Off to bed now - it's night-time here in the UK - and am looking forward to a run in the morning. I'm so lucky, I get to run by the sea every time :D

I really fancy a coffee now, but it's too late in the day - so it'll have to be water for me!

I got home really tired today - and it had been raining hard earlier, but I've been eating well, and I felt quite energetic (even tho I was tired) - so I put my kit on and went out for 25 mins - did about 10 mins jogging, the rest uphill walking - but it felt good.
One of these days I'll pull up a chair and find someone else in here - getting lonely!

Gawd! I'm so stiff today (around my thighs, hips and glutes) after doing some over-enthusiastic squats yesterday! I can hardly walk, let alone run! Not sure whether that'll teach me anything, but hey ho!

Well, I didn't run today - I was just so tired after a 24hr shift, and it was so cold, and I hadn't had enough to eat - all in all I decided to look after myself today - eat, rest, sleep - I can run tomorrow. I did get my rebounder out and bounced for a bit. Now where's that coffee?

Decaff today - still cold, but sun is out and I've got the laundry going. Work later. Looking forward to a run on Monday after work - and really fancy a 'meditation walk' which someone else mentioned............... maybe in the woods.......yes, I'll put that in my diary now
Have a great weekend!

This is my favourite cafe :D I've read the first three chapters - and am going to do what he suggests- read it through once, then go back and read it again - but I am already absorbing the principles - I long to be able to have loose, soft joints - what a blessed relief this will be :D

I got out for an early morning run on Sunday - I opened the curtains and saw that it wasn't raining - and the sky was bright - so I just had to get up and go! I had a brilliant run - all around the beaches - brilliant. It was freezing cold - I got warm running, but as soon as I stopped I started chilling down rapidly! Was glad to get my hands round a warm cuppa!

well, last week our highs were around 90 and our lows around 60 but a cold front came through yesterday and now our lows are around 35 and highs around 60, but it will warm up later this week. Spring, that time of year for extreme temperature changes/swings

Oh dear! No run for me today - the weather outside is evil! Grey, cold, rain being blown horizontal - and I've got to go to work for an overnighter - so I have my kit ready to run tomorrow afternoon/early evening when I get home (whatever the weather?)!

What's the weather like where you are?

Morning all! I had a great run yesterday - ventured onto the sand for the first time; it slowed me down, and I knew I had to go carefully to avoid straining my achilles with the extra work needed to push off from sand, but it felt so wonderful to be by the ocean. This might become a regular thing for me!

Anyway(s), hope you're feeling good today. I'm having tea with my porridge this morning - apple and walnuts on the top and a drizzle of agave. I've done my strength training this morning too - what's happening to me?!

I had to start work early today, came home to guests, then it was late, dark and raining - so I didn't get the run I was so looking forward to today. Planning to fit it in tomorrow afternoon.
Mine's a decaff Americano with soya milk please

Hi all, new here! I ran Reach the Beach this weekend in NH and had a GREAT TIME. We reached the beach in 27 hours- not too shabby! I ran 14.1 miles in total. Feeling great, but ready to get some non-carbs into the body. I've been sort of loading up to get through the race, but I need to cut it back now. Onwards and upwards!

First Race: 5k: 24:33
2nd race: 8k: 45:13 (2nd in my age group!)
3rd: Reach the Beach!: 8:23 average!
4th: Marathon Relay,, Oct. 26!
Any others I should try in New England? Ready for a Tri even sometime!

Gee Howdy!! I am thrilled to see this team has passed the 100 member mark!!!! YES!! Rock ON!
We are blessed to have 2 awesome team leaders!!!

We've been doing swimming & I have been sticking to my running & biking & continue to suppliment cardio w/ 1 hour weight training. I have introduced more free weights into my plan, and am almost into maintenance mode.

I continue to build on my music playlists...I have 37 on my RED iPod. Lately I am obsessed with salsa & Cuban stuff. Ay Dios Mio!!!!
My fav song now is "Cha Cha" by Chelo...here is you tube link...THis reggaeton star looks like Trouble w/ a capital T hee hee, but fun fun song!!!

Hoping you are all well. Rock on & Stay Tuned!!

Summers for us doesn't really change anything (except smaller commute times emoticon ). We both work the same hours as during the year and we don't have kids. We just had a vacation so I guess that's our big thing of the season.

sorry teammates...been mia for a few days. I think I have a cold or the flu. I called in sick yesterday and today I made a dr. appt for this afternoon. I can't breathe well or hear well. Bronchitis is going around here so I really hope I don't have that (I don't think so b/c I'm not really coughing)

Hi Everyone I wanted to jump in on the chocolate issue. I may be the only person in the world that is NOT crazy about chocolate. But, I do empathize with everyone;s chocolate issue. REMEMBER a moment on the hips may lead to a lifetime on the HIPS...

Hello ladies!!
Now as far as chocolate in the house you can use Crocket's method...Please share with us Crocket. I think it will help everyone with staying away from the chocolate....
We have candy at our house too. 2 boys...I tried the method my Mom used to use on us. She would buy ONLY the candy that she didn't like. Easter bunny is pretty darn smart huh?

Hello!!
Katy...I know what you mean with the weather. It really effects my mood. So, I try to listen to super motivational music...or at least with a great beat!!
Cruz I am sorry that your not feeling well. I am happy that you went to the doctor and you are resting.
Anne...I'm alittle jealous of your track. I would LOVE to have alittle eye candy to help me keep running! Watch out though...you may be running faster because they are going to be running after you!! GRRRR!! I am hot!! Look at me run!!

Yep, sinus infection, along with a fever. I took today off from work to rest up. Got some meds, just ate a bowl of chicken noodle soup, and am about to take a nap.

g'luck Anne! It's supposed to be stormy after work so I don't think I'll be able to run today. I think I might be developing a sinus infection and have an appt w/ the doc for tomorrow at 10:20. If I feel ok and the weather is good, I might try my run in the morning.

It's dreary in my town today! It's rainy and dark and I would like nothing more than to curl up on my sofa under a blanket and stare at the TV. But, it's a short week and I have plans to go out of town over the weekend, so I can't complain!

How are you doing, Bloo?

Welcome Kathy!!

How is everyone doing this fine day?? I am afraid I am not getting too much work done myself today. I have been goofing off for most of the day.

This weekend got to go out ALONE with my dh to see a band on Saturday night. How about everyone else? How was your weekend?

Hi Kathy--Welcome!!!!!!

Cruz--I love that song Fix You, by Coldplay! Bravo!

I thought I would share a playlist posted by one of my teammates of the MP3 team, of Irish music that she likes. I made a station called "Gaelic Storm" on pandora.com, plugging in the 4 artists she mentions. It is most excellent!!!! Check it out:

St. Pat's list:

1. Kiss Me I'm Irish - Gaelic Storm
(it's in the Hallmark musical cards this year)
2. Whiskey in the Jar - Dropkick Murphys
3. Buzz's Jig - The Elders
4. Charlie Horse - Great Big Sea
5. I'm a Rover - Great Big Sea

Peace--Anne

I'm new here and thought I'd check out this convo.
:-)
I've been reading and/or on my computer most of the day today. Just a lazy Saturday. Thursday I took my run outside for the first time and it was WINDY. I'd never run in the wind before and I'm afraid I over did it a little. Yesterday I went to a gun show with my dad and walked around all day, so I'm taking today off to rest up and heal a little. :-) Back on the wagon tomorrow! I can't believe I actually miss running when I can't do it! How exciting!!

Cruz...how was Rascal Flatts? I bet they were great!
I went to see Keith Urban & Carrie Underwood here and they were amazing!

seems like everyone's busy lately. I'm going to the Houston Rodeo tonight to see Rascall Flatts. It's going to be a girl's night out!
