  1. Congrats on achieving the 20k record! That's an impressive honor. Like you, I will not miss February.
  2. I'm interested to hear what the doc says. I had a very mild case 3 months ago but still feel heavy legs and every run is 30 seconds slower that before Covid. My training partner is having a similar experience.

    Treadmill Dilemma

    I hope to avoid treadmills and eucalyptus leaves as much as possible. It may be a treadmill, but at least you're getting it done.

    Virtually the Same

    Nice to read a RR again. Well done.
  5. I must have a pair of the shark shorts!

    Going to do my part.

    This year has been depressing for many of us. Glad you're feeling better and that I made the cut.

    I love Peppermint Bark! Are you aware it's available in dark chocolate?
  8. I’m fortunate to have a really great, supportive LRG based at the YMCA in my town. Group runs are scheduled at various times every day of the week and there’s usually always someone ready to jump in on whatever workout shows up on my training schedule. Still I don’t think I truly appreciated the benefit of a solid LRG until everything shut down last March and all running races cancelled or went virtual. Several sub-groups of our LRG popped up to train for and run virtual Fall races together. The Mohawk-Hudson Marathon was on my calendar for October and promptly cancelled, as expect
  9. Glad to hear Tempo is still healthy and pooping on the neighbor's lawn.

    Jumping July

    Curious how the 6 x hill repeats were run during the 7/9 workout and how that addressed a weakness? There's a workout I use in the later part of marathon training: 2 mile warm up, 8 x 60 second hill repeats, stand still for 3 minutes (to get the heavy legs feeling going), then 4 miles at GMP on those heavy legs. The work out is expected to simulate the way the legs feel after mile 20-22. Is the 7/9 work out designed for a similar purpose? A different weakness? Can't help it... I'm a sucker for details and reasoning.

    the new thing

    Scary stuff for people like us. At least I'm not tall.

    Solid effort. Hope the bug is gone.
  13. The 21 miles on the TM still kills me. Ouch!

    Decision Made, Plans Laid

    That looks about as "in the middle of nowhere" as one can possibly be. Good luck.
