  1. Hey scouts. I'm going to try and get involved here more. My life has settled back to a routine (got a PhD, moved and started a new job). I'm now traveling 2x a month for work, which is fun but I need some accountability for food when I do. Also I signed up for a race series this summer and want to get faster. So I'm going to start checking on others challenges and get in on the next round.
  2. Just stopping in to say I'm alive. Found out I have Celiac, gluten intolerance, which was causing some other problems. So I'm starting an autoimmune whole 30 on monday. Hopefully my energy will increase and I'll be more motivated to stop in here again. I still plan on running Dopey in January but triathlon training has been pushed back by a year. Hoping to be ready for the next challenge, I could use the running accountablity as the milage ramps up.
  3. Alright, I ran a marathon. I finished. Not entirely happy with the results as my allergies decided they did not like the fall leaves on top of the crushed limestone path we had to run on for miles 12-16 and I need multiple stops to blow my nose and was really struggling to breath for the last 3 miles, which should have been easy miles with a nice down slope and crowd support. However I finished and I know my legs are capable of running faster/longer. I will now always carry benedril with me on long runs. Halloween 5k is next week pics to come. This week has been fueled by caffine as I have had
  4. The wings are attached to my sports bra so any clothing option needs to be cut or backless, which is why I'm making arm warmers. Those are almost done just need elastic for the top. I will take a couple more photos of the wings when I make my sisters pair. Not sure how you would wear the wings Shukar. The sports bra is what keeps them from bouncing around while running. ;p
  5. pictures are posted in my last challenge thread http://nerdfitnessrebellion.com/index.php?/topic/33711-nicolecanoes-60-days-to-marathon/page-2
  6. I didn't die. School/research got crazy ridiculous. I am now working on two projects. One might be patented. And I might be able to graduate in a year. So I need to starting writing my thesis. Also going to the SWE conference and already have companies asking for my resume so I've been working on that as well. The marathon is in 2 weeks. The long run happened but I am having some knee problems. Might have twisted/pullled/bruised one of the muscles while hiking labor day weekend. It was muddy and there were trees uprooted and laying cross the path from the storm so hiking up the mountain was
  7. OK, research has been crazy and with how much time I have been running there hasn't been much computer time. I'm also not getting in as much foam rolling as I would like. I did eat green things and ice this weekend. I have given up on the burpees, my knees can't handle the standing to push-up position jump and running is more important. Did I mention work has been crazy. Saturday was a Color Me Rad 5k of epic awesomeness. Don't have time to post pictures.
  8. Glad to here it, more than 5 min is really necessary for some spots. Tennis ball. They also make travel sized roller sticks but TSA usually thinks it's a weapon.
  9. It's one of those things where I used to eat a tub of berries all the time but post whole30 it's too much sugar. I'm still struggling with eating enough calories post run.
  10. I'm so confused. Scrolls up, Scrolls farther up, gets reference video, reads slowly, googles clotted cream, all better now. I'm glad you are enjoying the slacklining. Are you attempting any tricks yet?
  11. Last week started ok and then progressively got worse where one not great decision led to a bad decision which led to a worse decision. Example, blueberries for breakfast led to a sugar crash during the day led to fast food for a quick recovery led to chocolate for another recovery led to awake at 11pm and playing on my phone led to a bad nights sleep. Example 2, Tuesdays run resulted in some knee pain so I skipped the burpees, which resulted in also skipping the foam rolling, which feeling crappy led to chocolate. Torrential down pour led to more chocolate. My birthday led to more chocolate.
  12. i usually need a good 5 mins on each spot to really release any tension. for my hips, my massage person said to roll into the tight spot and then just rest there for a couple minutes then repeat. calves is a roll for a min then roll the side for a min then back to the middle then the inside then back to the middle
  13. Sounds like your keeping a level head despite everything going on, good job.
