Thanksgiving week summary
Tuesday, November 29, 2011      6 comments

Thanksgiving week was pretty stressful this year. I did get 3 runs in but did not feel like tracking distance or heart rate. The total miles was somewhere around 10. I'm going to do a MAF test this afternoon to see where I'm at. On a positive... Read more

Short run
Tuesday, November 22, 2011      3 comments

Today I ran out of time again getting ready for Thanksgiving. My husband was back later from work so I only had about half an hour to work out. I ran 2 miles on the treadmill in the early evening. Fortunately I had also spent about an hour walki... Read more
Running in snow boots (video blog)
Monday, November 21, 2011      15 comments

I decided to try my fairly lightweight snow boots for running today since I need something for when the snow gets really thick and my minimalist shoes won't work. I started with 2 miles since the weight of the boots worked like ankle weights and... Read more
Still no running

This is the longest break that I've had from running since I started the Maffetone method, 4 days without running. I'm not sure if it's the weather or just busyness but I feel physically tired. I was on my feet all day moving bags of feed, walk... Read more
Reflections on running and races
Saturday, November 19, 2011      8 comments

I was much too busy to do any running the last two days. I did a lot of thinking about running, though, especially the fact that running, like almost any enjoyable activity, can become addictive. It may not even be the running itself that's a... Read more
Dehydration fixed - better run
Wednesday, November 16, 2011      1 comments

It occurred to me on the way to the gym this morning. I did not drink anything when I went to bed and I waited until well after 9 am to have a cup of tea. I did not drink very much yesterday, either, or this whole past week, because when it's co... Read more
Another attempt
Wednesday, November 16, 2011      1 comments

My MAF test attempt last night failed. I don't know if my body was affected by the teeth cleaning in the morning (challenge for the immune system as more bacteria are circulating through the body) or if I was just tired, or if my body does not d... Read more
Monday 11/14/2011 ice skating, walking, hauling hay
Tuesday, November 15, 2011      3 comments

We went ice skating in the morning and I was lucky enough to find a nice lady who helped me with the basics, improving my use of inside and outside edges, stops and crossovers. Whenever more advanced maneuvers don't progress it's good to go back... Read more
A very windy long run
Sunday, November 13, 2011      1 comments

I woke up feeling tired and not really motivated to even get out of bed. After trying to figure out why for 15 minutes I realized that I had gone to bed after midnight for no good reason other than feeling too lazy to walk upstairs, LOL. I al... Read more
Hauling hay and ice skating
Sunday, November 13, 2011      2 comments

This was definitely a non-cardio day. I can't quite call it a strength training day because we only moved hay for about 1/2 hour. In the afternoon I had a skating lesson and started learning single-foot spins. I'm pretty tickled by the fact t... Read more
A final run before the snow hits
Friday, November 11, 2011      3 comments

I was hoping to do a long run today. We got delayed a little trying to set up my husband's new heart rate monitor. So my long run was only slightly longer than my regular runs, 5.1 miles with several steeper hills. It was amazing to see that... Read more
2 rest days and an appeal to get involved
Thursday, November 10, 2011      0 comments

Two rest days in a row is not what I had planned but I had no time for running these last two days. I did manage to get an hour of walking in with the dogs and some of it turned into jogging. I'll plan my long run for tomorrow. For those o... Read more
