Monday Again?????????

Damn, did those two days go by quick! It appears that our weather is trying to make a correction and get on track to late April temps. Seems like we've been in a grey wind tunnel for the past month.

Is it just me or have more runners turned to Crossfit to build strength and improve their running? I've been doing some of the Crossfit exercises on my own and even programed my own workouts. Have any of you sipped the Crossfit kool-ade?

I'm actually running on a consistent basis but nothing longer than 4 miles. If I feel any type of twinge or funny feeling in my knee I just stop! Not like in the middle of the street stop but stop and walk the remainder. So, I keeping my fingers crossed for a truely running summer.

I tried to purchase a Boston Strong Tee from the website and they were sold-out in no time! Damn charitable runners................. HA

We had a local marathon in Lansing and there was definitely a larger police presence, even to the point of checking bags.

My spring TNT team is headed to their events in the next two weeks, so I'll be training without them. That damn empty nest syndrome is starting to creep in.

1) Second week of receiving supartz injections for my knee. I think they're helping but I'm also trying to run more. Duh!!!!!!

2) Is the Mitten state the only area where the sun refuses to show? I am so tired of wind and clouds....... I'm thinking of getting a sun lamp to run with.......

3) Is it just me or have any of you noticed that beside the media, the only other people really talking about the terrorist attack are runners? It's almost like it didn't happen or the fact that it was a running event it doesn't effect the majority of people.

Rally for Boston

I've MIA from blogging for a very good reason. I'm lazy.............

I am running, albeit slow but I'm running.

Here is a clip from my Tuesday evening running group as a tribute to the victims of the Boston marathon explosions.
