Coffee – Mixed Review June 24, 2007

Posted by Lisa Sabin in Uncategorized.
add a comment

coffee beans I have to admit that I love my morning coffee. I’ll drink coffee in just about any form, latte’s, mocha’s, cappuccino’s, you name it, all nonfat of course!

Occasionally, I clean up my diet and eliminate coffee, sugar, white stuff and wine. I usually drop a few pounds when I do this. I drink more water, when I eliminate the coffee, plus I am saving a few calories from latte’s, which creates a calorie deficit.

As a runner, I am interested in improving my performance. I want to run faster. I also want to maintain a healthy body weight, that will make it easier to run.



What’s Going On With My Obliques? June 20, 2007

I went to my second physical therapy session yesterday.  Even though, I have been diligent about doing my exercises, I know that there is still work to be done.  It feels like the muscles on my left side aren’t firing correctly still.  Maybe the transverse abdominus?  I am not quite sure.


Cycling With CSI – On Demand June 14, 2007

I have a spin bike in the rec room.  Bellevue Place Club replaced their bikes and donated the old ones to staff members.  I bought some clip in pedals and got the bike tuned up.

It’s nice having it there especially now that I am cycling more.  I have the luxury of getting on the bike whenever I want.  I have fallen into a routine of channel surfing and watching CSI reruns on demand.  The shows are about 44 minutes.


Not Quite Ready To Run June 12, 2007

It’s been about 7 weeks since my last run.  I am finding that I am nervous about running again.  My podiatrist said to take it slow and start out with 20 minutes, on a soft surface. 

I’ve just had this feeling that something is not quite right.  I am not normally a cautious person.  I get really excited about training and running.  I’ve been sidelined with injury 3 times over the course of my “running career”.  I’ve been seriously running since 1994.  This year is a big year for me.  I really want to run the Boston Marathon in the Spring of 2008. 

Participating in a repetitive sport can cause imbalances. Some muscles are weaker and others are stronger


Cycling On The Oregon Coast June 9, 2007

This weekend Phil and I escaped for a weekend at The Inn At Spanish Head, in Lincoln City, Oregon.  Phil’s famiily took frequent trips to the Oregon coast, as a kid.   Phil’s mom, Carrie, always wanted to go to The Inn At Spanish Head, which is kind of a swanky hotel, on top of a bluff with amazning views of the ocean.

Originally, we were going to come down here on the motorcyle, but decided to bring our bikes instead.  Our plan was to get in some serious cycling and have a relaxing weekend.  I am really glad we didn’t take the Harley, because it’s been raining like crazy since we’ve been here!

 I am on a new kick. I’ve been buying these presliced sweet potatoes at Trader Joes or Costco. I roast them in the oven with olive oil and sea salt and pepper…..

Total Immersion Swimming-Trying It Out June 2, 2007

1 comment so far

Zappoman has some written a 3 part article about a swimming technique called total immersion. The author of the book, Terry Laughlin breaks down swimming for triathletes. It’s all about getting comfortable in the water. Some of the old habits I have from swimming the “Lisa Sabin” way have resulted in slow swim times, hurt bicep tendon and frustration. I am really first and foremost a runner. The only time I swim is if I am injured or gearing up for a sprint distance triathlon.

Now I find that I am eager to try using the total immersion technique….


Happy Feet! June 1, 2007

My feet are happy! Cortisone is something that should not be abused, but there are times when it’s just what you need to get the healing process started!

Wednesday I went to my podiatrist to get a cortisone shot in my left heel. I must be getting tougher because the shot didn’t hurt that much….
