Tuesday Penguins , carpe diem - seize the day! (Read 217 times)

Fear is a Liar

    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!)

    Fear is a Liar

      Good morning Penguins!

       

      Scotty - I do full body workouts every other day but it's with light weights. I'm trying to get buff enough to get my pic in the Sexiest Male Celebrity thread!

       

      Yesterday was full body workout at the gym. Then at home I did core exercises, resistance exercises, and stretching .My wife and I "Multi-task" while we sing - she sings and I'll do planks, I sing and she'll do aerobics! Today if I get home early enough I hope to get out on my bike, it has been beautiful out.

       

      Enjoy today!

        The mircle isn't that I finished. The mircle is that I had the courage to start.

          Hey all. I felt like I was ran over my a freight train when I got home. I was so tired, my head hurt and I just felt worn down, probably due to the overnight karaoke saturday and the terrible eating, lol. Anyways, I got home cleaned up the house from the Christmas/Thanksgiving party we had with my wifes family, ate dinner with the wife after she got home and I was in bed and asleep by 7pm and it felt amazing! So... got to get my workout and run in today.

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

            SRD for me.  I get back on the early morning schedule tomorrow.

            Having fun running.  No pace goals, no race goals, no schedule, just doing it.

              Good morning Penguins!

               

              Well it is going to have to be an RD for me. I am working late tonight (have a late photo shoot) and I have to finish vacuum sealing our clothes tonight. Movers are coming to pack our things on Thursday, so I want to make sure our stuff is separated from the stuff we are taking on the plane and the stuff that is getting shipped. Why does it feel like there isn't much time left?!

               

              I hope everyone is doing well. I'll catch you taters later!

                Good Morning Penguins !!!   Might postpone RD again if it's still nice after work.  Need to get over to the health club to do some resistance work.

                 

                Have a great day !!!!

                 

                ps:  Congrats on race Traci. !,,,

                  Good morning everyone.

                   

                     gustav -- I agree, we need pictures when you are buff!

                   

                     Brenda -- Try to enjoy the 5.  Sounds like too many circles to me, and I'd get bored.

                   

                     JB -- you must have needed the rest, if you fell asleep that early.

                   

                    Robert & TSTS -- rest well

                   

                     Scotty -- yesterday you asked what was my "unseasonably warm".  It got up to 65º yestereday, the normal high is 49º. 

                   

                  I'm also on a SRD.  I'm going for a massage after work.  I don't do this often (ok, hardly ever -- this will be my third massage ever), but I found a Groupon for a $35 hour-long massage at a place not far from home.  I bought the Groupon in August -- it's about time I use it.

                    8 miles done this morning.  I'm now tied for my longest streak at 14 days and feeling great!

                     

                    Hope everyone has a great day!

                      Morning All!

                       

                      Gustav, wow can you do some of those workouts for me?

                       

                      Brenda, good luck with the 5 hopefully that indoor track its 2.5 miles long Smile.

                       

                      JB wow that sounds sooo nice, my DW is a night person, but I need to get up early to run.. doesn't mix too well...

                       

                      Robert and Jerry, enjoy the RD.

                       

                      Rach, moving is so stressfull but having movers helps.  And since I fail at reading all the penguin threads where are you moving from and too?

                       

                      Margo, enjoy the massage!  Your a chemist you earned it Smile (Its that whole P-Chem thing, they wouldn't understand, hell I don't even understand Smile)

                       

                      Dave, you sir are an Animal!

                       

                      AFM, 5.2 done this morning, missed the rain by an hour it looks like (nerts, I need the points for the winter running challenge).  Life has been incredibly busy but at least I learned how to change an alternator in a 2001 Saturn SL.  Staying current with my streak so that is good, too bad the majority of my runnes have been 1.3 Sad.

                       

                      Have a Happy Tuesday All!

                      Tick: I'm sure millions of viewers out there are just wondering what it's like to wear the tights of justice. Well, it's tingly and it's uncomfortable, but it gets the job done and, oh, the job of it.

                        Morning all!! 3 treadmill miles this morning for me. Work has been insane lately, a typical day has about 40 patients between our 2 treatment machines and we have 52 right now!! I need running shoes for work too! But at least there is no down time to eat all the junk food that seems too readily available these days!!

                        Completed my first half marathon 2:09:04!!!

                        I race in SparkleSkirts

                          I've had a lot of URDs lately for various reasons and I don't like it Sad. I've been so good with my training and now my race is less than 2 weeks away, I can't afford this. But this morning my body didnt guve me a choice....GI issues forced me to stay in my apartment instead of heading out for my run Sad. I posted this at 10pm in the Monday penguin thread but assumibg many people dont go back and read it that late I'll tell you guys again. Registration opened yeaterday for two races I KNOW I want to do next year and even though both are more than 6 months away I signed up! 10 miler in June and half in October!

                          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)

                          Dad on the run.

                            Good morning everyone.

                             

                               gustav -- I agree, we need pictures when you are buff!

                             

                               Brenda -- Try to enjoy the 5.  Sounds like too many circles to me, and I'd get bored.

                              Robert & TSTS -- rest well

                             

                               Scotty -- yesterday you asked what was my "unseasonably warm".  It got up to 65º yestereday, the normal high is 49º.

                            The thing is if I fall asleep at 7pm that gives me exactly 8 hours of sleep before I have to get up for work which is nice compared to the 4 or 5 I typically get.

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