Getting Ready and Unexpected Challenge

Thursday, June 23, 2011      13 comments

I am getting ready for my 5K on Saturday. I've chosen my clothes, washed my running socks, trimmed my toe nails, checked my glasses, etc. I ran Tuesday and took a long walk today. Plan a short elliptical session tomorrow. I still have just a tou... Read more

Overreacting and Undereating

Wednesday, June 22, 2011      12 comments

This morning I was down 3.8 pounds from my weigh in yesterday. After overeating a little bit 2 days in a row, I really cut back. It worked. Only, it would have been healthier to have eaten at least 1200 calories (29 Weight Watcher pointsplus) ye... Read more

Missing Annie

Sunday, June 19, 2011      16 comments

WalkingAnnie was one of the wisest and most inspiring SparkFriends I ever had. She researched issues related to weight and fitness, especially appropriate for us who are making changes after years of poor eating habits. Her blogs were full of he... Read more

Good Workout Today

Saturday, June 18, 2011      7 comments

Enjoyed a warm up walk with my SparkTeam this morning at a local air conditioned mall. Then I ran two miles without problem. When I'm running I don't even think about my lower back, although it is still bothering me if I turn or bend suddenly. T... Read more

Now I Know

Thursday, June 16, 2011      17 comments

It's a mild injury. Now I know. I am still hopeful that I'll be able to runthe 5K on June 25th. I'm not going to get in all my training runs so my time may not be as good as it might have been. In the big picture, though, I don't think this lit... Read more

Wish I Knew

Tuesday, June 14, 2011      12 comments

Sure wish I knew whether it is muscle soreness and nothing to worry about, or whether I strained something in my lower back and ought to rest. I'm backing off of strength training of core and legs for now. I did a treadmill workout today, but on... Read more

I'm An Athlete

Friday, June 10, 2011      13 comments

I only signed up for Facebook to get SparkPoints, but was happy that it reconnected me to quite a few old friends. I posted the picture of me finishing the first 2011 Watermelon Series 5K. A person who has known me for over 40 years, and undoubt... Read more

Wait For Me!!

Wednesday, June 08, 2011      16 comments

Why do I run? Well, I can't outrun Father Time, but it sure is fun to try! And the truth is, sometimes it is fun, and sometimes it isn't. And sometimes it makes me feel amazingly young and sometimes it doesn't. Guess the competitive side o... Read more

Thoughts Count

Tuesday, June 07, 2011      8 comments

I'm going to work on coming up with some positive statements, affirmations, mantras, or songs to help me start my runs on a more positive note. In my last race, the whole first mile I must admit, I was thinking very negatively. The thought that ... Read more

Don't Skip a Week

Monday, June 06, 2011      11 comments

I'm really sore today. Right now I feel my neck and shoulders every time I move, so I don't think it was the run. My glutes and quads are sore, too. It must have been my strength training workout yesterday. I had skipped a couple ST sessions th... Read more

Being Obnoxiously Competitive

Sunday, June 05, 2011      11 comments

Hey, I found out that the woman who passed me yesterday near the end of the 5K race was last year's winner for our age group. That made me extra glad I then passed her, beating her by 6 hundredths of a second. This race our chip time was the off... Read more

Saturday, June 04, 2011      13 comments

Before the beginning of the race, they were snapping pictures. My grey hair in the back kind of stands out so you might be able to find me. I've got on aqua shirt and black shorts. Read more

Smile Naked

Monday, May 30, 2011      13 comments

One thing came up at my Weight Watcher's meeting this week and keeps going through my head. It was said that losing weight makes you look better in clothes, but exercise makes you look better naked! Hey, there may be something to that. Makes me... Read more

Applies to Me this Week

Saturday, May 28, 2011      10 comments

My heart rate monitor (HRM) acted funny earlier this week and it kind of scared me. Also, I have a head cold and didn't feel great. So this is the first week in months I am not over the 1800 calories I committed to burn each week. Today I... Read more
