Food is Fuel. And that's it.

Sunday, May 01, 2016      8 comments

Today when I was reading some tips on nutrition by a world class athlete, she said this: "Food is fuel, and if we put in premium our bodies will perform and feel better." And of course it really IS that simple. And yet of course it's not. Be... Read more

Conquered it today!

Today I did the same 6 mile jog that I did last week. And it felt totally different. Last weekend I dragged my butt through, stalling within the fir... Read more

Six miles. In three legs.

So today I decided to go for distance and hills, and it suddenly turned hot (from 30s to 90s in a few days). Went for a long dog walk this morning with... Read more

Was that really a weekend?

Sunday, April 10, 2016      4 comments

I feel like I missed it somehow now that it is practically bedtime on Sunday night. Last week I took a couple of days off to hang out with my high school son while he was on spring break. Did a couple of road trips (which he drove since he is p... Read more

Blast of Winter (in the face)!

Sunday, April 03, 2016      4 comments

Had a 12 mile run yesterday, and whew!, what a blast of winter we had for it. The morning was sunny and 40. Unfortunately the race started at 11 am, an... Read more

15 miles, thanks to funny people and the quest for a potty break

Sunday, March 20, 2016      4 comments

It wasn't meant to be a 15 mile run today, and I suspect I might regret it tomorrow. But it was a beautiful, sunny, but perfectly chilly day for a long run. And well, the honest truth is that my biggest motivation was that the only avail... Read more

Rainy day run and much needed alone time

Sunday, March 13, 2016      6 comments

Today I had planned to go the Y with my husband but I woke up just not excited about it. I was a bit achy from yesterday's 5k and the bike/swim I did on Friday, but not enough to keep me from going. But I just kept thinking how the Y would be c... Read more

None of it is easy - for anyone

Monday, March 07, 2016      9 comments

The other day I mentioned that I had been to the pool before work and someone going by said, "Oh I wish I could do pool workouts! But I just can't swim laps." I laughed and explained, "Oh, I can't swim. Its been my project for a couple of mon... Read more

Made the Most of a Beautiful Weekend!

Sunday, February 28, 2016      2 comments

The week began with snow, ice and sleet and finished with a sunny weekend at 70 degrees! It was breezy but so beautiful! I go so much exercise in and I'm beat, but wanted to do quick blog before I go to bed. Felt good about my fitness thi... Read more

A beautiful birthday weekend

Sunday, February 21, 2016      4 comments

It's so wonderful to get a breath of spring in the middle of February! Last weekend was a very chilly and windy single digit temp--this weekend was in the 50s, bright and sunny. Wow! What a treat. Friday was my birthday and I received som... Read more

Getting out in the bluster

Sunday, February 14, 2016      4 comments

A cold weekend here. Not colder than the norm for February, but since we have had warmer than usual temps, it is kind of a shock to the system. But I didn't let it stop me! Bundled up in extra layers and got on out there. On Saturday morn... Read more

Did it!

Sunday, February 07, 2016      4 comments

Last week I meant to finish my Tri challenge. Not a "real" triathlon but a challenge at our local Y to complete the swim, run and bike distances of a Tri within 7 weeks. Only it didn't happen last week. Had to work late on Friday and missed ... Read more

Not surprised to find it's all in the breath

Sunday, January 24, 2016      3 comments

So I've been working on my swimming as part of my "triathlon" challenge. (Which I am kicking on, by the way--nearly done with the swimming and the running already!) Or, not really swimming, but working on the skills and building the stamina th... Read more

Anything can be done in baby steps

Sunday, January 17, 2016      3 comments

So this should be obvious to me by now. But sometimes I guess I'm just thick-headed and can't see the forest for the trees,or the water for the splash droplets. I have frequently splashed into the pool after a running workout (which I worked in... Read more

A sensory workout experience

Sunday, January 10, 2016      7 comments

I started my workout session today with a 5 mile outdoor run. I checked the weather last night and saw that it wasn't going to be friendly weather, but since my new swim and stationary bike workouts have to be done indoors, I was really looking ... Read more
