Hauling hay and ice skating

Sunday, November 13, 2011      2 comments

This was definitely a non-cardio day. I can't quite call it a strength training day because we only moved hay for about 1/2 hour. In the afternoon I had a skating lesson and started learning single-foot spins. I'm pretty tickled by the fact t... Read more

A final run before the snow hits

Friday, November 11, 2011      3 comments

I was hoping to do a long run today. We got delayed a little trying to set up my husband's new heart rate monitor. So my long run was only slightly longer than my regular runs, 5.1 miles with several steeper hills. It was amazing to see that... Read more

2 rest days and an appeal to get involved

Thursday, November 10, 2011      0 comments

Two rest days in a row is not what I had planned but I had no time for running these last two days. I did manage to get an hour of walking in with the dogs and some of it turned into jogging. I'll plan my long run for tomorrow. For those o... Read more

A perfect day

Saturday, November 05, 2011      2 comments

I had a lot of good things happen today. It was one of those things you can't predict. I took my daughter to swim practice in the morning with the intention to run at the gym because the temps were in the mid 20's at 8 am. The gym wasn't open s... Read more

Ice Skating and Walking

Thursday, November 03, 2011      3 comments

The heart rate monitor stayed at home today. I spent an hour practicing with my new ice skates. I haven't owned ice skates since I was a kid and used rental skates only a few times since. I loved getting back into skating. For the first time ... Read more

2 workouts and lots of stuff about shoes and feet

Tuesday, November 01, 2011      5 comments

I went for a walk/jog with the dogs in the morning for a total of one hour with my average pulse at 120. It was nice to be able to run the downhill parts to practice my balance and rhythm. This afternoon I did 4 miles on the treadmill. As u... Read more

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

Well at least by my standards I'm running faster than I'm walking. emoticon treadmill was at incline of 2, avg. hea... 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
