fiasco - noun - a thing that is a complete failure, especially in a ludicrous or humiliating way.

Everything is fine here. I just like the word "fiasco".

Ran 10 this morning. One more step and I would have likely dropped dead. The upcoming Marshall University Half Marathon could likely be my last run of 10+ miles. Hurts too much these days.  I keep hoping I'll enjoy the longer runs but it never happens.

10!!!! Wow! When is the Half?

You had me worried at Fiasco!  :laugh:

Going to 90" spin in a while. Hot here.

The half is still 6 weeks away. I'll try to run 10-12 a couple more times before then.  Ideally it would be an 11 mile run in 2 weeks and 12 miles in 4 weeks but I'm not committing to that yet.

Yeah, with race day magic, you should b fine!

oh dear.:sad:  Since Dawn is only 10k you must have someone on the side.   I feel so used.
Parent - - By OldAndInTheWay Date 2017-09-22 8:56 AM
If i run 12 I can say I did the Dawn twice : pbbt::shocker!:

Fiasco is such a good word.  It sounds just like its meaning.  Careen is another good one; to move swiftly in an uncontrolled way. If I ever get up to moving swiftly I'm sure it will be uncontrolled.:laugh:

Today tho, it was just a slog.  Humidity is unbearable.  I didn't even make the "go try it for 2 miles before you bail" rule.   1.5, maybe 1.75.   It is just unbearable outside.   Misha is lying on the cool kitchen tile panting.  I may join her.

Today is a teacher professional development day in our district.  We had a team building activity in my school this morning then meetings.  After a nice potluck lunch, I was told to independently work on curriculum, lessons, etc for my area. 

I downgraded to 6 miles this morning.  It's been about three weeks since I've run trails, so I may get in some miles on the trails tomorrow morning.

6 miles is my new long run! :wink:
Parent - By JetGirl [us] Date 2017-09-23 1:13 PM
Yay!! That is a great run!
Parent - - By JetGirl [us] Date 2017-09-22 12:38 PM
Did my spin class. I like this teacher a lot. She is a beast of a triathlete. Plays great music too.

Did better than usual. Sat by the fan. :laugh:

Icky and steamy outside.

My little dog backed off from the neighbors big cat today. Usually the cat pretends to run away, but I guess he was cranky today and just arched and hissed. Kiki stopped in her tracks, backed up, and scooted into the house. :laugh:  she has a rich fantasy life and imagines herself a true predator.

Go Kiki!

Glad you had a good class.  She sounds like my Bodysculpt teacher.

Yes, they seem to fit the same description. When does Amy start work??
Parent - - By dnaff [us] Date 2017-09-22 5:08 PM
Monday at 7am.  She already has her alarm set for 4:45 and her backup for 5:15.  Her apt is maybe 10 blocks from work.:laugh:  She is so nervous!!
Parent - By JetGirl [us] Date 2017-09-23 1:14 PM
Awww. What a good girl! So happy for her!

No fiasco here.  31 years ago, I became a Mom!  Best job ever.

Went for a quick power walk this morning.

Enjoy your Friday!

Happy Birthday to one of the Loves of your Life!!
Parent - By JetGirl [us] Date 2017-09-22 5:02 PM
Aww. So special. Great job on the PW. I am sure it is hot there!

No fiasco here, either. I do agree it's a great word. I had a couple of good runs and a couple of good walks this week. I don't see me ever racing again, honestly, except for the Tri for a Cure here every July. I'm totally fine with that.

I've abandoned my C9 fitness stuff from Target in favor of Old Navy's fitness line. I'm beyond happy with everything I've bought so far.

:grin:

Hmm. Will have to check that out! I wear C9 too
