good morning ladies!!
I am on cloud nine to have run and not be in any pain!! It makes taking last week off from running bearable now.
: I'm looking at the Pfitzer 18/55 plan even though I dont' know if I'm runnign a marathon this fall. I'm still trying to locate one. Either way, the training will be fun and challenging, will help me know what my body can do, and will have me ready should I find a fall marathon I want to do. I'm easing back into it this week, 2.5 really easy on monday with lots of walking, pre and post run. Then 5.5 of pure running at normal speed yesterday and feeling great, and no pain. whoo hoo!!
You racers are a real inspiration!!
creb~glad that you are back to running and pain is diminishing!!! that's great news! hope it keeps getting better for you! way to go on the weight loss, can you share your secrets???
nurse laurie!! ditto what the others said about getting back into it postpartum. Just enjoy both baby and running, plenty of time for the hard core stuff, and baby will be big before you know it.
I know some one on here was asking about a double jogger. We have one to sell for about 1/3 of the original price, it's hardly used
: and really nice. the only thing is how would I get it to you??
got to get going on the work out. going to do a couple of pilates and some yoga today for planned day off. I also want to walk on the TM for a few minutes to loosen up the muscles from yesterday and keep up on the motion for my legs.
IL's and my dad and grandmother were here yesterday and that was nice. My dad is totally been crackin' me up with how open he has gotten about things. He used to be so closed mouth. I'l lhave to share some stories here sometime.
Okay, I know I said I was getting off here, but had to comment on drjen's story:So I checked out the official results for my race on Sat, and it was sort of depressing. I was 57th out of 88 total (it's a really small race). Also, I found out that the woman who I struggled to pass and stay ahead of the whole race, and finally got ahead of and beat by 2 seconds was 71 years old!!! How embarrassing to be feel good about passing someone and then to find out they are twice your age and can still almost kick your butt! Last year I got beat in the last few feet by a 15 year old cross country runner, and this year I managed to overcome a 71 year old. Geez. Oh well, next year I'll try again on a full night's sleep!
but at the same time, your story is inspiring too. To think that we can all be that 71 yo lady someday, kickin' butt and encouraging younger runners !!! way to go on getting out there and rockin'!!!!
eksmom~any news on your aunt yet? I know waiting to hear is so difficult. Saw that you helped reb on her blog, I would love to know about that countdown ticker..
if you have time!
patti~good to hear from you and glad that you are feeling well. I love hearing updates on you and the baby. the names you have picked out are totally great!!
wawoof and flitters~way cool to find that you live near each other and ran your race together!! how much fun!! I sooooooo wish I had some great ap/dingo mamas living near me thta I could run with IRL.

cherylann~ hope your bbq went well and you had fun!!
okay, rant coming!
also been battling with feeling fustrated wtih my body. I'm never going to have a "perfect" body, but feel okay with what I've got. Been wanting to try to slowly rid of some body fat and become harder. I've also been stuck between two sizes of clothing, so niether fits me right, and that's aggrivating and uncomfortable at times. this past week with no running, I got a nice gut back, which is so
: because I was eating around 1500-1800 calories, trying to eat mostly healthy food, and was still doing pilates and yoga. I know they dont' burn the calories like running, but still! a gut!!??
I just seem stuck where I'm at even when I am running. Associating with crebs post a while back on her blog about "shouldn't marathoner's be skinny?" even though I havent' run a marathon, runnign 40 mile weeks and eating healthy, I'm in that same mind set, should I have to be working at this weight thing??
Okay, thanks for letting me vent. hello to all you wonderful mamas I missed by name (and I know there are many).
