What a Morning
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!
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
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)
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
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
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! Read more
Goodbye Week 3!
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. Read more
Two Workouts Today
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!
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
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. 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
Week 4's Exercise in Review

C25K walk/run - 3 days (1 day of week 2 and 2 days of week 3. Started 3 minute runs.)
strenght with personal trainer - 4 days (This won't happen again. I was being trained on new equipment at gym. ... Read more
How I Choose My Evening Snack
I have a whole new way of choosing my evening snack - what I used to call dessert. I look at my nutrition counter, and see what I still need for the day!
For example, today I still needed: calories, fat, fiber & calcium. So, I ended up havi... Read more
