Chugging along

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

hi SP

boy last 2 days were miserable. I got that cold that been going around for 2x time!

...did the ab ripper from p90x last night.

eating my 3 meals....

I m not jumping on the scale, measuring my size.....

I don't want to obsess this time.... although I do have 3 weddings now to be at in summer.

the ab ripper was hard, but it was the cold... but I did it.

GOOD THINGS that has HAPPENED since I am back:

1. COOKING For family
I mean real cooking, not of the costco shove into oven pre-processed food.

2. Exercised
better than watching TV and laying in bed all day ;p

Boy I thought more.... but I m less than 1 wk in...

I need....
to buy new running shoes, same marathon one...and it's couple 100 miles over due.

find all my running gadgets bc my DD starts her girls on the run soon.

I need to figure out a good faster c25k program... or a plan

any one know how to train to be a faster runner?

spark on!

    I wanted to become a faster runner too - but i've had a break so it's hard - I'm re-doing c25k starting on Monday, once I can run for 30 minutes again, I can try to get faster but until then I need to just start!

I've heard Hal Higdon is a good one though

    So happy to hear about real cooking! Wonderful! I would love to get my couch potatoes excited about running. Good luck with the shoes!

    Way to go!
Jeff Galloway and Hal Higdon both have great training plans, from beginner to advanced/getting faster. Personally, I prefer Galloway; both can be found on the internet, just google their names.

    Have you tried any of the Train Like a Mother plans? They have two books, and a website (which I personally LOVE) and they have "Finish It" or "Own It" plans for nearly every distance. I've done the "Finish It" AND "Own It" 5K plan, and walked away with a PR. Now I'm using the Half Marathon "Finish It" plan. The site is Good luck!
