Running is SO Mental!
So, it is now dark when I need to get up and run and I'm struggling with what to do. I enjoy running in the neighborhood and get to sleep in a little later since I don't have to drive anywhere, but I feel safer running at our park where there ar... Read more
Hi, everyone. Sorry I've been MIA the past few days. We were at the lake house this weekend and we don't have internet service! I'll be trying to catch up with everyone, but I might just jump in tomorrow as this is the last week before school st... Read more
Today's Run was HARD!!!
Completed W8D1 today. It was hard and I didn't enjoy it much. It was hot (already 84 degrees by the time I was done at 7 am), humid, I'm sore from an hour with personal trainer yesterday doing legs, and I was trying to run faster. Someone also m... Read more
I have been steady between 151 and 150.5 for the past 3 and a half weeks! Well, today I finally dropped... and hit 149!!! Yeah!! Read more
Good Days & Bad Days
I am NOT eating well. For the past approximately 2 weeks, I've either had "good days" or "bad days." If I mess up even a little (I mean, make a bad choice) then I just scratch the day, pretty much eat what I want, and stop recording everything! ... Read more
40 Minute Run!
Today I finished C25K W7D3. I'm on to week 8!
W7D3 is a 25 minute run. I started off thinking I couldn't possibly go for 25 minutes. We were at the lake house and it was HOT. I started about an hour after I usually run. I'd eaten really poo... Read more
Sprints on a Treadmill
My daughter and I went to the gym today where we did a machine that can act like an elliptical or a stair climber (do you know what it's called? I don't!), treadmills, and recumbant bikes.
The biggest part of our workout was on the treadmi... Read more
C25K W7D1... redo :-)
Well, I redid W7D1 today as yesterday's run was such a flop. First of all, my hubby had to go to work early so I knew I needed to get up early. I set the alarm, but forgot to check it and it didn't go off. So, I didn't have quite as much time as... Read more
C25K W7D1... I guess
Today I attempted to do C25K (couch to 5K) W7D1 (week 7 day 1) which is a 25 minute run. Well, I did pitifully! And, that was strange because I've been 'killing' the times the past 4 or 5 runs... I've been going more than is required each day. F... Read more
I just went to "reports" and thought I'd record this data and try to post it every month.
June 2010 - 1293 minutes (21.6 hours) - WOW!
July 2010 - 1628 minutes (27.1 hours) - WOW!!!
June 2010 - ... Read more
July Review & August Goals
Here were my July goals and how I did:
1. Track my food EVERY day. - I don't have internet at the lake house and so I didn't track the 5 days we were there. I also didn't track one other day. I don't think I'll set this goal again until we ha... Read more
C25K W6D3 & Weekend
Hi, everyone. Well, first of all, I picked my daughter up from camp on Saturday morning. Yes, I cried when I saw her! She looked great and happy and I hadn't talked to her since the Sunday before! And, she's an only child and I homeschool her, s... Read more
Quick post as we are headed to lake house early this afternoon. AND... I go to pick up our daughter from camp in the morning! No, I haven't heard from her since Sunday, but I have seen photos every day and she looks like she's having a wonderful... Read more
Rough Day Turned Great!
I have ended up having a wonderful day after the rough start. (See post this morning.) I got my physical. I was feeling pretty nauseous by the time it was over - I didn't get to eat until 10:20. But, I'm so glad to have that over with!
Aft... Read more
I'm having kind of a rough morning. For one thing, I have a physical at 9:15 and can't eat until after that. My tummy is growling and it isn't quite 8 am. Ugh!
On a positive note: I'm getting a physical! I'm 40, and I hate to admit it, but ... Read more
