I ran with the local Galloway group for the first time since I joined the group. I walk-ran-walked over with a slow group the mile and a half to the site for the "Miracle Mile" pace test. I didn't want to tire myself out. I ran my mile with 2 sh... Read more

Another good night! That's 4 in a row of 8 hours or more!! Can't remember last time I had such good sleep. I'm doing the Beck book (The Beck Diet Solution) again and this time I bought the workbook, too. There is so much good stuff in that ... Read more

Here's a streak I'd love to keep going: achieving 8 hours of sleep per night. I actually have my streak tracker set for 7 hours per night but rarely make a whole week. Well, this week I've started going to bed an hour earlier because I'll be doi... Read more

Another Trick for Keeping Kids Active in Sunny Summer

Wednesday, June 13, 2012      7 comments

We have a swing set that the kids love in the often nice weather of Florida winter. In the summer, though, it is only in the shade in early morning. There is just too much sun most of the day. I had tried to put up a tarp for shade and wind blew... Read more

More of Jeff Galloway

Tuesday, June 12, 2012      8 comments

I never heard of Jeff Galloway until a year ago when I started reading books about running. So, even though my Galloway Team members don't need it, I should have explained who Jeff Galloway is before I wrote my 2 previous blogs about him. He is ... Read more

Running in Balance

Monday, June 11, 2012      8 comments

One of the many things I heard Jeff Galloway say in his presentation yesterday is that running helps to get the hunger-satisfaction response in balance. What I got out of it is that running can make you hungry, that is, hungry to replace the cal... Read more

Today's my 63rd birthday. You might think I'd be worried about getting older. But I'm a runner. I'm thinking more about two years from now. I move up an age group and am I going to be competitive then!! LOL That might be the year I need to enter... Read more

Yesterday I started 3 different blogs and erased them all. I wrote about vigorous exercise moderating my appetite and that my sister finally got her arm out of the cast. I wrote about my 20 month old granddaughter, Gwen, taking much bigger bites... Read more

I did an 80 minutes treadmill workout today with 31 one-minute running intervals. It felt great. My total mileage was 6.2 miles, precisely a 10K. That is 16 minutes slower than I straight ran a 10K in February. But that is fine following a six w... Read more

I just registered for the Women's Half Marathon (WHM) in St. Petersburg on November 18, 2012. I have just committed to train for almost six months and to run (or run-walk-run, more likely) 13.1 miles. In January I declared my intention to run a... Read more

Not a Human Garbage Can

Monday, May 28, 2012      12 comments

Good day at SeaWorld. Lots of walking. I even walked an hour pushing the stroller while Gwen slept. I had grilled chicken caesar salad. They gave me a half cup of dressing on the side, but I used less than a tablespoon and it was plenty. I pick... Read more
