Day off #1

Today was the first of my two days off before the weekend. I got a lot done that I have needed to do. I went running in the morning. I wish I could run in the morning about 8:00 everyday. It is nice out and not crowded. Work just keeps getting in the way! I …

sprouts galore

The garden seems to be off to a good start. There are plenty of sprouts coming up. I watered a bit today, but since rain is supposed to be coming tomorrow I didn’t over do it. Before all of this I did my nightly run. Tonight was hill night so I headed out to the …

SPEED Day!

It’s Tuesday again and that means speed training.  I waited until after 7:00 to head to Harmon Field and it paid off. It was crowded for a bit, but by 7:30 most were gone and I had the track to myself. Speed training is much easier on the track mentally because you know exactly where …

Back to work Monday

Once again I was not ready to go back to work today. I am enjoying my new hobbies so much and being outside that the thought of being cooped up for 9 hours a day in the office is really not appealing. I need to start going outside on my lunch hour and walking or …

Very busy Sunday!

I had the most productive Sunday and now I am beat! I got everything done I wanted to today and more. I started my day by heading to Harmon Field at 8:30 for a 5 mile run. I wanted to beat the heat. I barely did – by the time my run was over it …

Peppers and Geese

I had a lovely day today doing a variety of things. The day started with the race in Spartanburg that I volunteered for. I got to run the little timing machine. I was pretty fun – a beautiful day and lots of nice people around. I really like being at the finish line and cheering …

The big 6-0 and radishes!

So, the first good news tonight is that my one pound loss this week finally brought my to a total loss of 60 pounds. I am very pleased. 40 more to go! The next good news is that my radishes are sprouting in my garden! I just planted them last weekend so this was a …

Ran out of time today

Today was a long day. I had to work 8:00-7:00 and got a good bit but done despite having to sit in the meeting 4 hours this morning. It was not as dull as yesterday. I learned that adidas is a Foreign Trade Zone and that seemed to be a pretty important topic. We are …

Head for the Hills

Tonight was cross training night and I really wanted to be outside after a long day of sitting in a stuffy meeting room with 12 other people. I wanted fresh air and I didn’t really want to go anywhere or be around a bunch of people. I decided to put on my trail running shoes …

I forgot. How hard. It was.

SPEED TRAINING! Tonight I went to the track for my speed training. I haven’t done any speed training since 3/17 so it has been awhile. The park was crowded around the track, as usual, so I had to plot out 600 meters. I did my warm-up and found my .37 mile stretch that I would …
