    5000m, really out of breath by the time I finished, this old woman asked me how many miles so I said 3, her response was "Oh, I'd have been less surprised if it was 30" as though distance is the only thing that makes you tired. Stupid bitch.

    I can now see the end of the tunnel for running again!
    The surgery was successful and I am back to weight bearing.
    I have PT 3 times a week and I did a 2 hour pool work out today.

    Any one see the new 2012 NB Minimus line with 0 drop.

    New route around prague this morning. - Finally figured out the camera on my wife's old assed sony errickson (which is small/open lined). Just kept the thing in my hand and would take shots the whole way.

    I walked around yesterday and figured it would make a great run, only 3miles though.

    First from Old Town - my hotel towards the Charles Bridge... still empty at 6:30am... but since its Czech Day(s) it will be FULL with people in less than an hour...

    [​IMG]

    across the bridge to Lesser Town where everything goes uphill...


    [​IMG]

    Then reaally uphill. Towards the steps to the castle/royal palace/huge gothic cathedral...

    [​IMG]

    the steps are killer... I'm not going to lie... I stopped to take this picture... because the top was finally in sight. I think this is only 1/5th of the way up!

    [​IMG]

    Through the palace guards/gates/flags and into the main courtyard.. so far so good not a soul (except for the guards) in site.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    See the HUGE gothic cathedral and run through the side. So many gargoyles looking down...

    [​IMG]
    ^^GOD BLESS THIS MESS^^

    Leaving the huge gothic cathedral... still alone... no one in sight...

    [​IMG]

    Its all down down cobblestoned hills from here:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Finally see a guard on the way out... I saw a smirk. He then takes position at the gate as I exit:

    [​IMG]

    More down hill... next on the wall above are the royal wine vineyards... I'll be eating lunch there in about 6 hours...

    [​IMG]

    Finally back to flat lands... river run from here on out:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Finally no more fucking cobblestones... on the bridge back to the hotel...

    [​IMG]

    and a final view from the other side of the Charles River of where I climbed up... it wasn't that bad... and thats a little over 3 miles...

    [​IMG]

    I went back up there a couple hours later with the droves of tourists/visitors... it was crowded and hectic but I didn't mind... I know how it feels to run those cobble stoned ways totally alone.

    Great pictures, LawrenceMD! After my 2 mile run late afternoon yesterday, I went back last evening and tried seeing if I could do the Navy PRT qualifier (1.5 miles in 12 minutes). The first time around, I ran 1.41 miles at the highest incline in 12 minutes, and the second time, I could only do 1.38 with no incline (I was tired from the previous run).
    I have to laugh at yankees complaining about the heat. It's been 100 degrees here every day for a month. And it stays in the 90s until after bed time this time of year. On the other hand when it gets to about 30 here I am miserable. I find myself wondering how people live in places where there are regular below 0 temperatures.
    Well, it's all conditioning, isn't it? I don't mind running outside in the winter at all. In fact, I love to go out running when it's snowing, simply because it's so much more refreshing. However, folks used to the heat would think I'm nuts when it's 5 below without windchill and I'm running with just shorts and a windbreaker. On the other hand, if it's anything above 80f, I've a hard time getting outside and being active. I just dehydrate way too quickly, and can't take the heat.

    Cool story dude. I'm not sure anyone is complaining here. I think folks just generally mention the noteworthy or most memorable parts of their run.

    To that end: 5 tonight, warm ups and hill repeats. Getting ready for a half at the end of the month.

    Yeah most of the people here run every day and just make note of changes in the weather as they do affect how fast/far one can run reasonably. Climate is a factor in anyone's training. 10 yesterday with some faster miles at Marathon pace in the mix. 10 today in the sun pretty slow.

    I hate the heat for running. But love the heat for all the sun dresses and skimpy outfits that women are forced to wear in the city. Seriously though thats why I love living in a place with 4 seasons. You don't know what you really like/dislike unless you experience the opposite equally.

    Great pictures, LawrenceMD!

    Yeah I can run in the winter just fine. Snow and ice at night with a full moon at night is like running in a dream.

    I was wearing my Boston Bruins t shirt walking around Prague (to the dismay of my wife because I looked like a typical american tourist) and kept on getting high fives from random dudes. Then I remembered that there are two Czech nationals on the bruins. I was informed that the Stanley Cup is going to be shipped over to the player's home towns and huge organized celebrations are planned.
