Today has been amazing. Started off with an 8.13 mi run. Then later did a 10.13 mi walk with my sister. We talked and laughed and enjoyed each other's company. I'd hoped to do the walk with all three of my sisters but only one was available. She... Read more

Envy: desire to have a quality, possession or other desirable attribute belonging to (someone else). I don't know whether the term 'runner's envy' actually exists, I came up with the idea on my way to work this morning. I passed several ear... Read more

First things first... I have a pair of trousers that I have not put on for quite a while. It gets forgotten easily since the material is not stretch and because of this, a few extra inches on the hips become very obvious. I decided to try them... Read more

I have not done fitness blender workouts for a long time. I decided to get back to them on Monday and yesterday I woke up with some serious but sweet soreness (Delayed onset of muscle soreness). The soreness persisted to today. This led to a bit... Read more

So this past week I ran five times, doing a total of 30.74mi. I'm slowly getting to the point where I enjoy running. The hills are still really tough, and my route has many hills. But nothing can beat the feeling I get at the top of every hill. ... Read more

I was just feeling really lazy. I hit the snooze button several times even though I knew I needed to go out for a run. I kept telling myself I deserved a break, and yet I wasn't really tired. I'd had a good night's sleep and I was feeling fresh.... Read more

First off, after reading another member's blog, I've decided it's time to stop putting myself down about my running. So I will declare here and now that I am a runner. It's not about how fast, how far or how frequently I run. Just lacing up my s... Read more

I woke up yesterday with a great plan. The plan was to do some cardio indoors then head out for my Saturday morning run. I try to run at least twice a week. But after 1.5hrs of cardio, I begun to feel like I had not had enough sleep. So I decide... Read more

Today has been one of those days that just get really busy. I woke up for some cardio before heading out for my 6.2mi run. I felt a bit sluggish and my run was a lot slower than usual, but I did it and that's all that matters to me. I ... Read more

I took the day off to spend some time with my boys today (they are on their mid- term break). I woke up early and braved the cold. I had intended to do my normal 5.6 mile walk. But I was listening to radio and there was a lady giving a powerful ... Read more

I love walking. I listen to music as I walk and completely get lost in my thoughts. Fact: However tired I am, going out for a walk makes me feel energetic. Fact: However hot it may be, there is always a cool refreshing breeze in the area wh... Read more

I can't believe it's been over a year since I posted a blog entry. Things have been a bit difficult - changes at work and I'm back to school. I'm doing an online MBA course and it's quite difficult at times. But I'm still trying to stay active. ... Read more
