Blaming it on the watch band
I have a Timex Ironman ladies' digital watch. I've had it for years... probably 10 years or more. I think it's on its second battery now. But finally, the plastic band has cracked, it's pinching my wrist, and I need to replace something: the... Read more
Updates on the loose ends
Yesterday, after doing my three days of sports training, my body was saying "time for a rest day", so I let it be an extra rest day. Because today is a rest day, too, based on having my Jenny Craig food pick up after work. Tomorrow after work ... Read more
Day three of the three sport holiday weekend: the first brick of the season
This morning I was not about to give in to the minor aches & twinges because it was the best weather weekend day to be outdoor active. I pumped up Sophia Silque Trek's tires while the steel cut oats were simmering. Filled the camel back and th... Read more
Day two of the three sport weekend
Today I ran because my brother ran. In case ANYBODY missed it, he ran his first full marathon and I'll let him blog about the experience for himself. When I ran today, I didn't run anywhere near as far as he did, nor as fast, but something abo... Read more
Three day weekend equals three sport weekend
Swam this morning... enjoyed it immensely. Swimming still remains the most wonderful combination of exercise and massage... probably because I'm a leisurely swimmer. I will have to pick it up a bit for the race day, come August, and I have tim... Read more
The Boy Wonder comes through
Appointment number two with the Boy Wonder was yesterday evening. He came and found me on the elliptical, all warmed up, and we went right to it. He continues to get the leg weights right, was a little light on the upper body ones... so we bum... Read more
The next six weeks - the experiment of one
The human body is an incredibly complex place to live. The human psyche even more so. And they influence one another... coming up with YOU or ME... our identity.
Each of us as individuals has specific physical, emotional, mental, chemical... Read more
I think the kid wants to best his mom
Got a phone call last night as I was getting ready for bed. The mythical son. Said he thought he might have overdone it. He was feeling so good during his run last night that he kept going, rather than turning back when he was supposed to. E... Read more
I noticed in yesterday's comments a lot of "hope I didn't offend", "it wasn't intended as advice"... sorry about that. Yesterday's blog must have come on a bit strong. No, I'm not offended when people offer what they have to offer... just obse... Read more
Always amazed by the number of "fixers" among us
Ever notice when you blog a vent you get a whole lot of comments telling you how to fix your perceived problem. LOTS of advice. Some conflicting with other advice. If you don't want to hear the reaction, don't post about it, right? Which is ... Read more
The paralysis of indecision
Yesterday started out "woozy", and ended with my skipping the Wear Yellow Ride, even though my bike had been pre-packed in the car the night before. I didn't figure that feeling the way I did it would be safe to go on that ride.
Which in t... Read more
The super hero(ine) meets the boy wonder
Facing this little "crisis of motivation" I decided to go to a classic strategy. I bought a set of sessions with a personal trainer. He came highly recommended by a gal I trust.
Up until now, I'd always gone for fellow women as my trainer... Read more
Pushing back against the push-back...
A week and a half ago, I ran my fastest half marathon ever. And crossed the finish line. And physically recovered. BUT...
There is something in my personality that struggles. Struggles with the images of success, especially. Struggles ... Read more
Recovery from race is pretty much in the books
Now it's time to think about August 8th. Some folks asked what my next "epic" adventure was going to be... many long-term readers already know. On August 8th, I'll be competing in the National Age Group Olympic distance triathlon.
The Oly... Read more
Missed my Spark start Anniversary
I do this every year... I'm generally so busy in May that it slides by unnoticed. May 2, 2008, according to Spark's reckoning, I joined Sparkpeople.com. I lost a weekend in the richness of the site, then fled in terror of how big it was!
