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

Being a newbie again

Wednesday, January 06, 2016      5 comments

Went to Y pool early today to swim before work. Got there just after they opened at 5 am and was in the pool by 5:20. I swam one morning last week but I was on vacation (and so were lots of other folks) so the schedule wasn't important. Today... Read more

on to a new challenge

Sunday, December 27, 2015      5 comments

After several years and 35 pounds, I know that the success in weight loss and healthy habits lies in day-to-day actions. Eating right, tracking food, moving every day, drinking plenty of water, and being mindful of these actions every day, over... Read more

Gingerbread Man and Hallelujah Chorus

Sunday, December 13, 2015      3 comments

A great Christmas - y weekend even though the outdoor temp was in the 60s. So weird! Started off the weekend with the 4 mile Gingerbread Pursuit early Saturday morning. I was amazed with my time, but then realized the course was .08 mile ... Read more

Reassessing goals for the new year

Sunday, December 06, 2015      1 comments

I have never really been a new year's resolution person. But, since this year my sister-in-law got me into a team challenge for 2015 that I have just completed, here I am at the end of the year looking for a new focus. Last year I had a go... Read more

Other than log some bonus miles in December, of course! Yesterday I ran the final miles to complete my goal of 615 miles in 2015. Yay! This was my p... Read more

Back after band season

Sunday, November 22, 2015      4 comments

whew! First non-band Saturday in a long time! Mid -October through mid-November turns weekends into a blur as we are on the road for long days (as in wee hour of Saturday morning to the wee hours of Sunday morning). I have actually done pretty ... Read more

A great place to be--in control of myself

Sunday, October 18, 2015      3 comments

I haven't been checking in very regularly, but I am doing well. It's my busy season, and I haven't been logging in daily, but I am keeping up with my exercise plan. Less than 70 miles left in my goal to run 615 miles this year! I thought it woul... Read more

Yeah, I ran through that sprinkler!

Sunday, September 27, 2015      3 comments

I passed this sprinkler as I started out on my jog today. A few kids were there, and I heard one say, "Dude, hold my phone!" I smiled, thinking he's either too young for a phone or too old to play in sprinklers. Then I took a wrong turn on ... Read more

Got first place in my age group!

Sunday, September 13, 2015      3 comments

Ha ha. That's not quite as exciting as it sounds because I'm pretty sure I was the only participant in my age group who ran the 11k Defenders Dash yest... Read more

I have been jogging 12 miles per week consistently all year long. Yay! And despite having to be creative about fitting it into my schedule some weeks, it really has been fun! I know it has helped my mental and physical well being to get those m... Read more
