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!
Pam-watch what you wish for, the weather might just turn HOT and HUMID for the Princess. Right now it's 62F and I'm cold, thinned blood ha-ha. We could get another heat wave of high 70's and low 80's. Not the best for a race but great Chamber of Commerce weather.

Best of luck.

Jim- yay I get to see you and your lovely wife! Wonderful that your training has begun for half IM (I'm supporting John's positivity drive!) it will be FANTASTIC to get back in the pool

Pam- ooh your first tri- you guys are amazing. Such a great thing to do and so few ppl can physically do them so I think you're all awesome!

John- argh for so much ouchiness.I know you're always magically optimistic, but I'm still sorry your shoulder's painful. That week of training was intense hey! I cant promise injury free training, sorry. I've never had injury free training for an event!

Jeremy- how are you doing? Did you manage to get some events in the diary for motivation?

Me- my flights are booked!! My parents are going out the week before, hoping to see Halloween stuff then I fly over thurs before half marathon. I really hope they don't change the date now- they emailed me from runDisney so I'm taking their word for it! Ran 8 miles on TM this morning as we still have icy snow :D

I'm probably going for the Wine & Dine Half, 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....................

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............
Thank you! I swear the 1/2 IM training makes the Goofy seem likes child's play!

Amanda- and next year Dopey

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.
Go you! Always impressive!!!

Very Goofy!!! I, too, am hoping for temperatures above the 11F it was this morning when I left for work. Maybe I'll see you at the Princess!

I'm starting to think about training a little for the Princess. i'm planning to make it a fun race rather than a goal race. I'm also signed up for a Half Marathon in Central Park in April. I'm hoping for a PR that race.

I can still feel where my foot injury is/was but it isn't hurting right now. I'm avoiding speed work for now but I managed 9 miles this morning.
I can't say W&D is 100% as we're trying to be fiscally responsible this year but I think it's likely!

Howdy Warriors!!

It's frankly, a sucky day in St Augustine. We had a member of our department pass away suddenly while running 3 days ago and his funeral was today. It has been quite a difficult week for the department coping with this and Kenny's funeral proceedings were extremely difficult and emotional. About 500 people there, including all of our members not on the job today.

I've been to numerous funerals during my time here and in the Navy and usually have no problem compartmentalizing things way down deep, but for some reason today was difficult. Really. Difficult.

I guess ya' just never know what the future holds...................... Bummer.

Anywhoo.............. came home afterwards to an empty house (My LLB is in O'town this weekend with her mom and our DD visiting giraffes (No. Seriously. They ARE visiting giraffes!! ). Rather than sit here and be all mopey and sad I managed to get out of the house for an hour long bike ride.

Hopefully I'll get my lazy a** up early and do a nice brick workout and hit the weights at the gym for a while........Hopefully. That "L" word keeps creeping up a lot lately. :-P

Stay safe (& healthy) Warriors!! Make sure ya' tell your loved ones that you DO love 'em!!

Jim that's really sad news. Sorry you and your co-workers are facing such a difficult time. Take the time to look after yourself over the next few days.

Yeah, I could stand and average like that too! Congrats Jim!

Final weeks before Princess, and my last really long run is done!- the packing piles have started LOL, but I need to work on my costume yet. I've been making my old race t-shirts into quilt squares I have 12 done now to size and arrange them into a quilt top. Then I have some of the backs (especially the Disney ones with the route on them) to make into the back of the quilt. Hopefully this will help keep me busy during my Taper, so I don't use my time feeding my face LOL.

Have a good week all!

Pam-Kathy will be making a quilt also. Just too many shirts and too little storage. Enjoy your taper and rock at the Princess.

JimB-Good job with the half. Better times are just around the bend.

to all

Jim- great run in the half, especially after such a challenging few weeks.

Pam- I love the idea of making a quilt out of running shirts. I'm sure the distraction during taper will be very welcome! Fantastic that you got your last long run in

John- how are things with you?

Me- hit the pool hard this week, swimming 90-100 lengths 3 times a week. Work's pretty stressful so it's really calmed me down as haven't been able to run since last week (sore Achilles from trying different shoes without orthotic!). Cycling feels fine too, but have to do it on stationary bike and I get BORED!!!!!! Rarely make it more than 30mins

TGIF Warriors!!!

Except that tomorrow is a shift day for me...........:scar ed:

Not much going on here. My "hip thing" cropped up again on my 1/2M on Sunday. Ugh. If anyone has any answers, don't keep it a secret!!

As such, no running this week. A few days at the gym and a couple of days of fat tire trail bike riding. Have been unable to do any bricks lately due to the back kicking my *** lately. It didn't bother me on Sunday, but it's bothering me NOW!!! Doing the Daytona Beach 1/2M in 9 days. Hopefully I'll get in a couple/3 days of running prior.

I've got a "training date" Monday morning to hit the pool (finally). Hopefully I'll be able to work on my stroke efficiency in the next few weeks. My stroke count is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too high right now. I need to shave 4-5 strokes off per 25m. If I can do that (and keep my stroke cadence the same), I'll be one hellaciously happy camper !!

Anywhoo, 'nuff about me. Hope ya'll are doing well.

Katie, your swimming is amazing! I dream of the day I do that many lengths (I'm assuming 25 meters??). Or maybe it's a nightmare............ And I agree 100% about exercise bikes. I refer to them as the "Spinning machines of boring death"........

Pam - Have fun at the Princess!! My LLB and I are doing the 5k, but alas, work schedules conspire to keep us (her) from doing the 1/2. Maybe next year......

Ya'll take care & stay safe!!

Jim- I'm always amazed by swimmers who seem to do far less strokes than me but as so much faster. I'm guessing its a strength thing? Hope your training goes well. Yep I'm in a 25metre pool, but I don't just do front crawl otherwise I'd never do that many. Always break it up with breaststroke. I feel really gutted for you guys that you can do 5k and not princess half

Any other princess trippers from Warriors that I can virtually stalk/cheer?

Me- good game of badminton with the hubby (trip to the zoo!) and a swim, nothing much of any excitement to report. I'm kind of surprised how long my Achilles has been cross for, thought it might have got over it by now!
