I'm still on track with workouts and I'm so glad! It's less than 2 weeks until the marathon (I'm doing a 5.4 mile leg) and I'm still feeling strong! I didn't have the greatest run on Sunday and I'm OK with it. It was raining and I completely ran out of gas. I could almost feel exactly when it happened. I'm not sure why because I ate a normal dinner the night before and had my typical giant date dipped in peanutbutter pre-run. Anyway, I'll be running on the treadmill in the morning and hoping…Continue
Each and every pair. Yay! Even though I've only lost a couple of lbs I'm starting to tighten up from all the running and weight training. I keep repeating my mantra in my head, "I'm getting stronger everyday."
Have a great weekend!
I received a really, nice compliment from the trainer that's now instructing my morning class. The class is full of marathoners, women younger, taller, stronger than I am so that was really good to hear! Things are going pretty well. I feel bad that I haven't been blogging recently.

I'm still only at 4 miles and I've cut back to running…Continue
Over and over again I'm told by professionals that I need to strengthen my core. I now have shin splints and sure enough, due to my weak core, the way I'm holding my pelvis (due to weak abs) when I run is putting too much pressure on everything else. Why does it seem so impossible for me to do this? My legs and back, shoulders and arms are fairly strong, but I cannot seem to make any progress on my underlying abdominal muscles. I think I need to break down and start taking Pilates classes.…Continue
in a good way, sort of. Not in a "tears of joy" kind of way, but in a release of pent up feelings kind of way. It happened to me again yesterday. About half way through a tough spin class I could feel tears coming, and not because it was too hard (and it was very, hard). It was more about recent tension at home and at work. Luckily we spin in the dark and I was able to compose myself pretty quickly, but other times I cried for a few minutes. I don't think anyone noticed. Anyway, after class…Continue
