Hi there Running Mamas,
2Babybees, I hope your leg is back at 100% soon, it totally stinks when you can't run.
Oh jooj, our GI bug travelled up to your family, so sorry
I hope you guys feel better soon.
Paige, wow good for you for staying motivated, it is so hard when you are exhausted. Take it easy when your body needs it Mama.
Hi Pumpkinseed, I like Elizabeth Pantley, she has good ideas and good philosophy. Hope you get to run soon. I have been more heavy on the running than the yoga, been having such a hard time carving out the time..... Can we have 2 more hours in the day please?
Jen Love, you feel better now woman,
you hear me?
Po6, that is awesome that you feel great, it sounds like you are recovering well. I am so excited following your training for your ultra.
Hey, have we hard from Sally Z lately? How are you Mama?
Hi Mamabeth, good for you for getting on the TM. So were you a competitive gymnast? Wow, when i was a kid I dreamed of that....
Chamamama, hi there. Good for you for sticking to your routine. That is great how you are making your fitness a priority. I agree that it is really hard to cram it in when you are already tired and juggling other stuff. I am glad you are feeling that it is paying off for you. Yay
Mamaley, good for you for getting out there. Running is pretty hard on your body and it is really important to have good running shoes. A good basic training shoe is worth the investment in my book. Keep it up Mama
Runningmommy, I think you should definately try to get seeded. That will help you so much. How exciting. There is nothing worse than being stuck in that back of the pack "Shuffle"
Holly's Mama, what have you been up to girl? How is it going? It is nice to see you
BBM, thanks for serving as our bug sovereign with such aplomb. How are you feeling?
Patti, I hope you got out today and are feeling some positive energy. I am thinking of you
Kerc, sign me up for the beach run and then the knitting. Yum, and a running Mamas potluck of course, mmmmmmm And i would make Mr Dingo come along and entertain us all, he is one funny man
Shanti, dang woman! What are you going to do about the house? Do you have lots of carpets that you can remove? That must be hard to spend so much time cleaning. And the knees. I periodically have knee pain. It comes and stays with me and then I slowly work out of it. I don't really understand what causes it. Do you have access to a pool that you could get in and take the strain off your knees? Not as fun as running but sometimes a different routine just for a day or two a week and break you out of the cycle of knee pain. Also, speaking of pain, I am sympathising with you about your election. I hope your new PM doesnt F up things as badly as our prez. has Blah.
Hi Tori, welcome and good for you! This is a great group and wonderful motivation. So you write? What sort of things? Sorry I am so nosy, I am a wannabee writer......
Green Mnt, I feel your zit pain mama, we are the pimple sisters at the moment. Enjoy the warm weather if you can, it sounds like you have a busy trip and then it is back home. It must be hard to be away from DS....
OH EK's Mama, I hope your intestines are back with the program Mama. I have been following your saga with sympathetic pain in my gut. And look at you running fast already. Woohoo!
Katemom, you are one speedy Mama, that is so awesome, And Grand Cayman. Wow, 2 days alone, a wedding, bahamas? What is there not to like about that. Very very cool deal. Oh and congrats on the internship. What are you gonna be doing?
Dr Jen, hope you get a chance to have some time for yourself and get a run in. you are a busy woman.
Everyone else, Hi there,
I did 5.5 today hard. I woke up and all day looked forward to it. Did a mixed hill and speed interval set. It was so good. My body is feeling strong and my speed is coming back. today the hills were actually harder than the speed so that was a big deal for me.
Not sure what I will do tomorrow, I need to see how I feel, maybe some straight up speed sets....
I have been knitting like a crazy lady. I finished big little dingo's pants on Sunday and she has been wearing them every day. I am so happy. And I finally tried dying yard with kool aid. did it with little dingos and it was so fun and came out so well. I am even dreaming of knitting these days
Take care. Talk to ya tomorrow
