      Good that you're doing that, Vickie. The backside are the most important muscles for runners. The butt muscles are to be used more than anything else. And yes on the hips. Mine began getting sore on me a couple of years ago. Since then I have stretched them (and my groin) 3 times per day and I'm fine now.

      Can't say too much about the importance of stretching, especially as we "age". I think it's an often overlooked area, especially with guys - so, good job Bob!

      Very nice Build-up, Break-down, Vickie. I wouldn't like to run in the dark either. Great job getting out there and doing it. (What are 9:86 and 10:79 mile paces in real numbers?)

      I'm kind of kidding with you, Vickie. Sorry. But 9:86 is 9 minutes and 86 seconds, or 10:26. Likewise for 10:79.

      Vickie, a workout schedule is most important if you have goals you want to reach (like races). I've seen your schedules before -- you know exactly what to do. Very nice 6 miles!

      Thanks Bob! That's what I'm going to do - pull out one of those old schedules & update it for the rest of 2014. Winter seems to be a weak time for me as far as staying consistent so all the more reason to have that schedule!

      Sure glad you ran Easy. That's a lot of miles for me that soon after a race. By the way, tell me how you felt at various points during your race and then afterwards. And did you get a good cool down?
