Thursday, June 18, 2015      1 comments

Wow! My legs really felt weak trying to run today. I'm sure it was because of using the ankle weights yesterday. A sign that they are doing more work than what they are used to doing. With that and the high humidity I had to keep my 4 mile run a... Read more

Wednesday, June 17, 2015      3 comments

Had another good 2 mile run today. I completed the full distance jogging without a walk break again. My pace was 12:54. That is a lot slower than my Monday 2 mile, however there is a good reason. Today, at the suggestion of my DH, I added 1# an... Read more

It's been a rough and challenging beginning for my 10K training. Despite everything, I only missed one planned WO in the first week. Today was a 6 mile easy jog/walk. It ended up being very humid and I wasn't sure I would complete the distance... Read more

For the most part I was able to stay with my plans for today. Some minor adjustments in eating. At Red Lobster I did eat a whole cheddar biscuit, but I didn't eat the croutons on the salad. Later we were with a group that was serving Chicago sty... Read more

The past couple of weeks have been hard for me. A week ago we had my Dad's memorial service on Sat. and family reunion on Sun. It was a good but emotional weekend. One of the things I noticed was how many people were dealing with some type of p... Read more
