Just Keep Doing It

Treadmill for 60 minutes
hip/back - shaky
shape - sickening
attire - censored
run - sad
Law and Order Criminal Intent Marathon - Scary and sadistic but also a savior

mile 1 - 13:00
.25 mile - walk
mile 2 - 12:00
.75 mile - walk
mile 3 - 11:40
.25 mile - walk




Thanks for all the great birthday wishes. I had a nice day and we took the kids to an ISU Cyclone game. They had a ball giving Cy high fives and bugging us until we bought them foam fingers. I hope to make 40 my best year yet, and not just on the running front. Thanks to all of you who have come on this journey with me. I really appreciate your wisdom, support, enthusiasm and friendship. I'm so looking forward to 2008. I hope to have a recap and some goals posted soon.




Please everyone have a great time tonight but be safe and don't forget to hydrate :D

You are absolutely right with your title: just keep doing it. Don't give up, and it will all come back to you. Have a happy new year!

Dude, all they wanted were foam fingers? I bet when they start asking for you to buy them cars and college textbooks you'll long for the foam finger days...

Happy New Year!

"attire - censored"
that has to be one of my #1 favorite things about running on the treamdill vs. outdoors.

Happy New Year! :o)

Happy Birthday and Happy New Year! As a life-long Husker fan and Hawkeye grad, however, I have to question your choice of basketball loyalty. :)

Happy New Year to you. Yeah, it's a mystery why I love it here so much when I'm so intolerant.

Retail is the worst! Glad we're out of that world.

Cranky!

The happiest of new years to you, too!

Database Diva said...

Happy New Year Nancy! Let's train smarter and stay injury free this year, even if it means cross-training and (gulp) core training ;) Maybe you can show me those drunken push-ups again :D

Hi Nancy--

I'm not sure why Akismet marked so many of your recent comments as spam; maybe it doesn't like your emoticons.

I'm going to be in PR with my mom on Feb 9, so no long runs for me. Thanks for asking--I had meant to leave you a comment, but forgot.

Sorry, I kinda giggled at your treadmill commentary.


Happy New Year, Nancy! Keep up the great work!

jahowie said...

Happy New Year to you also. Happy Be-lated Birthday too!! Sorry I missed it.

Pokey said...

I have a seriously bad image in my head of your censored attire, LOL!!! :) Running where no one else can see you is seriously the ONLY plus I can find about running on the dreadmill!

Glad you had a great birthday! 40 is going to be very, very good to you! :)
