3 weeks to a 30 minute running habit

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

emoticon to emoticon

I am starting a walk/running habit so for the next 3 weeks I will do this and not give up!! I have been toying with this so I am finally going to do. I got my new shoes a few ago and now just need to go fet a good sports bra to hold the sistas in place.

I got my first email and here i go! So i have printed my copy for day and will give it a go. Will do my best to blog about it.

Today's run I start with a 5 minute warm-up walk. Run 1/1 x 10. (Run 1 minute, walk 1 minute, ten times, for a total of 20 minutes.) Then I finish up with a 5-10 minute cool-down walk.

I'm going to use this time to get my daily frustrations out and me time. I am worth it!! I am worth it. I want to be able to run a race eventually. Will start out with a small and graduate as a go on.

    Good on you! Have you heard about the couch to 5k program? It's a running program that even has podcasts so that you know when to start running and start walking.
Keep up the great work!

    Good for you. I read all the time on SP about people running 5k's, half marathons and full marathons. I'm jealous! My heart says "I want to run a 5k" and ankles say "are you kidding me?". I'll check back to see how you are doing. Good luck

5K Race for Cure Completed

Monday, September 20, 2010

I completed the 5k Race for the Cure in 1.35 hours. That is a major accomplishment for me coming off a torn ankle tendon. Although the flu bug hit my home this past week i thought i would miss but on the way home from the walk it hit me this nasty headache and then neaues feeling hit me. I dropped myh girlfriend home and had to stop at the Jiffy Lube on the way home where i lost my banana and water... i went home and slept for 5 hours and continue that nasty cycle luckily had the meds in the house from when the husband had it took it and today i feel better just feel week and headache galore have managed to keep broth down and gatorade.

    Oh, man. That really stinks being sick. Hopefully the worst is over & you are on the mend.
And how cool to be in a race! I've not done one yet, but I can't wait. You sound like a soldier - not only being getting it done just moments from getting sick but to have done it on a bum ankle.

    Congratulations on the race! Bad luck on the flu. I hope you feel better soon, and that you had your flu shot for this year. If not, I hope the chicken soup cure works for you. emoticon emoticon

    WooHoo yourself. When we were living where we parked it I always liked to find a farmer's market and go wild. Around here they have mostly stuff other than produce, and we have to drive 15 miles out to Oldsmar Flea Market to find people selling local produce, and that only on certain days. Congratulations.

    Go for it. Eight pounds in one month is a lot of real weight loss, but I recall dropping 11 pounds in two days when I was really irked with my neurologist. I never gained it back, but I didn't keep losing that fast. If you wind up with four pounds it is still a victory. Good luck.
