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!

 

 

56 days and counting

It’s just 56 days till the Tely 10…

I think the blog’s new name has been decided as well, for when I am no longer on the road to the Tely 10.  Not telling you though…

Nope…

Naha…

😉

Juneathon is going to be a big help in motivating me as well.  There’s much to be said about accountability to your friends, and I find even more to be said about accountability to strangers… funny thing that…

I actually went for a very nice 5-6k stroll this evening that I likely wouldn’t have gone on if it weren’t for the Juneathon challenge. The part about moving every day.  You see, I was up this morning at the AWFUL hour of 4:45am and was at work, driving a forklift, at 5:30am.  I drove, lifted, walked, ran, swept, piled, stacked and stocked for over 9 hours without much of a break at all.  I was, frankly, pretty effing wiped by the time I got home.  I got up after supper though and took the walk…. glad I did…. look at this view…

Beauty night!

And also, speaking of supper….

Fresh corn, grilled sweet potato, asparagus and a 4-5 oz serving of sirloin…

Supper goodness….

That’s about it for now, up again at 4:45 tomorrow…. shoot me…

Shoot me now….

Geo Caching

Did my first geo-cache trip today, and I gotta say, I liked it!

Not so much my first stop, couldn’t find the cache, was kind of frustrating for me but when I finally found the second one I was looking for, well now, that’s a good feeling.

Another good feeling, I did a 2k uphill sprint to the top of the hill that offers THIS view…

I felt around the same at the end of the run as I did at the end of a walk I did last year on the same trail.

Here are a few more pics, including a pic of my first cache with its guts spilled on ground lol…

Going to go hunt again a little later… 😉

 

 

GREAT holiday weekend….. BUT…

SNOW!  To the tune of 60+ centimeters… that’s 2 feet for my American readers…

Some spring here in Newfoundland….

Here’s a couple of pictures for you who doubt my truthfulness!

I didn’t take these, but they were the best I could find on Facebook lol…

Just madness…. pure madness…

I ate like a pig as well, luckily, I did still get over 25k of walking/running in and am happy to report that I weighed just a 1/2 pound more on my return than I did on my departure…

That’ll be gone soon as well I am sure

🙂

That’s all for now folks, spect a longer blog soon!
