WooHoo! Twins WIN!

This morning was an 8 mile recovery run. Slow and easy, 10 minute miles. Topaz did more waiting for me than usual. I was tired from yesterday's hills but wanted to get in a slow run.

The Sandhill Cranes were crazy today. I saw three different pairs, all squeaking and squawking at each other and then one pair was bouncing off of the ground, jumping into the air, then landing on the grass. As one landed, the other would jump. Mating ritual? I don't know. They make the oddest noises. They screech. They are nervous nellies, bobbing their heads up and down, like we are even going to make a bee line for them.

We went to the Dome to watch the Twin play today. Sure was glad to get the only run during the whole game! Man, S L O W game, but at least we came out ahead. GO TWINS!

Wow, it's amazing to me that you run 8 miles as recovery, at the equivalent of 6.0 on the treadmill. I'm in awe of you!

I read your blog all the time. You are amazing! :) I was wondering if I could ask you about the leanness lifestyle and what your feelings are on it.

Thanks, Rebecca. Heather-I think LL is an awesome program. It's great for weight loss, the website is totally interactive and leads you to be accountable. Coach Dave will actually call you on the telephone if you are slackin'! I would suggest you pick up the book, then read and decided if you are up to the accountability. I followed LL to the T for three years, and for the most part still am. I am also adding more protein to my meals and using the Precision Nutrition site as well as cookbook. I love the new ideas! Both programs are very good. LL has offers much more accountablity, if one is looking for that.

Thanks Julie-
I was thinking reading the book would be a good Idea before I jump into the full on program. :)
