  • @katharmonic You are doing great! Only three days with no running so far this month. That's awesome. You'll get your groove back soon. Love that you saw the beaver. @kgirlhart Great running. That's some heat you are getting. Love the new shoes. @7lenny7 Sounds like a tough workout. Your pace is awesome. I, personally, love…
  • @Mari33a I hope you feel better. You did great to get out and do anything today, let alone over 3 miles! @7lenny7 Maybe you can't find your screwdrivers because they are all along the road. :lol: Great work on the fartleks. I love doing those. That rubber chicken looks terrified! Could be because it is missing it's legs.…
  • Kevin sounds like he's really smart @swenson19d . Glad he likes daycare too. Are you asking about my food or Tippy's? In any case, the answer is no. :lol: I did take a salad for lunch today, but wound up eating some of the extra food they had for the kids. It was kielbasa and baked ziti. Pasta....it's hard to pass up.
  • @swenson19d I hope you get some answers from your doctors. I think we all have a hard time with "how long ago" things happened and it seems to get worse as we age....at least for me. I'm glad Kevin likes the new toy. Tippy was never toy motivated. She has a couple that she plays with a little. Food on the other hand is a…
  • @Scott6255 Nice run. That's hot for 4am! @martaindale Sounds like your speed was perfect if you were not sure you could have done more. At least, that's my gage for those things.
  • @CMorning99 Sorry grey cat isn't feeling well again. I hope you can get him comfortable for a while longer. Sounds like things are moving along at the ranch. Everything just sounds so expensive. I hope you can get everything you need to done before Friday and have a great vacation.
  • @shanaber Your arm sounds so painful. I hope it calms down soon. It's so hard to not lift anything or reach for things. You do it automatically and then feel the pain and think, "Well, that wasn't good." or something worse. :wink: It sounds like you did good with food yesterday. I love pan roasted potatoes. I'm not a fan…
  • @yirara Oh no about the allergic reaction. I'm glad steroids got it under control. You're doing great with your running. I'm glad @mmckee1189 ! I worked until 3:15 today. When I got home I did my Foundation Run on the treadmill. I ran 30 minutes with the plan of keeping my HR under 143. I ran 5 min at 4.2 mph, intervals of…
  • @swenson19d That's some storm. Love the doggies playing. They have a nice big area to run in. I'm sure they enjoy that. I hope the doc added the others just to consult and help with your degenerative diseases. When do you see your doc again? I'm pretty sure @Avidkeo had CoVID and it hit her pretty hard, so she is…
  • Great run @martaindale . Glad you're legs are good today @polskagirl01 . It could be a combination of all of those things. I do take walk breaks when I run. That's supposed to help reduce the stress on your legs and I'm rarely sore.... not even after my horrible half last year.
  • Love the videos @shanaber ! I had to laugh when I read that Hobbes did really well until the video came out. Just like kids, they won't do what you want them to when you are trying to show someone else something cute they do. He did really good though. Sorry about your arm, again. I hope the PT has some answers for you…
  • I've read and hugged/liked as appropriate. My internet has been on and off - mostly off when I have the time to sit down and do things I need to do. I'm getting so tired of it, but no real alternatives. Anyway, you all are doing great! @polskagirl01 Awesome race! You did fantastic! @7lenny7 Great pictures and great…
  • @CMorning99 A couple of years ago when I had a mouse problem, I purchased these plug in mouse things. They have a constant bluish light and supposedly emit a sound that irritates them. Once I got them out of the house, I haven't had any more issues. So, I'm thinking it works. Hope what you bought does too. Glad your mood…
  • You are busy @swenson19d . Glad both dogs are home. Are you planning on spay and neuter for them? Glad you got meds for Maggie. Hope that helps. I had Mexican yesterday, so I'm right there with you with the weight gain. Mowing with the reel mower is great exercise. Glad you are getting out there and moving. Hope you get…
  • @shanaber Sounds like a nice day out for you and DH. You could have done a lot worse than a burger. I would have devoured the fries, but than anything potato is a weakness of mine.
  • I love those days when you feel so good that you just keep running @kgirlhart . Great run. Yeah for Sunny, a fox, and a sprinkler. Thanks @shanaber . I'm glad StoryWorth is worth it. I know I will have to help mom. When I told her about it she started writing down things she could remember. She's going to write them out…
  • @CMorning99 I balked at meds for depression for almost two years before I gave in. I forgot what I took, but they really were helpful. I was amazed that in about 4 days I was driving down the road and it was like a veil lifted. I just felt so much better just like that. And, it didn't make me a zombie. I still cried when I…
  • Nice running @martaindale ! Sounds like you have a great plan to deal with the heat. @eleanorhawkins It sounds like you are doing great, even if it doesn't feel like it. I'm glad you didn't feel threatened by the weirdo. That did remind me of a joke I heard where a lady was in the grocery store and a guy showed "it" to her…
  • @CMorning99 I would actually be surprised if you weren't depressed with all you have going on. Did you take a prescription back then? Would it help you now, if you did? Glad you took the hour to do something you wanted to do. @swenson19d I've always had an issue with salty, crunchy food...ie chips. If you read the original…
  • Thanks @polskagirl01 . Congrats on being able to run the 5k in under 30 minutes and good luck on your race tonight and the 24 hour race this weekend. Looking forward to the race reports. Thanks @Mari33a . Sounds like you had a great run in the rain, except for the wind.
  • @CMorning99 Sorry you are in a funk right now. I hope your vacation helps. The star challenge sounds interesting. Does everyone work on the same habit or do you pick your own? Thanks for the advice @swenson19d I'm hoping that exercising more is all I need. If I had the time, I would cook more. I know it's healthier and a…
  • Mom and I went out and cut and hauled the smaller cedar trees out of most of my hay field this morning. We still have a little bit to do. We were there for about 2.5 hours, but I only had my Garmin on when I was walking/cutting trees. I tried to turn it off when I was driving the Gator and unloading. So, actual "working"…
  • Thanks @Scott6255 ! Probably smart to choose the treadmill over heat and humidity. Thanks @eleanorhawkins ! I hope DH changes his mind.....and, of course you are going to be sore if you haven't done much and then exercise. It's part of it. :lol: I'll be interested to see how the Garmin coach goes. I had thought about it,…
  • @swenson19d Glad you are working with the trainer. That's one thing I loved about the trainer I had for Tippy. She mostly did house calls and worked with the owners too. She said it's better to let the owners see what needs to be done in their home with actual issues they need to work on. She was amazing. Also glad that…
  • Didn't get home from work until 6, so got out for a driveway run around 6:20. I walked a total of 0.65 miles for warm up and cool down at an average pace of 3.8 mph. Today's plan called for Fast Finish 3...5 min Zone 1, 20 min Zone 2, 10 min Zone 3. I was slow but my HR was pretty much spot on for the zones...if I let Zone…
  • @swenson19d Will the trainer work with you? Seems like she would want you to know how to reinforce Kevin's learning. Glad your recital is over. Also glad DH realizes he's not being very nice. How's his elbow?
  • @4ConniesHealth Are you injured or sick? Hope whatever it is you get back to running soon.
  • I walked a mile on the treadmill this afternoon since Sunday's are my rest days....not that I needed to rest today. I'm having a horrible start to my month, with only 9.10 miles out of the planned 80 so far. I'm sure I won't make my goal, but, if I can get most of my plans runs accomplished the rest of the month, I'll be…
  • That's hilarious. Yeah. My Garmin thinks I can run 5K in 29:27 minutes. My PR is 33:42 min. I'd love to think I could get under 30 minutes, but that is probably a pipe dream. Glad your husband went out with you today, even if it was nerve wracking. Maybe he'll learn before he trips and hurts himself. @martaindale Sounds…
  • @katharmonic Yes. Check out the race. It would be cool if we could meet in real life there. I want to do this race because I worked on Cape Canaveral when I was in the AF and my late husband's family live about an hour from there, so I can visit with them while I am there. I agree that overcoming the "I'm too…
