Sunday Running Report: Benched

I got chikungunya and took a forced hiatus from the blog.  I’m not quite back to normal.  My body still feels like mush.  My muscles are not as strong as they used to be.  For this and other reasons I have made two important decisions about my running. 1. I deferred the San Juan divas half marathon.  I just don’t […]

Sunday Running Report: Taking it Slow

The last two weeks have been rough on my body.  TMI ALERT. The new thing that happens is that when I’m exposed to something that I’m sensitive to, like perfume or fabric softener, I get these crazy intestinal cramps. This has left me with a few days where I was in too much pain to run. Also I was very […]

Sunday Running Report: Slow down

The thing about chronic illness is that you can only manage it. And sometimes, despite your best efforts something will come along to derail your plans. That’s what happened last week. Sunday’s run was hard, but I pushed through and after 2 miles I found my stride. On Monday I really didn’t feel like running. I could not figure out […]

Sunday Running Report: Slow and steady wins the race

This week my plan was to achieve last week’s goal of four workouts.   I was doing really well until Wednesday when I had to slow down to let my icky stomach heal.  That was ok because I did not have yoga at Ti Kaye which meant I could run on Thursday. My body had other plans though.  I lay […]

This week my plan was to have four workouts.   I didn’t get to do it because I had to spend Thursday and Friday resting because I did not feel well. I still taught all my yoga classes.  I find that just teaching and doing restorative postures at night has really helped my running.  Also I am loving my new […]

Sunday Running Report: New shoes

2 Sundays ago, my feet didn’t hurt so I taped them and went for 4 glorious miles.  That Wednesday my new shoes arrived and I immediately took them for a spin.  I didn’t get as many runs or swims in that I wanted.  On Saturday I went to church and a funeral.  I forgot how much sitting for hours on […]

Sunday Running Report: Sans running

I didn’t run.  I had a serious fibro flare up and learned to accept that fibro affects my mood.  All this while being very busy growing my business.  I still need to buy paper cups and get a foam roller.  I did buy new shoes although it may take a while until they get here.  I have been using Asics […]

Sunday Running Report: Catching up

Other than realizing that I have no idea where my good running shoes are this week went well. I swam a lot more.  I was really surprised my endurance while swimming.  To think I only learned to swim 10 years ago.  Also is there any easy way I can figure out my mileage while swimming.  I realized that I had […]
