Ran 3 on the TM before work yesterday. I hate running in the morning. I also had an hour of tap last night. Once rehearsals start for the show...I'll have HOURS of tap and dancing...I'm hoping to literally dance my ass off! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
Hi all -<br><br>
50 minutes last night on the elliptical...I barely made it to the gym cause I was so sleepy.<br><br>
But another gym session tonight, if I can get there through the storm we're expecting.<br><br>
On the plus side, my <b>shin</b> has had barely a twinge in several days...I have an ART treatment on Friday, I think I'm really close to starting up my running again. YAY!<br><br>
Cause the gym is nice, but one of the things I miss about running is the simplicity - change to my running clothes, head out the door and GO.<br><br>
[plus, apply body glide, find headphones and attached nano, set watch, etc, etc!]<br><br>
I did get to check out yesterday's thread this morning- <b>Maria</b>, glad it's just a muscle strain. Take care of yourself!! Everyone else, you need new softball teams. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Have a great day, all!
I have cross training tonight on the schedule. It might be a motivation struggle as I have 5 hours of driving today and a conference to sit through. Both of those things normally drain me like nothing else but hopefully I'll show a little dedication when I get home. Happy runs, walks, workouts, etc to everyone.
morning! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"><br><br>
4 sleazy yesterday, 5 today.<br><br>
glad it's just a strain, <b><span style="color:#008000;">Maria</span></b>!<br>
hope your leg is getting better, <b>Tom</b><br>
are you feeling better, <b>Heather</b>???
We're supposed to get some pretty nasty weather over here so I got into work at 6:45 to be able to get home early. I brought my gym bag but if they weather is really bad I will work through lunch to get out of here even earlier.<br><br>
They are calling for 5-8 inches during the day of sleet, snow and freezing rain and more tonight. People around here tend to drive like idiots when the weather is bad so I want to be out of here before the mayhem.
I'm not sure what's on tap yet today, something around 5 miles or maybe a little more. I'm needing a structured training program, that will start by the end of next week. As long as someone/something, even a book, tells me how far to run and how fast, I'm all good; if I have to make it up on my own, I'm lost. I like being a "student", I guess.<br><br>
We got in some good, bad tennis last night. Maybe that can be my speedwork, it certainly feels like it. It also was a good reason to continue my denial of the need to get to work on the Christmas shopping.<br><br>
Everyone stay safe in that nasty weather today!
Pilates is done for the day. I think I should get extra credit for doing it and concentrating while Hank was peek a booing (and saying rrrrr rrrr rrrr) at me from under the bed and sitting on me. Gah. <b>Katholeenie</b>....our boys should meet.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Also have a sack o soup ready. (i cut up all the stuff for potato soup so i can get it started and transfer it to the crock pot while im at a basketball game tonight).<br><br><span style="color:#008000;">Maria</span> I am so glad everything is a-ok with you!
<b>Mandaroo</b> Odin does the same thing as Hank! Kind of hard to do any floor exercises w/ him around.<br><br>
Pilates already done this morning. 5k on the tmill tonight followed by a new yoga class.<br><br><b>Maria</b> Good news - glad it's only a strain.<br><br><b>Jenruns</b> I, too, need a plan to follow. Otherwise I tend to slack off a bit. I need the accountability. Is that a Saint in your avatar? I've always wanted one - gave my dh a choice between a saint and a dane.<br><br>
Good runs, all!
This weather, bleah. I don't know what it'll be like later this afternoon, if it's utterly miserable I'll pass on doing a run or walk even.<br><br>
Cranked out a good number of pull ups and push ups last night.
<b>Auntie Moe</b> - Good luck with the dance-your-ass-off plan<br><br>
Maples - nothing like an easy run to clear out the cobwebs after a day of sitting on your keister in cars and conferences.<br><br><b>Jill</b> - take care of that shin. I need to finish reading yesterday's thread - what happened?<br><br>
Me - 4.5 on the mill, some striders\pickups over the last 3/4 mile.
Checked out the website and I've got a new 1st 1/2 marathon picked out.....<b>Skunk Cabbage</b>. I did not notice a 2008 date but 2007's was April 1st. I'm going to assume, for now, it's approximately the same time in 2008.<br><br>
So now to find another good 1/2 training plan that is ~ 12 weeks long. Thoughts? Recommendations?
No runs or other activity for me today, I have choir practice this evening, and it would be rude to show up all stinky and sweaty from a run. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Laughing"> They like to ask me about my races, but I figure I don't need to give them the smell-o-vision version.<br><br>
It's cold and rainy here. Too bad it isn't likely to clear up, or I'd get in a walk at lunch time.
