Anyone else signed up for a Turkey trot? We will be in Erie, PA visiting family so I signed up for a 10k on Thanksgiving morning, I'll be running with my nephew before he ships off to Afghanistan while his fiance, and my wife run the 5k. I'll be at -1000 calories before sitting down for dinner.< /p>

Bought a pair of compression running pants for cold weather, they arrived yesterday, will give them a try tonight.

CW-X Conditioning Wear

Supposedly they reduce muscle effort by 26%. Sounds like a lot. I wouldn't have been caught dead wearing something like this a year ago.

Hi BillOH,

Please let me know how they work out for you...I'm checking out their website as I type this and they've got some really good stuff - including a support bra for those of us who were *ahem* genetically blessed.

Gotta tell ya - that's rare!

Their running pants look good, and if they help me run farther / faster, that will be even better! :confused:

Still getting in a few days a week - but nothing the last few days because of a deep cough. It's nearly gone, so I should be back on the road this weekend. Yay! I miss running - I've still been walking, but it's definatley NOT the same!:scared2:

I have some really good reviews on runnersworld.com about their sport bras. I don't wear them obviously, just a fan of watching them.

I love my compression running tights. I have 3 pairs, I bought them because there was no way I was going to run in the garage on the treadmill in the cold...they keep you real warm. Love them

You are just too funny :)

I'll be sure to post my review here so the other running babes can see it. I like that we share resources in addition to inspiration on this thread.

I know I would not be as successful with my running without the encouragement and inspiration I read here...everyone have a wonderful weekend!

Supposed to be sunny and near 60 here in CT - I'm definately going for a run! :bored:

Tomorrow will be the test of the pants. I'm running a Beat Michigan (again) 5K before the game. I'll see if it feels any easier than before. Somewhere I have a picture of a woman running in one of those Sports bras during the Columbus Marathon where it was 31 degrees. (I ran in warm ups the whole way) I've always been a warm weather runner, but I find I get cold a lot easier now.

Hi BillOH,

Loved them. Its hard to imagine, but it really does lessen the effort by your leg muscles. I try to start off 5 and 10ks at a 8 minute pace, I usually end up starting my first mile in 7:40 or so. I did the first mile today in 6:56. Legs felt great today, the cold air was tough. The pants are definitely warm though.

The Turkey trot was a great time today. Ran 49:13 for a 10k today, a new personal record! I broke my age (50) some say running your age is like shooting less than your age in golf.

Running the Jingle Bells 5k to benefit arthritis tomorrow. Its supposed to be around 25 degrees! 5000 people are expecting and it goes right through the heart of downtown. I love running the downtown streets. I'm glad I bought those CW-X pants. They are warm.

FYI, I signed up for 1/2 marathon #2 today, and I am committing myself to run the full marathon in October of 2010. I am probably going to start a blog about it. I've avoided blogs till now, not thinking anyone really would care about anything I wrote, but I figured I would right it anyway for myself as I know a lot of people have running a marathon on their bucket list.

      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.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
