12.13 miles this morning. 3.5 mile warm up. 5x1 mile at 5k race pace of 6:36 with 1/2 mile recovery. Splits: 6:33, 6:35, 6:34, 6:35, 6:36. 1.5 mile cool down.
Busy weekend. Lots of sports stuff and parties. Soccer games for kids and 3 kids had x-country meet.
Wow! Your 5k pace! You might take home a good bit of hardware if you did some 5ks. But then with all of the mom's w/ strollers it might be a distraction. They would run the wheels off of those things chasing red hot chili peppers. The strollers would crash, piles of toddlers in the road screaming, "come back Mom".

I ran 4.06 this morning although there was more walking mixed in than usual. Just wasn't in the mode.
I got an email from Holabird Sports about huge discounts on some shoes so I checked it out. Even after the discounts, the prices are just insane. Here is the New Balance 2040v3 marked down from $399.95 to $199.95.http://www.holabirdsports.com/holabird-deal-days/new-balance-2040v3-mens-graynavy.html
$400 for a pair for shoes that my cat is just going to chew on? You've got to be crazy.
But do you know that those $400 shoes were made from materials irrigated with water from the fountain of youth?
I'm somewhat back to running with still walking. Today's run-walk was much better than expected. But still a ways to go. I think Rob had done his 5 in the time of 2 of mine.
I did not get to Phillies game on Friday. I had 2 row 1 right next to dugout tickets in my cart. But I could not remember my password. By the time I got it reset it, poof they were gone. Probably a good thing. Phillies only had 2 hits and lost 4-0.

Fast 5k runners are usually done when I hit 1.25
I for one am glad to read you finished your run/walk today.
In an out and back I can't believe how quickly I see those fast ones running back!
always fun tho when that happens. I get caught up in cheering the leaders and forget how bad I hurt!

I try to trip the older looking ones.
Power walked and now resting a bit. Need to shower and get moving.
Have board meeting this evening and not looking forward to it. Please send me positive vibes.
We need an emoticon for positive vibes.
Yeah, we really do. And one that indicates support besides hugs.
Lawyers are involved!
Hi all. Today is a run day but I'm not feeling it at all. I'm going to switch with tomorrow and do abs and arms today. And tomorrow I'm going to be cranky because it is supposed to be humid and just an all around awful day to run. But it will make me a better person. right?
Right, in only a way a runner understands.
That 5k pace is hot, Rob!!
A cranky Achilles for some reason. Was running very peppy last night but at 2 Mike's thought I had better call it quits. Will have to rest today and maybe tomorrow. Don't want to but I have big 5k plans soon.
Yep! Back yo heat and humidity here too, bit the mornings are pretty sweet.
Went to dentist this am. My hygienist was an awesome runner, encouraged her to re-start.

You ran 16 miles? 2 Mikes
Tomorrow is my turn to host the county elementary cc meet. After practice this afternoon I finished marking the course. I got most of it marked yesterday.
Eight miles this morning.
