Golly-gee-willikers! I can't even imagine going through all that snow, you guys!

That's pretty dang funny about the mileage, though!

Okay...where the heck IS everyone?!?!? Come out and play, guys!

Yesterday I went 27 miles on my bike. It was a little chilly starting out, but I had my bike tights, Under Armor shirt/gloves/balaclava and century jacket to keep me warm. The wind was against me both ways! I don't even know how that's possible! It's like the old story of our grandparents having to walk barefoot to school every day uphill both ways! LOL Going out wasn't too bad, but coming back was brutal and I thought my legs were gonna blow up!

Oh, and it is KILLING me to not be able to go to the gym! I went on Monday to do legs, but I can't do anything else until this tricep heals. I feel like a junkie who needs a fix! LOL It's a good thing I've got my bike to take this out on! I may head out on her again today for a short run...haven't decided yet. The legs are pretty tight right now and I may need to take a day off.

But taking a day off is no fun! :smile:

You are so good at pumping up my ego...don't know if that's good or bad, but I love it, either way! :D

And I DID take the day off and did absolutely nothing but putter around the house.

Oh and one other thing I did was download over eleven hours of music onto my IPOD without hearing the same song twice, so that should get me through ANY training ride! I threw Santana, ELO, Steve Miller, Steely Dan, Stevie Ray Vaughn (LOVE HIM!), Alman Brothers, CCR, the Eagles, the Doobie Brothers, A Fine Frenzy, Fleetwood Mac, The James Gang, Korn, Metallica, Phil Collins, Genesis, REO Speedwagon, Styx, and the list goes on...all the good stuff is on there.

I did some research and pulled a map off the internet for Trinity Trails. It's supposed to be a gorgeous paved trail system along the Trinity River that winds through most of the park system in town and a good chunk of the county, it looks like. There is supposed to be new landscaping, even at all the bridges, under bridge art, other public outdoor art, and all sorts of improvements. I've never been, so if it's not too cold, I'm taking the bike down there tomorrow. Looks like I can get in a minimum of 65 miles with no repeat. I won't be able to go that far, but it's nice to know it's there to work up to! Oh boy! :tt2: Several large chunks of the trail system is also equestrian trail, so maybe I'll see a few horses along the way!

Been fighting it the last couple of days. Tuesday afternoon I found out that I have to have surgery for varicose veins in both legs. I went in for a problem I thought had to do with my right shin last week and got sent to a vascular surgeon and ultrasound for that area.

On the ultrasound, they found valves in my lower right leg that were "incomplete" and not working properly. Those veins have to be removed. Then, when I was with the surgeon, he noticed bulging veins on both legs that I, naively, thought were normal. He immediately had them do another ultrasound on my left leg and that one was even worse. Upper leg has a vein that is 4x's the normal size and lower leg has "incomplete" veins as well.

I still have to check with insurance as to what they need from surgeon before we can schedule, but it will be soon. I'll be out of work and working out for 1-2 wks. That is just alot to take right now.

So, I've been fighting it the last couple of mornings to get up and hit the cardio, but I've done it.

Yesterday: 60 minutes interval training on elliptical machine (thanks Stef, forgot how good that is)

Today: 65 minutes on treadmill, including 1.5 mile run @ 6.1 mph. I'm trying to work my way up to 5 miles at a time as I am about to get back on the SWAT team at work (hopefully) and will be sent to SWAT school where I will have to do it then. May as well get ready for it now.

Ceradad, sorry about your vein problems. I've known a few people that have had similar procedures. Your tough it will be all right, just a bump in the round and then you'll be even tougher! Good luck, keep us informed.

Almost two years ago, our house was robbed. My then 26 year son pulled up in his car and saw 2 guys coming out of our house carrying bags and he chased one of the guys down and the other guy shot at him! My son was not injured, thank God! We had several guns stolen, all my jewelry, silver coins, etc. Anyway, it was about $50,000 worth! Yesterday the trial started. We watched them choose the jury and them we all had to wait outside while they grilled my son for almost 2 hours! We all had to wait outside because we are all witnesses and they won't let you hear what anyone else says. It's a very frustrating process. Long story short, no exercise for me today. I have to testify! Wish us luck, I hope these guys are punished. They need to learn it's not okay to shoot at people! I'm a little scared, but it will be okay.

Ceradad - I'm so sorry about your legs, but it sounds like you are going to be well taken care of. Please keep us posted. You are in my prayers for a top notch recovery! SWAT team?!?!? Your a cop? How cool! You must be one tough cookie! :cursing:

Karey - How scary! And isn't is a mixed bag of emotions about your son...your proud for his bravery and yet you want to knock him in the head for being so dumb as to chase a criminal over worldly possessions! I hope they are punished to the max allowed. You are in my prayers, also. I hope this doesn't drag out too long for you...two years getting here is more than enough for anyone to bear!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
