    Yes, I would say that you might want to hold off and do 3-4 times a week for running. When I was training for my HM last summer, I injured my hip because I overdid it. Plus, the treadmills can be rough on your body.

    As far as figuring out your speed, you could get a pedometer, I suppose. The only problem with this is that you would have to time your run and then figure out how many km/hr you are running. If you run outside, you can try to map the distance of your run. Sparkpeople has fitness maps, but there is also a site called where you can both search for runs and map out your favorite routes. I already checked, and it does map out Europe, yay!

    I totally agree! I think about sparkpeople when I exercise as well! Or when I'm eating! I know that I will blog about my experiences later, and if I eat poorly or slack with my exercise, I still need to be accountable for it, no matter what.

    Thanks for the shout out; I will have to do one for you next time I vblog. I know one of my biggest pitfalls is when I meet my goals and then I stop logging onto SP--it's like I think I don't need it anymore, but in reality, that's when I need it the most. And you're right--we are on SP for others, not just for ourselves!

    Glad to see that things are going well with the training--I hope the fitness maps work!

    p.s. I like your collage in the background :)

    I think that there are some websites that you can map out your route of what you're running outside and can tell you how far that it is. You could also take a stop watch with you and time your miles/kilometers.
