      Nice swim and run! I was wondering how you got cuts until I saw your running post. Ouch! Hope everything heals up okay and quickly...

      Or where you chafe during a long run until you hit the shower. Hope you're all healed now.

      Well done Sugar, I firmly believe that your muscles retain their "memory" from previous Marathons and that it doesn,t take long for them to "remember" what you have previously done, well i hope so anyway or i,m gonna be in serious trouble in a few weeks!-lol :-))

      I think taking time away from the long runs is good both mentally and physically. You'll know when it's time to ramp up! Nice miles!

  9. RUN
    great swamp run 3 mi 00:35 11:43 pace

    nice run after the walk with my friend. Very humid out---it hasn't been this muggy in a long time. Not hot, just muggy. Felt like I was in a swamp! Even got rained on during the end of the run!

  10. walk

      So weird that you get two different opinions on the bike size you need. But glad that the bike adjustment seems to work for you.

  17. RUN
    great around the 'hood 3 mi 00:37 12:12 pace

    Getting back into the swing of things. A nice run after dinner. My usual 2 min run/30 sec walk ratio. Slower than I'd like but that's ok. I was running.

  18. RUN
    great with my daughter 0.48 mi 00:08:22 17:25 pace

    My 9 year old wants to do her first 5k! Decided on one for December. Came home from my run and took her around the block for her first training run. She did great! Yay Miss A. !

  19. RUN
    alright Target loop 3.01 mi 00:37 12:08 pace

    Tough run. I didn't bring anything to drink as it was "only" 3 miles....suffered a lot in the heat. Strong miles 1 and 3, but mile 2 kicked my butt and I walked 1/2 mile of it.

      I've done the same thing so many times with "only" a short run in hot weather, have been more faithful about carrying water this summer, and notice that I drain my large bottle and need to refill about every 3 miles. When it's cool, I don't carry water, find I'm OK up to 20 miles if I hydrate just before I go out, and again after.
