40:02 Trick or Treat Trot

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Kind of disappointed even though it is a good time for me. Most of my times are around 41 minutes, but I REALLY wanted to get under 40:00. My personal best is 39:52. Maybe next time.

Skip ahead, pity party over. Self, remember when you could just walk 15 minutes at 2.7 mph? Okay then, I am doing great!

New goals for this slider!

Friday, October 05, 2012

I have slid from my 3 or 4 times a week on the treadmill to one or none over the past month. Well, I have set myself new goals I can stick with! Running/walking interval training at least twice a week and a dvd at least once a week. I figure interval training Tuesdays & Thursdays and JM shred on Fridays. Then on other days, 10 minutes of something to keep me motivated!

My plan, not so harsh, but enough to get me going again without quitting.

My 1st Non Stop Mile!:)

Sunday, June 10, 2012

June 7th, I ran at 5.0 mph for 1.25 miles without walking any part of it! What? How'd that happen? I thought I would see how long I could run withou stopping for National Running Day (June 6th). I covered up the time clock on my treadmill and ran. When I could go no longer I ripped the towel from the clock, it said 13:47 minutes and what was this - OVER 1 mile. I pushed myself to get to 1.25 miles. WOOOOOHOOOOOOO!

Better than my birthday!!!


I always thought I was unsuccessful...

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

I have been here since 04/2/09. Doing good, then doing bad. Back and forth, back and forth. I always thought I was unsuccessful and unable to change. How wrong I was. I was just striving for the wrong goals. I first began my weight loss goal because I gained 10 - 15 pounds after I quit smoking. All I wanted was to be thin again. I use to have pics of thin models on my page for "inspiration".

All has changed. I now use pics of strong, healthy models for inspiration. I quit trying to be thin and changed my goals. First new goal was to get rid of the "all or nothing" attitude. I did. Second goal was to eat better. I am. Third goal was to learn to run. I am. I am learning to run slowly, but learning none the less. I am doing intervals and loving it. It makes me feel good and strong. My fastest 5K is 39:52. When I changed my goals, my extra weight just fell off!

How far I have come from all or nothing, eating badly, and barely able to walk 15 minutes at 2.7 mph without getting winded. I now went 55 minutes this morning, doing maximum effort on my last interval. Winded yes, but in a good way! My lungs no longer kill me!

Thank you SP and and SP members for supporting me emoticon

GOAL MET! - My own C25K

Sunday, March 11, 2012

**NEW** Okay I have met the goal I set out. It is the last weeks goal of the original SP walk/jog C25K program. I never thought I would be here!! How did I get here! It took me way longer than the original 5 weeks but I don't care because I am here!! emoticon I will stay on this schedule of walk 2 jog 3 until I figure out what to do next and let my body get use to it1 I AM SO EXCITED!

I will not be defeated! I will conquer the 5K. Right now my fastest time is 41 minutes, 17 seconds. I will get it under 30 minutes someday, at my own rate. I have decided none of the pre-planned programs were not for me because I always ended up quitting. I have been going on a good slow and steady pace and my body is eating it up! Below is my C25K.

Do at least 6 to 7 full intervals (30 min plus) plus warm up and cool down 3 to 5 minutes.
Week 1 - walk 4, jog 1 Done
Week 2 - walk 3, jog 1 Done
Week 3 - walk 3, jog 1.25 Done
Week 4 - walk 3, jog 1.5 Done
Week 5 - walk 3, jog 1.75 Done
Week 6 - walk 4, jog 2 Done
Week 7 - walk 3.75, jog 2.25 Done
Week 8 - walk 4, jog 2.5 Done
Week 9 - walk 4, jog 3 Done
Week 10 - walk 3.75, jog 3.25 Done
Week 11 - walk 3.5, jog 3.5 Done
Week 12 - walk 2, jog 3 Done

Goal Reaching For:
Week ? - walk 2, jog 3
