Friday Night “Special”

Thoughts on Fasting and 48 hour protocols It's Friday night here, after a long week. I don't know if anyone else has ever had a problem with this, but back in the day, Friday night would be the night I bought/cooked/ate something "special." It was often a "reward" for surviving a challenging work week (and... Continue Reading →

Sometimes You Need a Break

This week I am focusing more on active minutes, such as standing and stepping. Stuff I can do indoors. We're going to take it easy this week. If I go outside (and I make a point of it), it won't be to any city centers anytime soon. Running is waiting for me, and I look... Continue Reading →

Run with a Mask or No?

I debated with myself a bit yesterday about how I would approach the morning. I needed to complete two runs by Sunday to stay on track with RunBet but the air and the heat this week have been unusually challenging. The sky has been red--the sun blocked by haze and smoke. I posted before and... Continue Reading →

All I need is the air that I breathe…

After a couple of sleepless nights and a day off from running, I decided I had better get out there and run. I’m particularly a super committed runner, but when I have a #RunBet going (and I do at the moment) it is enough to make me push my limits. I knew it was going... Continue Reading →

Outdoor Running in Record Heat

This morning at about 5 AM Pacific, I posted the following worry on Facebook : OK, so water, a bit of black coffee, water. A bit of salt…I should be fine out there, right? I mean, I used to run in this kind of weather in Texas, in Basic, when I was in my 20s…and... Continue Reading →

The Heat is On!

It's dark outside, and it feels like the dark hell you experience on Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. I didn't find that part entertaining, and I... Continue Reading →

It’s just a few words

I live in a great neighborhood. I laced up for my 5th run of the week and headed out. I was running on the street, crossing intersections. Usually there’s not much traffic but today there were a few folks turning left in front of me. An old battered truck not using a turn signal. And... Continue Reading →

Living by the Numbers / Fighting Time

I’m someone who likes to track numbers. Calendar dates, meeting duration, time running, distance. Weight. Number of hours fasting. Or feasting. I’m always looking at goals and percentages too. 60% there. 70%. 80%... If the scale says I’m up by 7 pounds overnight (and it has, I assure you), it can ruin my day and... Continue Reading →
