Hoorah! Looks like a fun team! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
FYI- I will be MIA- out on a XC ski trip- the first 3 days; I will log points for those days on the 10th.<br><br>
I'm looking forward to running with you!
I am ready to get going and start racking up points. We are going to have a great time.<br><br>
I don't "know" a lot of you, and am looking forward to that changing. Outside of claiming our victory, what are everyone's fitness goals right now? Are you training for any races, etc?
I'm training for the <a href="http://www.bsim.org/The_Twenty_Third_Presentation.htm" target="_blank">Big Sur Marathon</a> on April 27. It looks like a great race- along highway one and all. My goal time is 4:30; my first marathon was Marine Corps a couple of years ago and I finished it in 4:34- no big hill in the middle, though! <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"> I've been including hills in my LSD runs, and my calves are feeling it.<br><br>
Thanks for all of the great info you have posted on KR, sisterGH; glad to be running with you! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
I don't really have any particular goals at the moment actually just hoping to get my cast off my arm as soon as possible. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br><br>
Does anyone have any ideas for a team name?
Coyote -- thank you, and good luck with your Big Sur preparations. I've heard it's a hard but gorgeous course. I am trying to get as many hills in as I can too training for Boston, but in my coastal area it is challenging.<br><br>
Captain Snowboy -- when does the cast come off? Have you been able to do anything to work out in the meantime -- stationary bike?<br><br>
startingover -- if you do decide on a 10K, we'll get some race bonus points! How far along is your training?
Hopefully next wednesday. I go to the doctor for x-rays depending on what they show i either stay in the hard cast or i get a soft cast brace type thing.<br><br>
I have been riding my dads stationary bike and elliptical machine.
I'm wandering aimlessly in my workouts these days. I took a break from running to focus on lifting for a while a few months ago. Now, I'm trying to build back into running while maintaining my lifting schedule. I have no real goals at this point other than a general desire to improve overall.<br><br>
I couldn't think up anything good for a team name, but we really need to put something out there for the sake of free bonus points.
I am in week 9. I am not a racer, I run for the fitness benefit. I am very very slow, but I enjoy myself. I started running as a way to continue to lose weight. The first 110 pounds were pretty easy the last 33 are a pain in the ass.
No ideas for a team name; sorry! But SistaGH, I must admit that my goals are pretty pedestrian. I'm just running to keep fit, healthy, and thin enough to wear my favorite jeans!<br><br>
I have a 2 mile race coming up 3/16. I'm a really, really, really slow runner (I identify with John Bingham, the penguin, "waddle on friends"<img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"> as I get out of breath very easily. But I do rack up a lot of points with extensive XT. I go to the gym 6 times a week, and run at least 3 of those times; usually 3-4 miles each time. I'm trying to increase my distance. Before I tore my calf muscle in late September, I was running 5-6 miles each time. This was the 2nd time I've torn the same calf muscle, so I'm increasing verrrrryyyy slowly to avoid repeat injuries.<br><br>
