Further progress (with digression)
Tuesday, July 14, 2015      2 comments

While I really love the way I feel after running (note that I have never said that I enjoy the experience of running!), I did a lot of reading on plantar fasciitis and came to terms with the fact that running may not happen for months, and it ma... Read more
Signs of Progress

My feet hurt less. I went out and bought some shoes with serious arch support, and as soon as I put them on my feet felt better. I'm sure that's part of it. They are still a little sore (I had to walk a couple of blocks today for an errand, a... Read more
I'm Really Mad at My Feet
Tuesday, July 07, 2015      2 comments

I have spent the last couple of days hobbling around because every step is so painful. I have been forced to accept the fact that, no matter how great the rest of my body feels when I run, my feet just won't allow it. I hate them. It wi... Read more
Happy 4th!

So, I woke up this morning at 5:30, put on my exercise gear, went outside, and it was just too nice out not to run. I did Week 2, Day 1 and really focussed on how my feet were hitting the ground. I enjoyed it so much! I was puffing, hot, swea... Read more
I thought yesterday was Friday?
Friday, July 03, 2015      2 comments

I actually did. I knew it was Thursday, but I kept acting like it was Friday. Probably due to the holiday. Work is pretty quiet. I said yesterday that I would walk every day instead of trying to run. Oddly, I want to cheat on that. I f... Read more
Keeping On, Keeping On
Thursday, July 02, 2015      2 comments

My running practice has been Fri-Sun-Tues, so I have been thinking since Tuesday. My "plan" (more of a vague thought, no actual planning or prep work took place) was to try to walk on non-running days. Obviously, that hasn't been happening. ... Read more
I'm Back, Again
Tuesday, June 30, 2015      5 comments

It's been a long time since I used SparkPeople, but it was helpful, and I can't remember why I stopped. Anyway, this is about the fourth time this summer that I started running, and I decided to go back to blogging my runs to try to help me kee... Read more
Week 1, Day 3, Downhill
Monday, May 12, 2014      1 comments

I overslept today, and went out later than usual. It was a real struggle to convince myself to go out and run, but I'm glad I did. It rained overnight, and was cool and overcast, but not actually raining. I saw one duck. I tried p... Read more
Week 1, Day 2, Uphill
Saturday, May 10, 2014      0 comments

Yes, I'm starting this AGAIN! I haven't been working out or tracking food, and the result is that I'm heavier than I've ever been, I'm short of breath walking up one flight of stairs, and clothes don't fit me. Got to make some major life chang... Read more
Week 8, Day 1, Downhill
Wednesday, July 18, 2012      0 comments

I almost failed at this point, and quit. Last week was really rough - both extreemly hot (100+) and requiring me to be out of the house in the mornings 30-45 minutes before I would usually go. The combination wiped me out. Luckily, MissionMom... Read more
Week 7
Monday, July 09, 2012      0 comments

This has NOT been a good week. It's been really hot, and really busy. Nonetheless, I ran day 2, identical to day 1, on Friday, intending to run day 3 on Sunday. This last did not happen. I overslept, thought I could run in the evening, and c... Read more
Week 7, Day 1, Uphill
Thursday, July 05, 2012      1 comments

This run was made on Tuesday, July 3, but I have not had time to blog about it until today. Under normal circumstances, I would have run Day 2 today, but I was up late last night watching fireworks, and had a repair person at the house before 8... Read more
Week 6, Complete!
Monday, July 02, 2012      1 comments

I haven't had time to blog about it, because my week has been crazy busy, but I did get all the way through Week 6. This is huge, due to the psychological block at week 5 that I have discussed before. Day 3 was a 25 minute run, and when it was... Read more
Week 6, Day 1, Downhill
Tuesday, June 26, 2012      0 comments

I didn't end up finishing week 6, even though I want to point out that I started it. I got past Week 5!!!! That's because I was sick, and then last week, I had to be at work an hour earlier than ususal, which played havoc with the mornings. B... Read more
