Last Friday of January!

Friday, January 30, 2015      2 comments

It is the last Friday of January, so that means I won't see my students until next month. (rimshot) They usually laugh when I say that to them, but it's all good. I'll be going through their discussion questions after they finish their vocabula... Read more

Good Weekend So Far

Sunday, January 11, 2015      0 comments

I made it to the grocery store and washed some of the laundry yesterday before my son and I went to my parents' house for a visit. We watched the playoff games for the NFL and were disappointed about the Panthers' loss in Seattle. My son is a ... Read more

It's the first Wednesday of the year, and I feel a bit harassed trying to get my work put together for a substitute to come in and work with my kiddoes. LORD, please give me the energy I need today to be ready for Friday. Help me get my paperw... Read more

A Little Accomplishment

Saturday, January 03, 2015      2 comments

I completed strength training several days this week, and I am pleased with myself. I've also eaten some type of produce most days this week and logged in some good sleep time with most days getting at least six hours of sleep. I will do everyt... Read more

First Friday of the Year

Friday, January 02, 2015      1 comments

I walked 2.06 miles in 33:47 and feel great. I think I need new running shoes to support my feet and legs. This time at home has been restorative for sleeping purposes. My Christmas decorations are still up and will remain until at least Januar... Read more

Au Revoir 2014

Wednesday, December 31, 2014      3 comments

It is super early on New Year's Eve, and I am still not in bed. I guess all of the napping has caught up with me. I'm also excited because my son and I will visit one of my high school/college friends tomorrow at her home for lunch. She has ho... Read more

It's Time for an Eye Doctor Visit

Monday, December 29, 2014      1 comments

I woke up this morning and realized I am having a terrible time focusing on the writing on my monitor. I dusted it to no avail. My glasses are for distance. I guess I'll call once they open up this morning and try to get in since I missed my ... Read more

I MISS Running

Friday, December 12, 2014      1 comments

I cannot believe how much I miss being able to run. It's taken me twenty-odd years to make such a statement, but my recent ankle sprain has me chomping at the bit to heal and return. I haven't even ventured to power-walk but have relied on stre... Read more

The Thrill of Victory and the Agony of The Feet

Saturday, December 06, 2014      1 comments

I ran this morning and logged in 3.32 miles in 38:19 but managed to wrench my left ankle on an uneven sidewalk in the neighborhood. Grrrr!!! I've been icing it and keeping it elevated. I have a race in one week and want to be able to finish it... Read more

Only 300 Minutes Left!

Sunday, November 30, 2014      2 comments

I have only 300 minutes left to meet my annual goal of 12,000 fitness minutes. Perhaps I can make it to 13,000 for the year with a little extra effort during the last month. We'll see how it goes. I'm enjoying my last day of holiday by baking ... Read more

I Ran My Race

I signed up for and ran a virtual 5K this week. It was actually a wee bit longer. I ran 3.16 miles in 38:55. Thank You, LORD, for allowing me to run the distance. It has been three months since I officially started training for 5K distances. One... Read more

Two Runs So Far

My first run was 2.12 miles on Monday for 24:52 on the track at the school around the corner. Today's run was 2.30 miles with a time of 28:29 on pavement in the wind. I felt good at the pace and had no desire to speed up. I think I like the coo... Read more

Keeping Up

I ran twice this week and feel good about myself. They weren't the long runs of last week but kept me in shape for any future races I plan to undertake. Feeling strong today! The picture below was taken last week as I reached the end of my 5K ... Read more
