Salt seems to be the discussion- for my shirt and for Johns lack of iodine. I never thought about the low/no salt diets also being iodine short but it makes sense. (also makes me glad I don't have to worry about salt now.)

John I hope the iodine in water works for you.

AFM today's run will be a local 5K (5K is the Nun Run and 10 K is the Brother Boogie- races start at an old Monastary an wind through some fields and woods to a Nunnery and support the local Catholic school.) I'm not sure I'll love the course- last time I ran it (the first year they had it) the course was mowed thorough some really tall grass- but not mowed short enough to "see" where you were stepping- a lot of knee problems and turned ankles were at the finish line. They have a really cute T-shirt so I'm giving it another go! I'm not sure what that says about me- that I'll run a race just for the cute t-shirt! LOL

No wine, but they did have chocolate milk. It was my first attempt at drinking milk after a run and was great. Not sure if I could do it after a half, but a 5K was no problem. (I really worry about heat and milk in my stomach not getting along LOL)

oh my goodness John! What a scare and why is it that everytime we try to follow one lot of health advice, it seems to impact something else?!?! I'm so pleased you're feeling better, what brilliant luck that your friend/Dr stepped in with some advice. I hope you just keep feeling the improvement and the surgery ends up being minor.

Iodine is all over the news here too at the moment with a study that's found 2/3 of people are deficient and apparently it's affecting our IQ!

pam yay for getting the cute tee-shirt! Hey everyone runs for something (it's usually a new hoodie for me!). Chocolate milk is the best post run drink EVER!!!! I bring loads of Hershey's syrup home from holidays so I can keep drinking it here... sad i know! Did you enjoy the race?

John - Thanks for the suggestions on the bike. Toe Clips or Clipless pedals will probably be a down the road upgrade. Although I admit Clipless seems pretty scary for someone my size. I'm going to hold off on going in for any adjustments until I get a fell for what feels right. The next purchase is probably going to be at least 1 water bottle cage. Also, Glad to hear the Iodine is working. Hopefully it continues to work so you don't need surgery.

Jim - Hope things are getting back to normal for you.

Pam - Sounds like a fun race.
AFM - Friday went out for a 12 mile bike ride. Probably started out a little bit too fast. I slowed up on the return trip. But still averaged 11.5mpg while active. I have auto pause set on my Garmin and took a short break half way through. My seat and hands are still getting used to riding. On Saturday walked/ran 3 miles, My first run since I got the new bike. Sunday, I rode my bike to church and back. It's about 1.5 miles each way. My pastor also rides a bike at times and recommended I park the bike in the church. The ride too church is slightly uphill, so I think I'll need to adjust my riding style slightly. I didn't notice it on my ride but when I stopped I because a little warm and sweaty. I haven't decided what I'm going to do this afternoon.

I wouldn't call it fun lots of longish grass areas that aren't good for my old legs, and the fact I gave blood the day before kinda took the bloom off the funness! I may do it again though time will tell.

Pam - So it may sound better than it is. When I used to give blood, I would make sure it was at least a couple of weeks before a big event.

This weeks been pretty good so far. I biked to church Sunday and Wednesday and Ran Today and Monday. I'm planning on getting a longer bike ride in tomorrow.

Checking in from Sunny Florida (finally, the first week I was here we only saw about 5 minutes of sun). I ran a suprise half marathon June 1st. I hadn't planned on running but my daughter and SIL came in to do a half marathon in South Bend IN, and she had a knee injury, since her Dr. told her not to run- I filled in for her. (DSIL did the full marathon) Both races ended in Notre Dame football stadium which was kind of cool. Unfortunately DD came in last in her age group. LOL

As for me what's next? a couple of fun 5K's (color and lights involved), and then getting down to some serious Glass Slipper training when school starts again.

Pam you are amazing! How you can do a surprise half, is brilliant!!! I'm pretty sure DD won't mind at all, she'll be massively proud of you Fun 5ks sound like a wonderful idea before intense training begins

Jeremy how are you settling into your bike? Isn't exercising to get somewhere so rewarding!?!?! Brilliant.

Warriors hope you're all doing OK

Me getting in the runs and loving speed work at the moment... feel like I'm cheating doing it on the treadmill though. Must find a track soon, but it's the only way I really know that I'm keeping pace! We have a 10k in a few weeks and I'm gutted to see that the first Color Run in the UK is in Manchester too a week later.... it just seems a bit much to race on two weekends! (creeping out to check whether this is doable )

Oh my gosh John! I'm so sorry you need surgery. My youngest child is graduating preschool on the day of your surgery so we'll send happy thoughts for you.

Hi all

Pam - How neat to run on Notre Dame field. That seems to be the latest thing. When I did Disneyland, we ran through Angel Field. The Indy half runs a lap around the speedway, etc.

Kate - Glad to hear you're enjoying your speed work. If you can't find a track, you could mark off distances yourself. The trail I run on has one section where someone has marked of 40yd, 100m, 200m, and 400m. There are also posts every 1/2 mile. I've used that section for speed work before. With warmup and cooldown being getting to the area (it's between the 1.5 and 2 mi. marks on the trail) I've also marked off approximate distances on a quiet road using something like Map My Run to get distances between 2 landmarks.

Amanda - Congratulation on your child's preschool graduation.

Me - Things are going fairly well. I bikes Wednesday and Saturday and ran Monday and Friday. After 2 back to back days, I'm noticing it a little bit today. It just sort of came on when I got to church.

Happy Sunday Kids!!

It's been a while, not much positive to report down here......

Been doing as much working out as my incredibly busy schedule allows. A couple of times a week at best right now.

Had a lovely experience getting a steroid shot in my lower back last week.... to absolutely no avail (as I anticipated). I have a follow up this week where a further course of treatment will be determined. Unless the Dr. has some magic pixie dust up his sleeve it looks like surgery is a definite probability. Ugh. IF it has to be done, I want to get it over and done with asap. Sooner it's done, sooner it's over with.

BUT, until then, I'm still abusing my body as much as possible.....

Ya'll have a GREAT week!!

Jim-I was hoping you had some good news, saddened it wasn't. Good luck.

Jeremy-when is the 100 miler on the bike?

Thanks All for good thoughts.

Three day post surgery and what a difference!!!!!

As I mentioned, the iodine pre surgery did seem to help and I will continue with it.

The parathyroid tumor, right side, in my Dr's. words was "huge". It is gone, benign and I started to feel better Friday night.

Only a section of left lobe had to be removed because of blocking off passageway. I can breathe better!

It is absolutely crazy how I have better movement and less pain in my right shoulder now. I have less pain and more strength in my entire body. Unbelievable is all I can say.

I questioned my Dr. after surgery, I was his first patient at 7:15AM, and with his OK I got out Saturday morning for a 26 mile bike ride. Sunday I was out at 0336 for a 5K walk then a 11 mile bike ride in afternoon. Got caught in a downpour 1.5 miles from home. The rain came down so heavy I had to jump in the pool to dry off. This morning I did a 16 mile bike ride. Kathy asked Dr. today when he called to check-in on me, about me swimming, but he said no-go for 2 more weeks. Hoping be able to do the local Sprint Tri 7-13.

Stay well all.

Jeremy - Sounds like you're enjoying the new bike!!!
Jim - Sorry your back is bothering you so much.
John - What wonderful news that you're feeling great! Glad the surgery went well!!!

Here's my update: Training for NYC is going well. I'm up to 16 miles on my long run. The heat is bothering me a bit but I'm learning to slow down and increase my walk breaks. Fundraising is harder than I thought but I'm 20% to my goal and I have to just keep sending out emails.
No Glass Slipper Challenge for me since we just bought DVC (at the Grand Floridian) and the agreement was no February trip. My only upcoming Disney races are the 10k and full marathon in January.

Amanda-great job with the distance. Exactly correct dealing with the heat by slowing a bit and lengthening the walk. Enjoy your DVC. Kathy and I went in back in '97, enjoyed many years but got back into RVing with the motorhome so we sold.
