Whirlwind Week

This past week went by so quickly. I was so busy at work and at home! In the blink of an eye I was waking up on Friday morning and heading to work… The only thing that kept the week on track was the fact that I took time on Monday to meal plan -…… Continue reading Whirlwind Week

I always tell myself that recovery and comebacks have to start somewhere. I guess my road back into serious training started on Friday night. On my way home from work, I stopped by Dunkin’ Donuts and ordered a small coffee with milk and no sugar, in hopes that the caffeine would help me get to…… Continue reading Somewhere

So the Olympics have only been on TV for four days (I am not counting the opening ceremonies – although I guess I should, because I stayed up really late watching those, too) and I am exhausted!

Winter has arrived in New England – better late than never? That would be my usual spiel… but this year I was definitely benefiting from not having a lot of snow on the ground. I have had to move a lot of my running to the treadmill in the last couple of days – I…… Continue reading Winter

2012 – Day 18 National Soup Day

Wow, I am so ready to hit the hay – but I wanted to do a brief recap before I do. I was able to get up a little earlier than I did the day before, it has been hard to get up so early this week. Is it because it is so cold? I…… Continue reading 2012 – Day 18 National Soup Day
