ok, since i'm just sitting here posting again and again, i never REALLY introduced myself. i'm lyssa, i'm 30, i have three small kids and lots of chaos, i'm a stay at home mom, homeschooler. i did my first tri on labor day, my time was one i'll surely beat next time i love running, i like swimming, and i'm not in love with cycling. well, i might be someday, that's the hope anyway, but i stink at it big time. i've always been "big" until just this summer when i for whatever reason, i just started running. now i wouldn't say i'm small, but i'm significantly smaller than i've ever been before. although i WOULD like to lose this last 10 lbs (it's part of my november goal) but having gone from a size 14 to a size 6, i'm pretty much ok with where i'm at--for the most part. i live out in the middle of nowhere, and i've been married for almost 10 years to a cop. we live in washington state, and we almost always have. i grew up on the east side of the state-spokane, but now live on the west side (more like seattle)
that's me. i'm seriously competative-but in a friendly way--

i like the kangaroos, and the......ah poop, i forgot, i'll look again, then edit

the goalies, that was it--goalies and goalkickers-- my two coppers as steve would say

Hello Winners (we will be, oh yes, we will be) and welcome to the November Challenge.

I'm Jason, 27 year old Hotel Manager/Cash Auditor/Official for a Minor League Hockey team in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Was a 14 year hockey player and soccer player, who played a year of both in college before hurting my back pretty bad. Was pretty inactive for a couple years, but just started getting back into a less round shape earlier this summer.

Did my first Triathlon at the end of September, and am hoping to do 3-5 sprints next year as well. Maybe moving up to an oly distance the summer or two after that.

I was a member of the victorious Poison Apples team last month, and plan to be on the winning team this month as well, even with my much loftier goals.

Goals for November are:

5000 yards swimming. (previous months best was 3000)
40 miles walking/jogging (small step down from last month to focus on the other two events)
60 miles biking (biking was forgotten last month, but won't be this month)

I got a jump start on swimming and biking before my shift tonight (I work nights, so 8pm to me is 8am of November 1st) Did 7.3 miles on the bike, and 1000 yards swimming. Not a bad start. I will probably do more biking and walking in the morning even.

So, thats me

Hi AussieApple7's!

I'm so looking forward to this challenge! Thanks to Dee for organizing it and to Cat for being our fearless leader!

I'm Jenna--  a mom to two great kids- son is 7 and daughter is 9, and I'm married to a super-supportive guy- also a middle aged recreational athlete. (Hockey-- but he's waaaay better at--and more obsessed with--his sport than I am with mine!)

I came to this late in life with zero athletic background (exercise interfered with my smoking and drinking!) When I cleaned up my act, married, had kids-- I put on a few lbs. Then a few more and.... you get the idea. A few years ago, I started jogging and lifting weights via Body for Life, then trained for a half-mary with Team in Training (daughter is a leukemia survivor). Training for the half-mary (I was about 30 lbs heavier) I got injured and my husband suggested I try triathlon as a way to mix it up and save my old and injured joints.   Of course my response was "But I haven't been on a bike in 20 years, and I can't swim!"  I think he said something like "Uh... you could take a lesson or something."

So I did. I've only done 2 sprint tri's (last year), and I"m slower than molasses, but I really enjoy it. Due to some health and family circumstances, I more or less took the summer off this year, and am easing back into it now. These challenges are really helping, and as a former Apple, I'm happy to see so many of my former teammates on this team!

My goals are 30 miles running, 8 hours swimming, and 4 hours core workouts this month.

I'd also like to shed about 8 lbs (trying for 16 down by New Year's.) But that's just between you and me.

Happy November!

jasonbohn9 - 2007-11-01 1:24 AM Hello Winners (we will be, oh yes, we will be) and welcome to the November Challenge. I'm Jason, 27 year old Hotel Manager/Cash Auditor/Official for a Minor League Hockey team in Milwaukee, Wisconsin...

 

Which Team Jason? I"m not sure how I missed this the first time around but-- anyway-- does your team ever play the K-Wings? Big hockey family here-- Husband plays over 30 with a bunch of retired K-Wings, coaches son's Mite Team,  and we get to alot of KWings and CCHA college games. A friend is the equip mgr for UAF Nanooks, and whenever the Nanooks play MSU UofM, Western, Notre Dame down here, we get to go see them.  Fun stuff! 

You played for 14 years! Wow-- I have a feeling my son is headed down that path.  We didn't really push him at all, (really!) but he's been on skates since he could walk. He did  learn to skate and learn to play for 2 yrs, then a cross-ice 3-on-3 program. This is his first year in Mites-- I think we've taken a pretty relaxed course compared to so many of the over the top hockey parents I see. Any words of wisdom for this hockey mom?  

Sorry for the long hijack--- will PM my long hijacks next time!

Jenna

i will continue with the hijack real quick

I work with the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League, which is a step up from the K-wings. Played for 14 years including a year at Lakeland College in Sheboygan, which no longer has a team.

---end hijack-----

quick update before I go to bed.

I'm at 11.1 miles on the bike
1000 yards swim
1.3 miles run/jogging

NOT A BAD START!

jenna-i don't know how i was on the same team as you last month, and didn't know ANY of that!! LOL stinky-me for not paying attention.
well here it is the first of the month. hooray. i'm not running until this afternoon, because dh got called in early this morning, he should be home by 3pm though, so then i'll go out. i'm scheduled for a long run today too, am hoping i might be at 10% for at least the running part by the end of the day. that's lofty since my last long run was just a little over 5 miles, and i'll need seven and a half to hit 10% but we'll see how i feel when i get out there.
now i gotta go look for some legs!!

Nope- not your fault Lyssa! I'm not even sure I gave the long version last time-- and I think I wrote more in that one post than I did the whole time in the Apples thread! I hope to have a bit more time this month to get to know my teammates.
