10.8 easy miles that were made tougher by a lot of climbing. No significant shin pain this morning.  Felt pretty good.

PM- Core work.  I've decided I need to start doing my core work at least twice a week since I've quit going to the gym and lifting weights.

Solid mileage build up! Good to hear you shin's feeling good!

Thanks all, and so you know, Slick is blogging again.

From DonGardinero on Mon, Dec 06, 2010 at 17:24:13 from

Just curious, what is the easy pace you've been doing these runs? I bet it's still faster than my fastest pace. Lol

From Rhett on Mon, Dec 06, 2010 at 17:37:35 from

Dale, I've been trying to run by feel and not look at my watch. When I'm all done I take a peek to see what the pace was. It is funny that easy some days has been as fast as 7:30 and some days as slow as 8:40. Today was a slower day, I was right at 8:30, but Sat. easy was 7:30.

From Smooth on Mon, Dec 06, 2010 at 17:42:03 from

Ummm, yeah...your slowest pace IS faster than my fastest pace! :)

Nice miles, Rhett (You realize that the extra .8 (or minus .2) miles is really bothering some of our OCD friends (..er, Kathie!) Finish on a nice multiple of .25 miles next time. :)

From Kathie on Tue, Dec 07, 2010 at 13:03:11 from

Hey Marc I looked the other way on this one...I didn't bring it up you did!

They say that the core work makes you a stronger runner (as if you need to be any stronger or faster!!!)
