Running, Running...Fast As I Can

Well, actually it's more walking fast with a little running thrown in when a rocking song comes on the ipod.  I have been concentrating on my half marathon training this week, plus trying to keep up with my housekeeping chores, so there hasn't been a lot of creating going on.  I did a really long walk (approximately 10 miles...my Nike+ sensor was is the pair of shoes I didn't wear that day.  In my defense, I was in a hurry to get out there and didn't think to check which pair of Nike+ shoes had the dealy-bob in it.  I will check next time I go on that route to get an accurate accounting of my mileage. In other health related news, we are modifying our diet because the doctor encouraged Tom to lose 20 pounds.   I'm sure he would give me the same encouragement if I went...and the colonoscopy speech! Ugh!!! Why do I find the most decadent recipes when we're supposed to be watching our weight?  Asparagus, wrapped in bacon with a brown sugar glaze? Mmmm...I'm making it!!! I have several projects in the works, but no pictures to share.  I really need to straighten up the guest room, which becomes my overflow studio if I let it.  Need to spiff it up for the princess who is coming home soon...Yay!!!! Maybe I'll get on that this afternoon...that and search for some yummy low calorie recipes!

Hi Mary, Good for you..I'll admire from the sidelines..Ha! I'm impressed! I'm sorry I haven't dropped by in so long. I lost your blog on my sidebar when I was changing things up. Oops!

Good to see you again!

Good luck in your training! I have started the "Couch to 5k" program, and I'm all about the walking with a little running thrown in!
