    I ran approximately 3 hilly miles outside today on my lunch hour at work. Temp was a perfect 75, overcast, and VERY windy! I had a hard time even running with the headwind, but it felt so good! Right as I got back to the gym and was stretching outside, it started raining, so I went back into the gym to finish my stretching. Within 1 minute, it was POURING!!! I thank my lucky stars that I finished up in the nick of time.

    4 miles this morning - 2 loops around a nice pond near my house, running on the dirt/pine needle bed feels good vs. pavement. First run on my schedule since the marathon that I didn't have to go easy, felt good to push it a bit.

    Well....
    Do I post this as a ride report or a run report...cuz it was both!
    A friend and I both signed up to do a duathlon in August. She's already freaking out because she had hand surgery in December and really hasn't ridden her bike much at all lately (60 miles year to date).
    So today, we did a multisport day - ride followed by a run (I have a duathlon on the 14th, a hilly one that's a 5K, 24K, 5K, so I'm freaking out in my own way, as I'm not doing much running and somehow have to be in shape to run an equivalent of 10k!).
    We rode through Rock Creek Park - 24 miles at a pretty leisurely clip - her chasing me most of the way - and the 3.5 miles running from her house - me chasing her most of the way. She's really gotten the running thing going lately, and it remains a struggle for me.
    I need to change my attitude on running, but not sure how, other than to keep signing up for these crazy events which force me to run for training.

    Good luck, Limewave!!!

    I spent the last week with DH in Zion National Park. I didn't run at all, but I did do a fair amount of hiking--about 34 miles--much of it up and down steep grades. Fro those familiar with the Park, we hiked Emerald Pools (lower and upper; middle was closed), part of the West Rim (from the Grotto to Telephone Canyon and back), Observation Point, the River Walk, Middle Fork of Taylor Creek (in the Kolob Finger Canyons), Canyon Overlook and the Watchman. We also rode one day and walked in town to and from our hotel a lot. I'm now pooped!

    I haven't posted lately, but I have been keeping up with my training. 18 miles yesterday and 36 miles total for the week. Next weekend is 'the big one' (20 mile training run), and then the following week is the last with high volume before I FINALLY get to taper. I can't wait for the taper because this body is ready for a break.

    28 days until the marathon!

    I had a great run today! A 7 mile run after an open water swim. My breathing was easy, my running loose, my HR low, and my pace better than average for the distance. I wish they could all feel this good!
    I'd rather be swimming...biking...running...and eating cheesecake...

    indysteel, sounds like you had a good trip to Zion. We're going this coming weekend. We plan to do part of the traverse, drop at Wildcat and run down to the road at the Angel's Landing TH and then maybe up the east rim a bit, fatigue factor depending. One of these days I'd like to do the whole traverse, realistically as an overnight. I love running and hiking in Zion.

    I am very, very glad that next week is an easy week for me. I've had three very big weekends. I am quite tired!

    Wow, Yellow! I had a hard enough time walking these trails! You're a stud. The WR trail was really muddy (the kind that will suck your shoes off) along Telephone Canyon and there was still a small bit of snow along one short stretch. Of course, that's liable to change with the coming week's weather.

    But, boy, did we love Zion. It was a great trip.

    7.6 moderate miles yesterday 5*14 min run/1 min walk, longest run since the marathon and first on pavement (vs dirt) still having discomfort in my left glut/ham. My coach says I just have to be patient, buts its been almost 4 weeks now Followed-up with 16 mile recovery paced ride. Good thing I have 6 weeks still til the first tri of the season.

    It's raining AGAIN. So it was back to the treadmill this morning, in an almost empty Y. Guess it was raining so hard that a lot of the regulars didn't want to leave their warm, dry homes... Started off with 5 miles at an 8:45ish pace, then cranked it up and did one mile in 7:30. That's my fastest mile yet!

    Now it's stopped raining, and the temperature's dropped into the 40's. Wish I hadn't washed and put away all my warm bike gear last week...

    Almost there, limewave! Hang in! You'll be AWESOME!

    I raced the local 12k on Sunday, not my best race, but I was very consistent and it was pretty easy. 1:08ish. Last year I did 1:04. Next year I'll beat 1:00 I really should have pushed, but it was super crowded and I wasn't watching my watch very well. I always walk the second time with friends after jogging to catch up, so it's a 4 hour day for me all told. It'd be awesome if I had to at least run half the course the second time, if not almost the whole thing, but because there were so many people (over 56,000) my friends had not even started when I finished. I could probably run it twice and still catch up, but it'd make a 22 mile day instead of a 15 mile day

    A pretty good picture,

    3.5 miles for me this morning, went out early to beat the rain which is expected. Still keeping the pace slow as I try to heal my hamstring. My coach says that all my runs should be recovery pace until I heal - which is so hard.

    Didn't bring my ipod this morning to guarentee that I wouldn't get rained on and it worked
