1. What happens at Run Club… Last night I found myself running with all guys at our usual Wednesday night run club (even hubs joined in). Sometimes the things we discuss on a run truly blows my mind – especially when surrounded by men. It started innocently enough with one of the guys complaining (jokingly) about my workouts clogging up his feed on FB and making him feel lazy. The next thing I knew, they were suggesting that I start logging certain other *ahem* activities. From there the conversation led to [in no particular order] poop, sex, barnyard animals, more poop, “cold wet dreams” and more. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination. What’s the craziest topic you’ve discussed on a run?
2. Don’t let your enthusiasm cloud your judgment.”… It’s time to remember those wise words from Dr. Pain. I’ve been gung ho for tri training ever since I discovered my latest ambition, but I need to find the balance. It’s not so much that I’m adding too much swimming or cycling, but that I am trying to maintain my marathon training schedule and it *might* be a tad too much. I know it’s going to take some time to adjust and experiment, but recovery is important. 9 workouts in the last 4 days might have something to do with the fact that my tempo run sucked tonight…

I told you I was jumping in with both feet…
3. Unconventional “Team-Building”… Tomorrow I’m going paintballing with work! We’re headed to an outdor gaming centre boasting “14+ Huge tree-covered Fields and Mini Scenario Maps, 20 Acre Town, Dozens of Buildings, 1000’s of Sand Bag Bunkers, Bridges, Rivers, 50+ Vehicles, Fire Trucks, Personnel Carriers, 3 Planes, 300′ Hills with 30 – 80 Degree Angle Banks, Bunkered Top to Bottom.”
My strategy will be similar to that of my recent 5K: Run like hell and try not to die.
