{{{Amanda}}} I lost my mom early Feb of 2012 and know she was smiling on us as the girls and I all did the Princess the end of that month.

To all the Warriors leaving to do WDW weekend have a safe trip and a good run!

Oh Amanda, I'm so sorry about your mum. I'm certain that every bit of unexpected energy during race weekend will be from her!

Pam I did wonder what you guys had done to your cross fit instructor to make them leave you for 7 months!!!! Brilliant that you've been able to keep going with the exercise and that your new year has started strong.

John Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year too!

Jeremy Hope you're enjoying WDW!!!! Aaaahh to be there now (not writing essays!)

Jim Hope you're doing OK and got a bit of a break from work over the holiday period.

Me I went to get new running shoes and the lady said my stride was 'sporadic' making it difficult to decide which type to go for. It didn't matter in the end as they did not have a single running shoe in my size!!!! The evil Nike's live on! Got out for a run yesterday and did a 7.5 mile run after Christmas, which is my longest in ages so that felt good after all of the overindulging.

Take care everyone and Warriors heading to WDW: have a wonderful time!
(extra hug for Amanada again!)

Happy Sunday Warriors!!,

Unfortunately I have been absent for way too long........ Not much is going on down here in warm, wintery Florida.

My training for the Mickey has absolutely sucked eggs this year. I have done no runs longer than a 1/2 marathon at all this year. At. All. Sooooooo, my expectations this year are really low. I am planning to latch onto the 4 1/2 hour pace group and hang on as long as I can. Between that, lots of pain killers and anti inflammatories, lots of Reese's Peanut Butter cups & KT Tape, we'll see what happens. Should be fun! Or at least interesting.

My DD and my acupuncturist sez I have really tight ITB's. Lovely. My DD sez to use a roller on my hips and thighs to loosen them up. Did that for the first time today. Have not been in so much pain since I ran into a truck 2 years ago. That s*** hurts!! !!! !!!!!! But I DID feel "looser" afterward.

Hope everyone else is doing well. Looking forward to hopefully seeing some bodies next weekend. I'll be the guy in the black tights and (non-WISH) fluorescent green short sleeve shirt grabbing his hip, cussing and wincing. ;-). Look me up!

Amanda, I just noted about your mom's passing. My sincere sympathies.......:-(


Peace, Love and Prayers to all my Warrior friends in the new year....:-)

Hi everyone,

I had a good vacation. I was expecting busy, buy some days were better than others. New Years Eve at EPCOT was pretty good as long as you didn't want to ride TT or Soarin'. The CM's did a good job at keeping things so you could move around. The Busiest day was Jan 2nd. Fantasyland was swamped most of the afternoon. I went there primarily to eat Lunch at BOG.

With all the walking at Disney the knee did very well, although my feet got sore and tender. I ended up buying some new shoes at the New Balance Outlet in Orlando while I was on Vacation. I bought some 1140's they are more of a stability shoe than I normally wear. With the extra running I was doing I'm wondering if I needed a more suportive show. I wore them around IOA and US to test them out and they felt pretty good. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get out and do some running/walking.

Hey Warriors!

Happy Marathon Day!! Finished the Hottest. Marathon. Ever. (for me at least......). Was hoping to hit 4:30, but knew, due to my really extreme lack of LR's that was probably a pipe dream. Yeah...................... it was. This WAS my first run longer than 1/2 M length since Goofy 2011. Slacker I am. Finished in 4:57, which I am actually really pleased with. I had a SEVERE bout of GI upset around mile 24ish which really slowed me down for a bit and my feet were just painful as hell for the second half. I stuck with the 4:30 pace group for the first half and then they slowly faded off into the distance (not unexpectedly.....).

All in all a fun, but physically uncomfortable day. I've pretty much decided to close the book on Full marathons. They just tend to be too physically demanding on these old (yet fun filled!!) bones. Also means that today I laid to rest the silly idea of ever doing a full IM. I think I'm just going to stick to half's there too.........

But the GOOD point is that I can now do all my events with my Lovely Luscious Bride :-D........... Because there is NO WAY in Holy Hand Grenades she will EVER do a full................

Now. Off to catch a few Z's before dinner at Sci-Fi tonight!

Have fun Warriors! Hopefully the days find you healthy and happy!

Hurray!!!! You did it Jim and in a very impressive time given the issues and lack of long run! Sorry you feel it will be the last marathon, but what an awesome final outing!

Rest up, have fun and get planning those events with your luscious bride

Congratulations Jim on your Marathon. I would hate for you to say "never again" for a full marathon. I'm not saying you ever have to do one again, but you never know what the future may hold. Decide what you enjoy doing and go for it.

Congrats Jim! And John!
I am GOOFY!!! I actually did ok. About a 6 min PR on the marathon despite heat and humidity.
I mostly walked the half and finished about 3:04. Around mile 10 I realized that I could pick up the pace and finish sub-3 hours but I really wanted to save myself for the full.
I started slow for the full and pulled off negative splits. I was hoping for 5:30 but it wasn't meant to be with the weather. I finished about 5:52. Very happy that I ran smart. Foot held up well although I'm away of the injury now. It doesn't really hurt though.

Amanda

Amanda! You did it You are a goofy queen! I'm thrilled it went so well and you did such an amazing time. Brilliant news that your foot held out too, although sorry it's sore now. Time for plenty of ice and pride

Happy Inauguration Day Warriors!! (& MLK Day too!)

pretty much over the Marathon recovery period. I did 2 short hour"ish" bike rides last week + a few trips to the gym.

I have started my 1/2 IM training this week. Ugh. Soooooooooooo out of shape for that. It also means I need to start dragging my lazy a** back to the pool. Much swimming awaits. Bleh.

I did a bike/run brick today totaling about 28 miles. Not too bad, but uncomfortable going from the bike to the run. Still 4 months out though, so it's all good right now....................

BTW, Winter? That cold part of the year? Yeah, it's pretty much ignoring NE Florida so far............. Warm ride & run today. Actually shirtless for a good part of my workout just to stay cool.

Amanda --- Great job on the Goofy! I've done 2, but seriously cannot fathom ever doing it again. My fun meter just does not have enough space for that any more............

Kate - Glad to see you'll be coming across the pond for the W&D. Barring the Zombie Apocalypse, my Lovely Luscious Bride & I will be there!

Jim-keep on saying to yourself....it feels so good to get back to the training and eventually you WILL believe it.

Kate-welcome back to the States and train smart, no injuries allowed.

Amanda- and next year Dopey

Jeremy-sore feet = much better than hurting knees. Put the new shoes to healthy use but be careful.

AFM-shoulder MRI = nothing much will help other than replacement....NOT

WDW Marathon Weekend, Kathy and I had a great 5K walk then Kathy walked with DD in the Half. Considering that training hardly took place they did well.

For me the Half went very well and the Full was fun plus I got my McFlurry. Third Dopey weekend in a row, looking forward to 2014. At 62.5yo I started the year being Dopey and at almost 63.5yo will finish the year with the Space Coast Half Marathon just 3 weeks after IMFL. I'll call that being a Dummy.

Monday after the Marathon was a drive home and rest day. Tuesday started my end of March 70.3 training. 24 mile bike + 1000 yd swim. Wed. was 4.5 mile walk/jog and 1100yd swim. Thursday was a wicked 55 mile bike with racing boys. Friday a 5.5 mile jog/walk/run and too cold for a swim. Saturday a 55 mile hard bike. Sunday a 11 mile walk/jog/run then 1700yd swim. Yesterday a 101 mile bike ride and today is resting.

Have to say that except for the bad shoulder, tingling and numbness in arms and hands, cramping of left foot when swimming, right side of neck always in pain, I'm having fun. Growing old is for young people but at my age I'm doing better than many.

To all, please stay healthy and train carefully.

Congratulations Amanda! I knew you were Goofy all along!
Kate~ I'm so glad you get to do the Wine and Dine! I hope your training goes well and is injury free
Jim~ good luck in the pool , I made a tri my fitness goal for the year so when Princess (and the school swimming season) is over I have to hit the pool too!
John~ sounds like you are doing great! I hope you find something that will help with the shoulders!

As for me I'm looking forward to Princess (if not the last few long runs indoors), wish we were having Spring weather instead of sub zero wind chills.

Have a great week of workouts everyone!
