Well <i>this</i> sleepy right-coaster was up at 5:45 burping a baby. Planning an easy 5 this afternoon in our 27 steamy degrees.<br><br>
Hi Cfli, mariposai, evanflein, and other new arrivals.<br><br>
I doubt rosie will be reading this today, but I'm wishing her successful surgery and a good start along the road back to healthy running.

Street still a bit too icy, especially for running in the dark, so did 3.3 on the TM in the basement this morning. Better running to the rest of you!

Went to my quarterly Drs appt yesterday...weight down, BP down, cholesterol down, Dr happy! Hey this running stuff is good for you...who knew?<br><br>
I'm hoping to get in 3 miles after work...we're expecting rain, hopefully not enough to keep me inside...but we do need the rain.<br><br>
I tried some planking the last two days with my morning coffee. I'm not sure if I'm doing it right but was able to hold the forward for 1 1/2 minutes, my arms seemed to be the limiting factor, fully extended arm like the top of a push up. The side planks were harder, about 20 sec each side...lifted on my elbow. I can feel my abs this morning so maybe I'm doing something...never heard of a plank before this site!!<br><br>
Here's hoping good runs to all today!

Hello guys. Are all the ladies sleeping in? All that XT must be wearing them down.<br><br>
{{Rosie}}<br><br>
Last night I met up with RunsTheBitterroot (and loyal friend Roy) for a 4-mile run, and put in another 4 this morning. Larry is a classy guy.<br><br>
Ken, that's great news! I wish diet and exercise were enough to keep my cholesterol under control. I still need medication. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"><br><br>
Welcome, new and old friends.

Weird start to my day. good xt workout - 30 mins elliptical, 10 mins rowing, free weights etc and stretching. Got showered and dressed only to discover I had brought 2 different shoes, one is brown and other is black. That's not so bad, but the big problem is that there's about an inch difference in the heel height.<br><br>
BTW, only 12 degrees here this morning. Brrrr!<br><br>
Sigh.<br><br>

Thinking good thoughts for Rose...<br><br>
I always liked rocking my baby boys in the wee hours of the morning when the house was dark and quiet. Or bringing them to bed with me to nurse... Where does the time go? Eldest will be 24 next week.<br><br>
Mill, glad to hear you ran with Larry. I hope to go on some trails with him someday when I visit my son.<br><br>
Busy day for me with 1/2 day work, Pilates, running, routine mammogram, xmas shopping, and yoga in that order. Snow supposedly on the way.<br><br>
Was thinking of a friend after reading Dr Dale's post about saving lives last night. Remember my friend who won the Bizz Johnson HM when I ran it? Well, he has an aortic valve leak and is currently going through tests and trying to figure out his surgical options. His doc has restricted him from all vigorous exercise. Tough times for him as he's quite an accomplished athlete. Finding the balance between the safest procedure vs best (and longest term) outcome for your lifestyle would be very difficult. Thank god for dedicated doctors.<br><br>
Time to shower.

Good snowy morning here in the central U.S. I ran 4 miles at 6 a.m. It was 24F and not snowing yet; snow didn't start 'till I got home.<br><br>
Ken, that's great news about your "numbers". Mill, I'm glad you and RTB got together for a run. Riley, you had me laughing again. (I don't know which is funnier, the shoes or the backwards running bra!). C'daa, burping a baby doesn't sound so bad - it's just that you have to do it at all hours of day and night. When my daughters were infants I knew the entire overnight TV lineup. (I caught up on all the old episodes of Starsky and Hutch, Charlie's Angels, CHips...you get the idea. I actually kind of enjoyed it).<br><br>
Have a good day, all.

<span style="font-family:Arial;">Welcome new Masters!</span><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">No running today; sore calves from snow frolic yesterday.</span><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">The bike commute was a brisk 8F this morning, about equal parts bare pavement, packed icy snow, and crunchy frozen slush. It will be 30 by the time I go home.</span><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">They’re experimenting with a new ice melt solution in some parts of Ohio; not here yet. Liquid waste from beet processing helps depress the freezing point of the brine so less salt is used, which is better for the environment. Deer and other animals won’t be attracted to lick the roads because there’s no sugar left in the beet waste.</span><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">Cool beets.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/cool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Cool"></span><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">Have a good day everyone. Go lady XT'ers!</span>

Do I seem like a space cadet? Different shoes and backwards running bras? Some days I do feel like one, but usually I'm one of those well-organized people who are almost never late for anything. Oh well. At least this is a short day for me; I'm leaving work at 3:30 to go home early & empty the dogs before heading out to finish my Christmas shopping. I still need to get running socks for my youngest, who's doing his first HM in the late spring up in Montreal; gifts for DH; a gift for one niece; and a bunch of stocking stuffers. Not bad, I should be able to finish all that up in one fell swoop at the mall and nearby shops.<br><br>
More about my morning workout today. I tried some new assisted chinup types of upper body exercises and I'm hoping this will help strengthen my shoulders, upper back, etc. They were fun and I almost felt like I was flying. You kneel on a pad and set the weight, and then do chin ups, dips, etc. It was kinda exhilarating! Plus I did a lot of abdominal work with those giant balls, so that was a bit different too. Yesterday I did no exercise except for my PT type of things for my calves and plantar fasciitis. Tomorrow I plan to run 3 miles again.<br><br>
Have a great day all. I'm thinking of Rosie -- she and I have had several conversations about her surgery so I'm anxious to hear how she does.<br><br>

Good morning everyone!<br><br>
Hurray Ken A!! That's wonderful news! Careful on your feet Riley!<br><br>
10.1 miles this morning. Felt like 20. Absolutely no sproink at all! After 4, I wanted to turn for home but decided to just take down the pace. A mile from home I said to myself, only about 9 more minutes. I looked at my Garmin, 7.9. WHAT!! UGH!! I had to add another mile. I managed to slug it out and hit the driveway at 10.1. Turns out my overall time was only 3 minutes slower than normal. Was it worth it? Yes, I would have beat myself up if I quit.<br><br>
Happy running all!

I am hoping that Larry had a camera with him Mill and will post some photos of the two of you when he arrives home.<br><br>
Sending positive vibes to Rosie with her surgery.

No heatwave here to crow about but days of sunshine to come. Dave, I understand what you meant in the Weekly about the walk/running being difficult. I ran Monday and will again tomorrow and Sunday; it seems like so little and I'm doing my best to beee-have, but it's a toughie. Are we going to meet BabyBurp in AZ (I hope I hope)?<br><br>
Nice to see Night hawk and his dead ass back. Hi, papillon!<br>
KenA! (dancing HDLs and planks)<br>
mill, have a handful of <a href="http://216.185.112.5/presenter.jhtml?identifier=3004459" target="_blank">almonds</a>. I'm planting an almond tree this spring. Nothing like the fragrance of almond flowers.<br>
Borscht for deer FF? Cool.<br>
C-fli, you might consider swimming to millbot's X-training thread.<br>
gin, way to battle!<br>
Susan, pharmacist told me to measure my calf for the sleeve and said I needed a large. I harumphed her advice and said I'd take the medium. Too small. I know I have fairly "healthy" lower legs, but, geez.<br><br>
TM, trail, road, hills, desert -- it all counts. Enjoy. Can't wait to be a regular runner again. Not long now. Back later with rowing stats.<br><br><b>ETBoss:</b> Labduck, I know Mrs. L. wouldn't dream of it; however, I have little problem in bossing out the suggestion to try rowing. I understand there is a technique without a push-off (that <i>may</i> aggravate PF). Might be worth asking someone who knows. A little variation to the TrekMill, which sounds great. BTW, have you seen the podiatrist your physician recommended?

Sorry hally, but unless Larry had a spycam hidden in his headlamp, he didn't take any pictures.<br><br>
SS, thanks for the heads up on almonds.

Good vibes out to Rose!<br>
Mr. Forward got to save a guy's life in a Trader Joes check out line. His heart suddenly stopped. It is great to be a paramedic at times like that. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
(Cat wrestling is getting to be my new expertise. I wonder if there are competitions I can enter.)<br><br><i>I love almonds.</i>

Define "glass," tw. (What a <i>pane</i> that break-in, eh?)<br><br>
Oh, this is in millbot's bailiwick. I do like to boss but gotta have limits.<br><br>
