Windy day

Sunday, April 07, 2013

It was too windy to launch the kayaks today. It was warm enough, but just too stiff a breeze. Maybe next weekend we can get out there.. I did have a lovely lunch with my parents and my brother. I made a quick and simple veggie soup and put together fancy grilled cheese sandwiches to go with it. I put onion, mushroom, red bell pepper, ham, and two kinds of cheese on the sandwiches. They turned out pretty tasty and the soup was delicious. Came home after lunch and took the dog out for a nice long walk on a beautiful, sunny day. I was going to walk him farther than I did, but he looked a little tired, so I made the decision to head for home, instead of taking the turn to go for another 2 miles. Still 6.8 miles isn't bad. He also got some outside play time off the leash up at my parents' house, so he is a pooped puppy tonight. I will take him out for a short walk in a few minutes.

It is supposed to rain off and on all week. We can use the rain, but Cooper doesn't like to walk in it, so I am thinking my mileage might go down a little this week. That is okay, I put in nearly 120 miles last week. I will get to the gym for my workouts on Monday and Wednesday, so hopefully my mileage will still be reasonable. I am trying to decide if I should move my third gym workout of the week to Thursday, instead of Friday. If I go Friday it will have to be a short workout, but if I go Thursday I can take my time. I normally plan on going three times a week, but have really been averaging more like two times a week. (And then some weeks I go four times, it really depends on my mood.)

I have an embarrassing problem... when I runon the treadmill I have an issue with "leakage". It is only on the treadmill, and only after I have run about three miles. It is distressing though, and uncomfortable. Does anyone else have this problem, or know what I can do to minimize or prevent it from happening?

    Sounds like an excellent day and wonderful exercise.
    Re: Treadmill: Yes yes I wholeheartedly recommend the kegel exercises. I have a sheet (from a dr that specializes in women's issues) that explains exactly how to do them correctly. Will look for it. It talks about how long to tighten/how long to release and suggests to do it religiously in the shower every day. (just somewhere daily:-) Like 15 times or something like that. I will send you an email once I find the sheet.

    I Did the kegel exercises,,,, it didn't take long,,, and my leakage was pretty bad,, now my control is Awesome !!!!! It was bad for even "normal" times.

    Hope this gives you HOPE !!! It sure did ME !! BUT !! If not done correctly my Dr said its like "not doing them at all". So you will prob want ur dr to show you how,,,,cos she said,,, even the slightest difference makes all the difference.

    Kegel exercises might help, but can any one say Poise pads?

    Don't know how to fix your treadmill, but I hope somebody here does.

    We had the high winds yesterday. We had to cut back a bit on our walk, but figured it was still a good workout fighting the wind. It's too bad you couldn't get out the kayak, but hopefully soon you can. Hopefully the weather will start to settle into spring here soon.

    One of my team mates uses an adult pull up to exercise in. It looks normal when we are working out.

    Sorry you didn't get to go on your paddle. You still had a really good day.

    Hope your week works out they way you want it to.

    I found out I can't do any running due to the same issue. Bummer. Doctor recommended practicing "squeezing" to try to strengthen the muscles that control that area. I just don't skip any bathroom opportunities if possible.
