The Off Month

Let’s get real here. I haven’t done any real running for a month. At a time where I should be doing 50+km a week with long runs of 30km… I’m barely doing 20km with my longest run over a month ago and that was just 24km. It’s five weeks til the marathon I’ve registered for. … Continue reading

Carb-Balance

So, there are a lot of silly things people do to their bodies. (Like running through injuries, but it’s not about that today.) What I’m doing right now, is going low carb. Not to worry, it’s not a permanent thing. What happened is that last weekend I found myself on unfamiliar ground. As someone who’s … Continue reading

The Weekly Recap

So, I quite suddenly started running again on Tuesday and I’ve been trying to get in a run on my regular days since. That’s Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. 🙂 I think I might have started too early seeing as how I’m sitting with an ice back on my knees right now. Argh! Can I … Continue reading

The Heart’s Still In It (Even if the Knees Ain’t)

I did something unplanned today. 🙂 I ran. I honestly had no intention. My knees are better, but still a bit sore so I had planned to wait a bit more. It’s been two weeks since my last good run and ten days since any attempt at running. For these two weeks I’ve been consumed … Continue reading

Would you like a little cheese with that whine? (Or – Addicting Foods)

I came to a realisation today. (Unfortunately.) I like food. I like cooking. You’d actually be hard pressed to find foodstuff I’m not a fan of (maybe just olives… which I don’t dislike, just never buy myself. Oh, and any kind of celery, hate it with a passion.) But other than that… I’m good. Now, … Continue reading

Staying Active and Eating Well

I had this daydream that the next time I blogged the knee pain would have already magically disappeared. (Sometimes aches and pains do that, right?) Unfortunately, that’s not the case. 😦 The good news – it’s not worse. The bad news – pretty much feels exactly the same. For those of you asking, it’s located … Continue reading

Up and Down and Tough Decisions

I really haven’t felt up to blogging since last Tuesday and my last good run. I know that stuff happens, but running for me is a happy making activity, and when I’m not running… I’m not happy. (That simple.) And I’m not running. 😦 I also have no idea at this moment when I’ll be … Continue reading

High on PB (and That’s Not Peanut Butter!)

Yup. That’s right. Still running. Running through the fatigue. It’s possible, I’m telling you. 😉 A little bit of tape and ice has vastly helped the knees as well. I felt so energetic when I woke up today. A bit earlier than intended – my cat was hungry and decided to take a nice sharp-little-paw … Continue reading

Week Sixteen Recap

(Of course I ran.) It’s so hard not to. Good news, I taped my ankle and it felt fine. One of the knees is still off, but not painful. 🙂 I know, I know, I need a break. Because I’m a wee bit insane. 😉 But I already have a scheduled break of five days … Continue reading
