How Did You Sleep Last Night, MONDAILIES? (Read 60 times)


Miles to go

    Morning, dailies!  Slept pretty well here, but should have gone to bed earlier.  Tonight I have 7 planned, with 3-4 at tempo.

    Barking Mad To Run

      Way to go on the 5 miles, fla runner.  I am moving up this week to a 'long' run of 5 miles (been doing 4 as my long run for the last month)..haven't done 5 miles in forever, so will see how my back behaves.

       

      Sorry about the cranky hip and knee, lilac!  Good luck with your workout.

       

      Hope your insurance covers orthotics, nevrgivup, those darn things can be expensive.  Stretch, stretch, stretch that back, you don't want to end up like me, lol.

       

      Good luck to your son, Jedi, in his upcoming soccer season. Sorry about the no-gas for your long run, but no big deal, I'm sure you will just shake that off, bad runs happen on occasion.

       

      Good luck with whatever workout you decide on, April.  Yeah, who needs alarms when you have cats, lol.  They will wake you up fer sher, on their time!

       

      Enjoy the rest day, Robert.  Umm, what happens if you're doing a race and it starts pouring rain?  Gotta train for every scenario, you know.. Wink  I don't mind running in rain, but if there is lightning with the rain....forget it!

       

      Enjoy your TM run, Bruce.  Wow, the winds sound awful.  Stay safe yourself!

       

      Sorry about still being in pain, Phil.  Hope they gave you some good stuff for that..(0hhh, the colors, the colors!)  Good luck with your continuing PT.

       

      Congrats on your pool progress, Just B.S.!

       

      Good luck with the 7, Zelanie!

        Tom, have a wonderful day off. Have a great ten-miler.

        Welcome back, Angela. Enjoy your rest day. Of what kind of class are you thinking?

        Damaris, I hope that your day isn't too stressful. Have a refreshing recovery run and an amazing weight-training session.

        Adam_McAllen, feel well soon.

        kristin10185, may your rest day do your knee good.

        flarunner, bravo doing five miles before the world around you begins hollering. I admire the consistency of your early-morning runs.

        lilac_jive, have fun with the workouts.

        Hilary, good luck with the appointment. I hope that you manage to run the five that you want.

        jedigunnie26.3, running with DS sounds excellent.

        AprilRunner, may whatever you end up doing be fabulous.


        Robert, I hope that your unexpected rest day is unexpectedly pleasant.

        BruceD555, enjoy your TM run. Sleep better tonight.

        DCDan78, have amazing running and strength training sessions.

        Baboon, continue being good to yourself.

        Beth, congratulations on the achievement! The thought of swimming 400 yards easily blows my mind. Have amazing five miles to tonight.

         

        scottydawg, have a wonderful well-earned rest day.

         

        Zelanie, have a great run. Tempo miles are challenging in a fun way.

         

        I feel refreshed. I'm resisting the urge to go to the gym and do half an hour of gentle cardio. I'll hit the shower and take care of my feet.

            Happy Monday!   And, may your next run be the best one yet this month!!

            But The Smile That I Sent Out Returned With You.

              Taking an URD. I had planned to attempt 8 miles easy on the TM, but decided to just stay home and get some things done here. My ankle doesn't hurt, but I can "feel" it still. So I'll give it another day to recover.

              Nevrgivup


                I failed to mention that I had orthotics back in 2008, but stopped wearing them because they were hard to get used to.  I also didn't like how rigid they were. Well I know that in order to prevent further injuries, I have to wear them, plus my right heal has been bugging me.  I saved the orthotics, brought them with me today, and its only going to cost me like $50 to refurbish them. Sweet!

                Running is my mental-Ctrl-Alt-Del. 

                  Good morning dailies,

                   

                  I'm not sure what's going on with me lately, but I didn't run at all last week ... Except maybe to the corner store to buy junk food. I hope I don't mess up my spring by being lazy.

                    No running today, but to the gym i go after work. HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE!

                      To everyone having not so great sleep, sorry to hear that.

                      To everyone who is having okay sleep, nice to hear that.

                      Kay - hope things get better, and stop freaking out Smile

                      Damaris - One of my cats kept meowing at our door, 4 cats, 2 bowls of food (each holds like a cup and a half)  and yet they eat it all within 8 hours Confused None of them are fat either!!!!

                      My son fought sleep until......... around midnight I think, then I finally got to sleep. He woke me up around 3:30 a.m, unhappy, hungry and a wet diaper. Will SOMEONE please tell me they stop trying to fight you eventually!!! I swear, my son just found out a few weeks ago that he could roll from his back whenever and wherever, so when I try to change his diaper or change his clothes, he is trying to get away from me, normally it's hilarious but at 3 in the morning it is aggravating. My little angel turns 10 months this Wednesday!!!!!! I can't believe we're two months from a year, it doesn't feel like that long at all. He is such an awesome little monkey, and his personality is really starting to show now <3 <3 <3

                      I have an easy 5 miler tonight, I feel pretty good and ready and not in the mood for slow and easy but I'll do it anyways.  It's going to be around 45 this evening during my run, it is going to feel AMAZING. Last night I took my dog Rocky for an almost 4 mile walk, it was 50 degrees and windy, near the river it was a bit chilly but I felt great in short sleeves.

                      Update: I was looking over my results for Saturday's race just out of curiosity, and then I decided to look in age group and was pleased. In females 25-29, out of 52 finishers I placed 13! What is even cooler about that is my little angel was born April 13, 2012 (Friday the 13th). My lucky number is 13!!!! It is so awesome!!!

                          Good afternoon dailies!  We were supposed to do Chest and Back this morning and run this afternoon, but DS was throwing up last night and was in our bed this morning when it was time to get up to workout.  I didn't have the heart to wake the poor thing up at 4:30 so we just slept in. We will get our run done this afternoon though.  Hope everyone has a great day!!

                            Tears, lol. I guess I have to consider myself lucky to work for DH, he's understanding if I come in 9:30, 10:30 and sometimes 11 a.m if I'm up all night. Usually I can find something to distract him long enough to change his diaper or clothes........... but then there are those times when he is like "See Ya!!!", and boy does he move!! It's awesome watching him grow and learn, but I am about to buy pull ups in his size, it would make things so much easier lol.

                              Top of the afternoon to you all!  Got in 6.45 recovery miles in some high winds this morning, and will shoot for about 8 more miles later today.  I feel like I'm wasting gas driving to my running spot twice, but I'm doing my best to make sure that all of my runs aren't 12 miles or more because I know my body can't handle that yet.

                                I went to the gym and did Myrtl and 3x45" of standard core.

                                 

                                I had about 20 minutes to burn before I had to be back at work, and I needed powdered sugar and butter to make cupcakes tonight (don't worry, I will share with you guys). I thought I'd be crafty and pick them up at CVS down the road. Well, they had 3 types of granulated sugar but no powdered. Booooo. Guess I still need to go to the grocery store on the way home.
