Thursday Thoughts

* Today is Day 1 of what could be a very hard couple of months for me. I will be going for my MRI to explain a "suspicious" spot which looks like a stress fracture on my pelvic bone. I will have results hopefully tomorrow. This is what could have been causing the occasional knee,leg and groin pain. I'll be upset I'll just remain in a 'state of shock' that this is coming a month before I should be starting to train for my marathon. Life happens...make lemonade.

* Went to Tot Music with my Lucas yesterday. It was so interesting to see him without his tag-a-long, or shall I say 'big, a bit bossy, and lovingly overprotective sister. He was so shy in the beginning which he can tend to be but if she was there he would have tagged along with whatever she was doing. I'm glad we made the decision to bring him to something of his own...he loved the time.

* If it doesn't get warmer in NY sooner I am going to go nuts. I walked into work today and it was snowing. SNOWING People SNOWING!

* Realized another reason I like to blog. As I was about to write and complain on and on about my injury I thought..."Really Annette, it could be worse. It is, what it is...keep busy...keep focused". Blogging allows (forces you) to think about your thoughts. It also allows for understanding and hearing other peoples perspectives or opinions...which helps (sometimes)lol.

* Today is day 4 of my cleanse. I haven't really spoken about because I'm not sure what I want to say about it yet. It has definitely made me WAY more aware of what I put in my body. It has made me realize how much junk I was truly eating and the reasons why I was eating it. I definitely feel more, shall I say, mind and in body. As much as I don't like giving up my sugar and caffeine, I have to say it isn't has hard as I had originally thought. I'll go into it more later...

It's a Date

A Runner with a Mission-click here to see coming attraction!

Looking forward to seeing this...I read about it on a few other running sites. Looks like a meaningful and inspirational flick before my "real" marathon training starts!
March 31st 1 NIGHT ONLY!

My First Duathlon

Wow! What a fast, fun, exciting, emotional day! We woke at the crack of dawn (although we may have actually woke a bit earlier than that.) I showered, got dressed and waited till K arrived. When she arrived,was when my foggy"ish" feeling began to set in. I hate this fog, its almost like that outer body experience you get on your wedding day, like you are watching someone else do what you are actually doing. I'm pretty sure I was in this fog until I went to sleep that night! This IS what I do, when I'm experiencing something new for the first time. I would love to practice being there, being more present, the FIRST time I do something.

When I got there it was intimidating and exciting at the same time. We had to rack our bikes and set up our transition area. I loved setting up my transition area. I loved having to figure out what I was going to need and use and having to put it in a certain order so that you didn't have to fumble. I'm sure there are more techniques to doing this quicker that I will learn in time. There are some really great Tri blogs out there (see the side bar) that go into more detail with those types of techniques.

The run part was first. It was about a 2.50 run (remember I lost all info on my GARMIN ARG!) I ran this in 20:43.216. I was very pleased with this being it was less than 9 minute miles! That's a first!

Next was the first transition- aka- T1. I did this in 3:03.896. I have to tell you I giggled a lot during this one...I laugh when I'm nervous...and my "Sista" was making sure I didn't put my huge hat under my will understand when you see a picture. I was pysched when leaving for this transition-here I was about to start my first bike portion of a race! Such an awesome feeling!

Next, bike. My most difficult part because it is so new to me. I loved it and found myself saying out loud "This is so f*ck*n awesome". I really enjoyed it and found it hysterical that they didn't close the race down to the many interesting people out that morning. My path was sometimes interrupted by horses, squirrels, tourists, dogs and at one point a hot dog cart! You definitely had to pay attention. I also read that the southern end of the loop is dubbed "horse shit alley" and I'm pretty sure I figured out why! It was so much fun that none of that even just made it even more fun! Hardest part about the bike was that my toes were KILLING ME! They were so FROZEN it was like I had ice blocks in my shoes. Oh and my time was 54:25.856 for 12 miles. Thats an average of 4.32 miles. Not to shabby for my first time. (oh and if anyone has pointers on how to pull your drink out and ride at the same time- let me know! I had to pull over!)

Then came my next transition. T2. I did that in 1:52.969. Apparently, I can undress faster then get dressed!?! I actually realized I did this much quicker and stopped for a moment to check and make sure I was dressed correctly! One of the guys working in the transition areas yelled, "you're good- GO!" so I went.

The last part was the last run. This was hard. My legs didn't hurt as much as they usually do, I thank Sue for the cadence pointers, which I believe helped this. The hard part was I had a difficult time breathing, catching my breath after the bike and transition. I ran this in 19.36 (same distance as the first..around 2.50 miles).

Overall, I was really happy and proud of myself for succeding in this HUGE accomplishment for the first time. I have no regrets and look forward to my next one! I do wish that Scott and the kids could have came but it was way too cold to torture them at that hour. Next time I will make sure its warmer- for them and my toes sake!

So ANGRY at you Mr. Garmin

I am soooooo annoyed at my Garmin watch. Came home from the duathlon to look at my times and its telling me I have NO NEW INFORMATION???? For real? I mean I know it wasn't apparent to some that I just ran/bike/ran over 16 miles...but did my Garmin have to throw it in my face too?

...Maybe I'm just tired. ;(

It's 4:52

I definitely think people tell me an earlier time than when they are really going to arrive because of all my "There's no way I'm going to wake up" talk. As they get to know me better they will have figured out that I like to do some of that wonderful "self talk" and I'm used to the "I can'ts" or "How will I evers?". The truth is, underneath that all, I'm super organized (lol stop laughing Scott) and usually very well prepared for what's about to happen. In about 3 hours I will be doing my FIRST DUATHLON' excited!!!!

Tri Training Week 2

Today was the bike training part of our tri class. I'm glad we had this today because tomorrow is my FIRST DUATHLON! I actually learned a few things that I'm doing wrong and that could also have something to do with the hip,butt,groin pain I've been having. We went over cadence, pedal stroke and positioning and heart rate. The class consist of about 6 guys and now two girls. I absolutely love going to it. I was disturbed at first that it was at 7am on a Saturday but after going a few times I realized that is part of the training also. Tomorrows race packet pick up is at 7:30 so that has me waking at 4 and leaving by 5. Ouch! My a$$ better get used to waking up earlier! I'm sure adrenaline will compensate for my desperate need for sleep.

Oh...and some advice for people that are talking to someone that is doing a race or something for the first time...Here's what NOT to say:
1. Don't go to fast around the turns...last year so many people were crashing.
2. OOOhhh you're riding central park? Watch out for Harlem Hill!
3. It's fine why are you nervous?
4. If you are nervous maybe you are not ready !?! (really?)
5. Why are you doing this to yourself-stop torturing yourself! lol Mafia lol

Wish me luck folks! Hopefullly I'll be able to snap a few shots!

Teaching, Tri Class, and How they Relate (Well to me at least)

As I nervously stood in the chilly water on Saturday, I found my thoughts drifting. Me, drifting? I know a shocker. (Not) I found myself thinking about all the new challenges I’ve been putting myself up to and how I’ve benefitted from them in other ways than just the physical ones. One of the best things that all of these opportunities have given me is a fresh look on how it feels to learn. Whether it be my kids at home or my kids at school. How it feels to not have something mastered, to be new at something, to struggle, to be the new guy or the short one (don’t ask). It allows me to be the student and not the teacher. This role reversal is good for the soul and great for teaching. It allows me to have more patience, it allows me to see passed perfection and look more for progress but most of all I now have ‘fresh’ experiences that I can speak about to my students. They love to hear how I fell off my bike or how I swallowed about a gallon of water in my last pool session. They love to know that I too, have to work to get to where I want to be. I guess my point is…If you don’t know what it feels like to learn, how in the world are you going to teach?

P.S...blogged twice so make sure to check out the cuties below!

Momma Monday

Love, love the running but lets remember what always comes I'll take any silly title excuse to show a pic of the cuties! This is in Myrtle Beach. We actually made it into their newspaper because we were the 'crazy NY'ers' in their bathing suits. It was 75! What do they expect!!

This is a pic of Lucas trying to make friends with a statue. could you not want to bite this kid!?!

Don't Judge Me...

or my music just enjoy us both! There is usually a reason I like a particular song, whether it be the beat, the lyrics or who is singing it. Some of these songs help me relax on a long run, some help me keep a pace and some get me pumped up. I can promise some WILL make your legs move faster...even if for only a second! If a few songs seem slow--they are-- I put them there because on half-marathons, and I'm pretty sure it will be similar for the marathon, its very easy to get all pumped up and start off too fast.

Debbie Downer and Her Pick-Me-Ups

So here's the deal, I'm down for the count again. Now I know what my mom and most of you might say right away..."Annette, maybe you're doing too much-you shouldn't run, its hurting you" and I say, "Nope, but thanks for the advice" lol.

The problem is that GI Jannette (that's me for now) doesn't stretch when she is feeling fine. She(me)is not proactive when it comes to doing what it takes to stay in the game. All joking aside I need to remember that my body isn't as young as it used to be and I NEED TO STRETCH. I need to spend 15-20 minutes before and 15-20 minutes after stretching. Pure un·a·dul·ter·at·ed stretching. I can't be doing a mock duathlon and then running 5miles uphill the next day without rest or stretching.

Now I say this because I am sitting here forced to be sedentary. I was told not to run, bike, swim , nothing. These instructions come from the one and only Mr. Jason (yes, he's back) and I will listen to him because he fixed me the first time. That's where the Debbie Downer part comes in. I'm a bit down because doing all those things IS my cup of coffee in the morning, its what gives me the umph to get through the day and its what I look forward to doing at the end of the day or on the weekends(aside from playing with my 2 wonderful children and having new lovely conversations with the hub ;).

I've agreed to cancel my Saturday 9 mile race which is not something I would have done without persuasion by Mr. PT Genius Jason or pure pain in the groin area lol. So what am I going to do? Mope around and feel bad and eat lots of Charleston Chews..nah I did that last night. Today and tonight I'm going to take some time to intro you into one of my biggest playlist! It could make or break a good or bad day or difficult run...or in my house can cause a huge after dinner dance party (which some of you have experienced!) Now, on that note...not all people enjoy the same music but give some of my choices a try if your playlist is getting stale and PLEASE, PLEASE share some of yours that you have that get you moving, make you feel good, are great for a quiet get the hint...I'll take any of your favorite suggestions. I would love you all to share some of your favorites because I love adding to my list!

Sleep and "Oldness"

Okay so as my years have slowly been ticking away I've noticed that sleep is a hardcore need. If I lose two hours, even one hour of sleep I am grumpier, hungrier, exhausted and just totally off for about two days. TWO DAYS!! Its nuts how I can challenge myself to run up crazy mad hills or run an 11 miler on a weekend but getting to sleep on time is like an all-out battle. I mean seriously, what am I doing?? Watching the Bachelor?? Labeling the toy boxes in the toy room?? (actually i was super proud of that anal chore I finished at 11:30 the other night lol...I'll show you pictures!) This is a challenge of mine that I have to work on more as the countdown to the official marathon training start day approaches. This momma needs sleep! Some serious REM sleep.

Yes, It's true...and yes, I saved it for my blog!

So Saturday I met up with 'the K' at 7 am to go for a mock duathlon that we will be doing in two weeks. It was really tough riding through those hills in Mt. Sinai. Who knew Cedar Beach was that beautiful?? Apparently K! Honestly, it was a beautiful ride so when I become a strong biker its some place I want to frequent often. I love finding new places right around the corner and I think the bike is going to do that for me since you can get more places faster.

So lets talk about that faster part... We just got done with the mock run/bike/run and its a friggin struggle! One minute, I'm trying to keep up speed and another minute I'm trying to just make it up the hill without falling off the bike (we'll talk about those clip on shoes another time!). When you get off your bike to run again its the weirdest feeling. You feel fine on the bike and then when you get off to run your legs feel like a ton of bricks. It is difficult to push yourself but what's weirdest is when I look down at the watch I'm always (okay, usually) going faster than my normal speed.

There goes that word again...SPEED. So what I didn't tell anyone is that after I got into my car to go home and take my daughter to dance...I GOT PULLED OVER. I was on such a high from the workout, my music playing and here I was in a vehicle that could go as fast as I wanted without needing so much physical power. You know that little "oops" feeling you get when you realized you did something wrong or not so right? Well I did that when I sped by one car and then another...and ok another. Now, I'm always a little heavy on the foot but this time it was a little much. That's when the whir-oo, whir-oo happened.

"Mam, what's going on?" was all he said. LMAO. So me and my spewing started to tell him exactly what I just told you- "I was running, then biking, then I needed to get my daughter, and I didn't realize the speed but I knew I needed to get home but then I realized my speed and that's when I slowed down and did you know that you can't tell how fast you are going after you get off your bike, and I have to get to dance, I'm so so sorry I won't do this again- I will take this as a speeding lesson learned". I'm not sure he knew what to say so after a long pause he goes, "Okay mam, lets let this one slide on the merit of being honest... and please...settle yourself down there." LMAO....

BTW-here was the run/bike/run from K's watch (I was a bit frazzled and forgot to turn my watch on after the first run!)map if you are interested...or not!

Today is a Good Day

I haven't really been talking or shall I say blogging about what's been going on in my school district. Its been super stressful and I kinda went with "if you don't talk about it - it won't happen" approach. Not a realistic approach but an approach! Education is in a bad place right now and districts are hurting big time. I am not going to go into all the specifics...long story short my school was in jeopardy of closing, teachers are losing their jobs and we still don't have a contract. All this stress, you could imagine how it became easy, almost a need for me to just go for a long run to let it all out!

Last night, we found out one positive, which is they are going to wait on closing a school until they put enough time to look at ALL the ramifications it would have. Hopefully, the school district will be able to redistrict, utilize the classrooms and schools more efficiently, they can keep services the same, provide quality educationa and save some teachers jobs. How hard in these financial times must it be to lose your income, your benefits!?!

So how is this a good day? Keeping the school open means the board is thinking...and not just jumping into a quick fix that will cost us all more later. Today is a good day.

Monkey Business

So today's a day off in the running world but not in the momma and teacher world! Went to work early today to finish report cards, IEP's, parent phone calls, and for a principal visit for a student that STOLE my M&M's lol!

Then I came home to my daughter who apparently decided she wanted to be a monkey. Tail (thanks Marie) and all. We made eggs and she insisted a monkey lays eggs too. Can we say monkey obsessed? After a long battle of ..."Monkeys do not lay eggs Brooke...Yes mommy, THEY DO lay eggs" turns out that she saw an episode of Curious George where George was curious about eggs hatching and sat himself down on a few that were nesting. Hence, the "Monkeys DO lay eggs" theory from Brooke. She's upstairs right now with #1 A pink and purple nightgown. #2 Pink shoes and #3 A monkey tail- SLEEPING! Yes, don't you worry...I will take a picture after she is fast asleep so my mega flash doesn't wake her. Too tired for wake-the-kids-up mode today.

Oh..Ps...i plan on thriving tonight. Bed at 9! Take that sore legs!

Holy Shite

Lately, the hills of Nissequogue have been kicking my @ss! I almost became emotional...(seriously) on one of them because I let the thought "I can't do this" enter for a moment....just a lil' second of that kind of thinking led me to thinking about ALL the mileage for the marathon, to OMG I already signed up for it-I can't back out now, to what the hell am I going to blog about with all this craziness! So I decided let me write about those bastard hills. I haven't decided yet which way I like to conquer them best. There is either A)Look down, concentrate on taking small short steps and don't focus on how hard or long the hill is -just take it step-by-step or B)Focus on the top and pick little points along the way as mini finish lines. I guess you can look at this with daily hills (problems) what's best?? I'm not sure I figured out the answer...but I do know it feels damn good to get to the top and be done with it! Did 10.75 and the last hill today I'm climbing is the stairs into my nice, cozy, fluffy mm good.

Lets see if this Garmin thing works...if it will see where I ran.

So it worked! I added the map to the mock duathlon page legs didn't know what to do when I got off that bike! I ran a 7:37 mile!!! WHAT?! Who do I think I am...Scott? (wait was that a compliment?! I think it may have been...although i don't get runners trot after 3 miles lmao!)

Where Two become One

So some of you know that I have another blog. Blogging is a definite release for me and also a way for me to share recent updates with the kids with my family that lives farther away. Now the problem is I'm super crazy busy and its hard to keep up with both. So don't be surprised if you see my little buggers pop up on these posts!!! were forewarned!

So one of the biggest problems with runners is finding time, one of the biggest problems with being a mother is finding time, one of the biggest problems with teaching is finding time (except in the summer he he). I'm sure you see the pattern that has become my dilemma. TIME! I try my hardest not to go for a run or bike or anything during my "prime time" with the kids. I make it a point to leave my phone in the car...its their time. Its very easy nowadays to not be in the moment, I've caught myself there many of times.

So, I have been waking at 6 before they wake up or I leave at 7ish when they go back to sleep. Once in a while I will bring them with me to the gym (which they love), for a ride or even a run (although its so heavy for me now-that requires a hubrun). This age is really difficult because right now...I AM THEIR UNIVERSE!!! I BE THE BOMB!!! lol....seriously though, Lucas latches onto my leg now as if I am his only chance of surviving this cruel, cruel world! Sometimes this can be a bit overbearing but don't get me wrong...I love it.

Tonight I rode Tour de France in spin (don't ask...I'll explain another time) and when I got home I was all lovey, mothery, wanting to snuggle my babies. The problem was the "babies" were sleeping...or on their way. I walked into Brooke's room and caught an open eye, then a smirk....then a pink shoe. I mean really? How could I not break out in laughter, get my camera then jump into bed for a quick photo shoot of shoes and downward facing dogs!

Brooke and I 'showing our shoes'

Who knew that she knew yoga??


So the new thing on blogs(or maybe I'm just recently hearing more about it)is that companies are using them for advertising. If you think about it, its pretty darn smart. They get wired around in seconds by thousands of readers that are totally into what they are selling. There are some rules and stipulations but nothing too of them is to put a reference of that persons blog on your blog...hence this entry. So if you are a runner, or biker, trekker lol, love to ski or play soccer you would be a candidate for this giveaway! So give it a try..what the hell. My SIL just won 150 buckaroonies to Old Navy by answering a question on another blog. So here's the blog...5 Miles Past Empty go visit!

That's a Great Question

So to answer some of your questions from the comment sections....

Magic Bullet- THE ANSWER TO CLEANING ANNOYING BLENDERS!!! Honestly a must have. I love it for making smoothies, love it for grinding and pureeing things for the kids, love that I can make three different smoothies for three different people in five minutes and I LOVE, LOVE that it takes two minutes tops to clean.

Snacking- Yes, I snack! I love the kids Clif bars, the brownie one the most. I usually have this as my morning snack. Afternoon, I usually try pretzels, or cheese and crackers. Night- I have a skinny cow to fill my urge when I have it!...
(PMS week- WHATEVER THE HELL I WANT!) Honestly, with the running I don't limit myself too much if I crave it BUT the cravings have stopped more.

Woke Up This Morning (in the tune of Soprano song)

Woke up this morning and loved that I rushed out of bed to get my 3 miles in before the start of the day. That IS NOT an easy thing for me to do! I've never been a morning person and I am slowly trying to train myself to get out of that late night pattern. Some days its easy and some days not so much!
