welcome back, maymay!!
i've been lurking the past week or so - life's been busy... but yay to all of you who are keeping it going! and zooey - i love the tattoo!! i've actually heard of those 4 greek words before - way cool!
EC - i remember reading a newspaper article a long time ago that said something like: if you workout to music that has the same beats-per-minute (bpm) as your target heart rate, you'll have a more efficient/better workout. what you were saying makes it sound like they may have been on to something
i confess, i only ran once last week (week 4 in my 5K training program). but i sucked it up and went on to week 5 this week - on course for the usual 3 run/walks this week and not too winded from having skipped some last week (whew!). i thought i'd be started on the 10K training by about now, but my memory is jumbled - apparently i'll start that training mid-august (race is sept 30). i'm feeling good during the running, though, so yay
and dream - i run on the treadmill almost exclusively... society frowns on it when a mom leaves her two small kids unattended while she goes for a run in the neighborhood, so i'm kinda stuck for now
