The Uncomfortable Quiet!

The Uncomfortable Quiet! The last couple weeks have been a real challenge for me mentally. I wouldn’t have thought not running or at least running a lot less would have as much of an impact as it has. Today I was actually able to run 7km, it was supposed to be a 5km run but my bodyContinue reading “The Uncomfortable Quiet!”

Training Hiccups

Training hiccups happen to everyone and after some more appointments to try and get my hip and hip flexors sorted out I have been advised to step away from running until it’s sorted out. I have bursitis on my right hip and running is making it very angry. My RMT noticed that my left legContinue reading “Training Hiccups”

Just Keep #Running ….

The last few weeks have been pretty frustrating for me with my training. I was down and out with a head cold for most of one week as well I have been having some issues with my hip/leg.

Challenging Times – But Fun Times!

  The past several weeks my weigh ins have been a bit of a yo-yo. I had had my first gain in early June which I handled well considering it was my first since I started weight watchers 18 months ago. I think it was almost a relief to not have that pressure to sustainContinue reading “Challenging Times – But Fun Times!”

Hello Onderland!

Today I said goodbye to the 200’s.  I still remember the weigh in last summer that I said goodbye to the 300’s and hello to the 200’s. I wish I had started blogging at that point, it would be nice to have that now to look back on and reflect on how far I haveContinue reading “Hello Onderland!”
