This was not a good summer. My father-in-law died and we spent two months with my mother-in-law getting her situated and helping my sister-in-law move to another state. Needless to say my running ceased and my eating habits went down the tube ... Read more

Tuesday, May 07, 2013      0 comments

Today was a 1/2 mile run, 1/4 mile walk, 3/4 mile run, 1/4 mile walk, 1/2 mile run. It went well. I knew that it was going to be no big deal to do the run intervals after Saturday's run. So I decided that during the first 1/2 mile I was going... Read more

Saturday was 2 straight miles. I went for 1.32 miles and then I had to walk briskly for a few feet before finishing the run. My feet were dragging and I needed the short break for my legs to recoup. I estimated that my walking break was about... Read more

Last Thursday I did two 3/4 mile intervals. I surprised myself during the first interval because I went about 2 mins faster than my pace has been these past couple of weeks. The second interval I was closer to what my normal pace is. Ro... Read more

There was a thunderstorm yesterday morning so I didn't run and decided to do Turbo Jam: 20-min Jam. I wasn't sure if I'd run in the evening or not and I didn't want to risk not doing anything at all. I was really bummed out because I was looki... Read more

Nothing exciting. Another run. My average pace went up a bit but I'm not worried about that so much as making the distance. I didn't have to battle any negative self talk today, that was nice. I am learning to listen to my body and go at a c... Read more

Yesterday I didn't get much or good quality sleep so it's a wonder I even got out of bed. Let me tell you, there was a lot of head talk about putting off the run for later in the day. I didn't give in though, I got out there and did it even th... Read more

Nothing exciting to report. I fought through the negative talk and went out and did it. I was conscious of my pace and kept it comfortable and surprised myself by finding that it was faster than on Thursday. I noticed that I lean forward when... Read more

Wk 3 Day 1 So I decided to repeat week 3. Day 1 was tough mentally. I kept thinking that I wasn't going to be able to do this and to keep up with the program. I had to tell myself nonsense, I've already completed week 3 once I can do it aga... Read more

This morning was rough. I made the mistake of going to bed at midnight. My 18 month old woke up at 4:25am and I let him in bed with us where he proceeded to axe kick me in the face with his eyes closed. I couldn't really tell if he was sleepi... Read more

I did not have a good start today... -My 18 month old decided at about 4:45 am that he was unhappy with the world and so I brought him into bed expecting him to snuggle up and sleep. Nope, he proceeded to pinch and poke me with his toes. ... Read more

Wk2 Day 2: It was a tough run. I had fatigue in my thighs but I highly suspect that was due to having done Brazilian Butt Lift: High and Tight the day before. My distance and pace was a little slower than than Day 1 of this week but I finish... Read more
