No! They are pure concentrated evil! It's like taking a stick of lard, rolling it in sugar, deep frying it, coating it in whipped cream (the real, fatty stuff), then dousing it with syrup!

ARG!! I had a meeting with the AF recruiter yesterday to get everything started... or at least i thought i did. His office is 90 mins away, i drove all the way down there just to find out that i didn't get a voicemail he left me and he was home with his sick kid. 3 hours of driving- WASTED.

However, i have worked out the last 2 days, and plan on doing so again tonight... I wish i could do it at the same time everyday, but with my schedule it just isn't possible. at least i'm doing it- But D@*^ I HURT. frown

That's fine, you can owe me the rest wink


Today we had a weigh-in as part of our wellness program. The initial one was the week before Thanksgiving, this was the final. The goal was to gain no more than 2 pounds over the holidays. It gets a surprising amount of participation, though still only about 1/3 of the staff. Surprised at how well most people did! I personally failed, surely because I put on a pound or two of muscle over that time...maybe. wink

I think that is great that you guys get that much participation Matt! (I dont worry about yours. A week of solid runs and you will be where you want)
My scale did not move over the holidays. Which is nice except that I need to be 6-8 pounds lighter before all my races start. I've got one every other weekend starting saturday. But the first big one isn't until March. No more prime rib for me. smile

A week solid, running is more like it wink I'd need to burn about 10,000 calories to hit my original number, so 14-15 miles a day!

I think it's just a difference in water mostly. 7 weeks ago it was still in the 40's or better and I was sweating a lot more on my runs. Now I'm happy above 20 and really not losing much of any water weight over a run. That and I have gotten back to strength training in the last month as I shifted to more indoor exercise, so there is a small chance of muscle related weight gain.

Everything has its season. The important thing is that you are are adapting your workouts to the conditions that you have, not giving up on them because of the condidtions that you have.
Like it or not, you have developed a habit. wink

Had to axe my speed day, too hard on the lungs to do intervals in <15 degree temps wink. 3 run, 3 weight/cross-training days.

February or so starts the real race training, if I want to do a half marathon at the end of April, then the TM in May! I haven't seen you sign up yet, but I'm sure it's coming.

Race is the 18th, yes sir. I've got 2 making the trip with me so far, and then hopefully a couple of the locals will make the decision to join us, once they get off the fence about it! I won't say who, but he/she/they might be Mr & Mrs Mani wink

Bring the Ms. with you too!

lol- it's 1.5 hours one way, and that is driving 10-15 over the speed limit as it is. He's supossed to be coming here next time. Which, Why he didn't do that to begin with i'm not sure, but whatever.

2013 WILL be the year...I just signed up for my first 10K! And what a great one, the Cooper River Bridge Run in beautiful Charleston, SC!

Now to get race ready by April 6...this is where I will need BOL motivation. I downloaded a 10k training app, but I'm nervous I won't be ready in time. Any tips/training advice from the runners out there?
