVD workout. Tried Coach Nicole's video (won it off a spark bonus spin). Between that and Tony Horton for 10 minutes I have stiff legs this morning.

Kimmie - how fun you are doing Disney with your daughter. What are your costumes?

Kimberlang - more power to you for doing Insanity. I did one workout last summer and had to give up - too much jumping for my old legs to take.

Busy day at work - but did get in 2 DVDs and some yoga at lunch.
DD leaves today to go back to Georgia. I'm sure I'll need a long run tomorrow to lift my mood. I miss her already and she hasn't left yet!

Kimmie - smart plan! You could do multiple 5K's for years to come.

Ran at Fleet Feet last night - tried out some of my new blinkies. Icy part of the way, but the main part of the park was clear. DD and her sort-of-ex boyfriend ran also. He's a new runner, but made it through the almost 4 mile route. She leaves tomorrow, but he now has a job here and says he'll be showing up to run.... feels a little odd, but hey, I'm not going to discourage someone from running!

Tricia - how much of a newbie can you be if you are already doing 1/2 marathons! 500 sounds really reasonable with that type of racing schedule. Where are you running?

Atlanta - my daughter is now down in Georgia at UGA (I'm up north in Buffalo). Which marathon are you targeting?

Rich - you are off and running (pun intended!) I'm impressed with the 2013 goal.

It's very hard to understand in the beginning that the whole idea is not to beat the other runners. Eventually you learn that the competition is against the little voice inside you that wants to quit. - anon

Wow! You all have such high goals! I'm shooting for 500 miles this year, including 2 Halfs and 8 other races, yet TBD. I'm still a newbie, so I think this is realistic for me.

Just dropped my registration in the mail for the Marathon du Medoc in September! Registered for the Cleveland 1/2 in May - so here's the plan for the year, assuming all goes well!

January - rest/low mileage to fix all the little niggly issues. no races
February - start to build up mileage again - no races
March - Shamrock 8K March 2, Bengal 5K late in the month
April - no races
May - Greek 5K May 17 (maybe), Cleveland 1/2 marathon May 19
June - Corporate Challenge -3.5 miles
July - Broadcasters 5K
August - Police Chase 5K
September - Marathon du Medoc, September 8
October - recover...
November - 8K Turkey Trot
December - run easy

Here's hoping life cooperates...

Kimmie - 13 half marathons in 2013.... what are you going to do when the years mount up? 2020 could be a super busy year!

Becca - sorry 2012 was a rough year fitness-wise. Here's hoping for a happy and healthy 2013.

Rich - you are a beast!!! (In a good way).

Anthony - welcome aboard! How fast are you trying to get?

Mileage for 2013..um.more than 2012 which will not be hard to do! It was a rough year fitness-wise.
:)

Looking forward to running more, and eating less. Going for a nice 500 miles (10 per week with 2 weeks off) but would LOVE to hit 1000! Will go chase the mileage thread...

Mileage for 2013...
my goal is 614, one more than this year,lol. But I think that with training for 13 Half Marathons, I might reach 750. That is my prediction!
Happy New Year, stay safe!

Welcome to the new year! New mileage thread is up now too.

I challenge you to "predict" your mileage for 2013. Doesn't have to be a hard-and-fast goal, but a prediction based on what you plan to run. Should get you thinking and hopefully happily anticipating the runs of 2013.

I'm guessing 1000 again.
