Hi Team, I'm not sure what has happened to April but it seems to be running away without me, I don't seem to be getting much done!
Not been to the gym as much as I would like, but intend to make it tomorrow as I am off work.
I ran almost 5 miles tonight, I did not enjoy it, my feet were hurting and it just seemed such a struggle. With hindsight I should have changed my intervals from 3 min/30 secs to something a little easier but truly, it never crossed my mind at the time. emoticon
I think I'm starting to panic a little about my 10K in a few weeks, although I don't know why, I don't expect to PR but would like to do it under the hour.

yay Lisa. my daughter is allegedly going to run with me occasionally, since she's signed up for a half marathon with me in october.
Katie, glad it's going better.
Marsha, sounds good.
Stacie — good luck.
hi everyone else.
have been massively busy, did not run for 4 days, and am not thrilled about today's long run. actually, if it weren't that i appear to be running a 20 k in 10 days (sort of last minute decision), it would've been fine. i wanted to do 14 miles and I didn't. i could have but i was just tired and worn out and my shoulder blade/traps hurt some and i just didn't feel like running anymore at 10.9 miles — mainly i think because i've been so busy and am tired and also because i started too fast … and ended up going way too slow. also, i thought it was nicer than it was when i went out, and short sleeves and no jacket was a bit cold for 48° — windchill 44. warm enough if i'd been better dressed, but i wasn't.
when i zonked out, i sat down for 2 minutes and walked the remaining 2.81 miles home. not terribly slowly because i was cold. i kept considering starting to run again, and kept deciding, oh well, i stopped, i'm done.
otoh, i ran through the parc florale de paris in the bois de boulogne, for the first time ever, through blooming tulip and peony and azalea gardens … and i feel fine and in a good mood, but in a spoil-myself and not-work mood. so i've pretty much decided to finish by going out to dinner, having a couple of glasses of wine and falling asleep as soon as i get home. and being productive tomorrow.

Lisa, that is just great you run with your daughter!!


Ran over 6 miles in my neighborhood yesterday. Weather here in central FL is getting hotter and more humid. Time to acclimate to it.

Jeff Galloway will be here to kick off our local running season the first part of June. I'll need to decide if I want to rejoin or not; it's just $99, but I spent a lot this year on travel to my 2 out of town HMs and my daughter has to pay for child care when I'm gone any day but Saturday. If my hubby was interested, I could justify the expense, but he just isn't. I might join the group for the social aspect and do one long (10+) run a month.

Thinking that when I age up to the 65+ in June I'll be more competitive in local 5Ks. Collecting that bling could be fun, but I'll need to do some speed work. Seem to be running my 5Ks at HM pace. (I did a 27:33 in April 2013, but a 31:07 in Jan 2014; suspect I was not totally recovered from my HM, though). Thinking.... thinking.....

I really need to check in here more often. You are all so motivating! I have been meeting my oldest daughter once a week to run a 5k route. I don't have a running watch or even a smart phone (getting one in the next few months). She has a nice garmin. She runs with me even though she can go much farther and lots faster. We are trying to work it out so we can meet twice a week. Each time we've done it, we've cut at least two minutes of time off the run. Hope to meet again tomorrow. I did 3.1 on Sunday morning, but where I live there are no hills. There are hills where we meet. She really pushes me (in a good way) to push myself. The best thing is how amazing I felt afterwards. I know not every day can be like that, but hey, I'll take these great days.

I can do this. It's great to have your support!

I think I am finally over my post 10K crud. That was discouraging. But yesterday I did 5 miles/60 minutes of speed work 5:5. It really help burn off the spectacular Monday I had (not). Have a great day everyone!!

We all struggle at times just as we all triumph at others. Yesterday I did just about everything "wrong" that you could do with diet and fitness. I sat for 8 hours at work, then went home and sat all evening. I made a 1/4 batch of no bake cookies after work and ate every single one! After dinner, we went to Orange Leaf and I overloaded on frozen yogurt with fudge topping until I literally felt sick. Yikes! It was a horrible, awful, very, very bad day! But you know what? It happens. I started today with Greek yogurt and fruit, plan to walk to the gym after work for ST, and have chicken breasts thawing for supper. I realize that not being able to run is a huge downer for me, but I need to make it in to a positive.

Hope your day is full of triumphs! Thanks for listening!!

Ran 3:1 yesterday for 2.5 miles and yes, I was very slow: 17.29 min/mile. I too got the MapMyRun app, the free one and I loved it. I was able to listen to my music and finish somewhat strong. Stretching today. Am concerned about the battery life on my phone, although I have a Mophie that kicks in when it's about to die.

I am amazed at the distances you folks run. I am a long way away from that. Baby steps, The first one was getting out there by myself and not being concerned about people looking at me and judging me and noticing my struggle, which is not with my breathing. It's my legs, which feel like lead after a while. Going to get new shoes this week and hopefully that will improve.

Have an awesome day all! emoticon

Hello, everyone. I hope you have all had a great weekend.

It has been a busy one for me. Friday evening was a concert by the Austin Chamber Music Center. Saturday, I drove Friday night's violinist to her master classes at the Chamber Music Academy. I stayed to listen and then drove her home. She is from the Atlanta area. [Oops, that sounds like I drove her to Atlanta.]

This morning/early afternoon, I ran 20 miles. Then a quick shower and a small lunch and I was off to a surprise 80th birthday party.

Tonight I'm resting.

Baby: Weight.... Friday's weight at the doctor's was the same as Wednesday's weight leaving the hospital. No gain, but no loss either. I can tell she is eating more.

AFM.... Except for my 3 run days last week and dog walking I have not done any exercising. Just always making myself available..... if needed.

Tomorrow ... last hilly run and Tuesday flying home!!!

Oh..... yesterday and today - a little bit of snow - first time I've seen snow in about 8 years. LOL!!!

Went to breakfast then Iron Girl Expo with D & Lin! Met with Milestones Sports Jewelry as we are on their Race Team for several races in 2014. I will probably become an Ambassador for them as I'll wear their colors at several Triathlons this year.

We stopped for a snack break at Sea Dog Brewing Company before coming home. Now, we're taking a break then getting ready to go to our Besties' (and running bud!) Renewal Vows at Honeymoon Island then the after party at their parents' house. Sigh...another day in Paradise!

Good Morning!

KATIEKENZIE: Sorry to hear you are sick. Hope you feel a lot better soon. Good try on the 10K. BTW: Most of us here do not run 10Ks straight.

MONTY: Fun!!!

STRIVER: I know my emotions sometimes affect how I run. Good luck on your long run.

DRADDIE: Congratulations!!!! Yep that is a LONG way!

****

Another easier interval 80% HR run yesterday. I set the Gymboss for 20:40, but would run longer on downhills or if my HR was under 80% and shorter if I started a run segment and my HR was over 80%. It was still a slow run compared to running at sea level, but faster than my last 2 lower HR runs.

emoticon Hallo! Just had to stop quickly by and share that I did my longest run ever today at 16 miles! I have a very hard time keeping the pace to what I need for a slow training run so I did 1 min run/90 seconds walk. (And I could still slow it down pace wise . . .) The weather was awesome - sunny but not hot. I had a friend watching the kids, so guilt free child care! (I feel bad when I have super long runs on the weekend and my hubby is watching them..stupid, I know, but I do.)

I still have a really hard time imagining going 10 miles more than what I did today. Every run I ever do, I mentally get done near the end (be it 3 miles or 16) however, so I'm hoping that is part of it. I kept to my intervals strictly. And even got to run in an entirely NEW area so it was completely fresh!

The only downside? I listen to my phone while running - music or a book- and I have an interval app that I run on it. And I use mapmy run for the live tracking so my hubby doesn't have to know my exact route in case I got lost! So my phone started dying about 3 hrs, but made it to the end. Since I expect my marathon to a good chunk longer than that - and that last couple of hours is going to be where I need that the most, I'm a bit concerned. I have to do a little testing. I don't really need the map my run for the marathon (although it would have been nice for him to know where I was along the course . . ) since I have a gps watch. Maybe just not using that will help battery life.

Anyway, very excited and proud of myself today!

Now I need to foam roll all night, I'm sure ;P

Took D & Sis to Run Club last night! Gorgeous evening, watching the sunset on the Gulf while on the run! I ran with good friend who is an Ultra runner. He gave me guidance on a good Marathon pace and shared his experiences on a long run. I took up a slower pace to get used to it and did an easy 5K, focused on that and good form! Lin & D focused on a good 35 minute session.The women will rock Iron Girl on Sunday!

Hi all. I had my 10k on Saturday and it was not a good deal. I did it. I didn't run the whole time like i wanted so badly to do but i was getting sick and had a cough and I knew when I got up that morning I shouldn't run but I did anyway and by Sunday morning I had spiked a fever and terrible cough and having lots of trouble breathing. So I will have to use some other 10k to judge my ability. Oh well.

Good Morning!

STRIVER: Yes! I don't actually know what this dog would do, but he is a nippy little guy. He bit my husband a few years ago and DH wasn't doing anything. He has nipped at the baby's blanket and my daughter. He is an easy dog to take care of when there is no baby around. I think the dog has to go...., and I know DD and SIL are concerned.

STACIE: Hope you figure out your leg-knee-IT band issue soon and it feels much better. No fun not being about to run.

CATHERINE: Here's to another long Spark streak!!!! Hope things settle down in your "world" soon.

MARSHA: It shows such a good commitment when you run when not at home. Good for you. Sounds like a fun weekend.

JANET: I enjoy running at parks and along rivers, oceans, or lakes. I didn't mean to buy a Gymboss for the race.... just for future use.

LYNN: Yep, redecorating can be an "experience!" It will look fantastic when done.

*****

Today's plan.....
Take care of this dog - who gets so hyper every time the baby is awake and sometimes when she is sleeping.
Run and walk about 5 miles - using close to an 80% heart rate.
Do some household chores and some items on the to-do list.

Sounds simple enough - but boy am I tired by the time dinner is over.

Keep on exercising everyone.

JEAN: Such great news! Impressed with you that with all that's going on you are getting out and running, too. I have a hard time doing that when life is topsy turvy.

CATHERINE: Hope life is returning to normal. Bit stressful over here as well with the kitchen redo!

Boxes of stuff from the cabinets all over...No shows on appointments... Contractors who make bad business men.... Back and forth to home improvement centers. . . One project leading into two more projects.... Going over budget.... AHHHHHHGGGGHHHHHH !!!!!

Yesterday ran for the first time since the Shuffle. Ten days off . . . So did an easy 5K that took 41 min to finish (almost a walk! ha, ha) and did it with a :30/:30 interval. Tomorrow AM... Swim.... Can't run b/c after work...the counter guy comes in and installs the counter. Good Gussie, Irene!

First, Marsha, you were obviously not cheering loud enough for my alma mater Wildcats :(

Thanks to everyone for all of the suggestions. I emailed the race director to find out if I could get an exception, but I haven't gotten a response. Oh well, I may try to run by feel. I'm much more of a control freak by nature and love my planned intervals. That said, maybe it is good for me to take a step out of my comfort zone and see what happens.

Today, I went to the lake. It was sunny and warm (70+) with a stiff wind, and the trail was booming. There were lots of strollers, kids on new bikes and other obstacles to dodge, but I managed to do 19 of 21 40-second intervals with 60-second walks. It felt good to be out and moving.

Happy runs to everyone!

Janet

Catherine, Wishing you calm days and peace in your heart. Hope life slows down for you. I know you are doing the best with your training that can be done under the circumstances.

I was in Nashville at the NCAA basketball championship for 4 days. Ran twice and did elliptical once, good quality sessions. I felt good about keeping up training out of town. Did pretty well eating, too. -Marsha

Hello, everyone. The last 10 days or so have been extremely hectic and stressful. Thank goodness things are starting to settle down. It is really challenging to maintain a hard training routine when there is a lot of stress in your life.

Last Monday I missed logging into Spark and spinning the wheel for the first time in 1527 days. That's over 4 years and a lot of spins. My current log in streak is now 3. The king is dead; long live the king.

Janet, lots of good suggestions here about your race intervals. Since you are running the race for fun and not pace, I would encourage you not to worry too much about it. Just run by feel -- walk when your body tells you it needs a break and start running again when you feel a little recovered. You really can do it. Plus this will let you adapt to trail conditions.You really can't maintain the same constant pace on a trail that you can on a paved road.

Janet,
On your issue, I would just go out and buy an inexpensive run watch that will alert you on intervals OR just use your phone with the interval alarm on. I never used headsets when I used my phone for interval training. I think as long as you just have one earbud on and the other ear open, it's all good though.
I'm not keen on runners who put headsets on or both earbuds in during races. I will bet they don't hear when someone passes or is warning them on a pass. AND, if you are sharing the course with others, (i.e. Half & Full Marathons) it can get dicey! I've seen too many runners/walkers out there who are clueless on race etiquette. I blame race directors who don't proper brief the runners beforehand!
In any case, you need to become one with all your senses during a race.

Hey all!

I'm feeling fat and lazy. Patience, especially with myself, is not a virtue of mine! I walked for 30+ minutes at a moderate pace yesterday which felt OK. Uphill feels far better than downhill. I will continue to strengthen, stretch, and roll, but not run. emoticon

Have a terrific day!

Janet,
depends a little on how long the race is. i personally might argue with them, given that they said nothing before and you don't really have time to get a gym boss (unless you can get one delivered before). when i am particularly worried about safety (not often enough), i run with only one of my earbuds, leaving the other ear "open". you might see if they'd find that an acceptable compromise. especially if you emphasize you won't be listening to music but only to the interval buzzers, because they didn't give you the time to arrange the alternative method.

Jean — are you amusing Mister to protect Rosalind from him? have a nice walk.

AFM it is totally gorgeous here and i would love to run, but … one more urgent deadline (2 down, one to go). tomorrow should be nice too, though (and today isn't a scheduled running day, just that it's gorgeous running weather.

JANET: I would go ahead and participate in the event. Do the best you can with intervals, but just enjoy the race without worrying about pace. My suggestion would be to invest in a Gymboss. Can you hear the intervals on your phone without using earphones?

***

AFM.... everyone is home. I spent almost all of my time with their dog, Mister. Far too curious and somewhat obnoxious.

Ran and walked yesterday morning. Heading out shortly with Mister for a long hilly walk.

Hi Janet,
I get an idea that you really want to do the race--can you use a watch and do the intervals that way? I used to have a cheap Casio that would give me a beep when programmed and it was enough at the time. Or you can go without anything, sort of as a trial, to see how you would do--it could be a good exercise in listening to your body! But I would go, especially if you already paid...

Good morning team mates. I have a question/problem that I'd like your opinions on.

I have a race planned for Saturday, and I have been really excited about it since it is on a rail trail and should be a really pretty space. Unfortunately, the race director sent an email to the entrants and one of the stipulations is that they don't allow headphones. I understand that there may be a safety issues sometimes, especially if a runner plays loud music, but in my case, I use my interval timer, which is programmed on my phone.

I guess my question is this: not use the interval timer or not participate in the race?

Thanks for your thoughts.

Janet

Jean: Glad to hear Rosalind may be coming home soon!

Janet: You're doing great job on getting in all that interval training. I've ben eyeing my bike, too. Maybe a ride this weekend is order if the rain stays away.

AFM: Legs and feet still feel a bit heavy after the half on Sunday. Tried to do 30 minutes of intervals on the TM yesterday but ended up walking most of it. My right heel, which didn't hurt in the race, is now talking a bit. Maybe some soaking is in order? Anxious to go outside for more miles.

I made it to the gym at work this morning for XT. I haven't been there for almost 2 weeks, just running and walking. I put in 45 sweaty minutes doing intervals on the recumbent bike. It felt good to sweat it out in a different position.

This afternoon I will pick up our bicycles from the shop and I am hopeful that we will be able to do a short ride on Sunday afternoon. I haven't riden for over a year, so those muscles will need to wake up and get going.

Jean, take great care of Rosalind and all in Billings.

Here's hoping that you all are well and happy!

PS...you are right, Jean. You reminded me that on December 29th when I returned to SP, I could barely walk a slow 1/2 mile. This is week 14 of my new healthy journey. It is hard to believe that I can move my body so much better and that races are even a possibility!

Janet: Good job.......You have really progressed since you first started chatting here!

Lynn: A new kitchen sounds fun!! It does get messy while in progress though. Hope your GD is feeling good now.

Striver: Hurray for a 4 miler. Good luck with all those deadlines. You must be very good at what you do.... you always have lots of work.

****

Another night in the hospital for GD. Maybe will come home today.

AFM.... Another HR run is planned. Will set HR for 77% of my max. I don't think my average pace will be much different than MOnday's run.... as Monday's HR was higher than I wanted.

I've seen a lot of robins all around. I am sure these Montanians (?) are happy that spring is finally approaching. Also saw some mule deer (maybe) climbing on the rimrocks - something I do not see in FL!!!!

Good Evening. . .

Jean: Thanks for the update. Glad to hear your sweet GD is doing better! Hope she continues to thrive.

Just checking in . . . I have done NOTHING since the Shamrock Shuffle, a week ago last Sunday! Spent Spring Break with my son and family and they live in an unincorporated area (just moved there, so I was not aware what kind of neighborhood they moved into) where you need to get into the car and find a place to run and/or bike. Between unpacking and playing with my granddaughter, never got around to looking up places to run/ride. Granddaughter got sick on Wed., with a fever and she was clinging to me like crazy! Her mommy started a new job and my son was interviewing for another. So it was hard to get things done in the house, let alone find places to train.

Now I'm back home....but we are rehabbing the kitchen and have had to shop for lights, faucets, cabinetry, hardware, etc.... and...having to clear out the kitchen all after our working hours. So it has really cut into my time! By Friday, the countertops should be in and then there will be a lull with the cabinet refacing...Such a mess...but look forward to it all being done!

Hope you are all doing well and running like mad! Hope to get moving before I lose it all again!

Lynn

Hi folks! I hope that you are all doing well.

Jean, I particularly hope that little Rosalind is continuing to improve and that she gets to come home soon.

This afternoon was windy, sunny and almost 65 degrees. Not a bad day for a run, except that there were some pretty strong gusts. I ran out of time to do as many intervals as I would have liked, but I did 18 40-second run intervals with 60-second walks. My pace was slower than on Sunday, but it felt good to be out and moving!

Here's wishing happy running to you all!

Janet

Good Morning.....

First, I want to thank so many of you for your concern regarding our new granddaughter. Update: She is still in the hospital (since Friday), but might be able to come home today or tomorrow - depending upon her labs. She is now 11 days old. She has almost gained back the weight she lost. Some of it from the IV - originally in her little arm, but now just above/near her ear in her head. Her kidneys seem to be functioning as they should now.

****

COSPEC: You are doing great. Hurray for another race.

ANNWOGGER: Wow.... great 15K. And with negative splits. Hurray!!!

RUTHIET_456: I have been running about 5 years or so and 2:1s are still pretty hard for me unless I slow down quite a bit on the running part.

SMITTY4RL: Congratulations on your 1st HM.

GRANDMA125212: Hi!!!!

MIRAGE727: You are always on the go.... even when you are "resting." Hurray for your sister. Hey, when I get home DH and I are going to drive up and bike on the Pinellas Trail. Just wondering if there are any good restaurants along the way. I'll send you a Spark-mail when the time gets closer.

GETMYSELFBACK1: WTG on a healthy lifestyle and weight loss!!!

WILEE323: What's up with the IT band and hip issue? Are you rolling? Have you been to a sport's specialist?

****

AFM.... I go to the hospital daily, clean, wash clothes, and take care of the dog - a Jack Russel Terrier. I am hoping the crazy dog doesn't think Rosalind is a chew toy. emoticon

I've only run twice since I got to Billings last Wednesday. I have walked quite a bit though. My first run I tried with the dog. Well, as energetic as a Jack Russel is..... the 2 miles were pretty sad as far as running goes.

Yesterday I did get out by myself. I set my Garmin for a 75% heart rate, and set the Gymboss for an easy 20:40 interval. Well, with all these rolling roads and higher elevation than this flat world girl is used to.... my HR was often over 80%. I think I could get used to running on these rolling roads. I did not look at distance or pace when I was done - but my cardio segment was 75 minutes. Running at home almost always with little to no elevation gain, I was so surprised that my HR would drop while running downhill. That was my biggest surprise. Uphill.... now that is a whole different story.

Today, I am painting some spots in GDs room. There are some areas that the previous paint colors shows - along the ceiling. DD asked me if I could "fix" it. All I can do is try. Will head to the hospital later if they are staying another night. Also some errands that need doing.

Will check back in when I can. When everyone is home - it just is a bit more chaotic.

SB - Loads of healing, healthy thoughts going out to sweet Rosalind!

Striver - great hill work! Way to stay strong throughout!

Janet - being addicted to racing is a wonderful thing! Love your enthusiasm.

Ann - nice 15K! It's so rewarding to beat a time goal. Woohoo!

Smitty - great race! You're hooked now.

Hey Monty, Ruth, Lisa, Kristie, and everyone else!

I've gone one complete week without running to let the IT band/hips/knee heal. While it is better, I still have aways to go. Thinking my June 1 half probably won't happen unless we walk it. Did a 30+ minute walk yesterday with the kids and it was too much. Early morning workout today with a slow 15 minute walk on the treadmill and 15 minutes on the bike and am feeling good. Gradual progression! Massage after work.

Happy Monday! Prayers for little Rosalind! Please keep us posted.

I am restarting the training today barring heavy rain. At my race I found out that I can run in the rain and won't melt.

I have lost 16 lbs since the beginning of the year and 6 in the past two weeks when i really started my clean eating and being consistent with getting in a walk/run. I bought a pair of really cute cropped jeans last fall on super clearance that were too small at the time, but I would wear them one day. I wore them on Saturday. That is was the best motivation to keep doing what I am doing. You are all so helpful. Thank you!

Totally spring cleaned my room and decluttered yesterday. That was a workout. Now I just have to tackle the rest of the house.

Have a great day!

Lisa

I can do this. It's great to have your support!

I'm excited to hear that she's now with a Galloway Training Group in the DC Metro Area! I'll work with her on "The Pinellas Trail." I'll also be showing her how to cook clean, tasty, and healthy this week! I'm excited that she is starting to embrace the fringes of a healthy lifestyle! Baby steps! We started in Dec and she's already done 2 5K and a 5 Miler. More importantly, she building a lot of quality training miles! Good times.

Finished my 1st half, what an awesome day! Total time was 2:45:37, ave pace was 12:39 per mile--which betters my training pace of 13:40-47. Chilly at 29 degrees, but it warmed up to 48. Small race, big heart--with looooong rolling hills. I think I'll have to do another ;-).

Janet: Sorry to hear of your unorganized race/ I did a 5K that morphed into a 9K+ because the course wasn't marked. Glad to hear you persevered thru it!

Marsha: WTG on the 10 miles!

Jean: So very sorry to hear of Rosalind's medical issues. 2 pounds is a lot to a little one--sending some prayers your way--hope she gets well very soon.

Ann: So cool! You did great on 15K!

Ruth and Honeybeebliss: Awesome job on getting out the training!

Prayers for Rosalind!

Finish the 15K today..1:45:15. Was hoping for under 1:45 so pretty happy with that. Perfect weather. About 36 at the start 46 at the end. Sunny conditions with a light breeze. And I was 36 min for the first 5k, 35min Second 5K and 34 mins for the last 5K. I was really happy that I did not fall off the pace....Maybe could have started a little faster...but thought that was great practice for the half marathon coming up in a month.

Janet..urghh on the 5K disorganization! But neat that you were able to find the zen! Sounds like you are going to be really prepared for the next one.

Ruth...the run leader is crazy!

Striver...Wow 8 hills! I do like hills...but just the downhill parts! Ha-Ha!

Gotta go...we are having Lake Erie Perch from last year's catch for dinner...

Hi dear team mates! I hope that you are all well.

Jean are all in my thoughts. I hope that Rosalind figures out this "outside" world soon and begins to thrive.

Striver, I am impressed with your hill work!

Since I didn't get in my race-run yesterday, I did a run early this morning...watching the sun come up. It was colder this morning and my poor lungs were not happy with the heavy breathing of cold air. The first few intervals were tough and then my body adjusted. I am amazed that I did 19 of 21 40-second run intervals with 60-second walks at a pace just over 15 min/mile. I am very proud of my performance today.

After some errands, I did more heavy gardening. Lots more hauling mulch and manure and then digging it into my garden beds. It is looking good, but several more beds to go...

I also decided yesterday to sign up for another race on the Saturday before Easter. I am headed to be with my family that day, and I will stop in for the 5K on my way to their house. I think that I must be addicted to this race even thing! emoticon

Here's wishing sunny skies and smooth and happy running for you all!


Janet

One step at a time...

Jean, white light & lots of positive thoughts for Rosalind…
good wishes to all the racers.
planned to do my hills today, since the highway was closed for the marathon. since i hadn't done any for about 7 weeks (2 weeks before my half); i thought i'd start back with 6, would be happy with 5 — but ended up with 8! probably could have done more but thought that was kind of living dangerously in terms of overdoing it and possible injury. what was especially nice was that unlike previous cycles, i didm't really slow down between the first and last … and could speed up the last few strides, even. modified my method: up hill all running (roughly 1min37sec (.14 km), stop for 20-25 seconds to catch my breath and turn off & back on the timer, run all the way down the hill not fast (which was either the same or only a couple of seconds slower than uphill), then walk along another street to rest, roughly 2 min45, for .12 km. all running and walking combined, including hills and getting to and from the hill (including to the bakery) was 6.3 miles, 88 min. feeling lots more positive than when i went out. and now, ugh, back to work. DD & DH off at 2 shortish operas, Stravinsky & De Falla.,
