June in Review
Well, I know June isn't quite over yet, but it's been such a different month than usual that I'm going to post now.
June was taken up by my long-planned trip to Europe with my daughter Casey. She'd been studying in Greece for 10 weeks, and at... Read more
May in Review
May was sort of a 'holding steady' month. Ended up pretty much the same weight I started, which means I'll have to tacle weight loss seriously again when I get back from Europe.
Much of May was taken up with fine-tuning plans for the Europ... Read more
Greekfest 5K 5/21/2010
I'd commited to this race to stay in touch with some of the people I'd met at my winter running group. Turned out DH had conflict and was not able to join me after, which was disappointing. And, since I'd run the 10K only 6 days earlier I was ... Read more
Cleveland 10K - Fantastic
Weekend got off to a good start with dinner out on Friday night. Local restaurant - knew lots of people - ended up dancing to the entertainment and getting other people up to dance too.
Slept till the dogs woke us up, leisurely got ready a... Read more
A strange month - but feeling just a little bit more in control.
Alas, the random acts of housekeeping died out after a week, and the house is now in desperate need of an overhaul.
Week ending 4/3 - average 1770

A strange month. For the first 20 days everything was on track, and I was down almost 3 pounds (love how the scale gives you feedback when things are going well.)
Starting March 20, though, things changed.
Went to pi... Read more
February Review - Progress!!!!
Well, I'm happy to report that things are still basically on track.
The running has increased very slowly, but the ankle and knee are giving only minimal problems. Total mileage 40.5, less than January, but with the sh... Read more
January 2010 Review
January 2010 one-month check-up.
Logging religiously, both food and fitness. Target range is 1250-1550.

Turkey Trot 2009
My dubious and excited SIL appeared at the doorstep at 6am. She'd driven almost an hour to get there, and was ready to go. I gave her coffee and a banana, and went off to try for the second time to pry DD out of bed. By 6:30 we were ready to ... Read more
New Rules of Lifting 2009
Lift like a man, look like a goddess.
I've just completed the New Rules of Lifting for Women program. It took about 9 months. At my age, I found I needed at least 2 days off between workouts rather than the 1 that was recommended, so it t... Read more
Rochester Police Chase 5K
Now here's one for the books! My slowest time since my very first 5K, and my first age group medal! DD's time was equivalent to her first varsity race over 5 years ago, and she won 3rd Female and gets a trophy!
Went to this one mainly to ... Read more
Mad Cow 5K
Now, who could resist a 5K with a name like that? It was close to our summer place, and I figured it would be small and I might improve my time over my last 5K - maybe even place in my age group if it was small enough.
However.... It was ... Read more
