Spring has sprung, summer is a comin'...are ya runnin? dingo fest May 09

May Flowers!!! Are they hear yet or are we just drowning in April Showers?

From DrJen:

"Come one, come all, come join the Dingoes!

We are a group of women who are united in the desire for forward motion, and we support each other in our quest to find balance and reason in our lives.

There are no requirements for joining the thread besides a desire to move forward. So, if you're just starting the couch to 5k or training for an ultramarathon, you belong here!

We post fast (figure ~1000 posts per month), and it's great when you follow along and encourage others. If you fall behind, it's just like your training schedule: Hop right back in and continue on.

Below, I'll post a list of pregnant dingoes, our race list, and the links to the question: Why are we called the dingoes?

So, post your intro and your goals, and we'll welcome you and cheer you on!

Edit: Spelling in title changed to reflect group consensus, though not necessarily English-language norms.

Edit II: We are the dingo pack: a bunch of badass women jet-setting around the country, b!tch-slapping, giving props, and holding babies."

Goals: rock the indy mini with dingo friends. Really step up the weights after the race.

Mamajb~sorry been meaning to answer you. I found Jorge Cruise's "12 second sequence" book and dvd at the library and just bought the book online last night. It has more advanced moves than the dvd and I love the dvd. Before that I was doing "Cathe" abs video which kicks serious butt on the abs and the push up challenge which was awesome for the abs/arms, etc. Let me know what you go with, love to have a lifting buddy.

kids yelling, shower calling, must run!

Hoping to find my way to the living today. Have to pick up my shoes, boil sugar syrup for the bees (which means buying sugar), pick up some lumber...and I'd like to do a small run to prep for Sunday. I am finding with all the injury, stress and illness that threatens that I am probably just going to have to figure out how to train smarter. Fewer miles, better miles.

Have a great Indy weekend, all you! Enjoy, enjoy enjoy! There's nothing like a Dingo meetup!

Nick It's raining here too.

geo, re the crying, I cried in a meeting one time when my internship committee (they were supposed to be support!) asked me how I was doing (terrible and depressed) and they recommended to the sem that I not be allowed to be a pastor. yeah, we can't cry. anyways...

enjoy the meetup!!!!!!! wish I could fly and meet y'all!

Nic, I have a good friend in Brunswick. She is a Lutheran pastor too and really could use a friend or two outside her church, and she runs, so if you end up going there, lmk. and also I get down there every now and then! hope it smooths out for you all, I spent my childhood not knowing where we were going to move next and it was rough.

must go get some pinestraw....it is supposed to rain here but I need to go get it while i don't have kids with me (can't fit it in the car otherwise). also, inspired by italy, I'm finally going to get a clothesline for the porch. take care mamas!!!!

I don't know really, I just read somewhere that scobys tend to prefer to stay with the same form of sugar throughout but if you try the ecj and it doesn't like it I still have another one I can send.

Jo - Hope your tummy is okay. I made a video of my run yesterday for you but as you can imagine it's a little bouncy. It's kind of funny that way, it makes it look like I'm running faster than I am. Anyway, if I can edit it enough I may put it over at FB, we'll see.

Indy Mini Racers! : : :

BBM - that was some prompt new thread action!

Poppy - Hope your tummy is better too!

I don't have any run scheduled today, just lots to do around the house. In fact I'm banning myself from the computer for the rest of the day. Between this place and keeping up with the flu in SMA it's crazy.
so ! :

:: Good luck to the Indy mini runners! ::

I'm hoping to be running again this month. I think I'll also be visiting a chiro who specializes in sports injuries, that my doc recommended. I feel the need for some adjusting.

I went for my swim this morning. It felt great, but it was tough. Gigi wasn't there to help share the lead and I did feel pushed...but then that might just be a good thing! I talked to the lady swimming behind me and she feels the push to keep going behind me, so we keep each other going that way. Whew! We swam about 1850 in an hour!

I was thinking about Geo on the drive home.
This may not be related.
My own opinion, which may not be worth much, is that we have to be true to being women, and be equally valued for our own innate ways. If we have to act like men to be equal, then is it really? That is my condensed rambling thoughts on the matter. I don't work right now, and I have never worked in a male dominated field, but anyway. I had a man tell me last year, regarding my education, that a "fat lot of good it did me, because all I did was stay home and look after kids". I need to let it go, but it still makes me SO MAD that people are so ridiculous!

Woo hoo it's Friday, it's a new month!!! I'm so ready for new things!
Happy Weekend dingos!

Just signed up for a 5K tomorrow. It is a fundraiser for the school and we are doing it as a family, so not sure that I will be "running" it per se. I really hope that it is not raining!

Mandy, that is great news about your fitness/size drop. Are you still doing Eat to Live?
post #19 of 886
Okay, I'm not really here but I just logged my run from yesterday at mapmyrun and it says my average pace was 9:30!!!! That is far and away the fastest I've ever managed! Don't laugh!
