# Please tell us about your training week and goals.

After a bunch of consecutive days in a row running I took thursday
off.

Saturday and Sunday I was running around East Lansing ( original
hometown and location of Michigan State University ).

Six days in running last week ( no swimming days ... dang! ) total
mileage about 45 miles.

No clear racing goals in sight at the present time ... just happy
right knee is cooperating!

Greetings wreck runners!  Please tell us about your training week and
goals.

    A fatass 50k  http://newmexicofa50k.wordpress.com/foothills-50k/   Had a
great time wearing the asics piranhas; the course is perfect for them, firm
sand and few rocks, and I had no achilles or plantar issues.  A twisty up &
down course, with lots of sandy mud from melting snow on the northern
portion of the course, and a very fast finishing downhill section.  I had a
great time, with no injuries and only general soreness.  6:37

Th - 45 minutes bike trainer
F  -  61 minute run trails, 18 mile bike ride
Sa -   26 mile bike ride
Sun -  1:06 run - road 22 mile bike ride

Knee feels fine this week. The unseasonably warm weather has allowed me to
get in a decent amount of biking this week though I fear that is soon coming
to an end.

Tu: 8K, close to an hour.
Fr: 5K, nearly 40 minutes!
    If I had walked it, I could have claimed the recommended daily hour of
    exercise, but just because I ran it, I only score about half an hour.
    That just doesn't seem fair!
Su: Every New Year's Day for the last decade or so I have had to time my
    running club's Bosetti 10K. Early last year I announced my resignation as
    timer, effective 2012-01-01, not so I could run the 10K, but to do my
    hiking club's annual climb of Koko Crater.
  http://ezekielandzephen.blogspot.com/2010/07/kohelepelepe.html
    It occurred to me later that if only I could do the rather hilly Bosetti,
  http://sketchroute.com/routes/4f025c1e1801dd0001000002
    which starts at 7am, in 41 minutes, I could have almost have done both
    it and the hike, which starts at 8am (but you don't really have to be on
    time).
Week: 13K, finishes the week, the month, and the year.

Next week will be short again, with a 5K on Sunday which will no doubt
satisfy me for the day.

It is now officially too frickin' cold out for my pansy ass to run my
usual route by the river, so I'm back in the ba***t trying to get
into the treadmill routine.  I'm doing an average of 10k a day.  Any
less and I don't feel like I've worked out.  Any more requires a focus
I haven't worked up to yet.  My goal is to not have to buy new clothes
to accommodate a fat ass.  If I can get through the winter without
gaining twenty pounds, I'll be happy.  I love to eat, and my wife
loves to cook, and together we could make me very, very, very big with
very little effort.  We've done it before.  I'd rather not go back
there if I can help it.

Sunday morning I ran 3 miles with a hangover.

Last year was an intentional 'off' year.  High hopes for this year.
Already signed up and paid for 3 half-marathons between March and
September.

Happy New Year and good luck to all wreck.runners!

You going to show up to say Hi at the HAT run this year? Come later
and have a brew when we're done.

Of course, of course.  I look forward to seeing you and Parker again.
Mid March, if I'm not mistaken.  I'll check the website to be sure.
Thanks for remembering.

If you can't face running outside every day, try mixing it up running
every other day outside. That's what I do, but mainly because I have no
place to run locally outdoors other than rocky trails, which I love, but
can't run on every day. A "treadmill routine" sounds awful.

My schedule requires that I run in the early morning before sunrise.
My ba***t may be boring, but it's lighted, warm, safe, and allows me
to maintain a regimen.

Nice. So we've verified the poet is a real person :)

He certainly has calmed down somewhat posting his idea of "prose" on
this newsgroup.  Lots of places on the internet to post "relevant"
content.

Doug and ( Parker ) I think met him last year at a 50k ( if I remember
correctly ).  I guess the decision on prose or poetry is up to each
individual.

Hi, John.  Good to see you again too.  As I recall, you were having
some knee pain and your girls were were scouting colleges the last
time I read the group.  How are things?
