One day after hills training and I can safely say I survived. I’m not going to lie, it was brutal. It can only get better and I can only get better.
This post goes out to all my Blue Nosers who ran or walked the 5k last year. On Tuesday we hit Citadel Hill for hill training. I was not ready for that! A total of 8 runs up the hill with everyone hitting the top on the 5th go and about 30 seconds of cool down […]
So, got on the scale with Personal Trainer Jane at Goodlife on the week-end and it wasn’t what I expected (meaning: up). My calm outward persona quickly entered meltdown mode. Didn’t matter that I knew why. I didn’t trash the “plan” or suddenly change as a human being. As a result, no more can […]
So my first run was last Saturday and I couldn’t have asked for a better day. The sun was shining and the temperature for February was mild. I have to say I felt pretty good about the whole run. The 1 minute walk and 1 minute run was a great way to start. I’m actually starting […]

After a great month of social events at classroom sessions we finally had to strap on our running shoes and start moving. Saturday morning was our first training run. Relocated to the Halifax Common rather than Point Pleasant Park on account of icy conditions. I was up much earlier than I needed to be, […]
It was a gorgeous, sunny, mild morning in #Halifax …….felt like Spring and that in itself put a spring into my step………..right up to the point when I slipped on a sneaky large, clear, ice patch disguised as pavement……..a gentle reminder that it’s February not April. New sneakers feel great! Thank you #NewBalance Lots of […]
