Barking Mad To Run

    Posted by lily yesterday:  Scotty, I never would have thought you had such a varied landscape around San Antonio. Beautiful parks! San Antonio is now on my list of places to retire to if I can ever escape here mortgage free.

     

    Yep, all things considered, it is a pretty nice city, even though the summer heat can be brutal.  Low cost of living, pretty nice weather most of the year round...and we even have a nudist colony!

        Haha!  I see how it is, if the climate and geography don't tempt us, you'll try to tempt us with nudity!

        Running- the real sport.  The others just play with their balls.

          Z - have fun running with the track group.

           

          Mitch - enjoy your 5 miles.  I hope the FIL's surgery goes well.

           

          Bin - good job on the 5.

           

          Awood - I hope your hotel has a TM for you to do your miles.

           

          Kristin - I'm glad you enjoyed your spin class.  After so long not being able to exercise, be careful not to overdo now.

           

          Cherie - good job getting yourself out the door and completing the 8 1/2.

           

          Damaris - I hope your cough eases up so you can get some miles in tonight.

           

          Obiebyke - hurray for the clearance to run.  Have fun.

           

          SO42 - can you at least change directions on the track, or did you have to do all your laps in the same direction?  That could cause hip problems.

           

          OFS - a good soccer game will give you lots of fast running.  Good job.

           

          HM - I'm glad the scan was clear.  I hope the knee continues to improve.

           

          Scotty - enjoy your run through the park.  San Antonio does have some lovely places to run.

           

          AFM:  I got out and ran 6 on a hilly route.  I didn't intend to go that far, but it turned out to be farther than I thought.  Oh well.

            Ginny- Nice run.

             

            The treadmill here is not doing well.  I managed to get 4 miles on it.  Not too bad for being on the road.

            Sloooow.

              Hello all.

               

              Week 1, Day 1 of C25K just kicked my butt. Mainly because my exercise itchies are back because of the break. That should go in a week or so though. 2.1 miles done in 35 minutes, such a neeeeeewb!

                Ginny: They alternate the direction of the track on different days. I don't run on it very often, 2 or 3 times a month maybe. Usually at the gym I'll just use the TM. Much less boring than the indoor track since on the TM I can at least watch TV

                  Doc just called, and my CT scan was just fine!!

                   

                  Woohoo!

                   

                  I had a nice 7.

                      Daisy just collapsed and I had to hospitalize her.  They tentatively believe it was a seizure but she is the one sick with the liver disease so they won't know until more tests.
