It's a conspiracy

Friday, December 19, 2014      1 comments

It's a conspiracy I've decided. I have lost my running mojo. It's been gone for well over a year now. At this point I am faking it until I make it. Signed up for a half marathon in March. My usual race to celebrate my birthday, but I have been w... Read more

Blatant plagiarism today...

Saturday, September 03, 2011      1 comments

Not an original post, but today's Health Reflection resonated with me... Are you grateful for the luxuries in your life? "Even if you've never seen it, you are probably aware of the CBS reality show "Survivor"--16 castaways sent to liv... Read more

Not a race report, yet

Saturday, March 26, 2011      0 comments

It's been quite the wild ride this week, post-marathon. I have felt everything from elation to the depths of despair. I hope to get my thoughts together to summarize the 6 plus hours I was running, sometime this weekend. Oh, and there will be pi... Read more

This is it!

Saturday, March 19, 2011      3 comments

The day before my first marathon...wow, I never thought it would get here and now that it is, I am little disappointed. Yes, disappointed. I kinda like the anticipation leading up to the event and soon, it will be in the past. I tend to over-thi... Read more

Pre-Marathon Depression?

Friday, March 04, 2011      2 comments

Is it possible to have this? I completed my last LSD of 20 miles last Saturday and I am really down in the dumps this week. I had a great run Saturday. Felt fantastic, recovered great and was only a little sore for Sunday's 3 mile walk. But Mon... Read more

How not to recover from a 6 mile run

Sunday, January 09, 2011      2 comments

Step 1: Start drinking recovery drink as soon as you get back to car (off to a good start). Step 2: Think about stretching, but instead visit (commiserate actually) with other runners returning from run (otherwise known as hell on the canal... Read more

week 12 of marathon training ends

Saturday, December 25, 2010      1 comments

Week 12 was uneventful. I ran a slow 3.5 miles earlier this week. I wanted to get in another 3 miles Thursday night, but walked 2 miles with the dog instead. Life just got in the way this week. My long run of 9 to 10 miles will be tomorrow inst... Read more

In the swim again

Thursday, December 23, 2010      0 comments

I finally got back in the pool tonight after about a month of no swimming. Every time I start swimming again I realize how much I miss it and wonder why I allow things to keep me out of the water. At least this time I can't beat myself up too mu... Read more

Week 11 of marathon training ends on a high note!

Sunday, December 19, 2010      2 comments

Yes, in spite of missing almost 2 weeks of training I ran 9 miles yesterday and feel pretty darned good today! Plus my right leg is not hurting like it was before I got sick. So I am optimistic about completing the marathon in March. And I know... Read more

week 10 of marathon training...is a bust

Friday, December 10, 2010      3 comments

Yes, week 10 is a bust. I only ran a mile Monday night and walked another 2 1/2 because my form was crap due to my right quad refusing to cooperate. And to pile on to that, I am sick. Much sicker than I thought apparently, as I sit here and sta... Read more

week 9 of marathon training-and some rambling too.

Thursday, December 02, 2010      3 comments

This week isn't much better than last week, injury-wise. That darned right quad is still giving me fits. Only ran 2x last week, Monday night and Saturday morning. The positive is that I can run 3 miles without walking, it is my new 'easy' workou... Read more

week 8 of marathon training

Wednesday, November 24, 2010      0 comments

Week 8 isn't starting off so great. I have pulled a quad muscle and I can't run, I can barely walk. I actually didn't do anything last night, no running, no walking, no swimming. That is the first workout I have missed since week 2 I think. ... Read more

week 7 of marathon training

Thursday, November 18, 2010      0 comments

This week we stepped up to trying to run 40 minutes non-stop during our training runs. Monday night I did it! I ran 3.25 miles in a little over 40 minutes. Not blazing fast, but I ran non-stop the farthest and longest I ever have. So I was reall... Read more

week 6 of marathon training

Tuesday, November 09, 2010      2 comments

I finally felt decent running last night (well, it was a slow jog). The first mile was actually nice. I wasn't out of breath and just praying for it to be over. This is a great development. I am scheduled to run 25 minutes 4 times this week. B... Read more

week 5 of marathon training

Tuesday, November 02, 2010      5 comments

I ran a 5k this last weekend, non stop! The first time in who-knows-how-long! 3 miles! I am very excited. This marathon thing may not be just a dream. It is amazing the sense of accomplishment I have from achieving that small goal (small comp... Read more
