Beckyanne, your consistency is like a solid heartbeat! So inspiring!

Can't wait to go to Run Club tonight! I'm think long slow distance run and embracing the sunset on the water! This is how we roll in Paradise!
emoticon
I continue to be inspired by my Bro & Sis Triathletes! I found my new training pool, Dunedin Community Center Highlander Pool! It's about 2 miles from my house and ridiculously inexpensive. I'll start serious swim training to perfect my stroke, and build strength along with endurance! I'll still do open water swimming (OWS) in the Gulf!

Ya gotta step out to make it happen!

It is raining quite hard today so it will be a rest day for me instead. I will just do a run on Sat. which is normally my rest day. I've done pretty well this week with my mileag. Much better than Ihave been doing.

I love unplanned routes. I headed down to the lake for a run yesterday. I didn't realize how windy it was. I managed 4 miles and then I walked/ran 2 more miles. Today I'm planning about a 3 mile run if the rain holds off. The next couple of days look to be wet then so I'm not quite sure what I will be doing.

I had a great time at Lulu's Beach Runners, my Monday Run Group, last night! Ran with my run partner, Jen. Girl is crazy! We went 1.55 miles out turned around, then she decided, "Let's explore and take a different way back! Famous last words. We didn't realize we started going south into a small peninsula around a bayou.
emoticon
It was so funny as we stated, "It's a good thing we're in shape to do this!" When we got back we found we had done a total of 4 miles...and felt great! I'm really embracing the fun in running! I suggest everyone find the fun in their run or their training!

Good Evening!

I had a nice Easter. The weather turned out nice and today was another beautiful day. I was able to catch a couple of minutes of the marathon at work but that's about it. So happy to see an American win it. So deserving!

Hello everyone!

70 degree temps. today! Although I spent the day working, I managed to get my butt outside earlier this morning and did a 3 plus mile run and about a 1 mile walk. Looking forward to more Spring weather this week.

Have a nice Easter!

D & I got up this am to volunteer at the Clearwater Beach Hooters 5K & Beach Swim held by one of our dear friends and great Race Director! D had to withdraw due the onset of a sore throat and cold. Good thing as the winds "washed out" the swim portion. All went well and everyone had a great time.

I came home to take care of D for the remainder of the day. She's needed to take a break and rest.

Good Evening!

It's been a busy couple of days and I hate to say it, the exercise has been put on the back burner. Some day I will have better time management or I'll just quit this job and then my problem will be solved! The weather looks like it's going to change and I will have my mornings to myself starting on Sunday.

Did a nice paced 5K last night then spent the night with my Run Team trying to figure our which race we'll do next year in New Orleans. Looking at the Crescent City 10K since the race is a blast with a post-party to die for!

I never thought I would be a runner. I weighed 233 - 258 from ages 23-50. Then I played around with "dieting," got down to a low of 229 then floundered. I moved to Florida to be with my Granddaughter, played a bit more with "diets," and got down to 220. I joined SparkPeople in Oct 2010, did my 1st walking 5K in Nov, 2010, and now...

I'm focused on cross training right now as I'm looking at 5 Triathlons this year starting in June. The St Pete Mad Dogs Triathlon Club invited me to volunteer at St Anthony's Triathlon, Apr 27, the USA Triathlon Regional Championships. I hope to do this premiere event next year.

I look back at where I was and where I am now and I can't believe that I am running further distances now than when I was in my early 20's. I'm not afraid to challenge myself. At the time when I was running, it wasn't as popular. There weren't all the races to motivate you and the ones we did have were short races. Exercise classes were more important. So glad times have changed. emoticon

I did an inside walk/elliptical workout yesterday. Our weather hasn't been the greatest. I'm hoping the weather changes by the time my son has to go to is track meet so I can get out and get a workout in. emoticon emoticon

Last night I did one more run for Boston. I believe most of us take it to heart and are inspired by the incredible heart shown by our own! I am truly blessed to be the runner I am today. Never in my wildest dreams did I think this could happen! It proves to me anything is possible!

Good Morning!

I actually got out yesterday and ran more than I walked for a change. Wasn't sure where I was going to run so I ended up on a trail which as long as I watch where I run and not hit any holes feels so much better on my knee. The ground was a bit icey do to the melting snow the day before and the freeze overnight. My legs are a bit sore today and I will change it up a bit.

Have a wonderful Wed.! emoticon

Yesterday afternoon turned out to be not too bad. Most of the snow melted, the sun came out and the roads dried out, so I went for my run, walk. Or should I say walk, jog. Either way, I got out and did 4 miles. Much better than struggling on the treadmill. It's colder this morning, but very light winds so it should be good to get out this morning again. emoticon

A very non productive day yesterday! A little drama going on around the house with teenagers. Today everyone is back to school and work so I should have me time.

We woke up this morning to about 2 inches of snow. Not a welcoming sign especially since the first outdoor track meet is tonight. Temps. in the 30's with north winds. Brrrr!!!!! It's also going to probably be an indoor workout day unless things change by this afternoon.

It's not paradise yet here! emoticon

MIRAGE-It sounds like your are on a constant vacation! I could use a little of that right now.

We had thunderstorms yesterday and today we're suppose to have more rain. It is so gloomy outside. Will try and get an outdoor run in.

Went to breakfast then Iron Girl Expo with D & Lin! Met with Milestones Sports Jewelry as we are on their Race Team for several races in 2014. I will probably become an Ambassador for them as I'll wear their colors at several Triathlons this year.

We stopped for a snack break at Sea Dog Brewing Company before coming home. Now, we're taking a break then getting ready to go to our Besties' (and running bud!) Renewal Vows at Honeymoon Island then the after party at their parents' house. Sigh...another day in Paradise!

Took D & Sis to Run Club last night! Gorgeous evening, watching the sunset on the Gulf! I ran with an Ultra runner. He gave me guidance on a good Marathon pace and share his experiences on a long run. I took up a slower pace to get used to it and did an easy 5K, focused on that and good form! Lin & D focused on a good 35 minute session.

There are alot of things that can affect our runs. I have to remember that I'm not that young kid who can throw a pair of shoes on and run.

Yesterdays run/walk wasn't too bad and after standing for 7 1/2 hrs at work yesterday, my leg feels pretty good this morning. emoticon

Another long day at work today before a weekend off. Lots of things that need to get done. Sure hope the weather man is wrong and it doesn't rain the entire weekend.

Have a great Friday!

I think we forget how active we are during the day prior to our training runs.
I will run around town, rush home, change into my run armor, then expect to do a sub standard number on my run. I don't achieve that number and then I start analyzing why I didn't do a better time or why I was dragging!
Uh, I always forget what I did during the day! What did I eat so far during the day and before my training run? If it wasn't good fuel, my body will get sluggish. AND if you're just going to do a "simple run," most training plans will note you should do it a 1-2 minute slower pace than your race pace.
That's why you need to train, eat, and rest well to train well! All of us need to focus on that!

Had a great time at North Pinellas Tribe run group last night. D really enjoyed and will look for opportunities to go back! Sis had a good time as well!

Good Morning!

I got out last night for a walk/run and this morning my leg is feeling pretty decent. I did run on a trail and not on the hard road.

I've gone thru the weeks of it feeling harder to run. I always get frustrated because I see others that do it every day and they don't look like it's bothering them at all. Don't give up running. It may be time to change things up a bit like maybe running different distances. Whatever you do, don't quit running. That won't make it any easier.

I took my sis to Iron Girl packet pickup today! Picked up D's stuff and found orthotics for Sis as she left them at home in Va.

I made a Spinach Strawberry Salad with a perfect Blueberry Balsamic Vinaigrette yesterday for dinner which she loved. I want her to see how easy it is to make food at home!

We're on our way to the North Pinellas Tribe run group to join them for a spot of training! As my Sis got her marching orders from her Galloway Group, I decided to help her out to get 'er done!

Ok, so I have been running faithfully for at least 5 miles 3 times a week and cross training in between. Lately, I find my runs are really hard. I feel tired and my knees are hurting. What should I do? Should I keep running for shorter distances or should I take break from running?

I didn't bounce back as well as I thought. Ran 1 mile yesterday and my knee hurt. Walked the rest of the way. It was really windy also so I wasn't up for the resistance. I work today, but it's suppose to be in the 70's so I'm looking at getting out when I get home. At least for a walk!

Going to Tampa International to pick up my Sis. Going to spend the week showing her how to live a healthy lifestyle in the kitchen, in training, and in life a bit more! She's doing the Iron Girl 5K on Sunday with D and a bunch of other women runners from all three of my run groups! Great race! I'm excited for all of them!

Good Morning!

I ran the whole race yesterday! Time wasn't that far off of my reg. run time for 5 miles. The weather was almost perfect. The only issue was the wind. Being out in the open surrounded only by farm fields, it was quite gusty. At one point I thought about walking, but I didn't. Today my knee and leg are really feeling it, but it was worth it!

Enjoy your time with your sister MIRAGE!

Getting the house ready for my Sister's return visit tomorrow! She's doing the Iron Girl Run next Sunday with D and a lot of my run group members! I'll be cheerleading!

I'm excited to hear that she's now with a Galloway Training Group in the DC Metro Area! I'll work with her on "The Pinellas Trail." I'll also be showing her how to cook clean, tasty, and healthy this week! I'm excited that she is starting to embrace the fringes of a healthy lifestyle! Baby steps! We started in Dec and she's already done 2 5K and a 5 Miler. More importantly, she building a lot of quality training miles! Good times.

I am so psyched! I ran 52 minutes yesterday without stopping. It was amazing!! My gymboss was not working, batteries dead. I didn't know it until after I left the house. I got ready to hit the start button and it didn't go on. I thought oh well, I'll just run as far as I can until I get tired. Since I didn't know how long I was running I just told myself try to make it to 20 minutes. Before I knew it I was at 52. Woo Hoo!!!

Good Morning!

Coudy and it looks like rain. The rain should hold off, but I don't thnk we'll see the sun for my 5 mile race today. emoticon It's going to be pretty much like last years race. At least I won't get hot. It's just deciding what to wear. Much easier when you can just throw on shorts and a t-shirt. I'm not looking at getting any spectacular numbers today. My knee and lower leg are pretty sore. I will finish and I'm fine with that. It's for a great cause (cancer) and the honorary person is a guy with terminal brain cancer who continues to run marathons , only now he pushes his daughter in a stroller while he runs them.

I hope everyone has a nice Sunday!

Got up this morning and took off on the road with D to breakfast! Round trip was 4.5 miles and so worth it. It was nice to share the time as we do different paces at races.

I already nailed two speed training sessions (3 miles flat & 4 mile bridge) and a slower paced 5K earlier this week. I just thought the weekend deserved a 'lil road work!

Now, quality time with Gianna at the Palm Harbor Citrus Festival! Saturday is fund day!

Good Morning!

emoticon MIRAGE!

I will be sporting a tutu when I do the Color Run!

I did a treadmill walk jog for a bit yesterday and then went on the elliptical. I didn't want to push it too hard, but at the same time, I wanted to try the new shoes. Pretty comfy shoes, but the test will be when I' able to get outside with them. Not sure if I'll try them for tomorrows 5 mile race or not.

Have a great day!

After dropping her back home, I made it to my Dunedin Running Club where we all sported "tutus," running down Edgewater Linear Park by the water. People on the road would sound their horns and shout encouragement!

Good Morning!

Woke up to about 1-2 inches of heavy wet snow this morning. That should be about all we get thankfully.

I've got shorts on to do an indoor workout today. I've decided to get back into the habit of getting into my workout clothes right away in the morning to get me ready to exercise. This way I can't put it off! Sunday's 5 mile race may be wet. No snow though. They took that out.

Have a great Friday!

That is a bit of a trek, Beckyanne. It's about as far as going from my home in Dunedin, FL to Downtown Tampa or St Petersburg. I do have to say that my main run store,American Running Company, is about 5 miles from my house. I do appreciate that. I can also appreciate your effort! Outstanding! Run clinics are always beneficial!

This afternoon, I pick up Gianna from school, get a healthy dinner, take her back to school for the Book Fair, drop her at home then go to run group for a training run. Gonna fuel clean and keep my energy level up!

Good morning!

MIRAGE-We didn't have any running stores around where I live. There was 1 in Rochester, MN, but I never had the time to get there and the next place was in the Twin Cities. This running store is about 25 min. away from me now. They have running groups and they're putting on running clinics which I plan on going to the next one.

Right now we're waiting to see what our weather is going to do and how much snow we're going to get. Praying it's on the lighter side, but that will depend on the temps.

Have a wonderful Thurs.

Yay, Beckyanne! I'm shocked that you've never had a gait analysis! I'm happy you scored a great shoe in the Transcends! All the girls in my family (D, Gianna, & Linda) have been fitted for Brooks! I'm the lone ASICS 3000-2 owner now. All the best & cool runnings!
emoticon
After two days of run training, I'm still going to do another 5K this evening, just very light & focused on form with recovery as the goal. I've rediscovered my body reacts positive to it. I'm still working strength training as it's vital to a good run! I'm fueling clean too! What's on your plate?

Good Morning!

It was a great experience at the running store yesterday. I've never done gait testing before. They took the time to get to know about my experience with running. When it came to picking out shoes, I got really excited when I found out that the Brooks Transcends were designed for my gait. Needless to say, they made their way home with me. I know I could've gotten them about $20 cheaper if I would've ordered them online, but I wouldn't have had this experience.

Now, hopefully the Winter Storm that is headed our way will be just rain and not a bunch of snow or ice.

It looks like we're back to Winter again! It's a sick April Fools joke for sure! I'm headed to a new running store today to check out what they have. I need to also get some sort of a workout in.

I've been having ups and downs with my weight also the last few months. I get really stressed out when I know I've been making bad choices. Once in awhile is no big deal, but when it continues, then it's a problem. I know alot of my issues has to deal with the weather and the fact I'm having such a hard time adjusting my workouts around work. Plus add in a knee problem. I'm happy to say though my mind will not allow me to go over a certain weight. Good thing nice weather and more races are coming!

Have a great day!

Over the last few months, I've experienced emotional impact on my weight. I've hit the upper levels of my weight range, and have take positive action to recover. I'm going to focus on my nutrition, & training with a fresh attitude. Short term goals help.

No matter what, we will all go through these times. It's what we do about it that counts! You feel so much better embracing the positive!

Have a great day!

Got together with closest running friends last night at a house party last night! Today, it's breakfast out, local downtown market, chill time, then a fun 5K in Downtown Clearwater taking me over the Clearwater Memorial Bridge into Clearwater Beach and back! Good to be back in Paradise!

The weekend is starting out sunny and should remain that way all weekend. Temps moving up also. About the only downside is going to be the wind. As long as its a warm wind I'm fine with it. If it's a cold north wind, no!
Yesterday was an off day for some reason. I guess I was just burnt out from working more than I'm use to. Went out for dinner last night and didn't make healthy choices. I will make up for it this weekend!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Good to be home. That said, I always regroup, and insure I'm in my healthy lifestyle. As I am doing a twilight 5K tomorrow night, I'm already preparing with my nutrition, and light training! My run plan is to start a solid pace, see how I'm doing then decide how strong I will go. Focusing on staying healthy is the best positive action I could be in after a mentally exhaustive week.

Rain and gloom all day yesterday, but no snow overnight. Today it's dry and it should be nice thru the weekend. Mild temps possibly into the 60's on Sunday!

Have a great Friday!

You always appreciate what you have after being away from it! Just got home, took advantage of my amazing shower closet, and now I'm just going to relax! Can't wait to sleep in my king bed! It's the best cure for mental exhaustion...that...and running!

Another cold start this morning! Really tired of this. Would love to be able to pack the layers away.

My plans are to get out this afternoon for a walk and maybe throw in a little jogging. I'm finding that the standing at work is not good for it. I'm trying to do stretcing, etc. behind the counter so it doesn't stiffen up from standing on it.

Not liking the weather MIRAGE?

I got asked to work today so seeing as it's winter here again, I figured why not! 60's on Sunday though so I will be unavilable to work this weekend!

Not a bad weekend, but also not very productive. Knee is feeling better so today I'm going to either get on the trainer or elliptical for a bit. Snow is in the forecast today and tonight. opefully no accumulation.

Have a great day!

Got a fairly early start on the road to Northern Virginia this morning. Stopped in Lumberton, NC for the night. Watched the NCAA Men & Women dance tonight. It was sadistically sweet to watch the Tarheels lose while eating a fire grilled Sirloin in a NC Outback!

I tweaked my hamstring Thursday night so I'm just taking it easy.
It's all good as I'm focused on packing for the road trip back to Arlington, VA. We're having my Mom interred with my Dad at Arlington Cemetery on Tuesday. I hope to start the return home on Wednesday. I'm so glad I got to spend time with Gianna this week. It's taken my mind off the fact that my Mom's birthday was yesterday. Life goes on!

MIRAGE-How sweet to be making such fun memories!

After a bit of a slow start yesterday, I finally got my butt moving and went out for a 5 plus mile run. Now to concentrate on taking care of this knee. The warmer temps have gone away for a few days so I will be working on doing other things. I haven't picked up my bike yet, so that is something we'll be doing this afternoon. No big plans for the weekend! Just the same old stuff. Need to start thinking about painting, etc.

Have a great weekend everyone!

I picked up Gianna this morning and we went to breakfast. We went directly to see opening day Muppets Most Wanted opening day! I loved that she enjoyed it since we have nothing but state of the art animation these days. Not making it available in 3D speaks volumes for the artistry of Jim Henson. After I had to go to Costco, and Gianna was such a help. She loves being a part of anything, and I include her in it all.
( Parents! When your kids want to help, let them! You give them respect, they give you theirs!)
This was her last weekday of Spring Break. I'm so glad I got to spend some of it with her. After all, she's our Spark!

Good Morning!

Good info MIRAGE! My surgeon taught me how to put my running shoes on and how to lace them up. He doesn't lace them that way, but what was important was the fact he had me put my shoes on and hit my heel on the ground to get my heel where it should be. I then lace my shoes up almost as though I'm lacing skates. When done, your toe area feels like it has alot of room and your foot won't move around as much.

We took a nice walk yesterday after work. Attempted to run it, but after 8 hrs of standing, my knee wouldn't allow it.One more day of Springlike weather today so I will be out for sure. Afterwards, I'm taking most of the week off from running and distance walking. I've got a 5 miler coming up in a couple of weeks and then nothing till June. I want to be able to enjoy my running when the weather gets nice so that means I really need to take care of my knee now.

Have a great Friday everyone.

Just want to give a shout out on education. If you check out the links under the Team Stream on the right, you will see articles I've found helpful throughout my running. I will go back and read them from time to time. Knowledge helps you run better and will help prevent injury!

MIRAGE-sounds like a relaxing day! emoticon

Walked in the morning yesterday and then went to work. Today is a full day of work, hopefully followed by a walk/run this evening. I need to take advantage of the nice weather when ever we get it. Plus I can't think of a better way to celebrate the first day of Spring! emoticon

Well, G & I dropped Auntie Linnie at the airport after breakfast then headed home, got our supplies for the beach and headed to Honeymoon Island Beach! I spent the next 1 1/2 hours watching G boogie board the waves! We ate a late lumch and I took her home. Needless to say, we had a great time!

Good Morning!

A little warmer today. Rain this afternoon followed by snow! emoticon I managed a 4 mile run yesterday in the wind and cold. Felt like January. Since it's going to be nice for part of the day today, I'm going to head down to the lake and run the bike path. Will do my cross training tomorrow.

After Saturday's challenge, I was quite surprised to start a walk in the morning with D & Sis to breakfast at Lulu's Beach House! I ran up and back to add 4 miles to the weekend. This evening, I feel great and will run smartly tomorrow night with my run group!

Enjoyed a day of shopping yesterday. Spent time with my mom.

Today I plan on working around the house and hopefully get some exercise in this afternoon.

Knee is feeling better today.

D, Linnie, & I spend most of the day in Dunedin! I did the Leprechaun Challenge, They did the 5K.
My run partner and I set a new 10K Personal Best. I took 1st in my Age Group! After we finished the 10K/5K/1Mile Challenge, we took about 16 of our closest running friends to a great local place where we sat outside on the patio in the glorious sun and spent most of the day enjoying the company!
emoticon
We finally made it back home where we relaxed, showered, recovered, and went back out to another place where we sat outside in the beer garden and listened to a friend play guitar. Perfectly mellow to bring a great day to a peaceful close! Life is good!

Good Luck MIRAGE! emoticon

Did a 5k run yesterday and a 1 mile walk. My knee didn't bother me that much so I think I will just stick to shorter distances for the most part for awhile.

Today is my normal rest day. emoticon

Have a wonderful Sat.!

I have to makes sure that if any of our runners have questions, do not hesitate to ask in the forums. We've probably all experienced the same things already!

Auntie Linnie and I took Gianna running around on her 1st day of Spring Break! We did breakfast, then walked the Downtown Market, hit "Mr Peabody and Sherman" (in 3D!), went birthday present shopping for Mommy, had a snack, bought G new shoes at Justice, then Mom took her home! Yeah, THAT's why I run Halfs and do Triathlons!

Now, I'm getting myself mentally ready for the Leprechaun Challenge (10K. 5K, 1 MIle) in the morning!

The weather was beautiful yesterday! I worked all day, but when I came home, DH and I headed down to the lake for a nice walk. It's mild this morning so I'm going to get out for a short run.
Grocery shopping is also on my list of things to do today.

Have a great day!

Walked 4 miles yesterday. My knee is feeling much better and I will try a short run tomorrow.

Frustrations of not being able to do what I want. emoticon

Definitely smart approach, Beckyanne!

Picked up my sister from Tampa International! Great to see her again. I'm bringing her to Dunedin Running Group tomorrow night! We're working on her nutrition. She keeps coming down, I'll have her doing a Half Marathon in no time!
emoticon
She's doing the St Paddy's 5K with D on Saturday while I do the Leprechaun Challenge! Should be a great week!

Took it easy yesterday. emoticon

Today I plan on doing a walk/jog. I may even get on the elliptical instead. I've only got the 5 mile run coming up in April so far so I don't need to push it right now. Better to have the knee feeling better instead of worse.

Temps. are colder today, but emoticon we didn't get any snow yesterday plus we lost alot of the snow that was on the ground.

MIRAGE-It looks like you've got a great plan. emoticon

Take care, Beckyanne!

Today, I spent time with the owner of Lulu's (Home of the Beach Runners), planning St Paddy's Training Run and Party. I ended up having her register for Iron Girl in April!
emoticon
This evening at my ARC/Sea Dog Run Group, I did 4 miles of speed training, 12 passes over a foot bridge! Exhilarating and confidence building added to the addiction! This is what I plan to do every week now! Combined with what I did last night, I am quite happy my run plan is coming together!
emoticon
Tomorrow, my sis, Linnie, arrives at Noon! I know we'll do some light training before our races on Saturday! Yes, I am enabling her run addiction!

Temps in the 50's yesterday! emoticon

Went out for a run and ran a slower pace and ran my 6.2 miles. Alot of the slow was due to the wind whic is much stronger around the lakes and "the lakes" that have formed on the path and road due to melting snow. Going up on the icey snow to avoid the deeper ones can be a challenge. I avoided the path at certain poins only to find the road wasn't any better. Not very good planning when they resurfaced the path last year. Last night my knee was quite stiff and sore. I will pamper the knee today. Besides, I will have to stand on it for 6 hrs tonight at work. That's enough stress for the poor thing.

Rain/sleet is in the forecast today. Still mild temps. though.

Have a nice day!

I so feel ya, Beckyanne. I started the Armadillo 5K on Saturday with twins from my Tuesday run group. I've run with them in the past and did quite well. I looked at my Garmin and was shocked to see the fast pace. I fell into my regular comfy pace and finished with a decent time.
Tonight I did our new run club and worked with another friend who is on the comeback trail. He did Ultras in the past, injured himself, and now rebuilding. We concentrated on speed drills. I think I'm going to do a lot more of them as I want to get OUT of my comfort zone and break my PR.
