Christmas nails and time to get back on track!!

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

I fell off the wagon at the end of October and am struggling to get back on. I'm ready to go for the running high again. I dont know why when I start seeing results I back off. Thursday is day 1 of the new challenge, and is going to be day 1 of starting back running. Weather looks like it is going to be decent, I dont work that day so no excuses.

I've been working on getting my diet cleaned up. I've been off of soft drinks for over a week with not much want for one. I'm cutting my sweet tea back and have increase my water a lot. I'm adding more fresh fruits and veggies.

I miss the way I felt in October, its time to get that feeling back!!

    I'm sorry that I have been so outta the loop on Spark. I stopped tracking but not working out or trying to eat clean. I love that you were able to get rid of soda. We call it pop up here in Canada and friends and I call it "Devil's Piss" haha... really not enjoyable when you think about it in those terms.

Just an idea but have you tried lifting weights? I have found that 10 mins of weight lifting gives me more satisfaction than an hour of running. Plus, muscles are leaner and burn more calories at rest.

    WOW lovely nails. Glad you are getting back on track. Great getting off the soda and not missing it. Keep taking those small steps and you will have success in your journey.

Color Run Nashville!!

Saturday, October 12, 2013

Tomorrow is the Color Run!! I'm nervous and excited. I think I'm more nervous about so many people being there than I am about the actual 5k.

I've got everything packed that I need to take. My clothes are layed out. I retried everything on again tonight.

My son will be doing this 5k too.

Had to get the nails done!! The blue and pink is not showing up very well in the picture.

    It is a great feeling to do something you have never done before. Thanks for the spark goodie, and encouraging me to enjoy my race. I am grumpy now, burning off the excess energy, but I will surely enjoy every mile, every scene, every step of the way. Please accept my friend request.

    Good luck . The color runs are well organized. I ran the first one in houston and they had 10,000 runners. They usually start in waves. Let one set of people go. Then another. Bring towels or something to put on the car seats for the drive back and maybe a 25 oz bottle of water and a towel for cleaning your hands if you dont like eating with stuff on them.

My first 5k race report!

Saturday, September 28, 2013

My goals for this race was to finish, not be last, and was hoping to finish in under an hour. My best time in training had been 1:12:43, we finished in 58:27! We were not last there was 2 groups behind us when we finished. There were about 40-50 people there. Weather was great 73 degrees. There was a slight hill but nothing major. Really glad I added some more hills into my training the last week.

I'm looking forward to doing more 5ks. I have a color run scheduled for 10/13, another breast cancer walk 10/26. I hoping to add 1 more into Oct.

Here is my son and I after the race

    Congratulations! I'm sure this will be many more in your future.

I agree with SpeedyDog. In fact I saw a T-shirt at my last race that said "I'm faster than all the couch potatoes"

    Congratulations! You were not "last" by a long shot! Neither were the 2 people behind you. You beat everybody that was at home sitting on the couch! Just getting out there is a victory!

Met a goal!!

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

I met one of my goals lastnight to get below a 15 min mile, the last mile I hit a 13:46. I was shocked! I normally look at my phone off and on while I'm walking to check my pace but I didnt lastnight. I just ran when I felt recovered and walked when I felt like I needed to walk. I'm starting to feel more comfortable trying to run.



Sorry its kinda blurry, but after my walk this morning!
