Yeah, I know, it's hard to tell. Because it hasn't changed from two weeks ago when I updated it. And in those two weeks, I have exercised every day except for 2. As, I'm sure people can see, I'm having problems. I don't think I can eat any l... Read more

OK, so the other day I was complaining. Don't get me wrong, I haven't stopped being upset with myself. I also need to buy a battery for my scale so I know it works. But, I did my weekly runs. T, W, and Th. Wed. was 5 miles on the treadm... Read more

I am desperate. I have made some positive changes in my life, and I have also made some negative changes. Positive - I changed to a plant-based diet. I am not completely vegan because I cannot eat soy or soy products due to an allergy, ... Read more

I admit, I have not been on here for a really long time. Not too sure how long I will be here; life might get in the way again. But here's my issue(s), and hopefully someone will be nice enough to read and then give me some advice. Issue... Read more

I have taken a little time off from running, and allowed myself to think about my decision to stop running full marathons. Don't get me wrong, I'm not changing my mind. I am absolutely OK with my decision. But I'm coming up with a do-able pla... Read more

My marathon yesterday was crazy slow - closer to 6 hours than 5 hours. But, I was on pace for a 5 hour marathon at the half. Once I got past mile 14, my body just quit. I couldn't do it any more. My first half was 11:25 pace, and my second w... Read more

Columbus marathon goals
Wednesday, September 28, 2011      2 comments

It's time to post the goals for this race. Obviously, my ultimate goal would be a PR - under 4:30. But, I don't think I will do that - I haven't trained that fast. So, I think my goal is going to be 4:59.59. I'm pretty sure I can do that, i... Read more

I have not been on Spark for a while. I have been really busy with a lot of things. I was originally VERY upset with the way Spark was tracking my fitness, because I have turned into such a fat slow runner - it kept telling me that I was walki... Read more

OK, this drives me crazy, and it would drive you crazy too if you were a slow runner like I am. Right now, my pace is usually between 12-13 minutes per mile. But it is RUNNING. Always RUNNING. Never WALKING. Never RUN/WALKING. ! How co... Read more
Plan for the week of Januare 23-29. KISS
Sunday, January 23, 2011      2 comments

You know, Keep it Simple, Stupid. For weeks now, I have had my running friends assure me that I can prepare for a marathon on two runs a week. Well, they may be comfortable doing that but that's not for me. When I run two times in a week, ... Read more
What a week (warning: tears involved)
Friday, January 21, 2011      7 comments

OK, so I didn't put a fitness plan in here for the week. Maybe in my heart/head I knew I wouldn't be able to stick to it 100%. This has been a crazy week. My long run on Saturday was AWFUL. I mean AWFUL. I just couldn't keep pace... My ... Read more

OK so I didn't do EVERYTHING that I had on my agenda last week, but I actually have what I consider to be legitimate reasons for skipping what I skipped: Sunday - done Monday - done Tuesday - not done at all (ended up being a rest day -... Read more
