A Sedentary Lifestyle is just not for me.


So, its been interesting being a non-runner.  It definitely has its perks, don’t get me wrong – but I don’t think I like it. It has been nice to NOT go outside in the cold. It is nice to have

I Just realized I have been neglecting my speedwork!


Last night was a procrastinating night.  I knew my rest-days were over, and I had a 3 mile run on the books.  That’s it, only a 3 miler.  Well I kept finding reasons to put it off.  I spent some

A Runner’s High and Elevation are two VERY different thing!


So this weekend, like all of my recent weekends (and upcoming until Oct. 27th)  is my long run.  My habit is to do my long runs on Sunday.  I had a heck of a time mapping out a route, as

Running at Midnight.


Ok, So I exaggerate a little.. I was actually done before midnight. Having been up late (hey! 11 is really late for me! I’m old!) the night before, there was no chance of getting up in the morning to work

A couple of runs, and a boy returns!


Another beautiful week begins!!!   I can’t speak for everyone out on the interwebs, but for me – it was a great weekend. 4 Miles on Saturday, 3 miles on sunday and my son got back from Bermuda! Saturday: I went

Never sore where you think


Last night I hit my bowflex for a nice workout. My thought is that by swapping days of running and lifting, I give my Plantar Fasciitis a chance to heal (in theory), while working on the upper body/core that I

Running and Rolling


So, my last couple of posts have glossed over any training – while focusing on my fundraiser/giveaway.  Rest assured, I have still been working on my training! Last night, I went out for an easy 3ish miles (I accidentally gypped

#Juneathon Day Something or Another – The Treadmill and Bowflex


So I had this thought.  Now it was partially born out of the fact that I didn’t have clean running shorts, and my manpri pajama pants were awful comfy, but it was still a thought. If impact levels make a

#Juneathon Day 11 – A nice (short) run.


The inclusion of the word short in the title above, in no way represents any sort of insult or negative connotation toward short people.  For the record, some of my favorite people are short. I believe that a person’s height

#Juneathon Day 7 – Pending


So, my Plantar Fascia was a bit sore this morning.  To be clear, this wasn’t suprising as I was hobbling yesterday – starting an hour or two after my run.  I don’t know if it was from the run, or
