On the bike again, & need some ideas
DH and I went for a bike ride after work--a whopping 23 minutes, but it is better than no exercise. I put my bike in a gear where I could pedal continuously. I enjoyed it, but the bike is a little uncomfortable. It wasn't bad riding but my thum... Read more
Today was my first run since last Wednesday due to the intervening vacation. It went better than I expected to. Then I rode my bike to work, since it was tuned up from vacation and DH needed the truck today, and the car is still in the shop.

Run #93 Chuggin along
Today I was out for 35 minutes and did 2.7 miles. Due to the boat show I hadn't been for a run, or gotten any exercise really, since Friday. Today was a bit of a slog, but I did it. I got a stitch in my side right at the end, don't know why, but... Read more
Some days...are one of those days
Some days it is really hard to want your target weight more than you want that tiny piece of bread with just a taste of brie on it.
Today is one of those days.... Read more
Run #92 Ok HRM, really?
Suddenly, between Wednesday and now, my body has taken a huge leap forward if my heart rate monitor is to be believed. While up until now the high heart rate alarm has usually gone off about 5 minutes into my run and then throughout the rest of ... Read more
Run #91 Not rained out!
Well the weather was so bad yesterday and the forecast for today was so bad that I didn't even put my running clothes out because I expected it to be raining. But when my alarm went of it was clear, so I bolted out of bed, into my clothes, and o... Read more
Run #90 Countdown to 100!
38 minutes today, 2.9 miles. I ran steadily the first half, then did 5 sprints interspersed with one minute of walking, then ran a final few minutes (I didn't look) then had about a 5 minute cool down. I get to work about 15 minutes late every d... Read more
Run # 89 Tired Friday
Today I only did 2.6 miles. Dinner last night consisted (accidentally) of bread with olive oil & vinegar, some french fried, some onion rings, and 2 glasses of wine. After that I was too full for real dinner so we never got to it. I woke up abou... Read more
Run # 88 Just got up and went.
Today I did not pick any destination. I just got up and ran, and had a nice run. Everything I read suggest I am way ready for speed work. So for the first part of my run I ran minute intervals at about double my normal pace I would guess, then w... Read more
Run # 87 5k again
This morning I decided to ignore the heart rate monitor on my Garmin and just keep running. I did give myself a couple minute walking break half way through my run. I don't know if that is a good idea or not--I can fantasize about all kinds of n... Read more
Run # 86
Today I pushed a little harder. I'm still working with the Garmin and the heart rate monitor and all that. I just feel kind of like I can d o more than it says I should, and like already I can't run as far as I could before. That probably isn't ... Read more
Run # 85 Post work run
This morning it was raining but the afternoon cleared off so I was really excited about going for a run after work. I've heard if you are a morning runner it can be really difficult to switch it up to afternoon/evening. Boy was that the truth! I... Read more
Run # 84 More miles of pavement gone
Wow, I'm not that far from 100 runs!
Well, today it seemed to take longer to get the high heart rate alarm going, so either I am running slower or my body's capacity is improved. I don't know which. Of course once my heart rate is up around 17... Read more
Run # 83 Forgotten blog part 2, Friday March 23 run
Today's run felt good. I think the walking breaks are probably helpful. I am trying to pay attention to how my body feels when my "heart rate too high" alarm goes off. My breathing is usually fine I think. Sometimes my legs feel tired. If everyt... Read more
Run # 82 Forgotten blog part 1-Wed March 21 run
Oops, I forgot to blog this run. Still playing with the Garmin. It thinks I should be dead about 10 minutes into every run. Apparently I am training a the top end of my heart rate. The thing is, apparently it takes very little to get this 43 yea... Read more
