Dingos running in the new year! - Page 9

post #161 of 1351
Mandy - Congrats on the new puppy. I LOVE huskies. I hope you'll post pics.

Jo- I hear you on the tv thing, my DH is the exact same way. Good luck.

Bec -We must be the same age. So cool that you have your neighbor to help your german.

Gaye - Yay! :

Towson - those ads are hilarious! Oh, and I just love the word 'craptastic'.

Cersha - welcome!

Poppy - Your run was great! Don't be so hard on yourself. For the hills, refer back to the aforementioned Adidas ad with the man racing the cable car. There's a good reason you're not breaking any speed records where your at.

So no run for me today because the *^$*&*!@ cold did set in. Trying to stay on top of it so that, hopefully, it passes quickly.

Welcome Cersha. I hope you love it here. This is THE place to be for support of your running (and life) efforts.

So I avoided as well as I could going out on the slick that is anywhere outside the door. We went looking for a computer desk because our is literally falling apart and could collapse at any time...but we didn't settle on anything (which IMO was dumb, but whatev). Trouble is, just that wee bit of ice-walking, even in incredibly sensible boots, was hard on my groin. I have been doing squats and careful lunges, but I tell you. I told dh, I am getting new shoes this week. Remind me come Thursday. Nothing over 5 mi until I get new shoes. Thanks. At least I did get some walking in. Because beyond that, I have not done much today.

I also wrote another 1000 words. And ohmygod I am starting to get a real grasp on the creative PROCESS here. The internal editor is being turned off, and I am mastering the "dump and move on." The shaping, carving and building comes after...and only THEN the refining. SO liberating. I can't tell you. I keep this up, I really will commit the whole thing to hard drive. Good stuff.

Dh did a few pages of Arabic with ds this afternoon, and it went well. I think we're at the point where ds is really grasping things better than a year ago, and it's the right time for them to work on this. And I think daily progress is the key to keeping dh on-task and away from the TV. I am thrilled that my kids have the chance to become actually literate in a foreign language wholly outside their formal education. So I am going to ride herd on the program. It's good for me too. My Arabic literacy sucks.

I decided to add curry to the chicken soup instead of the usual tarragon. I hope the kids still eat it. Curry chicken soup with brown rice, anyone? Come on over.

oooh, JayGee, find any worth mentioning?

RR: 4 miles today. It was fine, nice easy run. Need shoes. Did abs, push ups, and some PT work.

I set out today with the intention of running about an hour and a half. A mile into it, my toes were numb from the cold.: I turned around, intending to scrap the run, but started feeling better as I turned away from the wind. So, I decided to detour onto the high school track, and did some quarter mile repeats. I love those! They are so fast and fun. I ended up running for 50 minutes (4.25 miles total) before getting too cold to go on, and came home.

I do have a question, though. After my shower my stomach, thighs and but were bright red and itchy. It looked like an allergic reaction, but I can't think of to what. Could the cold, and then a warm shower do that?

Ni didn;t decide... I'm (patiently) waiting on my frineds (that would be HMB, MB and MBelle) to tell me which one to sign up for! I'd much perfer SDandy Springs over downtown Atl.
Don;t worry, none of you need to run with me, just talk to me before and after!!!

jaygee~will you email me your real first and last name? I'm putting you down as my inspiration for the marathon registration. thanks!

dog photos on blog, link below. It was an 8 hour trip and needless to say, I didn't get any exercise. I will do everything I can to do it tomorrow though.

the dog is very calm and very shy - but at the same time a sweet boy. He was good on the leash when we went for a min-walk and he seems to love the idea of snow.

mandy~What a great looking dog!

bec~My skin also does that. It's usually a reaction to the cold and goes away within an hour or so.

No forward motion for me today :

Instead we had our first ER trip... DD somehow fell against a wall corner in the living room, cutting her forehead through to the bone, and we spent the last 3 hours getting 10 stitches put in almost as hard on mama as it was on DD...


: Cersha

Mandy - so happy to hear about your new dog!

callie~ That's horrible!! I'm so sorry. I hope your dd isn't too traumatized.
post #172 of 1351
Oh Callie. Poor little Nora. How's she feeling now?
post #173 of 1351
Thanks yall....

DD was fine til they started the stitches, then they had to wrap her up to keep her arms and legs still, and that seemed to really freak her out. There was a lot of screaming, but 2 minutes after they finished, she fell asleep... I'm not sure how she'll feel when she wakes up. DH promised her chicken nuggets when it was all over, so that will probably be the first thing she remembers
post #174 of 1351
callie! oh that sounds awful hope she's doing ok
post #175 of 1351
Aw callie That sounds like an awful day. I hope it feels better when she wakes.

bec, is your skin back to normal? I have had that after an hour or more out in the cold wind. Looks like a scald? I usually don't check on it once it's covered (as in, showered and many layers of clothing put on), but by the time I see it again, it's OK. Nice job sticking with your run, though.

Oh, poor Nora!

45 minutes yoga then 30 minutes walking uphill on the treadmill. Gotta train for the Indi Mini hills, since it doesn't sound like Lisa's been working on that whole hill problem on that course.

DS did that when he was two, and same thing as you experienced - it took four of us to hold him down. s that's just no fun.

I hope Nora's ok and not traumatized too badly. I bet that was awful!

Red skin after shower after cold: yes, I've had that before. I generally get a good lotion, slick it on there while still sort of wet after the shower and hope for the best.

Jan 1 We went snowshoeing with the kids + I took Erin skiing.
Jan 2 Home with puking kidlet #2
Jan 3 Skied ~8 km by myself
Jan 4 Skied 1 km with Leah (yay leah!) and about 5 km towing her in the sled.

All in all 2009 is off to a good start I'd say.

Tomorrow: I'm going to get my xmas cards out, volunteer in Erin's classroom, and think about working. I'm going to check my work email as well.

Cersha welcome to the thread. Be careful about the use of the phrase crosstraining in this group . That's code drjen began throwing out about 3 years ago for something she did with drjen's dh.
post #179 of 1351
Yep, Jo, that's what it looked like! I figured it was the cold, but took some Benadryl, just in case. It got better after about an hour, and is back to normal, now. Thanks for letting me know that I don't have leprosy, or am allergic to speed work!

welcome cersha! take it nice and slow and you might be surprised at how long you can run.

we had a little party for dd this afternoon...I had told her she could have three friends from school over and then it turned into four, then six... anyway they had a good time and were very cute. she's spending the night tonight with my mom at a HOTEL, big stuff I tell ya!

Need an opinion mamas....we just found out that the funeral for our friend is Saturday at 11 a.m. fine for all involved, my SIL is going to babysit (I think) bc she's not working, etc. But I am supposed to run 18 miles this wkd. Sunday's obviously out, and Friday's only six days after running 16 so that doesn't seem smart. WWYD? ETA: I promise I am not totally selfish...just trying to see if I can work it out one way or another.

I love those "we're different" ads! I remember seeing most of them in RW at the time. LOVE the pg mom one!
