Lazy day - Really?

Friday, October 28, 2011      3 comments

I did not run for the second day in a row. I did feel lazy, but I know that I really did a lot of good things today including walking several dogs and celebrating the end of my daughter's swim season with a great party. So I'll just call it a bu... Read more

Rest Day and Rant

Thursday, October 27, 2011      3 comments

I ended up having to bathe one of the dogs and take it to the vet which took all my exercise time. It probably did not hurt to take a rest day because I woke up at 4:30 am and had trouble going back to sleep. Tonight my daughter and I attended... Read more

Tuesday, October 25, 2011      5 comments

I had not planned to buy more running shoes yesterday but when I saw that several Vibram models were on sale at a local store I decided to get a pair. I decided on the Sprint because of the combination of the thinner sole and the adjustable cr... Read more

A little tired today

Saturday, October 22, 2011      2 comments

This past week was busier than expected. I did get a run in on the treadmill but felt a little rushed because we had too many appointments. The run went well but my legs felt kind of heavy. The treadmill was set at incline of 2 . Average he... Read more

Rest Day

Thursday, October 20, 2011      4 comments

The meaning of the word rest day has changed for me over time. I did not run but only walked for about an hour but still walked up a hill that I would have considered fairly hard exercise a year ago. Tonight we are going out for Thai food, I'l... Read more

4 miles and 1 hour on the trail

Thursday, October 20, 2011      2 comments

I had a rest day planned for today but really felt like going out there. At this speed I don't seem to need rest days as often, maybe only once a week. I picked a route that had one steeper up and downhill section and one longer mild up and ... Read more

A trail run/walk/ride and a treadmill run plus some GOOD food

Tuesday, October 18, 2011      4 comments

Another beautiful fall day, and since I knew there won't be too many my daughter and I hit the trail, she on horseback and me on foot along with our whippet Sky. I probably did more walking than running but the view was great as we were going a... Read more

Trail run with dogs

Monday, October 17, 2011      2 comments

Today I took advantage of the sunny weather and spent about 2 hours trail running with the dogs. There were many interruptions, ranging from dogs charging at us to taking my shoes off and running barefoot for 10 minutes. The surfaces I ran on we... Read more

When I woke up this morning it was foggy with a light drizzle and the temperature was in the 40's. Because of the fog I mapped a route nearby of one mile which is about 1/3 asphalt and 2/3 gravel. I decided to do my run in the morning today wh... Read more

Rest is half the progress

Sunday, October 16, 2011      2 comments

I decided to take a rest day today. I did exercise four days in a row and am looking forward to taking an outdoor run tomorrow. Today my muscles were a little sore from the uphill walking. I spent some more time thinking about stress and wh... Read more

Long slow walk

Friday, October 14, 2011      1 comments

Today I thought about taking a rest day but by afternoon I really felt like some more exercise than the dog walking I had done in the morning. I decided to do some uphill walking on the treadmill and it turned into my "long, slow walk" rather ... Read more

A ride and a run

Friday, October 14, 2011      2 comments

Today I started the day with a trail ride through the harvested wheat fields. Together with a friend we let our horses climb the hills in perfect fall weather, around 55-60 degrees F. My resting pulse was still up to 70 this morning. Just f... Read more

Second MAF test

Wednesday, October 12, 2011      1 comments

I had originally planned to do an uphill walking MAF test today because walking is what I do on my non-running days. I started this morning by taking my resting pulse which was 68, a little on the high side, normal is about 60 for me. When ... Read more
