No rain this afternoon, so a hot and soggy 3 miles around the neighborhood. Lots of baby squirrels knocked out of nests who didn't make it, some dead grass snakes, some toads, and loads of branches. We had quite a lot of wind!

When I look at pictures from the area just outside my subdivision, I'm so grateful that I'm dry.

The water came halfway up the yard to the house, but didn't get in. Folks on the other side of the street were without power, but I was OK. The worst of it was the noise during the night - unending thunder and wind.

We were told not to go into work yesterday due to flooding so worked from home.
DD got caught in the flooding and spent the night in her car in a parking lot. She didn't get home until 2 pm yesterday, when the flooding had receded enough for her to find a way home through the flooding.

A number of my friends have water in their houses and have lost one or more vehicles. I can't imagine what Wimberley is like, I heard that loss of houses is in the hundreds. Loss as in the house floated away or came down completely.

And today the storms have started again.

Crazy weather.

Jean, your life does sound very very good. Glad you are enjoying it!

Hello, Everyone.

We have had a crazy weather month here in central Texas. Almost constant rain, much of it big storms. Tornadoes sighted last Saturday and yesterday in the area, although fortunately my neighborhood was spared most of the serious wind. Still lots of bad flooding, trees down, etc., from San Antonio to Dallas and points east. I see on the news this morning that Houston is currently under water, with rescues going on. There is a sad story on the local news about a family on vacation, staying in a house on the Blanco river near Wimberley. It was swept off its foundations and carried down the river. So far, only the father/husband has been found. The mother/wife and children are presumed drowned. At times the rain fall rate was 5 to 6 inches per hour. It is easy to under appreciate the power of water.

The weather has disrupted my return to running every day. I did get out yesterday before the storms moved in. Needless to say, it was very, very humid.

The only positive out of all this is that the rain is finally falling in the water shed for the hill country lakes and Lake Travis is up over ten feet and at 60 something percent capacity. Not long ago, it was at 34 percent or there abouts. But the swiftness of this rise caught many by surprise and there are a lot of boats/dock etc that were on dry land last week, far from the water, that are now floating free on the lake. Lots of debris.

My trainer was in Florida on vacation. He came home to find that his house had been without power for two days. He has salt water tanks and without power to keep the water circulating, it drains out. He said that all of his coral is dead.

And a shout out to Dee in Houston -- hope you are OK!

Good Morning...

This weekend gave me a taste of what retirement is like. I had to keep reminding myself I have to go back to work today! It's a bit of a struggle to face this last six days of school (the kids get out June 2nd)! I can work as late as June 12th and it'll depend who they get to take my place and how much training is needed. I think they are interviewing this week. I have all my paperwork for the retirement fund done and ready to mail off. It's getting real now!

Was hoping to run on a prairie path I used to always run on yesterday, but the skies opened up and dumped on us. Never made it out....hoping this afternoon but the forecast calls for more! After that...some sunny skies. I'd really like to get out this afternoon or early evening as it's swim and bike tomorrow.



This is the prairie running path. Envious of this woman... I took it while doing a photo shoot at the praise during "the golden hour" and got some great shots of prairie grasses and a most beautiful blue sky. I bopped myself on the head b/c I knew I had to run that day (and did later on) and wondered...duh....why didn't I wear my running clothes and then just run on this path afterwards? I miss this place! And it's only a mile away! The smell of the prairie grasses is intoxicating. I am blessed to live in an area that has built many, many, bike and running paths.

Happy Trails and have a great week!
Lynn

Good Morning!! Happy Tuesday. I hope everyone had a Wonderful Holiday..

The weather was so nice.. I did spend time outside doing yard work and work in my Garden.

Enjoying my coffee and will do a warm up Cardio before pushing out the door for a 5-6 mile run. It is taper week so I will be enjoying shorter runs. I never followed a training schedule before and really like it. My friends and I use to run 6 miles every day and then a long run on the weekend. June 6th is my last Spring Race and won't have another one until September. Hopefully June, I will do just 3 mile maintenance runs and pick training back up July 1..

SB, I sure miss FL living and my pool. My friends and I still ran in the summer around 5-6 am but after that was living in the pool..

Wishing all a great day!

Hi everyone.....

No excuses....just not sparking as much as I used to.
Still on the lookout for new furniture but so far what I wanted will not fit. So must adjust....

I have been trying to stay on track with eating. I love this time of year in Florida. The pool is perfect. Going to the ocean is glorious and then eating outside near the water with a cold beer is a near perfect life for me.

This week....

Ran 3xs
Walked 2xs
ST 2xs
Steam Cleaned Carpet 1x
Card parties 2xs
Furniture shopping 3xs

Life continues to be very, very good!

emoticon Good Morning!

Yesterday I did get out for a 4.55 mile run. Two driveways down at the end of my run, I heard thunder. As soon as I got in and sat down the sky opened up. Very heavy rain which cooled down the temps. I must admit, this cooler weather is feeling pretty good. We were at 90 degrees prior to this storm.

Temps will be in the low 50's every morning during the holiday weekend so I do plan to get out early for my long 12 mile run either Sat or Sunday.

Wishing all a Wonderful Holiday Weekend..

Ran a 3.9 loop last night... so nice in Central OH...it was 59 degrees! Perfect run weather. Since a shorter distance didn't really use official intervals except to hydrate every mile. Usually when I stop to hydrate, I walk about .2 miles. Works well for the short distances..(for me about anything less than 5 miles).

DD bought her first house today. Memorial weekend will probably be helping her paint, cut grass, etc. She has next week to paint, clean, etc and then moves the following weekend. I will try to get a few runs in before going over to the new house. She is about 2 miles away - both a blessing to be so close and maybe not :-)

I am down about 5 pounds from last year but really would like to lose 10 more...think it would be ideal running weight..

Have a great day! Ann

Steevie... Welcome back and best wishes on your FM training. I have no advise to offer as I've yet to accomplish that distance. Perhaps one day. . .

Ann...Welcome back as well. So sorry to hear about your dad! I've lost both my parents to cancer and understand that journey. Congrats to daughters, however. One with a baby on the way and the other a wedding? WOW...You HAVE had a busy year...and it's not even half over yet! You'll need that marathon training just as an outlet for all your involved in! You are going to love being a grandparent! You'll be over the moon with that baby!

Sharon....WTG on the recovery. I am slowly recovering as well. Swam 2,000 yards this AM and spent some time in the hot tub and feeling pretty good right now. It was rough Mon and Tue. Last November's HM I recovered VERY fast....For some odd reason, this is a slow one. Go figure! I may cycle after work and I will hopefully resume running tomorrow and then a 6 miler on the weekend.

Hi to Jean and Dee!

Have a great Wednesday!
Lynn

Good Morning!! Happy Super Tuesday!!

Welcome back Ann and StevieBee..

Ann, I hope you are now fully recovered and wishing you the best on your Half Marathon Training.

StevieBee, is that the Air force Marathon in Virginia? Wishing you the best on your first Full Marathon! It was so nice meeting you last month at the Rock N Roll!!

Thanks Lynn. I am really looking forward in this 3rd Half Marathon in June. Race 13.1 Raleigh. The coarse is on the Greenways and wraps around Shelley Lake. My first house back up to this lake and I am so familiar with the coarse. Just love it.. This 3rd Half will be my qualifying race for the Half Fanatics Running Group.. 3 in less than 90 days.

We get crazy weather here too usually a day or two after you Lynn. Today's high will reach 90 degrees and muggy. Tomorrow cool down.

Dee, when I lived in Tampa Bay area, our summer running was at 5 am to beat the heat. It would be 70 degrees and muggy. So humid I could never put a comb through my hair..

Today I did a recovery run of 6.5 miles and walked remainder. Total 7.03 miles. I felt real good but I always to a warm up cardio before I push out the door. I could really feel some tight muscles. Thursday I plan to do a 3-4 mile and this weekend 10 - 12 miles. Then back to taper.

Wishing all a great day!! Happy Trails!!

Hi All!

It has been months since I last posted and I really enjoy this team.

In January, my Achilles tendon was really giving me problems so rested it until mid February. Doctors said it was ok - scars from surgery 2 years ago but not doing any worse damage. Started running with my orthotics...much better but hard to get a shoe that it will fit. Then on Valentine's Day my dad went to the hospital and discovered he had advanced stage prostate cancer - actually 11.5 pound tumor... Long story short, he passed away May 7th at 93 years old. We had a baby shower for my middle daughter who is now 35 weeks pregnant (after 2 miscarriages) - she is due June 23rd and lives in CO while I live in OH. My oldest daughter getting married in September so have had engagement pictures, cake testings, a bridal shower scheduled, etc. It has been a very busy year.

I did run a half marathon in May but it was pretty rough - did not have enough training under my belt and went out too fast the first 3 miles. My watch didn't work at first and my pace group was not in the correct corral... I finished but that's about all you can say. But I learned a lot from that HM...have always said you learn more from your mistakes than your successes...

Started training for another HM in end of August and may try for a full marathon in Oct - depends on how training goes with all the family activities.

And oh I got my Golden Buckeye Card (a discount card from state of OH when you turn 60) since I turn 60 on Saturday. I would like to do one FM in my 60's.

Hope all is well with all....

Ann

I haven't been on this group for a few months now & I've really missed it. Last week, I started training for my first Full Marathon. In September, I will be doing the Air Force Marathon. I'm a little anxious and excited at the same time, just like I was when I did my first Half Marathon. If any of you have any tips you want to share, please do so, because I'm a great student. emoticon

CONGRATULATIONS, Sharon! Wow..another one in three weeks. You rock! JG and his wife did back to back weekend half marathons a few months ago. Doable with his plans even at their age if one keeps up with training and does the walk run walk method. But a break is needed now and then, so good for you!

DEE....It was warm here but now we are having a cool wether break. It was really muggy during the race. Later that day, the winds picked up and the humidity dropped killing our chances of thunderstorms (OK by me). Now tomorrow is forecasted to be 55 degrees for a high! Crazy! That is when I plan to do my first post HM run...a slow jog to get back into the groove.

My legs are still trashed, which surprises me. Last November's post half, I felt pretty good and figured now that I have a few HMs under my belt, these recoveries are going to be much better. Not this time! My quads are pretty sore and tight. Doing some shorter walks and stretches and it is a little better each day, but slow recovering. Strange.... I feel great after just walking 25 yards and for a period after the walk. So....keep moving is the trick. Tomorrow I swim and that should really be the icing on the cake. Plan to bike, if it doesn't rain, this afternoon....cycling will help as well.

Enjoy Tuesday!

Congratulations on your Half Marathon yesterday, Lynn. You did great!!

Thank you all for Your Encouraging Comments and Support! It really does help, especially with Race Anxiety.

Yesterday I completed my 2nd HM for 2015 and now trying to plan out my training for 3rd on 6/6. Only three weeks away. Not sure yet how to approach this and not over train.. After this I will have a bit of a break and will probably just do 3 mile runs 3 days a week for the month of June and then start training again for Septembers Half..

Wishing all a Wonderful Week!

Well done, Lynn.
I love the idea of the donated medals. And it must be so motivating for the kids.
Your tri sounds challenging.

One of these days I need to rehabilitate my bike and make it usable again.

Thanks... Little Charlie just did her first kid run this weekend, the one she practiced for when I was there a few weekends ago. She got a medal and LOVES it. They are donated medals from other nearby races that were leftover, so it says Lincoln Marathon/Half Marathon on it and it looks like a penny with Lincoln on it (They live in Springfield, IL where Lincoln had his law practice before becoming president). Just so happens that is a race I would really like to do! Maybe next March...we will see. Now that I will be retired, I can do such things any time of the year. :D

Just finished Half Marathon #5. So glad to say, I did not bonk for the first tie ever! My feet were tired and sore b/c I need new shoes, but my aerobic ability was unfazed. I did have to slow it down because the air was like soup! Humidity is a big negative for a heavy sweater like me. I drank a lot and forced myself to down Gatorade (just chased it with water) at each and every water station, walking through it so as to not waste any of it. I also took in a GU every 3rd mile and every mile I took one Honey Stinger. I brought a bottle of water on my belt and drank in between. It all worked! I was SO happy! So....now if I can lose some weight, build my leg muscles and make sure my shoes aren't 5-6 months old by race day, I think I could make some decent progress on my half marathons. :D

Legs are starting to feel better already and I'm happy that the more half marathons you do, the less time it takes to recover!

Next race up: Iron Abe.... It's not an ironman or even a half ironman. It's the Olympic distance of: 1500 yard swim (just shy of a mile), 24.8 mile bike, and a 10K... That won't be until July 25 and is also in Springfield IL (hence the "Abe" name in the race). Doing this race with a few of my swim buddies. Open water swim in a big lake. Will stay with the grandkid and her parents. Spooky.....Haven't done this distance in 3 years!

Happy rest of the weekend....

Lynn

DEE/MONTY: Indeed, I am looking so forward to this retirement, especially when I read the fun CATHERINE and JEAN is having with it! Just to train at 9 AM instead of after school when I'm so tired, or super early on a weekday, etc. I also am into photography and look forward to spending more time doing that as it has really taken a backseat to everything else.

Have a Half Marathon this Sunday and the weather isn't looking too good. 80% chance of rain that day, but they aren't saying exactly when. Severe weather on tap, though most of the time, that is in the afternoon. 84 for a high but that's later. Upper 60s in the AM but if rain is present, could be humid. I need to run after work today. I was not feeling well yesterday and extremely tired. This whole training period has been a battle to get out and train with my schedule. The time was tight, but also, low energy level as I had committed to too much stuff. Too old for that! Ha.... So I'm not expecting that it will be the greatest of races, but hoping I can finish in a reasonable time. Also hoping my foot holds out. When I ran on the beach at Anna Maria Island last month, something had happened to my foot (from an uneven or too soft of a surface? Not sure). I thought I had overcome that quickly, but it occasionally crops up, especially after about 6 or 8 miles. I'd have to stop and stretch it out every 5 min or so on the last long distance run.

Happy Thursday.... Photo of granddaughter (almost 3 yrs old) having a good laugh. emoticon

Sharon, it's so good to see you full back into your running!

Jean, you too! I know you were having issues. Now both you and your husband have made the podium!

Retirement? I was ready at 58 when I moved down here to the Tampa Bay area! After being with my agency for 32 years of which I spent 25 years in the Pentagon, my journey really began!! Best decision of my life! Now I'm active in the City of Dunedin, and volunteer at Gianna's school where I was just recognized for my support to the 3rd Grade! (That alone is worth every medal I have!) I was also an Assistant Coach for Gianna's school Run Club.They've asked me to come back next year. I am busier more than ever and loving it! I'm also Event Lead for Dunedin Relay for Life
emoticon

I'll be 65 on May 25. USA Triathlon already had me racing in the 65-69 Age Group for St Anthony's Triathlon last month. But I just did my last run race in the 60-64 Age Group this past Saturday Saturday. It was a bit sad as I have been in this AG since I started running at 60! It still amazes me that I can call myself a runner now.
emoticon

And on that note, I started with a Garmin 305, went to the 310XT, and will upgrade to the Vivofit next. My Sponsor showed me hers and it has everything I need for Triathlons, including being waterproof! Yeah, I'll work my present HR strap with it as well.
emoticon

Training? On Monday, I swam a half mile training pool swim with a nice easy pace, focusing on form and breathing. On Tuesday evening, I followed it with a half mile swim in the Gulf with a 2-3 foot chop. I worked the incoming waves, got out leaving strong, and confident, and jogged a quarter mile in the sand, back to the starting point.
Last night, I ran with my Safety Harbor Athletic Club, (through the streets of Safety Harbor and Philippe Park) doing a 4 mile run just to see how my hamstring is doing. ( I tweaked it coming into Saturday's Finish Chute.) Good times with minimal pain.

Just warming up for 65!

Good Morning!

One day I also would love to do that race in Atlanta! Wouldn't that be great, if we could all meet down there one year??

I actually got out yesterday for my 5 mile run. I was thinking of only doing 1-2 miles and go out this morning but once out, I was unstoppable. The plumber got here around 2:30, which worked out great with my schedule. Sink is unclogged and had to have a few old things replaced. He even looked at the drain in my freezer and unclogged that, no charge. I am so grateful, because to have another appliance guy come out would have been another $100.

Today is a light fitness day. I will do some Express Cardio to get my heart rate going and then some Core & More. Looks like my weight is finally back to downward trend. I stopped taking pain meds. I hate that meds can cause weight gain...

My 2nd Half Marathon for 2015 is Sunday and I am starting to get race anxiety.. Especially with weather predictions this weekend, thunder storms.

Wishing all a Great Day!! So hard to believe we are getting so close to Summer.

June, I did sign up but it turns out that I'm going to have to make this one virtual as well: I have to be in St. Louis for my grandson's Bar Mitzvah that weekend. I did the virtual one this past year. Maybe one of these days.....

Back to an actual office today: we moved so I worked from home for two days. I hope I can find the way after 25 years at the other location (two employers.)

Since I was at home I ran yesterday morning. And then the deluge started. It continued on and off all night. Not sure what to expect today.

Dee, I noticed you have signed up for the Jeff Galloway Atlanta HM in December 2015

One day I hope to run this race in Atlanta. This year I did the 2 inaugural races, the 5k Garmin documented and the HM by running the Fort Langley Historic Half race and using the race results for the virtual participation that Jeff offers to his races. The actual races were Dec 12, 2014 and virtual runs were accepted until March 31, 2015. I received the 5k medal and shirt a few months ago, today I received the HM medal and shirt

Catherine, my fitbit reads my HR off my wrist, I was comparing this reading to the chest HR monitor. If your vivo and garmin use the same chest band HRM, I expect the numbers should be the same. Expectations are not always reality, it would be interesting to check it out.

I am running next on Tuesday, today I stayed home, I fed the calves this morning, the kids made me and DH brunch of eggs benny and crepes with berries and whipped cream, mmmm, and in the afternoon I went for a walk by the river with DS and Frida our dog. Fitbit gave me 150 active minutes and 14,000 steps so far today.

SB, I knew you would love Safety Harbor.
I felt so spoiled living there for over 20 years..
Small town feel right on the Bay. I use to walk out my door to go for my run
along the Bay.. And so many Parks. I hope you had a Great Race..

I have been in Taper mode and really looking forward to my next Half in 1 week.

Hi June! The Vivofit is made by Garmin and I use the HR strap that came with my Forerunner. So I assume the HR measurements are the same, but I haven't actually checked it by wearing both devices at the same time. I can say that during the run today my HR behaved as I expected.

Happy Mother's Day !!

Seabreeze, awesome race for you and DH and a wholesome, beautiful photo of you both, congratulations.

Sharon, its nice to have home-grown fresh produce. I haven't planted my garden yet, but do enjoy having fresh salads all summer and the other vegetables as they are ready. Your training plan looks great.

Lynn and Sharon, happy training for your upcoming HM.

Dee, so sorry about your cat. Wow, pretty warm weather you are running in, I live in a more temperate place so, don't have to deal with that very often. I have a fitbit too and didn't notice a change in the fitbit active minutes. When did it change and did fitbit notify you it was going to happen? That is not right you get no minutes for runs.

Catherine, your cat is amazing. Getting back into running is an art. How does your Vivofit HR compare to your Garmin HRM? I find my fitbit HR displays a lower HR than my Garmin HRM. For running, I pretty much don't use it much any more as I know how my comfort relates to my HR, but also, I am not training for a time goal when running, so have been running 3x weekly for 30 minutes. I was going for a 10k under 60min this year, but now I am going for form and rebuilding my strength. So basically, low HR training this year.

Hello, Everyone. Happy Mother's Day!

I have finally gotten back to running. My plan is to run 30 minutes (almost every day) at a low heart rate to get my aerobic base reestablished. Then gradually increase the time per day. I will do this until I am ready to start my training plan for the California Marathon, probably early August (the race is the first weekend in December).

So Thursday was my first run. I was a little nervous because I was afraid I would find I had a long ways to go to get back. But I felt pretty good. I have been keeping up with my strength training, so my legs still feel pretty good. Aerobically I could tell that I wasn't ready to go long distances, but 30 minutes felt good.

Friday and today I ran in the neighborhood. I didn't want to take the time to go to the flatter routes where I normally run when I'm running more than 30 minutes. So I just went to a "flattish" street about 10 minutes away from home and did loops. This wasn't as flat as it seemed when driving on it -- rolling hills the entire distance but not too bad. I figure that rolling terrain is good for me and since I'm using my heart rate to determine when to walk vs run, I won't overdo.

Since my Vivofit has a HR tracker, I just used that. Which eliminated entirely the ability (or temptation) to look at either pace or distance. My goal was to keep the heart rate in zone 2, so when it goes higher than 125, I walk and when it drops to 120 I run again. It has been very humid, but at least not sunny. It actually rained briefly both Friday and today.

LYNN: We bought our bedroom set about the same time, but I have no desire right now to change that.

DEE: I hear you. My Garmin has been acting up and just stops in the middle of a run (several times). I feel like if it stops, I should too. LOL

SHARON: I love Safety Harbor!!!!

CATHERINE: Hi!!

*****

Ran the 10K yesterday. DH came in first in his age group (out of 1) and he was the oldest runner in the race. I came in 2nd in my age group (out of 2). It was such a beautiful location.



It was a good course (along Tampa Bay) - almost all in the shade. Lots of volunteers and breakfast pizza at finish line.

I have been on track with eating and hope to see lower numbers on scale soon.

I was born in 54, so I guess they moved 65 now to 66 for my age. I was unaware of this change. Thanks all for letting me know all. But, you can still take social security early at 62? I need to read up on all of this

I can't really go back to work caring for my mother and I only pray she lives another 10 years.

Thanks again!

Hello, Everyone!

Sharon, what has changed in SS is what they call "full retirement age," which is the age at which a person may first becomes entitled to full or unreduced retirement benefits.. But it isn't 70 and it depends on your age. Here's what they say:

"Full retirement age (also called "normal retirement age") had been 65 for many years. However, beginning with people born in 1938 or later, that age gradually increases until it reaches 67 for people born after 1959."

You can still retire "early" (once you reach 62). Your benefits are just reduced since you will be collecting them over a longer period.

"No matter what your full retirement age (also called "normal retirement age") is, you may start receiving benefits as early as age 62 or as late as age 70."

That may be where you got the 70 number -- you have to start collecting at 70, you can't delay any longer than that. (Some people delay because the benefits increase if you don't collect them. Of course, you are foregoing them in the meantime, so it is an interesting financial planning analysis).

I've been collecting since I turned 62 because I was already retired by then. My monthly check is a little lower than it would have been had I waited 4 years, but I'd rather have the money while I was young(er). DH waited until he was 66 (this year) because he is still working, so most of the benefits would have been lost. 66 is his full retirement age, so he can start collecting, even though he is not actually retired. Interesting, isn't it.

Good afternoon!

I completed a 8 mile run but my Garmin only recorded 7 miles. I think I lost satellite in this one area, same as last time. I decided to do my taper long run today since it appears we will have tropical depression around the weekend.

Oh, how I would love to retire. I did stop working to care for elder mother but still have a few years for SS to kick in. I guess they moved the age to 66 or 70 now?? I always thought that was not going to be touched.. Oh well..

Enjoy your day!!

Lynn, I read your comments on retirement with envy.
I'd thought I wanted to work until 70 but mentally I'm done. Part of me thinks I'm due for a big change but I don't know what.

A miserable 3 miles yesterday, and once again the Fitbit registered NO active minutes. It works - I get the steps and calorie burn, but no credit for active exercise. It's part of their new changes, not anything wrong with my Fitbit. But frankly, if a 65 year old runs 3 miles in 86 degree weather, there is some exertion going on that's deserving of the word active. I guess it's time to give the Fitbit the same importance as the scale - out!

Pretty cat, Catherine... ! I miss having a kitty kat. I think they are hilarious how they "own the house" and allow YOU to stay in it, sleep on top of freshly folded, clean laundry as though you purposefully made them a bed, how a simple piece of string can entertain them for hours, etc...and....their easy care! My one son is very allergic to cats that brings him to asthma attacks, so looks like we will not be having any anymore. :(

JEAN: I guess you are more than deserving of new furniture for going that long. About the only thing we have left from the 80s is our bedroom set which is still the same one we bought at the time we were married. It's going on 36 years of marriage, so I'd say we are due...but I guess we are cheap as no one but us sees it. Would rather get the living room furniture. :)

SHARON: It's definitely nice to take some time off of the serious running and I'm looking forward to that! After the half, I'll be cutting down but not too far. I will need to maintain 10K race status until the July 25th triathlon is over. From there, I work back up to the half marathon race status for the November half here in town. Early Nov. at least. And then, I'll cut way back during the holidays but increase other stuff like indoor cycling for a change of pace and to burn off some holiday calories. Planning on a 10 mile race the following late May. Lord willing that I should be in good health...of course! :D Never taking that for granted!

3-4 weeks is the countdown to retirement now. Have the retirement party for the three of us who are retiring and looking forward to that sort of.... Not a fan of being the center of attention, but always fun to have fun with the co workers. Working with young students doesn't give us any time to socialize, that is for sure. Plus, my son and granddaughter will be coming in on Friday (Mommy has to go to court for her para-legal job), so that'll be fun.

Have a lovely rest of the week! :D

Good Morning....

CATHERINE: What a beautiful and smart kitty!!!

SHARON: Your garden sounds wonderful.....

Me..... nothin too much

I am repainting a lazy susan that goes on our outside table. It will be acceptable when I am done, but nothing awesome looking.

Thinking about buying new livingroom furniture. We bought ours in 1980.... do you think it is time?

DH and I came in 1st at bridge on Sunday night. Two weeks before we came in last. We both like variety!!

Good Morning!! Happy Wednesday!!

Yesterday I ran 6.5 miles and am feeling great. I sure do love Tapering.

Today I will be meeting my SIS at Shelley Lake for a 4 mile walk, maybe 6. Our first home backed up to this lake and that is the place I first started running after my son was born 25 years ago. Lots of history. My June and September Half Marathons coarse is on part of that trail. After June Half Marathon I plan to take a Summer Break from Training and decrease my mileage to maybe 3-4 mile runs before starting back up for September Half.

Last night we enjoyed a wonderful salad using all the variety lettuces grown from my Organic Garden. I have to take one grapevine back to Lowes. Looks dead.. The other one is doing great. I have so many Landscaping projects I want to do including creating a side walk from mothers handicap ramp to the driveway.

Wishing all a Great Day and Happy Trails! I know when I lived in Tampa Bay our Racing Season is basically over at the end of February because it just gets too hot so now I am loving it here in NC where the temps are so perfect right now. I never did late Spring Races before and am loving it!!

Here is the queen of the house. She is definitely a tough old bird, as they say. That is her beloved Heat Dish behind her. When she wants it turned on, she butts her head against it.

I am really enjoying NOT running long runs. LOL. And my feet are not giving me any problems either, so I may increase my weekly running time by another 60 minutes. I will not be going back to the HM distance anytime soon though.

My life is the same....
nothing new or interesting....

Have a 10K on Saturday.
Playing pinochle today.
Have a bridge party Saturday evening.

We went to see Age of Adeline and both of us really liked it.

Wow, Catherine, you really worked with your cat! But I know if they have a will to make it, they do. Poor Hinge was feral for half her life, so reaching 14 is actually a pretty good life. I still hear her in the house and outside. It's weird.

A sweaty short run yesterday; and I hate what they've done to Fitbit. They've changed how they calculate active minutes. According to them I can run 3 miles and not record a single active minute. So demoralizing. After all, I got the thing to motivate me. LOL.

Hello, Everyone.

Wow! April really got away from me. Where did it go? Lots of concerts every weekend and other "year end" (i.e. before everyone leaves town for the summer) activities. We don't leave, of course, but lots do.

A big storm last week took down some trees in central Austin, including one that fell on the Austin Chamber Music offices. Some pretty dramatic pictures of tree branches sticking through the ceiling. Fortunately, it was over night so no one was hurt and everyone had taken their computers home. The printer is toast and anything else that was on the floor was soaked. But the records in filing cabinets were ok and so not much property loss. We don't own the building, just lease space, so our biggest hassle was having to quickly find temporary quarters elsewhere while the roof gets repaired. This is a busy time of year with a fund raiser coming up on 17 May and a three week summer festival in July. But alternative space was found and the current landlord won't charge us for the time we are out of the building, so the rent was a wash. That's a good thing since small arts organizations certainly don't have a lot of float in the cash flow.

Dee, I'm so sorry to hear about your cat. I know how hard it is, even if they are older and have lived good lives. My "old lady" (20+ years) developed respiratory congestion a few weeks ago. This has happened before and we have a nebulizer to help treat it. But this time, her appetite also started going down hill. I assumed the two were connected, but now I think there was more to it than that. At any rate, she was still eating, although not as much. And then last week, just a few days before a scheduled trip to Houston on Thursday to see the opera (Die Valkure -- it was great), she stopped eating altogether. DH started feeding her with a syringe, and she was willing to eat if you put it in her mouth. So she was still getting some calories, but while we were gone, the cat sitter wasn't able to feed her and so I scheduled a trip to the vet for Friday evening after we got home. For one thing, I was worried that the sinus issues might be connected to a gum or tooth infection (I had that happen to an older cat once).

Fortunately, her teeth we OK (just a lot of plaque :-). The vet suspected that her problems were likely stemming (in addition to the respiratory congestion) from her IBD and kidney disease. She was already on palliative therapies for those, i.e. fluids, prednisone, pepsid, and he suggested that we trying increasing the dosage for each and added an additional anti-nausea tablet. I'm happy to say that this protocol did the trick. She is eating again and seems to feel much better and her behavior is back to normal. It's hard to walk the line with older animals like this between enough and too much. But as long as she is not in pain and seems alert and happy (and eats!) I'm willing to give her fluids more frequently and a little more pepsid and predinose. She was actually on very low doses of these, so the the increases are not into the "heroic" stage yet.

Sorry to go on so long, but this is what has been occupying me recently. I am still making bread, too. Need to get back to regular running. I don't need to start a training plan until August, but I'd like to work on getting my base back before I start serious training.

Good Morning....

Sharon....My half is on May 17th as well. Best wishes to you! I trained but not as much as I'd like. I did run 15 yesterday for my last LSD run and trashed my legs up pretty good. An old injury flared up at about mile 11 or 12 just mildly, but had to stop a few times to stretch it out. Hope that doesn't happen on race day. So back to my foot exercises!

Did a nice 1500 yard swim this AM and my legs feel better, though still a tad tired. I signed up for a July 25th Olympic Triathlon, so gotta get busy training. Fortunately, I've been running and cycling....swimming was slacking off, so trying to be more consistent.

Have a great training week all....

Lynn

First run of training season done. A beautiful morning for it Saturday.

Then breakfast and planning meeting with the run group. But the highlight is the 'award' I received. It is traditional in our group that with the first 26 miler a person runs comes a huge medal. Last year when my two running friends finished their first 26 miler, they received one. I happened to mention that I wish I'd had something like that for my first. Well, yesterday I got it: a hubcap decorated with all kinds of bling! It will be displayed in my office.

Organic lettuce sounds lovely, Sharon, In my garden, there's so much shade I can no longer grow anything. And so I spent about five hours spread over two days cutting tree branches and trimming bushes. I'm so sore I can hardly walk.

SB, retirement is starting to sound really tempting. If it weren't for financial consideration, I'd walk out the door today. There are just so many things I'd enjoy doing more than sitting at this desk being underutilized.

emoticon Good Morning!

I am enjoying my coffee emoticon reading my Spark and e-mails. It was a nice day yesterday so I spent time outdoors in my garden. emoticon I harvested some of my Organic Variety Lettuce and some Green Onions..

My eyes and sinuses are bothering me this morning so hopefully I will feel better as the day goes on.

I ran my 12 miler Saturday, last long run prior to my Half Marathon May 17th. Now to enjoy that taper.
I have my workouts to start up and hopefully will have time to go to Lowes later this afternoon.

Wishing all a Great Day!!

JEAN: You may have, I don't recall (telling me you love retirement). :D

Won't be long now....About a month. Last day is sketchy... Depends who I need to train and how much training they will need.

15 miler this weekend. Decided not to do the 17. Had to cut it down last long run to fit on a Friday afternoon before dark, so just went from 13 to 14....and will just go 14 to 15...16 tops. Beautiful weather on tap...perhaps on the warm side for me, but I'm not going to complain. Looking forward to easing off the long running workouts for a bit on the training. Especially during these last weeks of work which gets so busy anyway, let alone training someone during that time.

Had a nice swim this AM. 2400 yards of mostly lap swimming with a little bit of hodge podge mixed in.

Have a nice Friday! Wondering where the usual folks are... We are getting quiet on this team which is unusual.

DEE: So sorry to hear about your cat. :( That is always a difficult thing. Been there more times than I care to admit.

Have a good run today...

That is on my plate as well....to run this afternoon. Had a nice swim this AM after being off for a couple of weeks. Showed up Mon at 5 AM only to be turned away due to a lifeguard not showing up. That was frustrating. I have a 15 miler to do this weekend and then next weekend is a short 6 miler due to tapering...and then the race. Where do the weeks go?!?!?!

Have a good Wednesday!

I managed to get in a run in Boston the morning before the dance workshop started. Beautiful weather, but it tired me out for the rest of the weekend.

I had a great time, had some quality time with my brother and family, and my DD drove up from Philadelphia for the weekend too.

Got back yesterday to find my cat in worse shape than ever. The vet confirmed today that what we first thought might be asthma was a rapidly growing tumor.

I had to let her go this morning - I didn't want her to suffer the indignity of starving to death, which is what she was doing. I don't think she'd eaten since I left on Thursday.
Not the way I wanted to start the week. DD (the vet tech) couldn't stay - she sees enough euthanasia at work, and couldn't handle seeing her own pet. AFM, I'd always delegated that job to my ex. It was my turn. I'm devastated but glad I stayed with her.

SHARON: Thank goodness you are OK! I worry about getting hit on the bike but don't think about it AS much as when I'm running...though occasionally I do. We can never be too careful, but still...one never knows what a driver is going to do.

The AFM stands for, "As for me..." :)

JEAN: It was amazing her little legs could go that far without stopping! She seemed to enjoy it...but she was tired in terms of sleepiness later. It was a windy, cool day, so that knocks you out as well.

Today is my last interval day before the half. 12 X 1/2 mile. I'm tempted to just do it as I run a course rather than repeat the same half mile stretch. I do this from time to time to break up the monotony. I run a trail/course for half a mile warm up, then do half mile intervals along the course with 1-2 min solid walk break. Doing this after church today....Sunny, high of 53...nice run weather. SIL and MIL are visiting this afternoon, so it'll be a close call getting back by the time they are here.

Sooooooo ready for the retirement thing (5 more weeks). It has been very difficult to get this training in with work and everything else I do beyond work! The training for this Half did not go as well as I would have liked. But I am thankful to have been able to do what I did. Might not be a pretty time, but just a good time as in fun.... Doing this with a friend who has trained even less than me. She thinks she's walking the whole ordeal. But last fall, her and her hubby did not train and did a 2:15....while I trained and got a 2:47. LOL She is 13 years younger than me. I told them....imagine if you DID train...the two of them would be sub twos! They have four kids, so life is hectic for them even more so than for me.

Enjoy your Sunday!

CATHERINE....Hope all is well.... Missing you on here and hoping it's just because you are busy as a bee!

emoticon Just checking in! I have been a little out of it since Rock N Roll a couple of weeks ago. Everything is piling up on me including over 5000 e-mails.

SB, what is AFM? Is that a special marathon training?

I really appreciated all the advise on preparing for this past half marathon and recovery. I did take a full week off and then Tuesday I did a short recovery run. I was hit by a car, thank goodness I did not fall or get injured. The car was waiting to turn onto the main road and cut to short and I was hit on the passenger side. Thursday I went for a run and someone let me cross the bank drive and the car behind was stopped. Third car came up and almost slammed into both cars stopped allowing me to cross. I believe that driver was texting and not paying attention. I don't have my beautiful running trail that I had in Safety Harbor, FL along the Bay. And I have to run from neighborhood, to get out early and be back early. Since I care for my elder mother, I go out before anyone is awake.. Around here though, I do not dare run when it is dark..
I started reading my Jeff Galloway book, had no idea he was from Raleigh, NC and taught 4th grade. Small world...
Wishing all a wonderful weekend and for those running this week end! Happy Trails.
Monty, Have a wonderful time doing the St. Anthony's Tri... I think my friends brother does that every year..

date day..... DH bought a Groupon for a restaurant and so we are heading to a little tiki bar for a drink... then maybe a walk around St. Armand's Circle (big and busy touristy shopping district)... then to dinner. Should be a good day.

DEE and LYNN: I sure agree. Sure I would like to get faster, but, I have finally bridged the gap and now run for the health of it and if I ever get faster.... just a side affect.

Yesterday ran a lactate threshold run....
walk 3 min
easy slow run 10 min
3 x 12 minutes runs (nonstop) at my lactate threshold with 3:15 walk break in between

DEE: I guess we are REAL people with REAL lives and there is nothing wrong with that! I just told someone how, even though I think about time, whenever I think about why I run, time is not in that mix. It's all about health, exercise, new friendships, being outdoors and mostly...FUN! So, I think we can be too hard on ourselves sometimes and shouldn't beat ourselves up for it. The races give me goals to force me to keep moving. I actually enjoy the journey to the goal, more than the goal itself.

emoticon

That said... I really do need to do a run after work today. 56 and sunny...that's as good as it's going to get around here for a while. It was so cold yesterday, we actually had snowflakes! Crazy! Warmer today and very sunny!

Have a great day....May it be filled with a good run!

Lynn, you are doing way better than I am with training. This week is a bust: I had to move dancing to Monday, which is usually a run day. Tuesday I went to a yoga class. Today I hope to run but have to pack. Tomorrow I travel to Boston, and then I dance for four days. I get exercise, yes, but it's not running.

My training group set its schedule for the season, and unfortunately I won't get in a 26 miler prior to the Twin Cities Marathon. Not happy but that's OK, I've done that before. These days I'm just happy to finish a race, so I won't be concerned about time.

Good Morning...

JEAN: I don't use Spark's food/exercise log either. When I'm committed to tracking, I use "My Fitness Pal" which seems to have the best food data base of any other app I've tried so far. They seem to make it easier and easier to track with updates... But I've been off of it for a while and need to get back on it.

Life is getting super busy with May coming up which I always say rivals December. Retiring adds to the chaos with a retirement lunch and a retirement dinner. Not complaining as that is always a great thing....LOL....! The workload this time of year increases dramatically as well and I'll also be training my replacement at some point. All that in addition to the normal May Madness.

As for running....it's been a challenge to squeeze it in! May 17th is fast approaching which is when the half marathon is. Many weeks, I've only gotten in two runs! one short and the other long. It is what it is.....Hoping to get a run in tomorrow as it's not happening today like I'd like it to.

Administrative Asst. Appreciation today...so going to work early for a breakfast there...then the principal takes the other secretary and me out to lunch today. So food will be a main issue today!

Happy Running All.... Seems like most are recovering from injuries and that's a totally AWESOME thing! Stay healthy!

Lynn

P.S. Photo is of granddaughter, Charlie, training for her "Kid Fun Run" on May 16th. She is 7 weeks shy of age 3 and she ran .96 miles non-stop in 21 min. For short, little legs, not bad!

I downloaded an app called Lose It to my google chrome browser. Seems easier than logging onto Spark to track calories and exercise.

I just need to be committed and focused again. It was a long winter with so much company. I am ready now though....

hi DEE......

****

AFM.... still a little sore after Saturday's shoulder workout.... ran slow 90 minutes this morning.....trying to take better charge of what goes into my mouth.

so here is a question for you all....

Counting calories..... since my calories burned goes up and down throughout the week. Is it better to eat more on the days I burn more.... or is it better to just eat about the same (average) every day?
