    Hello Deb and Ivy!!!!

    I thought that this year we started on Sundays since January 1st was a Sunday. I've been counting the week as Sunday through Saturday, but as long as you're getting the workouts in I guess it doesn't matter!! And you always get your workouts in so you can track your week however you want. :wink:

    I didn't get any workouts in last week--unless you count running around all weekend Christmas shopping!! :laugh: My foot is starting to feel better, and although I want so bad to hop on the treadmill and run I am going to wait until it is completely better. The pain seems to be migrating towards the back of my foot, near my heel now, so I'm hoping it will migrate right on out of my foot in the next week or so. I think that if I can get back to running by Christmas I will really have a shot at getting back in decent enough shape to run the half in January. I know that my speed won't be as good, but I really just want to have the experience. If not, no huge loss--there's a half in April for the Kentucky Derby that my sister is running, so I can always do that one instead.

    Hope you guys are having a great day!

    Thank you Heather and I sure hope your foot heals faster! You are always running here & there so I suppose that is going to delay you some!!! Hang in there, you'll always have a race coming up somewhere!!

    Debra, you just do what you can do, that's all there is to it!!!

    If we start on Sundays then I am 3/7 with a 10 mile bike ride at 4:30 this morning along with abs and reps! This evening I did 380 stair steps for another challenge!!!

    Hello!! Hope you are feeling good this evening. I am feeling a lot better these days. I stopped taking a medecine that was causing me to have a lot of pain and moving had become very difficult. I am now almost pain free and able to start training again. I just completed an 18 minutes walk on my treadmill, a little ab work and some shoulder movement. Feels good.

    The medecine I stopped taking is one for cholesterol control. My level is naturally at about 2 and I must keep it under 2. To do so, I decided to become a semi-vegetarian. The only meat that I will take from now on, is fish and turkey, nothing else. I am seeing my cardiologist on Wednesday and we will talk about it but one thing he will have to understand is that I will definitly not live in pain, no way.

    Take care :smooched: :smooched:

    By the way, happy end of the world and I'll speak to you on the 22 :wink: :tongue:

    Hey ladies!!! I am 1/7 for the week with a 3 mile run on the treadmill at 5:30 this morning. Woo hoo!!! The foot was a little "sore" but not really painful. May try to do another short treadmill run tomorrow depending on how it feels.

    Verda--you are AMAZING--4:30??? I dread getting out of bed to work out at 5:30, I really don't think that I could do 4:30. Sounds like you had a super crazy busy day!

    Debra, I know it is a busy time of year and I'm sure you'll get the workouts in as soon as you have time.

    I don't know about everyone else, but I have kind of mentally checked out of work! I have two more days until 9 days of freedom!!!! :bigsmile: :bigsmile: :bigsmile:
