Feelin Good!

Monday, March 23, 2009

I was down and out for about 6 or more weeks due to my previous knee injuries (yes, both knees) rearing their ugly head. I am in the midst of training for the San Diego Rock and Roll marathon. It is hard to train when you can barely walk without pain. I went to the doctor and he said it was an overuse injury and to just stay off of it for awhile. That wasn't acceptable to me but taking it easy and walking instead of running was an acceptable alternative. I cut down on all running and focused on strength training and other forms of cardio. I am happy to report that I was able to run/walk 14 miles this weekend...wait for it......WITHOUT PAIN!!!! WHOOOO HOOO!!!! I am sooo excited and feeling happier than ever because I have been given the gift of running back. I need to take it easy and go slowly but I can run again!!! Celebrate with me!!!

    Hot Damn girl that's awesome You are my inspiration to continue with my goal and do better for myself.
    for many years I've not taken care of my body which in any case I've gotten severely over weight. although I've always been over weight since I was 2 years old.
    off and on I'd work out during my teen year but barely ever did it my adult years.
    I am now 47 years of age, 4 ft. 6 inches tall ... YES I know I am petite and I weigh close to 200 pounds emoticon I am angry at myself for letting myself go.
    My husband has weight problem too but he has it well under control now. He is in the Military and needs to maintain his weight. Your stories and your goals are what keeping me to want to do more I thank you for your encouragement I also want to say BRAVO on all your goals girlie girl Your are awesome emoticon I am glad I read your stories and I've subscribed to this blog to continue to track your wonderful progress and to keep track of when your precious Wedding day will be.

    God Bless you
