good news! I am too wobbly to exercise today, but my colonoscopy came out perfect! no polys, nothing biopsied etc! YAY!

I also lost 4 pounds in between not eating solids yesterday and not eating fruits/veggies for the 5 days before! Maybe I can translate this into my weight loss boost I needed!LOL Thanks for all of your positive thoughts, I needed them when I was on the cart waiting to go to the procedure..

Pushed mowed for 2 hours today. Talk about a sweaty, hot mess. Also, wasps decided to take up residency in our yard while we were at the beach last week. They're the kind that nest in the ground. I got stung once and dh got stung once. It hurts!

Edj3- that's a very good training schedule for the 10K . When I started retraining for the 10K last year I used a very similar online program that Runner mom recommended. My Runners Club training starts July 13th for a half marathon in October. I'm going to have to take a pass on it because it's too hot but the next training starts in October and I'll be ready.

Wonderland- The heat is getting to me. I'm still amazed you can use a push mower in the summertime..

Thank you :) This race is really important to me, I fractured my pelvis at the end of May 2018 from overtraining and osteopenia. Just as I was getting my mileage back up this spring, I got the cancer dx (three months ago today, weird). So yeah, I'm running this race as a big F U to both of those things.

My glasses were DOA when I brought them in yesterday. Since the frames were two years old, I needed an eye exam anyway, and my optometrist had a cancellation....that's where I spent my morning. This afternoon I lived dangerously and walked the grandpuppies. Since then I have been organizing & packing because tomorrow I fly off for the annual get-together with the ladies of my family. Nobody but me has seen my sister's new house (near Charlotte, NC), so we will gather there and head for a couple days at the ocean (which, I believe, is the only bearable place to be in the south during the summer). Wonderland lives close to my sister, so she is coming over to hang out on Monday!!! We fly back out Tuesday. Expect some fun beach pictures!!

DS got her a new more restrictive harness, is training her more seriously, plus I will be paying attention ALL the time now, plus she will eventually outgrow puppyhood......we have never had a BIG dog in the family before, so it's a learning curve for all.

I have been doing yard work boot camp as well. Sunday I mowed the front yard 37 minutes and then weeded 45. Then I walked the dog around the neighborhood. Monday I mowed the back yard, trimmed the hedge with the manual hedge clippers (good upper body workout) and then went to the lake and walked around the lake. I was so glad to get all that done while it was not raining nor 93 feels like 98, like it had been. Instead it was back to upper 70s. Today I rested but I did take the dog for a short walk. He sleepsbetter when I do.

Hi all: I took a long weekend off the internet to go camping (we had a blast, but I didn't get in as much hiking and exercise as I would have liked given that it rained, rained and rained some more!)...

So I get back, work explodes, and finally tonight I get a chance to read the boards...and so much has happened! I am glad you are feeling better Ruth (and had that ice cream); 2Fun glad all went well, and I hope everyone is doing well!

Hi Everyone!

2Fun- glad to hear the all clear for you.

Busy week here for me as I am teaching a week long class at the university for classroom teachers called Yoga Writing and Mindfulness. It’s going well but tiring, so yesterday I had extra caffeine and this morning woke early thanks to the extra hot flashes. Still no running for me, but resting seems to have alleviated much of the footpain.

Here’s a pic my colleague took beach tan still on:
