Apologies to anyone who posted your goals over in July. I just think new week, new month = time for a new thread!

Welcome to anyone and everyone who is running, thinking about running, walking, wogging, whatever. This thread gets moving fast (like some of the runners here). Jump in where you can, don't feel like you always need to catch up!

My weekend -- get ready, it's exciting:
saturday: bring dh's computer in to work. Dump contents to external 450 gig harddrive there. Reinstall operating system. Oh bring along family too just for fun.

sunday: clean out basement. Install shelving over my desk area. Move big old honking table out, replace with smaller table. Goal is to put sewing, knitting and everything else stuff on the shelves, leaving the table space to actually work.



GOALS for Kristin:
1. Get out of the house before 8am 4 days this week. (this is a problem for dissertation writing and needs to be solved ASAP, my best writing time is 7-10 am).

2. Walk or run 100 minutes this week.

3. Water drinking.


Thanks Reb for the dddc!

EKSmom -- can you post some recipes for cukes on your blog or something? WTG on deciding to switch plans. I always thought you were freaking nuts anyhow. I thought of you over the weekend when I was driving to the hardware store to buy shelf brackets -- in my defense, I thought it closed in 10 minutes when it actually closed in 70 minutes.

Geo: are your inlaws there or are you going to Indiana?

BBM: 5 miles. Holy smokes!

everyone else

Sorry i forgot to comment on that one. My husband is the world's worst person for me to send to the store. He doesn't eat much fruit and I love love love fruit for snack. So....anyone want either a WAY overripe box of strawberries or a way underripe bag of peaches? I've got milk, I'll trade ya.

post #15 of 1086
subbing : must go....maybe to use my very very last day of DSL at work waiting on an African to come pick up the rest of our stuff. but who knows. gotta love African time.
post #16 of 1086
Katie, I added you.

Kerc, cuke recipes coming up on the blog. We are positively buried under squash and cukes right now and I am having to get creative.

Mamabeth, so sorry you can't take full advantage of the DSL on your last day!

Went out to lunch with DH - Indian food. Tomorrow I reclaim my health... get back to running, eating right. Gonna be a hot bike ride home this afternoon (heat index over 100?), but I gave DH all my "weight" - backpack with everything I don't need so that he can carry it home, not me. The only catch is that in order to be able to wear my sunglasses, I have to be able to transport my regular glasses in my (empty) water bottle, which means no water. Only 6ish miles though, so I should be OK.

I need to check in here for motivation! It's just so HOT out Dh just gave me his old ?MP3 player so hoping that helps keep me running instead of breaking into walks like usually happens.

Awesome thread

how tight's your bra? could you hook em on there and still have water?
room in your saddle bag? mine has a teeny bit of room once I get my spare tube and dodads to change tire in there.


squash: are we talking summer squash?

Just subbing.

Cut my run a mile short today--it was just too stuffy on the TM at the gym and my shoes were bugging me again! : My toes felt first like they were on fire then my left foot started feeling like I was landing on a stone under the ball of my foot again. WHat's up with that??? These are the new new shoes too. I'm bummed and confused.
Gotta run.

Bra could be tighter but it might work. Saddle bag is small and will be filled with keys and phone (I ditched the tire changing stuff today; 100 degrees is not when/how I'm gonna change my first flat. Phone will have to cover that today!). The glasses case won't fit in there anyway, so I'd only put my glasses in there if I could put keys and phone elsewhere.

I do have a second bottle cage that's normally unused, I could probably get a standard 20 oz. bottle of water or Gatorade and stick it in there. Duh.

I think I need a bigger wedge bag, I was trying to be conservative about weight but it's not realistic.

Yep, summer squash. Just posted recipes to my blog.
