Ran this morning
Wednesday, May 29, 2013      7 comments

I kept my word and dragged myself out for yesterday's run early this morning. I did not have 4 straight nights of uninterrupted sleep. I was up from 3:30 to sometime after 4:00. Waaaah! ... Read more
The Minuteman Bikeway
Monday, May 27, 2013      6 comments

Jeez. I'm sleepy. But day 3 of healthy eating and exercise. The Hubster and I made it out this afternoon for the Minuteman Bikeway. Meh. Not impressed. The trail was narrow and bumpy. It was very, very congested and many bikers did not know... Read more
Fun Day
Sunday, May 26, 2013      7 comments

WooHoo! Two day streak of eating well and exercising. After church I really didn't wanna go for a run, but I got myself out the door by baby steps. First I changed out of church clothes and into running clothes. Then I coaxed myself into pu... Read more
I Call a Do-Over
Saturday, May 25, 2013      8 comments

I called a do-over. I made it outside for a run. It's chilly. Drizzling. Lots of puddles. Yucky. I was going to go first thing in the morning, but I just wasn't strong enough. But I went later on. I went for the run because I've been going throu... Read more
Biking at Night
Sunday, May 19, 2013      9 comments

Now for a fun blog. On Tuesday, The Hubster and I went for a bike ride after work. We decided to bike the rail trail, which is where we usually go. This time, we put the bikes on the rack and drove over since I wasn't wild about biking back... Read more
I'm Alive, but Not Well
Sunday, May 19, 2013      10 comments

I'm alive. Really. My husband's computer died. He is a programmer and works from home. He needs a computer. So, for the past few weeks, I've been without a computer as he "borrowed" mine. Usually he's pretty good about repairing and replac... Read more

Sorry it's taken me so long to post about Saturday's race. I'm blaming my nutty family and today I have been a slug. So... Time: 5 miles in 52:59 - 10:40 pace. No good pictures, though. I did much better last year (10:10 pace), but I'd als... Read more

Today was an enormously emotional day. Up and down like a Six Flags roller coaster. It started with my waking at 4 in the morning knowing that I was going to have to shut down a very important program that we run at work. With the funding cuts a... Read more
Personal Record Day
Monday, March 25, 2013      8 comments

w00t! I looked at my work out on the training schedule this morning and I decided that I wasn't going to flip out. What was on the training schedule? 3 miles slow (for me about 11:00 pace). 3 miles fast. (for me about 9:30). 1 mile slow. I... Read more
Flip Turns
Sunday, March 24, 2013      6 comments

I met The Hubster at the Y this afternoon. He went in earlier than me so he could get a long run in before a coaching session with me. I was at post-church coffee. The Hubster was on call to help me learn flip turns. See, I didn't want to spend ... Read more
Stumbled upon a technique to improve swim times
Saturday, March 23, 2013      6 comments

I am on an exercise roll. I am also working like a mad-woman. My days have been go, go, go, go, GO! I had to work today and before I even left the house I knew that if I didn't get a workout in this afternoon, I'd be a lunatic. I could have chew... Read more

Swim. Bike. Run. I'm back in the groove. Yesterday - swam about 1/4 mile in about 20 minutes, lots of breaks. Ran 1 mile in 11 minutes. (Didn't have a run in me yesterday.) Biked 8.2 miles in 30 minutes. Today - swam 1/2 mile in 25 m... Read more
Cooking Frenzy
Tuesday, March 19, 2013      7 comments

We had another snow day today. We didn't open for work. Against my better judgment, I used the day to cook. I out-did myself. I made tabouleh from scratch. It's so good. Fresh, crisp flavors. Amazingly good. Of course, washing, trimming an... Read more
I am as God wants me

One of my Italian friends, a wonderful, simple, wise woman from Florence, taught me a phrase that polite Italians will use in response to the question, "How are you?" when they may not be at their best. "Io sono come Dio mi vuole" (or something ... Read more

I'm sad. I want to run again today. It is gorgeous outside. But I can't run today. I get plantar fasciitis when my sneakers get worn out. I didn't want to ruin my new running shoes in the muddy snow yesterday, so I wore the old ones. Mistake. I'... Read more
