I came to realize today that the 3-day walk I signed up for so long ago is now only 2 weeks away!!! Even though I have walked long distances now, and done OK, the idea of 20 miles in a day is still intimidating. I am now packing and evalua... Read more

It has been a hellish weekend. We went to New Mexico to give my BIL who has been caring for our sick MIL some respite. We came to realize that she is not going to recover this time, and it made the time when she was alert and active even... Read more

I hit the wall today. Went out for a 9 mile walk, and came back very sore in my hips and calves. I also hae a small blister on each foot. It was a good walk, and I enjoyed it. I walked from my house to the local Starbucks to meet a group... Read more

It has been a while since I have posted a new blog entry, so here goes. Many people lately have told me that I am amazing, and that I am their hero or role model. It is funny because I don't feel like what I think a hero or role model ... Read more

I can't believe it is now only 10 weeks to the big day! The Expo this weekend was good, and I learned some good things, especially an exercise to strengthen my ankle. I am committed to getting more miles in this week, and even attempting a... Read more

I can't believe it is now only 12 weeks to the walk! I twisted my ankle last week, but it is healing nicely and I am trying to be patient with it. It isn't easy, I can tell you. It is funny. Even a year ago, I would have been able to do ... Read more

Well, it has been a while since I wrote in my journal. Partly because I have been really busy and stressed out. I didn't really volunteer for all the duties I have, but I find myself overcommitted. This is affecting my motivation in every... Read more

It has been an exciting week. Falcao is back to a good level of work, even if it is still lower level stuff, but I can feel the upper level stuff in there, just have to get permission to start using it. That will come with time. Tomorrow ... Read more
A Not so good day

Well, I managed to stay inside my calories yesterday, but just. I guess I'm tired from the stress of the horse show this past weekend, and the driving to El Paso and back, but it still should not have been an excuse for yesterday. Just to ... Read more

After yesterday with my new walk partner, I have to take today as a day off from walking. She told me she was out of shape, but doing the 3-day, and needed to start. I said, OK, you set pace and distance. Well, we ended up doing 4.5 miles... Read more

Well, I told Kristi that our walk today would be slower. I didn't know what was going on in her mind, but my goal was to get even higher than last time. Well, I told her that I wanted to get to shuttle stop 6, and then started walking wi... Read more

Had a wonderful session with my trainer today, and she REALLY pushed me. I did 25 minutes at a medium resistance on the elliptical, 15 minutes of spinning (I really like that), 45 minutes of resistance training and 60 minutes of water aerobics.... Read more
Road to the 3-Day

Well, I attended the FOCUS meeting for the 3-day in our area on Saturday and got a lot of ideas for fundraising. The amazing thing for me, tho, was I found out that I am ahead of most of the people there in my training. Most of them are ... Read more

Wednesday, April 26, 2006      0 comments

This week has been a mixed bag. Yesterday I was working out with my trainer, and in the middle of our resistance training, my right knee rolled out from under me. I caught myself before I really hurt it, but it was scary. I did water aero... Read more
