Thursday, April 18, 2013      5 comments

This was a repeat of day 1 because we had left overs. I feel like I lasted one day. My husband is not on board at all because my schedule is too full right now and I have not had time to prepare meals in advance. However, I do not think it matte... Read more

Snow is in the forecast again, another 5-8" possible. April 27th is my half marathon date. I've been wimpy with the cold this year. My cross training has been shoveling snow. I am not sure how I will fare with that. If I do go, my goal will... Read more

Friday, April 05, 2013      6 comments

I ran 10 miles yesterday, or rather I slogged 10 miles. I happened to run with my shadow and it looked like I was a constipated old lady out for a run. I really need to work on my form. In the morning, my intent was to do 14 but as the hour... Read more

Back in 2011 I attempted to run a sub30 5k. The closest I got to it was 30:23. Then last year I did a half marathon and trained to finish with no time goal. The weather was hot last summer and I did not focus on time for any of the races until t... Read more
