Run to live; live to run

    12.3. Pretty good run. Cooler than it has been so long sleeve tech needed today.

    Just B.S.


      Hi Fridailies. I am not sure when I posted last. Cannot even begin to tell you how busy this week has been.

       

      My husband says taking care of an elderly person is like having a baby in the house without the toys

      and cute clothes.LOL Plus lots more phone calls and  paperwork than one would have with a baby.

       

      Brief synopsis of the workouts which I have been squeezing in at odd times of the day when I have time

       

      Sunday - 19 miles in 3:10 - 1,900 feet of gain, great run, then drove an hour for b'day party for FIL

      Sunday - off - cooked family dinner for Easter

      Monday - swim in the early a.m. , 7 mile run in the pm

      Tuesday - swim in the early a.m., 5 mile run directly after swim , Carrie Underwood concert @ 7:30

      Wed - off - getting sick or possibly just exhaustion so taking a rest to head it off

      Thursday - 6 miles, felt awful but got it done

      Today - run of undetermined distance, whatever the body can stand with this fatigue 

       

      Tuesday night my wonderful hubby stayed with Auntie so that i could have a much needed night out of dinner

       and the Carrie Underwood concert with my girlfriends. We have had these tickets since November and

      the concert sold out then in less than 2 hours. No way was I missing this. We saw her when she was

      here in 2008 and loved her show. I  know i look like hell. I need sleep.

       

       

      See you again sometime!!

        I am glad to see you, Beth.  Stay strong, superwoman!  I am glad you were able to enjoy a night out.

          marathon pr - 3:16

            Good morning!

              Wow, a late check in for me today and with 3 pages already there's no chance for personals right now. I have 8 miles planned for this evening .. probably just a nice easy pace - though that's been known to change. Have a good day all!

              Train smart ... race smarter.

              Barking Mad To Run

                Was going to do hills yesterday, but forgot my knee brace, so ended up going home to get it, then just went to run in the park close to my house.  Ended up being a pleasant little outing of 3.1 miles around the park trails in the very nice 75 degree sunshine.  Also saw several of my doggie pals and gave them treats.   Today is a rest day as I have a 5K event on both Saturday and Sunday.

                 

                Good luck with the 5 after work, Gustav!

                 

                Congrats on the 6, flarunner.  What's a progression run?  Wow, terminology sure has changed since I was actually 'seriously' training and racing, lol.  Guess I'm OLD now... Joking

                 

                Happy rest day, Jeep!

                 

                Good luck with the 10K tomorrow, April!  Enjoy your nicer weather.

                 

                Way to go on 8.2, Dave.

                 

                Wow, Phil, you're up to 30 miles already?  That is some darn rehab progress!

                 

                Good luck with whatever activity you choose, Oski!  Coifed and beautiful?  You look just fine to me in your avatar.  Wink

                 

                Happy rest day, lilac, hope the knee quits being cranky!

                 

                Kristin, what races are you doing again, this weekend?  Wishing you all the luck and that the ITB behaves itself!

                Barking Mad To Run

                  So you are going to taper right up to Boston, Fuzzy?  Good luck with taper madness!

                   

                  Glad the shoes are working for you, LRB.  And Go Tigers!  I can't stand the Yankees. Egotistical buncha... Wink

                   

                  Man, that stinks SIAR, sorry to hear you were ill.  Hope you are recovering well.

                   

                  lol, MTB.  Maybe he's letting it grow a bit to get the 'rugged' look.  Joking

                   

                  Hope your long run went well for you, outoftheblue.

                   

                  Good luck with your miles, Zelanie, hope the hip continues to behave!  If not...I'll spank it for you!  Wink

                   

                  Damaris, sorry to hear you are coughing, etc. (saw that on the Penguin thread)   A friend/co-worker of mine is going to visit Puerto Rico in a couple of months.  Any suggestions/recommendations on things to see, etc?

                  Barking Mad To Run

                    My day at work started by realizing, too late, that I was in a stall with no toilet paper.  

                    It can only go up from there.

                     

                    Well, then, you just have to bite the bullet and flush...and then flush again...and then dip-and-flush, dip-and-flush, dip-and-flush....ewwwwww....  Joking

                    Barking Mad To Run

                      You are the queen of double-digit running, Marjorie!  Congrats on your miles.

                       

                      Beth if that is your  'look like hell' look, then I definitely want to see you when you look great, cuz that must be absolutely fantastic! Big grin  Nice of your DH to do that for you!  Glad you can still get your miles and workouts in, with all you have going on.  Hope it is helping you deal with the stress you must be under at times.

                       

                      Congrats on your miles, Ric!

                       

                      Good luck with the 8, Bruce!

                       

                      Have a great weekend, B-Plus!

                       

                      I am hoping to leave work a bit early today.  I have been coming in at around 5:30 - 6 a.m. every morning.  My co-worker - the only other researcher besides me - had a small stroke on Monday.  Luckily she got to the hospital fast and so is doing well now, but is going to be hospitalized for a while for testing, etc.   I wish her all the best, she really is a great person.   Of course, the work goes on, so I am doing some of her projects, as well as mine.  Makes for a long day sometimes!

                      I race in SparkleSkirts

                        scotty I have a 5K in Brooklyn Bridge Park and a 4M for Colon Cancer awareness in Central Park. I hope to race the 5K and have fun with the 4M, but I may end up reversing that depending on what pace I can maintain for the first mile of the 5K. Flying by the seat of my pants, making decisions as I go!

                        PRs:   5K- 28:16 (5/5/13)      10K- 1:00:13 (10/27/13)    4M- 41:43 (9/7/13)   15K- 1:34:25  (8/17/13)    10M- 1:56:30 (4/6/14)     HM- 2:20:16 (4/13/14)

                          aw thanks Scotty.  I try really hard on the double digits.  I like them.

                              Maybe, but I just had a delicious Fiber One bar, so there.

                              Actually I am hooked on those things, but try to avoid eating them too close before a run, in case it achieves its intended effect.

                                Lots of recommendations.  Is there a way for her to email me (via FB maybe)?  I need to see what her plans are and then I can give her some ideas.

                                So you are going to taper right up to Boston, Fuzzy?  Good luck with taper madness!
