That's my stretching class and a very short walk to meet my walking buddies for 10 min. It's really hard for all of us to get caught up in that time, especially when we're huffing and puffing and yacking!

So, Rose and anybody else who remembers, I had plantar fasciitis that I was trying to clear up on my own. Didn't work and in one foot I got this incredible pain on the top of my foot. Saw a doc and a podiatrist. Got cortisone shot ( wonderful things!). One foot is all cleared up and the other just got a second shot. Doc told me to wait a bit before I invest in orthotics. I have a girlfriend who got some from an athletic shoe store; I think I'll ask her for more details!

Walking at the park; saw a bobcat hanging out in the wooded area and again at the creek. I like knowing that wild things can still survive in the 'burbs, that we haven't chased them all away.

That is very cool! We went to Belize a couple of years ago over Thanksgiving, and my husband went for a run around the resort. He came back (a bit early ) and was describing a HUGE pawprint he saw to one of the staff there. The staff member informed him that it was a jaguar!! Cool but a little scary.

Yay!!! We got a great price on Aladdin tickets for Easter day, so that's what prompted the trip. We're also seeing a couple more shows while we're there and spending some time at the 9/11 museum. What about you? What fun agenda do you have?

Join with me in sending out good weather vibes!!

Disney World is my "home" resort, but we traveled to Disneyland last summer. I was surprised at how much I loved it (I had a good and usually reliable friend tell me it was nothing special). Now we are slating summer 2015 for a return visit.

Updating through post #42. If you don't see your name, please repost and I will add you in.

We have a bunch of new folks. Very exciting!

And I think we have several returning folks who haven't checked in yet, so we could end up with a big group this month.

My goal is 900 for the month of April.

I also ran this morning, so:

40/900.

Hope I am doing that right!

Thanks for this awesome thread!
Perfect! Welcome!

Oh, I have dealt with p-f. Boo! Did you do physical therapy? I had a great therapist, though it was very painful. I wore semi-custom orthotics for over a year. The worst for me was no heals! I can wear heals again, but try to limit it to a couple days a week. I never got the shots. My foot was such a mess when I went to physical therapy (p-f, achilles tendonitis and a fat pad injury) that I just needed to rest it for a couple months. Almost forgot--I wore a strasburg (sp??) sock for a while at night too. That was lots of fun. Not. Though I do think it really helped the p-f.

Happy to say I am p-f free at the moment.

I do have some nasty lumps on the back of my achilles tendons that I probably need to deal with. I am running in 0 drop shoes, which has helped with all of my other issues including p-f, back and itbs problems, but I am now dealing with tight achilles tendons. Mike wants me to go to physical therapy, but I am trying stretching, icing, etc at home first.

I am really afraid they are going to make me rest again.

Very cool!

We saw a deer last weekend in the back of our neighborhood.

In SC this weekend we saw an actual Blue Bird. Not a blue jay, but a blue bird. It was absolutely beautiful and I think the first one I saw out in nature.

Maybe increase the water a little bit? I do not lose if I am working out a lot and not drinking water. Glad you are seeing progress on the inches!

I want to join in, too. I have less than 4 weeks left until my vacation and I still have about 5 lbs to lose.

My monthly goal is 600 minutes of running this month.

Thanks!

Ran 40 straight minutes at a good, steady pace! I'm so pleased. Also did some extra cardio and strength exercises for a total of 75 minutes today.
