almost too hot
got out this morning at 6:30 and it was already 81. The dogs and I did our run complete with iced coffee. Got back and was truly wiped. I'm thinking, as much as I love jogging with java, maybe I need to jog with rehydration drink and save the ca... Read more
making this day count
some times it seems like just putting it in words on a screen will help me focus. I've lost my focus again, again, again. I guess the good thing is that I still get up, get moving, run, work, etc. To track to track to track. My MPT has been stuf... Read more

running in the heat
I've traded my morning hot for iced coffee on the run. Still, I'm thinking I need more fluids. Don't really have a way to carry more although I could stick a bottle of water in my jogging shorts pocket. I also wonder if there is a way to know h... Read more

Being healthy is a gift we can give, at least in part, to ourselves. I'm giving me this gift one day at a time. Part of gifting is regular c... Read more

most powerful tool
Last post I was whining about counting and Kriszta replied that tracking was the most powerful tool and the best friend. As I ran yesterday morning that thought really solidified in my mind A tool doesn't work unless it is used. It is like a swo... Read more

Back to the usual run/walk, then I re-tied the tomatoes (they had grown so much) and hauled 3 wheelbarrows of mulch for the roses and the vegetable beds. Whew! Stinky hot and sweaty. So glad I got it all done before the rains came. Rested then h... Read more
