Fitness Friday 48

      7 Comments on Fitness Friday 48

I hope everything had a great Thanksgiving!  Mine was rather low key – slow morning, 3 mile treadmill run, shower, call with the parents, and dinner at the house of one of the boy’s coworkers and her family.

While for some that may not be something spectacular, for me it’s a sign of good things to come.  A sign that my lungs are getting stronger and I’m not allowing my asthma… Read more »

Thursday Thoughts – Running Motivation

      10 Comments on Thursday Thoughts – Running Motivation

I’m going to be honest, I couldn’t get out the door yesterday.  Part because my body was sore and felt like it needed rest (so I listened!) but part because I was lacking motivation.  There was an easy switch by taking the planned rest for today, having it yesterday and hitting the pavement for my run today.   I did… Read more »
