Hi everyone

Training has gone pretty well. Mileage wise it was a bit of a cut back week, but I did 3 quality workouts. The big one being Thursday when I ran 4 miles straight, a first for me. I posted it in another thread but Cleveland just announced a Rock N Roll half marathon for Oct. 2013. They had a great deal for the first 500 people so I bit the bullet and signed up 14 months before the race. Being and inagural race I hope it goes well.

That's really cool that you were one of the 1st 500 to sign up for the new Rock n Roll race! Go you!!!

I did 10 miles yesterday at 13:57 pace. Really working on slowing down my long runs so I don't feel so trashed afterwards. This was better. Humidity is killing me!!!

I submitted a picture of Zachary from the January kids' races to the Let the Memories Begin thing. Here's the link to him:

Cute picture Amanda. I know I'm going at least a minute slower this summer than I did this spring. Even though Galloway would recommend even a little bit slower on my long runs.

Jeremy-early registration saves money and sets another goal, good going.

Amanda-saw Zachary on the other thread. Great shot. Great job with the 10 miler.

Pam-stay with it. The swimming is my hardest but is also the coolest right now.

Jim-hot, sloppy and windy sounds very familiar to over on this side.

AFM-felt good after the 101 miler Tuesday. Got in 56 miles Thursday, 1,000 yds. swimming Friday, 57 miles Saturday immediately followed by a 4.2 miler that was really hot. Wanted to beat the heat today so I left the house at 2:51AM and did a combo of speed walking, jogging and a mile run for a 8 mile total. Then got Kathy and we did a 6 miler together. Her new shoes are doing great so far.

I can't get over the fact that John wakes up at 2:51am! And I complain about 5:30am...

Wow Zachary is a cute, Congrats to him on his "bling".

I'm keeping on for now- did 6 over the weekend (indoors- to humid and threatening rain) and ended up with about a 12:45 mile ave. Yesterday I did 4 (again indoors) and was just a bit faster so the running is going OK.

John~ you amaze me
DrMom~you too- 10 outdoors last weekend way to go

Looks like we're in for some cooler weather (and of course I'll be traveling) I hope the cooler catches me since I won't have an indoor place to run next week.

Happy trails (or runs)

Pam - Glad you're doing well with your running! And thanks for complimenting my little guy.

Is anyone running in any of the upcoming runDisney events? I can't remember who is where now....
I'm running ToT in September and then Goofy in January. Super excited for both events! I'm traveling child-free (and husband-free) for both and I'm staying with various runDisney friends. Should be a good time!

Amanda

Hi everyone.

This week was crazy with final exams. I did decide to do the 5 miler this morning in town. I ended up finishing in about 58:35. A little bit faster than my original goal. I posted a longer race report in the race report thread.

John - Hopefully I'll see you and Kathy at one or both of the events! I'm so excited to go solo. I have a different roommate for each weekend. I've never been able to just do what I want during one of these race weekends. It's so novel that I don't know what to think! And I'm super psyched that there are so many events the weekend of ToT due to Epcot's 30th anniversary. That'll be special.
Jeremy - CONGRATS on a great time!

I have a cold and haven't been feeling stellar this week. I'm grateful that I only need to run 3 miles this weekend (which I'll do tomorrow because I slept in a bit today). We head to Disney in 2 weeks for our annual vacation. We'll be staying off-site at Wyndham Bonnet Creek to save some money (I got a 2 bedroom villa for $120 per night!). It looks like they have some decent running paths. It won't be the same as running on the Boardwalk or at Fort Wilderness but it's so worth saving the money.

Amanda

Happy Wednesday Warriors!!

It has been a TOTALLY unproductive few days down here!!

For The first time ever in over 12 years on the job, I got SICK from a patient!!

This is how I felt ----> :s ick:

I thought I had gotten a bad meal on the road somewhere when I found out another member of my crew called out sick w/the same signs/symptoms. Being the smart guy I am, I added 2 and 2 and actually came up with 4. Didn't eat for 2 days. Felt like I had a hangover from a 2 day drunkfest (not that I know what THAT is like............) and had severe (!!!!!!!!!!) GI distress (& we know what that means.......)

NOW I have managed to contract a mild summer cold. Not bad, but enough to know it's there. So, wisely (beleive it or not) I just decided to do N-O-T-H-I-N-G until I am truly over everything. Maybe a day or 2 more.

On a better note, I have a line on possibly getting my hands on a really great quality, gently used Tri bike. Will find out tomorrow if it's what I want/need. Here's hoping!!

Keep at it Warriors!!! We who are too sick and feeble to train salute you!!

Jim, real sorry about the down time. Glad this stuff doesn't transmit over the net.

Sounds way cool about the bike. What might it be?

Hi all

It sounds like several of us are on the temporary disabled list. I've had some minor knee issues. It hasn't completely sidelined me but it's cut back on my mileage. I was supposed to do 11 last weekend but ended up doing the race instead. Amanda and Jim hope you feel better soon. Jim hope the bike works out for you.

I'm sorry you were so sick Jim! Take care of yourself!!!! Good luck with the bike.
Jeremy - I'm sorry your knee is bothering you. Take care!

I've had a very rough few weeks at work - culminating in having the parent of a patient steal my iPhone during office hours yesterday. I just can't believe it. I'm scheduled for 11 miles this weekend so hopefully I'll find time to make it happen, especially since we have a lot going on...

Amanda
