The Chilly half-marathon last month was very humbling. I can’t remember the last time I felt like such a failure, an impostor. I was ending the race surrounded by old people, who were race-walking faster than I could run! I felt I was unfit to be doing that race. I had not taken proper care of myself. I was wasting time and wasting away. I mean, I did finish, but it’s my slowest chilly half ever! The feeling reminded me of a quote from a TV show I watched a long time ago, “The Legend of Korra.” The quote goes:[…continue reading]

Well… look at this poor neglected blog! The last monthly review I published was way back in November. Oops. I’ve been a little busy, maybe too busy. But hopefully things will be settling down soon and I can get back to regular blogging and some sort of routine. I haven’t been recording my hours of sleep, nor my weight on a regular basis. But I will soon. So, what have I been up to for the last 6 months? Not too much… 😉 I ran four races: the Chilly Half-Marathon, Around The Bay 5k, Mississauga Marathon 5k, and paced the[…continue reading]

November 2016 Review

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. My word for October was relief! I’d say my word for November 2016 was RENEW: I tried getting back into a routine of going to the gym, I started tracking my food using myfitnesspal again, and I joined a Running Room half-marathon clinic, essentially renewing my commitment to running. Continuing this feature I started in January here’s November’s monthly summary at a glance: November 2016 at a glance Starting Current[…continue reading]

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!
