Daughter is off on her trip. It was an early morning as she needed to be at the airport by 6am so I was up by 4:50 for an early breakfast and to get ready for my interview that was scheduled for 8:30 downtown. I figured that I'd have plenty of... Read more

Like I said (quickly) last night, I got a late start yesterday on my 12.5 mile run. First off, I overslept!! Didn't wake up until 10am, hung around after eating a protein-rich breakfast and ended up going to have a light lunch with my daughter.... Read more

I went for a walk tonight with my littlest puppy. We walked 0.9 miles in 15 minutes. I wanted to keep it light because I'm running a long run tomorrow but more on that once I finish it. I believe I'll go out and run around Lake Zorinsky inste... Read more

I did a 20 minute seated resistance band workout (Coach Nicole) from SparkPeople. There wasn't any way I was going outside to do anything - it was 94 degrees at 5pm and felt like 103 so I was determined to stay indoors and I needed to get some ... Read more

Ran around my neighborhood tonight. I wasn't digging the hills so I zigged and zagged around the (flat) streets and ran up the smaller hills. I hit streets that I haven't covered by running in quite awhile, though I walk them every once in awh... Read more

Oh, boy, it was hot, hot, hot today! 97 degrees when I went out for a walk with the doggies tonight so we only walked a little over a mile (1.12 miles, actually) in 24 minutes. The dogs were panting like crazy by the time we got home. It felt... Read more

I got out for my 30 minute run today. It was getting a little late before I had a vehicle available to drive to the trail I wanted to run and it was nearly 90 degrees. I nixxed the idea of running in the neighborhood because I didn't feel like... Read more

Yesterday (day 607 of my exercise streak) I took the doggies out for a 28 minute walk. It got a little tough coming up the last hill for my older doggie and I ended up carrying her for a block or so. It felt like I was nearly dragging her towa... Read more
