I had my first anxiety dream about running last night for the 1/2. I dreamt that I forgot my shoes at home. But, it was on the way and I just had to run about a 1/4 of a mile to get them. And I got to run with this really gorgeous man! So I'm really not sure what THAT dream was about? I actually woke up laughing at myself.

Hey Poppy-thanks for doing the list duties. Could you add Mamabeth, Cathtoria and me for the Mayor's Challenge on May 17th? Thanks.

I'm heading out in a little while to meet Cathtoria for a run!

BBM-That's some dream!
post #6 of 1016
I'm off today for tapering.

Hal's schedule calls for me to be off tomorrow too. That doesn't resonate well with me though. I think I may do an easy two miles in the morning. Rce is Saturday. Any thoughts?
post #7 of 1016
Good mornin', ladies!

bbm~I had a race anxiety dream last night too! I dreamt that I fell so far behind the other runners that my dh came by in his car to drive me ahead a few miles so I wouldn't miss the race cut-off. It makes me feel better to know other runners have a little subconcious freak-out going on too!

Okay, May, please let this be the month that dh finds a job.

Good grief, I haven't had any running dreams yet, but I'm so suggestable I probably will now! My most common running dream is that I'm trying to run, usually in a race, but it's like the ground is quicksand and I can hardly move and I'm getting exhausted while people effortlessly run past me. Sometimes, though, I switch it up and I'm the one running effortlessly.

SugarandSun - I'm going to do 2 easy today, then be off Fri and Sat. In general I've found having fresh legs does me better in a race, but I'd go with what you are feeling.

I can't remember if eksmom posted back here again last night, but I talked to her by instant message and eksdad has kidney stones. He was able to come back home with pain meds, and was feeling okay again, but I think still has one stone to pass. I know they say kidney stones are like the equivalent of childbirth, but geez, what rotten timing!

Poppy - are you feeling any better?

RR - ran 4 easy last night, and they felt easy, which is good. Just 2 today and then wait for the race!

Good Morning!

I've been waiting since last month for a new thread to start (I didn't want to jump in- have no clue why ). I'm training for a half in August and maybe the Richmond Marathon in November. Right now I am running a few local 5Ks and 10Ks in hopes of improving my time.

Right now I am doing long runs on Sundays with my 20 month old in the jogger. He seems to like our times out. I admit, that the stroller is killing my runs, I need to get my hands on either an actual 'baby jogger' brand or a bob, something that is simple and light weight.

Glad to be aboard!

Hi all,
Haven't been running, or even walking much lately, but I did want to update that my due date is in 2 weeks!! Everything seems to be going well, and I'm hoping the new little one will stay put for another week, so I can get through the academic year!
Also, I'm going to be in the market for a new jogging stroller, preferably one that also converts to a bike trailer. I'll just need it for one, likely, as ds is probably too big now. Any recommendations?

It just dawned on me - the Enell is probably being held up in customs at the border. Most things make it through just fine, but every so often they open up packages and check them out and take their sweet time to forward them. I will call the company today to check, but I expect that is what happened.

I

to
run
now

It's bike day, so took the bike over to the route for the tri and did a quick 4 miles. Figured out that the fleece I had considered wearing if it's cold is definitely not going to be a good idea. There was a bit of a breeze and I could feel the drag.

The run trail is still not marked and rather than a 3K it looks like it will be more of 2.1 miles. Hope to walk it after the pre-race meeting Sat.

Oh, the race dreams. Keep dreaming that I get my foot tangled in the bike and end up in a huge heap with everybody falling over me. And the alternate is that I somehow get off the path and end up lost in the woods.
But, those dreams are all supposed to be a good sign-you get the anxiety out before the race, you've prepared well, right?!?!

Off to the chiro for a final tune up on my ankle, then genealogy in a musty library, and if it doesn't rain-the garden beckons.

Hope everyone is having weather as beautiful as we are today.

Linda

Good morning and happy May Day to everyone from snowy (yes, that's right, I said SNOWY) Colorado! :

bbm~no running dreams here yet, but I think I posted my triathlon dream from last summer here a while back. Suffice it to say it involved missing my swim start and forgetting my bike and having to go to REI to get a new one during transition one!

sugarandsun~if you really, really feel like you need to run, I would probably do it today rather than tomorrow. You taper for a reason, to rest your legs before the race! Trust in Hal, he knows what he's doing!

athansor~I have and love a Chariot for my jog stroller/bike trailer. If you have an REI near you, they have the chassis and accessory kits on sale for 20% off tomorrow through the 11th for their anniversary sale. It's about the best deal you will be able to find. I got the double plus jog kit and bike kit last year for about the same price as the single normally is.

Welcome aboard to splendid and bjorker!


I know we have a few racers doing the Flying Pig this weekend, so I thought I would post this article about the race...I thought it was really interesting!

No running planned today...supposed to do a final 2 before Sunday, but with the crappy weather here I think I'll just bag it and call it good!
post #17 of 1016
Here's to a fine may 1 in duluth: prediction of snow, grey clouds and wind. But -- I'm handling some crappy aspects of my job today so I won't be running outside. I'm also feeling a bit under the weather -- I think I carry my stress in my stomach, urgh.

chariot. my 5.5 yr old still basically fits in the double with sister. Plus you can easily move the seatbelt/harness to the middle to balance the weight of one. three downsides: 1. cost -- it is spendy, 2. a little trickier to fold than say a bob stroller but not harder than a burley, 3. infants are a little trickier to put into a chariot (I hear they make something to make it work, but we began with both kids at about 5 months).

Hope all is well in dingoland. I need to run (both run run and get moving to something else).

i spoke too soon. back seems to be hurting a lot and now i'm really jonesing for a run or a mountain bike ride. this sucks.

and there's something funny hurting in my leg. it's one isolated spot on the back of my leg near the hamstring, near the knee. but it's not a muscle thing or a knee thing. it's not swollen that I can tell or bruised - but it hurts all the time and is getting worse and the only thing in my head is blood clot only because i don't know why else it would hurt. anyone else ever experience something like this?
post #19 of 1016
Poppy! You're like the maitre'd of the Dingo Cafe these days! Please add me to the race list!!!!!! August 16, Friday Harbor 8.8k Loop Run. Catchy name eh? Well it isn't too long but I have to start somewhere right?

GMM - That's a scary thought, any reason to think you'd be prone to a clot?

Kerc - about the jobs. How about the PNW?

DrJen - THanks for the Eksdad update. Poor him!

BBM - That is a funny dream, I always have those forgotten-item-of-essential-gear dreams too, though not with a hot guy .
post #20 of 1016
ok race list all updated!
plady - that's what y'all get when i am laid up in recovery with a laptop better now that the pain meds are not as necessary...it was foggy going for a bit...SJI sounds wonderful, btw!
