To paraphrase an old poster: Today is the first day of the rest of your training. It doesn’t matter where you started or how far you’ve come. Today is the day. Your training didn’t start 6 weeks ago. Your training started the last time you hit the road. John “the Penguin” Bingham Life is not tried, it is merely survived if you're standing outside the fire
Planned on getting up early and doing it again this morning but it was hotter earlier and the humidity was 100% Just picking a pound of cherry tomatoes sucked the enegry right out of me. Been drinking so much water I slosh. But a diabetic that is dried out has higher BG and that ain't good!!! I run to LOWER my BG not send it through the roof!! So I guess today is a cross training day on hte Nordic Trac with the air on full blast!!
AC sounds like a good plan. I ran 10 miles the other day on the treadmill (which I really try to avoid) because I didn't get up early enough to stay out of the sun.
A pound of cherry tomatoes? Are you a gardener? I don't have a yard but I'm growing cherry tomatoes, peppers, basil, and some other herbs on my rooftop. Coming a long pretty well, though it's taking a lot of watering.
.... Running message boards are filled with the psychobabble of runners with 2 weeks more experience than other runners doling out advice on the latest and greatest "methods" of running; chi running, the pose method, yada, yada. There is an entire industry churning out books, articles, DVDs, giving seminars and charging money for online advice to capitalize on people's insecurity and tendency to over think this most basic of activities. Ignore it all. You know how to run--this is absolutely the simplest sport on earth. The most important thing is to be able to manage the little aches, pains, bad days and setbacks that you will inevitably encounter as you are getting started and to get past those so that running can become a habit--something you do without even thinking about it and something you can't live without.
Just tomatoes this year oh and some potatos. Most years green beans, cukes several mellons and corn. I have 10 acres, about half in woods so the rest I try and grow things. Had a tree trimmer dump 14 loads of shredded trees to compost down. Should see the steam come off that pile in winter. Bet it is a 160 dgrees in the center. When it cools the worms take over which are great for bass fishing!! I also have a 0.6 acre farm pond, but I need to hire some one to dig it out as with all ponds they slowly fill in and this one is now only about 5 feet deep
