It's Official: My first sub-30 minute 5K!
In the past few weeks, I've been able in training to get my 5K time under 30 minutes, but today was the big day -- my first official, chipped 5K race! And to add a little intrigue to this race, it was in Tucson, AZ, which is 1/2 mile above sea ... Read more
12/07/2012 in Arizona
Always a pleasure to be in Arizona -- warm temps, sunny skies, etc. Today is my dad's 81st birthday, and we have a few things planned:
- Lunch plans at a retirement community he is thinking he may move to . It is a very nice place, and I ... Read more
Another BIG Goal Acheived...
Finally broke the 5K in under 30 minute barrier this morning -- 29:55!! Not much more to add, except to say I am one happy camper!!
A good week...
Last day on my business trip in RTP, NC. I am very proud of how I kept an eye on the calories and what I ate, kept up with my exercise routine (albeit at a MUCH earlier time of the day!), and overall feel great! I will sleep well tonight I thi... Read more
Midweek Report (on the road)
So far so good on my business trip this week. At midweek, but still following my plan:
- Up at 5:00AM each day, in the workout room by 6:00AM. Had to deviate from my normal workout routine a little yesterday, as both treadmills were busy,... Read more
On the road again...
So far so good on my business trip. Flight from Philadelphia to Raleigh on time and actually arrived early into Raleigh, nice dinner (and reasonably healthy) at the hotel last evening, up at 5AM to get a workout in (state of the art equipment!)... Read more
Preparing for first business trip in 6 1/2 years...
While my DW and I have traveled a few times since I had my WLS last year, I will be taking my first solo trip next week, and a business trip on top of it. While I'm not trying to obsess about it, I am doing a fair amount of planning, such as ma... Read more
Normally Mondays can be crazy, but since I have some vacation to use up before the end of the year, I started taking some Mondays off, and in some ways they are nicer to take off than a Friday.
Caught up on my shows on DVR, will go do som... Read more
We survived Sandy! We did end up getting over 8" of rain, as forecasted, but we were spared the really bad winds that folks in NJ, PA, and NY got -- peak wind gust was around 60 mph. For those of you who are professional or amateur meteorologi... Read more
Sandy has made her presence felt last evening and into this morning. Over 3" of rain so far, with the forecast of up to 8" possible. Amazingly enough, that amount of rain would still not get us back to "normal" for the year -- we are close to ... Read more
GOAL ACHEIVED! First sub-30 minute 3 mile run!
What a great sight to see:
After toying for the past few weeks with breaking the 30 minute / 3 mile barrier, I finally did it today! As I posted on Facebook, nothin... Read more
A few things that have happened in the past few days will keep me motivated to continue pushing to better health:
- Weight: 181.6 at home, scale at the Dr office was 182, pretty much splitting hairs. Goal is 179. I do like the scale ay m... Read more
I'm sure I'm speaking for LOTS of SP'ers, but I sure do love a good weigh-in!!
Today's weigh-in: 181.6!! Nearly a 3 pound loss since my last weigh-in, and more importantly, that puts me 2.6 pounds away from my goal weight of 179! The "ma... Read more
Feeling much better today...
Not sure exactly what it was, but definitely felt out of sorts yesterday (Sunday). Was clearly sore from mowing on Saturday (did all of the back yard, which is close to an acre), was not thrilled with the colder air that moved in, and in spite ... Read more
Why is it not good to skip a meal!
Yesterday (Friday) was one of those crazy good days...worked in the AM, then as soon as I finished a conference call at noon, we packed the dogs in the minivan and headed to the beach. We were in such a rush that I forgot to get some lunch, whi... Read more
