Gone the Distance
Saturday, October 20, 2012      21 comments

I ran-walk-ran over 13.5 miles this morning. My group ran about 12 and a half and then I did a little more. Even with my back not 100% it felt good! I absolutely know without a doubt I can make a half marathon because I've already gone the dista... Read more
Overcoming Threats to Healthy Lifestyle
Thursday, October 18, 2012      16 comments

Today I went just under 5 miles in 70 minutes on the treadmill. 40 minutes of it was run-walk-run -- actually 23 minutes of run @ average 6.7 mph and 17 minutes of walk @ 4 mph. The remaining 30 minutes were very slow warm up and cool down. My b... Read more

I can imagine a different world, a better world, a healthy world, a convenient world: * A world where readily available foods are really good for you and the labels are clear and accurate. * A world where restaurants don’t make you choose so... Read more
Feeling Encouraged

I just went 3.35 miles on treadmill in 50 minutes. I did about 10 one minute run intervals and a couple two minute run intervals and one three minute interval. I mostly ran at 5.5mph, so I didn't push pace. It felt good; I felt no back pain. ... Read more
Camera Woes
Monday, October 15, 2012      12 comments

I had a lot of requests for pictures of my new kitchen. One issue is that I don't have a camera. All the pictures I post are taken by other people. No camera-loving friend is available to shoot my kitchen at the moment. I've been thinking... Read more
Looking for the Before Picture
Sunday, October 14, 2012      19 comments

I've been wanting to find a good before picture. I can say I lost over 80 pounds, but a picture can make it more real. Here are a couple pictures I was able to scan today. I don't think any of them are at my top weight, but you can still see qui... Read more
Kitchen Update
Sunday, October 14, 2012      18 comments

Well, it's been two full months since we started renovating our kitchen, hiring a neighbor to do most of the work. It is about 95% completed and almost paid for. The neighbor is just being extremely slow about finishing the last couple items. I ... Read more
Showed Up Ready
Saturday, October 13, 2012      14 comments

This morning I showed up to run. I was there promptly at 6am, with my new Amphipod hand-held strapped water bottle. Last week twice I dropped a bottle from my fuel belt, so I think I've solved that problem. I was dressed in my favorite running s... Read more

I have really been enjoying my Saturday group runs. I'm not in this picture, but it shows the setting for our comradery after running. Here are three people (full disclosure: all 3 of these people are faster than I) that run with our Galloway gr... Read more

I posted this question to the Get Help Here Fitness message board last week: I went 6.2 miles on treadmill in 70 minutes. 5 minute warm up and 5 minute cool down. The 60 minutes was one minute running intervals followed by a minute of walk.... Read more

Gwen and I have had a great morning with a long walk, Little Tikes basketball, chase, playing with the dog, and a lot of dancing. There was also drawing, megablocks, puzzles, singing with motions (Wheels on the Bus, Happy and You Know It, etc.),... Read more
Good Enough to Run Today
Monday, October 08, 2012      18 comments

I went to the gym today and did 45 minutes on the treadmill. I ran 12 one minute running intervals, 10 of them at 6mph and 2 slower. The rest of the time I walked. It was an easy workout. My health issue seems to be 90 percent gone and the disco... Read more
Probably Just Something Totally Inelegant
Sunday, October 07, 2012      21 comments

The old me would have been really excited because after weighing 132.4 at Weight Watchers and 130.8 here at home yesterday, I weighed 127.8 here this morning. But now I know better. The truth is that I had a strange sharp pain under my left... Read more

It was a heady experience finally getting a Popular Blog Award after three years of regular blogging. Thanks At Goal & Maintaining Team for highlighting me! And then a second award a week later without even being highlighted. That blog was selec... Read more
