After my short morning run I took the day off of work to get some things done around the house. We just had our garage floor raised to keep it from flooding. We had so much junk in there I had to get rid of it. Them mowed the yard and did an h... Read more
Calorie Counter

Am I slow? Just figured out, after 2 years on SP, if you put food into groups and enter those groups into your food tracker, you earn fewer points then if you enter those same foods separately. It is easier to enter the foods as a group, but... Read more
The Rock of Habits

If you are not meeting all of your goals, maybe this will help you gain a new perspective. If you are drowning (not meeting your goals) and someone is trying to pull you out of the water (help you), what rock (habit, belief, fear, etc.) are... Read more
Flat Lining

At the doctor's office for regular checkup. Nurse tries to take EKG reading. First try, no reading. Second try, no reading and she tells me I'm flat lining. Third try, no reading and she tells me it must be my low pulse rate. Fourth try, gets a ... Read more

One of the doctors at our last running seminar said: If you are generally healthy now you have a choice. You can sit around and do nothing and suffer from an illness or you can exercise and suffer from an occasional injury. I'll take the occ... Read more
Houston Fit
Sunday, July 31, 2011      1 comments

Finished my second week of training for a winter marathon. Met some very nice people in this group. I've run with this group before and most of the people at my slow pace are young and female. It seems the bantering back and forth never stops. I... Read more
Half Marathon
Sunday, July 10, 2011      5 comments

Finished the Missoula Montana today. The temperature at the start was about 45 degrees, about 40 degrees cooler than in Houston. This should have made this a great run for me. It didn't make any difference. I finished in my usual time. The supp... Read more

"I have now disposed of all my property to my family. There is one thing more I wish I could give them, and that is the Christian Religion. If they had that and I had not given them one shilling they would have been rich; and if they had not tha... Read more
Heart Rate

Saturday's run was my last long run before the Missoula Montana Half Marathon on July 10th. My thought prior to my run is if this could be a good run in Houston's heat, the half marathon should be much easier. A secondary purpose was to look f... Read more

Short Runs

Saturday morning I will be running 12.5 miles. I'll be drinking 8 oz. of Gatorade/water every mile in hopes of not getting dizzy or running out of energy at the end of my run. Normally it's my long runs that motivate me and get me to do my short... Read more

Ran 12 miles this morning. Temperature was 78 when I started and 81 when I finished. I drank 8 oz. of half Gatorade and half water every 1.5 miles. Did much better than my two previous long runs but not there yet. When I got home I weighted mys... Read more
Running in the Heat
Wednesday, June 08, 2011      2 comments

I'm happy with my run this morning. 2.9 miles in 29 minutes. Just under 10 minutes per mile. At my last 5K in January my pace was almost 12 minutes per mile. Last October I was running so poorly, feeling bad and running slowing, that I quite r... Read more
Cut Back Run
Saturday, June 04, 2011      2 comments

Love my cut back runs. Every fourth week I cut my run time in half to give my body a rest. This week I ran 6 miles. Temperature was 73 when I started and 78 when I finished. Last week I became very tired and dizzy at the end of my 11.5 mile run ... Read more
