To go the distance
I completed my first 2KM swim yesterday! 2KM!!!!! That's huge for me! I've been working on 1KMs for the past few weeks and have moved it up... and under an hour!
My concern is my running though. I have no problem running 2 or 3KM at ... Read more
Where for art thou you lost poundage?
Well, well, well. Isn't it nice to see you. Yes, that's right. You're no longer with me. Be it 20 lbs or a mere .6 lbs. I'd rather see you there than here. Yes... you were right here along side me, weren't you? So, what have you been doin... Read more
Triathlon #3 - You're kidding me! This is a race to look forward to?
Windsor Triathlon 2009 was, without a doubt, the worst event I've been to yet. Though they had to change the venue to Tecumseh, due to a long strike by workers with the City of Windsor, their 14 year record of this event was unbelievable.

By golly! If you have a chance to enter the Women's Triathlon in Kincardine, I strongly encourage it. The event was well-run! Aside from the 64 degree water temperature and the rain that appeared before the race, we had fabulous weather. The... Read more

Blog #2 of 2009
Well, I couldn't log on to Spark for the life of me for a good 24 hours (ugh!). But, I got here and remembered what fitness had taken place and have recorded it.

2009 is here!
My dear friend and I rung in the new year with a Resolution Run sponsored by the Running Room. It was friggin' cold! But, we did it!
We now have an 8-week fitness schedule that we're working on. Though nothing was scheduled today (everyt... Read more
Weigh In #1
Yes, my sister was right... I was wrong. I didn't realize that since my weigh in and measure back when I first registered at Spark (2006) obviously had changed and I should have re-measured.
Today - I've weighed in at 155 lbs. and all my m... Read more
I think I can... I think I can...
Golly gee whiz Beaver. It's amazing what a little motivation can do! Gee Wally, you're right! Once you get started, it's an easy road to run.
Translation. Did the second run tonight as per Spark's recommended training to run program. (3... Read more

Week number one completed (walk for 4 minutes, jog for 1 mi... Read more

It doesn't help that there was a time for take-out on Friday night. The his... Read more
Good night Monday. Thanks for everything.
Well, the weekend came and went. Fortunately the extra cardio allowed for extra calories. No, I didn't go overboard. I REALLY could have used a chocolate bar though. I actually turned down chips and something else. I guess it wasn't as impo... Read more
