Trail running/walking and rest , watching swim team practice

Wednesday, June 20, 2012      2 comments

Yesterday I went on one of the first trail runs this year. The course is about the length of a 5 K and it's a more technical, mostly single-track trail through the woods. The first part is gradually increasing uphill and took me 23 minutes, the ... Read more

I did my running on an outside track today and started with running 1 mile in shoes, followed by 2 miles barefoot. I did not wear my heart rate monitor but think my pulse was around 130-134. I needed about 40 minutes for 3 miles so speed was aro... Read more

The date is September 9, but when I subtract the taper at the end I have only 10 weeks to get ready. I'm planning on the Moscow Mountain Madness in Idaho. I ran (well partially walked) it last year, a hilly course with lots of elevation change t... Read more

My first "speed" workout

Wednesday, June 13, 2012      9 comments

I decided now that my weight is close to ideal at 131 lbs. , my eating habits allow my body to feed my muscle cells rather than my fat cells, and my running form as well as my endurance base are established there is no reason not to start a litt... Read more

Whose eating "gluten-free" foods?

Saturday, May 26, 2012      14 comments

Well, you may want to rethink that. Regardless if you are trying to avoid wheat, gluten, or insulin spikes, so-called gluten-free foods are a really bad idea. In his blog of 5/22/12 Dr. Davis, the author of "Wheatbelly" explains why: w... Read more

Playing with our food - a really weird dinner

Friday, May 25, 2012      10 comments

Today we ate the strangest dinner I've had in a long time. I did not feel like cooking so I pulled out a bunch of things that were relatively low-carb and we had a Sushi-making party. We don't usually eat Sushi, definitely not the type with raw ... Read more

Low-carb - a lifestyle to enjoy the benefits, not a diet

Wednesday, May 23, 2012      14 comments

I was reminded several times this past week how many people still think of eating low-carb or eating primal, paleo, ancestral etc. as a diet, something that we do temporarily until the extra weight is lost. But of course as soon as people go ... Read more

Hard workout - almost like a stress test

Monday, May 21, 2012      4 comments

I've been eating low-carb for a while now with just a few exceptions (usually consuming sugar and/or a few non-gluten grains). So I thought it was time to see how my body's ability to exercise has changed. Unfortunately I forgot my heart rate ... Read more

Weight all over the place

My weight has been ranging from 132 lbs. to 137 lbs. this week. Part of it seems to be the time of year. My weight always goes down when the weather gets warm and up when the weather gets cold. I'm curious to see how my weight is going to change... Read more

I wanted to thank everyone who commented on yesterday's blog. I'm still thinking about some of the comments but am short on time so won't be able to comment, yet. My use of time is not sustainable for sure. Read more

Ramblings on sustainability - opening a can of worms

Wednesday, May 09, 2012      6 comments

This is a HUGE topic and has kept me thinking for a while. And I'm only starting to scratch the surface. Sustainability is defined very differently by different people. It is linked to population numbers (global and local), political interest... Read more

I ate some bread yesterday

Sunday, May 06, 2012      16 comments

This was not the kind of bread that most people eat in this country. And it did not contain any wheat. This bread was a sourdough bread made from only rye, sourdough and salt. Some of the rye was ground, some was steel-cut or even a few whole be... Read more
