Running Plans And Otherwise

It’s been a couple of weeks since I ran. I was hoping to resume last week but recovering from my not-a-glamp camping trip took the better part of a couple of days and then the next few days got so busy what with trying to catch up on all that I had missed. Hopefully, this…

Speaking of running

And speaking of running, (because aren’t we always)… I laced up and ran a little bit this morning. My knee is still bothering me, and I’ve taken the bandage off so I am running around with a huge open wound on my knee but there is a part of me that just doesn’t care how…

Laid Back

Unbelievably, it’s goal time again and this time I am happy to post my new goals because just a  few hours into the new week, I’ve already started accomplishing them. I have a camping trip this weekend so the days before will be pretty consumed with planning for the trip and then executing the plan….

Just A Work In Progress

For the sake of completeness, I am sharing my weekly goals even though we’re almost midway through the week.  However, since it’s so late in the week, I’ll also tell you where I am with meeting these targets. Read the Bible everyday – yes Read 4 books – I’ve already finished one and am set…

Time For A Checkup

Thursday seems like as good a time as any to check in on the goals I set this week and see what I have to double on before the weekend. This week, I planned to: Read the Bible everyday – check  Read 4 books – so far I’ve finished one and am halfway into another…

The Week That Was

Last week, I didn’t post about my weekly goals because I was focusing on my monthly recap and intentions. But I did write about them in my journal so I’ll tell you now that I planned to: Read the Bible everyday – I did Read 3 other books – I finished 1 and started 2…

Halfway

I’m halfway there. After this morning’s run, I got a little notification that I’m halfway into my #ToughGirlChallenge running goal of 100 miles. At the beginning of May I started the daily workout challenge that I started with my virtual running-buddy and I’ve been keeping up with that by running at least a mile every weekday. In June, though,…

June to July

It’s in the bag. June has ended. In fact, the first 6 months of the year are behind us and the long days of summer are officially here. With these longer hours of daylight, it becomes a little easier to get things done. I wake up earlier, go to bed later, and because I’m getting…

Summer Running

I’m in week 8 of the daily workout challenge that I started with my virtual running-buddy and getting a little bored with my daily running routine. Every morning, I lace up my sneaks and without spending time to warm up, I start running as soon as possible. Usually, I am hurrying because I’m trying to beat the sun coming…

Finish Strong

Finish Strong. That’s something I used to hear when I ran with the NYRR. I’d be close to the finish line, panting with what felt like my last breath, and an eager spectator or volunteer would shout out what they thought was encouragement but for me, sometimes felt like just an annoyance… Finish Strong… meaning,…

Run My Life

This week, my running goal was to run 12 miles over 5 days. Monday was the start of week 7 of the daily running challenge that I started with my virtual running-buddy and I announced my intention for the week in this post. So did I actually accomplish that goal? Let’s see. Monday goal: 2 miles I ran 2 miles …
