I regret that I’m getting later and later with these monthly reviews, but at least I am getting them out. This blog has regrettably been a little neglected, and perhaps that is reflective of me neglecting myself and my health. September was rough, and it’s word of the month was NECESSARY. If I had to pick one word for October, it would be RELIEF! Not because anything went particularly well, but because nothing went too awfully wrong. Continuing this feature I started in January here’s this month’s monthly summary at a glance: October 2016 at a glance Starting Current Change To Go Weight (lbs.) 216.2 220.4 +4.2[…continue reading]

I had such high hopes for September. Unfortunately it started with a sputter, and a cough 🙁 August‘s word of the month was RISE . Because a lot of things happened this month, not all of them necessarily by my choice, I’d say my word of the month was NECESSARY!

Late again with the monthly review. But, it’s out before the following month ends, so not entirely late! July‘s word of the month was YES. I’d like to think August’s word of the month was rise! Continuing this feature I started in January here’s this month’s monthly summary at a glance: August 2016 at a glance Starting Current Change To Go Weight (lbs.) 208.2 213.8 +5.6 Fat (lbs.) 63.2 65.6 +2.4 30.9 Goal This Month Annual Average Hours Sleep 8.00 7.26 7.30 Starting Current Change To Go PMP PDUs 52 52 0 3 This Month Year to Date Running KM’s 38 km 593 km My[…continue reading]

Summer-Fall Training Plan 2016

7 weeks to a half-marathon?!

So, I’ve been slacking and in a funk. I haven’t run much since the Mississauga Half-Marathon. I took almost a whole month off, then injured my knee, back, and ankle. I’ve actually been fully-healed for weeks, but haven’t had the will to get out and really start training again. As my slacking intensified, I’ve realized I won’t be able to run the Oakville Half-Marathon, and I’ve withdrawn from pacing it this year. If I hadn’t already registered for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Half-Marathon as the 2:45 pacer, I would have given up hope for any sort of running this season. But[…continue reading]

It’s been a while since my last update. That’s not a good sign I’m afraid. But I think I’m finally back. June‘s word of the month was UNFORTUNATE. I’d like to think July’s word of the month was YES! YES to back to training. YES to having new goals. YES to making progress in my health. And one other very, very important YES. Continuing this feature I started in January here’s this month’s monthly summary at a glance: July 2016 at a glance Starting Current Change To Go Weight (lbs.) 207.4 208.2 +1.2 Fat (lbs.) 57.9 63.2 +5.3 28.5 Goal This Month Annual Average Hours Sleep[…continue reading]
