Following my training plan, today is a day off from both running and biking. My legs say: THANK YOU!
I may go for a nice, long walk. And I should do some toning today. I've been neglecting that.
I've been really dedicated to running an... Read more
I used to be very good at finding any excuse to not exercise. Too busy, too tired, too whatever. Lately, though, I prioritize exercise before almost everything else.
Yesterday, after my busy weekend, including a 41-mile bike ride, I was st... Read more
Sometimes you just have to recognize when you are too busy. I overbooked my weekend. it was all good -- volunteer activities, social time, and workouts. By the time all my planned events were done on Sunday, I was completely exhausted. I napped ... Read more
My biking "coach" (really just a friend who is a way more serious biker than me) advised me to add 5 miles to my long ride every week. So today I set out to ride about 35 miles on a local bike trail. Two friends went with me.
Overall, it wa... Read more
I'm slowly making a comeback from my calf injury. Tonight I ran 6 minutes, walked 1, repeated for a total of 30 minutes. It seems almost too easy to bounce back! (Thank God!) In the past when I've restarted, it seems like I restarted from the be... Read more
We took another mini-vacation, this time to Duluth. Much fun! Much food! Oh Lordy, I do eat too much on vacation. BUT -- my one saving grace -- I exercised!
I ran two mornings, mainly because my travel companions slept in, so I really didn... Read more

Without going into too much gory detail, things got really ugly 2 days ago, pretty much right after my last blog. We've had some underlying stress for sever... Read more
Yesterday I went out for breakfast at Perkins. My meal included a muffin, which I took to go. (Can you imagine eating an omelet PLUS potatoes/fruit PLUS a muffin???) I ate the omelet (minus hollandaise!) and fruit and saved the muffin for later... Read more
Forgot to blog again last night... did I mention I'm trying to blog every day during the month of June? Trying!
I biked to work today. 7.5 miles one way. And home again. 15.72 miles total. And it was 95 degrees today. I loooo... Read more
Today.... I will admit it..... I shed some tears.
I asked my family (husband and two teenaged boys) if they wanted to go for a bike ride. No. How about a hike? No. My husband shot back with: "It's incredibly humid today. I don't want to do... Read more
