Just how much does life change over the years?

MissyFoy -

Tomorrow night I’m going to my high school reunion.  This is the first one I’ve ever gone to and I’m so excited about it that I’m wondering why I never went to one before now.  I was never mainstream back in high school – I was disinterested in the social scene (or maybe the social […]

My Running, My Diabetes, My Dissertation

MissyFoy -

There are three things in my life right now that I obssess over pretty much all the time:  my running, my diabetes, and my dissertation.  The combination of the three make me pretty crazy sometimes, well a lot of the time.  But, they also make me look crazy pretty much all the time!  The three […]

A few random running items

MissyFoy -

First item:  Well, I did it – I got in two hill workouts this week!  I did the second one today.  I feel like I’ve turned the corner with this hamstring injury.  Finally.  The hills went well; I’m still slow on the ups, but my push-off is definitely getting stronger.  Another item:  I’ve been talking […]

Another 18 miler this morning:  2:17:01 this week.  Hmm, a little better time but it didn’t feel any better than last week.  Isn’t it funny how we go along thinking ‘this is never going to get any better’ and then all of a sudden one day we go for a run and we feel great?  […]

MissyFoy -

After a slow run this morning of a little under 11 miles, I made protein shakes in the blender.  As I was making the shakes for us, I thought that maybe I should post this concoction for others.  All you need is one blender, skim milk, whey protein powder (something called 90% whey isolate – […]

Hills in North Carolina in the Fall

MissyFoy -

I ran a hill workout on Tuesday!  I was excited to get started and the enthusiasm lasted until, oh, about 5 minutes into the hills.  Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth … and my neighbor drove by on his lawnmower and yelled out, “are you having fun yet?”  Ha, ha, ha, ha, so […]

The Long Run Test Run

MissyFoy -

I ran the 18 miler yesterday.  It went okay, nothing spectacular.  I ran pretty slow; for a course that I normally run in a little over two hours, I ran 2:20.  Hmmm.  Heartrate was fine, breathing fine, legs not so much.  I still have some catching up to do there, but it’s getting better every […]

A Little Faster Each Day … Knock on Wood!

MissyFoy -

Each day my runs are getting a little better.  This past Thursday, I ran 3 miles before PT in the morning and then 10 miles in the afternoon in 75:30 and felt pretty normal.  Yesterday, I ran 5 in the morning and a little over 7 in the afternoon in 53:18 – heart rate 126 […]
