Good morning, runners!

No run for me today. My husband and I are leaving in a few hours for the mountains this weekend. I plan on running a 6-miler while I'm there, so wish me luck - the terrain isn't as easy as my local neighborhood streets! :)

Have a great long weekend!

    Have fun on your vacation, Slender1!

    I am kinda back after pulling a muscle or something in my lower butt/upper thigh. I was just out running one night and I felt a litle tightness in that area. By the time I got home, I could barely walk. I'm not sure what exactly I pulled but it didn't allow me to run for more than 2 weeks-just when I was getting faster and able to run longer distances:cry:

    Today I ran for 20 min on an 5.0 incline (on the treadmill) at a moderate pace. I know that isn't long but it is better than nothing. I am going to try to slowly get back into running over the next two weeks. I want to take it slow and easy so i don't re-injure myself.

    I have been reading your posts daily, but didn't want to post until I was back in the swing of things. Have a good weekend and keep running!:flowerforyou:

    Today was our pft run for boot camp. I ran 3 miles in 30:09. My personal best. I was very excited since part of the loop contained a very steep hill that we had run up 3 times. (that usually get my heart rate up over my 100% max). I think I do need to start pushing myself a litte more though as I only burned 182 calories in the 30 minutes. Thank kinad makes is it seem a little too easy.

    Have fun on your vacation Slender. Shannon, good luck with the foot. Fitmom take care of yourself.

    No run today for me, got in a great swim. The pool that I go to has been closed all this week to fix some things, but now it's back up! Love a good Friday swim!

    Hello runners! No run for me today, it was Legs & Back. I am not feeling the greatest, fighting off an allergy/ cold thing. UGH! I'm glad I worked out.

    Run is planned for early tomorrow, I'm going w/ my buddies for 6-7 miles I think? Then my girls are doing a kids of steel triathlon which is a 50yd swim, 1.5 mile bike, .5 mile run. They are excited about it!! We've been *training* so they will do great!

    Happy Birthday to me!

    Good afternoon guys:flowerforyou:

    I ran 4 miles at an easy pace bright and early this morning. It was dark and muggy.

    Plus, we heard a coyote calling.:noway: I heard coyotes are afraid of people but we didn't wait around to find out. My running buddy and I channeled an olympic track runner and cleared the area fast.

    Make it a great day
    -Kechie.

    WTG, Lauren!! :drinker:

    Kechie - I encountered a coyote on a running path early one morning, I'm sure he was faking it, but he didn't look scared to me. :laugh:

    Jogged 5k and walked another 45 min. New shoes and a day of rest, I shaved 45 sec off my time. I did it in 27:45, which puts me at just under 9 minutes on the splits. All this was with 55 pounds of stroller and baby.

    I spent two hours in the shoe store today. The guy listened to me and my shoe/foot drama, watched me walk barefoot around the store, put me in about 12 different shoes, some with and some without inserts, watched me jog around the store, before he finally found a shoe that 'he' was happy with. I now have shoes with shiny blue accents. It's the most attention my feet have had in years, but my times were good and I have run my first 5k pain free in 15 years.

    Which shoe store did you go to? I need that kind of help. I don't think my new shoes are working out for me.
