Barking Mad To Run

    The "Penguin" daily threads were originally conceived to emphasize that all members of the community have a place on the boards. Encouragement, motivation, a little love nip (you will love one, give it a try!) or even a little kick in the pants when needed -- it can happen here. Basically, we celebrate just getting out there and moving our tails! What is "slow"? "Slow" is a perception but one of the common benchmarks is the 10:00/mi pace; but there's no firm line. In fact, there are many of us that have slipped past this, and just hope that no one notices and revokes their "igloo privileges." It can be confusing for the forum newbies, but we're not one of the teams in any of the fine games. It's a totally open group, so stop lurking, post an introduction of yourself dive in and join the fun! No application necessary! There might even be a lovely picture for Scotty (we love pics!)The "Penguin" daily threads were originally conceived to emphasize that all members of the community have a place on the boards.

    Barking Mad To Run

      Talaria n. winged shoes, such as worn by Hermes...

       

       

       

      If you have a run planned today, hope you all feel like you are in talaria when you are out there and everything goes just wonderfully for you!  If you are not running today, whatever you do have planned, hope it all goes smoothly and as quickly as if you were wearing talaria.

       

      AFM:  Plan on doing 3 - 4 miles after work on the trails of a local park.   For my outing the San Antonio weather will be sunny, 70 degrees, humidity 36%,  and an agreeable dew-point too.  Nice!

        Good morning Scott and Pengs.  Enjoy your run Scott. and the warm weather.  We got a little snow last night.

         

        Finally got the referral for the Orthopedic Surgeon.  Need to set up the appointment. Hope it won't take too long.

         

        Have a great day.

          Sorry you even have to deal with that at all!

           

          Glad you were not on the train yesterday!  Saw a story about a train derailing in Chicago and actually running off the track, onto the platform, and part way up an escalator, dang!

            Bad Ass

              Morning!  7 miles and weights (if I have time).  TM or outside depending on the flooding (it's been raining badly since last night).

               

              Jerry, sorry you're still dealing with this.  Hope it's nothing major.  FYI, we'll be there on June 7 for that race I told you.

                Wish I could run it, but that is doubtful. I'll have to talk DW into it.

                Dad on the run.

                  Hey all. I thought 3 days of rest would do me good, but I think it did more harm lol. Yesterday's 7 miler sucked monkey nuts. I felt so slow and sluggish and my legs were just stiff. Slogged it out at 10:30m/m.

                   

                  Will plan for 4 tonight, then I will get busy putting together some of our baby stuff Smile Our baby bed should come in today so we can get started decorating the kidos room.

                   

                  EK has been excited so far but I'm sure soon as baby gets here and she realizes she has to share mommy/daddy time she isn't going to be nearly as happy.

                  My parents said I could be anything when I grew up, so I decided to be Awesome!

                    Jerry, get well soon. Hope it's nothing major and time will heal it.

                     

                    Jimmy, exciting times. Congrats again.

                     

                    4M early in the morning. Home alone with 2 kids today and somewhat challenging. I managed. Hee

                    Barking Mad To Run

                      Gee, Jimmy...10:30 pace is speedwork for some of us.  OK...maybe just me...   Sorry about your bad run, but no worries, it happens on occasion to everyone.  You'll be back to your strong speedy self in no time.  Probably with you run today!  Scottydog Has Spoken!  So It Is Said, So It Shall Be.    Good luck with the room!

                       

                      Yeah, Damaris, I saw on the Weather Channel all that rain you were getting there.  Funny...last night on our local news channel, our Weather Guy had been on vacation all last week in Florida.  He commented that normally by this time of year San Antonio has had 5.5 inches of rain (we've had 1.5 inches for the year so far,  so are in major water restrictions around here) and when he was in Florida, they had 5 inches of rain in just a FEW days!  Dang.   Stay safe!

                       

                      Congrats on overcoming the challenge, Bin, and getting your miles in!

                        And don't get on train and sleep with the operator either, that could end up badly...in more ways than one!

                              Yesterday I ran 7 miles with 12x400. My intervals were anywhere from 6:55 to 7:25. That was a hard workout so today I am resting because I have a tempo run tomorrow.

                               

                              Awood: That's funny how you can tell you have a race coming up because you get sick. DW is very good at predicting rain. She uses a similar technique; when she sees that I have washed the cars, she predicts rain (and she is usually right).
