    Yes - I'm nyc based, got on a NY team last minute and thought it would be fun. It's a beautiful part of the country.

    6.8 miles this afternoon with 8 striders. I need more sleep. Earthquakes at 3:30 a.m. aren't helping. :D

    Got in a tempo session this morning in CP - 50 minutes at 6:26 pace for about 7.7 miles. Was depleted at the end of the run.

    I survived my third "iron distance" triathlon on Sunday at Challenge Penticton (BC, Canada). This was my slowest, but given how uninspired I've been to train this year, I did fine. My overall time was 13:57 (PR (on the same course) is 12:51. My run split was 5:20, but I'm happy to report that I ran the second half 36 minutes faster than the first. :)

    I think I'm going to retire from triathlons. ;)

    Congrats, Fueco! Even at a reduced pace, that's certainly a solid day's work.

    4.5 miles this morning. Recovery weak so pace was slow and I donated blood Monday evening so I am still a little lacking on pep.

    After yesterday mornings 6 mile run, I went for another 6 mile run in the evening. I had to dodge so many bicycles, dogs, cars, other runners, etc. that I felt like I was playing Paperboy on my old Nintendo.

    I was supposed to get out for another short run this morning. I got up early enough, wandered around the house and started to get ready and then decided to just go back to bed. I think I made the right choice. :nodding:

    Once I am out of bed I can't go back to sleep but sometimes I will wake up in the middle of the night, decide I don't want to run, and change the alarm time for an extra hour of sleep.

    I usually wake up to run around 4:15 or 4:30 so it's still basically the middle of the night for me. I went back to sleep and was still able to get another 2+ hours of sleep.

    This morning I decided to get back out there and gave running a big High-Five! :crackup:

    Had I known my route was going to look so much like a hand, I would have added in a proper thumb.

    8.6 miles in this morning. Nothing eventful other than I it felt a lot better than yesterday's morning run.

    Didn't run with my group last night...just wasn't feeling it. Will get in some miles over the Holiday weekend (here in the US) then start my final 3 big weeks before taper. Should average about 60 miles those 3 weeks and taper is 12 days.

    I actually ran four miles this evening... After parking at Crowsnest Pass (BC/Alberta border on Highway 3), I ran some on trails, some on gravel, some on train tracks and some on the highway shoulder. It felt good to stretch the legs out!

    I got in 13 miles this morning. My legs weren't feeling the hills so I may branch out to the streets tomorrow. May still be a little fatigue from donating blood which was probably not the best idea during training.

    Pretty miserable 13.7 yesterday. Went out for 15, but never really got in the groove. Beautiful day, though!

    21k (13 miles) mostly cross-country in the rolling Hampshire Downs (that's the original Hampshire rather than the 'New' one...) on Saturday. Deliberately easy in terms of pace, I was really just seeing if I could do the distance without my hamstring playing up, since I have a half coming up this Saturday. I think it will be okay if I don't push it. Spent yesterday in planes, trains and automobiles coming home, which really didn't help though..
