Run 262 Still tryin' to get it back
I kept my improved overall pace yesterday but didn't do as well on the intervals. One long one of 11 minutes, and the rest in the 4 minute range. But overall about half run and half walk. It takes longer to get it back every time I think. I'm ju... Read more
It looks like I am getting faster, but only because I am running longer, ;-)
Today I managed and 8 minute interval, a 7 minute interval, and then like a 5 and a 4...or something like that. Feels good to be getting out there again.... Read more

Well time to get back at it again. First there was the acquisition of my company last July....more work and no working out...then in November I quit my job...exhaustion and no working out....finally I have been thinking about it for months and I... Read more
Run # 258 Steamin' along
Well my first interval today was a whopping 4 minutes, which was disappointing considering Monday I did a 10 minute interval and a 13 minute interval....and I thought it was just going to be a sucky run. But I told myself I could do better than ... Read more
Run #257 Da do run run run...
Today was a pretty good run. I focused on just sustaining not necessarily going fast, but rather just being able to keep going. My average pace was 4.4. I managed a 10 minute interval, a 4 minute interval, and a 13 minute interval at the end, so... Read more
Run #256 The screw it run...
Woke up at 5:30 this morning as the wind was howling, and it howled for two hours, then it stopped. I was secretly hoping it would rain by 7:300 because I didn't really want to go for a run, but told myself I shouldn't blow it this soon trying t... Read more
Run #255 Staying on it
Today's run was better. Go figure my mp3 player battery died 9 minutes in, so it was just me and the pavement and my breath, and that made it a little harder. My average speed was up from 4.2 to 4.4, and I managed some longer intervals, longest ... Read more
Bad weigh in....ugh
Well after I lost 35 pounds...starting back around 2009...I vowed that my new max weight ever would be 160. I've been hovering around 160-162 for months. This morning I weighed in at 166.2. And I got 4 days of exercise this week, having decided ... Read more
Run # 254 Stayin on the wagon
Another run this morning, 3 miles, 43 minutes. The walking intervals were a bit longer than Monday's, but so were the running intervals so it all came out about even. Overall pace 4.2. I'm ok with this come back so far.... Read more
Run #253 Gettin back on the wagon
Second run since I quit work. It was not a great run as I have not been out since November. I did intervals of 2 minutes running and 1 minute walking. It's a start again anyway. Got to pay for all that down time, LOL. ... Read more
Run 252 First sabbatical run
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
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
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
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
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
