    Yay! I'm so excited about this! I will happily pre-order, but I can wait a while. I'm training for my first marathon, and my (novice) schedule doesn't allow hard non-running workouts. So, I can wait til after October!! :-) Of course, if they're out before then, I'll happily preview them...

    Cathe- why are your tapes gone from Collage?

    RE: Cathe, I admire your decision Laura, I was also scared to order a Cathe tape from Collage for at least a year, because of their descriptions but I finally had to, because I wanted a step tape that was longer than 30 minutes and I was disappointed with the one CIA I had ordered from Collage...

    CTX 2 suggestions

    I also like the CTX because the tapes are so short! For some reason, it's easier to find 47 minutes to exercise than an hour! (I do have some longer tapes which I enjoy when I have more time.) For CTX 2, I'd like to see: An upper body strength tape ala Leaner Legs A power circuit tape that...

    Need advice please

    RE: Welcome Kelley!! Hi! I have MIC and it is pretty tough. The Step section is typical Cathe and I love it, but the hi-lo is very hi. I still haven't been able to do the whole tape all the way through! (But then, I've had a setback year, so it'll take a lot more work to be able to do that...

    New to the forums!

    Running My last real distance run was the 15K Anchor to Anchor run at Lajes. I'm not sure if they ran it any more after 1992, because that's when the Navy left Lajes. I stopped in Italy because it wasn't safe, and then in Germany, I had a newborn and my husband was always TDY. Texas was too...

    New to the forums!

    Hi Beverly! Hi! I've been stationed at the Azores twice, as a kid in 80-83 and then as an airman in 91-93. I loved it there, that's where I took up running! Anyway, welcome, and I'm so jealous you got Utah. We tried to get Utah and got a remote base in Texas instead, so we ended up getting...

    Question about buying barbells.

    Hi Lora! My EZ Curl bar is about 4 and a half feet long. I've only been doing Cathe's strength work for less than a year off and on (I was in a slump). But, I read a response in another thread (Biceps with barbell) where Cathe recommends a straight barbell, so I'd say if you have a chance to...

    Question about buying barbells.

    EZ Curl Hi, Lora. I just finished a week of CTX using an EZ Curl bar instead of a straight barbell and it seems to work just fine for me. (I also use it in whichever Firm tapes require a barbell.) I think I remember seeing that Cathe doesn't recommend the curl bar for some of the exercises...

    Separated Abs

    My experience Hi! A year after I had my baby (via C-section) my abs were still at least two fingers separated, but they eventually did grow back together. I can't remember when, but it was between my son's first and second birthdays. I was doing abwork with the Firm from about 6 months on...
