Hallowed Half and 10K

Well I went and picked up the race packets for D and I yesterday.  Here is a pic of the shirts and I think they are pretty awesome!  I’ll update Sunday what our times are, hopefully less than a 12 min mile.  That’s the goal anyways.  Here’s to drinking nothing but water for three days and eating healthier.http://www.torturedtoes.com/hallowed-half-10k-wake-forest-nc/...more

The Biggest Loser

I feel like I've been in a bit of a life rut lately. Not in a what am I doing with my life/ why am I here kind of rut...but a Why am I treating every meal like it's a wing eating contest kind of rut. In the past I have written a little bit about how it's hard to be motivated for me to go to the gym. I've written about how I love food a little too much. ...more

The Very Great South Run, Portsmouth, 2011

It's an exciting event, no?! I certainly think so anyway. Well, take a look at this blog on the Great South Run. I agree with the advice, very sound, right on target.You NEED to start training. The sun is shining and it's 20c outside at the moment. I have a twisted ankle which has been in a cast for the past month, but I already have a plan of action to get fit when I can manage to walk. WooWeee... one certainly does appreciate their legs a little more when they can't use them for a while....more

10k: check

Salem 10k

Well this is awkward to start...so I'm going to pretend like I don't need some clever icebreaker post or anything.  Just go read the "about me."  So I ran my first 10k last Saturday.  It was I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E.  My goal was to finish without stopping.  I was assuming I would take 70-75 minutes.  Umm...try 58:41!!!  It took me that long to run 5 miles the week before, so I was in total shock.  I have never been more excited than when I saw the clock from a few hundred meters away! ...more

I Love the Smell of Torture in the Morning

Running. Three miles. A 5k's worth. Five miles. Each week it increases. I've yet to find a route I like. The hills around here- they break me. You would think I would be a finely tuned running machine by now but I'm more like a cranky, old dog who has lost her bite. Cross-training three times a week. It's back to Body Pump at the gym since Shredding has effed up my knees something fierce. Oh wait, that's right....more
