Thanks coffee! Although I got out a lot later than I should have considering the heat, all in all a solid 10: 1:33 min at a 9:22 avg pace.

Followed by another in a series of epic naps. This is one of those days where I just don't feel like venturing out into the heat. Heading up to watch DC United later so hopefully it won't be so steamy.

Take care all.

Good run Grand

Coffee, good 20......always the machine !?!

Tom, congrats on 9 months, man.

Ghostly, way to keep mixing it up. You'll never get caught "in a rut"; for sure.
Your gym sounds like a good one. Certainly no social club !?!

Judy, ......was out today doing a little run- walking with 4 dogs midday too. The whippet doesn't do so well in the heat, so walking to the beach was out.

another nap before work tonight.

Y'all have a fun, safe, 4th !!

Just a "get the heck out of my way" mood. Yesterday we drove to a drumline show my son was competing in about an hours drive from here, and on the way back my wife commented that I looked very disconnected. I had been in "my own little world" at the show even though there were 2000 people around me for 2 hours.

In past times, I would have polished off a bottle of scotch to wash away these lows, but that is the last thing on my mind right now, and I thank SR and all of you here for letting me see the light. The 9 months....no need to congratulate me...... I'm just doing what I always knew I needed to do.
~~~~~~~~~
A local bike store 3.5 miles from my home has Saturday morning organized rides. Today's ride was passing two blocks from my house on the way back. My own backyard. The only problem is that a lot of young people and hammerheads do these rides and it contained a lot of climbing.

No long ride for me tomorrow, so I did this one instead. Only 37 miles with close to 3000' of climbing, fast pace, but it wiped me out. It was one of those rides where I had to work very hard to stay with the 35 year olds the entire ride and half way through I kept challenging my own sanity. It was hard work from the get go. Not to mention that it got up to 92 today.

Two hours after I was done, I realized that it really had been a very nice workout. I just did not appreciate it at the time. Hopefully I will wake up a little bit more fit because of it and a lot happier than I've been lately.

Thanks.....

Hmmmm...not sure what's goin on with your mood Tom. A week is a long time to be crabby with no particular reason. Hope you can get it figured out. What amazes me is how little it affects your routine. You still get the rides in and still stick to your diet (I presume). Hope you can get it figured out. Nice job for stayin with sobriety through this all.

Top - You were walking with four dogs? Hope you and them had a good time.

Today was bittersweet for me. Our gym had a group work out. It was a team competition with three people on a team. Runs, rowing, squats, barbell and kettle bell exercises to name a few. There were stations and time limits. Our team came in first! Didn't expect that. We had a female on our team that really kicked it, but we all did our part.

That was the good part. The other part is that it may have been my last work out there as my work schedule (I go back Tuesday) and the gym schedule don't jive at this point. I would like to keep going there, and the possibility is open, but at this point it doesn't look like it will work. So, I'll do my own thing for a bit and check into other options.

I ate a lot of ice cream today. Feelin kinda sick now.

Broke up with my long-time GF this am. Thank goodness for sobriety, otherwise it would've sent my anxiety level through the roof. Been a long time coming.

Determined to stay single for a while; ......need time for some personal improvement.

Yeah...If I get done on time I get home around 10:30pm. Not nearly as late as you, though it is not uncommon for me to have to stay later. Still, not exactly able to get in for a 6am class. I don't walk in the door and fall asleep, normally up for a few after I get home. Noon-ish class would work best.

Well, nice of you to watch the dogs for the ex.

GF: Glad you got those miles! Awesome, specially in the heat. Good Job.

Top: Good for you for being the 'adult' and making a relationship change. Those are so tough.

Tom: Yeah. In past times, I would have polished off a bottle of scotch to wash away these lows, but that is the last thing on my mind right now, and I thank SR and all of you here for letting me see the light. I was thinking about that today, too. Sometimes I think (no, I KNOW) I'd get torked off about something and use it as an excuse to drink. Learning not to do that has been tough, lately. Yeah, you're doing what you should be doing, BUT, you still need to be commended for doing what is right. So, like it or not, you're commended.

Ghost: Back to work will put a spin on working out/child care/family life/etc! I think you're up for the challenge. And, ice cream eating for me today as well. Homemade ice cream....dang!

Nothing for me. I wanted 10, but lots of family today and tomorrow, so it's not going to happen until Monday. I'm going to take the high road and just roll with it, for a change.

Stay safe, my friends.

Wow...Think this is a latest Coffee has been up! I actually have no idea where you are (not askin), so it may not be late where you are...but I never see you make posts this late where I am. Well, as you say, life got in the way, and you missed out on some runs. Hang with the fam, and make up for it Monday.

Also...oh yeah, I did work for a couple weeks after my daughter was born, but my wife had been off. So, this will be the first time both of us will be working since we've had her. We're actually pretty lucky, and have family watching her as much as we can, so hopin to avoid day care for many reasons, including $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

So yes...this will be interesting to balance family, work, and still wanting to work out. I've talked to others I work with about how they did it, and was told I can get this done, but it has to be a priority. So, if I find somethin around noon, I may be able to do a gym. Just keeping the option opens.

Happy Sunday morning.

Top. They always say not to make major changes in your life the first few months of recovery, but you have been at it longer than that and you say it was long time coming, so the best to you in your decision. We are here for you.

Ghost, congrats on your winner-ship. I'm sure you will find a way to make your schedule work. Have you thought about a fitness class at a community college instead of a gym? Just an idea.

Judy, how are the feet? And please stop picking on my typos. When I speak, half of the people don't understand me anyway.

Ms. Coffee. Happy running 10 on Monday, and please wake up MyG on your way out the door. I think he is still power napping.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sorry to trouble you guys with my issues. I always push forth and try to swat away all the negative in my life and highlight the positive. Alcohol used to provide a little hole for me to go hide in when things did not go my way and that safety valve is no longer around. Got to focus on recovery and to me, fitness is part of the whole package.

Going to be a long day for me today. Driving to another one of my son's drumline shows and competition this afternoon. This one is 3 hours away, and my sister in law and a friend of hers are coming with us. I hope S-I-Law just sits in the back seat and contains herself to no more than 80% of the conversation on this trip. Any one has an extra pair of earphones I can borrow?

Trying to save my energy (and sanity) today, I just limited myself to a 2.5 mile beagle walk this morning before the heat sets in. For the dog, not me. He does not like to walk when it is hot outside. One time I had to put him in a shopping cart and push him for ten minutes cause he just would not move when it was over 90.

Great day everyone.

Murray, congratulations on your one year of sobriety. Hope your ankles are feeling better. I was watching that show "Dual Survival" on the Discovery channel. One of those guys walks barefoot wherever they go no matter where they have to survive at.

Jackie, good job with the 4.5 miles. And good first step in buying nicotine patches to quit smoking. It's got to start somewhere if you want to quit.

R4R, good to see your physical therapist is digging into your flesh to get you better. Hope you get well.

topspin, sorry to hear about your break up with your girlfriend. Good job with the 31 mile bike ride before work. I'm big on naps also. Night night.

mygrandfather, hope your PF is going to be ok. Be careful. PF is what did LaFemme in.

Ghostly, you're doing it all. Warrrior Dash, body weight exercises, squats, deadllifts, power snatches...good job.

jamdls, going to lunch and a movie with your 5 year old grandson is a precious moment. I'm so happy for you. You're right. The workouts can wait when it comes to your grandson. Because you know you're going to get it in one way or another.

tom, hang in there with those negative, weird feelings you've been having. You're right about acknowledging them and dealing with them. And it's huge you're not drinking over them. For me it all starts with how I start my day. There's nothing I can do about yesterday. All I have is today. It's up to me to make it a good day.

coffeenut, that 20 miler was huge. Great job.

I had last Friday off of work and I get this week off also. It's a much needed break. Yesterday me and my family went to my sister's pool party she has once a year. We always have fun there. I come from a drinking family. I'm the only one who doesn't drink. But it's no big deal anymore. I just have my water and pop and everyone knows what the deal is. But it's not going to stop their drinking, and that's ok.

Tuesday I'm going camping in a tent with my two sons ages 15 and 16 for one night. My wife doesn't care for camping, and that's ok. I've been busy the past few days setting up my 8 person, 17 x 10 foot tent in my backyard and figuring out how I'm going to keep the tent cool in this heat, where to set up the electric fan in the tent, making sure the air mattresses and air pump works, mosquito spray, cooking...It's been probably 18 years since I last camped in a tent, so I don't want any surprises when I get out there. I'm doing this mainly to bond with my sons, something I need to put more effort on even though I quit drinking before they were born and they've never seen me pick up a drink. It's about being "emotionally there". I realize the clock is ticking and there's probably only so many more times I can do this with them.

Then on Friday all four of us are going to Michigan Adventure Amusement and water park on the west side of the state for one night. I'm really looking forward to this week to spend more time with my family and getting away from the grind at work.

Sunday morning workout: Bench press, lats, traps, abs.

As I mentioned before, I plan on maxing out on the bench press by increasing the poundages 10 pounds a week until I can no longer get 1 rep. I'm guessing I'll max out anywhere from 365-385 pounds in the next 3-4 weeks, but I'm not sure. I've been getting a lift off from either of my sons. But I told them not to touch the bar after that to make sure I can get these reps on my own unless I ask for help, which I haven't done so far.

Warmed up by jogging on the treadmill for 5 minutes.

Bench press: 135 lbs x 5 reps, 225 x 5, 295 x 1, 345 lbs for 3 reps on first set. 345 x 2 reps on my second set. All reps touch n go and all me (no one touching the bar to help get it up).

Close grip bench press: 315 x 3 (paused each rep).

Wide grip lat pulldowns to the front: 180 x 5 reps.
Wide grip lat pulldowns behind the neck: 180 x 5.
V-bar pulldowns: 180 x 8.

Barbell shrugs: 315 x 5.

Stability ball crunches x 20 reps followed by hanging leg raises x 10 reps.

Stretched out whole body for 20 minutes.

Uncle - So cool bout the camping and water park trip. You seem very prepared, out there making sure everything works before you go. That sounds like me. I like to check things, and make sure they're ready before hand. Huge tent man!

You may have answered this, but does your family know about your alcohol history? Do they know you intentionally don't drink? Or as far as they know, you just aren't drinking at that time?

Awesome work outs man! You are kickin it with that weight. Wow. Good luck on your goal.

Tom - That's why we're here brother. Talk about what bothers you. Most of us here used to run to alcohol and / or drugs to hide or mask pain. To escape. We identify with that. I miss it at times. Still, I'm better off facing things then avoiding them by being drunk. Congrats on stayin strong.

Ghostly, my family (siblings, parents, relatives...) knows first thing on just about everything that happened to me. I've been an alcoholic so long that I really don't care who knows now. Luckily for me, I've been able to stay sober for a long time, so there's not as much to hide anymore. My alcoholism started when I was very young while in high school. It was a disastrous situation to be an alcoholic at that age.

How anything like that could happen is a sad, long story, but it did happen. There was a lot of alcohol and drinking in our house when I was a kid growing up in the 70's. My dad was a horrible example for us kids while growing up and is an alcoholic himself, even though he won't admit it. But that's a different story. That's why to this day I will never allow any alcohol in my house. I look at it like leaving a loaded gun on the table without the safety lock on around the house that kids have access to. I look at alcohol as being that dangerous for me and the kids.

Even though I've been sober for 19 years now, it's still uncomfortable to admit that I was an alcoholic at that age. But at the same time it's growth to face the truth and then do something about it. Many times something good comes out of a bad situation.

For example, because of what happened to me, my kids have gotten a good education about the dangers of drinking and drugs, especially at a young age. I basically beat it in their heads since elementary school on not to do alcohol and drugs, stay in sports, do good in school...My 15 year old now just walks away or tells me to stop if I lecture them on that now. And that's ok. I don't lecture them that much anymore on it.

But the good news is it's in their heads from the talks I gave to them while growing up on the dangers of alcohol and drugs. So far they have not gotten into any trouble and as far as I know have not even tried alcohol and drugs. Even though I know I'm not God and can't control alot of stuff that goes on, I can now look in the mirror with satisfaction that at least I did my part in that area of life.

Happy 4th of July. Except for for Murray who is really close, I do believe all of us "regulars" here are in the US, right?

I've been feeling much better and upbeat the past couple of days. Maybe posting about my issues has helped me to re-center myself.

Driving back from my son's drumline comp last night, sometime close to midnight, we were stopped on the highway for a while. There was a horrible accident with a dozen ambulances, paramedics, highway patrolmen..... 4 or 5 cars involved. One car was upside down totally mangled. If any one survived that, they will never be the same again.

All I could think about for the rest of the drive home was how fortunate I am that I no longer drive loaded, and of course I worry about my kids being on the highway in the same area at the same time, with 3 or 4 of their buddies in the car with them. Very scary.
~~~~~~~~~~
I used to be a closet drinker. I worked very hard so that my kids would never see me drink. Maybe a beer or a glass of wine here and there while I had a bottle hidden someplace else in the house. There were a couple of exceptions when I really did loose it and they are well aware that I have a problem.

I have from very early on talked to them about alcoholism and how is is heredity. Even when I was fully immersed in my drinking career. I never really lectured them about it, but I have gone out of my way for them to understand that as they get older and exposed to alcohol, they need to be concerned. Hopefully they have my wife's genes. She will drink "seasonally" and usually will have a glass of wine and only drink half of it. "Did not like it" she will always say.
~~~~~~~~
Got home at 1 AM, totally drained. Stupid beagle jumped on my bed at 6 AM and I could not go back to sleep but I am too drained to do anything physical this morning. Maybe later.
~~~~~~~~
Congrats on the 19 years Uncle. Enjoy the camping and time with the family.

Great (and safe) day everyone.

Top, coffee, Uncle, Murray, Ghost, everyone hope your 4th is peaceful (or hectic and fun).

Top, sorry to hear about losing your GF, as it so happens I was just drafting a letter (yes a written letter) to my ex. we continue to be friends but the sense of loss is palpable. I often feel like I just blew it and lost one of the best people out there.

Tom, there are times I just find myself feeling anxious and angry at nothing and everything...no reason behind it but I always try to take a breath and step back.

Got a sweaty 3 miles in today, and my floor work. Three yesterday as well. One year ago exactly I was starting up my intense training regimen for the Chicago marathon using one of Hal Higdon's programs. Funny but my current mileage roughly is the same as it was for the Intermediate II routine.

Tom: You don't burden us, Tom. I see many things that you say and I have done the exact same thing. Now, I'm trying to cope with it in much the same way. So, it helps! Besides that....last time I looked this was an alcoholism forum. Oh....and I didn't realize beagles could jump!

Ghost: Late nights here along with early mornings. Things will square away, soon. Enjoy getting back to workk, tomorrow!

Uncle: Sure enjoyed your post. Thank you.

GF: Mileage is so....well, I can't explain it. I actually enjoy going through old log books and looking comparing. It's nice to run, just to run, though. Sometimes a race can suck the life right out of a run.

10 miles for me. It was too hot and I was probably dumb to go out, but I just kept pouring water over my head....and I got what I wanted. This might go under 'sucking the life out of a run for a race'.

Happy 4th, all!

Hi Gang! wow a lot going on here over the weekend! Sounds like everyone had a good 4th I had a great weekend and really did not want to come back to work today.

MGF: Good job on the miles, I hear ya on the 'epic naps' I'm rather experienced in those myself

Tom: Hope your happy IQ is back up and staying up, like the others have said we're all here to listen to each other, sure this is a 'fitness' thread but mental fitness is even more important than the physical. You should be proud of yourself for sobriety, I continue to reward myself on a regular basis for my sobriety (nobody else is going to to do it) and I think we all should.
Oh and I will pick on your typos any time I want! especially when they make me laugh!

Ghosty: WB to the work world! that's great that ya'll have family to watch the baby you are very fortunate

Top: Sorry about the breakup, good for you for dealing with it responsibly and like an adult. I'm only now after nearly 4 yrs sober ready to start dating and I'm glad I've waited because now I think I can handle anything.

Tom: LOL @ beagle in a shopping cart!

Coffee: Be careful running in the heat, I always worry about people I see running here when it's around 100 deg and mid day I'm afraid they are going to crash from heat exhaustion and fall in the road and I'll hit them

Uncle: Enjoy your vacation! and good luck with the son bonding/camping sounds great!

I had a really great weekend and I did finally get back to the gym (ant bites are all better just little spots now swelling is gone) did 45 min elip and 25 min free weights on Sunday and yesterday I was out walking at an art fair and and antique car show so I figure that was my exercise.

Let's all Kick some A today!
