Can't Wait!

I got my e-mail assignment to a Galloway training pace group. There are a few people in Galloway training who I know well, including one I've known for 20 years, but none of them are in my group. I have met one co-leader of my group several time... Read more

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

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

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
