Race tomorrow

Friday, September 02, 2011

Tomorrow's the Women's Half Marathon, where I will be participating in the 5K. Today, I am volunteering at the Expo. It will be a long day, but it should be fun. It will definitely be inspiring to be around all those healthy, active women!!

    Enjoy the run! I found a lot of energy just being among all the other runners; be sure to keep moving after the race...till you cool down.

Uhm, was I good today or bad?

Thursday, September 01, 2011

I didn't meet my 1000 minutes goal for August. Also, I am so far behind on my marathon-in-10-days goal, there's no chance that's happening. I had a candy bar today and a cookie. I didn't exercise at all.

I cleaned though. I didn't help myself to a donut I found at the office. I ate lots of fruit. Was physically more active on the job than usual. I got a good night's sleep. I even brushed my teeth before going to bed, even though I was so exhausted I could hardly keep my eyes open.

Each day is a new day. Some days I do well at some things and not so well at others. As long as I keep at it, keep my goals in mind, and keep getting up when I fall, I will get there. Starting with going to bed at a reasonable hour tonight. Good night!

    Every day is a new day. Every minute and every choice made is an opportunity to make you better and healthier. Contratulations on your successes and the moderation you showed. Living healthy is not about constant denial of pleasure, it is about balance.

    Sounds just fine! I found it really hard to stick to any sort of plan this summer. I'm hoping September's going to bring it all back for me!

    It sounds like a good day to me. Build off of it and make tomorrow even better.

Consistency is Key

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

I *know* this, but I still need to *learn* it. I was up very late this morning downloading music, so I didn't get much sleep. I am so stinking tired! I am sure the way I have been eating hasn't helped at all, but having a more consistent bedtime is probably a better place to start. I'm headed there in a couple minutes. Not yet 9:00 p.m. and I can barely keep my eyes open.

    I hope you get a good nights sleep and feel refreshed in the morning. It's amazing how much better we do and feel when we are rested. It's so worth going to sleep early.
Sleep well. emoticon emoticon

    lol...I know how you feel. There are so many times I feel like a toddler, wanting to stamp my feet 'cause "I don't wanna go to bed".

Butt I definitely suffer for it the next day too. Go get yourself some zzzzzzzzzzzzzz's.

Recovery

Monday, August 29, 2011

I signed up for the 10-day marathon challenge. I'm not sure I'm going to make it. I've taken the first two days off to rest. Of all my goals, this one is the lowest priority. I'm glad I've learned from SparkPeople to listen to my body and keep going rather than charging full steam ahead until I wear myself out and give up entirely. Slow and steady! emoticon

    2.6 a day for 10 days. That is quite a challenge if you hare not really a runner. Slow and steady is right.

21 minutes

Sunday, August 28, 2011

To earn the 1000 Fitness minutes a month trophy for August, I need to average 21 minutes per day for the rest of the month. Totally doable.

Other goals/challenges I have:
*Starting today, walk a virtual marathon over the next 10 days www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes
sageboard_thread.asp?board=4032x6229x4
3749684
. This is a great preparation for my New Year's Resolution to complete 1000 miles in 2012.
*pre-train for 10K training (starts 9/5/11) while preparing for Saturday's 5K
*pre-train for Fight for Air climb training (starts September)
*don't overdo it emoticon

    I am still trying to be committed enough to get to my 1000 exercise minutes a month. I think that's going to be one of my Sept. goals ;). If I actually get up and walk/run three days a week in addition to working out during lunch and working out over the weekend, I should have no problem getting there!!!

I know you can get there this month :)
