Murray, good plan bringing those water shoes. Good job with the 8.33 and 9.25 km's.

Coffeenut, good job with the 4 miler, weights, and 7 miler.

Topspin, good job with the boat.

Tres, can't wait for your race on Sat.

Tippingpoint, good job with the 6k. Beautiful pictures of your trip.

R4R, good job shaving that minute off your time.

Insertnamehere, good job with the 5 1/2 miles.

Geralt, good job with the 25 km on the bike and weights. Congrats on the job!

Tom, good job with the 20 miles on the island. Got a kick out of that cat and mouse game you played with that other rider.

Stillsleeping, good job with the sleeping and work. Sounds like you're due for a run.

Piotr, good job with the 40 min swim.

Ghostly, good job with the squats, presses...I say go for it on your roof!

Change4good, welcome.

M1K1, welcome. Good comeback after that 25 year lay off.

Inparticular, nice 30 min jog through those woods. I put 2 heaping teaspoons of Folgers instant coffee in a 16 oz mug and fill up the mug with boiling water every morning. After that no more coffee for the rest of the day.

These auto insurance rates are outrageous - especially since my 16 yr old son is on our policy. To lower prices, thinking about raising the deductible on collision and comprehensive and getting rid of the extras such as road trouble service, increased rental reimb, auto loan/ lease. Otherwise just working hard, remembering to take it one day at a time.

Did 21 min of active cardio on TR evening. Treadmill/boxing/stationary bike.

Jogged on treadmill for 5 min at 6.1 mph. Then put on bag gloves and hit the heavy bag for three - 2 min rounds with 1 min rest between rounds. Then onto stationary bike for 10 min averaging 85 rpm's at resistance level 15.

Welcome Change 4 Good, seanie, Mark and M23! Awesome to see new people joining the fray!

Ghost, yes I do think you should shout from the rooftops. But then...your neighbors probably wouldn't see anything unusual about that at all?!

InP: I drink way too much coffee. And I don't care. Probably half a pot in the morning and then pop all afternoon. The weekends are even worse.

Still: That is some commute! My gosh! Waaaaaaait, I see you are quitting....I think that's gonna give you a lot of peace!

Tipping: I like your attitude. At some point, partying with friends becomes....well...boring! It's like, 'really,we're gonna sit here and watch who can make the bigger ass of themself?'.

Uncle: The way you mix up your work outs, has got to be a huge fat burner!

Hi Tom, Top and Judy! Where is R4R? And where the heck is My G?

Celebrated a beautiful spring days by running 8. I'm needing to bump myself back to 10 (my favorite distance)...and yesterday was the perfect day to put it in motion.

Welcome Springtime!

Have a Great Day, all!

Hi M1, 1888 and C4 (nice pics... what I feel like also)!

Well, so much for my two runs planned for today... cold and rainy and I got really stuffed up yesterday afternoon. Fighting a cold I think.... lots of zinc, vit C and Theraflu cold for me today and probably tomorrow.

Besides, I really have to get some stuff done... I found out I have absolutely no jeans that fit me right since I lost weight. Nice, but off to the thrift store I go!

Well, caffeine... I have one lone cup of coffee in the morning... and a cup of tea after lunch -- if I'm doing something in the evening, I have a coke zero or soft drink with caffeine. That's it... anymore and the people around me would hogtie me and throw me in the closet I'm naturally hyper.

Anywho... I really have to spend today and tomorrow getting ready for our trip.
Have a happy day everyone!

My all day work session (yes on a Saturday) at the office was interrupted at 2:00 PM by a tele-call from the wife. She wanted to go for a walk. A walk? You mean like an exercise walk with running shoes, shorts, fresh air, sun, non stop for an hour, someplace colorful, animated, type of walk? Yep (but with the animated part a bit exaggerated). When do I ever say no to a fresh air walk?

Did about 1.5 hours along the bay followed by an early dinner at her favorite deli (we do have more than just fish tacos here)...... Not exactly "cardio" in my book, but nice change of pace and a colorful way to break up the day.

Back to the drawing board..... Hoping everyone had an equally colorful day.... TdC.

Wow you guys. What a day.

Took one of my dogs for a trail walk. Then home to mow and do other yard work. Then did my Sunday cooking a day early. Then the kitchen sink got plugged up.

So, took some of it apart, while I had three totally different meals going. Wasn't able to get it unclogged...it was plugged deep, into the main pipe. Water wasn't even draining a little. Actually called a plumber who wasn't able to make it. Then called someone for some recommendations.

Went to the store and got some draino...hate using chemicals like that. For 12 bucks, also got a balloon thing you hook up to a hose, shove in the pipe, and its supposed to force water through. WORKED AWESOME! No mess, didn't have to use chemicals, and saved a lot of $. Plus don't have to rearrange things to get someone here.

Seriously y'all...It was an exhausting day. Now chillin like a villain.

My race day was not at all like I planned. My psyche and energy level was just off. I am still trying to figure out why. I ended up crashing on my bike at mile 8. For some reason the minute i got on the bike after the swim my legs would not move. I tried everything. Its like they were bricks and my bike felt like it was a Mack truck that I was trying to pedal. Everyone was passing me. Young, old, and old fat guys on mountain bikes...it was horrible. I was lightheaded and was too close to the right side curb. There was a drainage gutter with a large metal grate. I saw it and told myself to move away, but couldn't. My front tire slipped into a slat in the grate and I flew forward over my handle bars. I landed on my forearms. My back tire flew off and over my head. I was not really injured, just some road rash with bleeding. My ego was crushed. I obviously did not finish and got to meet some lovely firemen that cleaned me up and gave me a ride back to the finish.

So, I have been critically evaluating everything I did prior to the race. I think my calorie intake was too lowlw. My prerace hydration was off. The lake water was chilly. Maybe my core temp dropped?

We were also late to the race, my anxiety was high, I lost my timing chip at the last minute and they were issuing me another...then they found my chip. I had three different race numbers marked on my arm and leg, I looked like a bad tatoo artist had gotten a hold of me. I had four minutes only to set up my bike and gear in the transition area. No warm up time, and into the water with a streesed out mind.

Also the eve before the race I was checking out the lakes temp and my cell phone fell out of my shirt pocket and dropped in the water. It was just one of those days.

I went to get some hydration at the finish line and there was a HUGE barrel of beer. Its the first drink I saw...didn't have one tho. Got some drink, ice for my wounds. Encouraged my friends and then had a fabulous breakfast. Came home and had a big fat nap.

Chalk it up to experience. My ego is hurt, but I will get over it.

Gotta see if my bikes is OK. Hubby thinks it will be fine. Thank God I wasn't wearing clips.

It could have been worse and tomorrow is a new day.

Oh Tres...... Sounds terrible. Glad you are OK. I hope the road rash is not too deep. Please look into best way to take care of it. The discomfort usually gets worst after 3 or 4 days and some can leave to scaring that will not go away for quite a while. I've always been too stubborn to seek professionally help and still have some signs of my various war wounds. Glad to know you had paramedics clean it up for you. I'm sure than you will bounce back before you know it. I feel your pain. Take care...... TdC.

Tres, I'm so sorry! Man, you've been looking forward to that for so long. Your attitude is fantastic though - you're a real inspiration, girl. Haha! Inspiration Girl!



Worst I came off my bike was hitting a patch of black ice at the bottom of the incline under the city bridge in Lancaster. Broke my kneecap, ugh. Took literally years to heal properly and I still get some aches in the winter.

My run this morning was AWESOME!! Beat my PB by 0.5. 0.5!!!, and a sprint on the tarmac at the end. Feel totally absolved for my complete lack of doing anything except emotionally wrestling problem teens all week. Plus, right, within ten minutes of getting home it's completely mashing it down. SO if I hadn't got up at five, I'd have been caught in it. And you all know how I feel about rain. My day rocks!

Real, I'm with you on the caffeine - two coffees first thing (we get up at 04:30. even I need a boost) but the rest of the day, I'm not even allowed sugar. I'd be climbing the walls man :P


Oh it's nice to be back. Love y'all. Bye till next weekend I guess...

xx

Hey KWTCP - aka... kickers who throw cow poop

Nice work on the drain Ghost... I'll have to remember that balloon thing next time ours gets plugged. Glad you got out to the trails though...

Tres... Maybe you just weren't meant to do that one... or maybe you just had a bad day. Sometimes we can do everything right and still have a bad day.

Nice pic Still and congrats on your PR !!!!!

Rainy and cold here yesterday and today. I do have a cold and want it to get better before we leave on Friday morning.

Tom, nice you're wife wanted to walk with you!!!
Fish taco's -- we'll have to try them! We're actually staying the first night at Dana Point. Then heading off to Fontana sometime Saturday. I'm kind of getting excited... mostly because I saw that I can climb (really, it's a hike) to the summit of Mt. Baldy (aka. Mount San Antonio). Gotta do that! Since going to the base camp of Mt. Ranier a few years ago... I'm hooked on mountains. Ohio just doesn't have any

Ok, gotta go... love y'all -- busy day.

Hey Tres-at least you were out there doing it. That in itself is a victory. Shake it off!
R4R-I looove mountains, too! I lived in the Rockies near Lake Louise for about a year and would climb mountains on my days off----there is no feeling like standing at the top of a mountain. Now I go hiking whenever I get the chance--last one was the Big Chief in Squamish-a two hour hand over foot climb to the top--it was awesome. I don't get to go nearly enough, and I'm surrounded by mountains. I think this summer is going to be different than summers past- a lot more time to spend planning and doing hikes-less time hungover.
I actually went to the GYM yesterday--I hate the gym and almost never go, but yesterday I got the urge and did a workout on my arms and some legs.
Maybe I'll start going more regularly, hmmm.....
I have to say I'm feeling a lot healthier lately. I haven't eaten wheat in about two months and am cutting back on my dairy pretty significantly-no small feat for me cause I luuuv my cheese. But I feel lighter for it.
My exercise today will be digging in a lady's backyard for four hours---she's got the worst bluebell infestation I've ever seen-ugh.

Oh yeah thanks for all the responses to my coffee poll! I'm cutting down to one iced coffee in the morning---and that's it. Compared to my pretty much steady intake all day I think it should make a difference in my anxiety levels which can be pretty silly sometimes.

Have a great Sunday everybody.

Had a nasty fall from my bicycle today. Must be the KA crash day

Finally some warmer weather and went with my daughter on a bicycle ride. Nice ride on a bike route along the beach - sun shining. Bliss. Stopped for a coffee at a place with a beautiful view. Coming back it started to drizzle and a cold wind picked up. She got tired, so escorted her to a bus stop to go home. Still felt like riding so went on an "exploration" ride to the town center. Never done it before and due to lack of bike lanes had to ride on the street - its prohibited here to ride on sidewalks. On the main street, wanted to take a turn for a shortcut to the beach and hit a long ditch between road and sidewalk. Flew off the bike on my side and stopped after 1,5 m of scrapping the road. Shocked. Had bike gloves on so didn't scrape my hands but the thin riding jacket did not cushion the slide on my forearm and jeans did a slightly better job of cushioning my knee. Bike survived. Blood from the scrapes on my jacket and jeans.

This was km 28 and still 5 from home. Found a bench - licked my wounds, ate a chocolate bar my daughter declined, updated my facebook page -no joking, that would probably be what my children would do Aching, slowly got home.

Tres - I can feel your pain.

Ghost - for unclogging drains I use this long spring device used by plumbers. One person turns the handle at the end of it and another forces it into the drain. Hard, messy work but gets the job done.

Piotr and Tres: Oh, jeeze! I'm sorry for your crashes. Hope you're both healing well.

R4R: Safe travels to you. Have a Blast!

Tom: Love walking w/my hubby. Sometimes we don't even say a word....just nice to 'be'.

Ghost: Glad you got your plumbing mess taken care of. If there is one unwelcome job in our home, it's plumbing. Always seems to entail more than you thought it would.

Newatthis: Welcome!

Hi Inparticular!

Hoping to get a few milers in later today. Nice day, here!

Have a Great Day!

Sometimes that's the best kind of walk one can have with their SO.

That fall sucks Piotr. Way to suck it up and get home. I've used a snake to clear drains before, and tried again on the one last night. Hit a 90 degree angle I couldn't get by. The balloon did better than that and made no mess.

Congrats on the sober time Newatthis. Look forward to hearing more from you.

Have fun R4R!

And OUCH big time for you Piotr. Not a good day for our KA two wheelers.

Well I for one did not fall from my bike...... cause I never got on it. Big fog bank early this morning. I skipped the time trial planned for today and spend my early morning fooling with the mountain bike instead.

Today was the twice a year swap meet at out local velodrome. Got there right before they opened at 8 and surprised to see a line of 400 to 500 people waiting to get in. Have not been to it in a few years. They had really expensive high end stuff (I don't need another pair of $2,500.00 wheels) and real cheap stuff (no thanks, the $10.00 shorts wont last more than two rides).

What I went for was to get needed replacement parts for the mountain bike. I have not used it much in years, but want to fix it so I can take it on my trip to Sedona. Got a rear cassette for $10.00, a new chain for 12.00, brake cables for 5.00 bucks and a tool bag to replace the one in my road bike that is starting to rip. All along I got over $200.00 worth of stuff for no more than 50.00 including the $5.00 admission. Fun way for me to spend the morning.

Afterwards, picked up the wife and we did an hour's walk at the lake. Two days in a row. Sorry guys.... we do talk. We get along just fine.

Time to get my salmon and chicken breasts on the grill. Later..... TdC.
