I did 3 today and 4.1 yesterday for a total of 36.6 for the month. Not bad since I'm a month post op from my TT. So proud of all of you guys and gals for accomplishing the ultimate goal this month....which was just to push yourself. Let's keep it going in November. Thanks to everyone who participated. You are all helping to paint the picture that this change we all have made is about health, not just weight loss.

Weight loss is just a pleasant side effect.

I'm literally going to have to get home at 10:30 pm, take off my suit and and hose and heels, and get on my stationary bike. I'm 0.6 miles short of my stretch goal and by golly, I intend to make it!

Happy Halloween everyone! It turns out I got in 2 more miles, but here is the rub: carrying a 20 lb medicine ball.

First time I have done that and it got me thinking. With the medicine ball, my weight is 192. I ran at 220 and it was far easier then running with at 172 with a 20 lb medicine ball. It must have been a combination of in balance, torque and a little sheer force that caused it to be hard.

I carried the 20 lb medicine ball against my chest in a bear hug when trying to run fast. Each mile took about 7:30 seconds. My fast mile is usually around 5 minutes, sometimes faster.

I was huffing and puffing. Secretly praying for it to end. My body was taking a beating. Lol.

In context, here is today's run set:

1 mile with 20#

50 sit ups with 20#

40 thrusters with 20#

30 jumping lunges with 20#

20 box jumps (24") with 20# - so hard!!

1 mile run with 20#

Oh and if we dropped the ball, 5 burpees for every second it sit on the ground. Needless to say, no one dropped the ball before I did the workout today.

This whole week has been brutal. Maybe luck of the draw or a week on vacation has softened me a little. I think the former as I was still working out every day last week on vacation.

Ending October with 208 miles of running and rowing (mostly running).

Onward to the November challenge!!!!

Happy Halloween everyone! October is done...does that mean Christmas music starts tomorrow?

Soooo...3.70 miles today walked. That puts my final total for the October challenge at 131.70 miles! I beat Sept by a little over 4.5 miles. Not as many as I hoped but still happy with my total.

Great job everyone and thank you all for being so motivational for me. There were definitely days I didn't want to do anything but everyone here kept me going. Thank you all and see you next month (tomorrow).

Sigh. I read my pedometer for the wrong day and had the wrong number. .8 yesterday not 1.7 :( 57.3 total.

So 1.6 walking and 2 miles in bike puts me at 61 miles. 1mile over my stretch goal but only because I'm so dang tired that I couldn't add and did one more mile than I needed to :)

You can bet that if it hadn't been for the challenge, I would not have gotten on my bike at the end of a 17.5 hour work day so thank you for cheering and motivating me!
