Hey Team! I thought I'd start up a new thread for us this week.<br><br>
This is my *cutback* week on the Marathon training schedule, but will still be getting in at least 31 miles, plus some xtraining since it's a lower mileage week for me.<br><br>
We did absolutely awesome over the weekend everyone! Thanks to ALL of you for doing what you were able to do on what was probably a busy weekend for most folks. And if you did any swimming on Friday - Sunday, please remember to count your 5 bonus points.<br><br>
Let's keep the momentum going Team!!

So for me today... 30 minutes of alt and then 5.30 miles of running and walking. I think I have decided that I need lots of stretching and such to keep the calf from bothering me again. I was able to have an enjoyable run with 66 degree temperatures. Keep up the good work everyone.

I did 45 minutes of yoga last night and 30 minutes on the bike this morning. I hope to do yoga again tonight - it is really helping the tightness I have been feeling.

Crap, we are in 4th????<br><br>
This week is swimming, swimming, and more swimming again. I feel bad that I cannot rack up huge points right now.<br><br>
I get to swim at the Ohio State Aquatics Center on Friday!!! Going to Ohio to see my sister and then to Michigan for a wedding this weekend.

18 min running in water = 6 points (I'd rather be on the XX track...)<br>
700 yards swimming = 7 points<br>
5 min. stretching = 1 point

Hi Team!<br><br>
How are you feeling Chosha? This flu stuff is pretty nasty this year - hope you are on the upswing!<br><br>
MMom - nice workout - how did your foot feel during the pool running? bother you at all?<br><br>
I ran 5 mi during my lunch hr, plus walked 1/4 mile. I'll get in more tonight, but I've added my 21 pts so far. Last night after work, I took my dogs for a walk and did yoga stretches and ab work. I logged those points in even though I never mentioned it here or the daily. I forgot.<br><br>
I think we are currently sitting in 4th, but 2nd, 3rd and 4th places are all real tight together. And we have a few members we haven't heard from in a couple days, so we might have some unaccounted for points that are yet to be entered.<br><br>
Hey - this weekend's bonus points are "running!" <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> I think we'll all get those!

This is a high mileage week for me - I am scheduled for 50 - yikes! I may swap some of that for cycling, but will make sure it is equal pointwise. and I will try to do yoga as many nights as possible. Tonight I am going to do it while watching the biggest loser. I am addicted to that show for some reason - kind of like watching a train wreck, you just can't look away.

Hello everyone. I have not put in my workout for the day. Today I had 4 miles of running and 20 minutes of alt. The rest of the week looks busy for me Though. I am going to try to get in a track workout tomorrow before a storm moves iin for Wednesday night/Thursday morning. I should have 25 miles running and some swimming on Friday. Keep up the great work and we should be in great shape for the overall standings.

You all are amazing... we're back in third (and it's relatively close!)<br><br>
Thank heavens for VRAA... pool time has some feedback for my competitive soul. (Thanks for asking, Tam... I think I did about as much as I could get away with... but it really felt good to get in some exercise.)

I never did do the yoga I promised. I ended up laying in bed with my kids reading them books. Sorry!<br><br>
This morning I ran 5 and stretched for 15 minutes.
