    @shanaber interesting about the "shake and bake". My mum was always convinced we got more earthquakes in April and October due to the change of seasons. Wonder if there is any truth to it? And we get a lot of earthquakes in NZ.

    I had a lazy ish day. Went for a 3k run, then did a short strength training session, and then went for a short walk in the park before meeting up with an old friend I haven't seen in about 12 years for coffee. Just a wonderful, perfect day.

    Can't believe the end of Feb is here tomorrow! Who's gonna do the march thread?

    Thinking about my 5 siblings makes the other side of my back seize up. 🤣 While I love them all, I only really get along with a few of them. We are all so different. I prefer each of them one on one....family gatherings are not a good idea.

    @Tramboman - Happy Happy Birthday! 🥳
    Seeing as how no one else has guessed yet I will give it a try... I was going to say 64 but then I saw your mileage so will say 68?

    February Total: 167k
    February Goal: 140k

    January Total: 161k

    Mostly cloudy with occasional snowflakes, windy, and low 20s F this morning. Footing was better than yesterday, but not by a lot. Had one significant slip, but caught myself and didn't do any structural damage. Today's run was in honor of my birthday; the first person to correctly guess my chronological age will get a big MFP hug (provided I can figure out how to do emojis).

    Next year when you pop in here claiming your December 2020 mileage, what accomplishments will you have made?

    Return to a good running weight of 175 lbs
    Run at least 4 5k races
    Get a 5k PR
    Average at least 138k per month, to meet my Run the Year pledge of 1,020 miles

    Run the Year Team: Pavement Pounders

    2020 races:
    4-25 Shine the Light 5k, Twinsburg, OH
    5-23 Race for the Parks 5k, Hudson OH
    6-20 Freedom Run 5k, Aurora, OH



    HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, @Tramboman !!!!! i AM SO GLAD YOU WERE BORN! YOUR LIFE MAKES AN IMPACT ON US AND WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOU!

    Also, for the sake of it.

    67

    Morning!

    I have "rested," allllll week because the IT band syndrome crap. Lots of stretching, lots of foam rolling, lots of strength traning focused on glutes, flexors, and hammies.

    I really need a run.

    Not a lot of pain today, just barely a twinge in my back hip joint. i hope it stays away for tomorrow - tomorrow is going to be 64 degrees F here and I soooooo want to get out and run. I'm getting excited.

    I also would like to buy some running shorts, but I don't know what I like. I have some cute nike ones that are SO comfortable, but I don't know if they're too short and they fit as tight as leggings do, but they're shorts. I feel like I should get some that are more loose-fitting. I also want pockets. Lots and lots of pockets.

    I think i have been trading pain in the IT band for pain in other areas - today it's a knot behind my right scapula (shoulder blade + I think I spelled scapula wrong). Getting old is dumb. It's a new thing every other day. That's what my elders say and it's frustrating because I think it's so preventable and I must not be doing something right.

    Under Armour sent me an email for $40 off $100 - I'm sure you all got it too lol. I wonder if they have some joggers that my daughter would wear....
