Hey has someone started an august thread yet? Read a great article on a study that said running as little as 5 minutes a day will increase your life by three years. And that running more than 20 miles a week has no greater health benefits. In fact people in the study who ran 20+ miles a week lived no longer or healthier than those that didn't run at all. So seems like little running is good a lot is not so good.

This is a photo of the quilt that I was hired to make this summer.

Hey who greased the pole in the NM?????
No run today, just walking and walking and then, more walking. It was good.

Hey everyone!
This weekend is BC Day here in British Columbia, Canada....so a ton of traffic and lots of fun! Today we hit Kelowna for monkey's first guitar lesson, and Missy had a dentist appointment. Did over an hour on the dreadmill...DANG I HATE THAT THING...lol:):) But at over 40C daily, it is a necessary evil. Tomorrow Josh is participating in the Grizzly Cup auditions for the Disney Channel, so will be a really cool thing for him.

I'm thinking I am REALLY missing the Naughty Mansion, and I declare it an ALL IN WEEKEND!! I have the white chocolate hot tub fired up, and got the dancing area nice and ready:):) Thanks for reminding me Doris!!!

Hope you all had a fantastic day:):):)

If all you get is all you give, then you should only give all you''ve got.

Doris - glad to see your spirits are up emoticon
Trish - Great job on the rrwalk. Yes I totally can handle a party of beer and pizza after every run. Who doesn't need a great finish to every race? emoticon

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend. Stay strong runners! whether it is out on the road, or at home with your families.

Trish, I am glad that you are back:) We missed you and your words of wisdom. Just remember, we do need you in the NM to start the chocolate wars. hee hee hee

Ran about 1.5 miles this morning. I have run three times this week and I think I might try again tomorrow. I do have to do some strength training tomorrow too. Sigh.

Happy weekend all

Trish: Sorry that Missy is having a tough time. I think Nera had some good advice.
Today was just a pretty sucky day. The darned cat missed the dock when she went to jump off the boat. We had to fish her out of the ocean. yes, cats can indeed swim. She wasn't happy about the wet affairs. My arms are not happy about it either! She got me pretty good on my arm, I think its infected already. No insurance any more so, it will be a few hundred dollars out of pocket to see a Dr tomorrow. Kinda bad because I haven't found a Dr near us that I like yet, so I have to go to a walk-in clinic. Oh well. Could be worse, the cat could have washed out to sea!
I hope everyone has a fabulous day tomorrow, I sure plan on trying to!

Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

Trish sorry to hear your daughter is having a tough time right now. Does she have someone to talk to other than you? Some times kids need to talk and may want to say things that they think would hurt the surviving parent's feelings. I was older when my dad died but I remember thinking I couldn't talk to my mom because she all ready had so much to deal with. So if you can find her someone to listen to her, doesn't need to be a professional, that would just let her talk freely it might help. Big hugs to all of you.

Ugh...not a great day! My run was SLOW and all my joints are aching (not uncommon with me) but today was worse than usual. But I did 3 miles then walked another mile just to get my head around the crappy run. Hey, at least it was something!
Now if I could just wrap my head around eat less food...do more exercise! My meals are fine and well balanced but I am still picking at not so great stuff. Gotta get control of that!
Tater-great run! Wat to keep at it!
Doris-Oh no...that is too bad about the DH. Hope things will smooth out. And yep..angry runs sometimes are the fastest!
Trish-sorry Missy is having a difficult time. Hugs!
Penny-Mmmm frozen yogurt!
Nera-two goods against one bad is a good thing!

Doris – Hopefully it will turn around for you very soon. I’m pretty sure your hubby is kicking himself about it as well. Yes – mad running is always the fastest. Great way to relieve the stress.
Nera – great job on that ride. Keep it up!
Penny – Tough workout – you totally earned the reward.
Trish – Hugs sweetie – you have lots to deal with. You still make yourself get up and go – I admire that.

Yesterday had a weird run. Great weird.
I started out and I felt so heavy – like someone just strapped on an extra 50 lbs on me. I thought that I might have to cut it short, but I willed myself to do at least 2 miles. I ended up doing 5.4 miles and I ran the whole thing! Unusual for me. I felt great afterwards and had more energy to spare emoticon

Great Runnings Everyone!

Hot one here tonight. 31C and our training had us running hills. Three of them, though, so it was over pretty quick. Logan made me emoticon Go to Tutti Frutti afterwards. So tasty. I made sure the fruit outweighed the frozen yogurt but I still ended up with a badass case of brain freeze. I earned it tho!

Cstream I am sorry to hear about your hubby. Vent away I live with a hubby who has been known to pull a bone head move or two.

I rode the exercise bike tonight which was good. My new quilt project not working out like I hoped so that is bad. However it is mostly scrap fabric so really not costing me anything which is good. Hey two good only one bad I don't usually end up on the plus side. LOL!!!

It has been a pretty crappy week here. I just to vent a little. My DH (@%$6#& husband) did something stupid and got fired. Now, neither one of us works. I might go back to teaching full time, which I don't want to do. OK. Whine over

Did some core training, rode my one speed bike for 3 miles, then went on a 1.5 mile run. It was the fastest run I have done in a long time! Maybe being mad is good........

I'm back again today! Tracked my breakfast and lunch so far. Going to head for a strength training workout before heading out to work again (I know...weird schedules!).
Juviana-we all have runs like that but don't you feel good for sticking with it!?
Tater-I am working my upper today as well. My legs have been so tired after my runs. Great job!
Trish-Hi my friend! We will all motivate each other...right?

Squeezing in a trim on the old hair today in between jobs! Then I will cover those grays when I get home.
Later gators!

Anne – SP can be very motivating. Glad you are back with us.
Juviana – Not all runs are great – you stuck with it though, so that shows commitment.
Trish – I guess P90X got you hungry! emoticon

Yesterday felt good – I did Upper as I gave my Lower a pretty hard workup on Sunday. To say the least, I only used my legs to walk yesterday emoticon
Have a great day everyone!

Hey all!
Did a few P90X vids, and then hit the mall for retail therapy with Monkey, followed up with dinner at Montana's...YIKES!! But holy good stuff!!

Great job getting that run in the boks Juviana! I know how hard it is to overcome that "STOP" in your mind some days.

Hey Miss Anne you are doing exactly what I did....love this team, and so need their support!

No I didn't drink as much as I should have. Today was back to work and a coworker who was out for maternity leave was suppose to be back today. But surprise surprise she didn't show up. Might be in next week but I am not convinced she is coming back.

Starting a new quilting project tomorrow. Very excited about it since it is very modern very non traditional.

Hi guys! I had a nice 4 mile run today in a down pour. Felt great! Especially after all the heat and humidity we have had lately! I miss you guys and am in need of a bit of a push to lose these last few pounds. Hoping getting back on spark will do it!

Monty - great advice! I cannot wait to read your blog about the Tri. You have come a long way!

Enjoyed my run yesterday - it has been in the 100's lately, but yesterday it was in the 90's and it felt like Fall compared to other weeks emoticon
In fact I aced my dreaded hill which I dubbed "Death Hill" emoticon
Today I will concentrate on the Upper emoticon

Have a great week everyone!

Yesterday, I did the Top Gun Sprint Triathlon at Ft DeSoto here in Florida! From 5:30am on through my finish, all I heard was."HYDRATE!" That's all I needed to hear! After my swim & bike legs, I still needed to insure I was good to go on my run! We had 3 water stations on the 5K, 90 degree run with cold water cloths at the last one!

I was outside for about 5 hours yesterday at a friend's barbque. I think the heat and humidity was too much. I woke up with a head ache and then fell asleep on the couch for 2 hours. I am not an outside person I guess.

Just 2 miles this morning but I ran most of it:) I did run up every hill and if I felt the need to walk, it was only downhill. Phew. Then, about 2.2 miles walking around town this afternoon/evening. Now, I am baking grain-free bread for the week. It is yummy. I am having an easier time now being grain free and no added sugar. I have a great cookbook, "Against All Grain" that has some fabulous recipes and I have found several on line recipes as well. Even my parents liked the grain free, sugar free cookies!
Happy Sunday Rooks

Amen Monty!!! We are always learning, and can offer our past experience to our team as well!

Did both of my goals today - Billy Blanks was tough as I haven't really done much strength training in the past long while, but it got done::) Tomorrow my plan is to do the P90X plyo workout, a rrwalk, and going downtown for a fun roller-blade along the lake.

Nera, I get it sweetie, let's try to help each other out of this rut:):)

Hugs and love,

My "Class Team" has finally gone inactive due to Team Members moving on so I'm focusing more time on leading my 5K run team, my local groups, and running which has helped me become better over the last 4 years!

People ask me why I'm still with the "Rookie Running Group" & I tell them I am always learning. I also want to pay it forward! It just gets better every day!

No outside exercise today. It is currently 95 F and very humid, dew point is 69. It is just brutal. Company left this morning, I went to the dentist, had to find a new one, to be told that my tooth hurts because the bone is infected. Sigh. I go to an endodontist next week to see what can be done to try to save the tooth. Already had a root canal so it might have to be pulled. If that is the case, an implant would be in my future as the tooth is in the front. Sheesh.

Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

Trish - I might need to break out my TaeBo!

Went out for a run anyway and ended up doing 4 miles. No water fountains available in my town! They are all broken and the only one that works was locked behind a gate emoticon I ran in that direction and I was so happy that I get to finally drink but then nearly broke out in tears if I had any fluids left in me emoticon

Hey all!
Missy was in a soccer goalie camp today, and she did AWESOME!! Tomorrow Monkey is heading out camping with my sis.

I had a date with Billy Blanks that I actually kept today, so an hour of tae bo under my belt....it was tough, but I did it...too many parts were jiggly, so we need t keep moving forwards:):)

Nice to see you Carrie - I miss you sooooooo much!!!

Gotta fly, at the soccer pitch by 7:30 AM...

Hugs and love,
Trish

I headed out this morning for about 2.5 miles. It was a bit humid but it felt wonderful anyway!! DId some "retail therapy" today. I bought new caps for my fuel belt water bottles, they don't fit so I must bring them back. Sigh.

Hello everyone!
Who's running this week? I live in the Midwest and it will be a scorching 104F today! I guess no outside runs for me tonight. Will see.
Maybe I will do PiYo or ST instead.

We have returned to our home marina. There was a bit of fog today but there was nothing to hit 8 miles out to sea:) The sun did come out just in time for us to navigate the river and get tied up. Phew.

Carrie - I know that you can do this! We'll be behind you all the way. Great job on that 8 miler!
Hope everyone is doing great!

Had a great active weekend, and now I am getting ready to hunker down for the work week.
Hot weather coming my way this week, so I still don't know how I am going to fit my runs. I am scheduled to run 6 - 5 - 6 miles during the week emoticon Might need to push them to next week.

Hi all!
After weeks of denial and excuses, I am acknowledging that I put on a few pounds. Time to get back to tracking and cleaning up my diet. My tight clothes busted my excuses.
I was in a wedding over the weekend, and while I let myself get lazy with my eating (lots of donuts), I did manage to run 8 miles on Saturday morning before the wedding.

Here we go!

Hey all,
Home from camp...feeling pretty good. This week is my get it done one. Missy has soccer goalie camp this week from 8:30 - noon....I decided to work out while she is learning, so 5 days of a couple hours per day should be GREAT!!!

SOOOO tired! Tried to sleep in the van, but I am well over 40, and need a softer place to fall...lol:) Ended up in my sis's place with a foamy, good enough for a few hours of shut-eye.

Hope you all had an AMAZING weekend:):)

Hugs and love,
Trish

I am sad that our sailing trip (this one) will end tomorrow. But, I am happy that SIL will be leaving soon. She has no personality and just sits on her butt, reading and eating. If she gets a snack, drink or makes lunch, its only for her. Doesn't ask if anyone else wants anything. As my Dad would say, they streets after people like that "One Way".
I will be glad to get back to running on a regular basis. Hard to run when you are at sea:)

Hey all,
Fire isn't out, but it is more contained today:):) The best news was the weather...it wasn't 40 plus with winds (104), but more like 33 with winds (99.4)...makes a difference on a fire line!!!

Hope you are all doing well!!

Hugs and love,
Trish

Set sail this morning, made our way through Wood's Hole and are now swinging on a mooring at Martha's Vineyard. It is beautiful! No run as I did not go ashore today but I did swim in the ocean and kayak:) More of the same tomorrow.
