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

Run 232 More treadmill speed work

Wednesday, February 25, 2015      0 comments

Today I went and did the third beginners speed work out again, but I modified it so it didn't wipe me out so badly. I kept my top speed a 6.0, which felt quite challenging enough. I kept the incline settings the same as the machine wanted, I jus... Read more

Run #231 I meet my match on the treadmill

Friday, February 20, 2015      1 comments

So today I went for beginner speed workout number 3 on the treadmill, 25 minutes. It topped out at 6.5. I topped out at 6.2, LOL. It was tough, but I did most of it, except for having to slow the machine down some and reduce the incline some on ... Read more

Run #229 and #230 On the treadmill

Wednesday, February 18, 2015      0 comments

Well I decided to change up my workout and that I wanted to start running more, but I've been feeling like my running hasn't been improving much, even when I was doing it 3 times a week. So I decided to try out the treadmill, because it really d... Read more

Run #228 Another two months pass

Wow, no run since December 1! Still been going to the gym and rowing and biking. The trouble is, I'd rather run but if I don't go to the gym I don't get my physical therapy exercises in the keep my neck in shape and not painful. Right now I have... Read more

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

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

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
