Hello Friends. It’s Been a While

Yes I know I’ve been MIA for a bit.  Let me explain.  See I live in the middle of nowhere which means that I have satellite internet service.  It is slow.  Notoriously slow.  And if I use up my allotment, well it gets even slower.  Just checking up on posts can be problematic and if… Continue reading Hello Friends.

Summary – March 20 – 26

OK let me just start off by saying that I’m a bit cheesed with myself.  It wasn’t that long ago when I would run double digits for a training run and now here I am barely crawling through seven kilometre runs.  The fact that I’ve been having nagging issues with my foot does little to… Continue reading Summary – March 20 – 26

Summary March 6-12 (AKA how I discovered gravity)

Back from vacation and into the real world.  Ugh.  Now despite taking a ton of opportunities to get out and hike with my dogs, the exercise was far from intense.  In fact the only thing that was high intensity was the eating.  Ya there was a lot of that.  My plan when I got back… Continue reading Summary March 6-12 (AKA how I discovered gravity)

My Revulsion for Resolutions

OK folks.  Its time for another ranting post.  It does kind of follow with the recent series of posts for beginners so it’s not totally out to left field.  Let’s see…where did I put that soap box… ah here it is…now give me a second here… This is the season of feasting and merrymaking and… Continue reading My Revulsion for Resolutions

Summary – December 12-18

This week the wheels came off the fitness train.  My foot was still feeling really sore after my date with gravity so running seemed like a bad idea.  Then having to unexpectedly run Piper to the vet first thing in the morning really upset any work-out plans for Tuesday.  Somehow she developed an abscess on her… Continue reading Summary – December 12-18
