    I think I may use that quote for myself for awhile - "It's ludicrous these mortals even attempt to enter my realm!"

      DAY

      PLANNED RUNNING CORE/STRENGTH TRAINING COMMENTS
      Mon Core/UB Strength    50 min A good workout
      Tues 6 Miles 6 miles w/hill work   Felt good
      Wed 4 Miles 4 miles 45 min With some speed work due to the urgency of needing a bathroom
      Thurs 5 Miles w/2 Tempo Miles  5 miles   Mile 3, first tempo mile at 9:02.  Yea!! Mile 4, second tempo mile, Garmin lost satellite.  However, I believe it was around the same pace.  Yea!
      Fri Core/UB Strength      Took a rest day
      Sat 8-9 Trail Miles 8 miles    
      Sun 14 Trail Miles 15 miles    
      Total   38 miles 95 min  

       

      My new schedule with my new coach.  Like the previous coach, I'm having to figure out where to incorporate my strength training time.  Monday and Friday are suppose to be rest days, but if I did my regular Tues/Thurs thing, I'd have to get up an hour earlier to fit it all in before.

       

      Also, have to switch my long run days on the weekend as our church is having a "Clean Up the Neighborhood" work day.  And I have to bake cookies.  Not sure why I volunteered to do that since I haven't baked cookies in years.  It could be ugly . . .

        mta-OM, I just saw your joke.  Good one.  He's from Ireland so I'm sure his recipe would involve Irish whiskey!  Glad you got a yoga class in already this week.  After my race Saturday was the perfect time for my class.

          I stopped baking cookies years ago when I realized I was the main consumer of said cookies. Probably wouldn't remember how to do it now!

           

          Step back week for me with a 5k trail race on Saturday.

            And here I was expecting a cookie recipe to follow!

             

            Ludicrous cookies, Leslie, that's what you should bake. Yeah, that's the ticket...

             

            I get my plan for the week on Tuesdays, when I meet with my coach. Driving my daughter up to college Wednesday, staying over and returning Thursday, so I'm not sure how my week's activities will pan out. Long run of only 14 miles this weekend, woohoo!

                Hey Jim! I was just wondering how you were doing! Good job on the rehab/recovery!

                  Hey Jim! I was just wondering how you were doing! Good job on the rehab/recovery!

                   

                  Same here! Glad to see you here again. Smile


                  Finally!!

                    sounding like great progress, Jim.  Keep up the good work, and hope to see some of this running stuff mentioned not too far into the future.

                    I think I need to figure out someplace to run a race.

                     

                      Jim is walking!!  Woo Hoo!! That deserves some dancing banana. 

                       

                      On the cookie front - the first batch turned out great!  And I was so proud of how well they were turning out that halfway through cooking them I decided to do another batch.  . . . . . that batch ended up in the trash can.  Note to Self:  When the recipe says the butter needs to be room temp/ softened, it means it.  I didn't let the butter warm up enough for the 2nd batch and it didn't come together - at all.

                       

                      And speaking of cookies - my friend, Sheryl, came by while I was in with a client and dropped off four of her fair blue ribbon chocolate chip cookies.  I'm staring at them now, wishing I had a nice big glass of ice cold milk to go with them.  YUM!

                          Thank you for the Good wishes! I have to say its awesome to be able to get out there and start exercising again! I'm sure it'll be a few more months before I'm able to try and start running again, I put 15 lbs on while layed up in the chair ( My Daughter kept feeding me frozen peanut butter cups, its her fault! Wink ) So hopefully I'll start dropping some weight soon.
