The good kind, of course.

Ran 6.2 miles the other day, without stopping. Don't know my time but I felt like my speed was pretty good. I just decided to go out and run, around some neighborhoods I knew. i was hoping it would be 5-6 miles but the fact was that when I got back I still felt pretty fresh so I was worried it would only be about 4. Drove the route with my car and it turned out to be a freaking 10K! Whoo! What a good start to the week!

kaopectate?

sorry, could not resist.

10 k?? That's pretty good. Keep up the good work.

Today is the 9th on my calendar. Why is our running week starting on Tuesday and where do I post today's run?

Today was my second run since spraining my ankle (2.32 miles @ 10:16 pace). I'm really dismayed by how much my running has suffered from the forced time off. I increased my distance and improved my pace since Thursday, but I've got basically 4 more runs before the triathlon and I don't know if I'll be able to get my distance back up to 3.1 and pace back down near 9 minutes.

**note to self: injuries suck; don't do that again!

MDHS...that's probably my fault. I goofed on the title last week (it should have ended on the 8th) but I couldn't correct it. So I think this is the right thread (unless we're moving our week to beginning on Tuesday)!

Injuries do suck. But don't let your head get the better of you about your ankle! It is what it is, and I know that you will be just fine in your tri. You need to believe that too. And you'll have that little helper adrenalin going for you on tri day.

Do what you can, and don't set yourself back (says the woman who nursed a bad ankle for months because she wouldn't back off).

Due to infernos in Idaho and Utah, our air is verrrrry smoky and bad. Add to that the heat (yesterday was the first day below 100 in several days...it was only 97!), and...well...you can guess what that's doing to my running. I did get out this am for a 6.3-miler, up high (though I wasn't out of the smoke

). Hopefully it will start to clear out in the next couple of days, though I will still have to run in the am due to the temps.

Since I'm just starting to keep track because my running is more than my walking, I did 3 miles today! I thought I was going slower because I was sore from a ride yesterday and it hurt. It was also hot. I don't normally sweat but it was running off my face

Suffice it to say I thought I was going slower and I ended up finishing about 5 minutes before I normally do! I am not a runner but it is getting not as bad.

*Shudders* Yea... uuummm... the title of this thread hits too close to home. I missed my race on Sunday... due to... uuumm... not wanting to live in a Port-O-John. Thank goodness I stayed home too... apparently there were NOT ENOUGH Port-O-John's at the race!

Anyhoo... I wish some of you ladies lived near me. I am running my first 10 miler tomorrow. I know I can make it, but company would be appreciated. I can't seen to loop anyone I know into doing it with me.

A friend will be riding the path though, so he's going to make sure I don't get abducted.

Well, they say you can take a week off and after that your fitness levels start to suffer.

Although, I would kill for a 10:16 minute mile! But that is besides the point.

Injuries do suck. I'm so paranoid of getting one because I know 1 injury, even a simply one, takes you out of the game for weeks or months.

My friend, you go out and you run, therefore you are a runner! Sorry, you can't hide it! It's really not THAT bad. Say it out loud:

I am a runner!

And it only gets better!
