Where you been?

Around, I’ve been around… and doing pretty well thank you.

Hit a little snag with my running though, been suffering through some back issues. Still been able to walk no problem, but running, even short distances, has been a bit of a problem.  Hoping it rectifies itself soon.  I am doing this race even if I have to crawl it lol.  The back issue isn’t major, it’s just a nerve bundle thing happening under my left shoulder blade.  I used to get them a lot.

My eating is slipping.  Not badly, but enough, eating more than I should and allowing more stuff like icecream etc. to sneak it’s way in.  So far it hasn’t resulted in bad news, but it could, so I am trying very very hard to reign that back in.

One more week and we are all off on a family vacation.  Likely won’t get a chance for a big blog on that, but we’ll try…

Here’s some pictures from the last week, to show were I have been and what I have been doing.


Mmmm mmmmm losters

Also, got this AWESOME badge on Loseit today!


Juneathon 10

Had us an amazing fast moving thunder storm here this evening and the 8k run I had after was really friggin’ good…

Time was sucky, about 33 minutes on the 5k, was really wanting to get under 30 again this evening.  The bit of a bad back I had was holding me back a little, of course, the fact that I was running after supper AGAIN was another factor.  I’ll never ever learn…lol…

Was a great picture taking kind of evening though!

And my wife is a big fan of lupins.  Later in the year, the trail I travel will be blanketed with them, but for now, there was but this wee little fella…

Big distance tomorrow, we’ll see how it goes!



Juneathon and something else

So today was a distance day for the Juneathon, plus my Tely training.

Did a pretty easy 5k, under 35 minutes, easy pace and followed that up with a nice 9k consisting of fast walks and some 1/2k sprints.

Weather was amazing, warm and a nice breeze to keep the flies at bay.

It’s amazing to me that I do 14k now and it’s not even enough to wear me down.  I did that, came home, mowed the lawn, got my bike all oiled and the tired pumped in anticipation of a possible ride later this evening.


Oh, some other pretty good news.

I today weigh 204.5 lbs, just 4.5lbs to go to red me of that pesky 2 and the first digit in my 3 digit weight.  That’s nice too…

That’s about it, all is well, things are progressing and I’m satisfied with the progress…

What more is there?
