Hello gang!

Here we are week 6- and heading into the start of the Spring into Action Challenge.

I am waiting on weights from 2 people (Narnia99 & indigurl)- sorry to call you out- but I'm hoping to announce teams ASAP.

We will continue with the mixed threads until Saturday or Sunday where we will split into our individual team chat, exercise & nutrition threads.

Any questions- please let me know.

Have a great on-plan day all!

Mel

It will be nice to be back into the routine. I've been off my game a bit this summer, had a little trouble with one of my artificial knees that spooked me. For a while we thought I would need to have it replaced again but it looks like it is just some scar tissue built up. After having some bone scans it was determined that it looks good and healthy and secure. So I’m back to my walking and climbing stairs for exercise.

There really is a lot of work put into one of these challenges and it really is appreciated. Thank you, Mel, BigMid and LeslieB.

No running for me for 2-3 weeks. I could be a lot worse, but I'm still bummed about a forced break. Basically my fibula is "locked" into place on my tibia, so I'm not getting the full range of motion, which causes the ankle pain. Hopefully a few weeks off from running and some PT will get the joint to open back up.

Bummer, Nikel.
I tried to run today, too, and my body said NO. My left hip flexor and right hamstrings just did not want to play today. I got a decent walk in, but I really wanted to run. I'm super busy tomorrow - I'll be lucky if I can squeeze in 20 minutes of yoga. I'll leave the house at 820am, and won't get home til almost 10pm.

Oh well, time for bed. Long day tomorrow.

Let's have a great week, everyone!

Nikel- what happened? Was this from the half in the rain or something more recent. Can you continue to swim or is a break from all activity? Sounds nasty either way. Hope the PT helps.

Riddy- it's tough when your mind says one thing and your body says another. IT's so hard to get them to cooperate!

E- glad your knee is doing well. What option did they give you with the scar tissue- do you get it removed?

Did a run after dd soccer game tonight- body said yes- mind was saying no.

I'm heading to bed, but had to watch Chris Hadfield's return from space.

See you tomorrow gang!

Yes, much thanks Mel for keeping this ball rolling, and to LeslieB and BigMid for supporting us all through this challenge. Good to see you too Dumplin - looks like Onderland is exactly the same distance away for us - here's to crossing over - better yet - during the Spring Challenge!!! Another 2 lbs down, at 215 to start, the lowest I've been in years. So glad to be here with you all

She said it's probably just from all the impact my body has taken lately. 3 half marathons in 9 weeks is a lot of miles. I'm still allowed to swim. She also suggested yoga. I'm registered for a 10K in 12 days. I probably won't decide what to do until the last minute. If my ankle feels better, I'll do it and take it easy. If my ankle isn't feeling better, I'll go pick up the shirt and cheer on my friends.

Riddy, So sorry to hear about your hip but listen to your body, better to let it dictate what it needs instead of pushing through and causing issues.

Mel, I'm in a wait and see mode right now. I moved from AZ to TX shortly after the replacements so the Dr. I'm seeing isn't the same surgeon that replaced them. So my first move was to get myself established with a local Orthopedic Surgeon. He said he will be happy to work with me and the next time it happens to come in and he will give me a shot for the pain. Of course he isn’t listening to me saying that it won’t allow me to walk when it slips because right now I’m walking just fine. I will just have to wait until the next time and head directly to his office so he can see for himself when I can’t straighten out my knee that a shot isn’t going to realign everything but the first step was to establish myself with a local Dr. Meanwhile, I’m moving just fine and walking and hiking up and down the stairs … with a death grip on the rail but I’m not going to let it stop me.

Morning everyone well were heading into the May long weekend here and it's supposed to be rainy. So I'm sitting out in the sun right now soaking up a little warmth before heading to work.....which is in less than an hour so should get my butt in gear. This is just so nice listening to the birds drinking my morning coffee. So nice......then reality hits:-)

Looking forward to the new challenge and getting to know all our new members and catching up with the regulars.

Have a great day everyone.
