My iPod hates me
Tuesday, April 19, 2011      10 comments

Well, sometimes it feels that way. Which is so wrong, because I love my iPod! Now, keep in mind that I sometimes run without it, too. Cause one way to learn how to pace yourself is to truly tune unto your body - how hard you're breathing, i... Read more
How full should you be?

First, thanks to everyone who weighed in on my HM dilemma. I will probably go for both, altho registration doesn't open for over a month, and just pray that I don't hate HMs! On to today's subject. I remember reading, in a couple of differe... Read more
2 HMs, 2 1/2 months, 2 much?
Sunday, April 17, 2011      10 comments

So now I have a bit of a dilemma. 2 of my good spark buddies decided to run the Las Vegas HM on Dec. 4. I had already pretty much decided to run the Austin HM next Feb. 19, with the potential to meet up with a few more good spark buddies then. ... Read more
Why treadmill running can be good
Saturday, April 16, 2011      9 comments

When I run on my treadmill, it's in the comfort of my own home & while watching something I've recorded, so it isn't so boring. And that is why, at the moment, I use the treadmill for my long runs. Actually, there are a few other reasons: ... Read more

So there I'm blogging bout my disappearing buddies (and some stil have really fallen off the radar) & then I go missing - but here's what I did yesterday: 10 minutes yoga Fed myself, the animals & got breakfast ready for DH Walked the d... Read more
You know you're addicted when . . .

. . . you want to title a blog "hurts so good". I ease up one week a month - no running, lighter ST. And I also take it easy before a race. Only lately I've been signing up for my races about a week ahead of time instead of uber-planning as... Read more
For the joy of it
Tuesday, April 12, 2011      5 comments

It's a secret kids know, but as adults we forget it: we move around - or should - for the pure joy of it. Altho frankly, other than walking & swimming, I didn't want to move around a whole lot even as a kid - I was the one with her nose constant... Read more
Could egg whites be the secret?
Monday, April 11, 2011      5 comments

Sorry, I know this will gross out my vegan friends. I'm not even a huge fan of eggs . . . oddly enough I've never found them to be very filling. I try mostly to eat really whole foods - full fat cheese, whole eggs, chicken with the skin in - tha... Read more
Deer, & squirrels, & Delmar Dash (race report), oh my!
Sunday, April 10, 2011      16 comments

It truly was just a picture perfect day to race. Temp approximately 50ish, partly cloudy. I had to leave before 8 & even that turned out to be cutting it a bit close with the lines for the bathroom, so it was a busy morning taking the dogs out, ... Read more
When the stars align - running thoughts
Saturday, April 09, 2011      6 comments

Sometimes that's how life feels - things just seem to come together (of course, sometimes the opposite is true). Tomorrow I have a 5 mile race - my longest to date. It's been a whole year of PRs cause each race has been longer than the last... Read more
Will it pass the husband taste test?
Thursday, April 07, 2011      9 comments

So I already tried out a couple of the recipes from the ecookbook in yesterday's article - very disappointing. I suspect I'll be asking for my money back, but I'll give it a couple of weeks. Which is the nice thing about these offers - they real... Read more
A different take on food combining

I didn't plan yesterday's blog. I didn't really know what the heck I was going to blog about. But the more I think about it, it really just makes so much sense. Yes, of course, I wish I'd pushed thru this plateau a long time ago. OTOH, this is p... Read more
Plateau - finding a sustainable diet?
Tuesday, April 05, 2011      11 comments

I have gained weight this week - I can feel it in my clothes. As always, it's frustrating, because while I know I haven't eaten as well as I could have, I also know that supposedly it takes 3500 extra calories to gain 1 pound. The weeks I eat mo... Read more
April showers with a vengeance
Monday, April 04, 2011      6 comments

It's going to be one of my rambling blogs - you've been warned! It was a really nice weekend, weather-wise & otherwise. Yes, it was chilly & VERY windy, but it was also sunny & not snowing, so that was good! Even warm enough to just sit out... Read more
Practice what you preach - rest!
Saturday, April 02, 2011      9 comments

I like to take a week off from running every month. I feel it actually helps me come back fresher. I still exercise, I just don't run. I usually go much lighter on weight training on the weeks I don't run, too. The idea is that you shouldn'... Read more
