Day 40 – He’s baaack!

Sorry it’s been a while.  I promise I haven’t given up.  Here’s what’s transpired in the past week: April 14 – I killed it with a 10:10 pace for 3.17 miles!  Full disclosure: I did stop 2x to talk to neighbors for a decent amount of time and remembered to pause my workout on Fit.

Day 29 April 11 OMG, what a beautiful day!  Everything was near perfect.  Went for a walk with my daughter: 3.06 miles with some significant hills (as evidenced by the pics).

Day 28 – Thankful Part II

Day 28 April 10 Wow.  Just wow.  That picture looked so much better in my mind…SMH Today is Good Friday.  Perfectly named.  Still on my inspirational high from Elise’s email (yeah, I burned ya out!) from yesterday, I continue to be thankful for so much.  I’m thankful that the rain abated for a few hours

Day 27 – Thankful

Day 27 April 9 Today’s a new day, as promised.  For that, I’m thankful.   I had multiple Zoom meetings once again today, and with the rainy weather all day, I really didn’t feel like doing anything…once again.  Then I received an email from one of our female lacrosse athletes (who shall remain unnamed so she

Day 26 – I’ve Gotta Snap Out of It!

Haven’t posted for a few days.  Been in a funk, and didn’t feel like it.  Just being real.  However, I did add to my daily blog at https://nphsathletics.org/practicing-what-i-preach/ Day 26 April 8 Jogged (I use the term loosely) the flats and uphills, walked the downhills 1.87  miles.  11.35 pace.  Absolutely shocking because, despite me doubting that I

Day 23 – Hills and Valleys

Day 23 April 5      4.9 mile walk with some major hill work once again, as evidenced by the fun pictures we took at the top of several hills.  We walked streets we had never seen before, streets that hug the hillsides.  Going uphill was more challenging, but the rewards (views) at the top of many
