Gustav Holst – The Planets

The Planets by Gustav Holst is an intriguing and very enjoyable bit of classical music to carry you through an exercise session. Now that that’s out of the way, tonight’s walk/run hurt. My leg muscles are in pain. I’m hoping … Continue reading

Still going.

Ok, so I missed a bit of time since the last time I trained, but it really wasn’t any sort of falling off the wagon again. Truly! I had yet another bout with some sort of sickness, and I spent … Continue reading

Hit the ‘mill again.

I got back up on the treadmill tonight. Betcha thought I wouldn’t do it! Well, if you did think that, I have to admit it wasn’t without reason. I had a weird night of it though. I stretched and started … Continue reading

Some actual exercise.

I actually got off my duff and hit the treadmill last night. I did 2.2 miles in (roughly) 45 minutes (showing that I wasn’t going all that fast). It’s depressing to see just how much fitness I’ve lost after going … Continue reading

Charge! (slowly)

I hit the trails again yesterday. I did 3.6 miles with my one of my sons, half of which was uphill (from 340 ft. to 760 ft.). It wasn’t running, but we walked at a pretty good clip, and some … Continue reading

Picked up the pace.

I ran last night (yay), and it went really well. I was able to run for most of the half hour that I was on the treadmill. I’m running for 4 to 6 minute stretches now. It’s not much, I … Continue reading

Ran tonight. First time in a while.

I finally got a run in tonight. It’s been quite a while since my last run, and it showed. I never got that other walk in that I had planned, and I didn’t run on Saturday. Instead, it somehow got … Continue reading

It still hurts.

I ran this evening, and started off pretty well. I held back the running pace a bit, and kept it up for a bit longer. Unfortunately, after about 14 minutes into the nights run, my left leg started hurting pretty … Continue reading

On the road again.

Well, perhaps not the road, but at least the treadmill. I ran last night, and my legs were the limiting factor this time, more so than breathing. I didn’t really feel like running, still, but went ahead and got on … Continue reading

A good night.

It was a good running night, though it didn’t start off auspiciously. I actually had a hard time getting going. As has been happening all too frequently lately, I didn’t feel like running. But I knew that I had to, … Continue reading

Oops, I did it again.

Well, not “oops” exactly. I ran tonight, and it went all right. My wind is already starting to come back, though it’s not quite back to its pre-sickness level. I did a bit over a mile and a half in … Continue reading

Back at it.

I made it back up onto the treadmill this evening. It actually went better than I had imagined it might go. The week off did have an effect on me. I lost some of the “wind” that I had gained. … Continue reading

New shoes and runnin’.

I picked up some new running shoes this last weekend. The fellow at the running-shoe shop was very helpful. He did a “gait analysis” on me, which consisted of me walking and running, shod and unshod, up and down a … Continue reading

Moving along again.

Tonight I was able to push harder again. I took extra care stretching before and after, and though my left leg grumbled at me a bit, it kept it to a dull roar and so I was able to ignore … Continue reading

Better.

Last night I was able to do my running/walking routine fairly well. This is a good thing. I still had some pain, especially in my left leg, but it was a more general sort of pain instead of an intensely … Continue reading
