Novice Pair

Sunday, April 10, 2011      13 comments

Kahlua and I ran some this morning. During the warm up walk one of my neighbors rolled down his car window and asked me who was winning. I realized he was commenting on the tugging I was doing at that moment. But 80% of the time she walked very... Read more

May Have a New Running Partner

Saturday, April 09, 2011      12 comments

We added a new member to our family today. She's 8 months old -- a German shepherd and labrador mix. She's really sweet, but a little skiddish. We are her third family, so she's been through a bit. With DH being home all day and our 1/2 acre fen... Read more

Things Change....

Thursday, April 07, 2011      12 comments

I was just remembering my "home ec" class in high school and the lessons we learned about nutrition. I remember going home and telling my mom we needed to consume the liquid off the canned veggies. Her response was lukewarm at best. In school we... Read more

Day before yesterday I put it in my status. I set a goal to beat my personal record for the fastest mile on my treadmill. My previous fastest (that I paid attention to anyway) was a 10 minute mile. I was aiming for a 9.5 minute mile. I really th... Read more

Saturday I decided since I plan to keep running that I might as well invest in what I need. I bought the shoe inserts to help cushion my high arch. I was having a little bit of cramping around the arch area and thought it might help. Yesterday w... Read more

Running On

Tuesday, March 29, 2011      8 comments

I finished a women's running book by Galloway and his wife. He is the one who recommends walking breaks in with the running. I'm kind of trying that method. My four mile run this morning had 30 seconds of walk break about every 5 minutes. I made... Read more

Run and Be Active

Monday, March 28, 2011      8 comments

I read a running article today that was eye opening. It cited a study of women runners over the age of 50. It found that older women runners only burned 80 calories more per day than women the same age who were non-runners. They attributed it to... Read more

It is true! I found it on the web site. I came in third in my age group in my 5K race. I don't know that I want that fact to change anything and yet I am unabashedly an award junkie. Yesterday, I bought two running books. This morning I tried a ... Read more
