      Hey Cleo. Don't fret about posting/commenting. Sure it's nice and we like following your progress, but the important thing is the actual training which u seem to be doing regardless. Congrats on a lovely 10! The nutrition thing is a tough nut. I find the whole business too confusing, hence my pizza & beer diet.

      Good luck on your training, it sounds like you've got it all planned perfectly. Great run... I was wondering where you've been. It does get hard to do it all. I hope the hip feels better quick.

      If you're not a fan of music while running, I find audio books are a great alternative. Really helps pass the time and is a bit safer than a pounding beat that blocks out traffic noises.

    tired Coachman hills @ 10k race pace 8.04 km 00:50 10:03 pace

    Went into the run a bit fatigued. Probably a combination of Thursday's intervals and dropping ball on diet. Legs in general were TIRED: esp. knees and shins which had periods of soreness.

      Arguably being the keyword. In any case, I'm signed up to "run with Dean" when he gets Ohio. I read his ultramarathon man book many moons ago. It was the first time I had ever heard of an ultramarathon. Looking forward to it! I've heard he's a really nice guy.

      He is a MACHINE! I recorded & watched Regis & Kelly for the 1st time EVER just to see the race start. I'm stunned with the daily mileage he's expected to cover. Superhuman. BTW, I had no idea Kelly was that hot! She obviously puts in SERIOUS time @ the gym. I wonder if she's a runner too?

      (con't from post above) Not to wax philisophical, but "accomplishment" bouncing off the walls of an empty room is a lonely sound indeed. ;) In layman's terms, success that doesn't embrace everything and everyone around it, subsequently "inspiring" that "everything" and "everyone", falls flat, empty and dead. My heart sings to read that it encouraged some of you! Am so glad posting the fat pics generated such a postive return, and the publicity wasn't in vain. :)
      MANY warm hugs to ALL of you!!!!
