    Wankel and the Rotary Engine

    Sorry that you're not where you would have liked to have been at the starting line, but I think you'll find that slice of heaven somewhere in the experience. And many times when I'm in the frozen foods section of a grocery store, I think, "You could melt all this stuff."
  2. You had the self-awareness to recognize that something wasn't right, and made a difficult choice. It sounds like a good decision. And your letter to the group is gracious, positive, and to-the-point. On to 2019!

    Putting the fun back into a workout?

    I like MichaelV's ideas. I was going to suggest limit yourself to 3 runs/week so that you can think about things other than your next run, and you will always have a 2-day break somewhere in the week.

    Ready or not, here I come

    Here's hoping you don't see me during the race. Safe travels.

    NYC Ready!

    Glad to hear that the mojo's back. Having read your RRs, I feel like if you feel ready, then you're going to tear it up.

    Mohawk-Hudson River Marathon RR

    It's funny about weather. In my head, every race I prepare for is run at 48 degrees with a thin, high layer of clouds and no wind. And then race day comes. What can you do except mark it down to bad timing? It's still frustrating, though. And you still came close even with your nutrient problems. Sub-4 is still doable, I think. And I discovered the same thing about those pills a few years ago. I gave up on them and started carrying orange slices, since I don't like gels. I seem to be able to take those without too much digestive stress.

    It's a Race Report!

    Still only 4 minutes off of goal, which doesn't look insurmountable. Don't get too discouraged.

    Distance first, then speed.

    Mrs. Dave and I have the same response to updating the family budget. And so-so runs or not, 6 consecutive days of running is something to feel pleased about.

    Week 7: Trip to Telluride!

    A beautiful trip. I'm jealous.

    FIVE MILES! More on the new watch. Hood to Coast.

    I'm enjoying the 235 talk, since I just picked one up last month to replace my Forerunner 210 that died at the end of what was a remarkably ugly 14-mile run in August. (I'm trying not to take it as an editorial comment.) I've also started wearing the 235 more when I'm not exercising to see what my heart rate is. I just noticed this week that it flashes a recovery time at the end of a workout. The cynic in me expects it to say at some point that I will never recover. Congrats on the 5-miler and best wishes for a continued happy comeback.

    Darien 5 Miles - Welcome Back, Baby!

    Welp, that's going to require therapy in 30 years. Great RR. Welcome back!

    But wait! What do I see? Is she walking out on me?

    Irma Gerd Redux

    I've been taking a similar approach, but outdoors. I have a 3/4 mile loop on a street block that circles a park and a church just down the street from my house. I've done most of my weekday tempo and repeat runs there, just running around and around and around, thinking that the tedium will help me out in the race.

    Sore, flat, broke, but it's going to be ok

    Those trails look great. And don't sweat school. I bet you'll find that you're better prepared for it now than you were when you last attended.

    Definitely LSD. Already thinking about those first runs post-marathon, when I can go back to allowing my thoughts to wander off wherever they want to go.
