I finally made it to Whole Foods and finished C25k but not simultaneously.

Saturday, November 20, 2010      10 comments

I finished the 9th week of C25k...actually ran 3.4 miles in 35 minutes and then walked a little on the treadmill afterward. I made sure to roll my calves before and after. I think that did the trick. I had to pick up some samples from a study ... Read more

Boy am I happy it's Friday!

Friday, November 19, 2010      8 comments

It feels like it's been such a long week. I am so glad Friday has come. I tried out Jackie Warner's Xtreme Timesaver Training DVD this morning. I used mostly 5lb weights and that was a tough workout. I didn't think I was going to get through s... Read more

3 Mile Run and Some Oat Bran Muffins

Thursday, November 18, 2010      4 comments

My ankle and calves felt so great that I ran today. I went 3 miles. My calves were a little sore while running but not much. I'm not sure if that's the new shoes or a little residual muscle tightness. It definitely put me in a good mood for wo... Read more

TurboJam Cardio Party

Wednesday, November 17, 2010      11 comments

I was feeling good this morning but figured I've give my ankle and calves another day to rest up before running, so I did TurboJam. It's official. I'm uncoordinated. I did have fun, though. And I did something funny and now my ankle is a little ... Read more

Wow, it was weird to not exercise today

Tuesday, November 16, 2010      10 comments

I ended up putting a hot water bottle under my calves last night when I got into bed (but once it cooled off, I dumped it out). I don't know if it was that or the rolling, but my calves and ankle felt pretty good today. I did the foam roller whe... Read more

Sore Calves

Monday, November 15, 2010      4 comments

My ankle was feeling pretty good this morning when I did my weight lifting (Jari Love Ripped & Chiseled). I didn't do any flys or chest presses because I think I pulled a muscle in my chest and it hurts to do those. I rolled my calves on the foa... Read more

The new shoes are nice

Sunday, November 14, 2010      5 comments

I tried out my new shoes this morning. With the insoles they came with not the fancy custom ones because you're supposed to start with those slowly and not actually run in them right away. My ankle felt good. As far as I could tell there was no ... Read more

New Shoe Saturday

Saturday, November 13, 2010      6 comments

My ankle is doing very well today. I get an occasional twinge but not always when I'm walking. Sometimes it happens if I'm just sitting doing nothing. I think the nerve is just being weird. We went to RoadRunner Sports today and I did the Shoe... Read more

I really am taking a day off of exercise today

Friday, November 12, 2010      10 comments

My ankle is feeling better today but still a little sore. It was fine after I finished running yesterday but it started to feel a little sore later in the day. My back is feeling a little achy, too. I think I over did it on Wednesday and that pr... Read more

I finished Week 8 of C25K

Thursday, November 11, 2010      4 comments

I did run this morning in my new shoes because they didn't hurt my ankle on Sunday when I ran 30 minutes. I had used my old shoes on Tuesday for the 33 minute 3 mile run. Well, my ankle was a little sore this morning anyway but was definitely mo... Read more

I was going to take the day off of exercise

Wednesday, November 10, 2010      2 comments

When I got up this morning, I was still sore from my weight workout on Monday. Upper body, anyway. My arms especially. So I thought, I'll just sleep in and take the day off of exercise. At work, I'm participating in a fitness challenge with a ... Read more

3 Mile Tuesday

Tuesday, November 09, 2010      5 comments

I ran 3 miles this morning in 33 minutes + warm up and cool down. It felt great. Except for my left achilles tendon which wasn't too happy at the beginning of the run. I ended up lowering the incline from 2% to 1.5% and that helped a little. I t... Read more

I don't know why the extra hour made me so tired today

Yesterday evening I baked some cookies for my husband to take to his friend's house on Tuesday. They are ranger cookies. They have oatmeal, coconut and I put dried pineapple in for tropical flavor but recipe calls for raisins. Read more

Rainy Sunday

Sunday, November 07, 2010      7 comments

I got lots of sleep last night which is good for a change. I only woke up twice to find the cat kneading me and then sleeping on my chest. I was supposed to start week 8 of C25K today but since I had already run 28 minutes on Thursday, I thoug... Read more

Chinese Buffet for lunch and Taco Bell for dinner

Saturday, November 06, 2010      7 comments

I did try out my new running shoes this morning on the incline trainer. I hiked for 35 minutes. Very comfy. They should do nicely for running tomorrow. Then I did the yoga meltdown level 1. This yoga on Saturday is turning out well. Had a litt... Read more
