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 →

Yesterday’s workout

Because you care. I decided to give the foot another day off. Plus, I'm scared I will go crazy if I run on it and it acts ugly so I'm delaying expected disappointment. Such a great attitude I have, I know. Anyway, the gym was good for me as it always is. Mind clearing and... Continue Reading →

sweat

I managed a decent cross training workout at the gym last night. See? Yeah, I know. Arm strength is pretty sad. Tonight, we run.

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 →

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...

I can’t make this stuff up

So now I have food poisoning or some sort of bacteria infection according to the doctor's best guess. The night of The Stress Fracture Debacle I did the head in the toilet thing for a bit. I thought I had just stressed myself to the point of illness but then other things began to occur... Continue Reading →

running towards something

So, I've been doing this running thing since about mid-May of this year. I've done this before, starting running (well, walking first until I could jog without dying) and kept at it for a bit and then something or other distracted me or I got discouraged and gave up. But here I am three and... Continue Reading →

hurts so good

My butt hurts.  And my legs.  And my arms some too.  Chick in the Green Shirt (she needs a shorter nickname I think) and I worked out together yesterday.  This was the first time I've officially worked out, as in cardio and weights, in a very LONG time.  We did 30 minutes on the treadmill, a round...

namaste

I've gone and done it again.  I've joined the YMCA.  So you know what that means right?  Yep, it's yoga time once again folks.  After what I felt was a pretty hard class last week I left feeling fairly pleased with myself and thinking "oh yeah, I got this".  And then, the soreness hit me.  Like...
