marathon schedule

100 Days Ago

I took the plunge and started my Pre-op diet. I spent the previous 8 months fulfilling insurance requirements and preparing, but 100 days ago is when it started getting real.

This seems like a great place to take stock of where I am and where I am going on the journey so rather than a normal weekly report, here is a 100 day review.

Results so far

  • Down 96 lbs from Pre Op diet and 128 from Highest weight
  • 13.4 drop in BMI
  • Down 2 shirt and 4 pant sizes
  • Heart Rate, Blood pressure, Cholesterol, Vitamin / Mineral and hormone levels have all improved.
  • Activity up from sedentary to running 75 miles / month. I have also started swimming and kickboxing. 

Unexpected Struggles

It hasn’t been all rainbows and unicorns. I have had some struggles as well. Most of these a read about in advance but didn’t really “get it” until I was living with my new reality. 

  • I find I am spending a lot more time thinking about food. I have to be constantly focused on what to eat and when to eat it to ensure I get in the required protein while avoiding carbs. 
  • Staying hydrated is much more diffacult than expected. I can only drink a few oz at a time and plain water no longer tastes good to me. It is very easy to fall behind and not get enough water in.
  • Taking 6 vitamins a day, at exact times, is a bit of a pain. 
  • It is hard for me to eat anything solid before 10 am without feeling sick. 
  • I struggle to eat dense protein, like chicken without getting sick. 
  • If I eat too fast, too much or the wrong kinds of food, I will get sick. 
  • There are some days where I just feel queasy all day. 

What’s up next? 

  • This spring and summer are going to be very active for me. I currently have 2 5k, 5 10k and a ½ marathon scheduled. 
  • I have some cool WL milestones coming including 100 lbs lost and my lowest adult weight. I also hope to break into the 200s some time this spring!
  • I am starting to eat more volume and different, healthy foods. This will help me ease into my for life eating plan. 

So, 100 days in - I am very very happy with my decision to get WLS. I feel like I have been given a new lease on life and I won’t take it for granted.

Eremin Shipping Trivia
  • Eren will fight anyone who criticizes Armin whenever he chooses to wear more feminine clothes or when people use the wrong pronouns for Armin (who uses Him/They)
  • Eren and Armin are in a Queerplatonic relationship due to both of them being on the Ace spectrum
  • Cuddles. Lots and lots of cuddles. They love crashing on a huge mountain of pillows and blankets
  • They schedule Movie Marathons every two weeks and set up a little blanket fort to watch them in
  • They will do livestreams of them gaming
  • Eren is chicken about horror games and whenever Armin plays them the commentary is mostly Armin telling Eren that everything is fine
  • They hold hands A LOT
  • They share clothes
  • Eren loves taking selfies with Armin and they take loads and loads of selfies together
  • Armin loves giving Eren little kisses throughout the day
  • Armin loves those super tall heels and will wear them and Eren loves it and teases Armin about being taller than him
  • FOREHEAD KISSES. Eren will gently cup both sides of Armin’s face and plant the softest kisses
  • Eren gives Armin piggy-back rides every so often and they charge up and down the dorm hallways. Sometimes Sasha and Connie join in and they have races.
  • Armin loves shaved ice, so whenever it’s around Eren buys Armin two of them.
  • They set up those cup-string communication systems that kids do between their beds. At first, it started out as a joke but now they take it really seriously.
  • Eren sometimes does little braids in Armin’s hair and Armin keeps them in all day
  • They do face painting for fun in the residence halls commons or in their dorm. Sometimes they keep their door propped open and put up a sign offering face painting to the other 104th kids
  • Although Armin has grown more comfortable with his telepathy and telekinesis, sometimes he still freaks out about using them and Eren is always there to help calm him

One hour including a 30 minute goal pace run was on the marathon training schedule for this evening. It was so dark that there was no way I was doing anything but stay on the footpath and out of the potholes. I somehow managed to run into a tree much to Daughters amusement. The rest of my evening was taken up with writing up my running log and not much more. I can’t stop yawning. Time for bed. Night all💤💤💤💤💤

anonymous asked:

Headcanons for a Half-Blood 1st Year who lived more among Muggles than Wizards?

1. The half-blood is an expert coder and loves tinkering with computers, so the half-blood gets pretty annoyed when they find out how Hogwarts’ magic interferes with the functioning of their gadgets.

2. With the help of some of the older Muggle-borns and half-blood like her/him, the first year devises a way to make their gadgets magic-friendly. An older Muggle-born Ravenclaw modifies laptop motherboards in such a way that it uses magic to get wifi and internet - the result being that Hogwarts has high-speed, unlimited Wi-Fi.

3. That makes some of the Ilvermony half-bloods jealous, because goddamn it’s April and they need to know what’s going on in Westeros and if their Instagram has suffered from a loss of followers. The Hogwarts kids help them out anyways, and somebody from Ilvermony finds a way to adapt this to iPhones and other gadgets - the result is happiness everywhere.

4. They’re massive fans of Muggle bands, and introduce their magical friends to the wonders of Coldplay and Maroon 5. Somebody discovers Watch Me Whip, and the result is Slytherin & Gryffindor having a massive dance-off, with Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw joining in with Turn Down For What.

5. When the first year discovers how NO ONE knows about Star Wars, they have a Star Wars marathon scheduled one Saturday night for their dorm-mates. A week later, the entire castle is humming the main theme, and students are trying to make their wands act like lightsabers.

6. They stump everyone in Potions class when they brew the perfect potion with the help of “those weird things that are test-tubes”.

7. “What do you mean, we can’t travel to other planets? We've stepped on the Moon, for Merlin’s sake!”

Shuttin’ down the gym with 4 very late miles on the treadmill. I slept through 2 alarms this morning, so I had to wait until after my son’s choral concert tonight.

Running in the winter sucks. The dark and the cold make it very difficult. I can motivate myself to get up early in the warmer months, but it just ain’t gonna happen right now.

Work has been time-consuming, I’m still struggling with injury, and I have no marathon on my spring schedule. Those are all excuses, but my drive to run is low. Hoping I turn a corner soon with my PT so I can feel normal again.

PS - therapist said it’s important to stretch after foam rolling. I always just went to bed or whatever after. Who knew?

anonymous asked:

Don't you have any tip to get out of bed in the morning lol I have the hardest time going out for morning run because of it

1.  Get to bed early.

Some people think they can watch late-night TV and still get up early for a run. Do yourself a favor –- DVR your favorite late TV shows and plan to get to bed in time to guarantee yourself 7-8 hours of sleep.

2.  Sleep in your running clothes.

This trick may seem a little bit silly, but runners who have tried it say that it works. Of course, don’t sleep with your running shoes on – those you’ll have to put on once you get out of bed.

3.  Or, lay out your clothes.

If you don’t feel like sleeping in your clothes, at least lay them out, all ready to go. Having your clothes right there will make it much easier to get dressed to run. Some runners even like to put their clothes in the bathroom, which forces them to wake up a little and then get dressed. (Added bonus: If you have a snoozing spouse next to you, he or she will appreciate not being disturbed.)

4.  Put your alarm clock out of reach.

When that alarm goes off early in the morning, it’s tempting to keep hitting the snooze button and skip your running plans. But if your alarm clock is across the room, you’re already out of bed and a lot less likely to say, “Just 10 more minutes…”

5.  Have a training schedule.

If you’re training for a specific race and following a training schedule, it’s much harder to blow off those morning runs. You’ll think to yourself, “I have to be ready for that half-marathon,” or, “My schedule says 5 miles today. Gotta run.”

6.  Think about your plan the night before.

Plan out your morning run the night before – how far, for how long, what course you’ll run. Doing so will help you get more motivated for your run and ensure that you have enough time for your run before you start the rest of your day.

7.  Get a morning running buddy.

If you usually run by yourself, try to recruit a running friend to meet you in the morning. Or, find a running group that meets in the morning. You’ll be less likely to skip your run if you know people are waiting for you.

8.  Eat something light.

It’s never good to run on an empty stomach, but you most likely won’t have a lot of extra time to eat and then digest your food. So, try eating something small like an energy bar or a banana, so you’re not running on empty.

9.  Wear reflective gear.

If you’re running in the early morning, wear white, yellow, or orange clothes. Also, make sure you have reflective gear on. Although some items (running shoes, jackets) already have reflective pieces on them, it doesn’t hurt to add more.

10.  Drink some water.

You’re most likely going to wake up dehydrated, so make sure you drink about 6-8 ounces of water before you start your run.

RT / RvB Online Meet Up!

Live in the middle of nowhere? Don’t have the time or money to attend local RT gatherings? Hyped about RvB season 12? Annoyed with me asking questions? 

Well, here’s your solution! 

This weekend I, HotforGold, will be hosting a stream to marathon RvB seasons 1-11. Everyone is welcome!

(Depending on if I can get another few mods to help out there will be two separate streams, one with a small group on call giving commentary to those who have seen RvB before, and another for people who are new to RvB or would rather not have the commentary going on during the marathon

The schedule for that will be as follows : 

Friday : We start at 7pm CST with season 1, take a 10 min break, season 2, another break, and then season 3. 

Saturday : 4pm CST with season 4, 10-20 min break, season 5, break, season 6, break, season 7. 

Sunday : 4pm CST with season 8, 10-20 min break, season 9, break, season 10, break, and end it with season 11. 

Now that’s not all! 

That Monday the 28th I’ll be hosting a game of Cards Against Humanity with anyone who wants to join at 6pm CST. More rooms will be opened if the demand is high enough and if I have enough mods to monitor (and play!) in each room. 

After that everyone can come back to a stream where me and the mods will be on skype call answering questions and talking about RvB while streaming miscellaneous RT videos (and whatever else. Really just one big hangout!) until the premiere of RvB season 12! (Depending on when the episode premieres this will either be held before or after the premiere

For more information please contact me via my tumblr! 

Important : Now I’ve talked a lot about mods throughout this. Unfortunately I don’t have a lot of friends openly available so if you’re available for these dates and you wanna be on call and help monitor everything, please contact me as soon as possible! Everyone that helps out will personally receive a drawing from me as thanks! (Might be some limit to this)

Follow me here on tumblr or at NothingButTheG on twitter for updates!

According to the Survey Results, the best weekend seems to be that of February 6 & 7, and to do it over two days. Most people want chronological order, and the split between movies is at a dead heat, so here is the tentative schedule for our Walking With Marathon: 

February 6: 

3 PM Eastern Time: Walking With Monsters Episode 1
3:40 PM Eastern Time: Walking With Monsters Episode 2
4:20 PM Eastern Time: Walking With Monsters Episode 3
5 PM Eastern Time: Intermission
5:30 PM Eastern Time: Walking With Dinosaurs Episode 1
6:10 PM Eastern Time: Walking With Dinosaurs Episode 2
6:50 PM Eastern Time: Intermission
7:20 PM Eastern Time: Walking with Dinosaurs Episode 3 
8:00 PM Eastern Time: Walking with Dinosaurs Episode 4
(Should be done around 8:30 to 8:40)

February 7

2 PM Eastern Time: Walking With Dinosaurs Episode 5 
2:40 PM Eastern Time: Walking With Dinosaurs Episode 6 
3:20 PM Eastern Time: Intermission 
3:50 PM Eastern Time: Walking With Beasts Episode 1 
4:30 PM Eastern Time: Walking With Beasts Episode 2 
5:10 PM Eastern Time: Walking With Beasts Episode 3 
5:50 PM Eastern Time: Intermission 
6:20 PM Eastern Time: Walking With Beasts Episode 4 
7:00 PM Eastern Time: Walking With Beasts Episode 5 
7:40 PM Eastern Time: Walking With Beasts Episode 6 
(Should be done around 8:10 to 8:20) 

I tried to divide it up as evenly as I could between the two days, and I hope this works out for people - keep in mind there’s only so much I can do, I can’t accommodate everyone. If you can only see part, well, at least you got to see part!
