Run 252 First sabbatical run

Wednesday, November 25, 2015      0 comments

Last Friday I finally got out for a run, the first since I quit my job and started what I am calling my sabbatical. It was not a great run, but it was not horrible considering the amount of time that has passed with no exercise in my life. I ran... Read more

Run 251 Gettin' it back

Friday, October 02, 2015      0 comments

Well I got out again Monday and managed two 9 minute intervals. Pretty pleased with that. Wednesday was month end hell though, and today I was tired and the hubby had a migraine that got us up, so only one run this week in the end. But hopefully... Read more

Run 249 & 250 Workin' hard

Sunday, September 27, 2015      1 comments

Well, the exercise went to heck again after August 3, and I finally got out for two runs this week, Wednesday and Friday. The time off sure didn't do me any favors. They were hard, but it was good to get back out and exercise, and I know I will ... Read more

Run #248 Back to the work out

Monday, August 03, 2015      3 comments

I've barely gotten a lick of exercise in the last two weeks because I have been so down and exhausted I was not in the mental frame of mind. I just wanted to sit home and drink and eat cake and not care. In the back of my head I knew I did care,... Read more

Run #247 Nothin' but time

Friday, June 26, 2015      0 comments

I put my Garmin on the charger last night but I guess it didn't make a good connection as this morning it reported a low battery. So I went for a run with just my watch and my tunes. It was a nice morning, and cool, but as soon as I started runn... Read more

Run #246 Getting acclimated

Friday, June 12, 2015      1 comments

Turned in just under 3 miles today in 37 minutes at an average speed of 4.5. The only walk breaks I took were when I was crossing the main thoroughfares in town, so I am definitely getting back in the swing again. Yay! Nice feel good run. Read more

Run #245 Slow and steady

Tuesday, June 09, 2015      3 comments

Today felt like a bit of a slog but I'm still getting back into it and my average speed was a little over 4.5. I amused myself by doing circles in the park, which has several paths that essentially make a small, medium, and large loop. So I did ... Read more

Runs 243 & 244 getting better again

Wednesday, June 03, 2015      0 comments

I ran last Wednesday and again this morning. I am definitely improving my speed and stamina. Today I averaged 4.5 mph for my run again, so I am acclimating again and enjoying it. It is nice to be outside and not at the gym. I am seriously thinki... Read more

Run #242 around the town

Friday, May 22, 2015      2 comments

Clocked another 45 minute run this morning. Not breaking any speed records but enjoying being outside. Had to yell at myself to go work out this morning. Could not face the gym...but outside was nice. I zig zagged through town going up one block... Read more

Run #241 Feeling hella good

Thursday, May 21, 2015      2 comments

Skipped the gym yesterday and just got up and went for a run. 50 minutes at about 4.5 average. Haven't been for a run that long in a while. I've been faster, but I haven't been running that much lately. It felt great. No soreness yesterday or to... Read more

Runs 238-239-40 Outside inside outside

Wednesday, May 13, 2015      0 comments

Three more runs. Two outside and one inside. There really is a big difference between the treadmill and the road. Outside the scenery is much nicer and the air is fresher. On the treadmill it is easier to hold your pace, as the machine helps you... Read more

Run #237 Yet more treadmill

Tuesday, May 05, 2015      0 comments

Yesterday I did beginner speed work out 3 again. I modified it again to fit me. The difference between workout 2 and 3 is amazing. They really need a workout 2A or something. Workout two tops out at like 4 mph, and workout 3 goes to 6.2. Serious... Read more

Runs 235 & 236 Hard to remember

Wednesday, April 29, 2015      0 comments

Well the spring has been a bit chaotic and work outs have been more sporadic than they have been in a while. My blood pressure is borderline high and my weight is up 10lbs I don't want, so it is time for the crack down. Cracking down and so far ... Read more

Bwaaaaaa.....the blob.....

Tuesday, March 31, 2015      1 comments

Ugh. I just topped 160 again this week....the weight I said I never wanted to go over again (still less than what I started at. It's my new "max" weight). I'm 10 pounds up from where I want to maintain, and have been for quite a while, yo yo-ing... Read more

Run # 233 & 234 More treadmill

Friday, March 13, 2015      1 comments

I've been doing more speed work outs on the tread mill, beginner 2 or beginner three, depending on how I feel in the morning when I get there. I've been really tired and kind of stressed lately so my performance has not always been up to par I d... Read more
