Had a great group run this morning with my new Galloway group! The Program Director and PD Assistant have changed the groups again, so that my group ran intervals of 2.5 minutes/walk 1 minute, rather than 2:1 like last week. Overall I had ... Read more
Mind and Heart Open
Thursday, June 27, 2013      22 comments

I just read a blog that touched me greatly and taught me, too. This struggle is really, really tough for many people. You would think by now, with more than 5 decades of fighting obesity and binge eating, and currently feeling rather victorious,... Read more

That's Natalie with the cast of the Aristocat. She loved the play. And that stuffed animal she's holding? Believe it or not she won the drawing! She also won a dozen donut... Read more

Enjoyed a 5 mile run with my Galloway group this morning starting at sunrise. The Program Director adjusted the group assignments and I'm now in the fastest half marathon time improvement group. The middle group, where I thought I was being assi... Read more
Think of Me as Quick and Witty - Please!
Friday, June 21, 2013      24 comments

As you read this confession today, I want you to remember my blog from yesterday in which I highlighted myself being quick and witty. Ummmm. In case you didn't know it, I'm not always that way -- case in point: yesterday's training run. Since I ... Read more
Eating Like a Horse
Thursday, June 20, 2013      22 comments

This morning at the senior dance, where hubby and I had a good time "cutting a rug," I sat next to my good friend from the Y, Bertie. She is definitely the most flamboyant dancer on the floor and arguably the most talented. I know she is quite a... Read more

Running Predictions
Sunday, June 16, 2013      17 comments

According to Jeff Galloway's miracle mile formula, my recent mile run time of 9:25 predicts I should run a 5K in 30:54. If I use my best ever mile time of 8:47 that predicts a 5K time of 28:56. But in mid-April I ran a 5K in 27:33, considerably... Read more

Endorphins, a Mixed Blessing
Thursday, June 13, 2013      18 comments

Monday when I ran it felt so good. It had to be an endorphin rush. A few minutes after I was done, though, the second toe on my left foot started throbbing. I did not feel any problem at all during the run. If it wasn't for the endorphins I prob... Read more

The sports massage was an intense and wonderful experience. Wow, do I feel loose and pain-free right now. I can see why so many people highly recommended this massage therapist; he seemed very knowledgeable and caring. I'm going to walk today t... Read more
