Run #148 Running in the light again

Monday, November 05, 2012

The switch from daylight savings time was great this morning, and I felt like I got 40 minutes of my morning back. In fact I worked some, got in a run, shower, breakfast, packed lunch, and left earlier than I have for a while. (And for that I got to sit in traffic...). Since it was light I just set out running where ever, and ran randomly turning up and down streets. The variety was nice and I had another good run. It was nice to get out. We had a great weekend in Monterey, but in the evening when we got back and I tried to practice my guitar it seemed to go badly and I got frustrated and down. So I really needed the extra endorphin boost this morning.


Run # 147 Me, my HRM and my breathing

Monday, November 05, 2012

This was my Halloween run. I discovered as I was leaving the boat that my battery in my mp3 player was dead so I had no music for my run. I also decided to wear my heart rate monitor on this run for the first time in a long time to see what the changes were. According to it my heart rate was too high for a chunk of my run, as usual, but the highs weren't as high and my overall average was 156. Sitll not sure what to make of all this, but it is progress, and I had a good run and did well, even without the music to help keep me going.


Run # 146 Finally a run!

Monday, October 29, 2012

I didn't get a lick or exercise in last week what with the pouring rain and month end. We had aspirations for the weekend but they died a slow death as is common. I was so lookng forward to my run this monring, and it was terrific! I wore one of my new windbreakers, which was perfect. At the end I was so hot I actually took my shirt off as well as my windbreaker (yes, I was still decent ;-))
It was great to be on the road again and I's still riding high.

Best walk of 2012!

Saturday, October 27, 2012

Well, DH has been wrestling with acute chronic plantar faciitis in both feet all year. He's been improving, but slowly. Back in January gone were the walks to breakfast or the movie theater, or even just next door to the marine store. It was just too painful. So we had cortisone shots, and months of PT. No walks, no aikido. Even working was hard because he had to be on his feet so much. Tonight he suggested going for a walk. So we did. And he walked two miles, at roughly 3.5 mph! This is the farthest and fastest all year. It was awesome! I think he feels a bit wimpy and embarrassed. But his feet have overcome a lot this year! Hooray, we ARE getting better. emoticon

Run # 145 Light on my feet

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Today was just a fun run. I felt really light on my feet and it felt pretty effortless. The first half I just felt like I could run foreverl Nothing hurt and breathing was easy. The second half I know I slowed down a bit but it was still good, and felt good. I still think I am getting a bit faster. How cool.
