  1. Hello, I was searching the Internet yet again for some way to get my picky self to eat more vegetables and other healthy foods and found your post from years ago: "Picky Eater Considering Paleo By elinox, December 15, 2014 in Paleo/Primal" As I was scrolling through, I realized that I'd responded to that message too! It made me wonder how you were doing with your eating habits. I was pleasantly surprised to see you still here! I only show up about once per year. :-/ I announce my plan and never make it a day. :-P Anyway, I just wanted to say, "Yo
  2. Hi! It's been years since I've attempted a challenge. I'm fatter and slower. I need to get back to where I was a few years ago. I will clean out my fridge by Monday. (I'm going away for the weekend). I will eat at least 2 servings of vegetables everyday for the first week adding 1 serving each week. I will get up at 7am so I can run twice during the week.
  3. Yay! Riverview is my home-town! :-) I'm over is NS now.
  4. Still here. Eco Endurance Challenge occupies most things I do these days. I really want to do well. I've also been drywalling and taping and mudding. I should not be allowed to mud. I am not good at it. A drywaller would laugh and cry if they saw the way I mudded. I turn 40 on Tuesday. I wish that I could say that I was really coming into myself. I wish that the path was clearer. I wish... anyway... Physical: I will continue to run 2-3 per week at least 3km each time. Working towards an consistent average pace of 5:30/km. - I've been running as I should. I h
  5. Well.... we bought this place 6 years ago (to tear down and build new) and for 6 years I've wondered when the second floor was going to collapse. So, I built a secondary wall next to the original wall to secure it. Also, 2 years ago we turned a useless little room into the bathroom and until a month ago, it was open to the livingroom (only a towel blocked the view.) Drywall was definitely due. The livingroom has an useless old chimney so I built a bump out around it a bit wider than the tv so it looks a little more stylish and it provides more support for the second floor. By the time I'm don
  6. Thanks Tanktimus! I keep thinking about updating, but I haven't until now. This week I was tired and getting down about no job bites. It was cold and cloudy. My father came to help me frame and drywall so that's what I've been doing for the last 4 days. My husband has been working 9am-2am the last several days as well. Blah. Physical: I will continue to run 2-3 per week at least 3km each time. Working towards an consistent average pace of 5:30/km. - I ran 3 times this week about 3k each time. I will continue doing the squat and plank programs on my phone
  7. Hi! So... I spent 3 days at a hotel, so I swam more than I normally would and ate worse than normal. Physical: I will continue to run 2-3 per week at least 3km each time. Working towards an consistent average pace of 5:30/km. - I ran 3 times this week about 2k each time. I will continue doing the squat and plank programs on my phone 2-3 times per week - I haven't done this much this week I will complete 100km by April 23. I'm currently at 69km. - On track I will continue to orienteer, hike, and trail run in preparation for an upcoming EcoChallenge in early May. - to
  8. Thanks! Thanks! *blush* I can only find the one I'm going to do, but I know there must be more out there. This is what ours says, " The E2C is a hybrid of classical orienteering, ultra-distance running and the navigational training practices of Search and Rescue Emergency Responders. There is also a mountain bike option for teams who want an extra challenge! Good physical conditioning is necessary to push one through the tough terrain, but accurate navigation skills are key to finding controls and minimizing the distance traveled. The 24 hour challenge is mental

    I must say, I'm a little nervous about subscribing to this thread...

  11. You're an Assassin now!? I hope I didn't do anything to offend you.
  12. The official results are in! (and it's what I thought.) I came 197 out of 270 people of all ages. I was about 14th place in my age category of 35-49. Beep test Level 7.5 Vertical jump 13.5 inches Plank 180 seconds Agility 5.84 seconds 1000m Row 4.15 minutes.seconds
  13. Hello! Nice to see all of you again! Yesterday morning, I went for a 3km jog and did my usual squat and plank workout. But, I think that used up the tiny bit of reserves that I had built up since the challenge on Saturday. I was wiped out for the rest of the day. I rested in bed for large chunks of the day (which is EXTREMELY unusual for me). I'm still feeling drained. I need to sit down and plan my food intake for the next few days to get my energy back. Yeah, I think the first time I remember feeling melancholy after a race was last June. I think that
  14. "Just keep swimming" What are " butt things"? I was just reading several articles from this website and came across this and thought about you: http://dosomethingcool.net/when-feel-giving-up/
  15. I'm back. I haven't done the Nerd Fitness challenges so far in 2016. The 4 week challenges threw me for a loop. Anyway, just because I haven't been here, doesn't mean I've been sitting on my butt. I've continued running at least 8km/week and I'd been training for a challenge that took place last Saturday. For the event we did the events in the following order: Vertical jump: 13.5"? I haven't received an official measurement but, I apparently jumped 100.5 and my reach was 87... I assume this to be in inches and I should just subtract. Agility: 5.84 s
