c25k - week 5 - rain cant stop me
Week 5 is interesting because it ramps up at each day.
So today, the first day, it was 3 5 minute runs, interspersed with 3 minute walks. So that one was pretty easy, and it proved to be so. Wednesday will be 2 8 minute runs, with a 5 m... Read more
Recall, that these are my summer goals:
1.) Ride a metric century (62 miles) in a day.
2.) Ride 100 miles in a weekend.
3.) Ride 1000 miles in the season.
The weather has been on and off so far, but we have managed to get in 3 rid... Read more
Easter weekend was wonderful. Saturday we rode our bikes for 31 miles. Then dyed eggs with my friend and her son.
It was a bit disappointing without my parents here (they usually are), but hubby and I had a quiet Easter day and dinner j... Read more
C25K - Week 4
First day completed! This one included 3 and 5 minute runs. I ran in my neighborhood.
5 minutes felt like a long time at a time. But I didn't stop, I pushed through, and completed each segment. I also walked about 4 minutes ... Read more
C25K - Week 3
Apparently Mother Nature has it in for me on Mondays. But I'll not be deterred. Today we had lots of snow. I really considered running outside, but with the sidewalks covered by about 2 inches, and the sides of the road full of s... Read more
C25K - Week 2
Well, it is week 2 day 1, and of course, it is raining again. At least I have Plan B figured out, so I went to the rec center again and did the workout on the indoor track.
Is it possible that week 2 is easier than week 1 was? Or did week... Read more
C25K - W1D1
They say that the first step is the hardest. That is my thought right now, as I have just completed Day 1 of the Couch to 5K program.
Mother Nature tried to derail me. I was thinking I wanted to do all my running outside. It is pouring r... Read more

Summer goals -- biking
Yes, it is almost spring. The snow has turned to rain; the crocuses are trying to push through; sometimes the sun even shines. I can't wait to get outside and do stuff.

Since we were out of town this weekend, we had many restaurant meals and my eating was quite out of control. It was really good and I enjoyed it, but way over my calories.
Last night, I got in a time bind for dinner, and ended up going thr... Read more

As I mentioned, I downloaded one of the Spark People workout songs. Now it was supposed to be for this weekend, but I couldn't wait. After all, I had to see if it transferred correctly, right?
I went to the mall at lun... Read more
Craving / A Reward
I have been wanting Chick-Fil-A for a week or so. I really wanted their breakfast hash browns, and I like their breakfast entrees (Chicken Biscuit or Chicken Burrito).
I gave in this morning, and stopped. Not really a good idea, I know I ... Read more
That little voice ...
I hate that little voice on the wii, going 'That's obese' every time I weigh in. I want to throw the board at the TV when it does that.
Well --- no more!!!
Today, she said (slightly less nastily) 'That's overweight', and then proceede... Read more
