Today I went just under 5 miles in 70 minutes on the treadmill. 40 minutes of it was run-walk-run -- actually 23 minutes of run @ average 6.7 mph and 17 minutes of walk @ 4 mph. The remaining 30 minutes were very slow warm up and cool down. My back is not 100%, but it isn't much of a problem, and I don't feel it when running. Expect to be fine for 13 mile training run on Saturday and should be on schedule for my -- exciting, exciting -- first half marathon on Nov 18th.
Last night I had another challenge to my healthy lifestyle; my laptop computer lost power which threatens my access to SparkPeople. Luckily, hubby is sharing his computer today. And, in what I think is good news, Dell is sending parts to a repair person who will call in 2 or 3 days and schedule an appointment to come to my home and fix it. My computer is only 6 months old. Hope this works. Usually I don't get extended warranties, but in this case maybe I should.
