Regarding: Slow is Fast


My first gym-treadmill picture!  The time was blinking.  Took a couple of snaps before I caught it in between blinks!

I know my fast is probably your slow. But I don’t care.  I am working on achieving full-time residency in the pain cave. Getting comfortable with being uncomfortable.  And I have to start somewhere.  So, for someone (me) that usually runs in a 5.3mph comfort zone, this felt FAST (6.0mph for you non-math majors).  When it stops feeling hard, I will either increase speed or add another mile.  Thoughts?

Today is my session with Bryan.  Those gliders were the instruments of the devil last week.  I am hoping we do something different today.

Who is watching The Voice?  I have to say, I am not agreeing with Mr Shelton and his choices in the battle rounds.

I have a LONG list of things to do around the house and errands to run.  I remind myself that I don’t have to get it all done in one day.  I will just keep plugging away at the list.

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.

  1. Funny that we are heading in opposite directions. 6.2 to 6.5 is my normal on the treadmill, but if I am to last 12 hours come May, I need to slow it down some, so am TRYING to survive at 5.5 at the moment. I want to go FASTER, but am staying steady. I need to do an hour at 5 to 5.2 one of these days and then stay there. I have a 6-hour long running session coming up the weekend of the 17th, so we’ll see how I do. I am tempted to do it on a treadmill, just so it is easier on my calves and tendons…but 6 hours in a gym???? I have to call PT today and set up an initial appointment. Hopefully they can work magic in 10 days (or enough to survive 6 hours).

    Nice run!! Be proud of yourself!
