#Janathon Day 9 – LA Fitness treadmill

Sadly, today WAS warm enough to run outside. At 4 o’clock it was 38 degrees.  Unfortunately,  I don’t  get out of work until 5:30, followed by a drive  to the supermarket, drive to choir (eatting the dinner I bought at

#Janathon Day 5 – the treadmill

So, running on the treadmill means no cool multi-colored maps, or neat charts showing splits. That’s it… that’s my picture.  I used the first tenth of a mile or so to warm up (aka set my music up,) and then

Traveling to other Gyms. Review of LA Fitness in Towson (435 York Road Suite 300, Towson, MD)

So my son had an extra practice this week, which meant Gym time!!! I decided to go try one of Baltimore’s other offerings.  First off this place was a royal pain in the butt to find.  It’s not that the

#Janathon Day 6 – treadmill run, and a discussion on sleep.

Day 6.  Slept a little rough, with some really, really weird dreams.  The sort of dreams that you wake up with your heart pounding and your head full of emotion and confusion.   The last of these times I woke up,

#Janathon Day 5 – rest day and discussions on watching food.

Not a whole lot to say today, a slow mile running.  It had a nice 1/2 mile walk before and after to make sure I burned the calories I ate today.. The day at home was mellow – my wife

#Janathon Day 3 – Snow Day?

So it wasn’t ACTUALLY a snow-day in the sense that my kids think of them.  I still have to go to work today, just two hours late!  As I knew there was a couple of inches of snow on the

Running at Midnight.

Ok, So I exaggerate a little.. I was actually done before midnight. Having been up late (hey! 11 is really late for me! I’m old!) the night before, there was no chance of getting up in the morning to work

Rest day and the dreadmill

So, after my 12 miler on Sunday, Monday was a “Rest” day.  So I did nothing. :)  Well, I may have done some whining about how sore/tired my legs were – but I’m not positive.  I will have to err

Never sore where you think

Last night I hit my bowflex for a nice workout. My thought is that by swapping days of running and lifting, I give my Plantar Fasciitis a chance to heal (in theory), while working on the upper body/core that I

#Janathon – Cake and Running Re-start.

I suspect that at this point, after being sick and then waiting for my injuries to heal, that 10 days off disqualifies me from claiming to be a Janathon participant.  At this point, I am looking forward to Junathon to actually
