long run day....

Sunday, October 17, 2010

I'm supposed to bust out a long, slow run today. 5 to 6 miles.

Its cold. I have to teach a class today. I have a million other excuses, including I'd rather play bridge with my granny. I am going to do it. I will turn the legs over today.

I ate okay yesterday. My calories were a little high, but still okay. I figure the hike burned off any of that! I guess the calorie thing on here doesn't take into account the amount of vertical we hiked yesterday.

I'm missing my husby terribly. How did I do it before (and soon to be again) where I don't see him for a week?? Its only been 2 days.

Have a good Sunday

    I think the best motivation that someone can have is looking for the reward after... I always think before a run how GREAT it feels afterward and how much better my day will be. I look forward to the day I can run even a mile without stopping.. and I know I will grow from there.. keep it up.. remember where you started and you will appreciate where you are. After your run you will feel like you are on top of the world again! I am sorry about your hubby being away.. time will pass and he will be home again. I know it must be hard... try to look at the reward for that also... and maybe while he is gone do something that he will notice when he gets back.. maybe redecorating a room in your house.. it will keep you busy and also feel refreshing! take care.. :) Remember... God won't give you more than you can handle.. :)

I don't know what to say... except WOW

I don't have much to talk about except my friend, Julia.


She's down to her high school weight, size 4, and fit as a fiddle. She and I hiked 3 miles today up and down the ski slopes and got to chat about life. It was wonderful. I haven't had girl time in a long time.

Congrats Julia, you look great.

Redemption menu and run

Friday, October 15, 2010

I need to redeem myself after yesterday. Holy cow. I tracked everything... Almost double the calories I normally eat in a day.

I have my redemption menu set. I have my redemption run planned. I believe the pool at the college is closed tonight, so I am going to bike instead this evening or lift at the station.

I know there will always be days like that, but I need to police myself a little closer next time. AND that next time is next saturday. Its homecoming and I'm doing all the alumni functions. I may just pack my meals and call it good.

The good news is, my stomach is killing me from eating garbage which will probably deter me from eating said garbage for a while. The flight schedule is getting shaken up again with the 145 being OOS so husby may be able to go to the homecoming game with me. I know he's not a football guy, but he seemed to enjoy himself last year.

I'm back on track this morning with my cup of coffee, jug of water and 300 calorie breakfast.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Game Day... again

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Today WVU plays South Florida. Our company is having a tailgate. The good news is we get to leave work at noon to caravan up to the stadium. The bad news is, I believe we are stopping for wings for lunch. Ugh.

With the screwy schedule today, I don't know when I'm going to get time to workout. I didn't swim last night because husby sprung a social event on me at the last minute. He doesn't ask me to do stuff like that very often and the family we went to see has known him since he was a kid and they all wanted to meet me. I felt obligated.

I think even though tonight is a bike night, I may go swim at the base. If that doesn't work out, maybe I'll go to the fitness center there and run on the treadmill. ARG! I am so used to my routine and when things get out of whack I get frustrated.

I really WANT to run today since I've been doing so well. I want to see what I have today. Maybe the rain and the screwy schedule is God's way of telling me I need a break from running.

Anyway, dodge those raindrops and have a great Thursday!

The dog decided to sleep on my tummy and chest last night. Oy.

Coffee is just not cutting it this morning.

Had a good bike ride last night. A little chilly, but good. I rode the rail trail near husby's house downstream to Masontown and back... a little shy of 9 miles.

I have a run and a swim programmed for today. I am guessing from as tired as I am feeling, my run won't go as well as I would hope. It is interval training, though.

I got a high five from the guy who walks at the same time that I run. He's very motivational. He's a soccer ref and stopped me the other day to tell me my run looks like its getting stronger. :)

Gotta get this work day started! Gotta get over the hump!
