The government is shutdown, not the forum. 

Post away!

I spent a couple of hours at the animal shelter and now have the rest of the day free.  I couldn't get interested in the football games yesterday.  For me, last week was so good this week was a let-down.  I hope the Super Bowl is exciting.

Have a good Monday everyone; I have a rainy day indoor yoga practice on tap.  Once the weather straightens out I'm going to find consistent running to be a good challenge.

I too am hoping for an exciting Super Bowl.  My brother is betting on the Eagles, so for his sake, I want the Eagles to win.

You are such a good person for volunteering at the animal shelter.

Thanks for the compliment but really it is all about the people there.  I volunteer with 3 retired teachers who have know each other since their college days.  They have been so nice in letting me join their friendship.  Unfortunately we are known as the "Monday Cat Ladies" but I can live with that.  As we started chatting it turns out we all went to the same college, lived in the same dorm.  I was just there several years after they had all graduated.   Good friends, small world.

School is not shutdown today either.  We are back on schedule after a week of being snowed in. 

It was so nice this morning outside.  52F and the roads were clear.  I think I may have run a bit faster than usual.  8 miles.

Woo hoo, school is back in session!

I bet you are sad to see the kids leave, especially baby Ellie.  Post a picture of her if you can.

I am sure you are speedo ready now!

Ran 3.06 at lunchtime. 65° and windy.
Parent - By oncearunner [us] Date 2018-01-22 2:28 PM
It is getting windy here also.  Much windier than when I went out this morning.

Superbowl here we come.   Well not me, but the whole Philadelphia area.   Nobody saw predicted that the Eagles would blow out the Vikings.  It's fun with all of the news coverage.  I can get a complete Superbowl package for $7800 per person. 

Took a guy up to Philly airport yesterday afternoon.  I could see the stadium in the distance (about 3 miles).  It was tempting to go and just walk around the tailgaters.  Apparently it was one huge party. 

Planning to run later this afternoon.

$7,800 per person!  That is a lot of  $$$$$$$.  I'll just watch it from the comfort of my home.

Band aid solution.  Crazy indeed!

Just returned from a 5 mile power walk, did a 1 minute plank and 2 sets of 2 pushups!

It is sunny and 49 degrees.  I may work out in the yard later this afternoon.

Have a good day all!
Parent - - By dnaff [us] Date 2018-01-22 10:03 AM
you ramped up that plank time pretty quickly, good for you!
Parent - - By oncearunner [us] Date 2018-01-22 2:25 PM
I added 10 seconds every week.  I think I am going to stay at a minute and next week will try and do to sets.
Parent - - By dnaff [us] Date 2018-01-22 2:43 PM
Or add side planks and reverse planks.  I can hold a front plank for a few minutes but those side planks, whew, my arms start collapsing around 40 seconds.
Parent - By oncearunner [us] Date 2018-01-22 4:03 PM
Good idea on the side and reverse planks.  Thanks!
