Needing time off?

My colleague mentioned that I am getting to obsessed with calorie counting. She thinks I need to take some time off from Sparkpeople. I do wonder if I could maintain without logging, but I'll admit I'm very afraid. I'd also miss all of you. ... Read more

My doctor's appointment is for July 9th, so not that far away. I'm going to cross train with my oldest tonight and we'll see how I feel tomorrow. I feel fortunate that I only have a 10k on Sunday. At this point, I'm not going to push it so tha... Read more

I'm getting worried. I have only run two or three times a week with last night's run being four miles at a nice easy pace. Within an hour after stopping I started getting sore. I don't mean muscle sore, but a soreness that seemed to go into my... Read more

Today my leg was a little sore from my run the other night. I've just come to accept that I'm going to have little aches and pains when I run. I will finish out my one run a month and next year I may have to re-evaluate my workouts. Today... Read more

I couldn't do it! I figured I had taken three "rest" days so I ran. It was a nice easy pace of 10 minute miles and I ran four miles. It was very humid and I did stop for some sweat wiping, but it felt great! As I ran I thought about my ol... Read more

I think I figured out what I did, with the help of others, of course. I believe I pulled the muscles in my chest. My bike is a tad too big so I have to lean over to grab the handlebars. Between that and the huge hills and the way I ride, I ma... Read more

I'm listening to my body and all of my Sparkfriends. I'm taking a day off. I realize that I only take one day off a week, most of the time. When I don't run, I usually ride my bike, strip horse stalls for a couple of hours, or do other "farm w... Read more

230. That's the number of today. I exercised 230 minutes. 55 minutes of walking work and the dog. I counted only 60 minutes of walking at the zoo, although we were there almost 4 hours. (I had no idea how to count the zoo trip. The kids walk... Read more

I got out and ran last night! I ran 9.4 miles and averaged 10 minute miles. I was quite happy with that. However, today I am sore. I literally have a pain in the butt. Ok right under my butt, but I'm still sore. I'm also a little sore ... Read more
