I'm thinking of training for a half marathon. <em>40</em> <BR> I've been running for 30 mins. 3 days a week at the gym for two months now. I want to up the ante and start training for a half marathon. I know I'll need to A.) train more often and B.) start running outside on real terrain. <em>20</em> <BR> <BR> I think I might do it. I found a half marathon that takes place in Athens, OH- about 3 hours from here. I lived in Athens for two years before moving to Cincinnati... Mon, 26 Nov 2012 23:10:02 EST 19 crunches with 6 lb. medicine ball in one minute I can't decide if that's good or bad. I mean, it is with a 6 lb. weight. Oh wait, I guess it's good that I even did it at all, let alone before noon. <BR> I like exercising in the afternoon better, but Tuesdays and Thursdays I have class from 11am until 3:30pm so I'm getting up early on those days to get a workout done. <BR> This morning I did yoga for 35 minutes, the ab crunches, and a little weight lifting. <BR> <BR> A major downfall for me is the weekends. I sabotage myself by eating ... Tue, 23 Oct 2012 09:26:31 EST First Day Back To School Today wasn't so bad. I didn't sleep very well because the people that live upstairs from us are noisy and annoying <em>234</em> , and it was really hot in the apartment for some reason. <BR> I got out of bed at 7:30 and was ready to leave by 8:30am. I walk to and from school, which turns out to be a 30 minute walk round trip, so I get some exercise in in the morning. <em>41</em> <BR> I made it through both of my classes. The first day is pretty boring. "Hi my name is blah blah blah. Here ... Mon, 27 Aug 2012 14:00:58 EST Weekend Update 8/26/2012 Well, today is Sunday. I had a pretty low-key weekend. Friday I went to the dentist for a check-up. I found out I have an abscess so I have to go back next week and get it looked at again. I walked part way home from the office, but it was so hot that I caught a bus the rest of the way home. Friday was a low energy day so I used it as my rest day. <BR> During the week I had bought a yoga mat online. It arrived Friday afternoon. Saturday morning while the BF was playing video games, I took ove... Sun, 26 Aug 2012 10:10:45 EST First Time Blog So, as I have said in the short summary of myself, my name is Robin. I am a 36-year old student (there has been a LOT of time between high school and college for me!) I live in Cincinnati with my boyfriend and our cat, Henry. He's really my cat; Neil just inherited him when we moved in together. <BR> Anyhow- I've decided that a blog might be the best way for me to think through my feelings or work through my issues or just to have a reason to keep visiting Spark Page. <BR> As I mentioned a...
