WAY long time no blog! And as usual, no news is rarely good news when it comes to me. Been back-pedaling badly on the food / tracking front. The lose/regain/lose/regain cycle isn't always very predictable. Thoughts like "oh, I've lost this ... Read more

Well I went and probably overdid it...nailed a 5K each day this week and 3/4 of the way through tonight's jog a muscle along my inner thigh hurt in a way that it didn't seem wise to push it...so walked to the end...long strides to stretch that m... Read more
