SW,
Sorry you only made 11.5 miles (sarcasm, lol).

Jamie,
Waiting to hear about the Row for the Cure?

Well, our team did complete the 5K Row for the Cure. We had a great coxswain, which is a good thing because there were a bunch of other boats and the race course included a turn around. We came in last in our class, but our coach said we did well because we were only a minute behind the next boat instead of the 4 or 5 minutes that we might expect from the fact that half of us had only been in a sweep boat three times before the race (What he didn't mention is that the next boat was breast cancer survivors.) What I learned about myself is that I can do a race like that, but that I didn't enjoy it. Instead of excitement I felt dread. So I am going to stick to rowing and getting better and fitter and not worry about racing this season. Maybe later, when I have a year of fitness instead of a few months.

The row this morning was nice. We were in a "quad," which is a four-person sculling boat, working on technique, and the river was beautiful, with the leaves starting to turn. (One thing I don't like about racing is that all I see is the people in front of me and might as well be in a gym for all the chance there is to enjoy the river.)

Yes, Nadine, calories burned in real life count! And I hear rest days are a good idea.
Ron, sounds like hard work,
SW, no one is alloed to call 11.5 miles “falling short”.
Jamie, congratulations on learning that you don’t like competiton, no reason you should!
Kettlebell class today – some good squats and lunges.

Thanks, Abby - I am enjoying the aftermath of competition, though. I posted a photo from the race on my facebook page, and am getting lots of strokes from friends

Reminds me of the old sled dog quote " If you're not the lead dog the view is always the same". LOL
Glad to hear you competed and learned from the experience. You could post a picture or two here also.

Abby,
Good job on the kettlebell class! And I agree 11.5 miles cannot be called falling short. LOL

SW,
There is a new poster in the diet section looking for input on a diet for a runner. You might see if you can help him out. I certainly don't have any expertise in that area.

I'm still trying to figure it out myself-however, that's a question for coach, he's got the wisdom and experience.

Lol at Abby & Ron, falling short was more of mental thing, my lower half was still sore from the squats earlier in the week and I was surprised that I made it that far. I'm just glad I haven't seen any snakes this year

Jaime-the rowing competition sounds a little intense, I'm more into a "solo" type of competition, but I think its very cool that you're doing what you do. Working with other individuals to achieve the same goal can be difficult.

I can relate to the effect of squats on your running. Remember to let them have time to repair too.

Mzmini,
Impress run! Way to go.

Wow, lots of good work out there.

Welcome to the new folks. Today was a rest day. Sunday I was thinking of a bike ride, but it got into the 90s before I had my 2nd cup of coffee, so I did a bunch of gardening and potted plant stuff. It resulted in some exertion, but not quite the same as a 12 mile mt bike ride .

Tomorrow CrossFit and then a pretty full schedule for the rest of the week.

Keep it up everyone!

MzMiNi – an hour is something to be proud of!

Ron, your arms must be screaming at you – looks impressive.

Pam, we are having beautiful fall in New England – I’m currently fretting that my heat isn’t starting up (so need to make an appointment with my friendly expensive repair man) – I wouldn’t trade for your 90’s.

Great run today – got my 5K in in just about 26 minutes, then kept going until I hit 5 miles in 40 minutes, then walked with good elevation for 10 minutes.

Stay strong!

Abby
