Yeah was twirling around the paint stations but always happens with running

My heart sank today... explosion at the Boston marathon. My mother is now fearful of any run I do that is coming up. Why would someone do such a horrible thing?!?!?!

At least one of them is dead and the other has been caught. Terrible in every sense though, unbelievable.

I'm praying everything goes well and without incident at the London marathon, should be happening about now as it's on this weekend.

Can hope. Did my 5k today and managed to finish in 37-38 min range. Still good for working all night and doing my 10k training program. Took a lot out of me though....

Now I have a month off of races to focus on my running training. And hopefully it will be warmer. Forgot a long sleeve shirt to protect me and got so cold my muscles started to seize up.... Making arms a but difficult as they are sore and tired from warming up. Took me a good hour under 2 blankets and warm clothes to stop chilling......

Sounds like we are both battling with the cold! Definately cooling down here now, and this week has pretty much poured the whole time which has been crap. Hmmmmm

Cold front moved through while I was at work and didn't know it. Last time I went to search for a jacket or a long sleeve shirt I couldn't find one so didn't waste my time to hunt one down. Won this little beauty today at the run so will be adding bike riding into routine. At this point I have no reason to be stuck on a machine at the gym to do cardio :D Really ready for some warmer weather but won't let it stop me from my training. Ready to see some of my fluff disappear!

Felt really big and bloated during the run. I wish I could just get my diet tweaked so that when I get off work I am not starving and inhale everything in sight..... That last 2 hours of work is constant moving and lifting. I think I will pack a peanut butter banana roll up tonight for after work with a protein shake to see if that will help with the binging. Something has to give already.... BTW took 149th out of 290 and ran the 5k in 38:05 that is a 1 min and 13 sec better than my last timed run.

You finished pretty much in the middle and got a PB of more than a minute better than your last one?

Great work ~ and you look like you are flying in your pic lol.

actually my PB is 32ish but was not that cold and I had my team there cheering me on. Yesterday I was alone with my running program that ended at the 4k mark leaving me with 1k to push myself. Once I was close to the finish I found one last kick and hauled butt I wanted a better time than 39:18 lol. Also finding my stride is getting better too. Had a packet of Vega in hand just in case my banana wore off which it didn't thank goodness :)
