Another Good Check Up
Thursday, May 16, 2013      29 comments

Yesterday I met with my new doctor and got the results of lab work. Overall cholesterol was 169 -- not bad, especially when it had been 240 when I was heavy. The best news was the HDL. It had been very low and my previous doctor was glad to see ... Read more
Setback and Job Decision
Wednesday, May 15, 2013      25 comments

I woke up wanting to run this morning. It was in my heart and soul - wanting to go, go, go, free. But when my feet hit the floor this morning, a whole section of muscles rebelled and told me that today is not a running day. Yesterday while tryin... Read more

Hey, I found one more 5K picture from Saturday the 11th. I don't think either foot is on the ground in this one: They still haven't posted the pictures taken at the ... Read more

Yesterday was a hot day and the kids enjoyed the new pool. It took me an hour to blow it up, but I think it was worth it. Natalie likes the spray feature; Gwen not so much, but she loved the pool. ... Read more
When I Was a Lot Older

The pictures of yesterday's 5K haven't been posted on the Lakeland Runners Club website yet. I also had 2 friends who came to root for me. I know them from the YMCA and from the senior dances. They said they'd get a finishing photo of me, but I ... Read more

The 34th Annual Mayfaire 5K was a success. I finished upright, smile on my face, wanting to do it again. My time was 29:02 (or there about) which earned me 3rd place in my age group. Tomorrow I will have pictures to post. Tonight it will be a sh... Read more

My training for the 34th Annual Mayfaire 5K, the largest race in our community, is as completed as it is going to get. The race is Saturday evening at 7pm and over 1600 people are expected to participate. I couldn't do the whole training plan du... Read more
Unexpected Challenging Opportunity
Tuesday, May 07, 2013      24 comments

I got a call from the nonprofit agency I used to direct. They've fired my successor and now they want me to help fix a mess and get things back on track. There are people I would really like to help, but I'm not sure I remember enough to be much... Read more

I'm playing around with cropping and opening the front door for my natural light. Let's see: ... Read more
Finished Project

I read a signature block, and I don't even remember whose it was, but it said that any day you can run is a great day! I'd been feeling just a bit sorry for myself over the sore rear end muscles, but that saying helped put it in perspective. Tod... Read more
Slow Hills Predicted

Nothing much profound today. I've been eating well the last couple days. Keep this up and I'll be right back to where I want to be weight wise. Then, can I maintain it? We'll see. Took a day of rest today as far as formal exercise goe... Read more
Ideal Weight
Wednesday, May 01, 2013      32 comments

I set a goal to achieve and maintain a weight of 126 by the end of 2013. How am I doing on this goal? It was back in December when I set that goal. I saw that in 2011 I weighed 124-131, while in 2012 I weighed more like 128-134. That is no... Read more

Good news is I ran 3 miles this evening with no real pain and just the hint of soreness in my left glute muscle. I didn't push speed, but ran comfortably at about 9 and a half minute per mile pace. The not so good news is that my running co... Read more
Rest and Reschedule
Sunday, April 28, 2013      22 comments

I've accomplished several tasks that I probably would not have gotten finished had I done my usually run yesterday and all my training this week. For Christmas I was given a big collage frame that holds 25 pictures. Yesterday I got it all the wa... Read more
