Run # 258 Steamin' along
Wednesday, February 24, 2016      0 comments

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

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

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

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

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

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
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

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

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

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
