Today was the day I had been looking forward to for weeks. I had been training and I thought I was ready but I didn’t count on one thing, a very small detail. We were starting at 6 so I had to get up between 5 and 5:15 am. I was still half asleep as … Continue reading Finished the virtual 5CAP!
After resting yesterday, I want back to trying to complete the three miles today. Today I tried something new; I have been trying something different almost everyday. I decided I wanted to do something different for each mile today, so three different exercises. First I walked/ran on the treadmill. Here I did one mile in … Continue reading Almost three miles
I did it, I walked for three miles in less than an hour! Well, it was 56 minutes and 44 seconds and that’s less than 60 minutes even if just 3 minutes and 56 seconds less. Today I also walked at home but I didn’t use the treadmill, I did walking videos on YouTube. Each … Continue reading Three miles in less than an hour
Today I decided to start getting ready for the 5k I signed up for last week. This means walking for a lot longer than just thirty minutes which is what I usually do. It took me 113 minutes to walk 3.33 miles on the treadmill. That’s too much; last time I did a 5k I … Continue reading Getting ready for the 5k
I thought our Sunday walk would not be that long today because we walked with Indy and Sandy yesterday and it looked like it was going to rain today. We first did the Paseo de la Princesa and El Morro walk, which seemed shorter today. Maybe it was because we had already done it, maybe … Continue reading A day in San Juan
I just finished walking and running for an hour on my treadmill. Well, it was more like walking for 57 minutes and running for three, but whatever, I walked for an hour. As I walked for the last few minutes, even though I was tired of walking, I was happy. I thought there must be … Continue reading So that’s why I’m happy
This morning when my alarm went off at 7:30, I didn't turn it off and went back to sleep, I woke up, got out of bed and began my day. Waking up half an hour earlier gave me time to eat something, take a shower, get dressed and do my makeup without rushing . So … Continue reading I fell but I got up
Remember that treadmill I mentioned not that long ago that we wanted? Well, my mom and I found it yesterday. We walked into Sam's Club and there it was waiting for us; it was exactly what we wanted, a good price, small and foldable and a well known brand. I even looked it up on … Continue reading We got the treadmill!
I started doing some very serious, in depth research on a very important topic that may change the way my parents and I live our lives. I am very excited to embark on this journey so I decided to jump right in and learn as much as a could about treadmills. We have decided we … Continue reading Getting a treadmill
Yesterday was another historic day for Puerto Rico. We still haven't gotten the governor to resign but Puerto Ricans have come together like never before, to get him out of here. There have been protests for about 10 days straight, since the nasty chat conversation was first leaked. These protests have not just been held … Continue reading A new Puerto Rico
Maybe you have seen this in the news or social media but we, the people of Puerto Rico, have had enough of this. 889 pages of a personal chat between the governor and his team, were leaked to the press. They talk about things which the governor described as "stress relief" but the rest of … Continue reading Ricky Renuncia (Ricky Resign)
I did it, six years ago I learned how to walk again. If you ask me today how I did it I can only say I did it with a lot of hard work and a even more patience. It takes a lot of persistence, desire to move forward and even more faith in yourself. … Continue reading You can get back up again
After over a month the boxes my aunts sent my parents to help life after Hurricane Maria finally arrived. My mom was so happy with all the food, batteries, flashlights and solar chargers for cellphones and computers. Mail was already being delivered but when they still hadn’t received any packages I thought they had been … Continue reading One step at a time
It has recently become a little difficult walking my dogs because, as I explained in the post Stronger harnesses on my new blog, Indy and Sandy's leaches broke again and now we are using a collar/chocker. This is a regular collar but the leach ties to a chocker like net that, when pulled, acts like … Continue reading Dealing with sensory hypersensitivity
One of our routes while walking our dogs include crossing an avenue. We cross it on a curve where it's clearly marked for crossing and where we can see if cars are coming. I always take my time making sure there are no cars coming or that a car has stopped to let us cross. … Continue reading Facing my fears
