I'm sorry I haven't been able to walk with you guys any more. The timing just doesn't work for me, we do most of our work around the house in the morning while it's still cool and with Rod being diabetic we need to eat dinner at a more or less regular time. Driving to Medford, or really anywhere else late in the day, walking and then driving home gets me back kind of late to fix dinner and eat at a reasonable time. If you guys ever want to come here and walk on the trail by the canal you're always welcome. I've been going the other direction lately because I was having trouble with a little dog following me on the other route. I couldn't get him to go back home and didn't want him following me onto the highway.
Jaynee (FIT4MEIN2013) drove down from Roseburg this morning and walked with me on the canal road. It was nice meeting her, there's a picture of us on my page.

Erin,
Sorry it isn't working out for everyone to continue to walk after the Color Run finished. I can't really drive to Medford that late in the day and get home to fix dinner at a reasonable time. Since Rod is diabetic I have to keep meal times in mind. Early mornings are when we do a lot of our outside work because it gets too hot later in the day so that doesn't work for me either. Since the only other retired person in our group is Steph, that leaves late morning or early afternoon out. I'm sorry, it seems to be pretty hard to co-ordinate everyone's schedules.

Well, it seems as though everyone is still a little busy with life plans or interruptions.... so until further notice -- at such time that someone says they want to walk again -- I will continue with my program at home. My DH has been trying to keep up but he'd really rather stay home.

I am available by e-mail or phone so contact me when you want to walk, a buddy for a workout, or just chat.

I'll start a new a new post thread if/when I get new information regarding the walks.

BTW... is there a better day or time for a group get together? I'm open for suggestions. For early birds, we can walk the mall anytime after 6am -- I would be available on the weekends.

Be blessed and remember to do SOMETHING for yourself.

Slow and steady wins the race!

3:30 doesn't work for me coming from Roseburg, so what I will do is post here when I am coming down and we can set a time to meet. I know Cheryl personally, but I really want to meet everyone else!

Hi everyone! I have been having some issues with my foot and will be taking a break from my walking routine to try to rest it enough to heal. (Erin, I sent you a sparkmail with more detail). Anyway, I will let you all know when I'm ready to get back to it! For now, I'm doing some upper body strength training and yoga :)

Welcome back everyone. Seems we've all been busy with life plans or life interruptions. Glad to see most of you are ready for the walking again.

Weather report for Thursday June 5th is 87degrees and sunny with winds around 11 miles per hour.

LOCATION:
Since the High temps can be tough on some folks -- I will recommend us meeting at the Rogue Valley Mall. Inside the entrance near Starbucks and Kohls upper level. There is seating in the main entrance walk area and in front of Kohls.

TIME:
I will be there at 3:30 to start the first round. It generally takes about 6-10 minutes per round and I will always come back to the meeting area entrance of Kohls upper level. If you get there late, just wait and I will be there to get you shortly 8)

New comers may recognize me from my pictures or by my ORANGE water bottle/sipper.

If I know I have late arrivals from GP, etc., I can stay for a late shift to get an hour of walking from 4:30 - 5:30.

Please let me know, in advance, if you want to walk the later session so I can make transportation arrangements. I am also willing to walk with you on other days and times by appointment. Thank you.




Slow and steady wins the race!

And, I haven't been online much, either.

I told Erin I might go to Medford for this Thursday's walk.
(There's a slight chance we might go camping Thursday, if not Friday.)

But, if not and I go to Medford you are welcome to join me!

I agree. I don't care for this new format, either! emoticon

emoticon Good Morning Everyone
I don't really know where to post on this site any more, the daily chat seems to have gone away due to lack of interest. I really don't like the new team page format much, everyone seems to be posting on the wall instead of chatting, it seems less personal with no way to interact with each other.

I've been MIA for awhile now but decided I need to work on making a comeback. I don't like posting unless I can be positive, I've never really wanted to be a negative person so I decided it was best if I just stayed away for awhile. Maybe I'll work on a blog today, too much to say in a chat post.

OOPS!!! emoticon No excuse, but I buried myself in a gargantuan weed patch and absolutely lost track of time/day/you name it. I would have bet anyone that yesterday was Monday. For that matter, today's still Monday and I'll be out there again! Slow but steady she goes!

Have a wonderful trip, Erin! Enjoy!!!

Have a grand day, Everyone!

Don't quit moving just cuz the group ain't walking.

Hey Team!

I was in Portland for work this week.

I'll get back to walking next week, but might get to Medford only a couple of
times a month due to gas prices going UP! ugh

Gosh, Michelle, sorry about the foot. Wishing you a fast recovery!

Have a fun, safe w/end, everyone!

Giving thanks this Memorial Day for those that gave all so we may live
in the land of the free and the home of the brave! emoticon

Btw, thanks for your service, Erin! emoticon

Sorry for the confusion, Erin! I posted here early in the morning before I went to work and was planning on getting together. But after a day on my feet, I realize I better rest this foot. I am praying it's not plantar fasciitis, but that's what my symptoms are like :(

Thursday's walk in the Park is going to be cancelled this week. I'm still not feeling 100% and I want to be well enough for the COLOR RUN.

Michele, I hope we can get together next week. Have fun with the HUBBY!

Hey team!

I'll be there depending on how heavy the rain is.
It was too stressful fighting the 5 and semi trucks in that heavy rain last time!

I'll call you when I get off work at 3:30.

Thursday in Medford has a bit of rain in the forecast. Be prepared to walk at the Mall. We can meet on the lower level. Main entrance 3 across from Macy's home store.

Cheryl, I know you can't be there until after 4 so I will be waiting/looking for you.

Michele, I can still meet with you around 3:30 if you want to get an early start.

Hope to see you there!

Slow and steady wins the race!

I'll be at Bear Creek Park (playground/restroom area) at 3:30 for those that can't travel to Grants Pass on Tuesday. If members need to meet me later, please let me know and I'll wait for you.

From what I see on the weather forcast we should be good to walk at Bear Creek Park on Thursday as well. I start walking the park around 3:30 until the Grants Pass folks can arrive (around 4:15 or so) and then we take to the trails.


See you then.

Slow and steady wins the race!

Omgosh! It was wonderful! Great acting!
I was moved to tears about 3 times!

I've just been watching Color Run videos! ha...from my couch! emoticon

I walked 5 miles on the Bear Creek Trail with the HUSBAND!!!! He's willing to step up so I don't have to walk alone -- but he won't be a REGULAR 8)

Glad to hear you and Carolyn had fun.

I can be at the Park around 3:30 or so -- Need to empty and refill my water 8) and I have a shirt to give Michele yet -- we can walk circles until you get there if Michele wants to meet early. We will for sure meet up with you around 4:15 at the playground area.

For any new takers: Thursdays walk will start at Bear Creek Park. We meet near the restrooms at the playground area. We generally start at mile marker 20.25 and walk towards Talent on the trail.... don't be shy we can go the distance with all parties. We've walked 1, 3, 4, 5 and 8 miles on the trail so EVERYONE is welcome to join us. We can always modify our walk area and time to accomodate your individual needs.

See ya there!!!!

Slow and steady wins the race!

I hope things change and she can come back soon!

Erin, I plan to be at Bear Park by 4:15 tomorrow!

Wecome back, Cheryl. I'm glad you were able to pull it off with success!

I haven't seen Steph since the 17th. Steph contacted me on the 24th to say she could no longer participate in our weekly walks. That is what brought on the travel trouble for me. I'm not privy to details. I just know she will be missed. She did mention that she would continue training for the Color Run, so I can only hope she will be able to participate.

I will post my schedule (MALL or Bear Creek Park) prior to leaving for the day. The weather can change quickly, but we can always rely on: FAIR weather Park, FOUL weather Mall. I can be there by 3:30 for early arrivers and stay as late as 5:30 or 6:00 for the later ones. Your schedule is just fine for me -- lets me get some moving in before you get there 8)

I hope we both get a little more in the way of interested parties. I hate walking by myself -- WAHHHHHHHHHHH emoticon I want my Steph back!!!

See ya later this week.

Slow and steady wins the race!

Hey Team! I'm back! The surprise party was a great success! The weather even cooperated!
i'm glad it's over...whew...a lot of work and a lot of stress! lol

That's ok, Erin, we don't want our efforts to become like a job. All we can do is all we can do... juggling jobs and family is not always easy!

So, I'm gonna stay in GP on Tuesdays, hopefully finding some interest from members here.
I will still plan on going to Medford on Thursdays (most weeks) and meet up with you all there! Unless, I'm too late for you. I can't leave GP earlier than 3:45. So, let me know!

Let's just keep posting our walking whereabouts so maybe others will join us!

What's the latest with Steph?
Are you still coming to GP or staying in Medford?

The Color Run is just around the corner!! Yippee!

Cheryl,

It appears that I may not be doing much in the way of joining you in Grant's Pass. I will continue to walk in Medford but I don't know that I will be able to make it out your way without putting the rest of my family in a bind right now.

If you ever want to make it down our way on a Tuesday -- I'll walk with you. Thursdays can remain the Medford walk. I hope you will continue to come down for those so I can keep up with your doings.

TTFN. I hope you had a great weekend...I hope you were able to stay dry.

It's pretty chilly and cloudy so far~it looks like it might be safer to do the mall. Where do you usually start? I can be there at 3:30 to meet you.

The weather is supposed to be questionable all day today from the forcast. As previously noted -- fair weather Park, foul weather Mall. We may not know until much later today what the weather is really going to be like. I have Michele's number and she is close to the park so I suggest we call just before the meet to decide where -- only cuz I'd really rather be outside if I have a chance (selfish, I know). Or we can just play it safe and go to the Mall!

I'm in for whatever is decided!

Slow and steady wins the race!

Hi Ladies! I am planning on joining you today for the walk, so let me know for sure the time and place. I assume 3:30 at the park if not raining and the mall if raining, but I will be wherever you tell me to :)
See you later today,
Michele
P.S. Sorry I haven't been online to check in lately, but I am still here!

Hey, Erin! I'll be there to pick you up! Not to worry! Back in the pink!!! I'm sure you know by now that Cheryl is buried with last minute details of the surprise party so we are on our own. Do you know yet if Michele can make it? I haven't seen any posts from her this week so far (which doesn't mean a thing because I can go blind without notice:).

See you soon!

Steph

Steph, I don't know about Cheryl, but you and I can still walk at the Mall at our usual time. If you don't feel comfortable driving then e-mail me your address and David and I can pick you up (my DH loves to chauffer). You may also want to consider texting Cheryl with "Bad weather, MALL??" since she isn't able to call till much later. If you still haven't had lessons on texting then call and leave her a message cuz she can always text back 8)

Cheryl, I know you mentioned not coming in bad weather -- so if you decide to stay North I'm okay with that! Let us know what you decide by calling/texting us before you leave.

I may have to break down and get a phone myself if this keeps up 8D

Slow and steady wins the race!

Okay Gang ... it's raining pretty good right now .... weather reports are still threatening mixed snow/rain today, tonight and possibly into tomorrow morning. From Medford we drive uphill more than downhill ... I'm a chicken ... Irene knows it ... we need options????? (at least I do:)
I wouldn't be comfortable asking Cheryl to make another trip downhill either.

Let me know.?. Please.?.

Last night's walk went well. Lots of giggles and girl talk but we did miss having Michele with us. We hope to see her next week.

Saturday at 7am -- Steph and I will be at the walking at the Rouge Valley Mall . Feel free to join us. We generally walk for an hour -- or two 8)

Next Tuesday's walk is being scheduled for a 4:00 meet at Applegate Trail Rest Area - Rogue Valley Park Exit. If the weather is foul we will be in Medford at the Mall. More details to follow as the day get closer.

Slow and steady wins the race!

The weather is kinda yucky here.... a slow drizzle but wet none the less. I suggest a Rogue Valley mall walk.

Lower level, door 3 -- opposite Macy's home store entrance. We will catch up with you whether you get there by 3:30 or 4:30.

Carolyn -- thanks for the tour last night. I look forward to seeing the pictures for our lastest team post.

Michele -- I have your shirt ready for delivery on Thursday at Bear Creek Park (weather permitting -- if not see you at the mall) . We can meet around 3:30 and walk around some until Cheryl can get there around 4:30 or so. Does that sound good to you????

Steph -- you up for some extra walking!?!?! If you are, I'll see you about 3:15 or so. If not, I can have David drive me for the early walk -- or better yet I can walk to the park too!!!

Cheryl -- we will see you tomorrow! We will text you before we head out to let you know for sure where we will be -- park / mall !!

WOO HOO and a happy Wednesday to ya'll!

Slow and steady wins the race!

Hi,
I just got home from the dentist, while I was gone someone stole the balloons off of our mailbox. Sorry, I thought that would have been a good way to find my driveway. Count the guardrails instead - I just sent everyone an email with reminder directions. See you later.

Looking forward to seeing you all again tomorrow. I left the balloons on our mailbox from our housewarming party on Saturday to help you locate our driveway. According to another customer at The Dollar Tree, "They'll stay inflated for MONTHS!"

Steph loaded the shirts for Tuesday's GP walk. Carolyn and Cheryl will get the first honors -- if Steph doesn't beat them too it by wearing hers that day 8)

I will have to remember to take Michele's to the Park on Thursday.

Thank you Michele for the awesome PHOTO SHOOT!

Kudos to Steph for helping me IRON and walking with me as well!

Slow and steady wins the race!

Hey everyone, there was a bit of discussion last night about the location of future walks. So that no one has to go out of town everytime and we can be a bit more consistent on times and locations for our new coming members, we thought Tuesdays in GP and Thursdays in Medford.

Medford walks would be at Bear Creek Park on fair weather days and Rogue Valley Mall on foul weather days.

GP days can be at any location Cheryl chooses since she is a regular and knows the area -- track is a nice option as was Applegate Trail. We can walk with Carolyn on those days also.

I don't know if you want to use Rogue Valley Mall as the GP foul weather location or if there is a better location in GP. Please let us know.

Have a great weekend everyone.... see ya'll on Tuesday!!!!

Cheryl, once you get off the interstate you should be on HIGHLAND. Take that to the ROUNDABOUT and follow it around 3/4 to go between the store and the fire dept portion of Siskiyou. There is only one parking log on that side and lots of free side street parking. You can see the playground area from either of them.


Michele, hopefully you will be able to join us. If Steph can't make it by 3:30 then I still can. I never mind putting in extra steps for the day and we can always walk circles until the others get there 8)

Steph, what time did you want to get together????

Everyone..... if you can give Cheryl better directions, PLEASE do!!! thank yo 8)

Slow and steady wins the race!

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome! Hubby's plane gets in around 12 and if I know him, he will want to get out on the golf course this afternoon, so I'm hoping that's the case and I can join you for walking. I will meet you there at 3:30 if I can make it~I have Erin's number, so I will call if not coming so you don't wait for me. Bear Creek Park is very near where I live, so I won't have a problem finding you by the playground area.

Hi, Michele! emoticon to the Team! Erin & I usually leave around 3:30. We can all drive together if you don't mind my little VW bug. We'd love to have you whenever you can make it.

Thank you for the invite! I will try to make it, but hubby is flying home from a business trip tomorrow and I have to pick him up from the airport. Not sure what time yet. If I can't make it this week, I will most likely be able to make it next Thurs.

Walk in Medford on Thursday April 10. Bear Creek Park.

I'm horrible with directions so here are some web addresses for you to look at. You will find us on the Siskiyou Blvd side of the park near the playground.

Cheryl -- Steph and I can always meet early and get some extra steps in so we go slower when you get there ;) We can meet you around 4:15 -- you have our numbers so call when you get there.

Steph -- I'm game for meeting at our normal time (3:30) a few extra steps never hurt me 8)

Michele -- you are welcome to join us. You have my number if you have questions or need to find us.

Hi Cheryl!

I guess we've all spaced the details. How about we meet in GP ... same time ... same place? At the school track.?. Holler if you want to change it. (I'm thinking we may get Becky interested in the team???)....(her name WAS Becky, right?:) jeese

Your Brilliant Friend,

I'm okay during the week, but weekends are tougher for me to get 10000 in. Even the walk with the kids didn't rack it up for me.

Our days with the girls really get me over the hump!! I generally get between 10000 and 20000 on those days.


How about we plan on walking with Carolyn on next Tuesday, April 14th. I asked her to e-mail address and directions to all of us, just in case.

And we may have a new walker among us on Thursdays! Michele has asked about our walks so I promised to keep her informed.

TTFN

Slow and steady wins the race!

Yeah, but Erin, WE ARE A FANTASTIC TEAM which means we can aim for 10,000 STEPS (I almost had a heart attack when "miles" was mentioned) and MAKE IT most of the time. Right? Think positive! Stay active! Get Fittive!!!!! (couldn't think of a 'correct' word on that one:)

UMMMM... girls, I hate to burst your bubble but I'm sure you didn't put in 10000 MILES... steps probably... However in order to make you feel better about it -- the average person these days is barely doing 2000 steps with all the desk jobs and such the ones they claim are doing 3000-5000 a day are from people who are on their feet all day. I do about 10000 steps a day with 30-40 minutes of speed-walking during lunch and some walking through out the day. On weekends it's another story -- unless I put in an hour or more of jogging my daily routine registers about 5000. Here's some other information I found -- Don't beat yourselves up -- acknowledge that you are doing a wonderful thing by moving at all !!!

Many people view 10,000 steps a day as too few for children, yet not achievable by many who are aged, sedentary, or who have chronic diseases. Some suggest instead of using a blanket 10,000 steps per day that instead the goal be based on the individual's baseline plus an increment of steps. For example, a woman who wears a pedometer in her ordinary activities notes that she logs 4000 steps per day. Her goal should be to add the equivalent of a half hour of walking to her day, for example 2000-3000 more steps per day.

New Goals

Based on the best evidence as of the end of 2003, Dr. Catrine Tudor-Locke recommends the following:

Classification of pedometer-determined physical activity in healthy adults:

1) Under 5000 steps/day may be used as a "sedentary lifestyle index"
2) 5,000-7,499 steps/day is typical of daily activity excluding sports/exercise and might be considered "low active."
3) 7,500-9,999 likely includes some exercise or walking (and/or a job that requires more walking) and might be considered "somewhat active."
4) 10,000 steps/day indicates the point that should be used to classify individuals as "active".
5) Individuals who take more than 12,500 steps/day are likely to be classified as "highly active".

Have you ever tried a Neti-Pot? That works for me when the sinuses get ready bad.
Just make sure you ALWAYS use distilled water!

It never did rain in GP yesterday! But, I think I hear some now. A day late and a dollar short! emoticon

Steph, right now its a matter of where you go I shall follow -- along for the ride anyhow 8)

GP sounds ok for me... it was a good walk yesterday. Even the bit of sidewalk we hit wasn't to harsh on me. WOO HOO!

Slow and steady wins the race!

All of our streams were dead so I'm waking them all up again. So, weather permitting, we'll meet in Grants Pass, right? Same time Same place? It was really lovely yesterday! Until we hit Medford, that is ... man oh man we had water everywhere! Major heavy rains.

Have a wonderful day, Everyone!

Cheryl -- we know what you look like... you stay at a mall entrance (not a store entrance) and we should walk past you (as long as you are on the lower lever 8)

Door #3 is a main entrance and you can see the #3 on it and the Macy's homestore when you walk in (whose main store entrance is on the other side of the mall).

hope that helps!


Steph -- I will be ready early if you want to get a bit of walking in before hand. - just give me a pick-up time 8)

TTFN

Slow and steady wins the race!
