Singer who doesn't run.
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." And some penguins don't run at all, we just hang out for the company! 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!)
When it's all said and done, no one remembers how far we have run. The only thing that matters is how we have loved.
PVI = Personal Vocal Instruction. Basically a 30-minute (or hour, or whatever) voice lesson. Apologies for the jargon!! But it was fun, though not quite as interactive for me as the last set. The other assistant director was there as well, and I think our director thought it was a touch intimidating to have three of us chiming in. It's all good.
Went out for my walk with DH and Dusty this morning, even though I got to bed quite late last night. So I feel good about that, but kinda groggy in general. Waiting for insurance to clear me to get the Cpap ... I suspect, given how bureaucracy works, it'll be next week sometime. I'd like to be pleasantly surprised, because I doubt I'll sleep well when I first get it, and wouldn't it be nice to get used to it over a long weekend? But either way, it'll be all good.
We're heading out of town for a couple of days. We wanted to go hiking and camping before Labor Day weekend makes the campgrounds too crowded, but Ben's illness made us wait. He seems to be back to normal now. Weather is supposed to be good for the next few days but Harvey's remnants are arriving this weekend. I won't be running much, but hopefully I'll get some decent hikes in.
Glad Ben is feeling better!! Hopefully things won't be too crowded -- if the rain holds off, the weather should be pretty good.
Afternoon! I have 7 miles with 8 X 100m and my PT exercises (since I'm only going to PT twice this week).
HopesMom, I should have known what that is since I used to sing in groups and stuff. Glad it went well.
Ginny, glad he is back to normal. Is he coming with you?
