Run #227 In the outdoor gym

Monday, December 01, 2014      0 comments

Today is supposed to be the only day this week with no rain, so I figured if I wanted to go for a run any time soon, it should be today. It was a fabulous morning. I left in a sweatshirt but it turned out I did not really need it. It was around ... Read more

Really? I haven't been for a run since August 29? Got to fix that! Been working out, just not running. I see a run in my future--maybe I can sneak out this weekend.... Read more

Runs 225 and 226 Another two in a week

Friday, August 29, 2014      0 comments

Two more runs this week, on Monday and Wednesday, both with just a watch and timer, no GPS. Monday was pretty good, Wednesday again was tougher. I had several walking intervals, not very long though. Monday I just ran city streets. Wednesday I h... Read more

Run #224 Two runs in a week

Thursday, August 21, 2014      1 comments

I haven't done two runs in a week in a while. It was definitely harder and my body protested in little fits and starts about having to do the work. It's definitely easier rowing. I decided I liked the idea of running with no GPS, etc but I tried... Read more

Run #223 A good run

Monday, August 18, 2014      2 comments

Today I almost didn't get out of bed to work out, but then my mind started churning and I figured for my sanity I needed to hit the pavement. I put my GPS on, but then it said the battery was low, so I took it off, and my heart rate monitor, and... Read more

Lazin' on a Sunny Sunday afternoon

Sunday, July 27, 2014      0 comments

DH and I went for a nice breakfast with a friend at a new place he wanted to introduce us to. It was pretty good, and there were some new breakfast choices, which was nice, although neither of us would order the dishes that we had again. Afterwa... Read more

Run # 222 Bad run, good workout

Wednesday, July 23, 2014      1 comments

Today's run was just the crappiest run I've had in a long time. In fact, it wasn't much of a run. I did far more walking. I had a nice 3 minute warm up, then about a 13 minute run. I stopped at the exercise station in the park and did some of th... Read more

Run #221

Thursday, July 17, 2014      0 comments

I went for a run on Monday and it was pretty good. I ran from home through the park, and broke up my run some by using the exercise stations they have in the park. For the run part I didn't push myself to try and run x number of minutes continuo... Read more

Run # 220 See Jane Run Alameda 5K

Sunday, June 22, 2014      1 comments

Well I haven't run in a couple weeks ( I think I missed blogging a run...I am sure I have done one since Bay to Breakers.) This past week we were on vacation at Yosemite. It was hot and my allergies were raging. They were better when I got home,... Read more

Run # 219 Bay to Breakers

Thursday, May 22, 2014      1 comments

I crawled out of bed at 5:20, ate a bowl of cereal and headed to BART, which they claimed was starting trains at 6:00. I didn't need to be downtown until 7:15 but I was worried about getting the car parked. The BART station finally opened a few ... Read more

Run #218 Sluggy, Bay to Breakers, & a bum knee for DH

Wednesday, May 14, 2014      0 comments

Man this morning everything just felt like a slog! I dragged myself to the gym...I debated rowing instead of running because I just felt like such a slug, but I opted for the outdoor time since the day was beautiful an supposed to be really hot ... Read more

Run #217 You don't spit into the wind...

Thursday, May 08, 2014      0 comments

But you can run into it. The weather report said the wind yesterday was 3 mph but I cry foul. It was pretty chilly on my upwind leg, which I did first. But of course I warmed up and by the time I was headed back to the gym I was pretty hot and w... Read more

Run #216 Two runs in a week!

Friday, May 02, 2014      0 comments

Well today made two runs in a week for the first time in many months. I clocked in between 2.5-3 miles. A bit slower than I used to go, but I am trying to ramp up a bit more slowly. Averaged around 4.5 mph for the trip. I know some people walk t... Read more

Run # 215 Me and the little black skirt

Wednesday, April 30, 2014      0 comments

Well I finally got out for another run today, about 40 minutes, most of it running. I got a little headachey at the end so I walked the last few minutes. I was a little slower than I have been but it still felt good, and after all, I haven't bee... Read more

Run # 214 Rockin' the running skirt!

Wednesday, April 09, 2014      2 comments

Today I decided I really wanted to go for a run instead of rowing, and I need to get back into it because I have a 5K in June. I took my new shoes out for I think their third run, and I'm really happy with them. Also I have wanted a running skir... Read more
