Guess I have lapsed into the jargon phase

Sunday, April 26, 2015      12 comments

The fact that I ended up defining what "taper" was for two different folks yesterday, and also got a comment or two on yesterday's blog, I figure it's a good day to reflect on the journey, and maybe explain some of the terms that have triggered ... Read more

Saved by a fellow runner!

Saturday, April 25, 2015      13 comments

One of the reasons one joins a training group (even if it is outside one's comfort zone to join groups) is to make contact with other runners who may train at a similar pace. This morning was supposed to be a group run at 7 a.m. but when I woke... Read more

Strange dreams when sleeping in

Friday, April 24, 2015      21 comments

Some of my strangest dreams come while sleeping in. This morning, knowing I'd been at a deficit for a while, I went back to bed after taking my thyroid pill, and slept well. This resulted in another such really strange dream, combining element... Read more

Miscellaneous bits... day 2 of recovering from chaos

Wednesday, April 22, 2015      27 comments

The new sweet potato deal: Weigh your portion size, dice up the sweet potato and put it on a microwave safe plate, in a pile that can be completely covered by a bowl that fits on the plate. Once you put the bowl on top, it looks like this:... Read more

Recovering from the chaos

Tuesday, April 21, 2015      22 comments

Yesterday I blogged twice, processing the weekend that was. And I napped on the couch to old MASH episodes on Netflix. Left the house late in the day to pick up some Terro ant bait stations... see? I learn new things every time my brother vis... Read more

Bonus blog: The sisterhood of the traveling dress

Monday, April 20, 2015      20 comments

Subtitled - making the most of our purchases! My maintenance Advantage response card should have this one on it: I can reach into my closet and find something that fits! Saturday's need to be a little more "dressy" than usual was a chal... Read more

It's a progressive disease?

Monday, April 20, 2015      23 comments

If becoming motivated and realistic about what it takes to care for our one and only issued body for a lifetime were a "disease", I would have to say it's a progressive and contagious one. I re-iterate the photographic evidence from yesterday, ... Read more

Bonus blog: we also dress down kinda ok

Sunday, April 19, 2015      12 comments

Today my house started out quiet, with Kevin heading out to run and me going to visit Chloe Jones (the swimming pool, for those of you who aren't in on the naming games, named so because we got a "thang" goin' on)... But things started gett... Read more

Guest Runner and we clean up pretty good

Sunday, April 19, 2015      30 comments

You asked for photos, so I made sure to get a few. The first is from about 7 a.m. yesterday, at the Red Dirt Running Company store, where my marathon/half marathon training group is centered. One of the gals who runs was kind enough to click t... Read more

Just a quick one this morning

Saturday, April 18, 2015      23 comments

MOBYCARP and his daughter arrived safely, and we went grocery shopping so I have ENOUGH in the house of the right fuel for our marathoner in training. Since he eats pretty similarly to how I do when I'm cooking for myself, we've been swapping t... Read more

And retirees... on their way to be donated

Friday, April 17, 2015      21 comments

I sometimes quip that I am the Imelda Marcos of running shoes. But the closet in my house is not as big as at the presidential palace in the Philippines. So a few of my ... Read more

New Recruits

Wednesday, April 15, 2015      30 comments

Frank, meet Frank. One of my little old lady whimsy habits is to name my gear. Last Summer when I did my first Olympic Tri, I decided I'd call my running shoes all "Frank... Read more

Springboard to 12 miles

Monday, April 13, 2015      27 comments

The motivation and enthusiasm from Sunday morning's volunteer gig converted into a desire to run for myself. I had played hooky from the Saturday morning group run, feeling a need to avoid people. I knew this week would have PLENTY of people, ... Read more

When in need of motivation - volunteer!

Sunday, April 12, 2015      25 comments

This morning's "uniform"... I volunteered for the second day of the Double Half Mary. And I finally "get" why it was scheduled 3 weeks out from the Lincoln Marathon... if yo... Read more

Contentment

Thursday, April 09, 2015      33 comments

Contentment is not the same as complacency. Take "content" and move it into something that sounds like it in Spanish or Italian (contento), translate back, and it comes out "happy". Cue the old joke about translating: "The spirit is willing b... Read more
