So, I went walking this morning. I did run a few steps, but not uphill. Uphill is when it hurts:( I did get new sneaks though! I got Saucony Hurricanes, which I love, in hot pink. Gotta love new running shoes:)

Nera-I have one like that.. my eldest. She did do some applying and looking around on her spring break, though.She KNOWS she HAS to have SOME sort of money earning job this summer or she'll be walking and hitching rides another year.
Nice job with running alongside baby's bike, Rich. Is your body holding out okay with no breaks?
It's another sunny morning here and I heard birds singing me awake. I'm finishing up my coffee and then heading out for a walk. Later we're going to Granny's for egg coloring with ALL the cousins(20ish) and then I'm hoping for a walk with my favorite SIL.
Probably won't be here tomorrow so : HAPPY EASTER!!!!

I didn't realize it has been a week since I have posted on here. Not much going on. Son was home for spring break. He was suppose to apply for some jobs for the summer. Didn't do one. Told me on wedsday it didn't matter when he did it as he had all week. Yup he had all week but still couldn't make the time or "remember" to apply. Just a little bit irrititated. Looks like I get to spend the summer being the only employed person in our household. Yeah me!!!!

I've already got 27 miles of walking this week(so wish I could say RUNNING) and still have 2 days more!! I want to keep moving to get this baby out. Hmm.. thinking again, maybe he/she is rockin' and rolling happily there with all this walking? Oh, no!!! What if he doesn't WANT to come out??!!!! HAHA!!

Hi guys! Where did the week go? This weekend is our annual JASR race weekend. Some of you will remember that. It's usually so much fun with lots of sparkers but this year it happens to fall on Easter so no spark gathering. Boo! But I am still running it.
Doris-I am so sorry you have a hammy strain. I have had issues with a chronic hammy strain since my first half marathon in 2009. Comes and gos...hate it. Feel better. (Or should I say heal fast).
Yay to Rich and Yay to Christy!

Anne

I am officially sidelined with another injury. Strained hamstring that is affecting my hip as it hurts quite a bit. No tear this time though. Two weeks of not running for me. Sigh.

emoticon Spot. Got released from my physical therapist yesterday after only two sessions. Woot! Trying like the dickens to kick this cold now so I can get back to my wo's. Making a super fast trip to Idaho this weekend to see friends from the East Coast that I haven't seen in years. Going to be about as many hours in the car as I'm there but so worth it.

Good morning! We have been renovating at our son's house the past two weekends. Well, I have been helping my husband on the weekends. He has been there more than me, but we are almost finished. I love how good rooms look after they are freshly renovated and with a new coat of paint everywhere!

I did get a window of time in yesterday for a run, so I grabbed it and went just over 7 miles. It felt great!

Rich, starting in May we will live on a boat so I don't have to worry about hills as much. Most of the North East coast of the US is hilly though. But, I will swim in cold water too:)

Thanks Bobby. I think its kinda funny that many of the poses shown were also shown to me by a physical therapist. There a few that look new to me. I'll give them a try and see what happens.
Just a short excursion today. My hamstring is still very sore when I walk uphill. Hard to avoid as I live on top of a hill. I guess I need to drive to a flatter area until the leg is better. Blech.
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

Windy, windy, windy today. Tomorrow is more of the same but not as cold. PHew.
So, who knew that DH was in need of some retail therapy! We went to the local outlets and spent a few hours window shopping. I did get new running shoes:) Woot woot.

Hi guys! 10 mile long run today...ugh...my legs were just achy the whole time. One of those runs were I wasn't really feeling it. But my pace was good (for me) and I finished. That's what matters.
Carrie-we are in for the snow also. Sunday evening thru Monday-6-8 inches and snow all week. Seriously?
Doris-I use a runners yoga stretch dvd I have to work my hamstrings. Feels good. I have real issues with my hammys.

Later.

Hello all!

I think I'm being punished for getting so excited about my vacation - it's flurrying on and off today, and there is talk of more snow coming tomorrow night into Monday. Yuck.

Today I am working on my cycling class - I teach my first class on Tuesday!

Have a super day!

Pretty tired today. I worked 5 hours of overtime and tonight I have to go see a friends's kid in a high school play. I hope it is not a long play. Finally some sunny weather here and snow melting. To bad we have so much to melt this year.

If I drank coffee it would be a two cup day for me as well. We did indeed get a foot of snow. I got stuck on my way home from work. A nice man pulled me out of the ditch with his tractor. Phew. Finally got home, took almost 2 hours to travel the 15 miles home.
Rich, you rock man!
Carrie, sun and sand.....oh, why can't I go to?
Nera, the bike/treadmill is good too:)
Hmm, what else? Oh, my calf is all better but my hamstrings are quite tight. I need to find the right stretch for that. I have found several on-line but need something else. Any suggestions??

Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

Rich-woo hoo on that streak!

Trish-hugs!

Doris-hope the legs are feeling better. Ouch!

Carrie-you’re off vacationing in sun and sand so you likely won’t see this but have fun. Soak up some rays for me.

Nera-time away is always nice but coming back home is always a relief. Glad you got away for a couple days though.

I’ve gotten out for two runs now, both of them only two miles and both of them were TOUGH. My legs were so sore after the first one. I made it to the gym for spin this morning-again, pretty tough. I’ve clearly lost a lot of conditioning since my injury but I’m holding out hope that consistency will have me quickly improving.

Morning runners! Looks like my day off morning run might have to be on the treadmill..*sigh*. It is sleeting/freezing rain quite a bit. It might turn to rain later but it will still be in the 30's..brrr...

My legs have bothered me a lot since my fall but that might just be an issue from a flare with this stupid health issue! Gonna run and give it a try!
Carrie-have fun in the sun and think of all of us back in Pa freezing!
Rich-all I can say is Wow...you are a running God!
Nera-glad you had a break but I get you on being happy to be home.

Enjoy your Monday all!

So, no run today for me. My calf muscle is quite sore. DH is massaging it for me as I type. Gotta love a man who will massage sore muscles:) He says it starts with the calf and then moves to the back and shoulders and neck.......hmmm there may be something to his statement.
So, cold and windy today but sunny. Tomorrow, sunny and cold and then, snow. That dreaded four letter word that will fall from the sky. I like to think of it as snowmen, some assembly required. But, really, a foot of snow, now??? Blech.

Hope everyone has a great start to the work week.

Back from a short weekend trip to a friend's cabin. Nice break and it only costs us the gas to get there. Just nice to be home in my own space and not be around 20 different people and personalities.

Carrie, good vacation for you:)
Trish, glad you guys got to talk things out. It always feels better after.
Rich, only 44K huh? What's up with that, running fool:)
Hmmm, I have forgotten what else I wanted to say. OH well. This past week I have done better with food and exercise. Unfortunately, I strained a hamstring today. It isn't torn, did that last year, but it is a little sore. Its funny though, only aches when I run uphill. Maybe my run today was the issue......1.6 miles downhill, a loss of almost 1200 feet, then turn around and run 1.6 miles up hill. OK, I walked part of the uphill as it is steep! Tomorrow, some major stretching and maybe a muscle rub.

Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

Hello all!

Trish - have a wonderful time with the kiddos!

It's finally here. I am crying tears of joy. My last day of work before vacation. I think I'm just slightly nuts about this... I'm teaching art today. Very glad it's an easy day before I head off into the warmth!

Hey everyone:) Tomorrow we are heading to Vernon for a tournament. Josh is playing with Miss's ringette team, so we are hoping for a wonderful showing:) We are also getting to have a couple days away from Don's illness...just let the kids have some good times. Don is staying home, and we will be in a hotel for a couple of days.

I'll try to stay in touch:)

Love you guys, today I did a nice 12 k'er....it felt awesome:)

Hey everyone:)

Tonight was a great night for us....Don lost it with both kids, so I sat and talked to them about what was going on. Don came out, and joined in...he ended up realizing that he needs to change how he reacts to stuff because he isn't really there for most of what is going on. All of us felt way better at the end of the conversation.

Hope you all are having an awesome week!!

Hi all! I did a short 3 miler on the treadmill today after work. We have horizontal snow and BIG winds so tm it was! Was a good run and my hamstring seems fine after my face plant I had during my long run on Saturday. Different body parts are still stiff but I think I will live!
Carrie and Deej-53 days until the Pig! (That's what Nancy said..wait that may have been yesterday)...52 days until the Pig!
Hey Deej..I think we have the same shoes..love mine!

Hey Kids! Long time no Ceeeeeeeeeee How goes it?

Sorry to be MIA but between work & life & Facebook, I find little time these days for anything else. Feel bad about that cuz SparkPpl is what intro'd me to you wonderful peeps!

Thinkin' of ya Trisha babe but you know that!!

Bobby D I'm about to give that calf of your a cussin' & I don't cuss!! So ready to find a fix for that!

Carrie, you look great! Can hardly wait to see you again soon!!

Christy, so glad you're healing! You sound very "up" & positive :) love that!!

My training miles are building again, slowly but surely. I plan to run the half at the Pig so hoping I can build to a couple 10 milers by then. So far it's been mostly 2s to 3s with one run at 4.5 before running a 5K last Saturday. I was a couple mins slower than my PR but very satisfied with it considering my recent return after 3 mos off. Lovin' my new Mizunos and they're a bold watermelon red w/ neon green emblem... I figure the flashy color is what got me across finish :) HA!

Good to catch up a little with y'all... would take me days to read back enough :( will try to be better about checkin' in!

Hi all!

Thanks, Anne!

Rich - I would almost give my right arm for some sun.

I got in some TM miles today. It was soooo painful. Mentally painful, not physically. I think I'm getting exercise burnout...

Well today is supposed to be the last day of this heatwave we have set a record of consecutive hot days on record apparently.

A walk on the beach today with DH. It was a little brisk, think hats, mittens and winter coats. But it sure was beautiful! Sunshine, fried dough and the ocean. Life is good....OK, maybe the fried dough wasn't the best choice I could have made but it was yummy.

Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

Thurs into Friday: another foot of snow. Saturday, sunshine and 50 degrees. Gotta love NH in March. Sheesh. Yesterday am, great run. Left in a light jacket and long sleeve shirt, came home in the shirt with sleeves pushed up. Gorgeous day to be outside. Today, sorta sunny and 42. I'll take it!
