    diary of a non-jogger – uuughh

    OMG!Mountain! Mo and I only got out one last week to fight that mountain. It was extremely painful for me this time around. Walking up the mountain gives me sharp pain in one place and I even resulted to lying down on a bench and trying to stretch it out. Didn’t work. It goes away as soon as I am on a downward slope though. I don’t know what it is. Something is pinching in a not good way. I don’t get this problem when I walk or run on flat land, so I know it’s all up-hill related. Up a STEEP hill. I tried running but that wasn’t quite…

    diary of a non-jogger: new shoes, new pains

    C25k – Week 3, Day 1 (this time with a WORKING app!) I have been feeling out of sorts all day. Kind of bloated and nauseous and I will admit the McD’s cheeseburgers I had at lunch were probably not the best idea (I do not need a McD’s lecture in the comments. I won’t listen and I don’t eat it often and normally when I do, I feel fine.) I think my body didn’t want both burgers but I’m so used to eating two that I just scarfed them down without thinking and I have been feeling way to full since then. Even now – it’s after 8pm and…

    diary of a non-jogger – #runningisstupid

    c2k5 – week 3, day 1 – not quite successful Aside from learning that the Ease Into 5K app for android phones doesn’t work for crap (it didn’t save my run today at all. I apparently ran 0km in 0 minutes. LOVELY!) I am having one of those “I will never be able to do this” days. I tried to do the Week 3 run (and rather than change the SIM card from my current phone to my iPhone like I have been doing, I thought I’d try my android phone… nope. Not going to do that again) and I learned that I can’t do it. At least, I can’t…

    diary of a non-jogger – still determined to BE that unicorn

    C25K Week 2 Day 1 – third time’s a charm! The last month was a bad combination of extreme heat & humidity (45C/111F) and then a really bad illness (that I was certain was mono, but now that it’s almost gone 4 weeks later and Shawn started it last week, it was likely just a really, really, REALLY bad virus!) The last time I went out I needed Shawn to pick me up because of a major dizzy spell. This was while I was still sick, but thought I was getting better. Wrong! I could hardly keep my eyes open the last month so I was sleeping off the swollen…

    diary of a non-jogger – july is not the best running month

      Hey, so I keep meaning to update this blog with more than just jogging posts but I never seem to find the motivation. I have a different post already started about other things, but each time I sit down with the intention of blogging I get restless and distracted.  I’m a day-time blogger, really, so if I can’t find time at work to update (and trust me, I can’t. Soooo busy.) I just don’t feel like sitting and writing when I get home after a long day. Alas. Even now, as I try and write this particular post about my run this morning, I’m all over the place. Not…
