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.

Fitness Minutes: 33,461

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 was so glad to read you enjoyed my blog about Edinburgh and felt my pictures did justice to the city!

Thanks for reading my blog. I am so glad I do get to spend the time with them and that I'm able to do fun things. I have other grandchildren out of state that I don't see much and I wish so much I could spend a lot more time with them too. One of them is 2 now and I've never met him, just seen pics. Oh well, I'll enjoy what I can and hopefully one day soon get to spend time with the others. That's the way the world is now and jobs are poor in our state so I wouldn't want either of my sons to move back here where it would be hard to support their families. But things are a lot different than many years ago when families all lived together in the same general area.

Many thanks for all your kind comments on my blogs lately. I have been overwhelmed with work and travels, so it feels good to find some time for sparking this weekend!

Concerning the Casbah in Algiers, it is easier than Tangiers in the sense that it is built on a steep hill. So you cannot really get lost: if you always walk downhill, you know you'll find your way out. The reason why a Westerner shouldn't go there alone is that Algeria isn't a touristy country at all, and the Casbah is known as dangerous. As I went with a friend of a friend, I didn't feel this at all, people were friendly and warm, apart from a woman in a market who was very upset as she had seen me take a picture and she thought she was on it. I never take a picture of anybody, anywhere in the world, without asking them first, so she shouldn't have been worried. All the people working at the market I took pictures of were very lovely and happy to have their picture taken! Some even said: "Hey, why aren't you taking a picture of me? You took one of my friend!" It was so much fun!

Have a great weekend! emoticon emoticon
