Today I ran 11 miles, average heart rate 135, total time 2hrs. 31 min., avg. speed about 4.4 mph, slight improvement over last week. The weather was too cold for me taste and not as sunny as I had hoped. Afterwards I got pretty cold and tired an... Read more

I made a tracking mistake - this is annoying

Saturday, February 11, 2012      18 comments

When I tracked my food for 2 days in mid-January I did not check that all the macronutrients of the foods I listed had actually been recorded, big mistake! I found out that they were not. On one day I ate 3 cups of yogurt and my protein was low... Read more

Figure Skating day

I had so much fun today. My confidence at figure skating is growing. I'll never be as good as my daughter who is already working on several jumps after just a couple of months of lessons. But my balance is getting better and I'm working some leg... Read more

"Playing God" documentary - a few thoughts

Thursday, February 09, 2012      6 comments

I'll start by saying that this topic is really messing with my mind and my emotions. There are a lot of questions that it raises and it's hard to find any answers. I usually am fairly good in separating my emotions from my convictions on an issu... Read more

Wednesday, February 08, 2012      2 comments

I only had time for a short run of 3.3 miles today before it got dark. Average pulse was 134, average speed was 4.4 mph. I really did not feel like running today because it was wet outside and I felt a little tired. I'm glad I went anyhow. If el... Read more

Feeling great, no soreness from long run, chocolate almond cookies

Tuesday, February 07, 2012      7 comments

In spite of running 13 miles total yesterday I don't have any sore muscles and went ice skating for 2 hours today. I also walked dogs for about a half hour. As far as food I'm getting more in the habit of eating raw. If I cook vegetables I st... Read more

A great long run with low-carb breakfast and a half mint brownie

Monday, February 06, 2012      11 comments

I knew it was time for another long run today. This whole week I did not do that much running. It was partly difficult to find the time and my energy levels felt a little low so I only did a short mid-week run of about 3 miles. Since I knew th... Read more

This information could be critical to the well-being of millions of people. The message is "unbelievable" but it may be true. I'm copying a post I made in the spark group "Wheat Belly" earlier today: I just finished the book "Wheatbelly"... Read more

Wednesday, February 01, 2012      6 comments

I don't know if it was the weather, not enough veggies in the last 2 months since our garden hasn't been producing, the fact that I was exposed to my daughter's cold, dealing with the exposure to mercury from amalgam fillings as they are removed... Read more
