Is everyone waiting for someone else to start the dailies?

11.5 this morning, including the equivalent of 100 flights of stairs. Hilly course.
Parent - - By tritri Date 2017-06-10 5:35 PM
:cool:  That's a lot of hills!
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-06-11 12:47 PM
And a lot of steps.:shocker!:

I would've started a thread, but I didn't have the time!  I was up at 05:30 and out the door at 06:00 for a long run.  When I got home I had to hop in the shower, grab breakfast, then head out for a family picnic.  I ran 15.7 and it was kinda :meh:.  The first hour was ok, but it kept getting hotter and I kept getting slower.  I really wanted to collapse for a while after the run, but no chance for that.  Funny thing that happened on the run: about 13.5 miles in I stopped for a minute because I was feeling mostly dead by that point.  A sheriff's deputy coming down the road made a u-turn to ask me if I was tired of running yet because he had passed me running two hours ago. :laugh:
Parent - - By Arimathea [us] Date 2017-06-10 5:29 PM
:laugh: I take it he only runs if something big is chasing him or if he's doing department required training.
Parent - By swandive Date 2017-06-10 6:37 PM
Not sure.  He asked if I was training for a marathon and I said "no, I'm just running" and followed up with saying that I'd been out since 6am and only had a couple of miles to go.  He said something along the lines of "more power to you."  He at least knows that "marathon" = running a long time, so maybe he wasn't totally clueless.
Parent - - By tritri Date 2017-06-10 5:35 PM
:cool:  Always great when the same person sees you still running 2 hours later!
Parent - - By swandive Date 2017-06-10 6:40 PM
Definitely a nice pick-me-up for a few minutes!
Parent - By Arimathea [us] Date 2017-06-10 11:01 PM
Or a hopeful pickup line...
Parent - - By runningteach [us] Date 2017-06-10 6:06 PM
:laugh: That's great!
Parent - By swandive Date 2017-06-10 6:43 PM
I'll see sheriffs out while I'm running, but don't pay enough attention to car numbers to notice if I'm seeing the same one regularly.  There aren't many runners on the road around here so I figure there are likely more people who see me as a "regular" than I realize.

Totally funny on the sheriff!  That has happened to me, too.  We live in the middle of nowhere, but on a county highway that is regularly patrolled.  My best run-in with Johnny Law was when a deputy asked me if I had seen "about 30 horses that were reported missing":laugh:

You probably were tired of running, but of course that doesn't mean you have to stop.: pbbt:
Parent - - By runningteach [us] Date 2017-06-10 6:04 PM Edited 2017-06-10 6:07 PM
I road on the trainer for 30 minutes because I felt some pain in my ankle and I don't want to go backwards. I'm think it is more muscle or ligaments, but don't know. I'm sure it is typical to have that. It felt ok the rest of the day. I went to a quilt show and the quilts were inspiring. I was a little disappointed in the vendors, as I intended to buy fabric, but didn't see much. I did buy a kit for a bird wall hanging. Then I went to Knit in Public Day at my local knitting store. Knit with friends and enjoyed the day. I needed it. Came home to an empty house and cleaned up. Now I am weaving and relaxing. Two crazy people(DH and friend)in my life drained me, but I am feeeling good about myself. Big accomplishment of the day was bringing my ac unit up from the basement and installing it.:cool: it may have fell out the window once, but it's in.:blush:Also tweaked my hamstring and back a little, but it was worth it. It is getting hot here and I can't sleep in the heat.
Parent - By Arimathea [us] Date 2017-06-10 11:02 PM
If you don't like what fabric you see, don't buy it. There is plenty more on sale somewhere!
Parent - By tritri Date 2017-06-11 7:32 AM
I hope your back and hammies forgive you!
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-06-11 12:51 PM
That's always a good  feeling. Succeeding at something you are not sure you can do.
Parent - - By gophergirl [us] Date 2017-06-10 9:05 PM
12 miles and it was hot and windy! Started at 5am and already near 80 :cry: The heat is rough, took a nap afterwards!
Parent - By Arimathea [us] Date 2017-06-10 11:02 PM
Hotter in MN than in CA? Weird weather indeed.
Parent - By tritri Date 2017-06-11 8:55 AM
:shocker!::cry:
Parent - By prairierunner [us] Date 2017-06-11 9:47 AM
This weekend weather completely blows!  We ended up running at the gym b/c it was too windy to run outside:sad:
Parent - By swandive Date 2017-06-11 12:44 PM
That's awful. :cry:
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-06-11 12:52 PM
Heat can really drain you.
Parent - - By prairierunner [us] Date 2017-06-11 9:49 AM
10 easy miles at the gym yesterday, XT today.  Ran a decent half in May, now in a training holding pattern until late summer.  Running feels good, and DH and I are contemplating a full next year.
Parent - By runningteach [us] Date 2017-06-11 11:31 AM
Which full?
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-06-11 12:52 PM
Glad you are feeling good.
Parent - - By runningteach [us] Date 2017-06-11 11:30 AM
30 minutes on the trainer this morning. I want to run again, but I'm being good. I might try biking outside at the end of the week. My hamstring and back survived lugging the ac unit around. I did some chores this morning and will relax the rest of the day. It is going to be hot today, so I'm glad I'm staying inside. I can't believe school will be out in 2 weeks. This week is my last full week of school and then I have a short week the following week.
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-06-11 12:53 PM
I guess the ankle feels better?
Parent - - By runnertype [us] Date 2017-06-11 12:05 PM
5.5 outside, 80 something with building humidity. Kind of a slog. Still on 2 antibiotics and not feeling stellar, but glad I got something in.
Parent - By swandive Date 2017-06-11 12:45 PM
Ugh, that's nasty weather.
Parent - By prairierunner [us] Date 2017-06-11 1:11 PM
DH and I were just wondering how the gym can be sooooo humid?!  It is just gross.  Hope you start feeling better soon.
Parent - - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-06-11 1:02 PM
Ran 9 yesterday (after that the day was nonstop except for a nap).:blush:

Today 5 with the Sunday group. New restaurant location and a super cool route through a scenic park. Glad I broke with tradition and glad the group went with it. Everyone raved about how fun it was AND as a bonus it was very easy to set up and tear down.:grin:

I also emailed the store owner about an event idea I have that will require some sponsor participation. Kept it upbeat and nonwhiney so we'll see if they'll help me do it.
Parent - - By prairierunner [us] Date 2017-06-11 1:10 PM
I want to move to KC just so I can join your running group(s)!!  The idea of running then eating/socializing sounds awesome.  Kudos to you for taking on a leadership role to keep the group going.:cool:
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-06-11 6:27 PM
Thank you. I posted last week about some of my discouragement with running the group. I really started to realize I enjoy doing it, there were just some days it was less fun than others. I started to think in terms of what was under my control  I might want to change rather than what was "wrong" I couldn't control.  Such metaphor for most things.: pbbt:

NRR here
Parent - - By Arimathea [us] Date 2017-06-10 3:40 PM
And picked 12 boxes of oranges, about 480-500 pounds, for the food pantry. The quarantine is over!
Parent - By tritri Date 2017-06-10 5:34 PM
:shocker!::shocker!:
Parent - - By runningteach [us] Date 2017-06-10 6:04 PM
Wow! That's a lot of picking!
Parent - - By Arimathea [us] Date 2017-06-10 11:03 PM
I had a 5 person crew, it wasn't just me.

Still, that is quite a bit, and we still didn't strip the trees. We were proud of ourselves!
Parent - By runnertype [us] Date 2017-06-11 12:07 PM
Nice job!
Parent - By gophergirl [us] Date 2017-06-11 7:03 AM
Wow! A lot of oranges.
Parent - - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-06-11 7:20 PM
Oranges are a good snack. Do they keep well?
Parent - By Arimathea [us] Date 2017-06-11 10:27 PM
Yes, they'll be fine for Monday and several days at least after they're distributed.
Parent - - By Mickey [ca] Date 2017-06-10 5:18 PM
just too busy today - shopping - taxi service - more shopping - packing up stuff - coming up with fun things for summer camp care packages (first sleep-away camp is in two weeks! :shocker!:)
Parent - - By Arimathea [us] Date 2017-06-10 5:29 PM
What's recommended for care packages? A book? Sunscreen? Lip balm? Is this OG?
Parent - - By Mickey [ca] Date 2017-06-10 7:29 PM
Both kids will be going to different sessions at the same camp.  I usually do silly stuff - glow bracelets,  tattoos, etc.  I'm making little magnetic camp scenes with pieces to move around.  Might make thumbprint journals & send with a little ink pad to collect friends' thumbprint & stories
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-06-11 7:19 PM
Sounds very fun and thoughtful .
Parent - By runningteach [us] Date 2017-06-10 6:05 PM
You were busy!
Parent - - By tritri Date 2017-06-10 5:39 PM
The swelling in the knees from Sundays excess lasted through Wednesday, with PT on M and W.  Then I got disciplined and started riding a reasonable number of miles each day.  I did 19.2 today, and now I am on 52.8 for the week.  Will do the same tomorrow.  Beautiful day!  Great views of the entire front range.  Saw some snowy egrets flying; usually they stand around.  I braved the biggest hill and then later went up the scenic hill for the first time since the surgery, just to see the views.  :cool:  Later DH called and really bonked on his ride, so I went to pick him up.  97 degrees...  Ooph!
Parent - - By runningteach [us] Date 2017-06-10 6:05 PM
I love reading about your riding and seeing your pictures!
Parent - By tritri Date 2017-06-10 8:24 PM
Thanks!
Parent - - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-06-11 7:21 PM
What mileage are you trying to stay with?
Parent - - By tritri Date 2017-06-12 6:16 PM
19.2 was OK, but 20.4 was too much.  : pbbt:  So, < 20, I guess.  Just whatever the knees will do and let me do PT and maybe walk.  And this is all in the 13-14 mph range and climbing tiny hills like they are mountains, and not accelerating. Even a little acceleration causes pain.  It's a long, slow process...
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-06-12 8:07 PM
Yes it is.:meh:
Parent - - By prairierunner [us] Date 2017-06-11 9:56 AM
OK, so I have been MIA for about a hundred years.  Life has been completely crazy for the past 2 months, and now things are finally levelling off.  All good, mind you, just busy.

DH has a new job.  Things are good and he is adjusting well.

DS graduated and we took him to new student orientation last week.  He is registered for fall classes, has his student ID, and is officially a college student:shocker!:

DD had a spectacular spring semester, despite having to withdraw from Algebra.  She is repeating it online as we speak.  She got herself a spring/summer job at a local nursery that she loved.  She is going to spend a month with my mom/stepdad and my in-laws this summer. 

All in all, life is good!
Parent - - By runningteach [us] Date 2017-06-11 11:32 AM
Congratulations to DS! I can't believe he will be in college. I am feeling old! Is DD still getting migranes?
Parent - By prairierunner [us] Date 2017-06-11 1:08 PM
Yes, she still gets migraines:cry:  Had an appointment with her neurologist at Mayo Clinic in March, and she is doing as well as she can do.:roll:  On the bright side, she has a cocktail of meds that work well, she can feel the migraine coming on and can get meds on board before it gets bad, and can sleep it off within a few hours.  Thankfully her migraines are not debilitating, and she knows how to manage them.
Parent - By runnertype [us] Date 2017-06-11 12:06 PM
Nice to see you!
Parent - By swandive Date 2017-06-11 12:45 PM
Sounds like the prairie family is doing well. :cool:
