Family Running

Monday, January 25, 2010

Tonight my son ran a mile. He is 9 and ran almost the whole thing at 5.0 he did so good. He is going to try to start running several days a week :o) It will be cool to run in an event with him someday. Below is the picture from after his workout. It's almost my bedtime so that's all from me for tonight.

Hugz, Amy

    Congratulations! I love watching the kids run the chicken run at turkey trots. Especially because a lot of those same kids then do a 5k with their parents right after.

    That was a great run for him!

I'm trying to talk my 2 oldest into running with me and to eventually do a race too!

Early workout

Sunday, January 24, 2010

This morning I was a bit sore so I ran for a half hour going three miles then walked 1.5 more in another half hour. I was so proud that I did it early. To hubby and I kinda just had a lazy day hanging out. I don't feel too bad about it though because I got my exercise in and didn't go over on my calories. Pumpkin also chilled out with us today. Here is a picture of him on the couch, he doesn't look comfy to me but he sure was purring and layed there for a while. Good night, I think I'm going to go to bed early start the week off with 7 1/2 - 8 hours :o)

Sudden darkness

Sunday, January 24, 2010

This morning I got up and went to pick Coryn up from a friends house and took her to practice. Then I went by Starbucks to get me free perfect oatmeal :o) then went to pick up my collection from the co op (www.bountifulbaskets.org) picture of todays offerings are below.

Then I went home and chopped up veggies for a couple hours and made lunch. Steamed veggies and rice with a veggie burger for me and chicken for Trever :o) It was a nice day without the kids even though we didn't do anything active during the day we ate healthy. We watched a movie then went out to Subway, walmart, etc.

I was going to walk after we got hoe but decided to run instead, about a half a mile the treadmill stopped and it went almost pitch black. The darn power went out. Then after it came back on I didn't let it get me too down and got right back on to finish my 3 miles. I did 2.5 miles in 22 min and 39 sec YEAH!!! Tomorrow I may work more on distance and go slower. Thanks to everyone for the encouragement and especcially to Selina for inspiring me to run and for Barbara I had posted that I might run then decided not to yesterday then after I read your post Barbara I just had to run. :o) I'm well on my way to the half marathon at the end of March!!!!

Hugz to all goodnight

    I'm so excited for you to be doing a half marathon! And girl what a great time on your treadmill! I'm sorry your power went out. Before I read on I thought your treadmill broke and was beginning to feel really bad for you. It's happened to me. Anyway I'm glad your power is back on and there is nothing wrong with the treadmill :)

I love that assortment of veggies and fruit. It looks delicious.

I'm so happy I was able to help motivate you a little bit. Thanks so much for mentioning it. emoticon

Fab Friday

Friday, January 22, 2010

So today I'm home with my son because he got in trouble yesterday. Had a major detour this morning taking my daughter to school due to road closures from the weather. Then went to sprouts, wholefoods, dealer , etc.

Then I cam home and made lunch, I really liked it. The picture is below. I also added it as a recipe. Next time I'm going to add a little more veggies. My son even liked it. :o) I better get back to work. Also later I'm thinking of seeing how far I can run now that I've been inspired. Not sure though I still feel blah and tierd.

Have a great day!!!
