and I was on such a good streak there.... But I've also been doing a lot since the half, so maybe it's just that. Making my workouts a priority, and trying to get in more resistance training, now that I don't "need" to run on a schedule. ... Read more

Planned it again, and a little better this time, as I had brought my clothes and lunch in the day before, but then as I got down into the canyon that leads to the path to work, I remembered I had not packed my name badge....bit no-no! So I went... Read more

No run on Sunday, and today I was scheduled for a 4 mile easy run, which I had planned to do on the way to work. But then I realized that from home to work is really around 3 miles, so do I run around a bit, and get in an extra mile? No, I dec... Read more

So I actually got to work out with my new trainer yesterday, well, "work out" may not be the term I'd use, orienting to his work out plan and style may be more like it. I got there a little early to warm up and stretch a bit, and when I wa... Read more

Trying to figure out the plan for the day. I'd like to get in for a massage, but no answer at my massage place. I left a message, so I'm hoping they will call me soon, then I can figure out what else to put on the agenda. I'd like to do some... Read more

Guess I'm fit, the experts have told me so! Not that I don't think I'm fit, I mean, I look around and see lots of fit and unfit folks, and I know I am in the fit group, but this battery of tests was a comparison to women in my age group, ... Read more

And bike....back on my bike after a longish hiatus brought on by my foot/ankle problem, some thunderstorms, work/gym schedule, and perhaps even a touch of laziness! So today, I rode my bike to work, nice day for it too! And the bunnies, squirr... Read more
