Wog This Way

Wogging My Way To a Healthier Me

Trying to Taper My Urge to Wog

I am one week out to my back to back half marathons. At the same time I am suppose to be starting my healing of this adrenal fatigue and thyroid condition.

Rule #1 = Take it Easy.

That being said, I only went to personal training once this week. I took Monday & Friday as rest days, and I did water relaxing water aerobics. For me, this has been taking it easy.

I have always been horrible at tapering pre-half marathon. I’m like oh well I’ll only do 4-6 miles every night and do personal training twice this week, that’s tapering. This has kind of forced me to relax before the race days. I know I am conditioned to do and I will do it, the problem is I wanna move!

I will continue to respect that taper . Drink water and have as many zen moments so my adrenals, cortisol, hormones, thyroid, etc can all get harmonious together.

Do you believe in tapering prior to a race?

My Heart is with Boston

I get really excited for the Boston Marathon, I love to follow the leader board, tracking Kara and Shalane today. I logged in as soon as I got to work this morning, looking at paces following coverage. Does it blow anyone else’s mind how fast these people run? I mean consistent 10mph for 2:30!!! So impressive!

My husband and I have some friends who are there running, so I check in on them also.

Then my husband texts me “There has been an explosion in Boston”

I Google it, my heart hurts. Not only do these runners train, qualify, and put there hearts and soles/souls into this race, but so does the city of Boston. Why would you so senselessly hurt all of these people?
Honestly, I can’t stop reading, I don’t know what will change, it just seems to keep getting worse and more gruesome.  People are already predicting how this will change racing for the future. Right now, I just want peace, love, and comfort to be with everyone who is in Boston. Their loved ones who are elsewhere wondering who they are, bring them peace.

Hug someone you love and remember something you love about Boston tonight!

First Post on Wog This Way!

Hello Out There

My name is Kimbery, and I am another person traversing the Candyland board of weight loss and fitness. It’s been life changing for me, and I’d love to share what I’ve learned, and continue to learn on the way.

To explain the title of this site, it’s a term I use for my mash up of walking and jogging. While I dream of running fast like Kara Goucher, it hasn’t happened yet. That’s okay with me I wog along, happy to be moving. Although occasionally I do sprint for the finish line of a half marathon, it’s my Olympic moment in my mind.

Wogging

Let me know are you a walker, runner, or wogger?
