I got myself some new running shoes today. Yay! I also made the mistake of checking out the clearance rack at the running store. A nice pair of running capris, a fuzzy warm pullover for next winter (I'll probably wear it everywhere), and a new c... Read more

The run people reported the results wrong. Official results are that the course is 1/2 mile shorter, so now my pace is 9:15. No PR. Sad me.... Read more

It probably does not make sense to try and match your longest distance run within 48 hours after donating blood. That little voice that says "you should probably turn around now, and skip that last mile"? Listen to it.... Read more

Lately it's been very hard to get out for my runs. Some mornings it takes 1/2 an hour of psyching up. Thank goodness I always feel better after I run, because sometimes that's the only think that gets me out there. This morning it turned su... Read more

Slow, and I'm shaky and coughing now, but 5 miles. Perhaps I overdid just a bit.... Read more

I miss my exercise!

This dang cold has been hanging on for a few days, and I feel too drained to do much more than a short walk. I suppose it's a good sign that I'm beginning to feel restless. The good news is, my appetite has also diminished, so I don't want to ea... Read more

...To make you feel like it's worth it. I was at TJs this morning, and 3 people commented that I was looking good. these are people who see me every week. I'm thinking those new jeans were worth it. "Did you lose weight?" -- some of t... Read more

My weight this morning was down to 150. I now match my driver's license, after year of :-). I hesitate to call this a weigh-in weight. I think I want it to stay there or below for a few days before claiming it for reals. I gue... Read more

It has become very hard for me to make dinner, because if I make it I want to eat it. My most effective eating pattern for keeping my calorie intake within range is to eat during the day and only have a snack in the evening. Oddly enough, ... Read more

I had a good run today -- 5 miles, but it was pouring and cold. I'm cold for the rest of the day when my runs are like this. I wish there was a way to tell my SP calorie counter that this is a high-burn day, so I need more calories. I'm eating a... Read more

I just entered a 10K for April 17. It is advantageously timed. It's called "Bridge to Brews" and starts and ends at a microbrewery. At the end of the run each entrant gets 2 beers. Since this is the day before Passover starts, wherein I cannot h... Read more
