First good week down.

This has been the first really good week I've had in awhile. It wasn't perfect, not by a long shot, but it was better than most have been recently.

Thursday night I went to WW and while I like that leader I hate that meeting. I can't wait till the marathon is over and I can go back to MY meeting on Saturday mornings.

Yesterday was an off day. I didn't feel like getting up so I didn't!!!

This morning was marathon training. We met at 6:30 a.m. at the Pali Lookout. This is a point that overlooks the windward side of Oahu. It's also the site of a famous battle for the island where Kamehameha the Great kicked the pants off the local warriors. Anyway, even in the hottest part of summer it is always windy and cold up there. So here we are, in November and it's windy and cold and rainy. We headed off down the moutain into Nuuanu along a windy 2-lane road. It was 3.5 miles downhill in the rain and I'm sure where you can see where this is going. Yup!! 3.5 miles back uphill. One hill was 2.5 miles long - Oh My God!!!!! It was brutal. Then we had to run along the Pali Highway with cars speeding by at 60 mph and there hardly any shoulder and it's raining. Okay, you get the idea. It really was a pretty good run as far as I was concerned though. No intestinal or stomach problems and I really felt great when I was done; just wet and cold!! So a good morning training.

That's all I have to say. Nothing much this afternoon just hanging around the house. Oh yeah, it's beautiful here!!! Has been all day!! Oh well..... Life in Hawaii.....

Change my thinking

 I have always said that I'm someone who likes routine. I like knowing what I'm doing when. I like knowing that things will get done...
