Barking Mad To Run

    They do let you run on the flight deck   My luck, Dave, I'd be running on the flight deck and a plane would hit me, lol.  Or I'd run into a plane.  I"m surprised you can run on a flight deck, seems like it would be awfully windy on an aircraft carrier.

     

    Congrats, Tomas, looking forward to your report and the photos!  As for the game....stupid Texans!  Angry  Thought they had a shot there for a bit, they started playing kind of decently but it was too late in the game.

     

    SO sorry about the knee, Kristin, that sucks!  Maybe the only way to fix it good is to be like me...have 4 surgeries on the knee and get a big ole screw put into it.  Wink  Seriously, hope you don't ever have to do that!

     

    Had a flat tyre day.  TYRE?  Isn't that a city in the Middle East, Bin?  Didn't the Crusaders go there long ago?  Wink   Nice running over the weekend.

     

    Enjoy your family time tonite, Zelanie. Good luck with those reading tests.

     

    and students back on campus.  Yeah, HsM, us too.  I was going to the university gym today after work, but a bud of mine who works at the gym called me and said give it a few days, all the New Year's "resolutions" students are packing the place and there are lines to wait to use the equipment.    That will die down after about a week or so, if it's like last year, and then it will the 'regulars' again.  Meanwhile, thankfully, I have 4 military base gyms I can use.

     

    How did the PT go, Lauren?

     

    Happy running this afternoon, Jen16!  You can still run with DD1 you know....you both start out, she goes ahead and does and out...and then a back to where you are...then she just runs with you at your pace for your route as her 'cool-down' run, since she is much faster than you.  That way, you can still keep company with her for a while.

     

    Good luck with the 5 tonite, Nightcrawler.  Sometimes it's nice to run when everyone else is asleep.  You know how hot our Texas summer days can be so sometimes I get up at 4 a.m. to get my run in for the day.  It is nice and peaceful and the whole world seems quiet. Makes me feel like I'm king of the whole domain around me, lol.

      You are on a roll Scotty.  I was expecting that laughing his ass off smiley when I said I was about to take an SRD.

        How did the PT go, Lauren?

         

        Quite well Smile I get to try a test run when I go in on Thursday, so I'm pretty happy about that! Keeping up with my myriad of hip, foot, shin, calf exercises until then.

          Jerry, you asked in my race report about Alamo Beer.

           

          It is QUITE good.  They had a choice of a darker  and a "light blonde"    I chose the light blonde, so I wouldn't have to have a lengthy conversation with it....and it really was blonde...you could look through one side of it and see clear out the other side... Wink

           

          I think the lighter one is called 'golden ale.'  It was quite good!

            I called the orthopedic doctor that the asshat begrudgingly referred me to. The scheduling  secretary was out, so she is supposed to calk me tomorrow. Hopefully there is an available appointment soon!

              Good!  If there is something seriously wrong, you deserve a doctor that cares enough to find out what it is.  If there's nothing seriously wrong (as in some rest and rehab can fix it), then they shouldn't be discouraging you from running in the future.  That's just my opinion.  My doctor just says, "You're doing what?  Here are some precautionary things that I'd like you to do.".  That doesn't just apply to running.

               

              He knows my entire family history, and my medical history and works with what I've been given...LOL  My favorite was when he had me try to manipulate my cholesterol through diet and exercise.  My numbers weren't bad, but I have a family member who struggles even when given medication.  He wanted to make sure that mine wasn't going to get out of control like that some day.  We found out that mine responds just as you would expect.  Now we know.

              Sloooow.

                Afternoon, everyone Smile

                 

                Kristen- I hope you get an appointment sorted out soon Sad

                 

                Philliefan- enjoy your rest day. Mini kitchen makeover sounds like fun!

                 

                Scotty- glad you caught sight of that bugger before he tried to mow you down!

                 

                Awood- congrats on the weightloss so far, I bet the extra weight being gone will make a big difference for you in your race.

                 

                Zelanie- best of luck with all the kids testing, sounds like a right pain.

                 

                Docket- well, I'm glad you are taking a rest day. I read your RR, sounded like a great experience. I got a little nervous reading that you had left your inhaler, but you definitely aced it!

                 

                 

                I'm going to aim for 2/3 today. Last week I ran next to nothing due to being so sick. I'm feeling a bit better, still an ache in my head but hopefully this is the last of it. I have to be up at silly o-clock tomorrow to go to the hospital, getting the results of the CT scan I had a couple of months a go. Stomach is in knots, should be finding out if I need more surgery and what the next step is!

                  My back is better, but not yet healed, so I did a 4 mile progressive on the TM that left me feeling tired but happy.  Nice thing about not having a training plan right now - I can run by how I feel, as long as I don't get too ambitious.

                    CoralieT - I hope everything is good.  I'm glad your feeling better.

                     

                    Lauren - Lets hope all of those exercises pay off!!!  I'll keep my fingers crossed.

                     

                    Ginny - Gotta love that tired, but happy feeling.  I know that not having a plan is fun for a lot of people.  I stress out when I don't have a plan.  That's odd too, because when I am on a trip or vacation I don't want any kind of structure.  I feel like committing to be at a certain place at a certain time can lead to me missing out on something better.  I'm a weirdo.

                      3 miles done @ 10:17 pace. On the treadmill as it's just me and the kids, but I opened the window in front of it and gave my 4 year old a big blanket, 35F outside.

                       

                      Silly question, but my usual (treadmill) pace is 11:20-11:50. Would it be bad to bump my 3 mile runs to my pace today so I can get them done quicker? The run today felt pretty good, I didn't feel like I was overdoing it. I've been aiming to do two 3 mile runs, and two 2 mile runs a week.

                            I'll ask for it at my  LLS.  The Blonde sounds like a good choice.   Smile

                             

                            3 mile "tempo" run today  on the nice warm track. Actually wasn't that bad outside, but we are very spoiled and very entitled.
