I love to RUN.....

I love to FARTLEK.....

Hence my name "FARTLEKGIRL." However, it's not what you think. "Fartlek" is a Swedish word that means "speedplay."

It's a great form of exercise for building strength and endurance, burning calories and reducing boredom in your workouts.

Runners are very familiar with this term.

Google "Fartlek" and you will find a lot of different variations. Check it out and have a little fun ...

My Goals:
Run next 5K in under 27 minutes

Competed in the Hammer Duathlon for my 50th birthday and won my age division.

I met my goal of running in the 2009 Knoxville Half Marathon. I ran the 13.1 miles in 2 hours, 38 minutes, 16 seconds.


My Program:
Walking - Running - Biking - Hiking - Pilates - Weights - Stretching - Anything else I can fit in

Personal Information:
My name is Pam, I am 51 and live in Loudon, TN.

I have struggled with my weight all my life. I had done really well and had lost 25 lbs. Then over the last 2 years, I put 15 back on. Life happened and I had to focus on caring for a sick loved one, which meant I had to put me aside for a while. If it were not for the seriousness of the illness, I probably would have kept things up, but when someone is dying of cancer, nothing else seems to matter. Now I am getting back on track. Keep me in your prayers as I move forward.

Other Information:
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.
-Aristotle

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

Hey, thanks for the "massage." I love the thought, and am planning to get a real one soon. It is so soothing for my sore skin.

Headed out soon to the Health Food Store for the stuff to make my veggie smoothies. I'm afraid they will taste awful, but I'm determined to choke it down if it will help me get healthy!

I'm also doing my exercize CD regularly. I can't keep up with them, but go as fast as I am able. As time passes, I'll catch up with the people on the CD.

Love you, MOM

Thanks for the goodie! And for being proud of me. I wasn't a perfect diet success today, but was a lot closer to it than I've been in awhile. I'll keep working at it and will improve as days go by, I'm sure.

Way to go, Pam! You are on the right track and will be successful I'm sure. I know your determination and have seen your perseverence in anything you try. Why should this time be any different? I know you will reach your goal!

I'll try to keep up with you.
