    Around here the women 40-49 AG is one of the most competitive ones! My only hope is that some of those women move up to 50-59 before I turn 40!

      I can't believe how all you youngsters are talking!  I can't even remember my 30s, it's been so long. Smile

       

      I'm fast approaching the age group where a fart is not to be trusted.

        Good evening, everyone! I hope that you've been behaving today.

         

        It's been hectic since I awoke. I just left the gym, where I did weights, forty-five minutes on one of the elliptical machines (I did the hill program), and push-ups. Now, I need to do my ab work, eat dinner, and take a shower.

          Hey all.

           

          3.2 miles @ 9:04 on the 'mill.  Felt great.  5 days till HM blast off.  I'm already so anxious.

            Finished my last swimming class of six tonight and felt amazing. Luckily, I've signed up for more, to get even better. I can't believe how uncomfortable I was the first time in the pool compared to how I felt today. The best part, is that my body is already conditioned cardio wise, its just putting everything together. Swimming is a really coordinated sport. Who needs weights when you can workout in the water. I had a crazy arm workout just by treading water in the deep end tonight. Smile

            Running is my mental-Ctrl-Alt-Del.

                        Ab work didn't happen. Unexpectedly, I went out with a friend. I'll double the ab work tomorrow. While out, I indulged myself with another shoe: the Saucony ProGrid Ride 5. I'll try that and the Altra Intuition 1.5 for the rest of the runs I have planned before the marathon and decide which one I'll take with me to Israel.
