Second run

Friday, July 08, 2011

Just back from run number 2. Had some muscles that didn't quite seem to have recovered from run number 1, but went anyway, and it seemed to be fine. I found I recovered quicker in my walking segments, and I think I was less breathless in my running segments. So far so good. Next run on Monday.


First run

Wednesday, July 06, 2011

I went for a run this morning...if you can call it that. It went pretty well I think. Turns out running makes you sore in all kinds of interesting and surprising places. Next run on Friday. DH is threatening to join me. We'll see.

I've decided to try running. As I sit here I have 2 pairs of running shoes out for delivery to try on. If I don't like either I will head for the local running store. I've already going out and gotten a couple pair of shorts and a couple tops. I am planning on running Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and then walking to work on Tuesdays & Thursdays as usual. If the shoes fit I could try my first run tomorrrow!

I've been staying within about 2 pounds of 155 for a while. This morning the scale says 158.2. Time to be a bit more attentive. I know I've been eating a little more, & the weather & schedule hasn't been good for exercise lately.

Jumping rope

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

So I bought a jump rope, two actually, one with weights and one without. I figured I would take one to work. So I just tried them out while waiting for DH to come home. Wow, I am fairly coordinated, and I felt like a total klutz! (One rope needs to be shortened a bit.) And wow, jumping rope is way harder than I remembered. Ten minutes with a jump rope will have to be something to aspire to for a while. Sheesh!

    Had to laugh at this post AIKIGAL. On a vacation several years ago I saw a European gal in her late 30's and nice shape jump rope outside of a dive shop. She looked great and made it look so easy. I went home immediately and bought one and then found out that it wasn't as easy as it looked. I think I was so disappointed that I never pulled it out again. Like you, I thought I was more coordinated than that.

I hope I'm not a sucker for every cool gym thing that comes round but I've recently invested in a hula hoop. I actually enjoyed it and it has helped my back but the bruising was terrible! It looked like I had been beaten around the hip section for a whole week! I haven't been using it as much since I've been focusing on between 4 and 8 miles of walking and now picking up sculpting....hmmm I'll have to get it out again and just try for short times daily. I really did enjoy it. One of my goals is to learn how to belly dance. It definitely limbers up the back and hips...

I know this is an old post, I'm making up for lost time and making my way back around the SP site, getting familiar with the changes since I was last on.

Have a great day, thinking of you!

  I have been thinking of buying a jump rope too. Thought that would be a good thing to do during commercials on a few of my t.v. programs. Thought I would start out slow. Good luck to you.
