Trish sorry about your shoulder. I hope the doctor has good news for you.

Wow earthquakes. Never been in one and it isn't on my bucket list to be in one. LOL!!!

Anne glad Bobby's mom is starting to do better.

I am finding out there are a lot of parents in the no summer job club. Really stinks. Now waiting on fincial aid packet. Considering how things have been going not expecting good news.

So, we are headed home tomorrow. It will be a long day for sure! The boat was surveyed today, like a home inspection, it took 8 hours! We had her taken out of the water to look below the water line, went for a short motor and a short sail. There were no real surprises but she does have a bottom issue that is covered under warranty. Hopefully, the manufacturer will see it our way! It will be months before we can have her sailed home so, wintering in Tortola for the boat. Sigh. It will give us a reason to come back in Feb though!:) I will catch up when we get home as the internet is very spotty here.

Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

I all! Haven't been on in a while. Bobbys mom has shown a bit of promise. She has made a few comments that made sense and is drinking a bit of liquid! She had a UTI that ran rampant through her body and it looks like a long road of recovery. We are to find her a nursing home for now. *sigh* This is hard!
My foot is cooperating nicely but doesn't like the treadmill much. The elliptical didn't bother it tho. (think it was Christy who asked). I might have to use the tm again tomorrow as it is to be 94 degrees and I have to run after work (2 ish). Too hot for this girl. But I will get it in!
Did a great strength training workout today after work, and after our Spark Live class. Now I need to get dinner and get some of the house cleaned up before I head to bed again. This 4 a.m. wake up sucks!
Rich and Maddy...scary on the earthquake! Glad all is well!
Beth-Vegas baby!
Everyone else...keep up the great workouts!

Anne

So sitting watching TV last night and shake shake shake - Earthquake - now before you get too worried people all ok but it was the biggest one in our state for over 100 years. It was a bit freaky never really felt one like that before. Previous experience was driving when one hit about 100km away and finding myself on other side of the road and just a kind of a big wind feeling a couple of years ago. wow.

Today is Wed. Next Wed will be my last workday before heading off to Gold Coast Marathon and a week of holidays. YEAH BABY

HI!!! just a quick checkin...i didn't exercise today-I'm trying to eat well and I'll juice up some veggies later. I've had a weird,slow moving virus since I got back from Ragnar...started in my roof of mouth(swollen,),then scratchy "cold is coming" throat. I've had a dull headache for 3 days now and this morning my head and neck hurt and neck is stiff. Chiro said my atlas is in but there are swollen lymph nodes(I'm not surprised). I took 800 mg ibuprofen and hopefully,will catch a little nap.
Christy-I get worn out from having all the kids around ,too-but I supposed I'm used to it. :)
Beth-have fun in Vegas!!
Nera-join the 'nojobforthesummer' parents' club...
Trish-HUGS!!!

Hello all!

Just got back from the gym... did 2.5 miles on the TM, a Pilates class, and then another 1.5 miles to get to my scheduled four miles today. Yahoo! It's going to be a good day. Hubby is making lunch for me, the house stuff is getting done, and I'm well on my way to getting all my water! Yahoo!

Scored 5.5 on the "ground shaking measuring thing". Small but I think 5.1 of it was happening in my lounge room! Shame I wasn't making popcorn at the time!!

Aftershocks? Oh no, it's beddy byes time. Tremoring Tuesday is done and dusted. No Wobblying Wednesdays!

Beth. On Jul 3, I'm doing the Midnight Run just before Midnight July 4 kicking off the holiday. Very cool tech shirts! It's a great run as it's a causeway course on the Gulf of Mexico...cool running!
I signed up for the Run Thru Hell on July 8. AFTER signing up, I asked if there were any obstacles, etc. Answer? "Oh, no, running in Tampa during the month of July is the HELL part!" Nice. Trust me when I say I will be very careful on this one and not look for any PBs. I'll also declare AUGUST as recovery month!

Hey everyone!!

Did NO cardio today. Did have the ultrasound of my shoulder. Apparently I have a rather large tear, and 3 smaller ones in my shoulder. I am seeing an orthopedic surgeon next week. No in a good space...sorry, it has been a really rough 3 years, and now it looks like it will be another one.

hugs and love,
Trish

Good evening all!

Beth - I spent today in my sweats, and took two naps under the blanket. Weird weather. But it's supposed to be hot the next few days... tomorrow I need to wake up early for a run! Four miles scheduled for tomorrow.

The hubby's family is big on celebrating birthdays. My family really isn't. Not sure why most of them didn't come last weekend.

Bad news. My son got the call today and he didn't get the job at the thrift store. I think they wanted someone who would be around longer. Now with just two months left unless he finds a temp job it looks like a no job summer.

Penny!!! HA!! I'm glad that I am not alone in my 'thoughts' while typing certain phrases!!
So, I'm thinking I'll go for all 3 races in August...I'm super excited for that 1/2 and would hate to miss it! If anything,I"ll miss the 12k but it's around a lake,too and would like to see that.
So, we had a t-storm roll thru today. Temps dropped about 15 * instantly,some of us sat on the porch swing wrapped in blankets thru it all...LOVED IT!!! Then, I put on jeans and my RUM longsleeve and headed out...and was way too hot! LOL! Ran errands,made dinner(chicken tacos and taco salad). HOLY COW these kids can eat! 3 bags of lettuce and it's G.O.N.E. GONE!!!
So, I went out early (well 8am) for 5 miles and came back and Jacob and I went 3 and JohnPaul accompanied us for 2 of those 3...people were smiling at 'me and my boys' as they passed us. Time to reg. for this weekend's race...See ya'll tomorrow!

Penny---that is a fantastic time!!! Congrats!!

Doris---sounds like a nice day...but yeah, they could have told you!!! Hope you hear soon on the boat!!

Anne---I found one, it was too small....so took it back today and found the perfect one.....not I don't feel like 150 degrees while working out!!! I get so hot I can't stand it...this helps A TON!!!!
Thats a great idea on the kids parties....I can imagine that they would get to be alittle overwhelming with 11 each year...
You could do both...but NOT race the first...just go and have fun AND NOT PUSH THROUGH IT!!

Deej--love the news on the pool tourney!!!

Carrie---great job on the ST...chilly, really??? Its 82 here and the heat and humidity are not hear yet....coming tomorrow....thank goodness for A/C...

Had an appt today, did some errands then came home and did BBl...been a good day....

Good afternoon all!

Deej - nothing makes me happier than to read one of your posts. It immediately brightens my day!

Got in a good ST workout this morning - it's actually kind of chilly today; I'm sitting around in my sweatpants. Sheesh. Summer...???

Have a super day!

Top o' the mornin' to ya Rooks!!

Penny, WOO HOO Momma Roo on rockin' another half :) that's a fabulous time.... Whoa be the hills!

Beth, Hope Coop doesn't need more meds in the mix! Bet you're beyond excited about Vegas! I just signed up Sat for a Sept 1st half... we can virtually train together (along w/ Fanny Annie:)

Anne, I too plan to check in more often... Spark's where we were all intro'd.. love this team!! Very cool to work in runs with Jacob!! As for two back-to-backs, I was nervous when I did it (8 days apart), but approached it as if I was runnin' a full with a break between LOL turned out both were PRs (wasn't even goin' for that)... with wise training & the right approach... yep, you CAN!! You're a STRONG runner!

Doris, Good luck w/ the boat! Wish I could afford one!!

Rich, smart boy no race a week out!! I love my cushioned Asics, a mental thing for me I think to have the padding/protection post fractures.

As I posted on facebook, DS, Kyle's, team (pool) is going to Nationals; a hard fought battle over the weekend... 1st two matches they took pretty quickly but Sat night & all day yesterday they had a fight to win. Kyle only started playing a short time ago & he's pretty good... we're proud of his skill. (he's their "strategy" player???) So they are the Champs of this Division & advance to Vegas where teams from all over the US, Canada & Japan will compete for the APA Championship. Asked him why it's not called Internationals LOL He said only Canada & Japan send teams... otherwise, all USA.

About to fire up the computer for a busy work week & will spend evenings prepping for a huge moving sale with Sis & Bro (we all moved within past few mos).... gonna attempt to clear out at least 1 huge storage building & get it down to only 1.

No running since Friday but ya know.... such is life & I'm too blessed to complain!

Love to yuz..... run SAFE & STRONG!

Doris-I can imagine what I 'd look like..HAHA! but I DO try to teach them using silverware. :) Hope the boat works out! and swim/sun...sounds fab!
Beth-did you find a fan?
Rich-poor toesis...
Penny-you're running so ma ny 1/2s that I don't know whether you're coming or going!! Great job!
Nera-we don't have many parties here for kids. Don't invite any outside family(just Mom,Dad and all the kids). When the kids are 5,10 and 15 or 16 they have a 'kid' party with friends and games,etc. Jacob turns 10 this year so guess there's one coming up.
I'm debating on a 1/2 on Aug. 18. It's just 2 weeks before the 1/2 I'll run in our hometown with my 'old' friend. Also, she and I might run a 12k(that's 7.46 miles for my US friends) on Aug. 4. I just REALLY want to do that 1/2 b/c it's a tough course and ONLY $20 entry!!! DD did it last year and I drove the whole route(HILLS and HEAT). Tell me what ya'll think I should do!!!! Both 1/2's ???
Okay-super tired here. We didn't do anything fancy for Father's Day-hubby weeded the garden,poor guy . but he's tinkering with his copper fountain that he started 10 yrs ago so I know he's happy. Tomorrow's a run day and some errands,too(I HATE running errands)Thinking of 5-6 myself and taking Jacob on 3ish if I can get him up early en ough to avoid the heat. Talk atchya later!!

Rich, I love Saucony hurricanes! I need pronation support for my left foot but not the right. They are super!
No news on the boat. Did not really expect to hear anything today anyway. DH and taxied to Road Town to souvenir shop. You'd think the hotel front desk could have told us not much is open on Sunday. Sheesh. We did walk the 4+ miles back to the hotel. Then, it was hot so we hung out at the beach.....swimming, sunning, swimming, swimming......

Beth, the HM went well. It was a LOT of uphill running. I'm fairly content with my time (2:28:43) as we walked a bit after my friend started feeling pain in her hip flexor muscle. I did a 7 km recovery run today and feel pretty good, too.
Back later, Roo calls!

I didn't realize that I had not checked in on saturday. We did a family birthday party for my son. Might be the last one. He hates the parties and only about half of my hubby's family decided to show up.

Then when they left(which was early barely there 2 hours) I went make up brush shopping. Wow is all I can say. For the price of some of those things I could send my son to college. LOL!!!!

I hope everyone's races went well. I hope that Rich's poor toes are better. And I hope everyone has an awesome father's day.

Ok so nicked out 20k in the new Saucony Hurricane's very comfy and seem to work on the pronation control front. As for the blister bleh my right foot still getting bottom of toe blisters - so not sure if it is due to newness or not. I am hoping so. Dont know what to do to sort this I end up running from about the 12k mark today with bloody sore foot and just have to push through. Does not make sense I have the right shoes the right socks etc etc etc..... argh!

Pray for my toes please peeoples .... hope thats not selfish...

It's been a VERY long day but I wanted to pop in and congratulate the racers that ran today and say "Good Luck!" to the racers who are running tomorrow. May the wind be at your back and the run be safe and fun.

Hope all are well. Doris hoping you get good news on the boat.

Good vibes to all our racers this weekend.
Next week I am volunteering at a race - its a race I was hoping to actually run but dont want to race only 1 week out.

I have a longish to do today - not sure how far I will go am just going to listen to the body. Will be trying out my new Saucony's - they are said to have good control and good cushioning. I have this strange issue really in that I need quite good pronation control on the left foot and my right foot seems to need more cushioning. I feel like I have been doing the shoe merrygoround in trying to get the best result. Hoping this choice is a forward step.

Cheers

Keeping our fingers crossed that the seller will accept the offer on a boat that we made today. If all goes well, the boat will be in our neck of the woods mid-late July. I can't wait:) Oh, I took pictures of a momma chick and her many babies today. Reminded me of what Anneofmany would look like while teaching her kids to feed themselves. teeheehee

Good morning all!

I got in a good 6-mile run this morning. It was my longest run in over two years - felt really good. I am SO thankful that I was smarter this time around - building up my mileage slowly, taking more recovery time between runs...
Meeting my brother for lunch and then I'm doing some shopping. It's a gorgeous day today! I love summer!

Have a super day!

Hey all,

Just a quick spot tonight...I know I have been absent...but DANG Nera!!! Ya gotta warn me when you are gonna change your profile pic!!! YOU LOOK TREMENDOUS!!!!!

Thanks for your support about Miss's soccer team. The next step is to get her coach to buy into it. We will see.

Tomorrow we have soccer, then hair cuts at my girlfriends. Don is having fun in Courtenay - he will be back on Friday in time to see Miss test for her green belt.

Had a great workout day...did 35 miles on the stationary, followed up by (ok, sandwiched inbetween a couple of bike sessions) an 8 mile EFX workout....tired now, time for bed!!!

Hugs to you all:)

Trish

Hi team. I have tried to post several times but internet is spotty at best and my long post went "poof". Sheesh. Trish, glad you had a chance to talk to the girls. Beth, poor Coops:( Hope he is feeling better. Maddie, go buy some long pants girl! Rich, its is weird to think that a half marathon distance seems short to you. Hmmmm....I have forgotten what else I wanted to say!
So, tomorrow am, I am getting up and running on the DM if it is too humid outside. It seems to be OK until the sun comes up! I don't want to run in the dark in a place where they drive on "the wrong side" of the road. That could be horrible.
Anyway, I forgot to tell you guys about the chickens. I know, I have thing about chickens. We were waiting in San Juan Puerto Rico for our puddle jumper flight (8 passenger plane) and someone else was waiting with two chickens in a pet carry on bag. They were crowing up a storm in the airport! Wish I had taken a pix but I did not. Oh well. Maybe the trip home will have some other international traveling chicks!

Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

LOL, Christy, I was afraid that all that was going to hurt me today. Our instructor was all about core exercises last night. I had suspicions that I'd hurt more than I do. Apparently, I'm tougher than I gave myself credit for.
Still haven't exercised today. I'm contemplating a walk but DARN it's hard to convince myself. I'm sure Hughy and Roo would enjoy it, though.
bah humbug

Maddy-hope your dreams come true and you get yourself some long pants. Brr.

Nera-this sounds positive regarding your sons interview. Bummer that they are going to make him wait all weekend to get a call. Getting your hair done-now that’s a GREAT excuse not to exercise. I love it!

Penny-have fun sneezing through bootcamp.

Beth-poor Cooper. Does the vet have something up his sleeve to get the seizures under control?

Trish-that’s great that you stepped in and hopefully got some things straightened out for the kiddos soccer. That can’t be fun for kids to have to go to something they dread so much. Tests after the spring fair – that’s just cruel.

Rich-you’re on the home stretch to running your marathon!

Carrie-enjoy soaking up the sunshine today.

Beth-hope the new meds do the trick. That terrible not being able to sleep.

I got a run in this am. Boy was it ever windy. I HATE the wind. Will head back to the gym for ST after work then groceries to get ready for company tomorrow.

Good morning all!

Friday morning workout is done. Yahoo! The forecast is calling for another nice day, so maybe I'll go out and get some mulch for the front of our house.

Have a super day!
