I felt much better today! I did 60 minutes on the elliptical today. It came to 4.3 miles. Tomorrow is a "rest" day so only a 30 minute walk. Hopefully, the weather and my body will make it a run day on Wednesday.
Thanks for all the positiv... Read more
I may be hitting my limit.
Today was a scheduled long run of 18 miles. I was up, dressed and ready to go, but it's not going to happen. Chills, sweats, a headache, and finally a temperature check and a 99.6 degree reading, is changing my rest day. I just feel poopy and ti... Read more

In my last blog I was optimistic. This one will not be as positive. To put it bluntly, I am frustrated. I have been training for some high goals for early spring. I am going to do a 1/2 Ironman (indoor) the end of February and a 50 mile "race" t... Read more
Ever changing body.
I am 50. It's a fact of life and for the most part, I am happy to be 50. I know too many people that didn't make it to my age.
However, this ever changing body is perplexing. Depending on what I eat I can gain and lose 3-4 lbs. in one day.... Read more

Ability to say no.
I'm doing well on my exercise. I ran 4 miles last Saturday and 10 on Sunday. I'm getting at least 12,000 steps in a day. However, today's devotional hit home in regards to food. Help me remain confident in You and to be able to say no.

Yesterday my running buddies were all running on Market to Market relays. So I did what every every crazy person training for a 50k does, I ran 20 miles. If anyone would have told me, years ago, that I'd run 20 miles, just because, I would have ... Read more
