    A Year in Review

    You have such an amazing attitude!!
  2. I asked her multiple times if she would instead go backwards and turn 11, but she kept saying no.
  3. My library had books 1-11 of that series and then I read the final 2 as ebooks. I also hope your knee starts behaving!

I strained my hamstring between lifting on Aug. 27 and my Aug. 28 tempo run, and 3 days of easy running wasn
  5. Since I start every week day run at 5:00-5:30 a.m., it is really not a big deal!

    Hey, look. I'm running.

    Eh, cross-training is pretty worthless. 😉
  7. The idea to run a 20k time trial started because I was registered for the Dam to DSM 20k race. I'd entered long before it rescheduled then turned virtual (before COVID and even before my hip issue!). The virtual race window was August 31 through September 7 and I planned to run a hard 20k on September 5, but due to being overly cautious with a hamstring I tweaked lifting I ended up just running an easy 20k that day. The hammy was back to 100% just a few days later, and for some reason I still wanted to run a 20k, so Christian and I both asked our coaches to schedule it on Friday, September

    Starting up. Slowing down.

    This painting stuff sounds exhausting.

    Haha, I love finding those perfect phone setting spots. Most of mine are taken with my phone in a little nook where you put your hand to open the hatch back of my car.

  13. I saw that one and considered it, but it is in Kansas so wouldn't count for a Missouri record. Thanks for the tip!

    Hello from Idaho.

    I second the such a good dad comment!
  15. Since I don't expect to have many/any race recaps this season, I thought I'd recap some of the time trials I do. Next time I'll have a better name - my running group is doing two "Pick Your Poison" track time trials in September. My coach put a 5k time trial on my training schedule for August 21. I think she mainly wanted to see where I was at and get my max heart rate. I knew I wasn't in top shape so it didn't feel like a big deal, but at the same time I treated it like an actual race. Even though I wasn't in PR form, I still wanted to get the best out of myself that morning. I drank

    With that race title it's sure to draw a lot of interest. 🙂

    It shouldn't bug me when people count fake PRs, but for some reason it does!

    I'm confident I'd rather never PR again than take up swimming! 😂

  22. Michael, that's about exactly what I do HR and pace-wise! I cap my HR at 132 for doubles also. I also agree about it being hard not to say something about people's "impressive easy paces". An acquaintance of mine posted a "nice and easy run" where her heart race averaged in the 160s and peaked at 175, and I just wanted to say, oh honey, that's a tempo! I have definitely made many, many mistakes with running over the years, but I will not make the mistake of running easy days too fast again.
  23. I’ve found I feel better running 6-7 days a week than I feel at 3-4! I hope that St George happens for you and the others signed up. 🤞
