  1. I think it's called cross training because it makes me cross. I injured my knee playing basketball a couple of years ago and I decided I wouldn't play anymore because I didn't want to take time off from running again. About 3 weeks ago, I played basketball again and was surprised and happy to find out I could still cut and move without any sign of injury or weakness.
  2. A little rest is likely to be of great benefit to your running (and to other aspects of your life). Enjoy the wedding and stay away from the buffet table although I could not follow that advice myself.
  3. I'm trying to increase the distance of my long runs. I have been trying for quite awhile but I've been rather unsuccessful. A few years ago, something changed and it has taken a long time for me to accept that this is probably the new "normal". I used to read other runner's blogs and wonder why they talked about the pain of running so much. Since I was already a somewhat older runner, (in my forties), and I ran pain free most of the time. I didn't understand why it would be so painful for so many other runners. Not only did I used to be Kingcoffee, I was also the king of no pain. So
  4. I'm sure you will be under 4 and 3:40 is likely if you've tapered (which I neglected to do before running Boston).
  5. I remember you from the original Loop as well Sara. It was a rather small group when I first joined and your blog was probably the first one I read.
  6. Yes, like a 50k except that we got a break between each one since they were at different locations and we had to drive from one to another. We also had to wait while our race director went out to re-mark the courses which means he also ran all 10 of them in one day. I'm sure you have been in some races with him, Dave, since he lives in White Lake MI.
  7. Allow me to reintroduce myself. I used to post in the old Loop hosted on the Runner's World site. I was known there as Kingcoffee. I used to love posting blogs and reading other peoples blogs and comments. I stopped doing that because my life became so busy that I could barely find the time to run much less write about it. I started my own company and it took up so much of my time that I didn't have any left for much else. I thought that, if I started my own company, I wouldn't have a "job" anymore. I quickly discovered that I had traded my one job for 5. I posted one blog in thi
  8. Sounds like a lot of fun. I love racing 5k’s.
  9. Good to hear that it seems not to be an injury. I don’t think I have ever done that many miles in a month.
  10. This post reminds me why I used to frequent the Loop so much. I used to be known as kingcoffee.
  11. It's just one mile, 100 times. No, you don't have to show me out, I know my way to the door.
