Ran 3 miles today, feeling good

Thursday, September 03, 2015      2 comments

My left Achilles tendon has been less happy lately (in the past it was my right tendon that was the biggest problem), but it's still way less sore than it was when I first started running again. So if keeping it under control just means a lot m... Read more

Ran 3.6 Today and an Interesting Update for Work

Wednesday, September 02, 2015      2 comments

My laptop battery is really low. I’m going to have to save frequently if I expect to keep from losing this blog. I’m sitting at the kids’ gymnastics lesson right now. This is my typical Monday and Wednesday night. Today I went fo... Read more

Good Weigh-In, as predicted

Tuesday, September 01, 2015      4 comments

Today’s weigh-in was good. I weighed 193.6. I didn’t do sit-ups last night, just pushups. So tonight I’ll do them. I don’t know exactly where I’ll be for the fitness test, but luckily I don’t really need to do great this time. N... Read more

'Nother Run

Sunday, August 30, 2015      1 comments

I ran this morning with my women’s group. But because we had a walker and the group isn’t willing to split up, one of the women who’d run 5 miles yesterday walked with her and the other two of us ran back and forth between the other two wo... Read more

Ran a hill

Saturday, August 29, 2015      3 comments

I was kind of tired yesterday and it was so incredibly hot so I decided not to run or work out and just take the day off. This morning I got up at about 0600 and it wasn’t too hot yet so I headed out. I went 2.1 miles and the first .8 was str... Read more

3.8 mile slow run, uniform getting less tight

Thursday, August 27, 2015      3 comments

I ran with the women’s group this morning. 0500. I was slower today than last time. But I did 3.8 miles which was a recent distance record. But I did it in a 12+ min/mile. I started out fine, but lost some speed as the run went on. I als... Read more

Back to Running

Tuesday, August 25, 2015      2 comments

I ran again today (first run after Thursday’s sprained ankle scare). Just a mile and a half in the morning. My time was about 20 seconds slower than last time. I think it was probably the humidity though. Way more humid today (raining in pa... Read more

On track today, my saboteur, incline walk (getting back in the saddle)

Sunday, August 23, 2015      3 comments

Today was a good day again. No pain in the ankle, I was on track with food. At the end of the day I was low on calories and protein and I still had some room for fat as well, so I thought about what I had available that fit that bill. I decid... Read more

Ankle Roller Coaster

Saturday, August 22, 2015      3 comments

I created a blog last night that was lost in a posting error. I hate those. I usually write my blogs in Word and then copy/paste, but I was on my new laptop and just didn't bother. Mistake. I’ve been on an emotional roller coaster wi... Read more

Great run, twisted ankle, hopeful and doing fine

Thursday, August 20, 2015      1 comments

[9:00 am] This morning I ran with a women’s running group (Moms Run This Town) at 4:45 am. That gave me time to run, then return home in time to wake up my daughter for school, shower, get her ready to go, and get out of the house on time (6:... Read more

Great Day Today: Reports on Incline Walk, Run, and Food

Wednesday, August 19, 2015      1 comments

Today I went out to just run the 1.5 miles I have to do for Air Force Fitness tests. I test again in October. I’m required to run the 1.5 in less than 18:14 or I fail the test. It pays to be old. I’m 43 so I get to run slower than the 20... Read more

Today's struggle (food) & a 5K in October!

Wednesday, August 19, 2015      5 comments

[10am] Today's struggle: Sticking to food plan. I was right on yesterday, which I'm very proud of. And I didn't get hungry. I keep a variety of food in a mini-fridge next to my desk and I've got some non-perishables in the bottom drawer of my ... Read more

Coming back from long-term injury

Monday, August 17, 2015      6 comments

Oh boy. Way too much to talk about right now. I’ve been MIA, and when I’m MIA it doesn’t mean good things. My weight is now back up to 198 (I’d hit 200 a few weeks ago. That was awful. It was a number I’d never expected to see aga... Read more

I didn't go away.

Very busy couple of weeks. I went to Hawaii on military transport on Nov 22nd. It was a fun trip. But I definitely drank a few too many umbrella drinks. Id planned on just having one or two the entire trip, but I didnt stick to that. As a... Read more
