Friday is usually my rest day. The first flakes are flying her. Just some light, lake effect stuff from the finger lakes. I think I will make my first crock pot of veggie chili this weekend :happy:

What are you peoples up to!?
Parent - - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-11-10 8:56 AM
I hope your chili meets or exceeds you expectations!
Parent - By cowboyjunkie Date 2017-11-10 8:59 AM
I had a glut of tomatoes at the end of the summer. so I made tomato sauce and put it in the freezer and plan to use it in the chili, so I hope that makes it extra good :cool:

4.5 miles on the trails this morning.

I had a very unusual, unscheduled day off yesterday. I had a lunch meeting and should have gotten up to run before work, but hoped for some free time later in the afternoon. It didn't help that it was raining and 50 degrees all day so it would have been a TM day. I'm racing a half marathon tomorrow so rationalized that the day off would help with that. I did have to make sure that I didn't go longer with the other folks at the trails this morning to try and make up for the lost miles from yesterday.

You hardly ever take days off. I'd like to get back to that. Actually I have been running 5 days a week but real short stuff. Good luck at the half!
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-11-10 11:04 AM
I looove days off. I just hate taking them on days I plan to run. UnSDO vs SDO in other words.
Parent - By cowboyjunkie Date 2017-11-10 9:45 AM
I think you're right about the day off. Best at your race :happy:
Parent - - By Beastie Girl [us] Date 2017-11-10 11:11 AM
Good luck tomorrow! Do you have a goal?
Parent - - By nooner [us] Date 2017-11-10 11:41 AM
This is the first race in a long time where I have had a goal. I ran a 1:47 two years ago, so I'd like to do better than that. I'd like to get back under 1:45 but I don't think that's in the cards for tomorrow.
Parent - - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-11-10 11:59 AM
I hope you succeed.
Parent - - By nooner [us] Date 2017-11-10 12:21 PM
Thanks! And I hope you succeed with your goal on Sunday.

I probably won't run today, but I am not counting out the possibility of a little 3 mile trail jog with the Lady late afternoon. I do want to get the lawn mowed during the lunch hour. Big freeze coming tonight and for some weird reason I like the lawn probably groomed before that happens. Yes I am strange.

Enjoy your chili. I made white chili last weekend but this weekend is more like chili weather.
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-11-10 8:52 PM
Good luck with the run or the lawn whichever you decide.
Parent - - By IB [us] Date 2017-11-10 9:57 AM
I'm thinking I shall be taking another day off.
Parent - - By old turtle Date 2017-11-10 11:00 AM
Just stay away from cranes.
Parent - By IB [us] Date 2017-11-10 2:22 PM
For today you've got a deal, no promises regarding this weekend though.
Parent - - By Beastie Girl [us] Date 2017-11-10 10:16 AM
Recipe for the chili please?
Parent - - By cowboyjunkie Date 2017-11-10 10:41 AM
hmmm..lemme see if I remember
1 can of dark red kidney beans and 1 can of light red kidney beans
medium size onion
1 red or green bell pepper
carrots chopped up into little nuggets
2 or 3 fresh tomatoes
1 little can of tomato paste
a jar of Newman's Own marinara sauce (but this time I'm using what I made)
salt and pepper and sometimes some red pepper and chili powder

just throw it all in the crock pot for 3 or 4 hours and then I top with some cheese and have  some nice fresh bread on the side for dipping for dipping :happy:
Parent - - By Beastie Girl [us] Date 2017-11-10 11:13 AM
Sounds delicious! Thanks! :happy:

5 pull-ups + 40 push-ups + 5 pull-ups, then easy 7 miles outside in the bitter cold, then another 5 pull-ups, 25 push-ups, and 5 more pull-ups

Squats, shoulder presses, deadlifts.  Perhaps I will attempt some sort of cardio situation tomorrow.
Parent - By jaszflamus (I like wool!) Date 2017-11-10 9:32 PM
I had the day off work and was planning to go on trail but had to cut the grass for the last time and winterize outside because we're going down into the teen temps tonight. So it was a mere 3.5 miles with the hound on the roads late this morning in the increasing chill. Which still was good. :happy:
- - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-11-10 8:55 AM
It I have not been too disciplined so far today. I actually reset my alarm (set for 5:45) and went back to bed until (Ahem) 6:15

Last night after working until 6:45 and making a quick trip to the store, I sat down on the couch knowing I had one last 2 mile run in my 1/2 training cycle.

I told myself it was late and I'd get up early tomorrow and do it. Then it hit me. I had been going around all day with track pants and a sweatshirt over running shorts and a tech shirt for just one reason.(Thankfully I work from home.) If I ate and went to bed, not only would I have to get up extra early tomorrow, I would have spent the day in this silly get-up for no reason. :meh: Made me feel likes  poser so I got my butt downstairs and ran 2.25.

I thoroughly enjoyed the run and the sense of accomplishment of knowing I am done until my race.:cool:
Parent - By cowboyjunkie Date 2017-11-10 9:00 AM
Great job getting it done :cool: Good luck!!
Parent - - By Xtreme Taper Date 2017-11-10 9:40 AM

The usual four miles on the usual trail this morning.  Low 50s, no wind.

LittleTex was home sick from school yesterday.  Seemed like a cold, or maybe just exhaustion.
Parent - By cowboyjunkie Date 2017-11-10 9:46 AM
Sounds like perfect running conditions.

Get better LittleTex!
Parent - By Beastie Girl [us] Date 2017-11-10 11:16 AM
Hope LittleTex is feeling better today!

Sounds like perfect running weather. :cool:

How old is LittleTex?  The age where you get extra cuddles from a sick kid or the age where the teen just grumps around and leaves snot-filled tissues everywhere?

First flakes!  Wow.  I don't miss hard winters, but those first flurries are certainly nice.

Gym day for me today.

5 miles for me this morning in 20-something degree windchills with like 15mph winds. :cry: It actually wasn't as bad as it sounds, I am just not ready for these temperatures yet! The run felt really good aside from battling the headwind for half the run.

We won our first corporate vball game last night! :grin: Then we lost the second two games. :laugh: We aren't very good, but we have a lot of fun and I was happy to see some new people come out last night.

This weekend I will be painting the landing upstairs in my house. I will be perilously hanging off a ladder over a stairwell to paint the ceiling and one of the walls, so that should be fun. I guess it's no more dangerous than when I painted 3-story houses during college and did the same thing outdoors. :wtf: I guess I am just old and more cautious now. : pbbt: The ceiling and walls will be followed by lots and lots of trim painting, which is one of the circles of hell as far as I'm concerned. I hate painting trim.
Parent - By Buggy [us] Date 2017-11-10 11:42 AM
Nice job on the run! This cold snap has been rather ... abrupt. :meh:

Bed magnet won this morning - and I'm not even mad

finally got up and mrbarney and I took the dogs on a nice long walk. stopped on the way to work at SB and got a caramel macchiato. I don't drink coffee - so I'm super jittery and wired right now, might have been the wrong drink choice :laugh:

Getting repetitive but it's gotta be that way for a while.  1 set hip exercises + 1 mile walk this morning.  Will repeat that later. 

So, as some of you know in my retired life I have a PT gig teaching indoor cycling (aka "Spin") classes 3 X a week.  Toward the end of the last week I taught before hip surgery our group exercise coordinator, who is great to work for and has had the job for almost the past 4 years, announced she was leaving the position for a PT nutrition job at a local hospital, while she is also attending college online to become a registered dietician.  Our fitness director just sent an email announcing her replacement and it will be a woman I worked for when I taught at another club for about 3 years.  She is awesome & they couldn't have found a better person for the job!  It's not like I'm working a 40 hour week job but this will be a stressless turnover for all!

Yesterday I decided that cross training indoors sounded a lot more appealing than running outside. :laugh: I ended up with an hour on the bike. No regrets. : pbbt:

Today is a SDO, and the plan for tomorrow is 12 miles. At least it's warming up now.
Parent - - By skigirl Date 2017-11-10 2:25 PM
Nice!  You're training for a race, right?
Parent - By Buggy [us] Date 2017-11-10 2:29 PM
No, not at the moment. I will start a marathon training cycle in January, but I'm just building base fitness at this point.
Parent - By noquitter [us] Date 2017-11-10 9:04 PM
Good luck with your 12 miler!

We're spending the weekend in the Rockies.  10-ish km of x-c skiing this morning.  Just finished lunch, and now heading out for more.  Life is good.  :hug::hug::hug:

More skiing tomorrow.  And on Sunday.  My legs will be ready for a rest day on Monday.  :laugh:
