That's a milestone

Today I'm bouncing back. I did the local race call the Aching Quad. My friend was the one who was ready for it, except that she was sick earlier in the week. I did what I could to train for it. There weren't many at my fitness level, because it'... Read more

Hi Sparkers: Full disclosure here - my weight is up, and it's not where it is stated but I keep it there because I'm headed back and it reminds me of what is very possible. I have an intensive weekend coming up - no, I wouldn't say I'm read... Read more

Starting from the beginning again. Not frustrated, it just is what it is. Weight went up, did something to my knee, so I have to take it slow. I've got 2 5k's in October, so training focus has started, even if I'm walking. Hope you are staying t... Read more

I was planning to be productive this afternoon, and I just got slow. I finally packed up and came home where I took a nap, then dammit, got my gear on and went out to run. 5 minute walking warm-up and I lasted more than 5 minutes with an okay sp... Read more

I checked my settings and didn't see any place where you can mark the page private - with the exception of only sharing with spark friends. I was stunned when I did a search and a spark blog came up. It was a good blog, but it make me wonder abo... Read more

Has anyone thought of this before/ I have a morning egg salad I like - mash a hard-boiled egg with a fork, add cottage cheese and Mrs. Dash. High protein, no added sodium etc. Simple, easy, satisfying. Have a wonderful Mother's Day w... Read more
omigosh a running streak!
Tuesday, April 21, 2015      4 comments

I think this is week 6 of my self-designed program to gradually work up to 20 miles. I did NOT meet my mileage goal last week, but I stayed in the game. Early in that week my body was giving me too many fatigue messages and much of my time was d... Read more

My running buddy and I were all set to run a 5K race tonight. The rain was light but the lightning... they held the race after a delay, but the lighting was still too close for us. We found a dry place and ate the light meal that we were suppos... Read more

Hi Sparkers. Ooops, haven't been here much again. Well, I have still been working on my physical fitness though I may need to blog more to help me learn the discipline I need for run training and cross training. I have a plan for eating that is ... Read more

Hello Sparkers! I do miss checking in and I love that the new mobile app makes it easier. I'm having problems finding a good team. I seems to find inactive ones, or ones that lean to one topic, and then again, I'll have some that I'll alwa... Read more

exercising while on vacation
Saturday, August 02, 2014      6 comments

I'm doing it! Actually, I don't really like the attitude of "you're on vacation, you don't need to exercise." I prefer - I'm on vacation, I've got time to exercise! I have been out a couple of times and found a couple of trails in my and my... Read more
