GMM, are you and dh compatible bike riders? That would be fun! My dh likes to ride for leisure. I like to go as fast as I can! We'd probably end up getting competitive which would be a downward cycle for me because he's such a natural athlete. But, the concept is fun.
Moonshine, I like that kind of triathlon!!! Could we just replace the swim with some yoga?
Mamambeth, wtg on the "don't think" plan!
Ouch, RM! I would think that anything with calendula and lavender in it would aid healing.
1jooj, you must be the most amazing cook!! I would love to be able to come up with ideas like that!
Plady, I like your x-training plan!!
Geofizz, good luck while your IL's are visiting.
HBM, school shopping already? We don't go back until after Labor Day. Hope you got some good stuff!
Monikita, good thoughts being sent your way while the IL's are in town! I think it's great that your dd is making up her own signs!!
We signed with ds and he was later to speak but just a hair. But, he's so reasonable. I think it's because he was able to communicate with us in SOME way before he could actually talk. It was a good trade-off. He's 4.5 now and can't remember a single sign! But, dh said that recently he asked for water and signed at the same time, so even if his mind doesn't remember, his body does.
Wow, Eksmom!! You were so productive!!! Sounds like you made the right decision about your training schedule.
pumpkinseed, I get irritated with my dh for seemingly small things like that, too. Then I feel bad. Then I have to try to justify myself.
I hope you and dd have fun at the pool!
I'm sorry your feeling so blue. I can feel myself slipping into a funk, too. I'm trying to remind myself (like 1jooj) that I don't have to say yes to everything. I'm also trying to figure out what is going on in my life that is bringing me down. It's my tendency to just blame it on the mood disorder, but in retrospect (like 2 years later) I can look back and see what triggered the down time. So, I'm spending some serious effort right now to figure it out instead of waiting until later. I don't know if that's anything like what you do. I just hope that you can keep your head above water.

Century September 30
September is going to be a busy month!!!
Why does Kerc's name come up as Old Lady R-C when she is quoted?
ND, I'm glad your foot felt better today!
Monday 35 min run
Tuesday 30 min run/walk
Wednesday 40 min hill run
Thursday 30 min run/walk
Friday 40 min run with emphasis on speed
Saturday Off but maybe a long bike ride
Sunday 55 min run
1) Drink 80+ oz. water
2) Eat 5+ servings of veg. or fruit daily
3) Drink less beer and wine
4) Ride my bike at least twice
My runs are starting to feel good!! Today was supposed to be 35 min, but I did my 3 mile loop in 29:45. It was still over 30 minutes because my driveway is so long and steep. I don't get how I can go from 12+ min miles to under 10 and back again and they all feel the same! Today is day one of my cycle which is normally a day when I feel like crap. I did when I woke up. Since that most excellent run, I've felt great!
I'm trying to change my form. I'm trying to hit the pavement 50 times every 20 seconds. It's so hard!!! My quads are feeling it! I'm no where near 50, but I've been told that's the best way to run for long distances. I do notice that it makes me faster which probably helps to explain why today was so much faster for me than the same run last week.
