First 5K in Years

Saturday, September 21, 2013

Ran my first 5K in 12 years today. I gave it up when my ankles started aching most of the time. I decided to try it without the 34 pounds I've lost thanks to SP. Finished in 27:19 - second in my age group!! emoticon Hopefully, I won't get up with aching ankles.

Signed up for my next race to be run on October 12th. emoticon emoticon

    I've been doing good getting over 10k lately. Gonna try to get it up over 15 and 20k, but do some of it with relaxing kind of walking. Been reading that too much is not good too. Going to the doc today to see what she says. I walk a lot for depression, so I have to find a good balance here. I am so thankful for all the support and inspiration here. You got me going! When I saw you doing close to, or over 20k steps daily when I was only doing like 3k a day I thought - if she can do that, I can at least get to 10k.

I also have a new pair of tennis shoes I bought at a store specializing in running shoes. I am doing some more of that now too. Doing it slowly so I don't invite injury. It was an awesome feeling when I got around the high school track the first time.

And it all started with you...

Long Day

Saturday, June 08, 2013

It started before 4 AM. Not the plan, but woke up and couldn't get back to sleep so I just got up an hour earlier and did my morning workout. Watched super regionals of the College World Series - Unfortunately, South Carolina got beat, so they will have to win 2 straight to make it back to the world series this year. emoticon Indiana did upset Florida State, so that was good. emoticon

Hopefully, I'll sleep through to 5 in the morning. We'll see. I usually don't have any trouble sleeping, so I'm sure I will. We'll see how I feel when the alarm goes off. emoticon

I got lots of exercise in walking and swimming, abs video (it's a real kicker). Also had a very good day of healthful eating. Hope everyone else had a fantastic day.

A new week

Monday, June 03, 2013

Is off to a good start. Had a relaxing weekend. Stayed within my calorie range but splurged a bit. It's nice to be able to accomplish both. Today started off very foggy, but turned in to a beautiful day. Hope you had a good day, too.
