Well, I don't run until Wednesday, but figured I would start the thread. OH! I completed my first tri this past weekend, report is posted up in race reports section.

Have a great week of running ladies!

Did my first run of the week today - hill repeats. Eh. The route I had planned was 3.5miles with one long hill, and two short hills with the long hill repeated twice, short hills 3 times. But they decided today was the day to repave my road, so I had to improvise. I can't gripe too much, though, because once they get done I'll have nice cushy asphalt to run on, which my knees will love. Overall, I got in somewhere between 3 and 4 miles, running up the hills and on the flat, and walking down the hill.

How are you gals doing?

Well, I ran 3 miles last night on the treadmill (it was raining). I went 3 miles in 32:40-10:50 minute mile.

I have a 6 mile run scheduled for Thursday. For Sunday I have a 25 mile bike and 3 mile run.

It's a pretty easy week for me. Otherwise, I have been biking and swimming... of course.

Great job on the hill repeats BT! If I can ever get a solid base, I will look at working on speed work. But for right now, it's all I can do to get the base miles done-slowly.

I've got a cold. Whine whine sniffle sniffle. So no running for me yet this week. My body has decided to take this rest week stuff seriously and make sure that I can't train by filling my head with gunk. Uggggg!!

10K Group run again... we are having 28°C weather so it is a bit hot for my taste. And they don't run in the flat all the time so I was fighting even a bit more than last week.

The heat will really be something for me to overcome... I hope we won't get another killer summer.

Wahine, you'll be back at it in no time, I'll bet. You're so strong you'll kick it in the fanny after sufficient rest.

Alpinerabbit, I too dread the heat. I wasn't running last summer, so this will be a new experience for me here in Utah.

I hope it doesn't kill my desire to run!

Ran yesterday, nice and easy (still in recovery/easy mode). Developed what seems to be a "knot" (?) in my calf after about 2 miles and it's still there. I think it's my leg rebelling after Saturday. My ineptitude at running uphill creates much calf distress, and I did an awful lot of uphill running (and walking) Sat. I may try running easy again on Thursday. Long run planned for Fri.

So far pretty boring this week, 3 miles yesterday (plus 12 mile ride), 40 minute tempo run today, probably another 3 miles plus 12 mile ride tomorrow (or strength + 12 mile ride), 5 miles Saturday, 10 miles Sunday. I might turn Saturday's run into a 30 mile ride + 3 mile run brick instead, but I'm afraid that might kill me for Sunday (eh, I could always take Sunday's 10 miles easy).

I've been trying to spend time on stretching, which has been really productive, I feel much more loose when I make a point of stretching well. The only area I'm having trouble with is my shins, or whatever you call those muscles. I can't figure out how to stretch and truly release them.

Hi Guys,

Yoda sorry you are not feeling well. Hope you are back at it quickly.

I am on an easy week, so I did a nice 4 mile trail run today with some pick ups thrown in. It was unstructured, and relaxed.

Nothing epic or exciting, just nice.
