I Think I Can

I joined Sparkpeople in order to have an easy way to be accountable to myself for achieving my fitness goals. My original specific goal was to finish the Jingle Bell 5k fun run in December, which I did.

Now my goals are to stick with my running, strength training, Pilates and spinning. I want to maintain my weight between 112 and 115 pounds, avoid injury and stay healthy.

My Goals:
My current goal is to improve my 5k time by 10 minutes.

My Program:
When I joined Spark People I had NEVER run before!! I started the Rookie Running Program in September 2011 and I finished it on November 15. WOOHOO!

As part of my training program I walked/ ran the Trick or Treat Virtual 5k Race and I was thrilled that I was able to finish it doing more running than walking.

I finished the 2011 Jingle Bell Run 5k and I actually ran the entire distance. I had never run more than 2 miles without walking before the race so that was a real thrill.

Since the race I have been working on improving my time and my endurance. I do sprint intervals on Monday and Wednesday and long slow distance runs on Saturday.

My current distance PR is 6.2 miles, which I did in a virtual 10k race in October.

My goal is to finish a 5k in under 40 minutes. I am planning to sign up for the Groundhog Jog 5k on February 2d so that will be my first chance to try for that PR in an actual race.

I am amazed all the time at how life goes so differently than we thought it would! I am doing well even if I don't have some of the abilities I had a year ago. I am glad for the way it turned out, even if I could never ever have imagined it!

Thanks for all your comments on my feeds. My power was only off about 7 1/2 hours altogether (we had a brief 10 minutes when power came on then went off again). But on the news I heard there are still about 80,000 without power in the metroplex. Trees that were blown down on power lines have to be cut and removed in so many areas that is has slowed them down a lot in getting it all back on since it's a huge job. Glad you're safe and hope you're doing okay. Have a great day!

I'm still trying o get back to people who responded to my blog! I'm slow and get tired and sometimes have to quit the computer for awhile. And yesterday I had to drive into Dallas to see my niece who was at a training (she's from California) for lunch before she flew out when she got out of class. I'm a rural girl now in a metroplex of about 9 million LOL! Google maps on my phone is my new best friend and most used app on my phone!
Again thanks for all your kind words. I can't give up! I also still look for change when I'm walking ha ha. Hope you have a great day!

Sometimes I do get up very early. It's a habit from before the stroke I can't break LOL! But I like to get my exercise done early anyway before I run out of energy. And there is something about the early morning I love. I don't set any alarm, it just happens.
