New thread. I got tired of starting a new thread every week so lets try monthly, plus we just don't have enough people posting.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Sunday I ran 11.5 miles<br><br><br><br>
Monday I hiked 2 miles with the dogs...I tweaked my foot fairly bad on Sunday so it was really sore.<br><br><br><br>
Today I will run 5 miles on the treadmill.

I'll start posting here since I love to work out and do it regularly, although I'm old and slow and won't set any records!!!<br><br><br><br>
Thursday - too hot at 7am to run (it was already 80!) and so I did my Tae Bo Extreme CD - go Billy go! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:"><br><br><br><br>
Wednesday - 3 mile run - very hot.<br><br><br><br>
Tuesday - 4.5 mile run, .5 mile walk. This is my usual workout, and the running part takes me 45 minutes to complete.

THanks for keeping the Hamsters alive. I'll try to remember to come here. I'm taking an off day. I'm busy and a bit under the weather and need to rest today.<br><br><br><br>
Poppy. Welcome to the "old and slow" Hamsters!

This morning I finally got my regular run in. I left the house at 7am in an attempt to beat the heat. I was drenched when I got back home.<br><br><br><br>
I've been taking an 8 ounce bottle of water on hot mornings. Anything heavier bothers me (to carry in my hand), and I can slip the 8 oz. in my pocket for a break from carrying it (although it bugs me there, too!). Does anyone have any better solutions? I don't think I'd like to wear a belt, but if there's a comfortable one, maybe I'd give it a try. thanks.

I guess I'm considered "young and slow". I'm 26 but I run at about the same pace as you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

As for the belt, I have tried many.<br><br><br><br>
My favorite by far is <a href="http://www.fuelbelt.com" target="_blank">www.fuelbelt.com</a><br><br><br><br>
I have this one: <a href="http://www.fuelbelt.com/qu4bebl.html" target="_blank">http://www.fuelbelt.com/qu4bebl.html</a><br><br><br><br>
Most of my other ones I never wore for very long but this one I have worn for almost two years now. Although it does go aroudn your waist, the bottles just don't bounce as much as a regular pack. After the first couple of times I've used it I hardly notice that I even have anything around my waist now.

I just noticed that they only have the small in the one I have now. They have more options with this one: <a href="http://www.fuelbelt.com/en4be.html" target="_blank">http://www.fuelbelt.com/en4be.html</a>

The sizes are pretty much right on too. Measure where you want it to sit. I like mine to sit a bit lower more torwards my hips so if that is where you want it to sit, make sure you measure over there.<br><br><br><br>
One other reason why I like this type of belt is that it has a bit of stretch to it. I don't know if that is what makes it so comfortable to wear. It isn't too strechy though where the thing feels like it is flopping around.

I stopped by a local running store to see if they had these, and they did. Unfortunately, I'm going to need a medium and they only had x-small and small. But I did get the chance to see one, put it on, and get the feel of it. I think it will work. I'm going to order one on line in a day or two if I can't find one around town. Thanks Cap't!

Hi all! Got a run in this morning - and the heat has broken. What a relief, and what a difference in the run. It was actually fun again!
