It can slow down now, really

Sunday, December 07, 2014      1 comments

I keep saying that after this or that things are going to slow down. I hope its really true this time! Had a special event at work every day last week. Then we had our preschool holiday program on Thursday, my son's college Christmas progra... Read more

Introverted distance jogger :-)

Sunday, November 30, 2014      3 comments

Yesterday I was out on a short errand in the car and caught an NPR program that I found interesting. The author of a book was discussing introverts vs extroverts and the tendencies of each. As I tuned in, they were discussing some fun litt... Read more

Feeling like i am getting back into the groove quickly with exercising and eating. Had a pretty crazy week at work--lots of unexpected stresses--but having my evenngs and weekend back made a huge difference. i ate well, exercised and slept adeq... Read more

Band season over, and I am back!

Sunday, November 16, 2014      3 comments

It has been almost a month since I last did my "weekly" blog. I have a son in marching band, and for the past month we have been at regional rather than local competitions, which took up my Saturdays from about 5 am until often 1 or 2 am on... Read more

Did 10 miles ... In two parts

Sunday, September 21, 2014      1 comments

OOPS ... PHOTOS NOT LOADING ... WILL TRY TO ADD THEM LATER! Wanted to add some diatance today, but am hoping to get a 10k race in next weekend (if the family schedule cooperates). So today I jogged just short of 7 miles, then hit pause. I t... Read more

Picking up the pace with cooler temps

Sunday, September 14, 2014      2 comments

The weather suddenly turned back to fall again for the past few days, and bam, I suddenly felt so much stronger and more energized on my runs! Had a good run Thursday night after a few short and slow runs for the previous week. I know some... Read more

Struggling for time and motivation

Wednesday, September 10, 2014      2 comments

I have been absent from Spark People for a couple of weeks. Things are OK, just very busy. I am trying to keep up on my health and fitness goals, but it is a struggle. Not getting enough exercise, not eating as well as I should, and not get... Read more

Made it through my first half :-)

Sunday, August 24, 2014      4 comments

I made it! Our cool week of cool fall weather turned first into major rain storms on Friday and then into hot and humid weather by Saturday. So glad for that 6:30 am start! Still it was tough. The hills were not as steep as those I've been... Read more

Beautiful weather, and a week from my half marathon

Sunday, August 17, 2014      0 comments

Love summer, but boy, the dip into fall temperatures this week has been quite a treat! I have been doing breakfast and my evening reading/writing out on our deck under the trees. This is because when I let our two dogs out to the back yard,... Read more

Ready for my half marathon!

Yesterday I did my last long run before my first half-marathon race, which is two weeks away (August 23). Made it 15 miles with lots of hills and felt good all the way. Yay! So I know I will be able to do the 13 miles without much troubl... Read more

500 miles since last July

Sunday, August 03, 2014      3 comments

According to the phone app that I use to track my run miles, last week I hit exactly 500 miles at the end of July. I started tracking in July of 2013. Amazing how all those miles add up! Of course it's not completely accurate, because I don... Read more

Made the hills, but not the distance

Sunday, July 27, 2014      4 comments

On yesterday's long run, I tried to combine both hills and distance. I powered through the first three sets of hills feeling strong, then had a bit of flat to rest up. But when I hit the last set of hills, smaller compared to what I'd already do... Read more

Be the tortoise

I always do my weekly blog on Sundays, but yesterday my internet connection was not cooperating, and I decided it was a sign that I should go to bed early. Which felt good, so I was glad I did. Had a really busy week with lots of things goi... Read more

15 miles today!

Sunday, July 13, 2014      5 comments

And it actually felt good, especially the getting done part :-) From the feedback of several people on the Jeff Galloway Training for any Length Race Team, I bought and used a GymBoss interval timer for the first time today. Loved it! So mu... Read more

I'm in no hurry ...

Sunday, July 06, 2014      3 comments

The other day I was contemplating that I am almost to my three year Spark anniversary, and probably should be frustrated that I have not quite met my goal weight. Been hovering just above it for quite a while now. But I'm not. In fact, I sort o... Read more
