11/15 - 11/21 Technically the schedule was for 18 miles this past week. It ended up being about 5 miles since I realized I was one week ahead of my couching program. It ends on May 17th instead of the day of the marathon when it was suppose... Read more

Yikes! Every time I try to restart I get pushed back to swing shift. Which kills everything. But I'm back for real and just to prove it. I started my marathon training program today. YIKES! A 28 week intense training program to condition me to a... Read more

Sorry I have been out of the blog channel lately. Things have been very busy in my life. Working lots of overtime to pay my school loans, and not much to track because outside of walking and kickboxing I haven't been trying too hard. I also expe... Read more

No more excuses. Really. My parties are over. I am settled in. I am serious. Illness is not an excuse to eat crappy food. I shouldnt use parties as one either. I shouldnt use visit from friends as an excuse. Every choice is a new choice and ever... Read more

Alright. So I changed the name of my team to 30 in 2011. This seems like a much more reachable goal. I don't know where I saw 50 in 2011, but I know I am no marathoner. I'm not a professional athlete. I have a job, a house, and a (fur)kid to thi... Read more

Monday, September 13, 2010      2 comments

Here comes the honesty. It's sad because I know all the increase in numbers came from last week after the HM. I was a naughty little bunny. My sad stats: Last entry was 8/26 and the numbers in () are how much I gained/lost since then. Fi... Read more

So. Yeah. I don't know what happened last week. It started great. Good food, good workout. Then on Thursday a box of captain crunch crunch berries disappeared (me and the capt'n go way back). Before I knew it, everyday was a wash. The only exerc... Read more

Wednesday, September 08, 2010      3 comments

I don't know where I read this but somewhere there was a challenge floating around (might have been a runners world passing mention) to do 50 events in 2011. I think this might be an awesome thing to try. I'd like one of the events to be another... Read more

Okay, so I am signing in everyday. Trying to track and keep up with my sparkteam Buffalo Gals. I don't want to get behind, but I'm not doing my daily blogs or anything. Not enough time. So far, training has been good. I actually am getting... Read more
