I went out running 5k this morning. There were scattered flurries. A wind. My brain screamed at me - what the heck are you doing? It's cold. Get inside!! I bought two tops at the running store yesterday. The Under Armour base layer is aweso... Read more
My Friday is colourless
Friday, November 23, 2012      2 comments

No Black Friday for me. I am going shopping though. A running store is having a 20% off all items, even sale ones. Going to see if I can pick up some warm running gear. Not sure how much running I'll do outside once the snow sticks to the ground... Read more
Not exactly the speed demon I am in my thoughts

Didn't run under 29 like I wanted. I was way, way slower. I just don't seem to be able to pace myself properly on the dang hamster wheel. Or set it up properly. But on the plus side, I did run 5.4km. And that as Martha Stewart says, i... Read more

My friend came out to clip Leo today as planned. I brought her a double double from Timmies. Got one for the barn owner's son too. He hadn't had coffee yet and it was near 11 am. He went back to his work with the log splitter quite happy. L... Read more

I really slept in today. To almost 10 am. Now I'm trying to get moving. Contemplating going to buy a stall toy for Leo and then going to ride. I jogged three times on the treadmill this week. Over 9 km for sure in total. Going to the barn a... Read more
Which clip to clip.....

Going to give Leo a clip this winter as I intend to work him more. My friend who occasionally rides for me is an expert at clipping so has volunteered to come do it Sunday. Just not sure which one we'll do. The Bib - just the chest and... Read more
What the heck is "diet rage"?

Anyone? Anyone? Beuller? Beuller? The question on one of the polls was: How would you rate your "diet rage"? Answer choices: - Low- I'm moving slowly, but I'm on my way! - Moderate- Everyone's moving except me - High- I'... Read more

Just went to wash my breakfast container at the kitchen area and saw white flakes drifting by the window. The Weather Network hasn't noticed. Considering the beautiful warm temp we had yesterday, it's a little disheartening to see snow so soon. ... Read more

I rode Leo today and then I went to the gym with DH. Hooked the phone to the treadmill & recorded my workout. I did the SP beginner speed workout again. I jogged for a little longer because I set the timer for 30 minutes and not 24. Didn't want ... Read more
