(Though I could hardly be called an enterprising young thing, P....but I do run sometimes. )
No school AGAIN today. Come on people, it only snowed about 3 inches. That'll be 5 days tacked onto the end of the year and counting.
MM ~ you're doing great!
FM plan ~ ride the trainer this morning, hit the pool this afternoon, and cram some weights/pushups/crunches in there too. I'm tired of feeling so bloopy.
Speaking of which, mommajb, do you want a partner for your binge-free February? My pantry-face-stuffing has gotten way out of hand again. Sigh.
3.5 very ugly miles in the fog this morning. having GI issues, somewhat stressed about dd1's surgery tomorrow (eye surgery) and dh not being able to get back in time as he's snowbound in Massachusetts. He's going to try and get a bus to Baltimore today then a flight back, we'll see if it works.

Morning all! I was wondering about a February thread, but I was too lazy to start one.
Yesterday I had a chiropractor appointment (have I mentioned how much I love her)?! She has offered to exchange Reiki for adjustments. But, now I have those weird twingey headache things back... hopefully it's short lived because she's getting me back in line.
Last night, I did prenatal yoga and it's so cute to see Val mimic it! <3
This morning, I'm tired and a little queasy. Helllooo pregnancy!
. No running yesterday but a ton of shoveling. No school but some work for me. Hoping to get on the yak trax and get out there for a little run. Should have clearer streets for this weekend when I need to get in a longer one. 24 days until my 1/2 longest run has only been 11 but I feel pretty good about it---mostly concerned about that early start time and sleep since we will be at disney.
NIC-blessings and good vibes to you dd.
Jenlove I have the best memories of doing yoga with my little ones how sweet and wow this is Val bday month!
Reporting one hour on the trainer, with sprints during commercial breaks ! The area surrounding my bike is now littered with an American Girl tea party, a doll bed and all the sofa cushions from the den . At least everyone was happy during my ride.
Nic ~ praying that your DH gets home easily and your DD has a successful and uneventful surgery.
JenLove ~ queasy is good! I can't believe Val is almost 2. Time sure flies. Your two will be just about the same age difference as my two oldest.
DS is begging me to go out and clear a "hockey rink" in our driveway. It's bright blue sky, frigid cold temps out there . Time to channel my inner Wayne Gretsky!
Thanks for the FB love yesterday. The day was much easier to go through here than it had been in Mexico last year. Whew. Who says you can't run away from sadness? Kidding. Kind of. I'm sure an extra year helps smooth out the rough edges too. A n y w a y . . .
Thanks for starting the new thread Nic (and for your dd tomorrow), even though my RR is just to report that I might do some swimming today. It is suddenly raining again, I have missed my opportunity for a sunny jog. It might be asking for trouble but I'm super envious of all the snow everyone east of here seems to be getting this winter.
DrJen, if you haven't already removed me from the Fat Ass on 2/5 you can, I'm still not going. Thankfully neither is dh now. I was beginning to worry as he wasn't training at all. I was afraid he might get all macho and try to do it anyway and then keel over behind some bush. At least my number will be taken over the course by someone moderately fit! (Not me).
Penelope, I did think about this when you posed your 'to register or not to register?" I really thought way back in October that I'd get my training in even though at the exact moment that I registered I didn't feel any mojo at all. But as it turned out I pretty much bought myself a bunch of anxiety with a side of guilt.
JayGee - I fell off my no-dessert resolution this past week so can I join your team to get back on track?
Graceie - You asked about the principal saga right? My dh just filed a petition to recall the school board. It has to be approved by a judge but it is a big loud flag of discontent and all our online papers are running the story and another parent had bumper stickers made up to show support for the Principal. - So, the saga continues.
Lab - Hi! I'm in the possibly-far-too-old-fashioned-about-texting because I've yet to try it myself. But if you're cool with that then I agree with the others about keeping the sports doc and/or athletic trainer in touch the coach. How exciting to have such a talented son!
Okay, gotta go!
No school here. The kids enjoyed a sleepover at a friend's house last night. I am watching those kids today so she can work.
There may be running on my treadmill, but I'm pretty sore from yesterday's shoveling! 4 miles are on the alleged schedule.
Penelope - I find that having had money laid out is very motivating for me to get my runs/medical needs taken care of.
Thank you to all who are using the RR and NRR in this running thread. I don't know what AFM stands for and everytime I see it makes me think of Aunt Flow. I'm sure it's something to do with forward motion or something? But since this is a running thread, it would be nice to stick to the RR-running related and the NRR-not running related. It should cover everything, even the cross training such as biking and swimming, weights, etc.
Okay, off my soap box...and you can boot me off the thread if I'm way off base (or too anal)....
RR: rest day but spent two hours trying to get the ice off the steps and the van.
NRR: third day of no school and not going anywhere. I'm organizing and baking. :)
NRR: I can do that... although I can almost warn you all of mine will be NRR. LOL! My exercises these days are on a rectangular mat or spinning a circle around my waist. Is it spring yet?
Btw, if anyone wants to do Secret Sprinter - I won't be a part of it since I'm not running but I would manage the list. Just an offer if there is interest.
