feet frustration

The best laid plans... I seem to fail a lot. And this time it's not even because I'm being lazy or procrastinating or anything like that. Its because I can barely walk in the mornings and throughout the day after sitting for a while, and although the foot pain eases, I can't go more than... Continue Reading →

Days 3, 4, 5, and 6

I've obviously missed a few days of posting so am just going to combine things here to catch up. Never fear for I am still on track y'all. Day 3 was a cross training day so I did some weights and hopped on the bike at the gym. Day 4 was a rest day and... Continue Reading →

Day 2

It's 11:30pm and I have to work tomorrow but I refused to crash and burn on Day freakin' 2. So, 3 mile wog done. Humid but breezy. Walked into a zillion spiderwebs. What is up with that?

Summertime

Here we are, in the throes of summer. It's been a whirlwind so far. Austin with our friends was fantastic and I should share pics but I always say that and then never do it. Bad bad blogger. I had a solo work trip to the ATL which was alright as far as work trips... Continue Reading →

yo yo, etc

Good news. I got a killer haircut and color today. Also, I'm back to my normal level of crazy vs. bedridden crazy. The darkness ran its course and is in the background until next time. That's just the nature of it. My entire body is sore though and I feel stiff and creaky. I think... Continue Reading →

mish mash

Whew, it's only Saturday afternoon and this weekend has exhausted me already. In all good ways though. On the job search front...I applied for what looks like an amazing position and got a very positive response the next afternoon. The HR representative said they were interested in talking to me about it and she sent... Continue Reading →

stuff ‘n thangs

I'm over the holidays and Christmas "vacation". I'm ready to go back to work. And now there is the threat of Snowmaggedon on Sunday night so there's more than a snowball's chance in hell that Monday will be a snow day and I will go crazy. I'm overly dramatic, I realize. Its been awesome to... Continue Reading →

i should be sleeping

Its after midnight and I should be sleeping. But its a full blue moon and my brain is whirling. Today was busy and somewhat annoying but it ended better than it began I guess. I started off weepy and weird and missing a friend and worrying about some very serious family health issues. I'm still... Continue Reading →

Rainy run

Today's run was much much much better than my last one. My only goal was to finish the scheduled training day (5 min run/1 min walk for 48 min, plus warm up/cool down) without crapping out. Goal accomplished. 4.1 miles in the rain. Have I mentioned how much I love running in the rain? Minus... Continue Reading →

Four miles

Run/walk/sweatfest/triednottodie on the greenway today. I got four miles in and was happy with it for the most part. I didn't make it out the door at 5:30 as planned, as I'm not good at plans apparently. So it was hot as blacksmith tongs by the time I did get out there. I did decent... Continue Reading →

Pac-Man is cooler anyway

So, I'm old. As if you didn't know. I did not run last night, but instead fell asleep AGAIN with the offspring. However, I hear you tsk-tsking at me and you should know that I DID get up at 5:15am and get my run in this morning. Nanner nanner nanner.It was much better than Sunday's... Continue Reading →

body betrayed

I've rested my foot for the past three days. Two of those days I rested completely and cross-trained on the other one. Today it was time to get back out there. I walked the dog first and got in a 1.4 mile warm up. Then ran/walked 3.4 more miles. It wasn't pretty. I got through... Continue Reading →

bedtime smedtime

An early bedtime? What ever was I thinking? I was in bed before 11pm though, so that's better than the night before. Kiddo had dance class (cutest thing ever, btw), and then we went to eat, and then kiddo bathtime, bedtime routine, story...So its 9pm by then and the dog needs walking. I don't remember... Continue Reading →

time spent

Today was pretty great. Hubs was off work too so we took the kiddo to school and spent the day together. We went to the gym and got our sweat on, then rode the motorcycle to a monstrously large parking lot so he could give me riding lessons without endangering others, next was vegetarian sushi...

the latest

I'm more like Melancholy Melanie today rather than Crankypants McGhee. Progress people, it's a slow thing sometimes. Memorial Day weekend turned out nice. I won't recap the details but here's a list of sorts...family walk on greenway, family cookout and subsequent soccer playing, trip to the zoo, puppet making and puppet show, gym, toy mini... Continue Reading →

re-entry plus randoms

Back to work today after what feels like a zillion days off. Productivity was negligible but I considered it a win that I even got there on time. Its the little things sometimes. My brain is all over the place which has never been unusual but it's especially bad here lately. I'll do better tomorrow.... Continue Reading →

trumping tiffany’s

So, today....the first day of 2013. Quiet day with kiddo and The Accountant, for the most part. I got a nice run/walk in this morning before the rain, kiddo and I went to Target for miscellany and then to Jersey Mike's for sandwiches. I went to a movie by myself. The movie was pretty bad... Continue Reading →

So, this happened last weekend...My first 1/2 marathon! Successfully completed with great friends. I really can't believe how much fun I had with these girls and am so lucky to be able to share this accomplishment with them. We walked it and ran a bit here and there and finished ahead of our projected goal.... Continue Reading →
