Yep, one more. I'm now confined to 5k, no speedwork and no hills till they get to the bottom of this. sigh. I found out that I've been bleeding even when I'm NOT running. It's just more when I run. lol! (cause if I don't laugh, I'll cry!).... Read more

AHA moment: My kids sometimes race to the front door and shout "I WIN!!!" while they fight over the doorknob. And I say, "Oh? That's nice. What did you win?" "Uh, Nothing." they say. and I give them the 'well then?' look. ... Read more
47 days till I DON'T run the HM - or, 46 days till my first 10k race?
Sunday, March 28, 2010      6 comments

Glass half empty or half full? Do I try to run the HM on May 16th, just ten months after I first put feet to pavement? Or, do I bow out and plan to run the 10k on May 15th with my running buddies from the RRoom instead. Yep, quitting is on the t... Read more
siiiiiiiiiigh... problem NOT solved :o(
Thursday, March 25, 2010      6 comments

Nope. Not solved at all. I pre-hydrated, I did the intervals, we ran pretty much our slowest pace ever, I re-hydrated at every interval, I ate 4 hours before the run and I felt GREAT during the run. It was easy peasy and I really, really, r... Read more
Problem solved?

Well, if any of you out there have any of the *ahem* bleeding issues that I've been suffering through, listen up! I think I might have found the solution!!!! SLOW DOWN! I can't believe what a difference this has made. I started running... Read more
Rambling, musing and worrying (just a little)

Sooo.... I don't know whether it's a good news day or a bad news day. I guess it's a GREAT news day with a little dark cloud over there in the corner. Good news - I'm 13 pounds from my goal weight! I entered my Spark goal of 130 by May 16th... Read more

I'm just sayin' - there's a special place in hell for people who steal stuff. After a fantastic run in driving rain and 50kph winds, I got to the Y and found my locker open. That really stinks - considering I went there last night to drop o... Read more
One word - what the heck?

I never do these things... Not as easy as you might think! Copy and Paste into your own blog, change the answers to suit you. It's really hard to only use one word answers. Where is your cell phone? desk Spouse? kitchen Y... Read more

Someone FINALLY asked me if I'd lost some weight! AND, it actually felt like a compliment! Now, to be fair, a few people who know I've been working hard on my lifestyle have been very supportive about it. This is the just about the first t... Read more
Living on the Plateau - but the view is pretty good from here
Monday, February 08, 2010      7 comments

So, I'm frustrated about this plateau, but I knew I needed to try and get some perspective so... I finally updated my measurements. Since I hit 148 (and stuck there) in November I've lost: 1 inch EACH off my waist and thigh and two off my ... Read more
Get me OUTTA' 150ville!!!
Tuesday, February 02, 2010      5 comments

So this plateau has got to go! Here's my plan to kick 150 to the curb forevah in February. 28 days of HARD labour mama! I'm going to hit my muscles with some (loving) shock and awe, mix it up so they stop being so darned efficient! hee hee ... Read more
Outta' gas man!
Wednesday, January 13, 2010      3 comments

I believe I finally understand the definition of 'gassed' as in, out of, in the context of exercise. I've seen it in boxing matches, but it mystified me. How can an obviously in-shape guy, who hasn't taken a lot of punches, suddenly seem unable ... Read more
Ow, ow, owwww!
Tuesday, January 12, 2010      3 comments

So, I've had some pretty significant pain in my quad area for a few days. It's some kind of neuralgia, maybe autoimmune, maybe sciatic, not likely related to exercise. It feels like a bee sting, but about 10" across and 20" long. Nothing makes i... Read more
Indoor running!
Monday, January 11, 2010      3 comments

So, I did it! I went 'soft core'! hahahaha I went out and joined the YMCA - because they have an indoor running track. And I ran. Indoors! How odd was that. I plan to keep running outside whenever the weather allows, so I can build up a toleranc... Read more

Tuesday, January 05, 2010      3 comments

Running in the cold is truly kicking my butt. It's unREASONably tough for me. I'm actually surprised I keep doing it! But, this is how running at ALL was in the beginning, so I'm trusting that this is just another thing I need to get used to. ... Read more
