    Wow! Since Friday?????? How fantastic! Hope those running pants have draw strings or you're going to be leaving them behind as you run.

    I'm up to 12 miles this weeks. As long as my knees, feet, and the weather (rain forcast everyday this week) hold out, I should be at 27 miles by Tuesday. I walked 4 miles in 50 minutes yesterday, but I think I over did it a little, so today I think I'm only going 2 or 3.

    I TOTALLY blew my diet today. I went up to Jackson today and ate at Olive Garden, so I may have to do some extra laps so I can catch up and beat Mike for this week. We were neck and neck at 225 but I haven't weighed since last week so I don't really know where I stand. I'll let you all know on Sunday (my weigh-in day).

    I went to the park and walked 1mile and then I had just stared my second when it started pouring. The rain hasn't let up yet. Better luck tomorrow.

    P.S. to all AATM members of Team Voice: I'm thinking of starting a Weigh In thread on AATM since Team Voice has it's own section over there. What do you guys think? You wouldn't have to post your weight if you don't want to, just how much you lost and how much more you have to go.

    That is darn good mileage! Rain is not our friend for outdoor exercise. It is -8 degrees today, windchill -30 but Sunny. The streets and sidewalks are all ice from the inch of snow sprinkled on us yesterday. Walk didn't happen yesterday, I can't remember the last time that happened and it might not happen again today either, frostbite a real fear. My Lab just is not understanding as we go out at least 5 miles a day during cold weather. His paws and ears would freeze.

    We all blow those diets here and there remember to get back with it the next meal and work it off the next day and you should be fine.

    I wish I could walk around POR right about now!

    Where do you live? It is 36 degrees with a wind chill of 28 here. I know that sounds wonderful to you all up north, but down here that is down right cold. I wish I was in Florida!

    Due West of Lake Michigan, Illinois/Wisconsin boarder. Lake effect weather is a real bite! My son's dorm and actually whole campus is 20 feet from the Lake Front. Great for spring/fall, (can you say PARTY) horrible for winter! Pretty to look at from indoors, window!

    Ok good, I didn't know that threads could be moved, so I thought everything was deleted. Thanks Mickeybabe for moving the Marathon Training and Team Voice threads to a more suitable place.

    Gabe- What did you learn yesterday?

    Lori- I have thought about wearing them later on, but I don't think I'm ready for them just yet. By the way, I like your ticker, I might steal your Idea, lol.

    Actually the risk of injury doing that is far greater than any benefit you would receive by training that way. But if you can find a nice steep hill to walk up you get even more benefit w/o the risk.

    Wearing ankle weights acutally throws off your stride and can lead to injury, especially in some of the small stabilizer muscles in your leg. I'm not trying to be critical at all but I just thought you would want to know! :0)
