John- great to hear the surgery went well.

Amanda - Sorry to hear about no Feb trip. But congratulation on buying into DVC. I've been an owner at OKW for 12 years this September.

AFM - I did a 20 mile bike ride yesterday, 100 is still a long ways off although I am thinking maybe 50km by the end of the summer. Then today I did 4 miles run/walk. I'm pretty beat this evening.

Happy Independence day to you all!

Jim what was the outcome from your follow up with doctor? I'm really hopeful that he/she had some pixie dust. It's possible, right?

John so so pleased to hear that surgery went well and I hope you're still feeling the benefit from it.

Amanda 16 miles sounds huge at the moment. How's the heat doing now where you are?

Jeremy I think after your cycling and running, being tired is OK 50km by the end of the summer would be a great achievement.

Me I've been awol again sorry! I have a good excuse I promise! I had a kidney stone.... So i can officially say that kidney stones are not my friends and they are not welcome! My doctor laughed and said that I must have the body of an old man It's meant that I haven't run for 2 weeks and 1 day! That's my longest run of no exercise at all for a really long time. Stone has been evicted and I've finally stopped being sick/passing out so hoping to be back out there soon. Meant to have a 10k next saturday... hmm.

On a really happy note.... i've just ordered my first ever sparkleskirt Obviously in WISH colours ready for November

Kate-Thanks from ALL!!! Glad the stone has passed. Now, as Willie Nelson sings, "On The Road Again"

AFM-early birthday bicycle ride today. Next Wednesday I'll be 63 so I went out and doubled my age + 2 for good measure.

Be safe and have fun training to all.

BTW- could have used a McFlurry or 2 today. Even rode past a McD's but I was on a mission.

Oh no Kate! Sorry about the kidney stone. I hope you're on the mend...

It's been HOT here. I overslept this morning (which was heavenly since I'm usually up at 5:30am) and ended up running in the afternoon. I stuck to the treadmill because it was SO hot and humid. At least I was out of the sun. This weekend is my first attempt at one mile repeats. Should be interesting in the 90F heat and humidity! Obviously I plan to wake up early. I only have to do 4 x 1 mile with 5 min walk in between. But I'm supposed to running at 10:50 pace which is quite speedy for me.

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY to all of the American Warriors!

Amanda

John- that's one crazy length bike ride! Do you not have a mcflurry holder on your handlebars? That would be perfect!

Amanda- seriously 90!!!! I can't imagine running in that, never mind doing repeats! Take care (lie ins are always wonderfully magical aren't they!)

Kate~ glad to hear you're on the mend! Good Luck getting back out there. Did you get a sparkle light or tech? I love my sparkle tech! (can't decided which to get next! LOL)

John~ Happy Birthday in advance! (DD#2 and Nephew birthdays on Monday) Wow what a distance for your ride!

Amanda~ good luck on those mile repeats! hot and humid isn't my friend either. Although yesterday I got out before there was too much heat just really humid. (my hanky gathered dampness hanging on the outside of my skirt before I even used it.)

As for me I'm working in getting back on a workout schedule. Our Xfit trainers have been running us ragged on Mondays which makes it hard for my old legs to get out and run on Tuesdays. Today our cardio is swimming- that I can handle!

Have a great weekend everyone!

I went for the spotty green one (lucky charm) sparkle tech. I've never had one, but am toying with the idea of running as tink in all my wish stuff. Have some green wings and green glow bangles too.... We'll see how hot it is in November. Might change my mind!

Your Xtraining sounds intense, but amazing. How lovely to have someone to mix up your training a bit.

I'm a huge fan of my sparkle tech skirts!!!

I did my mile repeats starting at 5:30am. It went pretty well although I did them faster than I was supposed to. No injuries so I suppose no harm done.

Amanda

Happy July 8th Warriors!! I was terribly neglectful not wishing you all a Happy Independence Day, or as my British wife's side of the family would say "Happy Getting Rid of You Bloody Colonists Day!!!


!Been terribly absent for a while...... My lovely luscious Bride and I just returned from a 10 day "staycation" at our soon (but not soon enough) to be retirement chateau in Celebration. Had some nephews and wives/girlfriends visit for a few days. Did NOT go to any Theme Parks (thankfully..........heat, tourists, crowds, rain......did I mention heat, rain, tourists...... And crowds??), but we DID go to the Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit that just opened at Kennedy Space Center. Very. Nicely. Done. I highly recommend it. Being the rocket nerd that I am, and having grown up in the area, it actually brought a bit of a tear to my eyes.

Not much going on here. Been running some. It is VERY hot and pretty humid down here. Ran twice in Celebration, then the company arrived and that was that. 6 miles today.

Ya'll are all doing great! Keep up the awesome work. If ya' can do it in the summer, you can do it anytime!!!

Oh, btw, As the Dr. put it, I've pretty much "come to the end of the road" as far as my back is concerned. The steroid shot did zippo for me ( but the Lidocaine with it gave me a pretty numb a** for a couple of hours ;-) ), so next week I am having surgery to get some extra hardware installed in my lumbar spine. It's a good news/bad news thing......... Bad news: I'm getting surgery! With all the inherent risks, yada, yada, anesthetic, etc., intubation, REALLY sharp knives, etc............ Good news: it's reasonably not super duper major and I should only have about a 6 week recovery, depending on how cooperative and patient of a patient I am. Hopefully I will be able to go home that evening. If I'm first in line (which I have requested), and I'm an awesomely awesome patient I may get to go home that evening. Next morning at the latest. This bodes well for not missing the ToT or the W&D in the fall. :-D.

Buuuuuuuut enough about me. Ya'll keep at it.

Oh Jim so sorry that you have to have surgery, but lets hope this does the trick! You are a tough warrior and can get through this and bounce like tigger out of the other side Let us know what day you go in so we can throw some positive thoughts your way. Glad you got to the space centre and enjoyed it so much.

Amanda for 5:30am repeats! You are amazing.

Me I was going to whine, but ater seeing what Jim's going through I'm going to shut up! I have been out, for 1.5 miles each time and with it being slow my IT Band flares up.... but I have been out. Trying to build energy up after losing weight (and muscle booooo). Will get there
We had a 10k for sunday, hubby will still run and I will cheer enthusiastically now

I'm so sorry you need surgery Jim. Sending positive thoughts and prayers for you!

Kate - I get up at 5:30am every day for work so don't be quite so impressed! Hope the IT band feels better.

Amanda

Good Morning Warriors,

Jim~ good luck with the surgery, I'm hoping everything goes as planned and your back at it asap
DrMom~ I'm an early riser but have a real problem getting out to run much before 7am at home, when I'm in Fl at my Dad's I try to get out before 6 and only make it a couple of times a week. Thankfully it cooled off here yesterday
Kate~ take care, I'm hoping your workouts get better and better

As for me, it's boot camp week at XFit class so they have really been kicking out behinds! I ran this morning and plan to get another run in tomorrow after dropping DH at the Airport for a 6:20 flight. Then it's back to Florida, cause Dad is having some issues.

Have a great run (or ride) everyone!

Oooooh it's been a while!

Jim- how are you? Have you had surgery yet? If so I really hope you're doing ok!

Amanda- 5.30AM every day! GASP! I struggled with the odd 6am start in the past! You are amazing!

Pam- hope your dad's doing ok and boot camp week was brilliant! You know it's been good if no matter how hard you try, you simply can't walk!

Jeremy how's your biking mission going? Closer to that 50km goal?

John- what obscene workouts have you been clocking up lately he he!

Me- taking it slowly but managed 3 miles this morning. Really need to get going with the W&D training plan but I know not to push it just yet. Our weather over here has been lovely (think our prime minister stole it from somewhere else!). Perfect for welcoming our new little prince/ future king! Disclaimer: I quite like the royal family! Think they're cute and they mostly bring nice things for our country!

Keep strong and warrior on!

Hi ALL , been a while.....

Jim-sorry about the situation, hope things are a bit better. Decided not to do IM 70.3 FL next year but will do Gator 70.3 on same day. Figure once done for Haines City, that's enough. Will be waiting for it to return to WDW, if ever.

Amanda-good job, when you're used to 0530 it's not a biggie, is it? Up here at 0350 the latest every day so when Marathon Weekend comes around I have no problem at all.

Pam-just hoping things are better for you also. You just loved BC, right???

Kate-, good to take it slow and avoid a mishap. You'll be fine for W&D -weather, Royals and Tour de France winner.

Jeremy-bet you're knocking out the miles.

AFM-physical recovery is good but still not much of a voice back. Dr. said 2 to 3 months but I also read that could be 1 year. 118 mile memorial ride yesterday for a bicycling friend who was killed a year ago. Walked 5K with Kathy this AM and had a Police copter circling overhead the entire time with streets blocked off by Police cars. Something was up. Got to the County Pool for 2000 yards swimming. Knees are feeling better so the serious speed walking/jogging will begin this week for IMFL. A little more than 3 months away.

Stay healthy and safe.
