remember to breathe...

remember to breathe...
So for a brief moment, ok since yesterday through this morning, my “get up and go”, my enthusiasm about training is in the back seat now…trying to kick open the door to get out.  Yep, it’s trying to make a break for it.  Coach Jen has my schedule in…running, strength training with Ashley at HiFi,...

that's nice, but you're going to have to start over...

that's nice, but you're going to have to start over...
Yesterday I met Ashley Bond at HiFi Personal Fitness at noon for our first session.  I had planned on taking pics, or having Ashley snap some of the carnage.  But honestly, we got into a groove and the hour zoomed by!  I was sort of like, “that’s it?” when we were done. Ashley had me... Read more »

weigh-in wednesday, year 2, week 3...some bad and some awesome

weigh-in wednesday, year 2, week 3...some bad and some awesome
I will not freak out…I will not freak out…I will not freak out…shhhhhhhhhhhhhit.  I didn’t panic today..I did know I’d have another gain yesterday. I’m a little disappointed, but dwelling on it won’t solve anything.  Sitting around time is done, it’s time to get back to it. At noon I’m heading over to HiFi Personal... Read more »

trying to shake it off...

trying to shake it off...
I’ve talked about feeling that “itch” to get back to training.  I’m excited…but at the same time, I’ve had an odd feeling creep in there…fear.  I’ve talked before about being freaked out about a backslide; that I’ll go and gain the weight back.  Rationally I know it won’t happen.  But with doing little the last...

who wants to go for a run?

who wants to go for a run?
This year on of my big goals is to “pay it forward”.  I talked about wanting to mentor someone last week but soon after I shared that post I had a bit of a nagging thought.  I started to wonder if and why I should only choose one person to mentor.  I’m not sure I... Read more »

next week, it's back to work...

next week, it's back to work...
Coach Jen and I talked about my goals for this year, one big one I set…which is sort of vague…is to get stronger and faster.  I wasn’t sure how to quantify it and thought it best to not try.  Both Jen and I thought it would be good to bring someone in to help focus... Read more »

weigh-in wednesday, year 2, week 2...
It’s week 2 and the results are in.  I gained 0.lbs this week.  Meh.  Not great but considering I haven’t done much of anything since he marathon, it’s understandable.  I also allowed myself a treat or two since the marathon, which is fine. But I can’t keep doing that.  I decided to get back to... Read more »

my feet and my plan...

my feet and my plan...
You know you’re in for an interesting talk when your new podiatrist walks in to talk about your x-rays and says, “you have a lot going on with your feet.” Good news, nothing appears to be broken.  I do have pretty flat feet, appear to have an extra bone on the top of my foot,... Read more »

rest is nice...

I can’t lie, I’ve rather enjoyed the rest this week.  Today I’ve laid low and hung out with the girls.  Hell, I’m still in my pajamas…and it feels awesome.  After a year of busting my ass and running the marathon, it’s a nice way to celebrate it.  The downtime has given me a chance to...

what would you do if you were given a second chance?

what would you do if you were given a second chance?
Today is my birthday…well, sort of.  One year ago today, I sent an email that changed my life.  Today is a great day! Before getting into things, if you haven’t done so already, go read Dave’s marathon recap…you really should.  Go on, I’ll wait here…and take some Kleenex, trust me.  You back now?  Ok, good…now...
