This time for real
So i have been bad at logging in. I have been working out - now am more focusing on healthy food, in a way I can keep at. Lower carb, but not NO carb. (read: sandwiches are not the norm, nor is cereal or toast for breakfast - many dinners are... Read more
Back to slow
About a year and half (maybe more) I herniated a disc in my lower back. I recouped (after a LONG bed rest) and a bit of medicine, I was back to normal (plus some lbs).
I started back on my program, and slowly started working back toward my... Read more
Run program - week 3 progress
Well, I will hand this to Galloway - you have to pay attention!
I have gotten lost in the seconds breakdown a few times, either running or walking longer then prescribed.
All in all, it seems good - I upped my speed on the long hauls, but pe... Read more
New running program
Just looked into Run Disney – and they Galloway method – which I am planning to start as a new 10K process. I am hoping this will be a good choice, since my new phone does not like the old app I was using.
Anyone tried this already?
What... Read more
Down and out
Whew! Just getting back into it - after some tripping (and not getting to Spark) then my laptop died (still dead, using PC at work), then two and half weeks of pneumonia - I am back. I gained some pounds back (grr) and am hitting the gym again... Read more
Poll - of sorts
I was at the gym last night - getting some weight training in - and was circling, and being circled, by a group - 4 men and a woman - who seemed to be helping/training each other on the machines near me.
Now, I ensure to clean my face and t... Read more
Back in the game
I am back in it!
Last Tuesday I was able to mostly run the group run trail with my group at work - I did it twice - for about 4 miles. (Woo!)
Then Thursday I ran my training - on an incline program (that's new)
And this weekend Hubby ... Read more
So hip is not as bad now - a bit sore, more like a torn muscle I guess.
Ankle is better, perhaps a bit weak, but working without pain.
New pain - both upper thighs - front only - are sore and hurt to use. This is causing problems as I tr... Read more
I seem to have hurt myself.
Since Monday after the run, my ankle, which I turned during the run, and my opposite hip have been hurting. I have put a heating pad on the ankle, and it helps while its on, but is bad again once it's cooled of... Read more
So I finished. I was a lot slower then I thought, but not the last of my wave.
There was also a lot more weaving and twisting then I thought, as I ran past the 'zombies' on... Read more
So my hectic weekend started on Halloween - Got dressed (witch, for those wondering - stripey tights, black dress, wacky pointy hat) headed to work - was late- 4 accidents on the way - then got a call 40 minutes later - hubby had gotten in an ac... Read more
So I picked up my running - now I am training for a 10K - while getting ready to run a 5 K in 2 weeks.
Hubby and I headed to the gym got moving and I surprised myself. I saw the intervals and thought they'd be pretty doable - not picturing... Read more
So this week sees a 1/2 lb loss. 0.5, not an entire pound.
OK, it's still down, so that's good. I tried to be good, may have had a cocktail with a smidge of honey in it, but I did not think that would slow me down that much. I ran a ... Read more
Taking it one day at a time.
So last night, lovely weather again, I decided not to run. Something told me 3 days in a row might be too much.
I did go for a walk though- it was beautiful.
Now we come to today - I was tempted, and sucumbed, to a donut.
I am now try... Read more
Becoming a runner
Yesterday I planned to hit the gym and do some ab work after I got home from work. As I was walking to my car, I was happy that the air was cooler then usual. I tried to keep my vents and windows open, but was overpowered by exhaust fumes, so ... Read more
