15 days to go!
Saturday, October 10, 2009      11 comments

Only 15 days until my half. Did 8 miles in 1:35:19; that's an 11:55 per mile pace. It's interesting that I'm gaining speed during my long runs without trying. Imagine how much faster I'd be if I ran more than once a week LOL! No problems... Read more

Yesterday's long run was 9 miles & it went loads better than the 8 miler from 2 weeks ago. Covered the distance in 1:56:12. Things I learned: - Water! Drink it or regret it. I drank 32oz, taking sizeable swigs every 15 mins. - Esp... Read more

Did my longest run EVER today & finished 8 miles in 1:35. Wuhoo! 1-5 were easy enough. During 5-6 the wall crept up on me, but I'm lucky enough to have been there before & smashed through it. A couple years ago, the first time I went thr... Read more

There's still work to be done
Wednesday, September 09, 2009      3 comments

Took me long enough to realize this, but I still have work to do. My body's not where I want it to be, & neither is my relationship to food. I've gained 10 lbs. since the end of June, because I've been living like Garfield. ... Read more

Realized I haven't given an update on half training. I'm still on track though I've tweaked the program a bit. Instead of doing 30-50 minute runs on Mondays & Wednesdays, I ... Read more
My mind hasn't caught up with my body
Monday, August 31, 2009      4 comments

October marks 3 years of maintaining my current weight. You'd think that would be plenty of time for my self-perception to match the reality of my body's changes, but it's not. When it comes to a body image, my brain's still sleeping... ... Read more

Trying new protein powders
Sunday, August 23, 2009      4 comments

Since soy & dairy are out of the picture, I decided to pick up some different protein powders at New Seasons. The non-whey & non-soy powders aren't nearly as potent, but what can I do? I'd rather not live with the side effects of eating stuff ... Read more
Bored with running already
Thursday, August 20, 2009      6 comments

I'm only in week 3 of half training & I'm already getting bored. I cross-train on non-running days & remind myself with each run WHY I'm choosing to do it. Still, I'm struggling with the idea of running 3x/week for the next 9 weeks. I mis... Read more
