    The project that never ends.

    Ah! the joys of owning an older home. Is that a picture of the annual spring time flooding along Hines drive?

    New floors! (NRR)

    Amazing difference between the old and new floors. I am looking at doing something similar. Moving a fridge is a pain.
  3. Good job on your floor prep with all your hard work. looks like the toughest part is done. It will all be worthwhile once you get the new floor in. We had our lenoleum kitched floor replaced a couple year ago and it so much nicer now.

    March Madness

    Congrats on your montly mileage PR and your road wins. Sounds like your back and hitting on all cyclinders.

    Tiny progress

    I am glad for you, looks like your persistance has paid off.
  6. WOW! I am dizzy from reading about all you running and crossfit workouts. Sounds like your training is going well, hope it makes for you some good marathon times.
  7. Good luck with everything; job search, starting back running, cohabitation, a car and driving in NYC. I don't know if have gotten a COVID vaccine, but I read that it is suppose to help any lingering affects from having COVID. Also, several years ago I lent my daughter a car in my name while she lived in Brooklyn and I received a boatload of bills for parking fines.

    Shoe Story

    A little background, when I first started running consistently, training to run my first marathon I ran in Asics Cumulus shoes which have quite a bit of cushioning. Back then I was a heel striker and since I am somewhat bowlegged and supinate as well I ended up always wearing out my shoes on the outside of the heals. It turned out back then the Cumulus cushioning would eventually not bounce back after repeated outside heel strikes making the supination even more pronounced. I believe this was a one cause for my repeated bouts with the dreaded PF (plantar fasciitis), sometimes in both feet

    St. Patrick's Day 5k RR

    Nice race effort.
  10. Congratulations on the win with consistent splits! So there really are live white squirrels? I've only seen black, brown, and gray ones here in Michigan.
  11. Good job on staying consistent on with your running workouts and varing the intensity of your workouts. Also good luck on your 5K. A race always motivates me to push out of my comfort zone. Good luck and persistance with your job search.

    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.
  13. 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.
  14. Here is an article at Runners World about running vs. walking hills: https://www.runnersworld.com/news/a35192011/best-strategy-for-running-hills-study/
  15. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  22. 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.

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,
