* Went 4.5 miles on TM today, running 3.1 miles of it. If the TM was calibrated correctly I ran my fastest 5K ever, 27:30. For my age group, to qualify for the national senior games 5K you have to run 27:21 or under. Who knows? I just might ach... Read more

The first time I lost 60 pounds it took me 9 months to lose it and 3 months to gain it back. I was 16 years old and I doubt if I even maintained my loss for a week. On December 1, 2008, when I started my current effort to control my weight... Read more

Is "Not Terrible" a Good Thing??

Saturday, September 01, 2012      18 comments

I ran with my Galloway group this morning, a casual run-walk-run of 4 miles. We sat around and drank coffee for a while, drippping sweat in the shade on this muggy, muggy morning. Then I was feeling like more, so I went to the YMCA, jumped ... Read more

Enjoyed a good treadmill run at the YMCA today. Training for my half marathon in 11 weeks and 3 days is right on track. I dropped Natalie off at kindergarten on the way. Gwen (23 months) is healthy and has no problem with the Y nursery. Althoug... Read more

New Personal Distance Record

This morning I finished a Galloway group run-walk-run, completing 10.2 miles. My previous longest was 9 miles. Three times I'd gotten to nine miles and either got sick or had a minor injury and had to back off. Not this time. I ended up feeling ... Read more

Kitchen Challenge

Wednesday, August 22, 2012      14 comments

The plan was -- ahumm, ahumm -- for me to go visit my mom in South Dakota and come back to a remodeled kitchen. Well, to tell you the truth, I strongly suspected it would not be finished and, boy, was I right. Right now there are no bottom... Read more

I'm Baaaack!!

I'm back and back at it. The visit to see my mom in the assisted living facility wasn't easy, but I'm very glad I went. Also glad to report the scale showed no change, despite days of undereating and days of overeating -- guess it all balanced o... Read more

Oh, I didn't even want to blog about it. Can't believe I did it. But yes, I did. Thursday morning I knocked a casserole dish full of chili off the second shelf of the refrig around bleary-eyed 6:30am. It hit my right foot and shattered between m... Read more

Flexibility Needed

Just got back from the Y. Met DSIL there and gave him the kids before my workout. I will be glad when Gwen is well enough to go back to the nursery, since morning workouts are my favorites. But at least Gwen doesn't feel bad; she just has a run... Read more

Inspired and Cheering

Inspired by Aquagirl and her dedicated homemaking efforts detailed in great blogs, I tackled a chore I'd been putting off for a long, long time. Let's just say that 5 year old Natalie now knows what a dust bunny is and can attest that there are ... Read more

Blue Sky Day

I rode with the cycling group this morning a little over 14 miles. I'm spoiled as group leader Cindy usually posts the picture she takes immediately, but I don't see it today on FaceBook. There may be some technical glitch. There were 5 of us to... Read more
