c25k - week 9
Ok, I know I already ran the 5K, but I feel that I need to 'complete' the program.
Today it was raining outside, so I ran on the indoor track at the rec center.
If I counted correctly, and if I have the right number of laps in a mile (11 ... Read more
I completed my first 5K today, woohoo!
It was a bit windy, a little cool. But most of that didn't bother me.
I started with a 5 minutes brisk warm up walk with my hubby. I couldn't wait for my chime to tell me it was time to start joggi... Read more
Just some photos I took today. Happy May!

C25K - week 8, day 2
It is beautiful out today for week 8 day 2. Could even say hot. 83 degrees, sun is shining. Yeah, I was sweating buckets when I got done, but I got done! I did have some doubts part way through. This is actually the first time I ever consid... Read more
C25k - week 8
Week 8, day 1 done today, and I feel great.
The weather is 61 degrees and quite cloudy, but not raining.

I chose a point farther down the s... Read more
EASA2 - NSV
Decided to change up my workout this morning, so I did EA Sports Active 2 again. I haven't done EASA2 much recently, although back in December I was using it regularly.
One of the things you can do is a fitness test, which gets your heart ... Read more
C25k - week 7
Wow, I can't believe the achievement.
I am fully past the intervals stage of the program, and now it is about increasing time and distance (and speed I suppose too) as I prepare to actually run a 5k.
Today is a beautiful day. The sun ... Read more

Wow, we rode 41 miles today, and boy are my legs sore and tired.
It was a little windy still, but less than yesterday. And a little chilly, but we can wear layers.
We started in Spring Valley (after we detoured due to a festival to ... Read more
C25K - week 6 day 3 -- bait and switch
I know that when I looked at the schedule it said 22 minutes for this one. Then when the podcast started it informed me it would be 25 minutes. Well OK I said. I chose a comfortable pace and started running. I was able to keep running the wh... Read more
Sometimes, I think it takes longer to 'see' results. After all, we wear the same clothes, and our friends and coworkers and even our selves see us day in and day out. The change day to day might be so tiny. But after some months, if anyone th... Read more
c25k - week 6 day 2
Well, it is Wednesday, so that means another episode of C25K.
We have been having big thunderstorms recently. I really thought this would end up being an inside run. But it looked like maybe it wouldn't rain for 30+ minutes, and I could r... Read more
c25k - week6
Day 1 completed! It felt like a relief to 'ONLY' run 5/8/5 jog segments, with recovery breaks, after the completion of the 20 last week. But it is cool because I know I 'CAN' do 20 at a time, so therefore this was easy. Hmmm.
A nice 63 d... Read more

Today is 45 and breezy and overcast. Some would say it is cool, but I actually found it to be quite comfortable for running.
I was quite apprehensive about th... Read more
