Thursday, August 27, 2009      3 comments

Well when I was working out, I've had to stop because of an injury, several factors gave me motivation to continue: 1. How working out made me feel, a little happy, a little sore, a lot stronger, and pride for being able to accomplish s... Read more
Training Run # 13/No more running!
Friday, May 29, 2009      5 comments

Well, last Saturday I made the mistake of running and it has cost me. I am not prohibited from doing any type of cardio for a week and no running for two weeks per the instructions of my chiropractor. I'm lucky because it is only a 1st degree ... Read more
Training Run #12

Ran again yesterday. Don't worry, I took a day off in between runs and will take at least another 3 days off between this one and my first run next week. My achilles is still sore and my pedometer watch is still a little off. It recorded tha... Read more
Training Run #11

I ran on Monday and my achilles still hurt but other than that, the run wasn't too bad. I did get a little distracted because I was using my pedometer watch for the first time and forgot to set my timer so I couldn't really tell how fast I was ... Read more

Today is the day that I will start running again. I hope my achilles is feeling better and I think I will cut down on the amount of working out I do both the day of and the day after my runs. Wish me luck!... Read more

My 10th run, or about that, and I have to take a break :( My achilles is sore and swollen so I have to rest for a week. A week without running or other exercises that entail jumping around. I will try to ride my bike tonight and if that works... Read more
Training Run #9

I woke up to a beautiful Sunday so that was very helpful for the run. I was a little tight when I first started, a lot tight, and I don't know if it was because I started out too fast, wasn't warmed up enough or if it was the Cathe Friedrich DV... Read more

Because of the chance of rain, I got up early this morning and did my run. It felt good. The sun was out, it was just the right temperture and I was moving at a steady clip. I did two miles in great time and I even managed to get a quick 13 m... Read more
Training Run #7

Finally, no rain, well at least a break from the rain. My run was uneventful, I probably can push myself a bit more but I had a good run. The weather was ideal and I was not stressing about my time. Since I straightened myself out about the d... Read more
Training Run # 6
Friday, May 01, 2009      1 comments

So I Google mapped my runs and come to find out, I was a little off on my mileage, not a whole lot, but enough to "deflate" my times. It seems like I've been running closer to a 8:45 to 9:00 minute mile all along. That isn't really bad for som... Read more

Today was a little frustrating running. First, I was not sure of the total mileage of the run, and second, I really had a slow time. That really bothered me. I feel like I'm slowing down, not improving the more I train. It also makes me ques... Read more

When you think you can't go any farther, you can. I learned this last night as I was running 3 miles as part of my training for a 5K. It was really tough, my stomach was aching and I felt I had slowed down considerably while doing my last mile. ... Read more

No More Snacks!
Thursday, September 04, 2008      3 comments

Today is the first day of the rest of my life, well maybe not, but definitely the first day of not snacking until my stomach explodes. I have been caught in the snacking after lunch and after dinner rut and I need to get out of it. So starting... Read more

Well, everyone there is now "scientific" proof that the weekends are not good for diets. Ya think? How many of my fellow Sparkies have noticed that one. I wish someone paid me some money to research this phenomenon. It would be easy cash in ... Read more
