  1. Just got back from a two week cruise. Does lifting a fork to my mouth several times a day count as a workout???

      depends on how heavy the fork is!

      Jaydub, it was truly amazing. Slow going (very slow) at times because some parts were straight up! Coming down was a whole different story...so nice to finally get to use a different muscle group, but the scree was so slippery, it was quite scary at times. Poles next time for sure!

      I hear you on the whole training bit. I am just training for a half and the miles are great for one thing, but the whole "Training" concept really gets to you. A part of me can not wait until after the race to just run for the pure enjoyment of it. Hit the Trails. Best wishes. How did the race go?

      Hi Kenley,

      Thanks for the note. You are so right- I can't wait to run for "fun" again. I survived the marathon but I am not very pleased with my time at all, which is exactly why I have not posted here. I have just been in "mourning" over the entire race. Hopefully I will get everything all updated tomorrow, but suffice it to say, I did not make my time goal...hopefully will write about it in my blog tomorrow. My quads are still hurtin' really badly...but hey, the medal is very purdy!

      Thanks everyone!!! John M. & Nicki- I take Carb Boom electrolyte drink and their gel as well. I found Gatorade always gave me such bad heartburn! I drink lots when I run so I don't know if it is lack of electrolytes-probably just lack of fitness!!

      Mark C.- two more weeks of Yassos. This Sunday is our last really long LSD...32km on Sunday, then it goes down to 23km, then 16km, then marathon. We'll have to see if I can do 10 Yassos two weeks from now. That would be so great if it is accurate!

      Duane D.- Yasso 800s, named for Bart Yasso. Google it and you can see how they are to be done properly. It is supposed to be a pretty good indicator of your predicted marathon time (in ideal circumstances, of course) but they must be done properly, and in conjunction with good overall marathon training to be accurate.
