Friday, May 08, 2009      0 comments

My official marathon training starts on Mother's Day. I am still thinking about what I should use and why. A GPS unit would tell me distance as I go...but Fitness Maps on SP would give me an idea of where to turn around and loop back before my r... Read more

Throw me a lifeline! Ack! What a weird 24 hours...slipping past that time frame now. There are some things that you should just have sometimes. Sometimes is okay. But when you allow yourself to believe that sometimes means once a day is okay...s... Read more

It is amazing all of the neuances that go into picking up and heading out for a run. Using the proper clothing for the weather, good shoes, good socks, good music (when your iPod or MP3 player works...grrr...and if you like that on your run), an... Read more

Last night I made a yummy stick to your ribs soup for dinner. I threw in some extras, and figured that a measured portion would do me and the hubby fine. About an hour later, however, my tummy was telling me another story! I knew I was not exerc... Read more

Perplexed About My Current Running Route Distance/Speed
Friday, May 01, 2009      1 comments

I've looked at MapMyRun dot com. It's okay. Why? Because it doesn't include a street that I run on. Well, I found a Fitness Map tool on SparkPeople and it did include the street. I mapped out my route and I am running (well...I'm w... Read more

I am a bit sad this morning. A local college student was training for a marathon. She was struck and killed yesterday evening. She was running on the roadside. I admit that I do not do this...yet. As my runs get longer, I need a game plan. I thi... Read more

Since I began my commitment at the start of the year, I have been fortunate (knock wood) to not succumb to a nasty cold, debilitating tummy bug, or other illness that would put me out of commission. I did pull a tummy muscle and took it easy for... Read more

I'm all set for 12 weeks of the newest BL Challenge here on SP. Looking forward to motivating my SP friends, and hoping to get some from them when I'm having a tough day. I know that I am challenging myself by setting a goal of 10 lbs down in 12... Read more
Long Runs on Warm Days
Monday, April 20, 2009      0 comments

Yesterday was definitely a warning shot for me. As the weather warms up (and stays that way), I need to be prepared for long runs. I can't run without water. I'll end up with a lingering headache that makes me grouchy. And I need to make sure I ... Read more

I was wondering if I needed to make a change. SP gave me a helpful reminder when I had good news to input into my weight tracker today. If you lose a significant amount (i.e. 10-15 pounds) then you need to ensure that you go and update the track... Read more

I've hit a plateau. This happened to me before. In order to not lose motivation, I am taking inventory. I am journaling my food and water. I am exercising. But I need to see where I can make changes (if they are needed). I'm working very hard to... Read more

Thursday, April 09, 2009      2 comments

I've got some angst. Here I am, 23 lbs down...with 27 lbs to go (based on the goal SP set for me). I know that I have come so far. I will keep going. But with two different goals (weight loss and marathon training)...I am worried that I will get... Read more
