Week one results:

Weight 124 - up three pounds from last Sunday. Most likely due to the arrival of Mother Nature. I'm not too worried about it.

Calories - 4/7 days I was within range. Fruit & veggies: 6/7 (the weird thing is, the first day was my only bad day)
Cardio: 180 minutes - short 60
Strength: 3/7 days I did my little routine
Overall feeling: satisfactory

Week two results:

Weight 121.5 back to "normal"
Water : 7/7 days
Calories - 6/7 days I was within range. Fruit & veggies: 7/7
Cardio: 4 hours 36 minutes (GOAL+)
Strength: 2/7 days should have been more but my elbow was not willing.
Overall feeling: very good

  


Happy Canada Day!

Monday, July 02, 2007

I had a fabulous day. I spent the morning with my friends @ the HBC Run for Canada, had someone defend my honour on the race route AND scored a PB for my 10 k. Then I got a congratulatory hug from this guy I've had a crush on since I started running. (he was also the one defending my honour) It was funny. And harmless. But it still made me grin like an idiot. LOL, I feel all high-schoolish.

**Side note: So I'm running along the path and my Garmin beeps for a walk break. This guy, who I see at damn near every race I run, yells at me to walk single file. I was trying to, it's not that easy when you're surrounded by people. A fellow runner told him to take it easy. Incidently, the doofus that yelled at me came in 10 minutes behind me.**

I'm feeling very lucky tonight. I have two wonderful sons who didn't mind me dragging them up Nose Hill for a walk and then screaming "can we go now?!" when the mosquitoes started to eat me alive. I have a man that I love beyond all measure and who, fortunately, loves me right back. Add to that the fact that I have a level of fitness that I never expected to have and VOILA! one happy me!
Life is good.

ps: I got 24 cardio points today and I stayed within my calorie range!

My Half Marathon Clinic

Wednesday, June 20, 2007

So tonight was class 1 of the clinic that I'm instructing with Howard. All in all it wasn't that bad. I got nervous. And anxious. I expected both of those. Luckily, there were some familiar faces in the group that I could talk to so those emotions started to go away.
Our run was good. It was about 4 kms. I had to stop at the 7-11 because my Lean Cuisine betrayed me but all in all, I kept a 6 minute pace. Not too bad.
Tomorrow is just an ordinary Wednesday night run. We're going to do 3 at tempo so hopefully, I'll be able to keep the pace @ 6 again. No, wait, not hopefully.... I will keep a 6 minute per km pace.
