Little Luxuries

Wednesday, September 07, 2011      6 comments

Some little indulgences really add a lot to life!! One of mine is having a variety of shampoo and matching fragrance conditioners to choose from each day. I enjoy soothing lavendar lots of days, but sometimes prefer an energizing citrus. I have ... Read more

Zumbathon Today!

As promised in my status message today, I went to the YMCA and not only checked out, but participated in, the Zumbathon. For two hours, with only a few second's break here and there, we Zumba'ed. We had 150 dancers/exercisers in the gym along wi... Read more

If You Want to See ...

If you want to see my 5K race finish picture from yesterday, you'll need to click on the link below. In the picture I'm partially obscured by other racers, so I'm not going to buy the picture. It does show that my official time was 28:28. I feel... Read more

WooHoo! Personal Best

Saturday, September 03, 2011      8 comments

I ran the Faster with FitNiche 5K in 28 minutes and 32 seconds, I think. It might have been 33 or 34 seconds. It will be posted online tomorrow, so I'll know for sure. This time the finish line pictures are for sale; in my past races they were f... Read more

New Experiences

Wednesday, August 31, 2011      5 comments

Today after my run at the gym I used a foam roller for the first time on my quads, hamstrings, and calves. I had watched a SP video on how to use it to prevent or reduce soreness. I think it helped. I'm extra excited about my 5K on Saturday... Read more

Unexpected Obstacle and a Kind of Funny

Tuesday, August 30, 2011      7 comments

This morning we had a shower of sparks coming out of our kitchen light/ceiling fan fixture. I ended up spending the time I intended to use for exercise holding flashlights and tools for hubby. Right now the fixture is not back together -- it is ... Read more

Think I Guessed Right

Monday, August 29, 2011      8 comments

When I woke up my quads were still sore. They were sore Saturday when I ran the 6 miles and sore all day Sunday. So I wasn't sure if I should run or not today. I would say it really wasn't pain and definitely was in the muscle. So I decided to t... Read more

Social Running

Saturday, August 27, 2011      11 comments

I was trying to write out my status this afternoon to share my morning experience when I hit something and my status appeared before I was finished. Grandkids were needing me at the time so I decided to just let it be, flawed as it was. But in ... Read more

Not Pulling Together

Thursday, August 25, 2011      8 comments

Sometimes Kahlua, our just turned year old Shepherd-lab mix, walks on the leash just like she learned in obedience training. And then sometimes she doesn't. There are times I think I did not burn the calories indicated by the time and mileage be... Read more

Above is my hero, Rhonda Fosser. She turned 60 in May of this year. In the most recent 5K I ran, her chip time was 23:02. She is a phenom! She won the Grandmaster Female tr... Read more

Just a Fluctuation

Tuesday, August 23, 2011      10 comments

Yesterday I reported that I had weighed more than at any morning weigh in 2011. I weighed over my target range of 124-129.9. I ate plenty of healthy food yesterday, eating around the top of my calorie range. Yet I was down 3.2 pounds and back in... Read more

Getting It Back

Monday, August 22, 2011      9 comments

My chip time for the 5K on Saturday was 30:47; my personal best is 28:46. You might think I'd find this discouraging, but not so. I actually feel excited that I ran that well so easily. I took lots of walk breaks and was hardly even breathing ha... Read more

Here's my finish line picture from yesterday's 5K. I hope to do at least 2 minutes faster in my next race on September 3rd. We'll see. ... Read more

Watermelon Series Final

Saturday, August 20, 2011      12 comments

I ran race 4 of the Watermelon Series of 5Ks. I have now run five 5K races and this was my slowest by 2 seconds at 31:21. I started at the back of the pack and I didn't push it. I'm still recovering from a bear of a cold -- actually two of them ... Read more

Pleased and Honored

Friday, August 19, 2011      11 comments

My niece called yesterday and asked me to run a 5K with her. She's a really neat person, 24 years old, recently engaged to be married, graduated valedictorian of her high school and at the top of her university class, beautiful, funny, hard work... Read more
