Gul, you are developing a relationship with that watch. Good entertainment for us. And nice session despite the technical delay.
Birch, sounds rough over there. Glad you got some rest and are feeling a bit better. Rejuvenating thoughts headed your way.
Badbark, incredible session! You are a fitness monster right now. And glad to hear my ceiling is far off yet! Good luck finishing this grueling week and enjoy the taper (why do I suspect you won't enjoy the taper?).
Leslie, sorry to hear the news. But at least you know what the problem is. I'll have faith you can get help to correct it!
Another hot run today. Felt really good (surprisingly) again. Wonder if I didn't just get a fitness shift smoldering amidst all this heat?
Gul, I think you might be part hummingbird...or perhaps need to upgrade the HR monitor!. Nice MLR BTW.
GD, that's a pretty wicked (good) run for so little time on feet lately. Impressive.
SJ, good progress and glad the hip is better.
BI, seems you've turned a corner this year. Nice speed work.
OO, nice double. I was hoping to sneak out tonight but instead got stuck doing the final lice treatment on daughter (and paranoid check on wife). Got 10 in earlier in very hot conditions. Snuck back into work after sporting the drowned rat look. Very nice run though. Legs felt great w/brisk cadence. Think I'm getting used to the heat a bit.
Also, forgot to mention, turned 42 last week. Not slowing down yet as my running and fitness seem to still be improving. I haven't raced since October though so need to find a couple of races just to see where things are at before the marathon in October. Hard to do though w/kids' activities every weekend morning when most races are happening. Wife and I usually divide and conquer...
Whoa, KR!!Big miles there. I've never cracked the 70s so am duly impressed. Are you training for an ultra? Or just going full Forest Gump?
MsE, impressive miles for you too. Hopefully your body takes them in stride.
Gul, nice fast run. That's pretty good if you can get your HR to 200. 166 ave is also pretty good for 8 miles. You can start dialing in your HR vs effort/pace as you get ready for the next marathon. This could really be a nice metric for you on the day to keep everything between the lines early.
I went out for a subLT run today against my better instincts. It was 82, sunny, w/dewpt of 69 F. Let's say I finished w/everything, including my shoes, soaked. My garmin wouldn't fire up so ran naked (I was like a junkie in need of a fix!). But afterward compared my numbers and hit my pace perfectly. No idea of HR, but despite the heat, legs felt great. But on the cool down miles started getting a little light headed. Now am feeling a bit done as I sit in my (cool) office. D&D though...
Yes, big miles piling up in here. I just finished a 69 mile week and have 240 so far for the month. I seem to have adapted to the higher volume weeks after a slow ramp up. Foot is much better too (thankfully!). Had a nice break from the heat the past 3 days, but tomorrow the furnace is back on.
Also, Gul, hope you're feeling better and good luck at the doc Leslie. And Birch, we must find your mojo! I bet it's close by...
And much great racing going on here!! GM, you fast devil, what is your marathon target (or is it still too early to predict?)?
