I’ve finally managed to get a bit of a running practice/groove going on here. It has been 10 years since I ran a marathon— (it appears that I am still wearing the same running shoes!) and although I have only ever run the one (there were a few half-marathons in the year or two beforeContinue reading “Run, run, run away…”

Not waving but drowning…
I really think I need a different hobby… This running thing is KILLING me, which is kind of strange since I have been running very little lately. I’ve been THINKING about running a great deal and driving myself insane… I need to figure out this IT band thing, and I need to figure out aContinue reading “Not waving but drowning…”
I miss running. I miss running a lot. Lately as I been driving like a crazy woman to work and back, picking up and dropping off children, I will pass places that I used to run when I was training for the marathon. It is the “far away” places that get to me the most.Continue reading “Run-iversary”
…Ain’t No Cure For The Summertime Blues
As much as I love summer and the opportunity to break with the monotony of schedules, the racing from one activity to another, the juggling, the “lets GO! everyone in the van!!” I am certainly finding, in terms of ” getting things done,” I thrive in that atmosphere, when there are a billion things to getContinue reading “…Ain’t No Cure For The Summertime Blues”

Shortly after Friday’s not-so-good-due to knee-IT Band-problems -run I had to take a bit of a reality check. My plan to “take it easy with every other day 6K’s and doing another 10K the next Friday was perhaps not the best plan because as much as I want that to be an easy week, forContinue reading “Let’s get real”
Mamalegato’s going metric!
Just thought that I would get the word out there to all you readers (lol!) that I will from now on be recording all my mileage in Kilometers- it was always a slightly uncomfortable thing for me to be talking about “miles” run but my training programmes were always American and therefore always in miles.Continue reading “Mamalegato’s going metric!”
