Group Marathon Training 9 - HILLS and an NSV
Thursday, March 01, 2012      4 comments

Hills are our friends! That's what Rich (the primary walking coach) tells us, anyway. And considering The Pig is a hilly course (it's Cincinnati, not like you could really avoid hills here), it's good to practice right? Right! But FIRST, w... Read more
Group Marathon Training 8 - Chilly but we did it!
Saturday, February 25, 2012      7 comments

First of all, if you're keeping track, we missed another mid-week group training run this week. Things at work came to a bit of a head on Tuesday and I worked myself into a headache that could have gone into a migraine, so I took Tuesday night o... Read more

It was a BEAUTIFUL day for a walk when we got up bright and early on Saturday! I was READY! Picked my daughter up at 6:15 and we were at Bob Roncker's in O'Bryonville by 6:45 AM, plenty of time to check in, check things out, hit the potty and ge... Read more

Well, okay maybe not exactly. Just hitting a wall I had hoped I wouldn't hit I guess. So I got some news before I left work on Wednesday morning. That last hour or so of work was actually rather eventful with news from several fronts (most... Read more

First of all, I want to thank all my sparkfriends for putting up with my whining yesterday. I was REALLY down most of Sunday, and knowing I had mainframe maintenance looming when I came into work just made it all that much worse. Happily the mai... Read more

I feel like a slug. No really. I made a conscious decision to take Friday as a rest day, in anticipation of walking 11+ miles on Saturday. I was all enthusiastic about walking in the snow - I was READY! Until a) I ended up sleep... Read more
Group Marathon Training 6 - Getting In The Groove

I think it's starting to gel, this whole marathon training thing. Not that I'm there or anything, I'm just finally falling into the rhythm of the process. I was tired when I got up from my "nap" after work on Wednesday, but jazzed about ge... Read more
Individual Marathon Training Session 5 - Just Do It
Tuesday, February 07, 2012      7 comments

Mondays seem to be big for "just not feeling it" I'm finding, at least the last couple of weeks. Maybe it's the getting up earlier than I usually do. Maybe it's the fact we're doing it at the gym (don't get me wrong, I LOVELOVELOVE my gym and my... Read more

The last ingredient I need for my polyjuice potion this week is "Extract of The-Transfigured-Being-To-Be" - This means a bit of the person you'd like to transform into once the potion is completed. Take a moment and think about who you wan... Read more

Group Marathon Training 4 - THAT'S More Like It!
Thursday, February 02, 2012      6 comments

You know how when you haven't done something for a while, you can forget how much you enjoy it until you're actually in the middle of doing it again? I did NOT want to get out of bed yesterday. We hadn't gotten to sleep until about 11am (go... Read more

Tuesday, January 31, 2012      6 comments

I took it easy on myself tonight, since I hadn't been to the gym since Thursday. No big exciting 10 minute runs, and in fact I only ran 3 times through the whole thing, but focused more on walking form and speed. Still, not an unrespectable 5K t... Read more
Marathon Training vs. Real Life = Not Always Easy
Sunday, January 29, 2012      6 comments

*sighs* It's been a busy few days. On Thursday I had a date with my heart-son Lukey, who turned 12 on Monday. I DID get to the gym early that morning, but I did not win the battle regarding movie popcorn during Sherlock Holmes 2. Or S... Read more
