  1. RUN
    Road Run with Matt 9.32 mi 01:39 10:39 pace

    This went MUCH better than my last run outside (the 20 miler on Monday). That's what an extra 10 degrees will do for you, plus maybe having some company. I'd say the distance had someth... read more

    I had to modify a few things. My old cat always comes first, though!!!

  3. FIT
    Yoga 00:25

    I did a series of poses that are supposed to prepare you for doing the splits. I have a long ways to go before I can do the splits (again - I used to be able to), but this was a good back, hamstri... read more

    NTC 00:22

    I did 2 separate Nike Training Club workouts for a total of 22 minutes. Weighted with a 15 pound kettlebell whenever I could.

  5. VELO
    Trainer 3 mi 00:15:00 12.0mph pace

    I was just aiming for 30 minutes of cardio today, so between this and the run, I got it.

  6. RUN
    Treadmill 1.32 mi 00:15:00 11:21 pace

    Things are feeling better each day. I take so long to recover from hard/long runs. Sucks to get old. Just when I said to myself yesterday at work, "oh. My knee feels better!" I felt a... read more

      Nice workouts today Kim! You are not a hypochondriac at all, the strangest pains flare up when we least expect them. Foam and ice should do the trick!

    Yoga 00:15:00

    I was able to get deeper into the poses today, so it is improving. Lots of foam rolling, too.

  8. RUN
    Treadmill 6.2 mi 01:12 11:34 pace

    Things are starting to feel better, but I am still really stiff and a bit sore yet. Also still run down, but not sick. I didn't try to perform any tricks today. :-) Have a good Thursday!

    Yoga 00:45

    I ended up doing more yoga than I planned, just because it was something that actually felt good! I did this for part of it, and it was great: read more

  11. VELO
    Trainer 4 mi 00:20 12.0mph pace

    It's something, I guess. :-D

  12. RUN
    Treadmill 2.51 mi 00:30 11:57 pace

    Slow and easy. And short. I'm still sore but the run didn't seem to bother me. I chose the treadmill for the soft surface and also so I could just jump off if I needed to stop.

      Nice run Kim. I hope you feel better soon! That off feeling is awful, nothing specific, just not right. Ughhh... :(

      Supposedly your immune system is really low right after a marathon and I'm sure heading back and forth from cold to warm to cold again didn't help. Stay healthy!

      The yoga sounds good. Hopefully the hip will settle down and Matt's sickness will pass through you quickly!

      Matt's been joking that he's in the Bargain Bin because he just feels about "20% off". That's about how I feel too. :-) (I told him to let me know when he's half off because then I'll buy!)

      Nice stretch out, Kim. I'm always feeling run down, probably because I now work at the school and around all the children:-)

    This entire run was a struggle for me, and I've been trying to come up with something positive to say. OK: 1. I wanted to quit multiple times, but I didn't. 2. It's over.

      Holy cow. You are a warrior!!! Negativity, shmegativity, this is freaking awesome. I know it felt crappy, I know it hurt, I know it was kinda exactly the opposite of what you wanted. But SO much strong mental game going on here! This will all serve you so well come Phoenix (and well beyond!). And, um, you did just Sub-2 and all that... ;-) Love you Kim, you are such a bright shining spot in my life.

      I'm the oddball at my gym. Or at least it's been pointed out to me more than once that I am the only woman anyone ever sees on the rower. :-D
