Ides of January.<br><br>
So how y'all feeling? I'm feeling better now that I've taken a couple days of rest. Should be able to run after work this afternoon, plan on doing only about 5 miles.<br><br>
I came across a decent online article which I think matches up well with the ideas and philosophy I've been trying to achieve with my working out.<br><br><a href="http://health.msn.com/fitness/articlepage.aspx?cp-documentid=100184336" target="_blank">http://health.msn.com/fitness/articl...ntid=100184336</a>

Good morning <b>Scratch</b> and those who follow.<br><br>
I am so tired right now. My neighbor didn't show up for our morning run.<img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> Since I have speedwork scheduled for later in the day, I just decided to bag the run, but for some strange reason, I didn't get back to sleep.<br>
Must. Make. Coffee.

morning <img alt="wave.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wave.gif"><br><br>
On the TM by 5am for 5 miles before work. No sleep last night (too much in my head) so today's going to be a looooooong day. I feel good after my run, though. Now I need to hustle to get to work!<br><br>
Becca - I'll take some of that coffee, please <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Howdy, folks. I had a nice interval run on the TM last night: 7.25 miles total, at an average pace of 8:17. I'm pleased with that pace over that distance. Tonight will be an easy 3, maybe on the TM again.<br><br>
Hope you all have a great day...

Didn't get out with the group last night. I don't think they went. At least I assumed they didn't since it was storming like crazy. I think my exercise today will consist of shovelling the driveway.

Morning all. 3.5 on the mill last night, and weight training. I .. am... so.. tired. I'm sure it's a combo of upping miles / days worked out / plus weight training, but if I don't fall asleep at my desk today, it'll be a miracle.<br><br>
zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz<br><br>
Yoga tonight. Maybe I can stay awake through that. Well, cept through Shavasana. That may be a challenge.....

Good Morning!<br><br>
I got in my two runs yesterday. My left knee killed me during the first run, never really loosened up...oh no. Then, during the PM run it felt much better...okay. Then, I got sucked into some tennis...oh no, but not too bad. So, I have a tempo to do today, but if my knee hurts too badly, I'll just take it easy. It feels a little sore right now, but I'm still in bed so I guess that isn't the best way to test it out.<br><br>
I may need to take a few of days off, but I don't want to. I just planned out some races for the next two months and I hate to mess things up. I'll just keep playing it by ear and see where I'm at in a couple of days.<br><br>
It sounds like a few of us are dealing with some nagging pains<img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">.<br><br>
Have great runs today!

I did some butts and guts last night and now my hip hurts just. sitting. here. wahhh. wtf? It's not like I've done any crazy long runs or anything nor have I fallen down. I'm just pissed.<br><br>
On a brighter note, I've volunteered to be a water stop person for a group from my (recently joined) running club on Saturday early a.m. It's their last long run, 20 miler, before their marathon in Jacksonville. So that should be fun. Yay!<br><br>
Off to get ready for work, please pass the coff-ay!

Morning all!<br><br>
Feeling some tenderness this morning in my leg. Going to be ultra-careful and see if I can't ice it into submission before I try running again later this week. Doctor says I should be able to get back into things...WHY CAN"T I???<br><br>
Oh well, so easy non-weight bearing workout tonight.<br><br>
Good runs to all!

Hey gang.<br><br>
I didn't get to run yesterday as planned. Firehouse training night just went too long and I got home too late.<br><br>
No biggie. It just means yesterday became my day off for the week. So now it's on to six days straight.<br><br>
Heading to the gym this morning for some easy treadmill miles.

I didn't get to run yesterday either. Was going to do 2 miles after work, and then do some cardio machines (interesting article, btw, Scratch!) but I had a last minute change in plans that involved an errand and a lot of driving. I didnt' get home until 8:30 and hadn't eaten supper.<br><br>
Today is a scheduled rest day as always, but I hope to get some walking done at lunch time.

Today is day 2 of HH's Novice 1/2 Plan - 3 miles easy.....I can to that! Will be on the tmill b/c I'm wimping out of running in the cold, dark wintery night that's on tap for CNY.<br><br><b>Need thoughts / opinion re: 1st 1/2 location...</b>I have planned to use the Skunk Cabbage as my 1st official 1/2 (it's on 04-06-0<img alt="cool.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif">. Only 2 hours from my house. HOWEVER, I found a 1/2 on 04-06-08 that starts and ends 1/2 mile from my dad's place in MI. And my mom and sister live close by there, too (e.g., 20 min max). Now I have to decide which I want to do. It would be great to do my 1st 1/2 and have my family nearby. My DH would go, I think, to the Skunk Cabbage as my support team but I'd have even more support if I did the MI 1/2. Oh, the MI 1/2 is a good 7-8 hour drive from my house! What to do, what to do?

Morning, friends--<br><br>
Well, I'm paying for all that working out last night (2.5 miles on TM, arm machines, 5 min. on rowing machine, 30 min. on bike). Had a hard time dragging myself out of bed, even after 8 1/2 hours! I need to get a lot of work done today, so hopefully I can get some energy. Yoga tonight.<br><br>
((((())))) to all the injured folks. <b>BigG</b>, my left hip/glute has been bothering me for about a month for no discernable reason, though yours sounds more painful. I'm wondering if my body is shifting in composition a little. I haven't lost any weight, but I'm losing inches, especially around my waist and hips, and I'm wondering if the pain is a function of a realignment of my hips as I lose weight. I don't even know if that's physically possible, but it makes sense to my non-medical brain. Have you been trimming down in that area? Hope your hip feels better soon.<br><br>
I hope everyone gets their make-up/scheduled runs in today. Have a good one!

Morning all! I had quite the night o' activity yesterday. Elliptical warm-up, kick ass spin class and then some heart-racing volleyball. I felt great tho! Of course my hammies were both barking this morning. Bastages. Tonight is some weights and some running; will take it easy and see where it gets me.<br><br><b>((((To all those with aches & pains))))</b><br><br><b>Sara</b> - I'd do the trip to MI and run the HM there; family makes for an incredible support system.

Martian Marathon - starts and ends at UofM-Dearborn - runs along Hines Drive. <a href="http://www.martianmarathon.com/" target="_blank">http://www.martianmarathon.com/</a>. Not too far from Grand Rapids!!!<br><br>
That's what I was thinking. I do like the idea of having more family (oh, and friends) around.
