She was really happy w/ my level of enthusiasm and dedication to my goals and can tell that if she showed me something, I would do it, vs other people that only do the workout if she's there to make them!
She is going to come over Monday for our fist session and they are an hour long. I originally thought the prices were high, but then realized it was for an hour vs a half hour, so not too unrealistic. However, 3 times a week for 4 weeks is more than my horses board bill and I pay a pretty steep bill! I've been toying w/ getting another horse too, but in this economy, scary to do, but you can pick a horse up much less than years before.
I have to decide if I am going to have her come two days a week or three. With both of our schedules, I really think two days a week would be best and I'll do the third day myself. Then after the four weeks are done, re-evaluate the deal and see if I want to consult with her say monthly or bi-weekly.
She loved all the reports I was able to give her from SP.
For the lilies... I promise I'll take pic's and put them up. I have two flower beds in front of the house and there is a bunch of Lily of the Valley basically taking over one bed. I have been pulling them up from around other plants the past few days and now have decided I am going to remove them completely and put the lilies there. Should be perfect.
On the side of the house, we already have an existing Lily of the Valley bed there, so I'll still have some. And I'll probably transplant some of them over by the pond. If the bob cat drives over them, they are tough, they'll be back!
Hopefully we are going dancing tonight. Sorta in the air. It's further away than usual and my BF was up at 4 a.m. and our friends we go with will call at 6:30 to let us know if they are going. If they are not, I'm guessing my BF will suggest something else, which is okay.... I'll get my bike tires pumped up!
Have a great day!

Hello all in Sparkland!!!
This morning was a 30 minute run on rolling hills.
Program: 1/2 Marathon, Galloway week 4
Distance 2.61 miles
time 31 minutes
average pace 10.30
course rolling hills
temp 60 degrees
Run was okay. Still a little sore from all the gardening an the 5 mile run from the weekend. Still do not like the lower calorie burn especially when other work outs have to be postponed.
I suppose today is okay though as I am meeting w/ the Personal Trainer to go over a game plan tonight instead of going to Curves. Will let everyone know how that turns out.
Dancing is also slowing down now. No more lessons till fall, so now every other Wed is free...YIPPY.. Think I'll add this a horse day!
Found out my great place for the lilies cannot be as that is how the bob cat gets into the beech. so now I have to find someplace else to plant 10 lilies and FAST!

I did this Sunday and I am still stoked over it!
I mapped it out in the car on Saturday. I had a few ways to go, the flat way w/ a bit of a large hill, but divided up into three large steps.. ends up being just as high as the big kahuna hill!
Avoid the hill but run a bit up hill around BLIND corners.. uh don't like that one!
Run the big kahuna hill and then go right or left for a short distance and back.
I chose the one w/ the three steps.
Program: 1/2 Marathon, Galloway week 3
Distance 5.18 miles
time 66 minutes
average pace 10.30
course flat w/ 3 stepped tiered huge hill
temp 65 degrees
WOW. I admit when I drove it out, I was like I can't do this, this is a huge jump. Normally my mileage increases in 1/3 of a mile, this was more than 3/4 of a mile from my furthest run. It was misty and 99% humidity and I didn't feel good, so I decided to run Sunday vs Saturday.
Sunday shows up to be a gorgeous sunny day, 65 and humidity at 57% and I felt great and had the attitude that
I CAN SO DO THIS.
and I did!! I don't like the work out I designed though. I was playing w/ the runkeeper and ran 1/2 miles, walked 1/4, ran 1/4, walked a 1/4 and then repeated. I'll change the work out for the next long run to be run 5-7 minutes, recover 1 minute and repeat till done.
I did so much gardening this weekend!! 4 hours on Saturday pulling weeds, raking. Then after the run Sunday, I did 2 or more hours weeding and planting flowers. Adding a lily section to the pond area and got 6 peonies! Love peonies!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!

and I like it!
I finally got to stop playing phone tag w/ the PT and we talked today. She had notes on me already and said 'hmm, let me see, oh yes, from Deb (Zumba instructor) she is a little keg of dynamite'
Please hold on while I bask in my infamous glory
okay, I think I'm done, oh wait.. here it comes again...
Admit it, I made you all LOL didn't I?
This running yesterday instead of Friday has me all thrown for a loop... today is a run day but I ran yesterday... augh. I need to DO something... I checked the temps and it was 63 at 1:15 but at 2 is supposed to be 69, so as soon as I am done with this blog, I'll at least get in a power walk.
Then I'll have to gather up my nutritional print outs (thanks SP for providing that!) and my work outs and average calories burned during the week. I'm going to meet the PT for a sit down at Starbucks (gag me) on Tuesday evening.
and (that's drumroll, did you get it? Crazydogladybo did I'm sure) This weekend will be my longest ever run using the Galloway 1/2 plan, will be doing my 5 mile run. Longest to date is 4.16.
Have a fabulous weekend all!!!
