Goal:

Not look like the under-trained fool that I am come ILThon. No way am I catching 1k miles again this year. Main goal is to fall back in love with running long.

      Your call how you handle it, but I'll bet you could fairly easily raise the $1K. My fundraisers reached their goals by "selling songs" on my race day playlist and also auctioning off something of value (that's your contribution, is buying the item(s)). Either way, though, good luck with the training!

      Next time you see them, do it then. I met and ran with a guy who has lost 115lbs...who lives like 2 miles from me! So combined we've lost 122lbs! That was a fun chat!

  13. #dailymission If you do, what supplements do you take? If not, why?

    Scotch or beer. Just recently started taking a Flintstones-like chewable mostly for the flavor and because they're there.

      You can do things like table with a fist so your wrist doesn't have to bend. I don't think you're supposed to do down-dog that way, though. Yoga can be rough on the legs, depending on what you do...

      Yeah, good call. I've done the 'fist' variation - and that's how I HAVE to do push-ups - but I try to do it open-handed in hopes of stretching those tendons back out a little bit. The routine does table 3x. Often I'll do the first two open-handed and the last on my knuckles. Luckily down-dogs are fairly easy on my wrist, it's the shoulder that gets 'tired' and I have to be careful with. I think it'll be OK once I can get some strength back into it.

      Nice zero week run, Mark! You completed a marathon a month ago... I'd say you've got the base laid down. And, the cardio will come back quickly. In case you're not aware, there's a pretty large FitMKE contingency coming to Chicago this year. And we're bringing OUR weather... so get ready for it! This one's going to be AWESOME! :)

      Well, thanks Marty, but it was a month and a half now, and I walked the back half. ;) With the weight and everything else, I REALLY feel like I'm starting over. Yet I'm motivated to kick some ass. Just need to shift to going to bed earlier again. That's been my killer lately. And yeah, bring on the FitMKEers!!! My cousin will also be running it as her first full. Awesome.
