I MISS Running

Friday, December 12, 2014

I cannot believe how much I miss being able to run. It's taken me twenty-odd years to make such a statement, but my recent ankle sprain has me chomping at the bit to heal and return. I haven't even ventured to power-walk but have relied on strength training to provide the bulk of my fitness minutes this week along with my normal walking around at work as a teacher.

The Thrill of Victory and the Agony of The Feet

Saturday, December 06, 2014

I ran this morning and logged in 3.32 miles in 38:19 but managed to wrench my left ankle on an uneven sidewalk in the neighborhood. Grrrr!!! I've been icing it and keeping it elevated. I have a race in one week and want to be able to finish it. We'll see how the healing process goes this week.

Only 300 Minutes Left!

Sunday, November 30, 2014

I have only 300 minutes left to meet my annual goal of 12,000 fitness minutes. Perhaps I can make it to 13,000 for the year with a little extra effort during the last month. We'll see how it goes. I'm enjoying my last day of holiday by baking gingerbread men and decorating my house for Christmas while listening to NFL Red Zone. Woo-hoo!!!

Thanksgiving Perspective

Thursday, November 27, 2014

"Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth!
Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into His presence with singing!
Know that the LORD, he is God! It is He Who made us, and we are His;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise!
Give thanks to Him; bless His Name!
For the LORD is good; His steadfast love endures forever,
And His faithfulness to all generations." - Psalm 100

    True perspective! All we have belongs to Him and his love is worth more than all the material things we put on our "thank for" list. emoticon

I Ran My Race

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

I signed up for and ran a virtual 5K this week. It was actually a wee bit longer. I ran 3.16 miles in 38:55. Thank You, LORD, for allowing me to run the distance. It has been three months since I officially started training for 5K distances. One of my friends wants me to try a half-marathon in March, but I am content with what I've done so far. Maybe when I'm fifty, I'll do a half-marathon. Ha ha ha! That reminds me; I still haven't registered for my 5K race on December 13. It's the Frosty 5K.
