Realistic goals for 2014

Thursday, January 02, 2014      3 comments

I've got a very positive vibe that this will be a year of positive change for me. In the past I've decided that I want to run such and such race or a similar feat. Sometimes things have played out well but more often than not, I've fallen flat... Read more

July 2 Progress Report

Tuesday, July 02, 2013      0 comments

I was shocked that I haven't updated my blog since May 21st! I've been consistently running since then. Unfortunately, I'm still doing C25K. Around Week 4, I switched to trying to cover mileage instead of concentrating on time. This resulted... Read more

May 21 Progress

Tuesday, May 21, 2013      1 comments

Today's run was really interesting. Last Thurs when we ran it was considerably cooler than today. During our half mile intervals last Thursday our pace was 14:12-13:32 min/miles, depending on the interval. Our pace dropped on today's run. We... Read more

Wednesday, May 08, 2013      0 comments

Well after being in Week 4 limbo for a couple of weeks, my running partner and I successfully finished the 1st day of week 5 today! The .5 mile intervals were challenging. The first 1/2 mile was a struggle, but as I powered through the second ... Read more

Still working on week 4

Saturday, May 04, 2013      0 comments

My running partner and I are still working on the forth week of C25K. The good news is we have actually ran some of the full half mile portions. In the ones we haven't, we've done all but about a tenth of them. So, we are seeing progress. ... Read more

Week 4 start

Tuesday, April 23, 2013      2 comments

I had high hopes for starting week 4 of C25K today. Week 3 went really well and I felt like I breezed through it. During my run today, I could only do 1/4 intervals of running before needing to walk. The two 1/2 mile intervals did not pan out... Read more

Week 3 for 3 weeks

Tuesday, April 16, 2013      1 comments

So I've been doing the same workout for about 3 weeks. My workout partner and I did it the first week, spring break came and I only walked due to a sore toe, so we started the week over today. The good news is we agreed we are ready for week 4... Read more

Week 3-Off to a good start

Tuesday, March 26, 2013      4 comments

My friend and I did the first day of week 3 and it was much easier than my attempt a week ago. We successfully powered through it. I had a little shin splint pain but nothing that was a show stopper. Doing the 2 minute reps last week seems to... Read more

Couch to 5K-Can I once again run a whole 5K?

Wednesday, March 20, 2013      3 comments

I've decided to keep a running blog during my training as I attempt to regain my glory by completing a new 5K by running the whole thing. Since I've had tremendous progress before with Couch to 5K, or C25K, it's the program I'll be using. At ... Read more

Saturday, December 29, 2012      6 comments

My goals/plans for 2013 (but with an earlier start): 1. I'm going by the fitness center near my work on the afternoon I return from break to sign up. Over the past few months I've debated whether to invest in some equipment for my home gym o... Read more

I'm still struggling with stretching out my running intervals. Being 41 now, I can't skip out on stretching and expect to stay loose while trying to run. This worked when I was younger...somewhat...but it won't now. Yoga is over until March (... Read more

Working On Defining Goals

Tuesday, November 13, 2012      2 comments

I'm entering my second week working out pretty consistently. I feel like I can begin setting some goals for myself. Each year as I get older, regaining fitness has been harder and harder. I do not bounce back from inactivity as well as I ... Read more

Taking Charge A Day At A Time

Saturday, November 10, 2012      1 comments

I've actually been enjoying running again. A captive to my Garmin, I found myself concentrating way too much on the watch in the past. Since I've been running again, I alternate my running intervals with my walking intervals based on a combina... Read more

After a false start, I think I'm on-track

Monday, September 10, 2012      1 comments

Last week was a bust for beginning BFL. Once again, I allowed work to shut me down once I got home. The recliner called me and there I stayed. After recovering (from work) over the weekend, I began my week with a BFL upper-body workout. ... Read more
