Awesome!!!!!~
Aug 13, 2020 11:31 PM # 
ljbean:
Thanks guys! Sadly I'm going to abandon the attempt for this week - my running obsession is hindering other adult responsibilities!
Aug 14, 2020 12:41 AM # 
Hagbert Enger:
When you say ‘adult’ you mean...?
Aug 14, 2020 3:38 AM # 
Toivo!:
Beer drinking
Aug 14, 2020 4:46 AM # 
MuuMuu:
Sex, drugs, rock n roll... not necessarily in that order.
Aug 15, 2020 2:44 PM # 
ljbean:
Gardening, house work, volunteer activities, my actual job. The running is not interfering with beer drinking.
Aug 16, 2020 1:28 AM # 
Toivo!:
You might be a contestant in the REAL TRUE 100/100.
100 miles and 100 beers.
It's still on my bucket list and I WILL do it yet!
I've researched different strategies.
Aug 16, 2020 10:42 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
14-15 beers a day?!
Aug 17, 2020 12:47 AM # 
ljbean:
That is obscene!! Definitely not a challenge for me - but I support anyone I know that wants to take it on!
I am solid for 100 oz of beer per week though.
Aug 17, 2020 3:28 AM # 
Toivo!:
Jarrow... that's the easy part.
Aug 17, 2020 3:38 AM # 
Toivo!:
There are MANY threads on this challenge. Here's just one short one discussing strategy. https://www.reddit.com/r/AdvancedRunning/comments/...

Wow, just Wow
Aug 18, 2020 11:24 AM # 
Grandpa Lefty:
Think I have already done this a few times.
Aug 21, 2020 3:46 AM # 
Toivo!:
^ haha!
But, you gotta document!
Aug 21, 2020 3:47 AM # 
Toivo!:
Lesli... what you training for? Whatever it is, you're READY!
Aug 22, 2020 1:25 AM # 
ljbean:
Maybe Last Runner Standing? Maybe a 24-hr in Moab? Maybe just 2021?
Aug 23, 2020 12:30 AM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Sometimes it's just fun to run A LOT, especially in your 30s (and into your 40s).
Aug 24, 2020 3:14 AM # 
Toivo!:
Foots....
I'm telling you, Hokas have enabled me to run again after years of plantar fasciitis. Others have had similar results.
Aug 25, 2020 11:06 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Foots.... ?
Aug 26, 2020 12:57 AM # 
ljbean:
Foots seem to be my most common threat of injury
Aug 26, 2020 11:59 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
But what did Jess mean by “Foots....”?
Aug 27, 2020 4:34 AM # 
Toivo!:
It was simply an ungrammatical feet comment. Jeez.
Trying to make you a Hoka sale.
Sep 1, 2020 11:40 AM # 
Hagbert Enger:
She’s too young for Hokas.
Sep 2, 2020 12:04 AM # 
ljbean:
My road shoes are Hokas
Sep 2, 2020 10:58 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Oh, no! What will you wear when you’re 60?
Sep 3, 2020 2:16 AM # 
ljbean:
They'll come up with something
Sep 6, 2020 1:40 AM # 
Hagbert Enger:
And meanwhile, the miles continue to pile up! (As do the comments in this thread)
Sep 6, 2020 3:25 PM # 
Toivo!:
Longest thread on Muu Muu's log? 100+
Sep 7, 2020 12:28 AM # 
Hagbert Enger:
We still have a way to go. This thread is was cleaner than that one.
Sep 7, 2020 12:35 AM # 
ljbean:
It can stay that way!
Sep 7, 2020 11:26 PM # 
MuuMuu:
You sure?
Sep 8, 2020 12:53 AM # 
Toivo!:
I give Muu two more days to go low here.
Sep 8, 2020 2:28 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
No, he has matured greatly since then.
Sep 9, 2020 12:43 AM # 
Toivo!:
Ummm... did you not notice that he offered to "play with (my) moobs" just last week?

That said, I WANNA RUN 100 MILE WEEKS TOO!
Sep 9, 2020 2:14 AM # 
MuuMuu:
One day...
Sep 10, 2020 6:54 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
I remember 100 mile weeks...
Sep 13, 2020 12:51 AM # 
Toivo!:
Good run today.
I WANNA RUN 20 MILERS TOO!
Sep 13, 2020 5:19 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Me, too! But it would be best if we both slowly built back up to 20 milers.
Sep 14, 2020 12:43 AM # 
ljbean:
Start building up? A mile a week?
Sep 18, 2020 11:00 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
I might try a 10 miler on Sunday and maybe build from there, a mile a week.
Sep 19, 2020 12:05 AM # 
ljbean:
YES!!!
Sep 20, 2020 11:17 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Couldn’t run, so walked instead. Sorry.
Sep 22, 2020 12:15 AM # 
ljbean:
That's OK! Think it is about time for me to take a break - not running is hard.
Sep 25, 2020 1:11 AM # 
Toivo!:
I'm worried that you are going to get fat and out of shape at this rate :)
Sep 26, 2020 12:43 AM # 
ljbean:
I'm seriously having a hard time consuming less
Sep 26, 2020 4:17 AM # 
Toivo!:
Winter is coming
Sep 26, 2020 12:49 PM #

Isn't it always
Sep 27, 2020 5:23 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
We do not sow.
Oct 1, 2020 6:17 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Unbowed, unbent, unbroken
Oct 2, 2020 12:13 AM #

Growing strong
Oct 2, 2020 9:45 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Ours is the fury
Oct 2, 2020 9:55 PM # 
Toivo!:
Oh come on you guys... I watched one episode of that and have no idea what you're talking about.
Oct 3, 2020 3:08 PM # 
ljbean:
Sounds like you have some work ahead of you.
Oct 8, 2020 11:48 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Read the books!
Oct 9, 2020 12:02 AM # 
ljbean:
Or listen if you have more time for that?
Oct 11, 2020 1:48 AM # 
Hagbert Enger:
I think the library has them on cd, Jess. You could listen on your trips up and down the shore. You’d like it: lots of sex and violence.
Oct 13, 2020 11:41 PM # 
ljbean:
And eating and drinking.
Oct 14, 2020 3:09 PM # 
Toivo!:
I watched one episode a couple years ago and they launched into some pretty wild sex and violence right away. It kinda turned me off to the show. Getting old and prudish I guess.
Oct 14, 2020 9:38 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Not you, Jess!
Oct 16, 2020 12:45 AM # 
ljbean:
The books are slightly less raunchy than HBO
Oct 17, 2020 7:56 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Are we still waiting for book #8?
Oct 18, 2020 12:11 AM # 
ljbean:
Not holding my breath - hopefully he is taking advantage of Quarantime.
Oct 21, 2020 12:37 AM # 
Toivo!:
Lesli... what time do you plan on doing Hawk's Ridge, etc.? I'd tag along if the timing is right...and if you want company.
Oct 21, 2020 3:17 PM # 
Toivo!:
^nm too snowy :)
Oct 21, 2020 4:10 PM # 
ljbean:
Yeah....I'm probably not going anywhere if I don't have to.
Oct 25, 2020 1:03 AM # 
Toivo!:
Three races in one day! Uffda
Oct 26, 2020 1:23 PM # 
ljbean:
Likely the last chance to get them in before the deadline!
Nov 5, 2020 6:59 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
I was so glad to do the NMTC series. So many hills...
Nov 7, 2020 12:00 AM # 
ljbean:
Funner with people, but I was glad to do it as well.

Muu is trying to bump up the number of comments on this thread so it’s longer than his record-setting thread

I get blanks and doubles? How sweet!
Nov 10, 2020 1:31 AM #

Ha ha... oops. You know how when you're in sketchy wifi areas and you just keep clicking "send" ?
Nov 10, 2020 1:36 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Leslie, how's your injury? (as Dan Conway would say). Is is still "active"?
Nov 11, 2020 2:21 AM # 
ljbean:
Slowly but surely improving - maybe I'll 'end' it soon, really only sucks when driving.

I'm in serious training for the 100/100 out here in the mountains. Working on the beer end of things mostly.
Nov 14, 2020 3:08 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Refresh my memory as to what the injury is, please.
Nov 16, 2020 12:32 AM # 
ljbean:
Central Serous Retinopathy - there is some fluid stuck over one of my retinas and it makes my vision blurry. Supposedly caused by elevated blood cortisol levels.
Nov 16, 2020 12:39 AM # 
Toivo!:
Ooooh. What can they do about it?
Here in Salida, last summer, I had an eye issue. Posterior vitreous detachment. Not too serious though.
Nov 17, 2020 12:32 AM # 
ljbean:
anything with 'detachment' sounds scary. Generally nothing is done with CSR - it just goes away after a few months. If they are concerned with retinal damage they can laser wherever the fluid comes from shut.
Nov 18, 2020 5:04 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Yuck.
Nov 20, 2020 5:24 PM # 
ljbean:
Indeed - fingers crossed there are no more recurrences!
Nov 20, 2020 6:51 PM # 
Toivo!:
Congrats to Rudy!
Nov 21, 2020 11:16 PM # 
ljbean:
He makes me look like a slacker
Nov 22, 2020 1:02 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
I'm sorry, I didn't see what Rudy did.
Nov 22, 2020 4:12 PM # 
Toivo!:
He received the COGGS (I think) annual award for volunteer of the year, for trail maintenance and building.
Nov 23, 2020 6:50 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Rudy is the man!
Dec 1, 2020 3:03 AM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Your training is really piling up!
Dec 1, 2020 10:24 PM # 
ljbean:
gotta get it in while I can! And winter would be terrible if I didn't get some outdoors time.
Dec 19, 2020 5:43 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Skiing, running, biking, hiking...
Dec 19, 2020 6:35 PM # 
Toivo!:
...and yoga!
(Who's going to be comment #100?)
Dec 21, 2020 1:03 AM # 
ljbean:
Seems like I would be appropriate for that
Dec 21, 2020 1:36 AM # 
Toivo!:
Yay!
Dec 22, 2020 12:11 AM # 
ljbean:
Skiing...maybe there'll be enough snow for me to handle that soon.
Dec 22, 2020 12:44 AM # 
Hagbert Enger:
There’s enough snow now!
Dec 26, 2020 11:47 PM # 
ljbean:
And what nice snow it is!
Jan 2, 2021 11:53 PM # 
ljbean:
Back to 100/100 topic - 10 100 mile weeks in 2020 - I want to try more this year, but will it mess with my vision?!?!?! sounds like a good experiment!
Jan 9, 2021 6:34 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Keep us posted. I hope your vision does not suffer.
Jan 9, 2021 6:35 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Do you see that you are in sixth place currently is training volume on attackpoint?
Jan 10, 2021 12:24 AM # 
ljbean:
I might have a problem...
Jan 13, 2021 4:27 AM # 
Toivo!:
I think you may be the first attackpointer to break 7:00 this year!
Jan 15, 2021 2:33 AM # 
Grandpa Lefty:
That is some great training time!
Jan 16, 2021 11:32 PM # 
Toivo!:
Only 47:00 of training today? You okay?! :)
Jan 17, 2021 5:39 PM # 
ljbean:
I gotta take it easy once in a while! Might even try 0 for Monday...
Jan 17, 2021 11:06 PM # 
Toivo!:
You can DO it!1
Jan 19, 2021 12:20 AM # 
ljbean:
DO what?
Jan 19, 2021 12:24 AM # 
Toivo!:
Zero on Monday... which, apparently, you can't :)
Jan 19, 2021 4:01 PM #

I'm actually travelling next week so I talked myself into delaying rest :)
Jan 20, 2021 3:10 AM #

Texas? Oklahoma?
Be careful down there.

I miss running while traveling. I know it can be awkward, but it’s a great way to explore the world.
Jan 29, 2021 10:58 PM # 
ljbean:
I miss the world
Feb 4, 2021 12:10 AM # 
Toivo!:
Nice run today! Not sure I'll ever see a 7:00 mile again :)
Feb 5, 2021 1:15 AM # 
ljbean:
I for one wouldn't surprised to see you hit a 6-something!
Feb 7, 2021 6:16 PM # 
Hagbert Enger:
Jess, we will break 7 minutes for the mile in 2021.
Feb 7, 2021 6:37 PM # 
Toivo!:
I'm in!
Feb 8, 2021 3:30 PM # 
ljbean:
YES!!!!
Feb 13, 2021 12:40 PM #

On the track?
Mar 9, 2021 4:52 PM #

No one has posted here since February 13th? Inconceivable!

Haha! That’s correct. Good research.
That’ll teach me to work from memory.
To lave would mean “to wash” I guess.
