MIRAGE-We Minnesotan's are tough. It was 54 this morning when I went out on my run. I saw a guy wearing shorts, no shirt rollerblading, another girl in a tank shirt and shorts running, and bikers along with short sleeves, etc. It was balmy out.
Unfortunately it's not going to last. Snow is in the forecast tonight and tomorrow. Anywhere from 1-5 inches expected along with blowing and drifting snow. By Thanksgiving, it should only climb into the 20's.

But, for now, I got out for a nice run! emoticon

After 4 days of treadmill workouts, I got out for 3 1/4 mile run. Temp. 10 with a wind chill of 2! Tried out my new winter running tights! The only thing I shouldn't have done was run on the trail. Saw another person running it this morning and thought why not? Why not? It's uneven and frozen and under the snow I didn't know if there was ice. Ended up turning around and getting back on the road which was a little frosty, but I could deal with that.

Close to 40 tomorrow with possible rain. I will get out unless it's freezing rain or its pouring. It's a little too cold to be running outside in the rain.

Have a great Friday!

Went to Run Club last night, tested out my new Transcends, had a cautious safe run, and really loved the ride. I actually had to get used to them but after I finished that 5K, I was rockin' it! (Oh the temp was around 56 degrees, which made for an easy run!)

We've got a windchill of 2 degrees! 60 would almost be too balmy for running here!

I've been on the treadmill all this week. I will say my legs at the end of the day and first thing in the morning aren't feeling too bad. I'm taking it nice and easy. I'm waiting for the air temp. to be in the teens or 20's before I get outside. This time of year is when I wish I worked mornings instead of afternoons.

The weekend is getting closer. Temps in the 30's! Unfortunately freezing rain is also in the forecast.

Well, we're getting hit with a blast of cold air today. Our high will be 60 degrees! Seriously, after living here for 6 years, I've definitely become a warm blooded Floridian! I'm almost embarrassed by it....almost!

Good morning,

After being sick for three days I should be able to get in a little jog. Here`s to feeling better. And allowing myself a break without feeling guilty.

Good morning!

After a pretty no exercise week, my plan is to get out today! We'll see how that goes. Temps hopefully in the low 20's.

Have a great day!

Okay Thanks,
I guess I am a competitor by nature always have. Slow and steady is better in this case. I just want to have goals to keep me motivated to continue.

Elaine-You are doing great, but I wouldn't push it. Trust me, you don't want to end up with an injury that will set you back. I'm not sure why you want to increase your speed at this point, but you will get faster with time.

Hello,

I had a question. I am running my 5K already at the end of my week 4 training, should I be concentrating on getting faster or running longer. I still have week 5 to train for but I am already there running 40 minutes 3.85 miles not with ease but it went pretty well yesterday. Thank you for your input.

A great day yesterday!

5 mile run. (I did take about a 5 min. in walk between mile 4 and 5) I got all of my work done at home. We are ready for that Winter whatever it might be storm.

Have a nice day!

MIRAGE-let me guess. 60's maybe upper 50's.

We're looking at snow Sunday night into Monday. emoticon

On a happier note, I ran 5 miles yesterday without having to walk at all. It was a slower pace than I used to do but I will take it anyway.

Rest day today. (From a workout). I will be doing a different kind of workout cleaning up the outside here and at my moms house.

Have a great Saturday!

"Cold front" coming through Tampa Bay this weekend! I'm doing the Honeymoon Island10K with long compression pants tomorrow then wearing a wetsuit on the swim leg of the TriRock Clearwater Triathlon on Sunday! I'm too embarrassed to say what temps we'll be having here in the Tampa Bay area!

Layers, and more layers next week! emoticon I am not looking forward to that! I bought a new pair of winter running pants, but I didn't think I'd get to try them out this soon!

Yesterday was a walking day! It was really windy and a bit cold! At first I thought I'd do a run walk, but after the first 1/4 mile run, I realized I was overdressed for running. I was fine for walking. In fact, I could've had something on my face when I walked into the wind.

Today is going to be the last mild/dry day this week so of course I will get out and enjoy.

Have a great day!

I've been able to get out and enjoy the mild temps. we've been having. Can't say the runs are that great. I did have a decent run yesterday. Managed 5 miles with just a couple of short walks in between. It looks like I may be running in snow soon. emoticon

Good Morning!

Thanks MIRAGE!

The weather is changing here. The temps. are falling and the winds are cold. Starting to do some layering which I'm not fond of. I always feel like I can't move as well with the extra clothes on. I need to invest in some arm warmers.

Have a great Thursday! The weekend is almost here. Time to change the clocks already. My evening runs will be coming to an end.

I also have learned something from each of my races. I'm not going to be doing any for awhile right now, but I'm not giving up. I will get out and run and walk when I need too. Physical therapy is going well. Haven't really seen any results yet but it hasn't been that long. I'm staying positive that next year will be a much better year for running.

I learn something at every race I do! There's nothing better than to take wisdom from every challenge you accept! I still remember what I learned from the very first time I did this program in 2011 AND each of the three times I've done it since then! You can do the same thing! Stay strong, stay focused, stay active in this Team, and own your goals!

I've been doing trail runs this week and I'm really enjoying them. So much easier on the legs to be able to run on a softer surface. I'm planning on hitting the bike path though sometime this weekend.

My run groups have every level of runner you can think of. We support each other. We become educated runners & have the opportunity to reach our personal goals. No matter the personal speed and distance goals, they can be achieved.
I highly endorse run clubs wherever possible!

As I have the Longleaf Triathlon on Sunday, I will do a slow run tonight at Run Club to stay loose! After almost four years of running, I'm still amazed at some of the words that come out of my mouth!

I had a situation that left me angry and a bit stressed. I ran it out for the first time since I joined SparkPeople on Oct 16, 2010! Yes, my SparkVersary is right around the corner! A new Tri bike or wetsuit would be appreciated!

It worked. I will totally cleanse the air today!

I'm close to massaging my Half training into my Tri training! I'm actually going to do a Half on Nov 2, 1 week before my final Half of the season, TriRock Clearwater Beach, on Nov 9. I will start pool swim training soon and continue bike training!
Uh, I'm so confused!

My goal for today is to get out for a run. I'm not looking at distance. I haven't been out in over a week. It's only in the 30's right now so it's going to be a cold one. I'm done running 5k's now so I'm going to focus on slower sorter distances so that next Spring I'll be ready to tackle those races again.

Have a great Sunday!

In spite of my allergies acting up, I ran a steady 5K with my Run Group last night! It was the first run in over a month and a half that I ran with no pain. I also insured that I stretched after. I'm running easier tonight with my other Run Club tonight, Gonna do it with walk run intervals just to be safe.

Feeling better this morning. If all goes well and the rain holds off, I may attempt a run/walk after work today. Stinks to be sick especially because of someone elses carelessness.

Looks like my 5k isn't going to happen this weekend. A group of us went out for dinner sat. Night and all but 2 came down with some sort of illness. Health department is thinking norovirus. It is nasty. Feeling a bit better right now, but I guess we will be contagious for days after this. Not sure when I will feel up to running this week. Pretty much stinks. I had plans for this week. Oh well. Maybe it's the break I needed.

Beautiful weather this weekend!

Although I spent the majority of it inside working, I did manage to get a nice trail run in Saturday morning. I need to do those more often. My legs handle them much better. If my orientation doesn't last all day today, I plan on going home and trying to get out for another run today.

Have a great day!

Good Morning!

PT went well yesterday. She gave me some stretching exercises to do a couple times a day. She wants me to do these after I run. It was very interesting and informative.

I get alot of good advice from so many, but sometimes it's nice to get a plan catered just for me. Plus I'm taught the proper way of doing things.

She and my Dr. have strongly suggested I take yoga so that will be in my plans for the Winter. I'm determined to get past this.

Another long day at work!

Have a great day!

I'm so fortunate to be a part of a run community withe some of the best elite runners in Florida. They support, encourage, & share their experiences in all aspects of this healthy journey! They come to me when I'm working out injuries and share their experiences. Everyone will experience a leg issue. They teach me how to safely get through it. Priceless! Even virtually, we share here. That's the beauty of it all!
emoticon
That's why I constant remind everyone to share their experiences in this program during the appropriate week forum. We help each other in this process. It only makes us all better for it!

Enjoy your run!

I discussed my issues with my dr. And he wasn't sure what was going on. He seems to think that it's from my job. Standing for long periods of time will cause your muscles to be tight. Although I walk around during the day, it's probably not enough. It's just going to be nice to be told how to properly treat what's going on instead of self diagnosing.

It's good to hear that I'm not alone with knee issues. emoticon

Beckyanne, I totally get it. Yesterday, I wore a knee brace on my left knee and a compression sleeve on my right calf. Looked like I just got off the crash wagon....but I finished. I've been dealing with this for a month now. Now all I can do is embrace recovery. I'm rolling my calf out, taking anti-inflamatories, icing, and making safe decisions. Stay strong.

2 mile run, 1 mile walk and another 2 mile run yesterday. It was a beautiful day.

I start physical therapy tomorrow. Hopefully it'll do the trick.

I went out for a walk yesterday and was walking up the street. I must have turned wrong because I pulled a muscle again! This time it's the other leg. Now both legs stink! I did stretching before heading out too. I'm getting very frustrated. I've got a couple of 5k's that I was going to run yet this year, but I think I will just do the one. I'm doing it only because I can get my son out to do it with me. The rest of the year, I'm going to focus on going back to square one. It's just that it's so hard to go backwards after all of this time.

I see my Dr. tomorrow and I'm going to ask him to refer me to physical therapy. Hopefully they can point me in the right direction.

It's a rainy morning. Shouldn't be a total washout though.

Have a great day!

We have a running group here also that I belong to. I'm more of a run by myself person, but we share alot of info.

Today is the local HS Cross Country meet so I'm going to be headed there to cheer on our team.
I really miss attending these meets.

A beautiful weekend ahead!

Get out and enjoy! emoticon

I went to Dunedin Run Club last night even though I wasn't running due to my calf. Sat with my Tri training partner, Rob, as he just did a bike ride. He's doing the Augusta Half Ironman next week. We talked about training in the future. then when everyone returned from their run, I spent time discussing training with a Tri Sis of mine, Margie! We discussed bike training. Most excellent discuusions!
emoticon
That's why I encourage finding run groups to join. It's great to have support & resources. I do suggest visiting a few and, hopefully, finding a fun, friendly, helpful group. Here in the Tampa Bay area, all levels or Runners & Triathletes share info and support each other. This is the best community I've ever been a part of. I hope you are fortunate to find the same!
