    Not walking but...
    Pete invited me to chime in here. I am not walking as it is still too cold here in Maine, and the shoulders on our roads are a bit too narrow. I do bike with a bicycle set up on a magnetic resistance trainer though - averaging 10 miles a day. I did not do it when I was on the 3 day folfox/folfiri routine, but tried to do it on any non-chemo day. Now I will be on a new regimen of 2 oral drugs essentially every day - hope to keep up the biking though as I am in training for a big ride in June. I plan on doing the "Trek Across Maine" again this year as it was a great ride last year.

    I do feel much better and more energetic the more I exercise.

    like jesus said " the spirit is willing but the body is weak"
    thats my story for chemo day 1 and day 2. Did manage a little exercise, but we cannot discuss that on the forum. its not been a smooth day with forum dramas. I should disable my access on DEX days. I just love hearing about your exotic overseas destination. Oh places we can visit in our imagination.

    keep it up pepe. you inspire me. tom has joined us below. We are like Laurel and Hardy. You can be Laurel and I'll be hardy he was the really big guy. thats me.

    We can be the personal trainers and travel advisers for the forum. All for free. You cannot get better value.

    I hardly touched any food today and gut is about to implode. the joy of folfox. bottle off tomorrow and a barium enema.

    Keep up the walking if you can, until I am back on track and on the track. Hopefully tomorrow.

    hugs,

    Pete

    welcome to the walking post. I think we will rename it to the exercising post to make it more inclusive.

    Now we have a team for the bowel cancer triathalon.
    pepe can do the walk or run
    pete will do the swim
    tom can do the bike.

    what a team,

    Where do we want to go on the planet to do our triathalon ?
    how about Russia ?

    hugs,
    Pete

    hi shanna,

    I can see it in my eyes, what a wonderful dawn you had, thanks for sharing it.
    If you signup for the 100,000km challenge and i hope you do.
    here is the good news.

    you only got 99,990 kms to go.
    now at 10km per day its gonna take about 30 years..
    now I am just telling my little
    colorectal friend, he can have me after the walk. I won't tell him how long it is.
    With a bit of luck he will die inside me before I do.

    hugs!

    3 days off with this chemo
    Keep the exercise going shanna, I'll back on track tomorrow I hope, as long as my arse
    stops hurting and leaking. they never said it would be this much fun. I knew I was in for trouble when the lovely old nurse gave me this big nappy with a smile and said

    "just in case"

    the killer today is the barium enema, been leaking, in pain, oh the joys of treatment haha.

    hugs,

    Cranked out 12 miles yesterday
    Had to make up some for missing on Tuesday (spent most of it on a bus to Boston). Now dressed for another 12-15 today. I got some catch'in up to do if you are already in China. It is a bit muddy here, so I'm a bit slow.

    Hi Tom,

    The walking will calm the universe.

    how awesome, after I get some sleep I'll be up for a walk, my movements are pretty restricted due to bum trouble.
