Love is in the Air for Dingos! Running Mamas February Thread! - Page 6

post #101 of 938
Hey ladies! sorry to just pop on here for a minute, just busy, busy here. Saturday we went to my in-laws for half the day and had a great visit, then came home and got ready for church that night. Sunday morning I spent 6 hours at my Dad's house taking care of my Grandmother and cleaning her room, came home and made dinner for our Lifegroup (family bible study) and then went to bible study.

RR: I ran 4.25 this morning,

NRR: showered, started some laundry, cleaned half the house from being gone on Sunday (aparently dh can watch the kids OR clean up, but not both ), got J for Kindergarten and stopped for gas. Lunch with the kids and bath for one of them, now I'm on to dishes, homework with J, getting dinner started and things together for wrestling (K and J) tonight. I also have some Valentine's Day projects that I want to get done so that I don't feel pressured.

need to do abs and some yoga today,must. fit. it. in. must.

Love to you ladies!

Lisa

Race list updated to here!

And I have a question, with all the Flying Pig talk, why is it called the Flying Pig? I have guesses but figured maybe some of y'all actually know. I couldn't find it when I looked on the website.

Plady, I have been thinking of you all weekend.

Geo, so sorry about the email problems. Let us know what happens with your administration/IT or whatever.

Po7, glad you are feeling well enough to run, and happy early birthday to your DD! I have been thinking lately that the wee dingos are really growing up. :

Welcome Conniebonnie!

I feel the best today that I've felt in about 2.5 weeks. The congestion is clearing out finally and I slept pretty soundly last night. We had a pretty productive weekend too, and I'm thinking maybe soon I'll even have enough energy to return to my OCD nesting. I can't believe that at this point I am 10ish weeks from having this baby (10 and a half, technically).

My aunt (Aunt Nelle, another one of my mom's sisters) had surgery this AM to repair a 90% blocked carotid artery. There was a small risk of stroke during the surgery, but she is finished and in a room and doing OK.

ETA: I forgot to say, we had a runner killed here last week. He was just a few days shy of 50, left behind a wife and 2 teenage girls. He was running on a street that I drive by every day as it is about 1/2 a mile from my parents' house. It's also the street that DD's PS teacher from last year lives on - and I have run on that street w/ that teacher. Anyway. He was on an early morning run and was killed by a hit and run driver. He was found about 5:45 AM so it was probably still dark when it happened. I think he was wearing a reflective vest, though. The person has not turned themselves in or been found and it has really been on my mind. Y'all be careful out there.

That's horrible about the runner getting hit. As my runs increase in distance, I'm forced to run on roads more and more. I think I've been lulled into a false sense of safety lately. Hugs and prayers for that poor man's family.

Oh that poor man and his family. I'm afraid of cars here myself.

conniebonnie welcome that's exciting. I am a former runner who is getting back into it. I am taking it slow and having great results.


RR I ran a slow 3 miles at the track and did some ab work at home. My legs are really feeling yesterdays 6 miles. Tomorrow is off because of my work schedule.

Does anyone have a good recommendation for a strength training program geared to runners. I am mostly concerned with keeping my legs and knees in good form.

Thanks


Yeah Holly's Mom. I just love girls we have 3!!

I got my cathartic crying over with during Extreme Home Makeover and then AFV. Our usual emotional rollercoaster Sunday night line-up. I wondered if they reversed the order last night because the home show was so sad.

Take it easy, mama. Hope your 10yo has a wonderful birthday.

Mamabeth, invest good $$ into a serious bra. In the past I have gone to Victoria's Secret and they actually come in the room and fit you. It is so worth it. My bra is about 2yo but looks ancient with all the nursing wear&tear. So when I came across a 65% off a super-spendy bra last week, I tried it on and it made such a difference!! My whole upper body looked longer & thinner. I felt skinnier. I looked skinnier. My boobs were getting mixed up with my waist, I guess. I don't need new shirts; just a new bra to look better in the shirts I have!

Yeah on 10 weeks to go!! s to your aunt. I hope she feels better fast.

I think it's the hit-and-run aspect that's weighing on my mind more than anything. I keep trying to put myself in that person's shoes and understand how it could have happened, how they could have driven off without stopping, how they could not turn themselves in once it was all over the news, etc. etc. Anyway, this morning they did a police checkpoint on that street from 5-6 AM and apparently there's a vehicle of interest they are looking for.

welcome new dingos! the great thing about this group is we have all varietals of runners, so don't be shy about posting distances. any distance at all is better than what a whole lot of other people do - nothing- so be proud!

i am taking too many days in between runs and it's getting me down. i teach a class on mon and wed that just eats into my whole day. it's from 10-1:40. the mornings are full of getting kids ready for school, dropped off at school and myself to school. i teach for what feels like forever. i come home and have approximately 1 hour before i have to pick up dd at preschool. usually by that time i am starving and whatever i eat, however small, does not have time to digest before hopping on the treadmill for a run. so...i delay even further and by the time i am potentially ready to run without a full tummy, i am busy doing homework or fixing dinner. the end of the evening does not work well for me usually because i am just so darned tired after getting kids in bed and finishing my school work.

i realize the solution is to get up early and run, which i used to be able to do...but i can't seem to manage it during the winter.

so i put off until tomorrow, but i feel like i am always doing that and am frightfully behind on my training for the half.

congrats hollysmom!! welcome baby girl - we have been waiting for you around here! :

I had a nightmare years ago where I was impatient about waiting for people to cross the street in front of me and so I hit these pedestrians (bump, bump) and tried to then drive away and escape, but knew I would get caught. Then I woke up. Thank god. I still remember the horrible sinking feeling in my stomach in the dream when I realized that I had actually hit a person and just wanting to escape that. I always think of this dream when I read about hit and runs. Well, that, or that the driver was impaired. My heart goes out to the family, and it is a good reminder that I am not too paranoid about safety.

Katherine I forgot to respond earlier, but this is so sad. My heart goes out to this family!

DH has been hit on his bike by a hit and run driver but he was so fortunate that it was not serious at all and that an onlooker chased down the driver, but the incident still haunts me. My thoughts and prayers for safe running for all the dingos!

Argh, I *would*, but I'm just afraid that I'll go get fitted, spend $80 or whatever (or even $50), and then it won't fit in a few months when he totally weans, or picks back up again, or whatever.

dd is giving me FITS. must go do something...not sure what...google "horrible 5 year olds?"

AND.....WELCOME HOLLYSMOM BABY!!!!!!!!!!! new baby dingo love!

mamabeth: with Erin when i got to this stage I went out and bought 3 new bras. Seriously 2 days later I was pregnant. This time I'm making due with my blue canoe bras. I mean I just don't have the money or time to figure out what to do with my seriously 40 A size. Neither do the VS folks.

welcome hollys sister
