Heritage Run 5K recap
Well I had two goals for today.
1) to finish in a better time today than my last 5K
2) to not finish last (yeah, a superficial goal, but it kept me moving.)
I met both goals. Wahoo! My time today was 31:57 - beat my last time by 22 sec... Read more
Last night I took a nap after dinner, before the gym (it's a weird nap time, but it happens often). I slept in my contacts (bad idea) so I took them out to go to the gym. I was going swimming, so it didn't really matter if I could see or not. ... Read more
A quickie for Tuesday
Don't have too much to say tonight... went to the gym and did a great upper body workout and some core stuff, and did an easy run. Drank all my water today and then some. Scrambled egg whites with hot sauce and and an English muffin for break... Read more
Tortoise and Hare 5K Day
My time today was 32:19. Not bad, but I was really hoping to beat my last time of 31:35. Today's course was hilly and it was HOT. Four of us ran today, not all together (we have very different times). Sometimes it's frustrating to run "with"... Read more
Well it's been a stressful couple of days.
Here are some good things.
We have three cars, so even though my car is at the shop, I was able to go grocery shopping and get some stuff done today.
My mechanic is absolutely wonderful, and I c... Read more
And the saga continues...
Well there is good news and bad news. The bad news is that I still do not have a car. the good news is that my wonderful mechanic figured out what was wrong and is going to fix it tomorrow. The bad news is that my water pump and timing belt n... Read more
TGI (almost) F
So yesterday I wrote in my blog about my car problem. Today my car is down at my very trustworthy mechanic, and my very negative review is sent to Midas. After I present them with the write-up about what was wrong with my car (i.e. what they s... Read more
OM freakin G
Today has been one of those days. I took my car in to get an oil change, 80K checkup, and inspection. After making it very clear this morning that those THREE things needed to be done, I didn't get the 80K checkup stuff taken care of. I found... Read more
Well, it's Tuesday.
Today I got an e-mail from Sparkpeople about going to Stage 4. I didn't go on. I am staying in stage 3 and really going to re-evaluate my goals and re-visit them as well. I must get back to thinking about my long-term goals and not settle for... Read more
I don't really have anything specific to write about, so here goes.
Today was my first 5K. Wahoo! My time was somewhere around 31:00, not totally sure, because I forgot to look at the giant time clock when I crossed the finish line. I was j... Read more
Some thoughts for Friday
This morning I have a bunch of stuff that I'm thinking about, so here goes.
Today I have an appointment with the dermatologist. I have been blessed with the good teeth from my father's side of the family, but unfortunately I have also been "b... Read more
RICE - Part II
Today I told the Phys. Ed teacher about my foot pain, and she suggested that it might be an arch issue. My feet are just not used to all this running, so I believe that she might be right. I stopped for some arch supports (the Dr. Scholl's gel... Read more
I have a bruise on the top of my foot. I'm not sure how it got there, but it's there. And it hurts a little bit.
Usually I am very stubborn and the earlier, less body-aware version of me would ignore it and hope it went away. But I decided ... Read more
Eight days to go!
My first 5K is on May 17th. I am SO excited. This morning we did a trial run through the course. I kept pace with one of the trainers; she is going to be my pacer at the race. She doesn't have any clients that are running, so she told me tha... Read more
Wahoo! New shoes!
I have a really ancient pair of ASICS and a pair that I bought back in January. Today I decided to retire my ancient pair and add a second "good" pair to my closet. I went to the local running store and bought a pair of Brooks Defyance. I imm... Read more
