Happy Day Peeps! It's currently 65 degrees in Texas!
6 miles for me mid-morning with the Lady on the hills of Coventry Woods. Had a bit of a vim and vigor for the first big climb, made it to the top in just over 10 minutes which is a relatively good time for me, but couldn't sustain the effort for the whole run. Still another decent run for me this week. Grey calm and chilly, temps in the mid to upper 30's. In other words, perfect December running weather.
Nice! Your weather sounds great too!
Glad you both made it to the top and enjoyed the hills.
Aw, sounds fantastic all round.

Walked the dog and the Golden Boys were outside with their owners. We let them play until they tired each other out. My clothes are covered in Golden hair! I can tell that my housekeeping skills are not up to Golden ownership, and I call upon the forum to remind me of this should I ever want one of those gorgeous affectionate animals. I lifted weights, usual thing, and am now gearing up to make bourbon balls with a friend.
They are the prettiest, sweetest dogs but yeah, I couldn't keep up with the hair.
My housekeeping skills are not up to me living alone.

Well, there is that!
I'd like a collie , but have stoyshort for the same reason.
That's supposed to be stopped short.

I googled that, thinking "hmm, I am not familiar with this breed..."
Someone needs inform auto correct that stoy is not a word.

7.7 miles - Took another CR on Strava, had to push myself on a long climb.
2112¢ (7 coins & 1 Federal Reserve Note)
56º & sunny at 1200
Nice run! Very profitable too.

I figure it was karma since I found that FRN while picking up garbage during my cool down walk.
I had a CR on Strava today too! But only because I went on a bike path which was recently completed.

14 this morning at a leisurely 8 minute pace. 32 degrees, overcast and no wind. Perfect marathon weather.
Nice job! Leisurely
Hi Frank! It was nice weather!

Oh yeah, shorts and tank tops. Crazy weather!
7 miles with 5 of us and then 2 of us did one more mile. It was 60. Very humid but a nice breeze.
Bonus mile! Nice.
Good for you going an extra mile.
I agree with the others - I'm impressed by your ability to tack on the extra mile. For me that would have been mentally tough - once the group run was over I would have been inclined to head home!
I wouldn't have done it if my friend wasn't there to do it with me :) We did stand around for a couple minutes after the seven and I'll admit that wasn't a good idea. My calf was tightening up and everything.
The humidity somehow surprised me this morning.
1 mile around the "track" at the gym + some shoulder & hip exercises.
A couple of coffees @ Starbucks with my running buddies afterwards.
Great Way to start the day! I hope you enjoyed catching up after your run.
A very nice Sunday indeed!
Sounds like a fun morning!

4 miles and a little yoga. 25 miles for the week for the first time in eons!
25 is a good busy life stretch goal.

7 miles as the sun rose on the eastern horizon. I want to start running more often in the morning. Today it was mild, just around freezing, but later this week the big chill arrives. Hope I can still convince myself to get out there. It ain't like I don't have the clothes for it.
Some days are better for morning runs. I like the sun coming up as opposed to it getting darker while I run.
Oh, I love running at sunrise.
Sounds like a great run!
Ten years ago, I gradually shifted from an evening runner to a morning runner. Now, I may only run in the evening once or twice a year.
I do both types depending on what day of the week it is. I love them both that way.
A not-great run for me today. I was aiming for an hour of run 3 minutes/walk 2 minutes on the paved trail running around the perimeter of Stanley Park. I had a cramp in my shin act up fairly early in the run, so I walked for a while and then tried running again. Seemed like it had something to do with the cambre of the trail I was on - when I was on an angled trail, my shin was unhappy, but it was less unhappy when the trail was level. Anyway, I managed to be out for an hour, albeit with more walking than I was hoping for, and the shin cramp did lessen over time although it never completely went away, and a Sunday morning in Stanley Park is still a precious gift so, there you go.
Flying home this afternoon with much to process mentally: I visited my dad for a couple of days and then did a very intense three-day training session focused on developing my self-knowledge and leadership skills. Lots of mental and emotional stuff that needs to settle over the next little while.

Sorry your run was not spectacular. But you stayed out there and got some exercise! It sounds like you had a heavy visit. I hope the training stuff is useful.
Sorry about the run. Impressed you stayed out there though!
Thinking of you. That's a lot.
I'm sorry your shin was bothering you. I hope it bounces back.
That camber can be a killer.
10,000 meters on the rower, and some stretching.
Then scratched a bunch of nagging items off my to-do list- got a huge wreath hung outside the second story my house and didn't fall off the roof
, put up some lights, paid some bills, went to Home Depot and am now the proud (and slightly confused) owner of a small chainsaw. Now I'm taking a break and listening to the soundtrack of Hamilton
Be careful with the chainsaw.
You've accomplished a lot. I opted for a nap. I don't regret it. I just know I need to get busy with decorating before Dec. 23rd.
I used to not decorate until at least December 20. But over the years I've decided it's way too much work to put up all the crap just for a week, So if I don't get it done early, I don't do it!
Though I'm pretty proud of myself for not buying the huge inflatable Santa pig at Home Depot.
Didn't any of your neighbors own a chainsaw? We are the chainsaw owning neighbors around here. Everyone borrows it.
So yesterday I ran with our Saturday group and even showed up early for extra miles. I ended up with 9.5 and felt pretty good. Afterwards, we hung out at the specialty (as in small portions and expensive) coffee shop for way too long. The coffeee and the way they make them is excellent. It's just not an everyday kind of place so I enjoy being there when I visit.
Today was my group run. I am grateful we have moved the time so I can sleep in a little and not have to worry quite so much going forward about how dark and cold it will be setting up. We did a new 5 1/2 route I came up with and there were no issues. Yeah!
I love setting up running and socializing. Tearing down not so much.
Sounds like a good weekend of running!!
Group running is the best!
No run yet, but I may try to get on the treadmill for a few miles this evening. Crazy busy day with 3 games coached, some Christmas shopping, raking leaves, picking up an asthma inhaler for my son, and a visit from the in-laws.
Basketball: Lost 26-15. The other team had a couple of very good shooters, and against our zone defense they nailed several early shots from the outside. We switched to a man-to-man defense and that evened things out and the rest of the game was pretty even, but by then it was too late. My team is making progress, especially some of the new kids. The other team showed good sportsmanship and it was a fun game even though we were on the losing end. My post-game thought process as a widowed single parent: (a) I like the way the other team played - good sportsmanship; (b) that's probably due to the coaching style of their coaches - I like their coaches; (c) [walking to the car] The female coach is kind of cute...hey look, she's not wearing a wedding ring. Hmmmm.....
Futsal: Won the first game 9-4, lost the second game 7-4. The second game got a little feisty on both sides - one of my players got a yellow card and so did a kid on the other team. Post-game I congratulated and thanked the referee for a job well done handling a game with a "high degree of difficulty"
Date report from last night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAp9BKosZXs
And she runs
. There will definitely be another date.
Yay! That sounds like a good date!
A runner? Definitely another date!

Loved the "date report"
I hope the 2nd date is even better than the first.
After doing 7.5 miles yesterday with no issue with my leg, I wasn't sure what to do today. But, it was PERFECT.....about 57 when I started and I was meeting a friend, so we did our regular Sunday 10 miler. Leg still feels good, but I will likely cross train tomorrow so not to over do it.
yeah!!!! That's awesome!
Glad your leg is feeling better.
3 early miles with Leonard Cohen , after a late night Xmas gala.
Then, later , 2 miles with DW
Good job getting it done.
