Morning, all. Back to work, for me at least. Lucky you who have the whole week off...<br><br>
Congrats to all those who got out to run yesterday. I was never able to make it out. Oh well. I had a nice 13.5 miles on Monday, so I guess that was good enough to tide me over until today. I'm planning on getting together with my neighbor for a run this evening. I reckon we'll do 6-8 miles at a rather quick clip. We'll see...<br><br>
Well folks, who else has a run to talk about?

Good morning Bob and those who follow!<br>
Just got back from a nice 7 miler. It was hilly (for this area) and a bit of a struggle for me. I think it was the week or so of awful eating. I am back on the wagon today!<br>
Have a great day!

Since I missed yesterday's run, and ate a house last night, I am out the door for about an hour....<br><br>
Oh, the folly of the holidays...

I'm gonna take a day off as well. My knee feels a slight twinge. I think I might go for a light day tomorrow and the weekend, then restart this week schedule next week.

Good morning! I got an easy run in yesterday between opening gifts and my family coming over for brunch. I also got to test out my brand new garmin ...<br><img alt="" src="http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u161/jillfo/running%20stuff/newgarmin.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
Hee hee hee. Loving it!!! How about you, RFTL? I saw you got yours. Have you used it yet?<br><br>
I have to get moving here. Mom's going to take the girls while DH and I go out for 5. I mostly have to get <i>him</i> motivated. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

morning<br><br>
I ran a couple of times when at the parents. Not too much and not too far. It was mightly cold out on Sunday - neg 15 or so with the windchill. I actually overdressed though so what can you do. I got a new pair of running gloves for xmas and plan to use them tonight. Lots of snow here in the twin cities! I think it was 7 inches since Saturday.

Add me to the list of folk who overate & under fitnessed for the last day or two. I did break a sweat doing some Wii boxing, but that was about it.<br><br>
Therefore, a short run is a must at some point today.<br><br>
Check in later.

morning! <img alt="wave.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wave.gif"><br><br>
Just back from a sleazy 4 miler along the beach again. Good stuff. Had to sweat out the tons of food and yummy wine that I consumed all day yesterday.<br><br>
All you Garmin getters -- I'm jealous. I got a lap watch (wanted it) but a Garmin would be cool, too. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Well, I got my LR in on Monday instead of Sunday, and then yesterday I went out for an easy 1 hour bike ride. Ended up riding in an incredible wind. I almost got run over by a huge tumbleweed blowing across the road. Seriously, it was up to my eye level. I had to push hard to get by in front of it, 'cause I saw it too late to stop before it. It took me 32 min on the way out and 42 min to get back. UGH! So much for an easy ride.<br><br>
The pool was nice and warm today and I had an ok time trial. I did 1000m in 21:01. I still want to get my average per 100m below 2 min, but I think I need to be more consistent at the pool for that to happen. Once a week just ain't enough.<br><br>
Add me to the list of over-eaters. Just could not stop myself even when I was full. At least I did get my workouts in or I would have gained more than I did.<br><br>
Well, I'll try to drop by later. Good runs all.

Hello everyone! I'm planning to get something in 7-8 mi neighborhood done today with little sis #2 and little bro. The weather here in STL is grand ...grand I tell ya! We didn't make it out for a run yesterday but did spend several hours in the park playing SPUD and then kickball. Damn it still hurts to try and catch a big ass pop-up when the ball is a soccer ball - bring back them red balls (ha!) from the playground. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

<b>Cus</b> Wii boxing is good cardio <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
It's gray and nasty here, and I have to put in 14. I think I might try for the TM. 14 on the TM would be a record. I'm anxious to try it out now that I've calibrated it though.

Morning Gang...hope those Christmas hangovers aren't too bad!<br><br>
4.28 this morning on some very wobbly, tired legs. Still sore from running in the deep snow here on Monday, but at least I made it out there today.<br><br><b>Jill, RFTL</b> enjoy the garmins. Can't wait to get my new iPod loaded with my music for a run tomorrow!

Hi. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Wow, I've been a slug. Well, not entirely. I've done stuff every day, just not necessarily running: 1) didn't want to piss off the tendons in my left foot any more than they already were (felt like PF but up at the base of my 3 middle toes), and 2) running in monsoons when it's 35* with thumb of God wind s.u.c.k.s.<br><br>
I've walked miles and miles and miles though. And did lots of tapes. And did get some runs in, just not as much as I would have liked to.

Hi all - waiting for this cold and associated blah feeling to get away enough so I can at least get in some decent swimming and strength workouts (hopefully by this Friday, if things go well.)<br><br>
One thing the cold did do was dampen my appetite for the past couple days, including Christmas dinner. That's fine, because I was binging a bit the few days prior.

Yea, the weather's been a bit weird lately!<br><br>
Got 5 miles in Christmas morning. I'm pretty sure that's the first time I've ever run on Christmas. Not a bad run. Mingo Junction is pretty freakin' hilly, though!<br><br>
I'll get out today for either 5 or 10 miles at lunch. Another 50-mile week this week. Just hopin' to hold it together.<br><br>
And I definitely ate way too much and hammered the sweets the last couple days.
