All systems normal

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

I have my credit card back in my possession. Whew.

I gave myself a To Do list last night and finished it. I now have one fully loaded iPod shuffle (that I've owned for years but never used) to take with me running. I am not usually a proponent of listening to music while working out outdoors (for safety reasons), but I figure in the cemetary I should be okay. I thought about trying a different route, but the roads are so narrow here with no shoulders that I'm nervous to run on them. I enjoy the safety of the cemetary, the other cemetary and the road connecting the two. The road is a dead end orphaned road from when the interstate was put in, so there's very little traffic on it.

I took a rest from swimming last night. I was exhausted. My body ached. I felt like I had hit a wall and pushing myself any harder may have had unfavorable results.

I plan on a 2.5 to 3 mile run today and a 10 to 15 mile bike tonight. The days have been just beautiful here and I want to take advantage of as many of them as I can. I know there aren't very many left this year.

Stay safe.


Panic Mode

Monday, October 11, 2010

I lost my credit card. I'm pretty sure it is still in my possession, but I cannot locate it. I'm frustrated. I have another one, but I prefer to only use this one.

I am sore today. My legs hurt. I don't know if I should run today. I know I need to, but I don't know if it will be good for me or not.

I am going swimming with the husby tonight at the base. I love having the use of those facilities. Its a really nice pool and we were the only people in there the last time we went.

I can't think because I haven't had my coffee yet.

Have a happy Monday!

    ok, just an update. I found it. It was and is not in my possession. I left it at the restaurant on Thursday. They are holding it for me. Husby is going to stop on his way home and get it.

Recovery day

Sunday, October 10, 2010

I did exactly what I thought I was going to do yesterday. No need to recap. :)

I think I may take a pass on running my long run today. I have serious heartburn from the mexican food from yesterday. Even after my prilosec, I'm still suffering.

I will do some form of exercise. Maybe a shorter jog or a long walk. I haven't decided.

I'm back on track today. I've finished my meal planning for next week. I love having my plans a week in advance. It makes planning for the grocery store so much easier. I just have to remember what I have at the different houses so I don't duplicate. Right now I have a surplus of sour cream because I had a senior moment. :)

I was hoping my girl friend Chris would be interested in working out, but I haven't received a text back yet.

Hears to a reset Sunday!


Game Day!

Saturday, October 09, 2010

Today WVU plays UNLV at home. I am going to tailgate, I'm probably going to eat and drink too much, but I am okay with it. I've noticed even when I'm "bad", I'm still better than I used to be.

I have to go to the post office this morning for the husby and then I'm going to hit the rail trail for a long bike ride. I'm hoping for 20ish miles, but I'll take what I can get. I want to be back to the hospital by noon, so we can go down and get some lunch at our buddy's tailgate.

I had a good run yesterday. I think my nutrition was still a little screwy. It usually takes my body about 24 hours to reset. Husby and I went to the base and swam. I was proud of him, he did a couple of laps! :) I asked if he wanted to go again and he said yes. That made me really happy. I wonder if he really wants to swim or just doesn't want his wife at an army base in a bathing suit alone! ;)
Game day means crazy traffic. I was going to ride down from the house to the hospital, but I was nervous about riding through town. After seeing the traffic at 0630 this morning, I'm glad I chose to throw the bike in the back of the truck and ride down with the Hub.

The scale isn't going anywhere, but my clothes fit well and I'm getting hard and toned. I'm not as self concious in my bathing suit anymore.

I received a really nice compliment yesterday while I was getting ready to run. There's a guy that is always walking while I'm running. He said (in a nutshell), "you're getting stronger, I can see it in your run. Do you feel stronger?" WOW, I've never been complimented on my running. I guess he's a soccer coach in the town I work in. How nice of him to say that. It made me smile and I think I pushed a little harder because of it.

Here's to a super saturday!

Back to work... happily

Friday, October 08, 2010

I am a creature of habit. I have learned to accept that.

Now that I am back at work, I am back to my routine. I like routine. Variations in my routine mess with my whole system. I guess I need to adapt, overcome and survive, but for right now, I need structure and discipline.

I am looking forward to my run at lunch. I think I will start where I left off with couch to 5k. Week 5, day 3. I think its run 2 miles.

I am also looking forward to my swim tonight. I am so happy I can swim at Camp Dawson. The pool looks really nice. AND the husby said he'd go with. I am excited that he wants to go. I hope he gets into it.

Everyone have a wonderful weekend!
