Give Aways, Work Outs, and Randoms

Hey everyone, go check out Tall Mom On The Run's blog for an awesome give away!!

Update on the calf: I woke up this morning with pretty much no pain. Typically, it's tight in the morning, but loosens up throughout the day. This morning was the best it has felt first thing in quite awhile. I go back to Dr Jesse Walden again tonight and will hopefully go on my last run tonight before the HM - ONLY 3 DAYS AWAY!!!!

Last night I had every intention of hitting the pool for some laps (have I mentioned that April is half over and I have not swam this month AT ALL!?!?!?!), but it was a hectic night with Rylie having gymnastics and Randy trying to finish up our taxes, so I never made it there. I did, however, get in a nice little bike ride after work before Rylie got home from school. It was so beautiful out, so I got in a quick 8 miles before Ry's bus arrived. Now, I use the term "quick" loosely...cuz our neighborhood is so darn hilly that 8 miles took me a good 40 minutes. :\ So it was a good workout, even if it didn't involve that many miles.

Wednesday, April 15, 2009: muscle conditioning, 8 mile bike ride

Random question of the day: do you ever happen to think of something funny while you're out running (or cycling) alone and start laughing to yourself...and then wonder what passers-by must think when they see you running down the street laughing? This happens to me all the time...LOL.

I ride the stationary bike at the gym and listen to my iPod, mostly podcasts. The one podcast that makes me laugh out load all the time is Steve Runner's Phedippidations podcast. I'm sure people wondering what I'm laugh at.

Thanks for the props on the Giveaway. So maybe my math is off but isn't 8 miles in 40 minutes 5 minute mile pace??? That would be "quick"... Hmmmm??

Wow 3 days, you will be great, adrenalin will take you there.

Umm, I'm sure you aren't surprised here, but YES, I laugh to myself ALL THE TIME when I run alone. And sometimes I use my horrid singing skills too. I'll have to send you a link to one of my posts about getting a look while singing to myself.

Yes I'm from Emporia!! I don't know how we haven't figured that out yet. Did you go to h.s. there? You would have only been a couple of years ahead of me.

ps - I can personally verify that FWR is, in fact, a DORK. ;)
