Just B.S.


    Happy Birthday Lilac!!!

     

    1,500 done in the pool, non-stop in 40 minutes. I'm getting faster!! That's just short of a mile folks.

    I am starting to think my goal of a 1/2 Iron for next summer is totally doable

     

    A nice easy 4 miles later today.

     

    I haven't had a non exercise day in 7 days and since I am 4 days out from a marathon I am taking

    tomorrow off. NO swimming, NO running, No cycling. I am I am I am, yes I am!!Smile

     

    Hope everyone has a great day!

          Happy Birthday LJ! Welcome to the cool people age group! Smile

           

          5 miles at a 9:00mm today. Had a couple sprinkles by the end of my run and when I left for work it was raining. It was nice to miss that. Have a great day everyone!

            Sarah, hope you are doing well and healing well!  I am going to pick an upcoming fun-run-race of mine and dedicate it to you while you are on the bench!  I have to decide which one, gotta have one that 'suits' you.  I'll let you know.

             

            Scotty - You are so sweet!!   Whatever race you decide, I'm sure I'll love it!!   Thanks!!

            But The Smile That I Sent Out Returned With You.

                Morning!  I have been busy walking lately, as usual.  Yesterday I wanted something different, so I hauled my butt up one of my favorite trails.  The first 2 miles average an 8% grade, so enough to get my heart going a little bit.  Of course, everyone else who was out was a runner. Sad

                 

                Today I am starting cookie baking for the local ultra that's this weekend.  They will be doing the trail I did and many, many others.  Today I am making oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.  Tomorrow it will be peanut butter cookies with hershey's kisses on top.  Both of those seemed like they would taste good at an aid station.

                        Hoping to catch up on all the RR's and stuff later tonight.

                                Good morning!

                                 

                                I got in 11 miles yesterday on the treadmill at 10:30 pace before my Mom got into town.  Today, my Mom, DH and I are heading out to play a round of golf and plant some corn and beans in the garden.

                                 

                                Happy Birthday Lilac!
