The Home Stretch

If there are any other teachers among my readers, you can attest to how insane the last weeks of school are. It seems that every year, students realise that school’s about to end for the year when there’s about two weeks to go, and every year they get really worried about their grades and extra credit assignments … Continue reading

It’s not running without shoes and taping

Really, it’s not. 🙂 Instead of the well-deserved rest after the Saturday race last weekend, I decided to go on a 12k slow and easy in the blistering heat the next day. Well, I can say that it took me no effort at all to keep to a 7 min/km LSD pace then. 😛 It … Continue reading

Season Kick-off!

Well. Five weeks to my half marathon and today I ran the first official race of 2014 in my calendar. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting anything close to my last year’s 38 minutes. I’ve literally been swamped with work and family obligations to the point of where I’ve hardly had time to sleep. I’ve … Continue reading

The Secret Life of Me

I was all set to do a post of my triumphant return run (40 minutes of nonstop running after a two week break) or about the gorgeous spring sunshine that makes me smile (complete with pictures) or the fact that getting a wisdom tooth pulled turned out to be not a big deal of any … Continue reading

The Running Accident

So. I’ve been following the ease into 10k running plan since late December. I did weeks 2 and 5 twice (due to a bit of a cold) and this means I’m officially in week 9 out of ten now. So far, it’s been the same run three times a week, getting tougher every week. Last … Continue reading

A Picture is Worth…

Ironically, with a post entitled like this, none of the pictures showed up. Weirdly same seems to have happened to my previous post as well. I do all my blogging from my tablet, so has that happened to anyone else? I’m going for a second attempt from the laptop now. Here goes nothing! *** 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

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
