That is so very funny, but if my knee feels bad that might be a good idea! I've been so swamped with work that I'm feeling behind on training.

Since I didn't complete the 5.5 miles last weekend I decided to try again this weekend and just bump the training back a week.

Went out for my run yesterday and.... SUCCESS!!
I actually went 5.75 in 1:12, so roughly a 12:40 pace. I am beyond pleased with this. The best part is it didn't feel too difficult and I was not so sore that I couldn't do anything else all day. Now I can actually visualize going the distance and not being swept!!

Nice job!!!! Doesn't it feel good to have a big number under your belt?

Did a 5k race today. It was a PR post baby, but waaayyyy off my previous PR time before I hit pregnant this last time. Not a shocker- I was never fast- but this weight is killing me. Gah.

I did 1 min run 30 second walk for first 2 miles and it went ok. I tried to straight run a bit of the 3rd mile and that slowed me down. Nike splits had my 2nd mile as fastest.

When I was faster, I was straight running, so the intervals being faster is confusing. But I'll go with it since it works!

Good job ladies! I did 2.5 on Sunday and Wednesday. Now I have a cold so haven't run since. So my goal of having done 8 by Nike this weekend isn't gonna happen. Oh well.

Rest up for the Nike! Don't sweat the miles. You'll do great.

I'm tired man. I didn't kill my time or anything but it felt like more effort in a "race" I'm exhausted!

Do y'all mentally get competitive during races? I used to but now it seems to drain me.

Oh no!!!! Hope you get better by this weekend. Take tons of Vitamin C and don't forget to drink lots of water and carb up this week. And just think of the beautiful necklace at the finish line waiting for you. Let's hope the weather's good. Right now it's supposed to be a high of 71 and low of 56. Fingers crossed for fog.

I totally do! It's usually either if I'm not having as good as a race as I want or when I find myself going back and forth w/ someone. In that situation, it doesn't matter how many times we leap frog, just as long as I cross the finish line first.

I did find one woman that was doing intervals (a little off mine but close) and stayed with her. She was doing the 10k though and I stopped at 5k. I did pass the 5k mark well before her though.

I wish I had paid attention to her bib number because I'd like to know where she finished! Guessing 1:15-1:16 if she was able to maintain pace (she was really steady)

I'm still tired today. I'm resting then getting back to work tomorrow!

I agree with Specialks - the wings hitting me in the face was a real drag - just get a tshirt that has wings painted on it - that is what I did - they sell them at the expo

Kim - yes I'm taking tons of vitamin C and trying to get to bed early every night!


As for Tink, I can't imagine running with wings on! I know they would drive me crazy! A shirt with wings painted on sounds cute though. Is Raw Threads who had the ones I saw posted on here before?

Is it bad that I'm more stressed about the costume then the run? LOL!

I know I can run it - it may not be pretty but I know I can do it but what I don't know is what to wear. I'm so picky about what I wear when I run that I'm not sure what to do about a costume.

No!

I'd like to get my daughter a costume, but finding stuff tiny enough for her (9 and maybe 60 pounds sopping wet), is hard to do. They had cute sparkle skirts at the ToT expo, but they don't make them with the shorts under. I need to find running tights that stay up on her, then get a skirt, I guess....

The sparkle skirt is the one thing I might do. I think I could handle that over my carpi's.

Does anyone have a link to the sparkle shirts?

I always run in tight running shorts and a tight running tank. I can't handle anything loose or anything covering my arms or legs. I know I'm weird - I'll own that! Even in the winter - that's what I run in. I want to dress up but not sure how to without panicking and having to strip naked halfway through the race because something is touching me! lol!
