Day 1/100
Tuesday, August 23, 2011      7 comments

I have stepped on the scales today and gone up to 162 pounds since my last check. My goal for the challenge is 148. That works out at a loss of about a pound a week, which in theory is perfectly achievable. I don't remember the last time I was i... Read more

I have joined the 100 Day Challenge team, so "day one" will be tomorrow and by the end of November I hope to be fitter and healthier, and of course lighter on the scale and smaller on the tape! I will be getting my eating sorted out - after a ... Read more

The beautiful sunrise, not a cloud in the sky, lovely start to the day (although it wasn't long before the clouds were back). Being busier at work, the hours flew by. Eating a tasty chicken salad for dinner. Taking a walk with my ... Read more
Fairly Fast Five

After resting my knee for a few days I decided today to take a short run to see how it felt. I put the GPS on my App for timing but didn't bother with the voice coach as it was just going to be "see how it feels" type of run. I have a known 5... Read more
Get a grip.

Yesterday I felt that my eating was getting a little out of control. However on reflection this morning, I realised that the day on the whole had been okay, it was just a couple of hours in the evening which let me down. Bad choices at dinner ti... Read more

Had a better run today, weather was cool and overcast with a little breeze, ideal running conditions. Managed about 5 miles in 50 minutes which is an average pace for me. Hoping I can step it up a little next month to get a PB at my next race. ... Read more

I'm really pleased with how much exercise I have done this week, it would be great to sustain such levels, but life and family tend to interrupt! If only I could get my eating patterns organised too. Shift work plays havoc with my meal planning,... Read more
Observations and a question
Friday, May 20, 2011      9 comments

First the question for others runners - Do you run looking straight ahead or are you looking down towards the ground and does it even matter? I start out trying to look ahead but constantly find my chin virtually on my chest. Observations ... Read more
On track with my fitness minutes
Wednesday, May 18, 2011      7 comments

I set a target of 14000 fitness minutes for this year and noticed today that I'm at 7014. I'm pleased to make the halfway mark a little early. Just hope I can sustain this pace for the rest of the year and the weather does not hinder me through ... Read more
Great 5K result
Sunday, May 15, 2011      11 comments

I got up early today to eat a light breakfast a couple of hours before the race got under way. There is nothing worse than that "glugging" feeling when you run. I had time to take my dog for a walk, a good warm up to get me in the mood. Back hom... Read more
Feeling Philosophical

I'm feeling ready for a good race on Sunday and perhaps even a PB! Whatever the time, I will be pleased to get round without having to walk. There is a slight change to the route this year. We will be running pitch side at the football stadium f... Read more

A glass of wine
Sunday, April 17, 2011      7 comments

Saturday night often means a glass or two of wine. This week I was taxi driver for the kids and their friends so that meant no drinking for me. I did feel a little ticked off but I don't mind taking my turn. Waking up early this morning I felt p... Read more
Took a walk today

A day of April showers today, blustery and fresh, just as spring should be! Had a walk to the nature reserve and saw the first Cowslips of the year. My dog had a... Read more
