Copying my last post from yesterday:

Jess...I am happy you got in a good 16 miler today even thought the weather was a huge factor. I have done some long training runs in the rain myself and the good thing is, it does make you strong.. ..can you carry your cell phone when you run?

Cathy...yes new toys are s fun. I didn't even see any 201's or 301's my search went right to the 205 or 305 so i just tried to find the best price. I know you had some trouble hooking up to your PC...maybe and upgrade to the 205 would be good?...

Elaine..yes the 305 does have a HRM, I wouldn't have gotten the Garmin without that..I am at a loss with your brother's gift? A favorite food? A favorite movie on DVD? Good luck on the 20...I'll be pulling for you...

Christine..I am so jealous!!! You get to run on the beach!!! I got a great price on the Garmin $273.95 total... they normally sell for $349..I love you got your step ordered.

Wendy..yes I caved and got the Forerunner. I kept having these battery issues with the Timex GPS's...and the Garmin I got has a rechargable lithium battery... ..not a bad time on that 5K course. My advice would be to take it easy on the first hill and after you warm up, go with the flow. Running with a friend from class once a week will be great!!

I finished my workout and did some Yardmax.

I am going to do a 15 mile run with a friend today. A mix of pavement and trails.

Have a great day...

Good morning, all! It's an overcast and dreary-looking Sunday here in southern NJ.

Slept in a little "late" today and am unsure what's on the agenda for today. Will play by ear. I signed up for a 5K this coming Thursday night - it's the first one I've done in years. It'll be fun to get back into those.

Carole :: I thought about the upgrade but then concluded that, as far as I can tell (not having SEEN the Garmin program), I don't really *need* to track my mileage through the PC. Generally, I jot down info about my runs in my daily planner and I also use fitday. So, I dunno...when you get yours hooked up, tell me if you think I'm really missing out and I may change my mind.

Looking for some input on which Cathe (or other) DVD to get next...
Currently I have:
GS Legs
Core Max
Stretch Max (on the way)
(Let me also mention that Jari Love's Get Ripped to the Core and Slim & Lean are on the way, too.)

I was thinking of SS/PP, BC/ME, and/or Kick Max. Thoughts? I am looking to burn fat & sculpt muscle. I can't do complicated step and try not to do too much high impact (bugs my knees). Any recommendations from the cheetahs would be much appreciated!!

Have a great day, ladies!

Hi Cheetahs!
I had the world's busiest day yesterday and Friday night. I spent hours on the phone talking to my mom and brother (who both just happened to call, lol), and then DH and I went to an estate and antique auction, continuing the search for furniture. And, all the cheetah vibes must have helped because we came home with an amazing matching overstuffed sofa and chair, an antique chestnut dresser, a oak bed frame, and other miscellaneous items. WHOOHOO!!! And we spent only $300 dollars on all of it! Could not be happier:7
Then, my parents came to visit yesterday, and we still had to pick up the rest of the furniture.
Today is (finally) a rest day, and it's pouring!:-( But DH and I have to go buy a lawnmower today not matter what b/c DH starts his new teaching job tomorrow.

Oh and just in case anyone wants to try this devilish mishmosh, KM w/u and Blast challenge, LoMax Blasts only premix, then KPC High Intensity drills only, KPC abs, and stretch. Warning: only if your legs are feeling fresh}(

Cathy-I'm here but just barely. Good luck on the upcoming 5k! I vote for BC/ME. It's worth it for the premixes alone! ME is probably my favorite all body weight workout and BC has a few high impact moves on the cardio, but they can be modified, and some aren't high impact at all.

Jess-Sounds like you were running in the weather we're having today! Officially you are my new hero! LOL. Nice job on the 16 miles:D

Wendy-Not too shabby on the 5K practice run! Your rotation looks great. You are going to do so well, just remember to take baby steps on the hills and pick up time on the flats and downhills:7

Carole-Have fun with your new toy (Garmin), and may you always know exactly where you are and how fast you're moving, lol!

Keep up the good work the rest of you cheetahs and I'll catch up later after the shopping trip.
Have a great (and hopefully dryer) day!

Good Morning Cheetahs!!

Cathy – You’re right, these boards DO keep one honest!! I love ‘em for that. No cheating… Great job on the run! Oh! BC/ME is a great one!! I LOVE the bonus premix of the two – it’s a ‘real’ weight workout with cardio thrown in. Just my opinion, though!

Carole – thanks for starting the thread! I guess a lot of Cheetahs are practicing SleepMax this morning! Good for them! I certainly enjoyed my sleep!! Where did you get your Garmin? As soon as I get a job … I like my Polar, but I always have doubts as to it’s accuracy. Weird I know.

Mattea – WOW! That’s a great deal!! Good job with your hunting!! Sounds like your house will look a bit fuller now!! That mishmosh sounds killer. Of course I have to figure out how to fit it in my schedule… LOL…Hope things dry up for you.

Today I get to try MM! I’m so excited! If I have time I’ll add an iCycle to it, but I don’t want to way over do it today as I have my long run tomorrow. The hike yesterday went well – the heel was okay. So, I’ll try the run again…

Hi Christine,
Yes, Sleepmax was very welcome this morning! I'm glad your heel is feeling okay. Enjoy MM! It's fantastic! I don't know if you have the Gym Styles, but I've been doing a really fun weights mishmosh with them where I do three exercises for each upper body part and about 8 for the lower body. You can switch up the exercises each time and make a new "MM". I love it because you can go VERY heavy and really have some nice DOMS}(

2 miles yesterday at the outdoor track. One lap backwards. Fingers crossed. Trying for slow 2 miles every second day this week. We'll see about next week. Come on leg. . . get better, get stronger!

Good morning all! Quiet day on the check in so far.... I guess we've all been out there running:-) Did my 18 miler today and feel pretty good about it. Still have some energy left which is good....I need to catch up on some yard work:7 Had a real busy day yesterday with a trail run, HSTA and helping my sister move her classroom furniture after being flooded. Sounds like alot of busy cheetahs lately :7

Carole- So I guess right now your out giving your Garmin a test drive
:7 I'll be interested in hearing how you like it as compared to your polar. I'm thrilled for you that your DH is still continuing with the elliptical workouts! Right now my DH is getting in a workout with mowmax!

Cathy- You've committed to a 5k? How wonderful....those are such fun! Thursday night is an odd time for a race though! If you want a suggestion for a new Cathe workout may I throw one out there not on your consideration list? How about Bodymax? The choreography is pretty basic and it's not terribly high impact and the weight segments are truly challenging. I think you'd like it. Honestly if I could keep only one Cathe workout (heaven forbid!) this would be the one I would choose. It has everything!

Mattea- our busy busy cheetah. Congratulations on some fantastic furniture shopping there. You did terrific! I just LOVE that mish mosh you posted }( Sounds right up my alley....but it will have to wait a bit, my legs are far from fresh at the moment!

Christine- You will have a great time with MM! I love the variety and intensity of this workout. You'll be primed for your long run far are you going?

Laurie- you're on a long run also today....good luck and looking forward to hearing from you!

Jess- Fantastic job on your 16 mile wet run yesterday! What an inspiration you are!!!!!

Elaine- I had you in mind alot today! When I felt like quitting I
thought of you doing your 20 miler.....could you feel my vibes floating across Az to Ca?

Wendy- I enjoyed your description of you 5k route yesterday! You did it in a pretty darn respectable time too!!!! On race day just relax and have fun. Start in the middle or back of the pack, wave and smile back at the spectators, thank the volunteers at the water station and most important...remember to smile at the finish line!!
You will be so jazzed by this experience...I guarantee it!

Okay, enough babbling. The next couple of weeks will be step backs before I up the mileage to 20. I may be doing a couple of races also. There's a 10k next weekend and a HM the following week :7

Take care everyone..Hi to all who follow!

Hey Cheetahs.

It's my rest day today. :-)

DH and I are heading up north to MIL's later for dinner and to pick up Joey. Should be a nice visit. Now we won't have to make the treck on tuesday which can be a good thing.

Saw the WTC movie last night. It was good. I was not compelled to cry as others have said they have though. I'm not sure why. It just wasn't done in such a way that made me want to cry...Amazing story of bravery though!

Don't have time for personals at the moment. Sorry. :-(

Will catch up later!:-)
