Broke 2 miles today!

Monday, February 01, 2010

I started with 1.5 miles on the treadmill, then new goal of 1.75, then did 1.8 and today 2 miles on the elliptical!! I am going for 5K (3.2? miles - something like that) as I am signed up for another 5K. I've never stayed on the elliptical that long. I have a feeling my thighs and glutes may scream a while tomorrow - but, maybe not... This is getting to be fun even if I haven't budged the scale in the right direction. Sigh. But steady as she goes.

    I'm so glad for you! I didn't realize that a 5K was "only" 3+ miles...you can definitely do that by May, isn't that when it is? I've never been a runner, but I can definitely WALK 5 K...I'm going to try to work in a little jogging into my walk when I get back to doing it every day..think they call it interval training...get the heart rate up a little more...hey, the only way is UP from here :)

    Hi SECADUFF22,

    I know what you mean. I haven't started losing any weight yet, but also haven't started weight training. I hope that will help. In the meantime, it's just nice to having fun on the treadmill and the elliptical - just sort of seeing that as playtime rather than just a chore. Soon we'll be able to get outside and walk/run (or run as the case may be). You go, girl!

    I am also training for a 5k, I have started having fun on the treadmill as well. It makes it easier to keep up with it (when the scale doesnt show all your hard work). Keep up the hard work, it will pay off!!! :)
