Well, that is what I expected to read when I decided to finally post a blogpost around here...excuse me for a moment while I tidy up, seems to be a great deal of cobwebs around here....


Well, other than me posting, a lot has been going on. I have been lurking, keeping up with some of my favorite blogs.

Big shout out to Ryan for tearing up Ironman St. George and punching his ticket to Kona.

CJ has been grabbing life by the horns and finished a century ride...crying? Really? I kid....Just don't pick up that smoke, brother!

Jamoosh has moved yet again...but I like the new digs...

Adam is hugging trees and dropping sick 5k times(without speedwork)...

The Sean ran an amazing 3rd place finish at the Valle Crucis 25k, with a time of 1:37...I can't even wrap my mind round that kind of speed....

Glaven is getting older...and has a thing for guys named Thomas/Tom, G, I wonder why?

Steve Q has bounced back from another injury and seems to be getting ready to toe the line yet again...

However, today's big shout out goes to Psyche...and this is two-fold. First, I won her giveaway contest and will be receiving a new, Blackhawk Boys T-Shirt(even if they didn't use any of the ten names I submitted for the other giveaway)! Also, she will be running the Enoree 40 miler on Mother's Day! Stop by and give her some lurve...hehe

On to some quick running housekeeping...My mileage is up, my times are down and the weather is there. Good god man! my trackworkout last night was tough! I have been focusing on 400's getting ready for the Savannah Mile at the end of the month. In the last few weeks, I have been running my 4's around 1:35. Last night? Averaged 1:42...FML, where did the spring weather go?

I am currently on the fence about a 50 miler is September. This would mean 4 and 5 hour long runs in the Savannah Summer, I am not sure if I want that. As it is, I will be logging several 20+ LSR's getting ready for the Mystery Mountain Marathon in October. Do I really want to pummel myself this summer??? I say no, but sometimes "no" means "yes"...wait, this is going in the wrong direction....

Gotta go.

Wow, this is like a blogospheric version of The Soup. It saved me the trouble of reading like 10 blogs.

Yeah, why do you supposed Glaven comes down so hard on foax named Tom/Thomas? I mean with a name like Glaven ... he's got to be good!

Er, I mean, He's got to be a Schmuck ... er's!

Or something.

Do the 50 miler! I wanna see if the Savannah Summer Heat can actually melt a dude!

You have some time to think about the 50 miler. With the heat and humidity, the training would be a bit rough, but then again, when is training not rough?

Hi Thomas,
Hey, welcome back to the bloggie world:)

You are a tough guy...you could do the 50 miler! It might not be the best weather for training but it would make you a stronger runner. When the time comes you will know what to do. Have a wonderful weekend!

If you do the 50, convince CJ to make it duel, part 2! Welcome back.

Adam said...

Wow, the title of this blog kinda freaked me out. I was afraid that you were going to shut 'er down. Thankgoodness I was wrong.

I hear you on the summer training. I have no humidity in PHX, but I'm going to pull back my miles in the 110 degree summer.

no ALWAYS means yes, right? RIGHT?? My wife might disagree....

Al's CL Reviews said...

Jamoosh said...

Nothing wrong with a little blogcation. Now get out there and run!

San said...

Glad you are still alive and kickin', ah, running.

Do whatever you feel is right for you on the 50m.

4 hour long runs in the summer are great because your blood volume get so low from the dehydration that 1 beer f's your head up like a whole bottle of whiskey.

50miler!!! Yikes! Give me an Ironman anyday.
