I know, I know, I know... LOL! It's been nearly the entire year with no logging into Spark for me. I have been really busy with work, having had a couple truly nasty projects to work. Much of the year has been 60-80 hour work weeks.

So yes, I took a month (or two) off from Spark. It all just got to be too much between work, home, running, injury, Spark... but I am back now! :)

Psych! HA! No long run for me, boo hoo. BUT I did get more tape - taped up my shin, hopped on the bike & did a total of 30 miles today. I figure that I need to keep my cardio endurance strong for the lengthy sessions, whether running or cycl... Read more
Maybe it's just my imagination, but woo-boy, my quads are really getting defined with all the bike riding the past week!! Did some Tae Bo this morning & big time stretching/strength training on my legs - and couldn't help but notice that they r... Read more
So on the way home from my girls' birthday party (they are twins), my car died. I had misjudged a turn (driving in an unfamiliar area) and hit a median with the underside of my car - I haven't crawled under it yet to see the damage, as it's pre... Read more
So yesterday, our foster boy arrived at our home. The folks at Animal Services called him Rocky - we don't know if that was the name he was tagged with or if they just called him that because he is in such rough shape. He is the sweetest guy, ... Read more
So this morning I did my 45 minutes of Tae Bo, but really wanted to do something different. Since I still can't run, I've really only been doing Tae Bo... so I pulled out the yucky old "mountain" bike from the garage & hit our local trail for ... Read more
So it has been quite some time since I felt sore from a workout - yesterday, my abs were a bit sore from my Tae Bo Ultimate Abs workout. That so made my day yesterday!
Well, TODAY my butt is sore - just enough to remind me that I worked ... Read more
So I did 2 Tae Bo workouts this morning, Ultimate Abs & Ultimate Upper Body. Grand total of 90 minutes of Tae Bo! It felt pretty good. My shin still hurts, but it's much better than it has been this week.
Woke up early again this morning... Read more
So I didn't sleep all that well last night, was feeling rather stressed. Even took a sleeping pill, hoping that would help. Still woke up extra early, but it was better than it has been! 3am is definitely better than 1am.
Haven't been ve... Read more
Going back to my quiet life. It was much easier & it didn't hurt.
Knocked out an hour of Tae Bo this morning, since I can't run again. Hopefully the shin will recover quickly.
Had someone ask me out, told him no, I'm seeing someone. ... Read more
