My 2 miles worth

short 1.5 maybe miles Mon  It was spitting rain, cold and windy so I cut my neighborhood loop short and didn't go across to the ocean. Music was not memorable but Robin Williams later that night was.

Tues and Wed. 2 miles All on the Beach Rd.
Weather Tues. was gray and windy
Weather Wed cleared up the afternoon and was sunny and very pleasant.
Music Tues was a new Rickie Lee Jones album.  imagine Rickie Lee Jones singng ballad standards.  Some very nice cuts.  The album opens with On the Street Where You Live
Music Wed. Olabelle - harmony oriented alt. country.   strong gospel flavor  neat stuff.

I need to get on my schedule for making entries.  and maybe set up a template.
What do you think Elizatbeth?

I'm Back?

Well, I'm back on line. I'm not walking yet because I hurt my foot a few weeks ago - my toe is still swollen and very uncomfortable. But I am back to watching what I eat and doing what I can to be healthier. No alcohol today for the first day in ... OK, I can't remember the last day I didn't have a glass of wine or two.

Test from iPhone

This is a test post from my iPhone

Starting back up

This blog started as a shared space for 3 siblings who were training for an Avon Breast Cancer walk.  It did fine for a while then fell apart when one sibling (me - Bob) got sick, dropped out and my sisters drifted away from it.

I am not getting back in to walking and my sister Elizabeth is doing the same thing.  I am restarting the blog as a training log and reinforcement tool.  I think my sister will join me. 

Goals:  I don't have  an event in mind right now. I just completed my 2nd 4 mile walk since I started back again.  Not sure what I will do next.  I guess I will try a 6 miler in about a week.  I would like to get to a point where the 4 mile walks are the standard daily trip.  Do 4 miles 2 or 3 times a week, one longer walk and a couple of days of cross training (need to work on how to cross train).

I would like to find an event or group of events to start training for.  It is much easier to be motivated whenthere is a clear goal.  Ultimately I would like to complete the Avon - marathon - half marathon double. 

So any way Walking for Liz is back. and I am going to start posting again as I walk.  Thanks for stopping by

4 mile Friday

Gorgeous day on Friday so I ramped up and did 4 fun filled miles.  I have been walking 2 miles a day prettty consistently since my last 4 mile effort.  This one felt a lot better than the last one which left me pretty sore.

Who - Bob
Route - Over to Beach Rd.  S. to the end of the Village at Nags Head back west across bypass and back through the village streets to the northern end then cut across to Cobia Dr. in Nags Head Cove and down Cobia to home
Length - 4 miles
Time - about 1:20 not bad.  Started around 2pm
Music - A great concert with Guy Clark, John Hiatt, Lyle Lovett and Townes Van Zandt trading songs.
Weather - Sunny, upper 70s w/a light northeast wind.  The last good day before it starts to get gray and rainy for a while
Notes -
