I think you got this. What is your training like? Do you have a day or two where you focus on power only, like sprinting and such?

What I do is to run 5 miles one day, 10 miles the next, then 5 again ,then 15 miles....then repeat. Intersped with Swimming and Yoga alternate days....

I seem to be getting a bit faster, that's for sure!

That ok?

Sounds pretty good to me. And with swimming and yoga, you must be really fit. You're now my new motivator ;)

Well, when you work at night your days are free, right? Tummie, I'm 40 so I NEED to keep myself fit. I got to about 27 and I thought..."Oh ****! I'll soon be 30! Gotta keep myself in shape!" and so I have tried to....hard sometimes...but I'm quite addicted to it all. Thanks hun... Sammy Jo xx

Oh wow lol. I'll be 27 this June and I'm definitely thinking along those same lines hahahaha. But still, 15 miles @ an average of a mile every 6 min @ 40 yrs!?!?! That's really awesome!

Well...gotta practice running away from the police, in my business! LOL!

I just love keeps me sane! They say that a healthy body leads to a healthy mind....

Hahahaha the po-po. And yeah that's true. A healthy body does lead to a healthy mind. You know, ever since last Dec, I've been slacking, just doing enough to maintain I guess. But from chatting here, I'm really intent on picking up the slack soon. Like really soon.

I will give myself this: My lats seem to have gotten stronger through practicing pull-ups, even though my max is not at 30 at once like I want it to be (it's at 15 at once now)

Correction: Overhand pull ups
Posted on 09:51AM on Feb 5th, 2011 does get in the way at times...especially at xmas. It's hard to keep yourself going....but, you gotta do what you gotta do....

Oh yeah. I've actually gotten sick this time around and I haven't been sick in a loooooong time. Wasn't too bad but definitely got in the way.

So...there you are. These things happen. When I get ill, of course, I have the same issues....just gotta get yourself well and then push a bit more each time/week etc.... BUT don't be hard on yourself.... Sammy Jo xx
