. . . timbers. Today I picked up some newly-sawn 4" X 8" X 8' timbers to add a layer to our raised-bed garden. Actually building the additional layer will be a job for late next week or the week after. There's time--we don't normally plant t... Read more

I wanted to run today. I planned to run today. I paced quiet time, coffee intake, and breakfast so I could run at 0900h. I geared up and drove to my running course. I did my warm-up walk. I was not warmed-up. There was a stinkin' co... Read more

Took the van in to have the seasonal tire change-over done. Bad enough in itself as this year is the year we need new summer tires. I knew that would be a near-$800-bill. I had mentally made a place in the budget for that. And I knew that whe... Read more

In the fall I leave the garden in a mess so the birds and little critters can shelter there and maybe even find some leftover flower seeds and munchable plant stalks. It looks like h**l come spring, so as soon as the snow is well and truly gone... Read more

Disorganized organized sport

That's what DW, DW, S-I-L and a coterie of other doting relatives watched today. It was Grandson's first ever soccer practice and scrimmage. Grandson is 3 years old. If you haven't had the delight of watching a dozen and a half thre... Read more

PAPAMIKIE gave me an idea : )

If any of you read PAPAMIKIE's blog "A Runner's Moon", you'll know he did a moonlight run last night under the Super Moon. Although today I'm not scheduled for cardio, and I don't usually run two days in a row, I decided to run for a bit tonig... Read more

Back in my own good books.

I ran today, not a scheduled running day, because I didn't run yesterday when I was scheduled for it. I like myself again because of it. 10k again, non-stop, new Personal Best. Shaved 30 seconds per mile off my previous time. It wasn't... Read more

"becoming a runner" vs. "has become a runner"

So. The plan was: up at 0600h, coffee and quiet time till 0700, then breakfast; Spark for an hour or so while breakfast "settles", then go out for today's 10k. Reality? up at 0600h. Fresh snow on the ground, cold rain coming down. First... Read more

An honest-to-goodness 10k

Today I set my app for 10k. Heretofore I've done two 5k's back to back with about a minute of walking at the turn-around. Today I told myself I would run the full outbound leg and walk as needed on the homebound leg. I guess the carrot was mor... Read more

So. We're home from tripping the light fantastic in Big City. Today was weigh-in day. I've had to change my ticker. For the worse. It had been creeping up instead of slipping down, but 10 days away from strict eating and regular vigourous ... Read more

not a day for a drive

So. I *thought* we were driving home today after shopping and family visiting in the Big City. Not so. Didn't finish all the city shopping we had committed to do for DD so had to stay one more day. For a boy from the country, I'm getti... Read more

A good walk on the seawall

4.42km, 40 minutes, 16 min/mi. Sunny day, sea breeze, no seagulls able to unload accurately as they flew overhead, baristo coffee afterwards, good conversation. One restaurant meal, stayed within calorie limits, reasonable protein/carb/f... Read more

Thanks for your encouraging comments on yesterday's blog, Men : ) Feels good to be hitting all the SparkPeople highlights again: huddling, bombing at Trivia, squeezing each possible SparkPoint in an effort to break 100 daily points again... Read more
