<p>I suppose I could start the fitness thread too.  I will be doing airport walking and then more walking once I hit SF.  Probably nothing else of note.</p>

<p>I'm going to run at some point today and do lots of stretching.  Thursday I did an awesome kickboxing class then yester an intense boot camp class.  Last night I went to a kundalini yoga class and this morning I am soooooo sore from all 3!  So I'm thinking later I will do a short run and then maybe a gentle yoga dvd or my stretching dvd....</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Can I just say how psyched I am to be so sore and working my muscles all the time again!  I missed all the pain, haha.</p>

<p>Well, on my longer runs, I run with my strap-on bottle.  It's got a little zippered pouch, and by default I keep a couple bucks in there in case I need to stop somewhere and buy another bottle of Gatorade.  So I come prepared.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>

<p>Perfect running weather in GR!  53F.  6.6 easy miles that really felt easy despite how hilly where I ran was.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Just need to shower up and get some breakfast to settle in for a long day on the couch with some college football.</p>

<p>I did my first open water swim since the tri in June!  Yesterday afternoon and a friend's house (she lives across the street from a lake). We both had a "oh shit!" moment, but got through the first half of the out and back.  The back part was pretty good, once I just put my head down and swam.  I got off track a couple of time, but overall OK.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Today is a run.  But since it won't be un godly hot, I can go wherever I want!!!</p>

<p>YAY TOnya!!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>4 miles alone, then 1.5 with Gus for his first run since maybe April? It's been waaaaaaay too hot/humid to have him run, and it was finally in the 50s this morning. (I won't run him in over 60°. He just gets hot and stops. Plus he is getting old and I don't want him to have a heart attack.)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>He was SO freaking happy. It was very funny. So 5.5 total for me, and then yoga. Except for the arthritis in my foot throbbing from the weather change (dropped 25° overnight) it was completely delicious. </p>

<p>Huh - I was the only volunteer that showed up today!  So I manned 2 of the 4 planned water stops and the other two were scratched.  One of the regular guys volunteered to scrap his run and man a stop but the volunteer coordinator said no, let's have this be a lesson for all these other folks who come and run every weekend and never offer to volunteer.  They were thirsty runners by the time they got to me - I was pouring Gatorade and water as fast as I could! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Just ate a PB&J and I'm gonna head out for my own 6 mile run. wheee!  Like <strong>Tonya</strong> said, it's SO nice to be able to run at about any point during the day and not have to get out there pre dawn to beat the heat!  </p>

<p>Nice job everyone!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Join me among the ranks of those with awesome weather!  I slept in and went out for my run just after 10.  It was 57 degrees at the start and 65 degrees at the finish.  It's windy out there - but awesome running weather for a change.  Put 20 miles in the books with the last mile the fastest mile (8:14)!</p>

<p>I did the Ali MacGraw: Yoga Mind & Body DVD tonight.  I had done this yoga workout before but I still would have benefitted from watching it first.  I had to stop and look a couple times to see what they were doing. But I think it's a pretty good one, I may have to buy a copy. I feel like buttah.  mmmmmm namaste!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Up bright and early tomorrow for 12 miles!  </p>

<p>nice 20 & strong finish <strong>RiL</strong></p>
<p>nice weather here too although i had to wait until the hottest part of the day to get my 15 1/4 miles in yesterday. i felt like a lumbering piece of crap but managed to sneak in 8X18 second strides in at the end.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>i dunno, take my man card away but i'm just not a college football fan. my alma mater has really strict rules on tailgating (no beers allowed after noon, only in this little parking lot, etc) and i saw some things while in school (from our bigger sports) that instilled a really bitter taste in my mouth. i'm guessing that's the root of my lack of interest. i'm all for beers & tailgating though.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>thumbs up to you <strong>goon</strong> for volunteering. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>hi <strong>heather</strong>! nice to read 'ya.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>hope we get a chance to put our pots back in today.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>cheers</p>

<p>5K for me this morning!  However, my legs are pretty tight from my 20 miler yesterday.  I will probably run with DS#1 to try help pace him rather than try to race it. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ooooh - and I forgot to mention - it is currently 46 degrees!  Woo hoo!</p>
