Good Morning 30's!<br><br>
I woke up this a.m. to the thought that in <b>Mary's</b> list of rules Rule #4 (No meeting New Friends) breaks rule #3 (No Harshing the Buzz) and thereby renders the complete list Null and Void. So there B. Neener Neener Neener.<br><br>
There was something else I was going to say but it's far too early and I haven't had a drop of coffee yet.<br><br>
I get to go to the Healthy Living Center today after work and work out!! whee!<br><br>
later people. happy trails.

Good morning, guys. Ugh. I've been feeling quite run down lately. Wow, if it's like this <b>before</b> the baby arrives, what am I gonna be like in the first few weeks after?? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br><b>Voodoo</b>, once again, sorry to hear your terrible news from yesterday.<br><br>
Well, if I've got some good personal news, it's that most of my runs lately have been relatively fast, and I have dropped my overall average pace for the year down to 8:59. That's for 1042 miles. In 2006, my average pace was 9:20 for 1202 miles. I'm pleased with that improvemnt in one year. We'll see how it stands at the end of the year.<br><br>
Umm, well enough for now...

Okay, coffee's done and I am ready to think. I've been up since 5am, couldn't sleep. Now that just sucks!<br><br>
Anyway, <b>katholeenie</b>, you are beautiful btw. Love the pic. The hat is cute. Can you shrink it in the wash at all?<br><b>Scratch,</b> hubba hubba. Um, nice pipes.<br><b>BigG,</b> I completely agree with you, Mary's rules are no longer valid.<br><b>Bob</b>, you'll be fine. Just imagine how your wife must feel. The end is the absolute worst part of pregnancy.

3.5 last night. 1/2 mi w/u @ 9:14 pace, 7:52, 7:54, 8:54 incl c/d. That is pretty speedy for me. No soreness today either.<br><br><b>Bob</b>, Yup, you will get tireder when the baby comes, but you can handle it. Something biological about parenting replaces several hours of sleep I think.<br><br><b>Jill,</b> me posting b4 there are 5 pages is probably a first too.<br><br><b>BigG,</b> have fun at the gym. I'm thinking of joining the gym in my building, but there is not a lot there (no pool, no spa, just some cardio machines and some wights) but it is convenient and they do have showers so I can get in a lunchtime run or start weight training.<br><br>
Hi to anyone else that comes in later. Work is teh suck lately and not leaving much time for dropping here to say hi to my imaginary friends.<br><br><b>MaryMcT</b>, what about meeting the new friends <b>before</b> the drinking starts? Does that break rule #4?<br><br>
Gotta run and get to swimming. Later kidz.

Holy cow. I just read this as coffee's done and I'm ready to drink... dayum. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Great News <b>BOB</b> maybe being a father will make you fast. maybe this is <b>pacer</b>'s secret.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br><i><b>King of Hawaii is Mister Soul.... He doesn't have a crown so he wears a bowl...<br></b></i><br><b>Katholeenie!!!!</b> Love it love it love it.<br><br><b>Duckie</b> has a cute kiddo<br><br><b>Kriiiiiis</b> I don't have a weird schedule.....<br><br><b>OODY</b> Oh. I thought it was a kind of a feminist-don't call me mrs- i don't have the same last name-you don't own me- sort of thing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> You mean like time wise. I'm pretty lucky in that respect. Granted its easier I'm sure because we don't have kids. We have a lot of friends and are super blessed in that area. EVERYONE likes mat. When he makes friends eventually they become my friends, and visa versa. He goes with his friends and if I can make it even better and again...visa versa. Even when I went snowboarding in WV I asked him and his response was something like, "is there going to be someone I can drink and watch movies with in the lodge or are you all going out? You mind if I stay here?" We talk about our schedules daily and weekly to coordinate things. Tonight, he was going to work a b-ball game at his school. My best friend from high school's dad is in Cleveland and wants to meet me half way (at the <b>VOO</b> park). I asked if he could get someone to cover and go with me. He wasn't sure but said he'd try. He did and its cool. If he didn't.....I know he tried. He's not as active as I am so we also talked that out. I go without him sometimes. I have been really tired this year and not wanted to go 'out' as much as usual. I go with him and we don't stay as long. Eh. We talk. We do as much of each other's stuff as we can... It works.

Hey folks!! Let me take a moment to say <b>Let's Go Phils!!!!!</b> Ok, now that is out of the way...<br><br>
Got some bike time in yesterday which was good. Also went to a nutrition clinic where I met up with the lovely <b>Solar</b>. Got lots of good info but basically it just reinforced that my diet is crap! But gave me some good things to work on and think about.<br><br><b>Voo</b> I am so very sorry to hear about your friend. I kept him in my prayers and will continue to pray for his loved ones. But so glad you got to see him and talk to him, it is a hrad thing to do that a lot of people would have avoided.<br><br><b>Katholeenie</b> I absolutely love that picture, the hat is adorable. You are amazingly talented!!<br><br><b>KJ</b> glad you checked in with us! Did ya get some pool time yesterday?!<br><br>
Sending good vibes to anyone with an injury and hugs to everyone in need of one!<br><br>
Will check back later for a QOD!!!

It's definately tough work for those first few weeks/months... but after a while just when you thought you'd go insane, the baby will sleep thru the night (that's a relative term)... I remember our first night of uninterrupted sleep, he slept from around 11PM until around 4:30AM - That was a real treat! As the weeks past, he made it from 10PM - 5AM, and the first time he slept until 6AM, DW woke up freaking out, thinking something had to be wrong. Nope, just a tired baby <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
You'll adjust fine. If I adjusted anyone can <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> You might find that your running schedule becomes very erratic... I ran at all hours back then. I even ran a 5k on almost 0 sleep just a few days after we got home from the hospital, and at the time it was a PR. There is just something about running on pure adrenaline <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> it must be what the Ultra guys/gals feel like <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Ugh. Stiff neck, stiff back, and I tossed and turned last night. 6am came much too early this morning and it was dark when I woke up. Ugh.<br><br>
Tap tonight. I'd thought about hitting the gym beforehand, but DH has the car today and I won't be able to get there before class. I'm not even sure I'm gonna get to class on time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"> I really need to sign up for Zipcar.<br><br>
I am starving. I need to go forage. I hate foraging at work...there's nothing good. We're sorely lacking in nuts and berries.<br><br><b>Mandy,</b> your Mat is a lucky man, and you are a lucky woman. (((Mandy))) just cuz. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Anyone watching <b>Reaper</b>? Funny show...I'm enjoying it.<br><br>
I have <b>a real running/training q</b>: I am running the half at Philly. Running is a term used loosely. Due to circumstances, I've not been running much. I don't mind walking some, but I need to get training again, and it's gonna have to start next week. I've decided trying to train with the play is just unrealistic and this week is nearly over. And the play closes this weekend. So, <b>Pacer, Baggs, Trevor, anyone else</b>, can you help me figure out a way to get to a point of being able to run at least 8 miles before Philly when I can run about 2-3 now? I'm realistic in that I'm not going to run all of Philly. I also know that running more than 3-4 times a week is out. I need recovery time. So, suggestions??? I know I suck...but I need help.<br><br>
Thanks!<br><br>
Moe

Good Morning<br><b>{{{Voo}}}</b> cancer sucks. My son is named after someone who died of lukemia at the age of 18. I never knew him, he was a cousin of my husbands. Not sure why I just typed that.....<br><br><b>Katholeenie</b> great smile. I am teaching myself to knit. The hat is great! You are very talented<br><br><b>Bob</b> the first few weeks, months after the baby is born will go by in a blurr. Mostly because you are too damn tired to function. It will get better. Just when you relax they will turn 2.... That is a story for another day. How is Maggie feeling?

Okay, go Phillies!<br><br>
Maybe or maybe not interesting, I have no red clothing items to wear. Maybe I should have worn the Phillies baseball cap.<br><br>
It was weird taking the photos last evening. I still think of myself as being very very skinny, because that's the way I always was when growing up, the small skinny kid. I'm still skinny but not as skinny now. It's weird seeing the latissimus dorsi muscles sticking out from the sides some now.<br><br>
Anyhow, took 2 days off from running, going to run after work this afternoon. I'll try not to think too much about how the Phillies will be playing while I'm running.

Work is still crazy busy and seems like by the time I get home and sit down to post on<br>
here I fall asleep!!!<br><br>
Hope that everyone is doiing well, is on the mend, has turned the corner, etc.<br><br><b>AUntie Moe</b>....meant to comment before - good for you on taking tap! I always wanted to take ballet (even as an adult) and have never done it. Maybe I'll look in to an adult class.

Good morning.<br>
Big storm blew through last night... I know this because we sleep with the windows open and KP had to close the house up at <i>2:30am!</i> So, I woke up with a headache and NO desire to go to work.<br><br><b>Katholeenie</b> - You are my hero! So talented. I have taught myself to knit, but I can only do a simple roll brim hat.

G'mornin'. Still dark here. I am not awake.<br><br>
I'm shuffling my schedule around this week to accommodate the Dbacks-Cubs game tonight and my race this weekend. I'm doing an abbreviated LR w/some tempo this morning, then taking the day off from school so I can get a bunch of errands done, and hopefully grab a nap so I can drive safely back from Phoenix tonight after 10. Yeah, I'm old.<br><br><b>Moe</b>, I caught Reaper last week. I definitely enjoyed it. Much funnier than I expected.<br><br>
I know there was more, but I'm not even partly coherent yet. Good days to runs to all.

If I were only trying to get to a long run of 8 miles with 3 days of running, I might do the following.<br><br>
Week 1 - 2,2,4<br>
Week 2 - 2,3,5<br>
Week 3 - 3,3,4<br>
Week 4 - 3,3,6<br>
Week 5 - 3,4,8<br>
Week 6 - 4,4,6<br>
Week 7 - 2,2, Half-Marathon<br><br>
Believe me, my training for the Philly full is going to be pretty ugly at this point...
