Easy walking day
Tuesday, November 01, 2011      1 comments

I felt slightly stiff and tired most of the day so limited my exercise to a couple of walks with the dogs. The wind was cold but the sun was out part of the time. I also enjoyed some time at the horse barn watching the horses run around chasin... Read more
Back to my water shoes
Sunday, October 30, 2011      2 comments

Last night I got to bed around 2 in the morning and then woke up today at 8. I went for a 4 mile run in my water shoes this afternoon and ran the same road as 2 days ago in the Vibrams. I did stumble once, so it may have had something to do ... Read more
Long Run in Vibrams
Friday, October 28, 2011      3 comments

Well, ok, it wasn't really that long, 90 minutes and 6.2 miles. This is the longest run I've done since I've started the Maffetone method and probably since my last half-marathon. I ran on a chip-sealed road and had a significant uphill and a... Read more
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

Review of Vibram Sprint
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
First outdoor run with heart rate monitor (HRM)
Sunday, October 16, 2011      1 comments

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
