Bonus blog: For the shoulder-riders, State Farm 10 Mile

Saturday, March 28, 2015      15 comments

Let me introduce the State Farm 10 mile run. The Lincoln Track club considers it the "opening race" of a given year. In fact, there are three races run in this event: a one mile kids' run, a 10 mile prep race for those of us getting ready to ... Read more

Getting the energy back

Wednesday, March 25, 2015      27 comments

I forget who warned me that it would take about two weeks for my energy to come back after my recent bout with the flu... but the warning was in fact, prescient. I'm about on schedule. Fatigue, being sleepy during the day... making sure I ... Read more

Focus of the week: easing back into training

Monday, March 23, 2015      24 comments

After that 8 miles Saturday morning, I was exhausted Sunday. And I had non-exercise things that needed doing. Like laundry. Grocery trip. Taxes. Yeah, I'd been dragging my feet this year on that little chore. I found this box of hair... Read more

Sometimes questions get asked too soon...

Saturday, March 21, 2015      31 comments

Y'all know I've been participating in a half marathon training class. At the end of each run, I find that I get confronted with a question that I don't seem to be ready to answer: "how was your run?" Seriously, I just ran 8 miles. It wil... Read more

Back to health just in time for all the emoticon March Madness. I noted in my status that I did let the inner chil... Read more

Are we there yet?

Thursday, March 19, 2015      27 comments

Remember the kid kicking the back of the seat (before electronic gadgets entertained kids in cars) all through the family road trip, constantly asking "are we there yet?" That is the general inner attitude about training... "am I there yet?... Read more

When did I become this grumpy old lady?

Tuesday, March 17, 2015      33 comments

Last night my doorbell rang at 8 p.m. I was already brushing my teeth and getting ready for bed. I peeked through the curtain, spotting a young man with a clipboard. I opened the door, he started with the usual door to door guys, "Hello, ... Read more

Half a work day is better than none

Monday, March 16, 2015      26 comments

I made it through five hours. I bowed out before a meeting that would have been crowded and cramped and I really did NOT want to be sharing my cough in a small conference room... reviewed the material, passed my comments on to the coordinator, ... Read more

While I was missing in action... a couple of dates slipped by! For those of you who want an official name for the crud, sorry, did not go get it diagnosed, but I've pretty well convinced myself it was the "real flu" that's going around this... Read more

It's going around

Wednesday, March 11, 2015      30 comments

Saturday I stayed in my pj's all day and skipped my run and a planned bike ride not just because I was over-peopled. I also had a little headachy thing going on, and there's been this crud going around at work. In fact one of the gals I was su... Read more

Creeping forward

Tuesday, March 10, 2015      25 comments

My body, sleep cycle, and time sense are sluggishly adjusting to Spring. Which seems to be suddenly HERE! At least for a few days. Maybe for good, who knows? Much of this time confusion began even before my recent trip to Florida, which ... Read more
