Thanksgiving Day Run
After not having run in 5 weeks, I plan on doing an 8k running race in Hastings, MN on Thanksgiving Day morning. The Gobble Gait 8k/2k. I plan on using this as my inaugural get back into running motivator. I haven't been totally lazy, since I've been biking about 80 miles per week for the past five weeks, but I know it's not the same as running. I'm also signed up for a December 2nd Triathlon training plan workshop at the Uptown YWCA. I'm looking forward to developing a good training plan for the winter and preparing for my spring/summer goals.
Haha, so this Thursday I'll be burning off my turkey before the meal is even served!

Good for you, John!! I wish I could run in that race, but I haven't ridden so far as you have, and my running schedule does not yet exist just now. However, I am going to get things going, though it is hard to do with the chemo flowing every two weeks. But I will get into the YMCA here in town after the first of the year, and that will help me get into training, and figure out just what I want to do come October, '07. We shall see.

Hey, if you go to the Y, those elyptical machines are really cool. They give you a good cardio workout without the pounding of running. You should try those. I had a lot of fun doing those as part of my workout schedule.
And everyone's workouts are based on our lives so do what you can when you can, ie. biking seems to be working for you while doing your chemo. Hang in there Steve, and remember that any regular exercise is better than none! The Key i think is doing it 'regularly'.
