“I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life’s greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.” – ANON

Great running yesterday. Woke up at 530am and started at 7am at Silver Comet Trail. Ran a solid 8 miles. Absolutely drenched afterwards. Rested. Ate. Went to office for a bit. Rested. Ate. Ran another 3.5 miles on treadmill in the evening.

Loving my Vegetarian, Semi-Vegan nutrition. Why SEMI-Vegan? Cause I just am not willing to forego half-n-half in the java.

Stay positive. Stay Strong. Stay active.

Oh yeah…i think i need a new pair of running shoes. K-Swiss, baby!

sweet caroline…

I downloaded this song yesterday by Neil Diamond. been singing it LOUDLY in my car ever since. It JUST MAKES ME FEEL GOOD> HAPPY. Ah….NEIL…

Was a pretty good week, overall. 

Got 3 short runs in mid week. one with intervals so that was good. today, i did a AM and a PM run. Felt awesome. 

As you can see from my 2 earlier posts, i did dip into the junk w/ some cookies. But, it has been VERY moderate. to say the least. I’m quite proud. and here is the weird thing; i went out for mexican on Friday and ordered a margarita. get this. I could BARELY drink it. I finished maybe 1/3 of it. WTH? I have no idca. Maybe my body is just in a different place. It was only my second taste of alcohol in about 2.5 weeks. Hmmmm. 

Saturday (yesterday) got up very late and just felt tired all day. was kinda a BLAH day. Crappy weather. I did get out and buy a BED. I’ve been sleeping on a blow-up bed for 6 months(by choice) (ever since I moved) I went to Sears and got a great deal. Other than that, i did nothing. was very lethargic. had a hard time relaxing. 

today was a different story, thankfully. woke up early and had good energy. went for a 6 miler around town. love the quiet sunday morning runs. looked like it was gonna rain at any second, but it held off til later in the day. i got in another 3 miles on the treadmill this early evening. feel great! 

Cheers! Keep Training!
