Keep on keepin' on.
Ok, I went back to the gym today, which is the 2nd time in 5 days...not great, but not bad either.
I am having a hard time with the mental part. I used to EASILY do the cycle for an hour. I was on it for about 7 minutes before I couldn't do... Read more
Back at the gym
So today I FINALLY made it to the gym.
I did finish my workout, but I started all the way back at week one. It was challenging, but not as challenging as when I first started. I recovered pretty quickly.
I weighed myself, and I am ho... Read more
Not a setback, a slowdown.
So I was really concerned a few weeks ago about my workouts suddenly backsliding. I couldn't breathe, my legs were cramping way too easily. I was getting scared. Suddenly, the night after my last terrible workout, BAM! My nose started running an... Read more

I hadn't been to gym for about a week. I don't like it. It's partly because we have been really busy getting ready for back to school/work, but partly because I haven't made it en... Read more

Bad News/Good News
The bad news is I still can't run. I tried, with my compression sleeve, and it felt better, but I still couldn't get to my normal pace, and even then I couldn't do the same distance. I did the cycle, and that was much better. I was able to do 45... Read more
Ok, so I decided not to do any workout today. I didn't want to make the shins worse, although they didn't hurt much after about 9am.
I got some compression sleeves, which are pretty cool. I almost immediately felt better. A lot less tightne... Read more
So I went to the gym this morning, knowing it would be my only opportunity today. I was determined to do that damn 2.2, since I couldn't do it yesterday. I wore the right shoes, and even did some warm up before my warm up so that I would be ok. ... Read more
Time for shoe shopping.
I have a pair of running shoes. I have used them for running twice. Usually I run in my crosstrainers. The second time that I used these running shoes was tonight, and it, like the last time, ended badly. I was supposed to run 2.2 miles and I on... Read more
