Doing okie dokie.

Wednesday, November 04, 2009

Ran on lunch today - 4 miles, woot.

I gave myself permission to run faster on this run -- I wanted to make sure I beat the setting sun! :) And I was under 11 min miles, even including my 5 min walking warmup. WOOoOooo hoo. It's nice to know that I'm not just SLOW just cause I've been doing as my training plan told me and taking everything at an easy pace. I think it is good for me to push it every now and again even though I'm not officially doing any REAL speed work.

I've been running past the same homeless person for the past couple of weeks at least though on this route... I don't feel threatened, but it is kinda odd. I rarely come across a homeless person in this city -- anyway. He has apparently taken to camping out in the parking lot at one end of this trail I frequent. Should I call someone about him?? I think the first or second time I saw him was that time I ran in the rain not too long ago. It was the second time because the first time he was sleeping in his pile of stuff when I first ran past that area and when I came back he was getting up out of it and I was like OH! There is a person there! Then he was just standing with his umbrella the day it was raining.

Just not sure what to do about that, if anything.

Yesterday my stomach felt better after I ate my snack -- I had some oatmeal instead of my lighter planned snack. I'm pretty sure I was just underfueled, because I ran 7miles in the heat and had eaten less than normal for breakfast and forgot my Gu -- normally I'll do one for that distance.

So yay for that! (well, feeling better, not for being a dope and not eating enough)

I guess that's about it for now. Tomorrow is 11/5 - marathon 12/5. 17 more runs between now and the big day. :)

    Good to hear you had a good run. I work with the homeless population (mentally ill and addicted homeless). They are more resourceful than many give them credit for. Many want to be left alone. You might try smiling or nodding your head as you run by and see how he responds. If you have some kind of emergency responders in your area, you might give them a call and let them know.

    I suggest contacted The United Way for the homeless guy. When I lived in WA state there were LOTS of them and this organization was the best at helping them out. Also, I do know for a fact that the Salvation Army here has a shelter - they may be another good agency to contact about him.

And WAY TO GO once again! Awesome!

    Over here there is a lot of homeless people. But there are also organizations that are willing to help. I would def. look into some and see what they can do. If you feel threatened, you can call the cops but to be honest they don't do nothing but make the person move on. Just let DH & friends/co workers know when you are going on these runs so they can look at for you. Hopefully this person can get some help they may need.

Keep on running!

    Homeless dude, being that I live in the homeless capitol of the world (seems that way at least), my advise...tell your pastor, not the cops. Your pastor can either check on him, or pass the info on to the right agency. The cops MIGHT simply harrass him...granted they might not, but...he needs assistance and understanding, not grief.

WOO HOO on your speed run!!! I need to start doing fartleks again!!!

    I loved that feeling of being able to and wanting to press harder on the short runs as my endurance advanced. WTG! You have received some good tidbits on the homeless guy. I would not call the cops. Just be aware. There is a homeless couple that lives under the bridge that I run over and back on...I do not run on the side where they are 'just in case'.

    Not sure what to do for the homeless person. I would venture that there has to be some organization that can help.

He may refuse the help though.

    Great to hear that you're feeling okay!

Here's a thought about this likely homeless fellow: there is every possibility that he is already aware of his options in your community, but *just in case* either look up shelters & services for the homeless in your area, print them out on a sheet of paper and the next time you see him just step up and say, 'hey, in case you didn't know, there is help if you don't have a place to live,' give him the paper and wish him well.

    Homeless dude - give your DH a really good description of him, just in case. Call the police (non-emergency line) to let them know he is there and you are concerned about him.

  Wish I could run under 11 miles. Keep up the good work.

I would mention the homeless person to someone who might be able to provide some help. Don't take your personal safety for granted. If you're running where he's located, you should make it a point to mention that you're running there to give a heads up to your family and friends. Better safe than sorry.

    That's a tough one sweetie....so many times they don't want help. Maybe call one of the shelters and see if they have an outreach program and they can see if he wants any help....otherwise just pray. That's what I do for all the homeless people....so glad you're feeling better and under an 11 minute mile???? W00t!!!! That is so freaking awesome!!!!!

    Under 11 minute miles! that does deserve a woohoo!
I don't know what to tell you about the homeless guy- most likely if you call anyone they'll just come tell him to leave and he'll have to find another place to stay. we don't have many here either- when i do see them it's usually on the side of the road they're traveling. confession- i keep cliff bars in my purse to give them when i pass, everyone needs to eat.
I would say steer clear- even if he seems harmless, you never know

Get it together, stomach!

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

My stupid stomach just feels... Wonky. I hate it.

It's not like I really feel SICK, I just don't feel RIGHT.

BLERGH.

But I DID have a really good 7miler before work. :) It was kinda HOT! actually. But good.

Looking at my calendar, I have 18 runs between now and the marathon.

Today we went and did the paperwork for our sublease -- we actually already have our keys and everything. :) I'm feeling SO happy that we've gotten that arranged and taken care of already. Now we just have to get the storage unit situation taken care of, and PACK.

    Sorry for the wonky stomach...(and I had to smile because my girls use the phrase "poinky" when they get a snagged fingernail, and an extreme snag is known as a "wonky poinky" in our house. hee hee hee)

There's been all kinds of illness going around lately, and who has time for that?

My Zumba shoes did not unfortunately give me added grace-you know, instantly transform me into a contender for So You Think You Can Dance or anything, and the one foot kind of hurt a little, but I think that's just because my feet aren't used to having proper arches when doing the class. Gotta break 'em in, and I think they'll be great!

Good weekend!

Monday, November 02, 2009

Not so good in the food dept -- I didn't track but I don't think I went over cals by much, but I did very stupidly kind of eat them ALL AT THE SAME TIME. haha I was NOT following my eat every 2-3 hrs plan this weekend. :P But otherwise -- this weekend was great!

Halloween party - you saw some pictures from that! FUN.

Then I got up the next morning and did my long run -- and it went really well. I felt good -- I stopped to walk and drink/gu when I had planned to and not because I was dying. Ya know? I felt pretty strong coming into the end of it, even though I was really tired of running, I didn't feel like I was about to drop or anything. Ya know? I'm feeling sooooo confident about the rest of my training and feeling good feelings about the BIG EVENT itself as well. :)

Last week I walked BEFORE I started timing my run, so I was not including my walking warmup in my time (since it was not part of my distance in my route). ANYWAY -- this time I DID get to park where I wanted so I just started my timer when I started walking my warmup -- and I still finished 11 minutes FASTER than last week. FIFTEEN minutes faster if you take out my 4 min bathroom break near the beginning. :)

The weather was much WORSE (cold and wet!), but I felt stronger and I still did much better. I think my body was less wrecked this week and not to mention I had DONE this before and the training is really working to get me capable of doing these longer distances. WOOHOO! :D

So...... now I just have ONE really long run left before the marathon -- the big 2-0. This week is 13, then the 20, then 13...10... MARATHON. Today is Nov. 2 and the Marathon is Dec 5th!!! Some serious countdown action will be taking place once it gets within 30 days! :P

AND now some more pictures -- I wanted to ask my DH's permission before sharing his Halloween photos but he was SO FREAKING ADORABLE LOOKING. He was a steampunk engineer of some kind, he had more details to it than that, but that's the general idea. :) I drew the designs on the gloves (welder's gloves from Lowe's!) and made the copper thing on his arm. Also I encouraged the purchase of the fake glasses. ;) He doesn't need them in real life.





Hope everyone has a GREAT WEEK!

    I can't remember the last time I dressed up - but I think it would be a lot of fun!! Today, I just wore a tie-dye jack-o-lantern shirt that I made last year for all my students and me. Can't wait to see your pics!!

    I didn't wear a costume, either. No one in my department did. Its sad, really, but we had meetings during which we had to appear to be professional. I'd like to see your pics! Have fun tonight.

    What? Where is their sense of adventure? Feel sorry for them: they were clearly deprived as children, and it has scarred them. emoticon

    See? that's why I won't wear my costume to work. I don't care how many people say they are dressing up. Usually, most of them don't!! emoticon

What are you dressed as? I bet you look so cool! I love Halloween!! emoticon Can't wait for the pics!

    Hmm. I'm guest-teaching a water aerobics class tomorrow at the Y. I wonder if I should try and come up with some kind of waterproof costume accoutrements? LOL

(Or the other thing I was thinking of was waterproof grease paint, but that sounds kind of messy and my rash top is brand new and I kind of don't want to smudge it...)

BTW I didn't dress up at work today, and no-one else did, either! I have a cute skunk tail and ears somewhere but ever since the contracting started I have trouble finding things in my house...

    HAHAA! That's awesome! Definitely post photos! I love it! It's like that episode of "The Office" when Pam is the only one at the NYC office who dresses up!
