New running program

Friday, July 11, 2014

Just looked into Run Disney – and they Galloway method – which I am planning to start as a new 10K process. I am hoping this will be a good choice, since my new phone does not like the old app I was using.

Anyone tried this already?
What were your feelings?


Down and out

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Whew! Just getting back into it - after some tripping (and not getting to Spark) then my laptop died (still dead, using PC at work), then two and half weeks of pneumonia - I am back. I gained some pounds back (grr) and am hitting the gym again. Thank goodness my clothes still fit anyway.

I have even started working with a health coach (through work) and am keeping myself accountable.

Slow and steady, slow and steady.....

Poll - of sorts

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

I was at the gym last night - getting some weight training in - and was circling, and being circled, by a group - 4 men and a woman - who seemed to be helping/training each other on the machines near me.

Now, I ensure to clean my face and take off my makeup before I go to the gym. I am here to get something done, not to be cute (not that I can help it lol). I feel this is the best for my skin and will keep me from looking like something that was caught in the rain when I am done.

This woman, though, had the thickest, longest false eyelashes on - with hair done up and cute very fitted clothes on - while working out.
Here eyes were smaller, might have been really pretty, but I could not see her eye through the wings that were attached to her face. It looked really weird.

So the poll - Ladies - do you take your make up off before you get your workout on?

  I don't wear much make-up in general, but sometimes I wear a little on my eyes… One time I forgot to take it off before a workout and with all the perspiration it ended up IN my eyes-- ouch! Now I make sure to take it off.

    Ha! There is NO WAY I would wear make up at the gym. I would resemble a racoon when I got done. I go before work so I just roll out of bed and into my work out clothes. My trainer has only seen me sans make up and hair pulled up. :-)

Back in the game

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

I am back in it!

Last Tuesday I was able to mostly run the group run trail with my group at work - I did it twice - for about 4 miles. (Woo!)
Then Thursday I ran my training - on an incline program (that's new)
And this weekend Hubby and I biked to lunch - about 4.5 miles

Tonight I am planning to run with my office group - see what kind of movement I can get going. I am also planning for an early Thrusday run as we will be visiting my MIL and won't have access to the gym.

That should space it out about right and keep me moving!


Healing cont....

Monday, November 18, 2013

So hip is not as bad now - a bit sore, more like a torn muscle I guess.
Ankle is better, perhaps a bit weak, but working without pain.

New pain - both upper thighs - front only - are sore and hurt to use. This is causing problems as I try to walk quickly or run - as my legs complain LOUDLY when I try. I have stretched and found that the most effective stretch is the runner lunge and pigeon pose - both are very challenging and seem to hit the exact spot. I will ease into these to hopefully be back to jogging soon.

    Listen to your body. Don't push to hard and put yourself out of commission for a long time.
