More Obstacles...

Sunday, July 18, 2010      4 comments

Well, my husband's schedule this week has thrown me a curve. To get in my workouts, I've been getting up at 6 to swim or run before he leaves at 7 or 7:15. Well, he said he has to leave by 6:30 every day this week - and not getting home until 10... Read more

What a Morning

Sunday, July 18, 2010      7 comments

It's Sunday morning and this is supposed to be my Rest Day, but I missed my run yesterday. So, I woke up at 6:20 to go running. And, even in the midst of things falling apart, I had a good start to my day! It started when I got to the park ... Read more

My dd9 and I went to our first zumba class today. It was wonderful! I miss going to classes and was thrilled that my dd could join me for this one. The Y that we joined last week offers two family zumba classes a week - one on Monday night ... Read more

Disappointing Run, but Today I Swam/Ran/Biked!

Thursday, July 15, 2010      7 comments

I had to run on a treadmill today. I really don't like running on a treadmill and this is the first time I've done it since starting C25K. Anyway, I forgot my iPod and the PodCast was supposed to help me find my pace. I started walking. Fir... Read more

Books to Tri

Wednesday, July 14, 2010      4 comments

I've been reading books about triathlons the past few weeks, and thought I'd share a little about them. The first one I read was "Your First Triathlon" by Joe Friel. This is a great beginner's book that I'll be reading again as my tri gets ... Read more

Why You Might Want a HRM (heart rate monitor)

Wednesday, July 14, 2010      10 comments

I got my HRM yesterday and got to use it for the first time today. First of all, I had a hard time getting it to work, but I finally placed it up higher (really under the base of my sports bra) and it worked! And, boy was I in for some surprises... Read more

Weigh In, Plans, and Breathing While Swimming

Tuesday, July 13, 2010      3 comments

First of all, I had my weekly weigh in this morning. I'm glad the scale is still moving, but I only lost 1/2 pound this week. (Total lost: 6.5 pounds in 6 weeks.) Kind of disappointing, but hopefully next week will be more. As far as workou... Read more

The Weekend

I've had a pretty good weekend. It started with my early morning run on Saturday when I surprised myself by running two 4 minute runs... without passing out! emoticon... <a href=Read more

Goodbye Week 3!

Saturday, July 10, 2010      4 comments

I am slowly working my way through C25K as I work on my goal to run a 5K. I honestly don't know how so many people do it on schedule, but I know I need to take it at my own pace. I spent 5 weeks on weeks 1, 2, and 3. Today was my 5th day a... Read more

Reviving the Dream

I just joined a new SP triathlon group and wrote up a long intro and thought I'd kind of revise it for a blog post. emoticonRead more

Two Workouts Today

Thursday, July 08, 2010      5 comments

I had 2 long workouts today. The first was at the Y with my daughter for the first time. I was amazed that she kept up with me as I did C25K W3D4! I walked & ran about 1.5 miles. (I need to figure out how to keep track of how many laps I've... Read more

My Daughter Can, Too!

Wednesday, July 07, 2010      4 comments

It is supposed to rain tomorrow. A lot. So, I was fretting about how to get in my run. I decided I really needed to go ahead and join a gym. I've been doing a lot of research on gym memberships. I've belonged to 4 different ones over the p... Read more

Blog Questions

Tuesday, July 06, 2010      5 comments

Ok, I have a couple of questions... 1. I like my "bike" photo background (though I wish the photos were smaller), but how and where do you all get those cute backgrounds? Are there some to choose from? Or are you using clipart? 2. How ... Read more

3 Minutes

Monday, July 05, 2010      4 comments

3 minutes. Right now, that seems like such a long time to run! But, just a month ago ONE minute seemed like a long time to run. In fact, on the day I started C25K, I truly didn't think I COULD run 1 minute. But, I did! And now 1 minute is fairly... Read more
