First week of daylight savings…3/14-3/20

I did a double yesterday, nothing today.

The middle of the sandwich was the open house. Two couples who came to the first one came back. They both seem to be interested, but neither has pulled a trigger yet.

Had a last minute showing today… My agent (a neighbor) is going above and beyond… I wasn't prepared to show TODAY, and couldn't get away from work, so Holly came in and put the dishes i left out in the dishwasher, wiped the counters, kicked laundry into the closet, made my bed… generally tidied things up (not that it was horrible, cause I didn't have time to make THAT much of a mess after the open house, but I still had stuff out.) AND, she walked the dogs up and down the street till I got home during my lunch break.

What are you up to?

Wow, that's a great agent!! Hope you get some good news soon, Kath.

So in the true spirit of post-race recovery, I just taught my second class of the day. I taught my HIIT class at 6 am and subbed a spinning class at 6 pm. Oof. Speaking of the race, my friend told me this morning after class that we climbed the equivalent of more than 100 flights of stairs during the race, according to her Fitbit. Yowza!!

Theia, that's an impressive post-race recovery. My post-race recoveries usually involve beer, greasy food, and TV...


Kath, I've still got my fingers crossed that you get a bite on the house soon...


I ran 4.2 miles on the TM yesterday. I don't know what I'll do tonight, but I actually have time to get a good run in. I suppose I oughtta do something like 10 miles. Back when I was able to do marathons without feeling like crap, I used to do 10-mile midweek runs all the time. I can't remember the last time I did that...

Kath- wow, that is a good agent. I really hope you get an offer, I love your house and want someone else to love it too.

Theia- um, what? Sounds like USATF and USA Triathlon are lazy because it seriously isn't that hard to do age groups based off actual birthdays.

I got out to the zoo on Saturday with my friend. Got my most walking in ages, over 13000 steps on my Fitbit for the day. I need to do that more often for sure, especially since I have a membership.

THANK YOU. Especially when we self-report our ages on every registration form!

Morning 30's I got in a short run and some weights yesterday. I am feel really good lately I just need to get a better handle on what I eat. Today I am not sure what I will do as my legs are a little tired from weight yesterday.

Kath that is an awesome agent!!!

theia sounds like a great busy day.

Bob I hope you get that 10 mile mid week run in.

Nice walking Bard!!!

hi all,

a huge shout out to our weekend warriors, both those with SUPER active recoveries (ahem, theia) and those mortal like the rest of us (boB)!



AK, bella, and i showed up to the 5k on saturday to find NOONE there. the forecast was for rain in the afternoon and so apparently they cancelled the 5k in the morning.

LLLLLLLLLLLLLLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMEEEEE EEEEEEE.

but that gives you an idea of californians and their intolerance for inclement weather. i was seriously in disbelief. but there was a track so AK and i got in 1.5 miles before she (and i) started to get bored.


katho, i'm so glad your agent has been so wonderful and kind.. it helps make a stressful event a little bit more tolerable. SOMEONE, please bite and make a bid!!!!!!

bard, awesome job getting those steps in!

ron, how did DD's 1500 go?


yesterday was the first clear day in oh, 1.5 weeks or so and DH had the day off. we headed back to the stanford hills for another 4 mile hike.. this time was much more strenuous then two weeks ago when we did it. heh. i really had to take it slow on the steep inclines but we made it! a few people commented on my being up there, all nice of course, but being in NY for all those years still has me so surprised when strangers stop and talk/comment to one another

Missy, it's amazing that you still get so much running in at this point... Sucks about that race, though...


So I did manage to get in 10 miles last night. Longest midweek run in a long time. And with the basketball tournament starting tomorrow, I probably won't get in much running for the next couple days.


Speaking of which, where's Duck this week? Duck, what's your take on Oregon? Seems like nobody is giving them any chance. They seem to be the 1-seed that everybody is writing off. All the so-called experts pick Oklahoma or TAMU to win that bracket. I've seen a couple people pick Duke. But I don't think I've seen anyone pick Oregon. In and of itself, that almost makes me want to pick them, just to be different. But I'm wondering what I'm missing. They had a great year, and have been hot at the end, so what's not to like? I guess the problem is that when a team gets a top seed without a recent history of tournament success, they often flame out. But is that the only reason?

Hey Bob,

I'm around, just very busy with stuff. Our new softball stadium opens up next week and we don't have the CO (certificate of occupancy) yet. So I'm trying to get stuff ready to go without actually being in the facility. Lots of paperwork with "TBD" in the blanks. Outdoor T&F opens the next weekend, so I've got stuff to do at Hayward Field as well.

I just heard Charles Barkley pick the Ducks on the DPS for his final four (he has MSU winning it). I think it's a 50/50 with Oklahoma if we both make it to the Elite 8. I'm actually more worried about how we deal with tournament officials than I am matching up to the other teams. The Pac12 doesn't allow physical play, so it can be a shock if one of our teams plays someone like Cinci and the refs allow a really physical game. From a match-up perspective, we do everything well except shutting down 3 point specialists (an Oklahoma strength). We are extremely balanced and have 4 guys who can go off at any time with a big game. Our PG has an AST/TO ratio of 4.8, so we have really good ball security. We only play 7 regulars, but we rarely get in foul trouble. If Villanova xfer Dylan Ellis hadn't broken his foot and been lost for the year after only playing 20 minutes for us, there is a good chance we'd be ranked alongside KU as the best team in the country.

Hey, we won 2 more NCAA championships this weekend in Indoor T&F, so we are now 1 behind Florida for overall numbers. That makes 16 National Championships in my 15+ years here, which is nice.

I ran 50 minutes on the TM on Monday, and 6 on the bike trails yesterday. Scale is not budging. Need to have my mouth sewn shut.

Morning 30's I have been getting in some good runs and sessions with the weights. i am hoping to get in 30 miles for the week. It is warm here today which I am no sure if I am ready for yet.

missy she ran the 1600 in 6:02 she was disappointed. The girl on her team was way ahead of her and no one was real close to her so she took it a little too easy. She runs again tomorrow and I am thinking 5:53 for the 1600.

Bob nice 10 miles!!!

Duck nice running. I am not eating too much I just need to watch what I eat. I don't think ice cream for dinner did me any good the other night.

wooooooooooot, bob. way to get in a double digit mid week run - impressive!

ron, 30miles30miles30miles.

duck, the scale will start moving - spring is coming! you'll be out and even more active than before


ok, if anyone should know anything about the scale moving in the wrong direction, that would be ME. i'm literally the heaviest i've ever been and will start approaching DH's weight by the end of this pregnancy. but you know what? i've decided i'm going to go big or go home. if i do outweigh DH, so be it. i'm not going to try and stop it nor am i going to stress about it. that plus i've remained quite active so take that, stupid scale. so what does this all translate to?? a black/white milkshake last night, doughnuts the night before, and an extremely large slice of blueberry coffee cake today. *burp*

2 mile run yesterday along the trails with the creek filled to the brim with rushing water! i've never seen it like that.. it was pretty cool.

theres this amazing 8 mile waterfall hike (total of 4 waterfalls with the last one extending into the ocean!!) about 2 hrs north of us that we're thinking of hiking this Sunday. i'm approaching term in less than 3 wks so if there was any time to do it, it'd be now. DH is nervous because apparently there are some 3-4 ft drops/climbs and with a fairly pregnant wife and 5 year old in tow, we're not exactly ideal hiking companions for him but i'm all for it. we shall see!

That sounds lovely, Missy.

I got out for 5 miles yesterday. I've been trying to keep my pace pretty slow this spring. I'll add in some speed work soon, but basically I'm going to try to keep my slow miles slow and my speed work fast.

We have to decide whether or not to purchase the Nissan Leaf we've been leasing for the last 3 years. Nissan is offering a $7500 discount, so we can buy it for about $10,700 with the fees included. I think Amy is in love with it, so we'll probably buy it. It's got almost 35,000 miles and still has 96% of original battery capacity last I checked.

Happy Sunday 30's. I started my week with a 8.69 mile run and it was hard. It should have felt easier but it is done. I lifted a little early this morning and if I have the energy I might go back and lift some more. I also ended my week at slightly over 30 miles so that probably had something to do with my legs being a little tired this morning.

My daughter ran a 5:55 1600 meters last week which was awesome. She runs again on Thursday and it should be a little cooler so we shall see.

missy I need to take my dogs for a walk soon.

Duck that sounds like a good deal to me.

Nice running and congrats to your daughter, Ron!

I ran 8 yesterday, and did 3.5 walking at 6% grade on the TM tonight.

Took the kids skiing this morning, but after 7 runs or so it was rating hard enough that we were soaked.
