July ROCKSTAR Challenge Plan
I just realized that I never posted my ROCKSTAR challenge plan! This challenge is one that was issued on Facebook by a fellow sparker, and I planned to post my plan here on Spark in order to stay accountable here, as well as on FB. I started t... Read more
I think I might've been tired!
Yesterday, for the 2nd day in a row, I developed a MASSIVE headache at work. And nothing helped it to ease off.
When I got home from work, just before 2:00, I headed straight to the bedroom, changed into my comfy clothes, and turned on Net... Read more

SORE! But that's a good thing!
Yesterday, I decided that I have been slacking (again!!) on the strength training. Since I got to a point with my knee injury that I was able to really start picking up the running mileage again, I started neglecting the weights.

Not feeling so great today
I stayed up too late again last night. I do every Tuesday night. I don't have a DVR (or cable, for that matter) so if I want to watch "The Voice", I have to stay up or wait and watch it online. I stayed up. So, of course, I overslept this mo... Read more
I can't believe it's been almost a week since I blogged! Wow!
We did end up going to Wild Adventures on Saturday, and I didn't have time to get my long run in, but we had a BLAST! It would've been more fun if we had gotten there earlier, but... Read more
I sucked it up and went to the track last night.
It was hot, but not unbearable.
Tommy didn't show up (haven't heard yet why....) but he had posted the workout on the running club's forum just in case he didn't make it... I knew what ne... Read more
Der Coachen is back....
It's been an interesting day. LOTS of work to be done that has me irritated because when other people don't feel like doing their job it gets pushed down the chain. UGH! BUT, I am trying to make the best of it, at least I have something to ke... Read more

Saturday morning, I got up at 5am. I decided to go back to the group long runs at Dunkin Donuts. I haven't been in almost a year, and really ne... Read more
I have been really slack about blogging lately. I am going to try to do better! Not that I ever really have anything "earth-shattering" to say, but it DOES keep me accountable.
Yesterday, I was scheduled to run 3 miles. I did my run on ... Read more
