OK, so I know that some of you have already posted in last week's thread, but I thought I'd start a new one for this week anyway.

My big news... I have hardly been training at all in the last few weeks. I'm spending too much time at work and working on getting my house together so we can move in officially this weekend. Wooooo Hooooo.

I did get a decent trail run in today, 1:08 but it was really slow because my legs were like lead, my calves tight like piano wires and it was HOT!!

Well time to get back at the training consistently. IM ain't gonna do itself.

Have fun running ladies.

Really struggling to get my running or bike shoes on and get out the door at the minute. Had a long weekend which always disrupts my routine and have just felt tired and unmotivated, then checked my calendar and I'm PMSing and am supposed to be heading into easy week anyway! Hopefully by the end of the weekend motivation should be in full force again. My rib injury has messed things up royally and is still there though is now very localised, still hurts a bit though and am a bit wary of running on it. I seem to have aggravated it again by a couple of nights of sleeping on my front for some reason and it still hurts most when lying in bed.

As I appear to be drifting aimlessly I've found some trail runs/walks (trying to persuade a non-running but hillwalking friend to do them with me) and road 10K s to start prepping for, the first one in September, that should make me pull my finger out.

We are supposed to run today, but it is really, really hot, so we will see. Right now I am sitting in the air conditioned building. I am sure it is going to feel just peachy when I go outside....I will report back later. Swimming outside in the bay sounds like more fun.

Haven't been posting on this thread in a long while because my running... well, my running is almost non-existent. Does running 1 or 2 days a week really qualify me as a runner anymore?

I only run to finish tri's nowadays. I'm like you tattie- just unmotivated.

Ran the trail today for 40 min. First HOT day of the year and after encountering 4 armadillos, a handful of frogs, 2 snakes, 1 turtle and some sunburned shoulders I called it quits.

I keep reading this thread hoping it'll get me motivated. Instead, I just live vicariously through your runs as if they are my own. I ran today so I could finally post here again. You ladies are awesome, and inspiring, too!

Lazy Colby checking in, too! I took Monday and Tuesday after my HM off, did turbo kickboxing yesterday (the squats were "fun"), and yoga this morning. I'm hoping to get back on the bike or run with the dog tomorrow, and do a brick this weekend.

Keep up the good work, ladies!!

We went, 4 miles, it was freakin' hot and humid and I almost stepped on a snake, and then DH broke out in hives so bad I had to take him to the ER.....

Should have gone swimming......

! ! !

10 years from now he'll say "remember that time you tried to kill me on that run?"

I did my first run in a week this evening because, well, I've been having too much fun mtn biking in southern Utah. I thought I'd feel like a million bucks since I should in theory be "rested" but the uphill was hard. Really hard. I felt much better once the slope mellowed out. I ran a new trail that looped into one of my familiar trails for a total of 7.75 miles. I probably won't get to run for a few days since my good friend SadieKate will be in town and we'll be riding our bicycles (Little Red Saturday and mtn biking in Park City Sunday).

I don't think that I'm running enough to be able to do the local trail mary in August. Oh well. Maybe next year.

I hope he's okay!

I guess that's one way to keep your heart rate up....
