Treadmill running in time of Very Unhealthy air quality
Wednesday, September 16, 2020      3 comments

Wow, so a little over a week ago, on Labor Day, I went for a nice long bike ride (long for me 6 miles one way) and then the smoke/air quality plummeted. I should have known by my sinus response to that bike ride that the air quality was quickly ... Read more

So after last Friday's successful run/jog. I ended up wanting to ride that wave and I took pity on my Pitty and took him with me on Sunday and Monday. We only did 2 miles jogging but on Sunday I added on a little walking cool down to finish it o... Read more

Tuesday, July 28, 2020      1 comments

I used to be a runner and I'm not any more. Plantar Faciitis happened in both feet and then I just never got back into it. Distance running never helped me lose weight, so I didn't challenge myself to go back to running. I joined a gym and di... Read more
Want to join me in a Virtual 5K?
Monday, July 27, 2020      1 comments

I signed up for a virtual 5K. I've enjoyed running in the past, but to be honest, without an 'event' to train for, I'm just not running with any regularity. So, with no gym fees since the gyms are closed, I can stomach paying to run a 5K. ... Read more
