Slow, hot, nasty run. Didn't log my food
I ran about 3 miles this morning and it took me way too long to do it. I forgot my phone and I didn't take my Garmin, so I don't know the exact distance. I do know that I ran for about 49 minutes. We went out at 5:00am. It was the same route... Read more
Stressed Achilles, but turns out I'm okay
I bought a couple Achilles tendon bands that I wore yesterday when I ran. Turns out that's what made me sore. While they have really great reviews, and they fixed countless people, it turns out all those countless people are experiencing their... Read more
HOT!!!! Tough runs, massage
Oh my holy heck it's hot!! HOT!!! It's 106 degrees today. It never went below 74 degrees last night. So my 5am run was at 74 degrees. That's not bad, I'm not complaining about that, but it's usually in the upper 50s or 60s or something.

4.5 mile run, 40 mins of trampoline, new shoes
I started this morning with a 4.5 mile run around the loop. I started later than I'd have liked, it was kind of hot. Our temperatures are soaring again. It wasn't too bad, but I definitely stuck to the sides of the road that had the most shad... Read more
3 mile run, and starting a C25K session for someone
This was a slower run. We had a woman in our group who stopped to walk a bit, so we'd slow down or run backwards while talking. So final pace was about a 13 min/mile. But since I know I could run faster, I'm totally good with it.
The gro... Read more
Ran 4.7 miles, Recent Record
This is my first blog thumb-typed on my phone. We'll see if it posts to my page like other blogs.
This morning I woke up and decided to run a big loop around my neighborhood. I didn't remember exactly how long it was but thought it was around ... Read more
Ran 3 miles today, feeling good
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
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 for a ru... Read more
Good Weigh-In, as predicted
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. Normally I ge... Read more
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 women an... Read more
Ran a hill
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 strai... Read more
3.8 mile slow run, uniform getting less tight
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 also ... Read more
Back to Running
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 part... Read more
On track today, my saboteur, incline walk (getting back in the saddle)
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
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 with... Read more
