Tag Archives: blister


20 Oct

I walked all gimpy today.  I popped the blister on the bottom of my right foot tonight.  The blister was from the brainiac idea I had yesterday of running over 3 1/2 miles, for the first time, on the treadmill with no socks or shoes.

No run today.

I told myself, when I first started blogging, that I needed to be consistent and write a post once a day.  I’ve done that for months.

I started to blog for the main purpose of logging my mileage and to keep myself accountable for continuing running.  I like running.  Running makes me feel good (usually after) overall.

With the help of my blog and from reading other blogs, I’ve accomplished a 1/2 marathon and a full marathon when I never ever thought I’d any more than a 5k.  Pat on the back for that, right?

I’m not done running by any means.

Why so serious?

I’m consumed with the well-being of my father.

I’m consumed with the well-being of my mother.

You haven’t heard the last of me but I am toning it way down because my mind is elsewhere.

Any runs I do, for a while at least, will be a bonus to everything else that’s going on right now.  Running was never my main focus.  My family always came first but it’s going to be pushed back to the far back burner for now.

Peace out.  Chow.  Talk with you soon, I hope.


I’m burnt…

8 Jul

BOING!!! Right out of bed.  Not quite.  Started today with a run at 7:33am.  Temp started at 57  and ended at 68 degrees.  I ran a total of 11.5 miles (average 8:29 pace).  Stopped for 2 drinks of water and one potty break and one picture op.  Listened to Jack White on Pandora but it was acting up today so I switched over to my regular IPOD — Good stuff!!

Popped the same blister on my foot for the third day in a row (no pic, sorry). 

Check out my Hens and Chicks (mine are looking a little obscene right now)….

Then, check out this freakish display of Hens and Chicks I saw on my run…

Came home to sleepy boys on the basement floor.  Roo had a buddy over (and Brucee went and stayed at a friends the night before).  Mine sat up immediately and said, “Xbox”?  Being the nice mom I am, I proceeded to take their picture and said, “NO, stop asking”. 

Did some hand weights and some miscellaneous toning exercises.

Took the boys to a friends house to enjoy their pool.  Lots of sun and lots of splashin’.

Me with my sweet nemesis son Roo (15 1/2 yrs old)….

Somebody needs a pedi….

Mick finally showed up (he’s the one w/the worker’s tan)…

Took Sophee to her beauty appt at 3pm in the middle of the whole hoopla… She wouldn’t model for me but check out her new pink bandana.  The boys will remove it tomorrow when I’m not looking, I’m sure.   When she’s up and about she looks like a big cute cuddly puppy. 

Got home at 10:15 and called it a night.  I can’t stay out too late.  I get sleepy.

Oh, and I got burnt…
