This past week was one of the busiest I have had during the FIT Challenge. When the week started I originally did not think I was going to have time to see my trainer Ken Cutcher or visit Anytime Fitness in Norwalk.  Luckily I was able to get to the gym once and walk/run a couple times during the...

At the urging of a coworker I decided to run the Huron Lighthouse 5K on Saturday.  My friends Wendy and Bill came along with me and at 9 a.m. we hit the course. It was a very windy race, but I am very happy with how my race went.  Wendy and Bill are much better runners than me, but they stuck with...

I had a great past week! The week started well with nice running weather.  I had a great warm-up run near my gym.  After the run, my personal trainer Ken Cutcher and I had a great workout at Anytime Fitness.  We did a lot of lifting and core exercises. Tuesday I was featured in the Norwalk...

What a difference a week makes! After being disappointed April 14 in my attempt to run a sub-30 minute 5K, I took the week off from running to rest my hamstring.  I even went to Fisher-Titus Medical Center to have the Physical Therapy department look at it.  Unfortunately, there was no pain while I...

I didn’t achieve my goal of running a 5K under 31 minutes.  Disappointed - yes.  Surprised - no. We write our columns on Sunday mornings and submit by them by noon. At the time of my writing last week I was confident that I would do it. Then I went out and ran sprints at the Whitney Field track. I...

I spent this past week on Spring Break, and that meant I had extra time to be in the gym! My personal trainer Ken Cutcher  and I worked out a few times during the week, and I attended one of his TRX  classes. I did workouts that included super sets, and got in as much cardiovascular work as I could...

Last Monday I wrote about the week after my birthday being one the best I have had in a long time. I had lost a lot of weight, my exercises went well and I won the FIT Challenge Challenge at Anytime Fitness. This Monday is a bit different. While it was not a bad week, it certainly was a let down...

My busy schedule is making this FIT Challenge more difficult, and past this week was no different. Every night I had something going on, from attending meetings to working on my master's degree. I traveled to Columbus for a conference and had to help sort and pass out Girl Scout cookies. All these...
