Friday, September 25, 2009      5 comments

Well, I have really taken some time off. My Half was on 9/13/09, and today was my first run. It was in the drizzling fall weather. I did a half mile warm up, and a half mile cool down. I only did 3 miles, but it was a nice walk/jog. My lungs/l... Read more

Thursday, August 27, 2009      1 comments

Nights are never good for me. I snack, I watch a lot of TV, I run around non-stop...over all just not a healthy thing. I am really trying to be better this time around. Monday I was still a little under the weather, so I took that night to ... Read more

Monday, August 17, 2009      3 comments

Well, it is officially the start of week 7, so I do need to wrap up the week before. I was very demotivated last week- with barely any running. On Saturday, I went to a park with a friend to run. My friend, who is a thin, quick runner (whic... Read more

week 6 in training for the half, and have hit a wall of de-motivation

Friday, August 14, 2009      2 comments

I have to say, I have felt pretty darn good about my training up until this month. I managed to keep up my running through the first week, and did overall pretty good. This week, the fatigue of 12 hour days just caught up to me. I have only walk... Read more

Being Bad on Call- need to re-group before te rest of the bad month

Saturday, August 01, 2009      3 comments

Why is it that when I have to be up for 24 hours, I instantly feel like it is a carte blanche to eat whatever I want? I normally do try to be good, but there is something about being in the hospital that brings out my bad girl. Baked fries ( i k... Read more
