Hey Hey Hey..<br><br>
Morning all.<br>
Puppy walk in the books for the morning, headed for the showers, a mid-day workout planned, maybe 4 on the run and some core stuff.<br><br>
Hope everyone's weekends were outstanding.<br><br><b>Lori</b> - hoping your uncle continues to improve.<br><br>
Looks like I may be in Philly in the next month or so..don't know if I"ll have time for a run, but maybe ... anyone ? anyone? Bueller?<br>
(And <b>LL</b>, I'd love to, but dude, you're way way way too fast for me!)<br><br>
No QOD from me, no Q's at all until I have some coffee.<br><br><b>Mandy,</b> what's up with the J.O.B?<br><br><b>Totally Random, Theia</b> - I thought of you this weekend when I caught Never Been Kissed on TNT - Drew Barrymore is forever correcting peoples bad grammar, can I call you Josie now? <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Just popping in to inform those jealous of my 10-hour sleep that last night was back to normal... Went to bed after 11, read until I couldn't keep my eyes open, tossed and turned, had weird dreams, woke up two times to check the clock, and finally awoke for good 75 minutes before the alarm was due to go off. Bah.<br><br>
Have a great week!! <img alt="icon_salut.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_salut.gif"><br><br>
P.S. Hi Jen! Love, Josie.

Morning, early risers!<br><br>
I'm up waiting on my taxi to the airport...why do they come so early?!?<br><br><b>Jen -</b> I caught that very same movie this weekend. Maybe it was the grammar (or more likely Michael Vartan), but there you go.<br><br>
Finally caught <b>Harry Potter</b> last night - I enjoyed it very much, though was disappointed at some of the book items that were left out. But I'm never satisfied.<br><br>
Managed to get <b>5</b> in yesterday, we'll see what I'm up for tonight (I hope Baltimore isn't too steamy).<br><br><b>Timr1 -</b> you in town this week? Let me know if you're still up for some Chipotle or coffee.<br><br>
Have a good day, all!<br><br>
Oh, PS, <b>Nettie</b> posted an ankle question in the Side Line and I'm also having ankle pain (lots of limping ths morning) - if anyone has any thoughts on ankles, please check it out! I'm interested in what responses are (though her ankle issues sound more severe than mine)...

Morning all.<br><br>
We could probably have an <b>insomnia</b> QOD. As in, do you have it?<br><br>
My shoulder is (probably) an AC joint tear. Thanks, <b>kp.</b> The bruise fits the description and the mechanism of injury is perfect. I hope that is the only thing. It is well torn, though. Going to get a sling today. Have no strength in right arm at all. Need a new car for a few weeks - don't think I can drive stick with this thing!<br><br>
I will see what the actual ortho says, and not just wikipedia, though. <img alt="surprised.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/surprised.gif">

Morning everyone! Just wanted to pop in to say, it's unlikely I'll be around in full force as I have been, so I'll be catching up at night or in the morning and I'll you all catch up to my posts numbers. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Morning gang.<br><br>
Posted last night...no run, but got in a little over 12 miles on my bike in the neighborhood before it got too cloudy and scary looking. Biking is much more about the quads than running, I'm discovering. Hopefully this will help strengthen my knees a little more??? And give me the ol' kick in the pants that I need to get back out there on a regular schedule. And, in honor of all the new-ish <b>du and tri people</b> I want to start posting that I did brick workouts, too. I think I will sound tough...but that might not be such a good thing. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> Non-30's guys might be scared off...<br><br><b>Yay Craney!!!</b> Loved your 30's synopsis last night...you gotta put that in the Dictionary. Just gotta...<br><br><b>Winter</b>...continued good vibes to your little guy.<br><br>
Welcome <b>HighHeat</b>. Me loves baseball...<img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br><b>Doc</b>...<img alt="confused.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/confused.gif"> damn. You are truly <b>badass</b>. I second you getting some cutie to be your nurse and...oh wait. You probably already have one of those...<img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

NYC Marathon training officially kicks off today with a 6 mile run planned for tonight.<br><br>
Kinda of a quiet week, although DW is traveling Tuesday - Friday so it'll get crazy for me after today.<br><b><br>
Jen</b> - Come on now, I can run at a slower pace too! We could at least get together for a beer. Let us Philly peeps know when you're coming.<br><br><b>QOD</b> - Nope.<br><br>
Have a great day everyone!

Oops...posted before I was actually through...(fast KR servers! teehee)<br><br><b>QOD:</b> Insomnia? Probably not in the classic sense, but when I get upset (usually relationship related) I have a hard time <i>staying</i> asleep. Mind just is too full of thinking...it's not good. Otherwise I sleep really well. Guess that's the good part of being single.

Good morning, all. Woohoo!! Taking the day off of work! I'm gonna head out for a run pretty soon, and then Maggie and I have a ton of errands to get done. (She's also taking the day off). Maybe not the most fun way to spend a day off, but it's still better than being at work. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br><b>LL</b> reminds me... If his NYC training plan kicks off this week, then my Philly training should be kicking off two weeks from now. And I still haven't picked a training plan. I used the Beginner's plan on <a href="http://www.runnersworld.com/article/0,7120,s6-238-244-255-6946-0,00.html" target="_blank">this page</a> at RunnersWorld.com for my first two marathons, and then I used the Intermediate plan on that page for my next two. (The fifth marathon didn't really use a plan, I guess). So what do I do now? The Intermediate again? The Advanced? Something else? Hmm...<br><br>
Happy Monday, everyone...

I'm back from a weekend away in <b>Bethesda, MD</b> for a wedding. For anyone not familiar <b>Bethesda</b> is sort of a hybrid community... it kind of has a city feel, but it seems more like a suburb. It did have a nice "rails to trails" trail called the "Crescent Trail" and I managed to get 10 miles or so on it on Sunday.<br><br>
I haven't caught up on the tread yet from the weekend.<br><br><b>Staci</b> that's awesome news about your sister!!! Congratulations.

Hey kiddos!<br><br>
Thank you again for all the well wishes for my uncle. Yesterday wasn't a great day for him but he still seems to be on a bit of an upswing. This holding pattern is maddening but we are holding it together!!! Hey <b>Pacer</b>, I know you catch mor than you share of flack around here but your reply to me yesterday was just about the most perfect thing I could have read, I sincerely appreciate it!!!<br><br>
So did the American Cancer Society Bike Tour yesterday. I rode across the Ben franklin Bridge. I do believe I held my breath the entire way!!!! I was freaked out (I am terrified of heights!!) but did it!!!! The ride itself was so much fun!!!! A couple of rough stretches where the road was awful and it was all in the sun and darn hot! Then the last 2 miles were an open flat stretch and there were lots of signs in memory of people and then one that said "Who are you riding for?" and I ran through the list in my mind. WOw, it was long! But I did realize that while I unfortunately know a lot of people who lost their battle, I do know lots of survivors! Their strength made my ride seems like nothing!!!!<br><br><b>LHills Tim</b> sorry you are in a funk. I get in a funk every year at my mom's anniversary, it is the worst kind of <b>teh suck</b> possible! Think good thoughts today but give yourself persmission to be sad!!! Sending lots of hugs to yuo today!!!!<br><br>
So um the picture of <b>Myron</b> from the other day, um yeah, good stuff!!!!!!!<br><br><b>Jen</b> when will you be in Philly?! LL is too fast and I am too slow but I can drink beers with the best of 'em!!!!! Definately need to try to do dinner or drinks when you are here. It is ridiculous you have been on my "to meet" list for almost 3 years!!!!<br><br>
QOD: Yep, definately not a good sleeper. Andit goes in cycles, I can go a month or 2 with a regular sleep pattern and then BOOM! I am up all night, barely stay awake during the day, it is awful. I have been to the doc for it many times, have Ambien and all that good stuff but sometimes I just have to deal with it and ride it out!<br><br>
Ok, I am super long winded!!! Sorry!<br><br>
Oh, welcome back <b>Auntie Moe,</b> wemissed you!!!

Good luck to lil sis. And happy to hear your back is better.<br><br>
Wikipedia - that's where us non medical folks get info!! Joking aside, hope it is something manageable.<br><br>
If that scares them off, it is their loss. Is the Pilot still around?<br><br><b>Craney</b> - just 2nding and 3rd-ing what everyone else has said - your synopsis was wonderful.<br><br><b>Winter</b> glad to hear your little one is on the mend, and I am with you on children's hospitals.<br><br><b>QOD</b> Sometimes, always stress related.<br><br>
Got in a nice <b>east</b> 6 this morning. Felt good, back is not too bad.<br><br>
Still kinda bummed. My mom passed away on July 16th last year.<img alt="" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/icons/icon9.gif" style="border:0px solid;">

<b>Bob</b> - I used that Runner's World plan for the PIG. I was planning on using a more intensive plan (one of the Runner's World customized smart coach plans) but the more I think about it the more I think what worked for the PIG should work for NY as well. So in a nutshell I think I'll use the same plan that I used for the PIG.<br><br><b>Tim</b> - My condolences.

<b>Ann</b>, cycling works the muscles on the front of the legs a lot more than runnin, and can be very good for strengthening stability around the knee.<br><br><b>DocChris</b>, ouch on the shoulder. Shoulder troubles are no fun at all, I went through a frozen shoulder in 2004 and that sucked.<br><br>
I had an easy week last week with the running. And the cycling. No cycling, actually. I should call it a lazy week. I don't know, maybe that was good to give myself a really thorough rest after 12 weeks. I feel ready to pick things up again tomorrow morning. Got a 5K on the schedule for Saturday, then Sunday I plan on doing a recovery jog. Yep, going to the 4 days per week schedule.<br><br>
That's all I can think of right now.

<b>TimLitch</b>...big hugs to you today. And thanks for the nice words. Yeah, ThePilot is still around, but it's been weird and not really what I want lately, but I don't know what to do about it. <img alt="confused.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/confused.gif"><img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br>
But that's something else entirely. No time right now...

Mornin all.<br>
Adventures with pup yesterday. Put in one of those barrier deals in pick up (my truck is on the DL) its not a great fit, but still seems to work pretty well. He has crazy driving anxiety or something. Trying to get in front seat, pacing...gah. Took him to a flint quarry (from back in the day when they made arrow heads) cooked out and hiked and watched frogs. Pup loves frogs.... He was soooo good.<br><br><b>Staci</b> did mat give you his history geek rap about this place? Its rad. Better than the mounds if you ask me. He has a magazine to send you from the historical society. Love to lil sis and new chalupa.<br><br><b>Winter</b> that is horrible. I also get stressed out in children's hospitals. Love to your boy. Ari was in one about a year ago and was in one of those hospital crib things... When I walked in she said, "ohhh, Auntie Mandy....Can i get outta my cage?" Later, when Beyonce was on TV and her doc was in there talking to Mom and Dad she said, "shake it auntie!!!" Egad.<br><br><br><b>Jen</b> I am waiting like the 40 year old virgin, girl. ack. Lita (who's taught for like almost 30 years) says, job is locked down, its just a matter of half or full time. Terry told me cuz since i've not signed the contract, he wants me to be able to bounce if I find something better Most principals wouldn't have done that.<br><br><b>Doc</b> that just means if someone is in your bed, you don't wanna sleep. Totally logical, my man. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br><b>QOD</b>: Yeah. Runs in my family. I don't remember waking up feeling like it was time to get up...uh ever. My first waking thought is usually, 'oh hell.' When my stress level gets cranked up, I don't sleep at all. It's just me and nick at nite. This can go on for weeks, me falling asleep at 3 or 4. Then I get all caffined out because I have to cope somehow and get all tweaky and jumpy. It blows. Really. I'm pretty active and productive in my regular days, so I wonder a lot if I were getting 7 or 8 square, how much I could get done with my day. I can't take naps. Even when I had mono. Grf. <img alt="sad2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif"><br><br>
Ok. Off to have my research team watch the videos of me teach at Africentric. Oh Lord. I know they ain't ready....<br><br>
Oh yeah. Planning on 2-3 with favorite pup at the park before my boy Russell's baseball game.

I got the same exact problem - but it's in BOTH arms!!<br><br>
Morning, all! Nice weather here today - we had a wicked rainstorm for 20-30 minutes yesterday afternoon and I think it knocked some humidity out of the air. We'll see at lunchtime when I go running!<br><br><b>LLBigAppleMarathoner and GatorBob</b> - I put together my training for NYC last night, not officially starting until mid August. With my pacing duties (I said duties!!) I've got a pretty good endurance base to go off, so my training is more about speed for the first 5 weeks and then strength the next 7 weeks. I always take bits & pieces from other programs and kinda throw together what works - I've not really put pen to paper to write down what I want to do for a long time so this will hopefully get me a big improvement by having a more organized plan. Usually, I know what I need to work on and I have a rough idea what I'll be doing for the next 2-4 weeks. I'm happy to send you my plan and you can see the structure of it and adjust it to your running.<br><br>
I'm officially getting excited about San Francisco - my daughter is looking forward to it and we're starting to kick around ideas about what we'll do and see while there. The course looks pretty cool - much of it along the bay, a nice amount through Golden Gate Park, the GG Bridge of course...should be fun. We're leaving the baby behind so we don't have to take the humongous plastic things that a baby apparently requires so that will make us a little more mobile.<br><br>
Anyways - have a good day!

I forgot to mention that I bought the strap on on Saturday. 10% off, it's got a squirty tip, seems fairly firm, fits comfortably in the hand, I think it should get a good workout.
