    Nice running you two.  I rode 8 miles on the mtn bike this morning in 39:15.  A little while ago I did a series of floor exercises, push-ups, sit-ups, etc. 

     

    I didn't use the walking sticks, but did break them out and dust 'em off.   D.H., the idea behind the walking sticks is to get an upper body workout, emphasizing push-off with the arms and shoulders but NOT driving with the legs. 

     

    We're forecast for rain tomorrow, but if it holds off long enough I'll give the walking sticks a try.  If they don't work, I'll put 'em in storage with my running shoes...lol

     

    I've got a buddy here who loves Canada Geese.  He owns a farm and boards horses for people, among other things.  When a flock of geese spend the day in his fields, it means LOTS of free fertilizer...lol





    Enjoy life, this ain't a rehearsal...

    Nice run for you all.  Got tied up in a meeting and spent time with daughter, so did not get a run in.

     

    Really need to get a long run in this weekend as per half training.  I did 20 total last week (with an 8) and want to hit at least 20 this week, with a 10 miler sometime over the weekend.  The long runs are key for me in getting ready for a half.

     

    88 degrees sounds pretty good Ray!
