Weekly Check in 4-10 Jan 2010 - starting the year strong! (Read 568 times)

    Hi everyone,

     

    1st week of the new year, let's make it a good one!

     

    It's already Monday for me and I did 50 min of UB (chest/shoulders/triceps) and 15 min of abs. I think my shoulders will be really sore tomorrow

     

    So who here doesn't go back to work today?

     

    Crabby: we usually run together

    Happy Feat: don't like Winter today, it's very icey on the roads and bike paths. Looks like I'll have to take the bus to work, no fun.

     

    Have a great Monday and a most excellent workout.

     

    ETA: been diagnosed with bronchitis today. My lungs didn't feel right since Sat. evening. Breathing shallow was not a problem, but deep breaths hurt and would make me cough. Don't feel sick though. Did fine during my long run yesterday and my workout this morning, so I'm not sure what to do now. Doc said I should do whatever I felt up to. Listen to my body. Hmmm, don't know if I can hear it

      I do not belong in that category. I am starting the year weak and slow and will have to try to catch up with the bunny later. Sigh.

      Unless elliptical "miles" count. 

      Nah.

      I'm on the right


         ETA: been diagnosed with bronchitis today. My lungs didn't feel right since Sat. evening. Breathing shallow was not a problem, but deep breaths hurt and would make me cough. Don't feel sick though. Did fine during my long run yesterday and my workout this morning, so I'm not sure what to do now. Doc said I should do whatever I felt up to. Listen to my body. Hmmm, don't know if I can hear it

         

         

         

        Ugh, sorry about the bronchitis.  If you can't hear your body, you must be fine Smile.  Hope you feel better!  Are you coughing a lot during your workouts?

         

        I'm trying to sprint out ahead of the bunny.  Maybe then I can just keep that furry nuisance in my rear view mirror.  I'm getting used to running in cold (for Atlanta) weather.  20F for my last 2 runs - at least the only ice is on the lake.  I had to go and buy cold weather gear so I could run though! 

        I'm Eric, the guy who runs to keep his sanity.

          Nope, no coughing during workouts or running. Unless I take a deep breath. I think I'll just hop on the TM tomorrow for an easy run and see how it feels. I could always hop off again and have coffee and post stupid things on all threads cause I'm bored Or would that make me a troll?

            Dutchie: Bronchitis! WTF? Hope you recover from that quickly. The right antibiotics should take care of that. I've only had it once a number of years ago and it didn't stop me running. The medicine made me feel worse than the illness.

            I know that bus routine. I did that last year for a couple weeks when we had snow. It gets old, but it's a relief not to have to sweat the drive. I had a near-miss going uphill with an SUV doing a 360 right at me a couple years ago, and sometimes I still get a bit nervous driving in winter at that location.

            PerfessorRuss: What are the details on your leg pains? Seems like a lot of folks are starting out the year with hamstring problems. Is that it?  (I apologize if you've explained the problem in a prior post, but I didn't see it.)

             

            Today will be my "skip running/work out with weights" day.

            Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

              Unless elliptical "miles" count. 

              Nah.

               

              I've struggled with that question before myself.  I have been counting elliptical as running miles, but not walking or stairclimber.  I guess it's like being a meatasaurus...it's a personal choice.

                  Hi everyone!

                   

                  Joined last year but didn't post much.  I'll try to do better this year. 

                   

                  Weather has been wicked but I've been going out nonetheless. I have started listening to podcasts to keep me focused on them since I am not training for anything yet.

                   

                  This week I restart my yoga class and I am looking forward to that even though they can be painful! 

                   

                  Have a good week, all!

                    Skipped my interval run this morning. Let the body rest some to speed up recovery.

                     

                    Happy Feat: no antibiotics, because (1) doctors here are not quick to hand out medication (go to bed and stay there till you feel better) and (2) this doctor, who's not my regular gp, said that bronchitis is caused by a virus and antibiotics don't work on viruses. Pneumonia otoh is caused by bacteria and for that you do get anti-biotics.

                    rururunner: welcome. How did you do last year? Stayed near the bunny?

                     

                    We've had more snow overnight. What's happening to our weather???

                        I know...I live in Atlanta and it is NEVER cold here.  Except for the last 4 days.  All of my runs have been in 20F or lower weather, which may sound tropical to most of you but is FREEZING here.    My parents are visiting next week and are glad to come for the 'warm' weather, as they're lucky if the temperature gets up to 10F for the days high lately.

                           Be sure to check your calf for "knots" and get those worked out. In my experience, AT develops when knots there make the calf muscle less stretchy and thus pull the AT tight, causing the inflammation. Of course, icing both areas will help too.

                          Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

                            Will do, thanks.


                            Trey, I will need a Goofy RR ASAP, to decide if I want to do it next year.

                              The Pink Beast passed me sometime today. Guess I'll just have to run tomorrow to not let it get ahead too far.

                               

                              Trey: I guess I'll have to third the slow start of the year.

                                Will do. I'm not sure if Disney will have the expanded field for Goofy next year so your sign up timing might have to be Johnny-on-the-spot. Even with an expanded field, Goofy sold out in August, I think. 

                                I'm also carrying a point and shoot with me so photos to come as well.
