Contributorgold Victoria C Hi Ruth, how are you doing? I was at the games last year doing Archery, mini-marathon (I hated the blooming hill...lol) and the javelin. Unfortunately not going to be there this year now as I'm in a big Archery comp that week and BTG won't allow compound bows. I just don't have the time to re-train with a recurve.....maybe next year :-)

How have you found exercising since your tx? :-)

Oh that's a shame, but i hope you do well in your archery comp. I really enjoy exercising now, I used to run before but it was always hard work, now I've realised that I can push myself a bit more and I'm really seeing the benefits.

I did a bit of gym work before I got sick but really ate, slept and breathed working. I love exercising now but having to work on things like posture and muscles that have suffered from being immobile so long. It makes me smile everyday that I can now join in and do (or at least attempt to do...lol) the things I couldn't before :-)

It is a great feeling when you reach another new goal :-)

Contributorgold Ruth E Hi, I had a kidney transplant in 2008. I've competed in the Games since 2009, and hope to be there this year. I normally compete in 100m, the walk, the mini-marathon, and the relay. last year I added in the 1500m, and this year I'm considering dropping the 100m for a longer distance. How about you?
