    Scouts Camp 2019 : From jungle to the beach

    ^^^ My theme today. Not necessarily in a good way...but maybe I should re-think that.

    Xena makes a new start

    I *knew* it!! I "nope-d it" on a run today. It was predicted to be hot...then the local forecast didn't looks so bad...but in fact it WAS that bad. I jogged for about two miles then got hot enough that I couldn't hold a steady pace and had to run/walk the rest of the way home. Got in 5 miles of misery. Made my calorie goal today, bringing me to 16/16 for the challenge. Also hit new low weight today (since at least the beginning of the year). Looking to lose another pound or two and then (the tricky part) stay under that threshold. Gaining traction on the pushups. Managed 5 yesterday, bringing me to 29/100. Will try to get some in today still. Oh yes coffeemaker, you will be mine! Leave early tomorrow for a work trip for several days. I'll have internet access but likely will fall behind a bit on the forums.

    Strickland5 gets back on the wagon

    You're at the top of the list! At least a little true. They are surely cowering in some corner of the dark web having been thoroughly smited by our resident Paladin! You are quite the disruptor! This is kind of Trickster-god behavior. Today....wtf?? I was off my game today. I'm tired and drained. The summer does that to me. Part of it was running the mile last night. It really flipped my schedule and I ended up getting to bed late. Part of it is the exhaustion from keeping my interns going. Doing all the thinking for everyone wears me out. This is a short-term problem...it gets better. Today I did 4 pushups. That's good. I decided to take the day off running/biking for various reasons. That's fine, and was even written in as an option in my schedule. I ate crap because I got home late and was tired. I feel blah. I'm going to turn off the computer, organize the house a bit, stretch a bit, and go to bed early(ish). Tomorrow is another day.

    Morag's unexpected journey.

    Love the bee pictures! Glad you had a good experience camping. I think this one is really a journey for all of us. Keep on that path.
  6. No but almost anything else does. "Another day, another farthing" sounds kind of cool. Maybe you guys should have kept those around. Do you have to wait for the mysterious lung plague to clear up before your surgery? Or maybe your surgeon could do something about that while he's having fun sewing up all the tendons.... (But seriously, glad you got an actual clear diagnosis)

    Simplicity: DJTrippy T

    Give it a try for sure. And it seems like a different kind of job application, so even if you didn't get it, applying might lead to some interesting connections.
  8. That is allowed, just wouldn't be extra credit. Impressed! I've been working on it for weeks and can only do a few. Today was the first time in recent memory that I managed 2 in a row...but I'm still only up to 4 for the day. Still impressed!

    Sloth gets some miles in

    I agree! That would work...or the cheaper option of getting a strap that slides onto the stems and that you can tighten in the back ("Croakies"). I don't think so. But then again, I'm not a hipster cyclist :-)

    Run Thom Run 2

    It's hard to find someone period. But what you list above doesn't sound too crazy. Lots of women would have children of their own, and could be open to and understanding of your own family relationship. Or maybe they don't have children of their own, but are good open-hearted people. Not crazy to look for that.

    Pack. Move. Unpack: Tanktimus Relocates Forum Headquarters

    I didn't know that trick about wiggling the baby's bottom. cool!
  12. I'm so proud of you Nic, no matter what happens. Throwing up is incontrovertible proof that you absolutely tried as hard as you could. Not pleasant but impressive. It's normal to feel disappointed and frustrated. You are right...you gotta just wait to see what happens and then decide from there.

    The Rise of Skywalker

    Was definitely NF. Maybe someone in Scandinavia...don't remember who....
  14. I'm almost positive it's 30s per side. That's what I did, but now I'll go do 60 just to be sure :-) ETA: done

    Surely Im not TOO old for this

    Oh wow, sometimes even otherwise awesome people suck. You aren't too old. That trail looks hard. I have no idea if you are fit enough for it now or not. But yes, you can train for it and do it. I ABSOLUTELY agree with you. Would you do it with a guide/group?
