Osama in the Suburbs


My farmer neighbor, George, states there's a terrorist in his patch. He's named him Osama Bin Laden, but really calls him "that f***n terrorist"!! (Now you know why I really like George!!) See, this lil cute rabbit is eating all his peppers--and you gotta know George cherishes his peppers! So he made a trap--let's just see if he's smarter than our govt advisors! I'll keep you updated!

I ran 5 miles yesterday, keeping my HR between 145-150. Felt like a real good workout. But today my legs are a bit tired, so I ran 6miles, but kept the HR down around 135. I'll see how they feel tomorrow before I do my next 6miles. Might have to wait until Friday for that workout.

My pal, Fred, wants me to try a 100-mile bikeride The Bike Psychos the end of August. I'm considering it. I think we get crazier the longer we do this!!

I can't wait to hear how George makes out.

If biking is like running then we definetly get crazier the longer we do this!

You just did 50-miles, a 100 is doable ;-)

Bike Psychos is an awesome ride. This year I want to do the 200K ride.

P.S. Yes, I'll be at the Naperville Women's Sprint Tri in 1.5 weeks. Email me--we should meet up!

Man. I wanted to bike 100 miles. acutally 112 miles because I want to complete each stage of the iron man atleast once in my life. ACtually I need a better bike for it or work more on my current bike. I take it your biking all the time.

hehe heart rate only in 150 for running? I am there when I bike and when I run its usally 170. Biking tends to be in teh 165.

I am thinking if you can be talked into a 100 mile ride then maybe I can talk you into a 100 mile run as well. I know you can do either.

I haven't done a century but I have done a metric century and it was fun and easy. The rides are set up with food/rest stops alone the way and you can go at your own pace. Enjoy the scenery and companionship.

It does not take long to get the bug to just want to go farther and farther. Great work on the 50! Do that 100, what do you have to lose.. besides a Saturday :)

You seem like a "try anything once" type of gal....100 miles on the bike- just do it!! ;-)

Of course I am for the animal! Are you sure that the rabbit agrees with the given name?
