5.2 miles for me.
Parent - - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-11-08 6:13 AM
I'm up snuggling with my dogs. Going to hit the TM for 4 miles and then take Winston to the groomer. He is, as I told my boss, a "safety hazard" to himself. That dog needs a trim.

I'm off work today, trying to use up noncarry overable vacation time. I will still probably work a little since I am swamped right now, but the benefit to WFH is that no one will be able to hijack my plans calling or emailing with anything I can't ignore.
Parent - - By Xtreme Taper Date 2017-11-08 8:17 AM
What sort of dog is Winston? The Lady is a gsp... she can stretch out and take up half the bed, but thankfully does not need groomed. Our springer spaniel has hair that grows like crazy.
Parent - By Buggy [us] Date 2017-11-08 9:41 AM
My old dog was a springer/cocker mix, and oy do I remember the hair! It was especially fun when he'd go tromping through the woods and find a patch of burrs. There was more than one emergency haircut : pbbt:

One of my current two dogs is also a springer mix (we think maybe springer/beagle). Thankfully while he has the coloring pattern of a springer, he has the short fur of a beagle. Since he also smaller than an adult springer, he looks like a perpetual springer puppy :hug:

Neither of my two dogs are good running partners, though. Owner fail with training :laugh::cry:
Parent - - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-11-08 12:36 PM
Winston is a Cairn Terrier mix. I'm pretty sure the "mix" is Westie, but his fur is black.
Parent - - By SRoo Date 2017-11-08 1:26 PM
Cairn Terriers are cute!
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-11-08 1:48 PM
Mine are of course!:hug::laugh:
Parent - - By Xtreme Taper Date 2017-11-08 2:16 PM
I had to lookup Cairn Terriers. Our old springer, SirB loves that breed of dog. Our neighbor has one, or at least a mix one, and SirB always barks at him.  :laugh:
Parent - - By Spingoddess [us] Date 2017-11-08 3:37 PM
Wasn't Dorothy's Toto a Cairn Terrier?
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-11-08 8:45 PM
Yes. My husband picked out the breed for our first family pet and I've stuck with them because I'm a Terrier person I guess.

Don't get too sucked into any work stuff.  When I was at home on vacation time I'd read email just to try & keep up.  I was a manager & always had one of my direct report managers appointed to be in charge while I was out so they could :roll: handle anything that couldn't wait.
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-11-08 12:39 PM
I was pretty good about not lingering after I finished what I wanted to accomplish. I've got enough stuff todo around the house that work feels like avoidance.

I took the morning off because it was raining and 46* - I'll go tomorrow when it will just be cold, but not drizzly
and all of my cold weather gear is packed away at the new house, so this evening I'm going to be purchasing a head band and some gloves to tide me over just in case it dips much lower before we get moved (which of course it will)

it's a rare treat for us to get some snow that sticks around long enough to run in, but I always make sure to take advantage of it and go for a run when we do. :happy:

4 mile trail jog with the Lady at the local Sprogels Run trail today at lunchtime. We took the trail to the end today, meaning we did the half mile loop across the road the goes up/down on a section of real single track trail. Most other sections of this trail are wide, dirt/cinder paths. Still I am happy to have it nearby. Sort of brisk and cold, but sunny, and not quite glove weather yet. I did start off wearing a ski cap for the ears (Iron Masters 50k swag) but did not wear it for very long. There are some houses nearby and we heard an alarm echoing through the hills and the woods halfway through our run.
Parent - By IB [us] Date 2017-11-08 4:27 PM
:cool:

Hopefully just a false alarm.
Parent - By jaszflamus (I like wool!) Date 2017-11-08 6:56 PM
Awesome. :cool: Loving your rehab and comeback and you'll be totally back before you know it. :grin: Unless it was you who set off the alarm.
Parent - By ironjen Date 2017-11-09 7:05 AM
Is the Sprogels trail all connected now and easy to figure out? Also how long is the trail or do you have to do loops? That would be a really great option since it's one entrance is right over the hill of cross.
Parent - By jaszflamus (I like wool!) Date 2017-11-08 6:54 PM
Actually my hump was last night since we have Friday off for Veterans Day. errr maybe I should rephrase that....

Anyhow, today was a very chilly 5 miles along the river at lunchtime. :happy:

I forgot to mention (and this is mostly for Arimathea) that I found another Janet Evanovich book from the Stepahnie Plum series during my run. Since I carried it for three miles on the way home last night I guess I'm going to have to read it.
Parent - By Arimathea [us] Date 2017-11-11 4:43 PM
Somebody in your neighborhood is leaving the books scattered around, or perhaps the person is tossing them out of the car window?

Sounds like the classic review of "Peyton Place", which is by no means a great literary achievement:

This is not a book to be lightly set aside.
It should be thrown with great force.

5 miles; 3 with Bogey and 2 by myself.  It was 26 when I ran; the coldest morning of the fall so far.

Headed to the Lake of the Ozarks for meetings the rest of the week. It will be too dang cold to do anything on the water. :meh:

No but if is is in the teens or colder I shorten his run.
Parent - - By skigirl Date 2017-11-08 2:30 PM Edited 2017-11-08 2:32 PM
Our younger dog, whom I call SheltieBoy on the forum, is a finicky running partner.  Too hot, and he overheats and wants to lie in the grass by the side of the trail rather than run.  Too cold, and he gets ice balls in his paws and wants to lie by the side of the trail and chew his feet.  Really, past +25C (80F) and below -18C (-6F) he's useless as a running partner.  Fortunately our older dog will happily run no matter what the temperature* - she's 10 now and still going strong.  :hug:

*  My winter running cut-off is -32C (-34F) so I shouldn't say the dog will go out in *any* temperature as she hasn't been road-tested below that point.  :laugh:
Parent - - By Buggy [us] Date 2017-11-08 2:35 PM
Have you ever tried Musher's Balm for his feet? It's a wax-based coating you put on dogs feet to protect against snow & ice.

Hmm, good to know.

We usually run 2 to 4 miles. I know he could run farther but I think he gets bored so after a rew miles, he wants to stop and smell everything, so it turns into tug a war. :laugh:

Michigan is not One Of The States In The Middle.  Those are the rectangle ones which no one really knows which is which until you need to visit one of the rectangle states.  Michigan, like Texas, is a state everyone recognizes!

Parent - By blazer85 [us] Date 2017-11-09 11:55 AM
NERD ALERT:  From my 5th Michigan history lesson which, for whatever reason, I found fascinating....In the 1830's, when Michigan was about to become a state, Ohio & Michigan almost went to war over who could claim Toledo as their property.  Ohio was already been a state and therefore said it was their's.  The area was valuable because the Maumee River is in Toledo.  After a bunch of blah-blah, the federal government gave Michigan the UP and Ohio kept Toledo.  Since Wisconsin was even close to becoming a state at that particular point in time, the feds didn't care about Wisconsin.
Parent - By BigTex [us] Date 2017-11-08 2:55 PM

- - By skigirl Date 2017-11-08 8:23 AM
I worked 9:00-7:00 yesterday and headed to the gym afterwards looking forward to my usual Tuesday routine of cardio intervals and weights.  I was out of town for a couple of weeks for work travel so missed the last two Tuesdays.  Got there, changed, and then discovered I'd left my running shoes at home.  :cry:  Hard to work around that, so I changed back into my street clothes and headed for the exit - and then discovered that I'd left my mitts in my office.  : pbbt:  So, walked home with my hands in my coat pockets.

Quick run this morning with the pups - 4 mins run/1 min walk.  It took me so long to get ready, as this was our first snowy run of the year and I had to sort out mitts/gloves, woolly hat, headlamp, which fleece jacket to wear for this temperature, etc., etc., that I only had time for 18 minutes door-to-door, but it was great to get out and the running felt pretty comfortable, so I'll take it.

Pilates at lunch.
Parent - - By Buggy [us] Date 2017-11-08 9:49 AM
Oooooo - first snowy run! :hug: Although I can't say I really like the cold (a problem when one lives in a northern climate :cry:), it is nice when it finally makes the flip from cold rain to snow.
Parent - By skigirl Date 2017-11-08 2:37 PM

Do they try to herd you?
Parent - - By skigirl Date 2017-11-08 11:25 PM
The border collie is too lazy; the Sheltie's herding instinct is mostly expressed in an incredible talent for putting himself exactly where you were planning to put your foot, and then getting stepped on.  : pbbt:
Parent - By SRoo Date 2017-11-09 6:36 AM
A lazy Border Collie?  I didn't know that was a thing. : pbbt:  What is she mixed with, a Saint Bernard?

10 miles before work.

There was rain in the forecast and I thought I was hearing some when I woke up but it must have been the wind. Checked the radar and it looked ok with just a small green blob headed our way. I figured we'd be ok for most of the run before it hit so I threw on a hat. We did the route that goes by the small airport and was happy for the extra light so we could see our way down the trail we take to get to a water fountain. Pushed the pace today and it felt fine while running but I definitely felt it when we were done so will do some extra stretching at lunch to work it out. The green blob must have gone somewhere else as we never got any rain.

4 miles for me this morning. I wore warmer gloves today so my hands weren't frozen when I finished. I also wore a more breathable running jacket that had been stuffed in the back of my closet, so I wasn't dripping sweat but also freezing because of all the sweat when I finished. It made the post-run dog walk much more comfortable!

Fiance and I applied for our marriage license this morning. :hug: There is a 72-hour waiting period before we can pick it up. Discuss.

We had to wait to pick our up in Michigan 21 years ago....but that could have been the result that county was (and probably still is) horribly inefficient. As my office was across the street from the county building, I picked the license up.  It was not until that day, when I reviewed it, that I realized blazerman was 36 years old and not 35.  Suddenly, I was marrying an old man!:laugh: (I was 30.)

1 mile walk & 1 set hip exercises so far.  "Mr. Cane" did not accompany me on this walk!  Hope to wean myself from him completely soon.

Mid 40s with bright sunshine & hardly any wind here today!   

Have running club monthly meeting tonight.  Even though I had to give up running 4-1/2 years ago I'm still active in the club & am club sec'y.  Will be nice to see some of them tonight!  I'm still on a couple of meds that recommend not to be mixed with alcohol so it will be pizza & soda at the meeting instead of pizza & beer for me tonight :meh:

Parent - By Ed [us] Date 2017-11-08 2:16 PM
:laugh:  He's been pretty useful over the first two weeks!

So, I was on my insurer's web portal and while I haven't received the snail mail copy of the EOB for the hospital charges it was online.  It had 11 line items, 3 pairs with the same nomenclature, e.g. "Medical Equip/Supply".  I figure the cost of the cane was included in one of those but one had 4 digits and the other 5 (I think the new parts in my femur & hip are included here) so it's well hidden and definitely not broken out so I can see it.  My copay is 15% of the "agreed upon plan allowance"  except for hospital admission which is $350.00.  The hospital bill to my insurer is just under $40K, the "agreed upon plan allowance" they paid ~$38.5K and my copay = $350.00.   I think that was the final bill, excluding the post surgery follow-up with the surgeon next week ($35 copay).  Starting with original surgeon consult visit, X Rays at that time and thru surgery it almost hits $50K billed, with my cost about $1,100. TG for health insurance on a shared cost basis thru my employer that continued into retirement!

I had to make the long, rainy drive to downtown Dallas this morning, so I only had time for 60 minutes on the elliptical rather than 90 minutes.  As I had finished watching Stranger Things yesterday while ellipticalling, I needed a new Netflix show.  For the past few years, blazergirl told me I HAD TO watch Scandal, so I started that this morning.  OMG!!! That is exactly the type of crazy, overly dramatic, ridiculous show I love!  While I hope to be off the elliptical in a week or so, I will now have to watch the 6 or 7 seasons which are on Netflix.   Will go to boxing class tonight.  Last night, I was finally able to do burpees without any pain or discomfort, so I see running on the road in my future.....hopefully in the next week.

Love the verb "ellipticalling."  I'm not sure if I see being able to do burpees as a win or not - I hate those!

Another visit to the indoor track.   Got to watch a girl in her late 30's practice hurdles.  Her warmup routine was pretty fascinating, and besides, what else am I going to watch while I run endless loops.:laugh:  She was practicing with foam hurdles for part of her workout.  I've never seen such a thing.  Need to get to the track more.....

Indoor track already :cry: We are half cold. I’m in the denial/acclimation stage :shocker!:

If she is in her late 30s, is she still a girl?

I debated typing girl or lady; I thought hurdle girl sounded better than hurdle lady.:grin:
Parent - By blazer85 [us] Date 2017-11-08 2:14 PM
Yes, Hurdle Girl sounds more fun.
Parent - By blazer85 [us] Date 2017-11-08 2:15 PM
Thank you for asking this question......demonstrates you are one of the good guys.  And, the father of young lady.

Who knew the track would be so fun!

I assume the foam lets them avoid bruises when their legs clip the hurdles. 

There's a young woman who grew up in the town next to mine who made the USA team in the 2008 Olympics for 1500 meters.  I know her causally since her dad is just a couple of years younger than me and has been a member of our running club for many years.  One time I ran to the HS track there (~2 mi from my house) to do a workout and she was warming up on the grass infield.  Her warmup lasted longer than my track workout :shocker!:

7 miles.  Saw a guy that used to go to my church.  Nice of him to stop his truck in the road and chat for a while.  A former student notified me on Facebook that he was the guy in the overhead door truck waving at me :laugh:  Beautiful day: sunny, not too cold, not too breezy. :hug:

Squats, Bench Presses, Rows.  Dog ate one spider and chewed on the steel clamp thing that is supposed to keep the plates on the bar.
