Week #6 Goal: Get Up and Move Every Waking Hour

Days I work with clients are easy to get movement in for hours straight.  My job, thankfully, is quite active. But the days I do the “business” side of work, or writing or other work from home, I just don’t move much.  So, about 1/2 of my week is spent highly active, and the other… Continue reading Week #6 Goal: Get Up and Move Every Waking Hour

Action Step # 18–Commit to A Half-Marathon Training Plan

All right, so I am one of those people who needs a solid goal to meet, else I wander about aimlessly, accomplishing little.  It was time to get going on something, since my running was intermittent and sporadic.  So, I have committed to training for a half-marathon at last.  I don’t know which one I’ll… Continue reading Action Step # 18–Commit to A Half-Marathon Training Plan
