Two weeks to go...

Friday, April 02, 2010      2 comments

I've been having some medical issues the last week and a half that have kept me from walking. First, I changed BP meds, and I had some serious adverse reactions to it...took almost a week to get switched back to my original med, and then I had s... Read more

Rebellion

Sunday, March 21, 2010      1 comments

It seems that my body is conspiring against me. Perhaps it's because I pushed it further than it's been in at least a month...in that I walked three times during the week in addition to the weekend walks. Whatever it doesn't like, it won't tell ... Read more

Yay for Daylight Saving Time!

Sunday, March 14, 2010      3 comments

I'm stupidly excited that DST is finally here...now I have no excuse not to walk after work. :P Went to my doctor this week--she thinks the fatigue I've been having has been due to the BP med I've been on, and not due to what I was eating.... Read more

I can see the finish line!

Well, not quite...but we made it up to 11.04 miles today! We're actually getting a bit worse time-wise...we think it's because we're not getting adequate recovery time in between these long walks. We've been at it pretty much every single weeken... Read more

Conscious decision

Sunday, February 28, 2010      0 comments

Starting today, between now and the half marathon in April, I am not counting calories. I have come to the conclusion that something's amiss in my food intake, and until I get the results back from my blood work (at the earliest), I'm not going ... Read more

Twice in less than a week!

Saturday, February 27, 2010      3 comments

Longest walk to date: 10.56 miles in 3:27:04. Went a bit slower today, due to Jeremy's head cold and my ankle was acting up for some reason...but we did it! I have no doubt that we'll be able to finish the half marathon in April, no problem! :) ... Read more

Feeling better!

I just completed my longest walk to date: 10.05 miles in 3:05:42. That averages out to an 18:28-minute mile pace...that makes me happy. On track for the half marathon in April. I still can't believe I accomplished this. It's almost like I'm... Read more

Back on the horse

Saturday, February 20, 2010      0 comments

It's been a full five days since I last walked. Have been dealing with a sinus infection all week...today was the first day since Monday where I didn't wake up aching. Plus the weather got all warm (okay, for NC it's warm...upper 50s in February... Read more

Interesting observation

Tuesday, February 16, 2010      2 comments

Not based in fact, just my personal experience. I started eating poorly about five days before the walk on Sunday. The walk where I had no energy. Turns out I had a sinus infection...didn't get bad (like fever and body aches and scratchy throat ... Read more

Where did my energy go?

Sunday, February 14, 2010      0 comments

I've been wondering if the last couple of weeks had been a fluke, but I'm beginning to think not. I have noticed while attempting to do Leslie Sansone DVDs that I have been able to do previously without too much problem that it was all of a sudd... Read more

Challenging

Saturday, February 13, 2010      2 comments

That's how I'm characterizing this week. I completely derailed food-wise the last three days. Plus I started a new job on Monday and I haven't figured out where to fit in exercise just yet. And today, instead of walking, I attempted to do some i... Read more

Blisters and bad weather

Wednesday, February 10, 2010      2 comments

So, walked 8.83 miles on Sunday. I was rewarded with my first set of blisters. :/ One on the bottom of my right foot (on the EDGE of the moleskin I'd put on the ball of my foot to prevent blisters!), one on my pinky toe of my right foot, and one... Read more

First walk in over a week

Sunday, February 07, 2010      2 comments

After a energy-filled breakfast, I'll finally be heading out to take a walk. It's been miserable weather the last week and a half; we got snowed in last Friday night, and there were icy roads for a few days. That was promptly followed by three d... Read more

Getting my walking in

Friday, January 29, 2010      1 comments

So there's a snowstorm blowing in tonight. As a result, I've been racing to get my walking in this week before the snow hits. Because in the South, snow shuts the place down. :P We Southerners just don't know how to deal with snow (unless you li... Read more

Weights

Tuesday, January 26, 2010      1 comments

I finally "graduated" from 3-pound weights to 5-pound weights, and used an 8-pound weight as my "heavy" weight. (This from 3- and 5-pound weights.) I'm doing the 30 minutes to fitness bicep/tricep/shoulder workout from Kelly Coffey-Meyer, and I ... Read more
