I didn't run but saw no one started a new thread so I decided to.

Have great runs today ladies! - I swam my mile and a half instead

I am scheduled for intervals tonight and my legs are SCREAMING angry from the 8 miler Saturday and some mountain biking yesterday. But my mind is also upset, the running will do me good. If the legs are too sore I will just do tempo. Got to remember to put batteries in the MP3.

I did an 8 mile trail run yesterday. I had a tough 57 mile ride on saturday where I let me nutrition just about kick me....left my legs feeling like spaghetti on the trail run, but I made it though. Enjoy your runs!

Awful 25-minute run in the neighborhood this morning. Ice everywhere!!

First time in double digits! w00t! I'm getting such a feeling of elation on my long runs, each time I pass a new milestone.

Another windy day. Once again my out lap was 14 minutes longer than the return leg. Mostly the wind, but I also felt like finishing strong.

Aggie, when my mind wandered from my own body/meditative state I started thinking about other people's bodies

and specifically your HR on your long runs... you mentioned having your DH along for company and "being able to talk." You weren't actually conversing with him the whole time, were you? That would definitely rob you of oxygen and send your HR soaring. FWIW, on my long runs I inhale to a count of three steps and exhale the same and my AHR today was 157.

Only on lap 8 when I was starting to lose my mind. If you look I had to run 10 mind numbingly boring laps to get to 8 miles. It was dark. Just the path lamps, his bike light, the feral cats, white tail deer and my steps. The MP3 batteries went out on lap 4. About 8 I was just trying to keep going, I was tired and bored so I started talking to him but no not the whole time and not even the whole .8 mile lap. At several points I lost count of laps! I gave myself incentives like "you can stop at the water fountain on lap 3, 6, 9" but then I couldn't remember if it was one of those laps!

But FWIW on a normal run I hover around 170-175. It was very cold Saturday evening and when it is chilly I find my HR is a little elevated. I am really hoping as I get myself back into shape my HR will come down because the runs really wear me out. When I ran all the time a few years back they energized me but now I just want to come home and hit the couch.

Had a nice short run today, the first since my half-marathon a week ago.

It felt great, and it was so beautiful outside.

But now my knees are acting funny, especially when I stand up from a seated position. Dear Partner (a doctor with kin. training) will have a look tonight.
