The Last Traing Run Before the Race.
Friday, April 20, 2018      2 comments

My official run is on Sunday. I tried a bump up today and didn’t quite make it. I did travel 10.2 km and tired out the dog. I’m not sure how to approach the run on Sunday. Should I run 4 minutes and walk 1 minute and repeat? I was only able to d... Read more

Tonight, we did our very last training session, of a 13 week program, for the 10 k race on Sunday. I am in shock. I would never in a million years have thought I could do this. Maybe I AM coaxing some of those old habits & beliefs down the stai... Read more

Monday, March 25, 2013      4 comments

Spark Coach topic for me today was negative self talk. I know I have trouble with this. I have worked on improving it before. You know, the "what would you say to a very good friend in this situation?" One aspect I haven't thought about pr... Read more
