Progress comes in many forms
Sunday, February 28, 2016      3 comments

I was afraid to get on the scale. And as I feared, no weight loss. But, I know that you can lose one week, not another, and then lose the following week. I don't give up on that. My progress though came not in weight loss, but the loss of inches... Read more

Well, my first week back at Sparkpeople and I have success. I am following the 28-Day Bootcamp and I did well. I lost 1 pound this week. Yay! I feel more energized even after just one week. We had 60 degree weather yesterday and I decided to go ... Read more

My last blog entry was in 2013 when I ran the Hartford Marathon. I blogged through my training then on race day. It was an experience I will never forget. And, it is one I would love to repeat. I have gained weight due to a medical condit... Read more
Marathon Day!!!
Monday, October 14, 2013      3 comments

Well, been a month almost since my last entry. Was a hard month with my training lacking and the fact that I couldn't seem to master a 20 mile run before the race. This fact worried me considerably. I got lots of encouragement from family and fr... Read more
Marathon Training - Week 20
Sunday, September 15, 2013      1 comments

I feel like I was beat up today. I had a horrible night sleep and my hip acting up so my 20 mile run today was more like 14 miles. Ugh. I was not a happy camper about that. The entire run felt just bad from the word go! I kept pushing in hopes t... Read more
Marathon Training- Weeks 18 & 19
Wednesday, September 11, 2013      1 comments

I was very much looking forward to my 20 mile run. I am not sure how I have been able to keep up with these increases since my training hasn't actually been text book. Or, followed too closely to the plan. But, I somehow have been able to. I thi... Read more

I hate set backs. Ugh. After my last long run, getting my training in through the week was challenging. Then, Saturday hit and my back began to spasm. I was in so much pain just walking. So, I didn't do the shorter run scheduled for last Sunday ... Read more
Marathon Training - Weeks 14 & 15
Tuesday, August 13, 2013      0 comments

Had to write for both weeks because I missed last week and for good reason, I didn't run. I had a car accident and was letting my body rest before stressing it with a run. So, two weeks off and it didn't do me good but I did manage to get my run... Read more

Well, I am a few days late on this entry but, better late than never. It wasn't a bad week for training. Got a good run in during the week, some swimming, and I got my long run of 14 miles in on Sunday. I felt good through the whole run, until t... Read more
Marathon Training - Week 12
Sunday, July 21, 2013      0 comments

Well, a very nothing week for training. The humidity and the heat wave was too much. I mean, it just sapped the energy out of you just walking to the car from the front door. :P Now, last week with the pulled hamstring I had decided to take it e... Read more
Marathon Training - Week 11

So, a slow week for training. We did have a dry day but I woke up with a sinus headache so didn't get out for a run on the only best day of running this week. I did get my 12 mile run in today though. It was tough during the second half and I co... Read more

Well, it would be nice if the weather was better for this training. Two weeks running now of heat and humidity and no relief in sight. The only thing I keep telling myself is that with training in this weather, running in October ought to be a l... Read more
Marathon Training - Week 9
Sunday, June 30, 2013      0 comments

So, the week began okay, but still having a hard time working in the training runs with this humidity so strong. So, I did get a run in but not as long as I wanted because the weather just did me in. So, I decided that people do run in this, so ... Read more
Marathon Training - Week 8
Sunday, June 23, 2013      0 comments

So, not a bad week. I did get some training in though not all of it due to my schedule being thrown off with my car out of commission. Needed a ride to work so getting the full runs in was difficult. I ordered new shoes as the last ones I got di... Read more
Marathon Training - Week 7
Sunday, June 16, 2013      0 comments

So, not a bad week though I didn't do all my training runs. I need to work on that more especially with the increase in my long runs on Sundays. Used my new shoes today on my run but I can tell they aren't going to be the shoes for the race. Tri... Read more
