Happy Thanksgiving, BT friends!
Got myself out the door for my run....a wet and cool one that I was dreaming about my coffee once I got home.....I planned on my usual 4 miler but mentally got in the zone and never made my turn on Windsor so I just hung out on Treely.  The legs felt pretty good, lungs too....The coffee tastes heavenly too. 
 
 
 
Got to the gym about an hour before it closed.  Perfect.  No fighting for machines.  Able to blast through leg day--tomorrow may hurt cause I haven't done it in a while, but it felt pretty good to get through.  Had to stop for gas on the way home cause we're driving up to see the in laws tomorrow.

Happy Thanksgiving !!

Today was a hard run day. I'm kinda/sorta/for the most part, following the novice runner plan in the book i'm reading. it makes the most sense based on the weekly mileage and the paces. Of course, the weekly mileage is based on someone running only and probably 4 times/week.

For now i'm going to focus on running, trying to get at least 4 runs in per week and counting other days (swimming, spinning, tennis) as "run recovery" days. Still want to get in at least 1 swim and 1 swim a week (but shooting for 2 of ea. per week).

Todays hard run: Started out great. Oh, i should say, the plan was 1 miles ez (65%)/1 miles hard (80%), 1 mile ez (65%).

1st mile ez (65% - 140bpm) - this went great. kept it under 140 for the 1st 1/2 mile. edged up a smidge for the next 1/4 mile, up to 150 on the little short hill, but brought it back down to around 145 for the rest of mile 1. 12'20" mile/avg. HR 137. A lot of downhill tho.

Oh, so "my plan" was 1 ez, 3 hard, 1 ez.[...]

Oh my gosh, my knees are so sore from skiing! I was going to do the local turkey trot this morning, but I don't think I want to run with sore knees, so I will find somewhere to ride my bike instead. It's supposed to be 60 degrees in Denver, so maybe I'll head down the hill and try to find something dry down there...

On the plane, going somewhere I can run freely without pesky layers and ice underfoot.  Yay!

Stats taken after run and before getting something to eat, %water 67.8, muscle 37.5, bone 3.9.

Happy Thanksgiving! As I'm spending the afternoon at my brother's and it was relatively nice-looking outside, decided to get in a longer run around Ft D. Temps in the mid-30s with a bit of wind so I was in cold weather gear once again, but it wasn't all that bad and I felt toasty when I was done. Decided since I had to the time to run a bit farther today than the normal loop. Thought about doing 9+ but wasn't sure I had that much time. I started off slow but eventually got down to decent zone 2 pace. Enjoyable holiday run!

Beginning to wonder if these shoes are an issue with my right knee area and so I think I'm going to look into some maximist shoes such as the Hokas. The Cliftons got good reviews and think I'll go to the local shoe store and see if I can try on a pair. Been reluctant to try these because they really look like running platform shoes, but perhaps they'll do [...]

What a terrible run. Went out faster than I should have, which was really ok b/c I recovered on a downhill, but then took a wrong turn. Was 7OA at that point. Just jogged it in after that.

One more day and Darren will be home. We've been able to video chat most days so that's nice. I can tell he misses us.  I miss him
Miss Felicity did not sleep last night.  She's going to be tired tonight! I am not too bad today - she was really cute, not too fussy, just away and after a while i just turned on the lights and we played a bit. Then she passed out hard. But that was already 4 am.  Yikes!
