    There's always more to come.

    It must be frustrating not knowing what is going on, and not feeling right. I think seeing seeing your doctor is a good idea. It sounds like age can be contributing factor to the length of time for COVID recovery. Will be praying for you. Heres an AARP article on regaining strength after COVID: https://www.aarp.org/health/conditions-treatments/info-2020/recovery-after-covid.html.
  2. Great job training and setting a state 20K record to boot with all the February freezing temperatures. I have noticed that if I dress right for the cold temperatures I can run comfortably and not sweat much.
  3. Here is an article at Runners World about running vs. walking hills: https://www.runnersworld.com/news/a35192011/best-strategy-for-running-hills-study/
  4. I would let your heart rate be your guide as this is suppose to be a warmup to warmup your muscles and raise your heart rate. If your able run the hill without your heart rate going above your lactate threshold then run it, otherwise I would run/walk it to keep your heart rate from going too high and straining your muscles before your workout.

    Treadmill Dilemma

    I've been running outside this winter when I have normally ran on a treadmill and when it is slippery I go more slowly and shorten my stride. I really enjoy being able to get sometime outside and enjoy the fresh air and the rare days we actually have some sunshine.

    Virtually the Same

    Congrats on a great race effort and almost catching the wippersnapper, I mean C. I agree there is nothing better than being able to put in a great race effort, especially this past year.

    January Recap

    Congrats on meeting your Jaunary run goal. It's hard to get motivated and do a training plan when there is no guarantee of a race happening.
  8. Congrats on your 20K record, especially having to run most of the race alone. Looks like you are really tune into your race efforts and not needing to look at your watch.
  9. Good luck on your continued job search. Hope you find dream job.

    I had a thought

    Glad to here you have been able to get outside and run. When I had access to our workplace fitness center I ran everyday in the winter on the treadmill except for Saturdays. I didn't notice that much or a difference in effort, but the treadmill is alot different run experience. All my running has been all outside this winter, but I am able do most of my running on a blvd that is that isn't busy but which the city keeps either salted or plowed so I only have had use to my Kahtoola running spikes a few times.
  11. Oh yes! The old Brooks Pureflow were my sister's and mine favorite running shoes. I set my marathon PR in Pureflows.

    What has happened to me?

    10 miles outside with 5 at 8 min sounds pretty good.

    Hey hey hey.

    I recently discovered archive.org: "The Internet Archive, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form. Like a paper library, we provide free access to researchers, historians, scholars, the print disabled, and the general public. Our mission is to provide Universal Access to All Knowledge". They have access to million for books, audio recordings, videos, and programs. You borrow books based on availablility and I have been able to check out a couple of books digitally, one which I was able to borrow 14 days at a time,
  14. Congratulations on runnng your half and good luck on your job search. Hang in there.
