Sorry, folks. It appears as if I am sucker. I responded to the Blogger marketing that prompted me to move my Blogger account to my gmail account (which I just set up, thinking this was a cool, technologically progressive thing to do).
Now, it will not let me comment on any of your blogs! It says that I am not allowed to use my account to post to a non-beta blog, or some bulls*#t.
Anyone else get sucked in and figure out how to find their way out?

Think Sammy Hagar circa 1984. Guitars and drums blazing. "I CAN RUN... 55!".
Granted, slightly lame, but I needed some sort of anthem to celebrate. I now know that I can run 55 miles total in a week. I just did it.
Recap of week 11 - PR for weekly mileage
Mon 8/28: 6 miles w/6x100m strides - Celebrated my 31st year
Tue 8/29: 12 miles w/Yasso repeats - track work at Plainfield Central HS
Wed 8/30: Rest
Thurs 8/31: 12 miles med-long - Ran strong in 1:35 - Local Plainfield routes
Fri 9/1: Recovery 5 miler in 44:30 - Completely ran on feel - no idea of pace, but it feel just around sub-9
Sat 9/2: TWENTY large in 2:36:45 - Wheaton CARA running team heading West and North on the Prairie path. Miles 1-10 were mostly 8's. Average pace on miles 11-20 was 7:39 - Kevin B ran me to a 10:36 on our last 1.5 miles (~7:04 pace).
Total for the week: 55 miles - MILEAGE GOAL REACHED.
Week 12 Plan - Target of 49 miles
Mon 9/4: 8 miles - V02 max workout - 5x600m @ 5k race pace - jog 90 sec in btw
Tue 9/5: 11 miles - Medium-long general aerobic pace
Wed 9/6: Rest
Thu 9/7: 4 miles - Recovery+speed - 6x100m strides
Fri 9/8: 9 miles - Supposed to be tune-up race, but will run lactate threshold pace to simulate (6:55)
Sat 9/9: 17 miles - Long run
Sun 9/10: Rest
I finally caved... The Garmin Forerunner 305 is on order. After my Polar RS200's heart rate function faultered, I felt a little lost over the past couple of weeks. When I saw Buy.com pushing it for $259 with free shipping (down from $349), I pulled the trigger.
