    @Elise4270 - Nice run! Hope you're feeling better.
    @shanaber - I did feel like a bad-*kitten* for running in the rain today...even though it was very light.

    I honestly love running in the rain- there is something very cathartic about it- and yes- it's totally a level up bad-a$$ery!!! :D Good job you!
    I also love running in the rain - it feels wonderful. People here think I am crazy but then I am sure they would either way (there goes that crazy running lady with her dog again!) LOL

    @skippygirlsmom - I wish I could convince Hobbes to go in the pool. I know he would love it but he won't go in. As a puppy he would go on the step and play but now he won't even do that. Most Vizslas love the water and I get the one that doesn't :)

    @SonicDeathMonkey80 - hope the half went well! I find it so odd that you have races on Fridays and Saturdays when it seems like ours are almost exclusively on Sundays.

    @isulo_kura - love your new profile picture of Myka! Also the cows are awesome and scary!

    Easy 5 mile run today. It was supposed to rain but was just cloudy and cool. I am loving the weather in So California right now although we could still really use some rain.

    30 and counting
    Last run it was geese. This time, TOURISTS; flippin all over the place with their selfie sticks and their road-ignorance (evidenced by their refusal to look ahead or share the road/street/sidewalk.

    okay, rant over..back to the stats
    • 01 - 1.8 mi (rainy)
    • 06 - 7.4 mi
    • 08 - 6.8 mi (hill climb)
    • 10 - 8.2 mi (rain/humid..gack)
    • 12 - 4.3 mi (zigzagging through the tourist like halfback)

    and a view of what the tourist (and me) where there to see

    @Elise4270 - Thanks for the thoughts about my knees. They are less swollen tonight and I'm hoping to run tomorrow am.
    @mwyvr - I appreciate your tip for stretching too. I've been a lot of stretching to prevent plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis. Now, I'm going to check out IBS specific stretches now too, thank you Sir.
    @shanaber- love this!
    @SonicDeathMonkey80 - Have a great run tomorrow!

    @JimCrackinDandy I have biomechanical issues and battle a bit of patellofemoral pain. I never have swelling though. Hope you have a great run tomorrow.

    @karllundy thanks. After talking with @shanaber I realized that I have IBS med for a reason, I should take it. I really dislike taking meds.. But like running enough I'll take them :wink:

    @shaneabner I'd rather run in the rain than in the heat any day. Good thing too, here in the Pacific Northwest we get a lot of rain. Avoiding rain would really cut down the training volume during for 1/2 of the year.

    @JimCrackinDandy good luck with your pain, your inquisitiveness makes it clear you'll get to the bottom of it.

    @rajnigandha21 Congrats on the 5km, great job, keep it up!

    @RunTimer Tourists are definitely worse than geese!

    @7lenny7 - beautiful sunset!
    @RunTimer - Fisherman's Wharf? I would not want to run through the tourists there. Will be running there in about a month though (no selfie stick I promise)!
    @mwyvr - my daughter lives in Seattle. I run in the rain there when I am visiting :) and she runs in it a lot more than me!

    Just found the thread... Awesome, put me down for 201 miles.... Yes, I am kidding....realistically 60... Ran 2 5k runs last month, only one for me this month is June 20. Would like to go under 30 min. But I only scheduled it for "fun" ... Who knows why I define things this way but my "real" 5k that I am training for is on July 4th. My goal is under 30 min. with my weight under 200 lbs at that race

    @mwyvr -I did a series of stretches specifically for IBS this am. Thought to split today between walking and running. Felt pretty good & completed 5miles (more running than walking! PTL) Thank you again
    @Elise4270 - I'm sorry to hear that you suffer with these. You certainly push through nicely! Continue to do what you're doing and run safely. It's working, 5.34miles yesterday and feeling better! That swim midweek was a good idea.

    6/3 - 3 miles
    6/5 - 3 miles
    6/6 - .75 mi.
    6/7 - 2.55 mi
    6/8 - .5 mi
    6/13 - 3.1 Run and Ride 5k

    Total 12.9 17.1 to go


    Elise 4270 - I took you advice and rested. Definitely the right choice. Thank you.

    My first real 5k went great. Started at the back of the pack and got to pass people which was nice. I stayed relaxed and listened to my body with no split goals or set pace and it was great. My chip time was a PR 40:52 but had an unplanned walk at the end when they let traffic go and we had to wait a second. I covered with a sprint to the finish and felt great. No cramps and no dizziness. I felt like I had another half mile in me LOL. Can't wait for the next one! Something about hearing your name announced as you cross the finish line is addictive.

    So after setting myself a target of 25 miles for June by ankle decided not to play ball. I have been resting it and today managed my first short run and the ankle feels fine. 1.5 miles done, 23.5 to go this month, better start catching you all up!
