Slower, But Okay
Wednesday, June 20, 2018      7 comments

After warm up I ran several intervals .2 of a mile long. My fastest was at 8:40 pace. I was able to finish a tenth of a mile at 8:20 pace, which is actually a little faster pace than I've ever run a mile (8:47 is my mile PR). Then I was hoping t... Read more
Walking to the Sunset and More
Tuesday, June 19, 2018      10 comments

Last eve I finished off my 19000+ steps for the day with a nice walk as our neighborhood cooled down. I know you can't really walk to the sunset, but I could walk to get closer to a good shot of it: ... Read more

Today I saw the red headed woodpecker (no guarantee it was the same one that hid from me yesterday but it might have been). He flew right in front of me to the trunk of a tree close by and had I had my camera, I could have gotten a good picture.... Read more
Walk
Sunday, June 17, 2018      16 comments

My bike tires are flat and the air compressor not cooperative, so I decided to walk to the grocery store for exercise and 2 items I'd need to get sometime anyway. I did the 2 miles square clockwise and once again marveled at the diversity of vie... Read more

Ready for Tomorrow

Today is a day of rest for training. As I step up my training, rest days are a bigger change from routine than when I was just trying to keep a base of running fitness. Tomorrow I will rejoin the Galloway running group for the first time since 1... Read more
One Day at a Time w/5K Pix
Thursday, June 14, 2018      10 comments

The pictures from the 5K Natalie and I ran-walked on Saturday have been posted, so I will share. I told her that when I used to run with her cousin Martin I'd slow to run with him the whole race and then he'd sprint past me at the finish. She th... Read more

When I was growing up we lived out of town, with a truck farm across the street and a chicken farm immediately to the north of us. We had over an acre that included our pony barn. We had a swimming pool, too, so getting kids to come visit wasn't... Read more
Bad News with Some Good
Sunday, June 10, 2018      19 comments

Bad News: DH's A1C was 11 at his latest appointment. He was diagnosed with diabetes at age 59, 18 years ago. The only time he took injectable insulin was for about 3 weeks after his heart attack in 2004. Except for those weeks he has controlled ... Read more

We finished the Summer Sunrise Watermelon 5K 2018 Race One. Hooray. Natalie hadn't trained much (partly because of my injury and recent modified training plan) so it wasn't all fun for her. I felt great the whole way and wanted to go faster. So ... Read more
Great Day

Great day! Over 19000 steps including a run this morning and square dance this eve. Splurged at my b day dinner with asparagus (upcharge) and an extra salad along with my Chilean bass. Yum. And perhaps the scale knew what day it was. Finally I a... Read more

Enjoyed my first really hot run (easy run-walk) of the year last eve! I'm pretty sure it was in the high 80's when I started and about as humid as it can get. Cooled down a bit as I ran. Went about 3 miles. Enjoyed the flowers, the green-green-g... Read more

Yesterday was a good day at Disney. Although I used to average over 20,000 steps a day, and my record is 40,000, my 20,000 steps yesterday was my most for months. At Disney it is fun and easy to get LOTS of steps, especially when the group goes ... Read more
