Good morning Cheetahs! Where is everyone? I'm really surprised to be starting us off this morning. This will need to be a quick post. Work is calling my name. I think today will be a 3 mile run. We are supposed to get some rain which will be bringing more seasonable temps our way so if it is cooler today then I might take Chelsea out for a short 1/2 miler. She can't go any farther than that now.

Cathy - Good job on WW! How much have you lost so far?

Well, I'm all caught up on personals from yesterday! I'll BBL. WAVES to all cheetahs!

Good morning Kristi and fellow Cheetahs!

I only have a second because I have to be to work a bit earlier so I can get as many horses ridden as I can before it gets too hot. I tried to do Lomax this morning but had to stop during the warm up. I sneezed pretty hard last night and my rib is killing this morning...stupid, huh? If it isn't too hot later (no A/C in my house) and I feel okay after my riding marathon I'll try again.

Have a good one!

Good Morning Kristi, Wendi and all who follow.

Hey Wendi, I just typed your name with a "Y"! :7

Well, I still feel like crud but it's holding steady. I am not getting any worse and I was able to breath all day and all night and can still breath this mroning so I am thankful for that atleast. I am also not running a fever so yeay on that note as well.

The work out I will attempt today is to make up tricep work that I missed y'day as well as do one additional body part. If I am up to it I will also attempt some cardio. I was considering hitting the gym for the cardio but on second thought, I think I will stay home. I may take Joey to the park if it's not too hot out there....perhaps being out in the not-so-fresh Jersey air will make me feel better. :7

Last night was fun. My Uncle (my dad's brother) is a hoot. He's got a great sense of humor and simply ADORES children. He is a hit whenever he is around kids. Joey had a blast with him last night!:+ This is a guy who, when he still lived in NJ, drove a couple of hours ONE WAY on Christmas Eve just to play Santa for a variety of children he knew including my neices and nephews who live in NY state. He would hit the houses between say 11pm and 1am in the morning like he was the REAL Santa and deliver gifts to them! My neices and nephews would get soooo excited and were in awe. They totally believed it was the real Santa!!! My Uncle did this a for a few years before he decided to relocate to Florida. He was talking last night about how he loved doing that and misses it now that he's not around anymore.

Okay...I'm getting a bit long winded here....let me know refill my coffee cup...or...perhaps I don't need the caffeine!!!:P

BBL!:7

Good morning all! Posting from work, it's been busy but not insane so that's always a good thing! When I get home I'll go for an interval run- 800m at 10k race pace x 8.

Kristi- Hope you get the rain and cooler temps today. It'll make your run alot more tolerable at least!

Wendi- You poor baby, I can't imaging going into work for a riding marathon with your rib hurting so much! Girl, whatever they pay you it is not enough! I like your plans on pursuing a Rad Tech cert possibly. They do get paid pretty well and there is a constant demand.

Wendy- Glad to hear you can breathe at least! Your Uncle from Fla sounds like a great guy! Hope you can get your workout in today and feel better!

Duty calls now. I wish all the cheetahs a fantastic Hump day!

ShellyC

Good morning cheetahs

Cathy...don't you just love the blurry drops the eye Dr gives you?....http://bestsmileys.com/eek/4.gif[/img]...Sounds like you enjoyed Body Fusion. I think you should get the massage your Chiro referred you too. Quads feel much better today. I was glad I waited a day until I ran, but the run felt good.

Kristi...thanks, it was nice to push again last sunday racing, but I am paying for the soreness...:)..sounds like you got in a great workout in 20 min yesterday. Hope the 3 mile run goes well today.

Wendi...sounds like you have things in plan for the job change. I hope things workout for you as you sound excited about the job change! I do remember that sneezing can be tough on the ribs...I hope the riding goes well today.

Wendy...your Uncle sounds lie a great guy. I have an Uncle that used to do "Santa", but he is a bit long winded...:)..Hope the cold lets you workout.

Shelly...glad DH gave you the foot massage, I bet that felt so nice after the 20 miler. The Man against Horse race sounds very tough, but I am sure you are ready. I did the GS leg workout as I am trying to work my legs a bit heavier than the BBC leg workout does. Hope you enjoy All Body Attack yesterday. Glad to hear work is not too insane today. Enjoy your interval run.

Jackie...sounds like a good workout from Gilad. Good job with iTread for 60 min!

Susan...hope you haf fun with the GS workout. The leg workout was fun yesterday but worked me hard as they were still a bit sore from day!

I am doing BBC Arms & Abs, and a 4 mile run.

Have a great day...

Good morning Cheetahs!

At work now, but wanted to say hello to you all and wish you a nice Hump Day!!!!


I have taken some time off. I meant to run this AM, but I want to give my hip an extra day not to be sore.

It will be ok, but I pulled it out last week doing Leslie Sanson's 4 mile walk DVD (which I loved).

Tomorrow - I am going to do a Cathe Step DVD. Not too sure yet.


Have a great day!

Amy :)

Good morning ladies!

Susan - Feeling better today? Did IMAX do the job? I like iTreads more so than CC because I work harder for Grace. I like that she gives me numbers to work from. I don't think I push myself with CC because he's letting me choose. Easy to cheat.

Shelly - Can't wait to hear the race report for your Man Against Horse race. It does sound like a great challenge. Actually, I think putting more hills in my runs is helping my hamstrings. Go figure. Guess I was overworking everything else. Enjoy your interval run.

Wendy - Your body probably needed the extra rest. Glad you had a nice dinner at your mom's and fun with your uncle. Hope you feel better. Don't want you to be sidelined.

Kristi - Great run yesterday! Those 20 minute runs are intense and I like that. DS still getting a lot of homework? Hope you get in a good run today.

Wendi - Sounds like you're doing some good planning and thinking things through. Good luck! Oh, yeah, the plum jam in the oats sounds totally delicious.

Cathy - What is Body Fusion? Sounds like a nice little workout. Glad WW is going well. An adjustment and a massage on the same day sounds like heaven to me.

Carole - Enjoy your run and Barry today.

Christine - How are you today?

Hello to all others.

Today was supposed to be speed drills but I opted for iTread #13 Sprints. I warmed up with 5 minutes on the elliptical and a little stretching. I decided to challenge myself and kept the runners' pace and added a couple of extra sprints to get in 4 miles. I used the foam roller for about 20 minutes of stretching.

Happy Hump Day!

Jackie

Good morning ladies,
I am up and ready to run 5 miles. I will then do some ab work and maybe pure strength lying leg work. I really like that lower body portion with the body bar:-) I did the GS ba, sh, bi's last night and it was fun. I forgot what a fun and effective workout that is. My 7 year old did the whole thing with me with her 2lbers.

Kristi, enjoy your run and hopefully it will not rain.

Wendi, I hate when stuff like that gets in the way of a workout. When I was pregnant with my middle child, I sneezed and fractured a rib. You don't realize how powerful a movement a sneeze is. I hope you get it in later:-)

Wendy, I hope you feel better today and get a workout in. If you don't feel like it though, take a day off. You will make up for it later;-)


Shelly, glad that work is not too insane for you today. Have a great run, you always do;-)


CArole, have a good run and great upper body workout. I kind of forgot about the BBC workouts. I am going to start focusing on strength gains now instead of endurance. I may have to actually open my slow and heavy dvd that has never been touched. Those workouts scare the heck out of me}(


Amy, good for you for letting the hip heal. You will be running in no time.

Jackie, yes, Imax2 took the pms blues away. I love that workout! Thanks for giving me your input on the itread vs. cardio coach. I will have to download some itreads and give it a try. Gotta love the foam roller;-)

Well ladies, I am off to take kids to school. Have a great morning and great workouts!

Susan

I truly think the Airborne is working! I am feeling better! I am not feeling great yet but definately not as bad as y'day! I hope this means I can atleast get through the weight work today BEFORE I lay down for a looong nap. :7

Susan, Less cardio worked great for me during the X. It hasn't done anything notable while training for the HM but my eating hasn't been all that great and I haven't been soley focused on heavy lifting the entire time either. If you are going to try it, I would suggest pairing it up with a heavy lifting rotation as opposed to endurance work outs. You also have to have your MAIN FOCUS be on the lifting, not the cardio. I am mainly focused on my running right now since I'm doing HM training.

Well, I'll be back at nap time for more personals. Just wanted to check in with y'all really quick for now.

Buh-bye!:-)
