I definitely should not have been walking at a 16% incline yesterday. My back was pretty pissed off at me this morning. Getting in and out of the car while running errands today certainly didn't help matters. We attempted to pick up some frost... Read more

I didn't get a chance to blog yesterday, so here's the recap. As I said on Thursday, I did something to my back when I put my 20 pound weights down. It didn't hurt, but I felt something. I did ice but it has turned into some ouchiness. I did n... Read more

It was a rest day for ChaLEAN, but I started week 5 of C25K. The first interval seemed kind of hard but I was fine after that. May have just been because it was so freaking early. I even added an extra 1.5 minutes at the end of the last interval... Read more
