Happy Friday! I can't believe we're at the end of July already. The days are getting shorter.

Today should be a nice run. The temps are cooler and there is no humidity. It should be like this thru the weekend.

Have a nice day!

The heat didn't bother me as much as the humidity. Yesterday was awful. I didn't realize it was that humid until I got down to the lake. There was no breeze. Even my legs were feeling quite heavy. Today should be a bit cooler and the rest of the week looks pretty good. The heat returns next week.

emoticon Mirage!

I had a pretty nice run yesterday morning. Its in the low 60's right now so I'm getting out this morning for another run. I don't remember what it's like to run in cooler temps. Aside from the rain we're suppose to get this week, it should be a much cooler week.

Did my Tri on Saturday and I must have been numb during the run. The heat was on. I played it smart and went into interval pacing. You know it's hot when you have two water stops and one cold towel stop on a 5K!

Temps are much better this morning. It'll warm up for a couple of days and then we should see a cool down. Unfortunately some rain also. Much better for running.

I was able to do a 5 mile run yesterday. Today if the storms stay away, I will get in a shorter run. After today, I'm not sure when I will run again. The lows are only suppose to get in the upper 70's with humidity. Not my kind of running weather.

Have a great day!

I ran about 2 miles yesterday a.m. and walked much more. i didn't expect to walk outside and be hit with the heat and humidity. We were spoiled from the previous days. The rest of the week should gradually get warmer and more humid. If I start complaining about the weather I will just have to hit the stores and see the Fall and Winter stuff out. That should snap me out of it!

4.5 mile run yesterday. Not too bad. It was a beautiful morning. We went down to the lake, but had to go back home because I forgot my Garmin. I would've ran without it, but my son prefers to use it's GPS versus the GPS. Afterwards I mowed my mom's lawn, went to the Farmers Market. Last night after dinner we went back down to the lake and walked around for a couple of hours playing Pokemon Go. I don't care what anyone says, it's a great way to get in more exercise and talk with people. If it wasn't for that, I would've sat on my butt and watched a little TV before I fell asleep.

Today I need to clean my house and maybe go out for a short run. Not sure about the run.

Have a nice Sunday!

We made it out for a run yesterday but we had to cut it short due to stomach issues. It was extremely warm and humid. After our short run we did manage to get some walking in though. Yes, I've been brought into the Pokemon Go world. I'm having fun and adding additional walking to my day. Hopefully we can make up some miles today.

Have a nice day!

It is the last day of June, but my first day for this challenge.

I have not ran in a long time, so I will see how it goes. I loved in when I was a kid, and then just quit. I am not a good runner anymore, but I am going to give it a shot.

Sore today, strong tomorrow!

This weather we've been having can't be more perfect! emoticon

Today is a rest day. emoticon (From running that is) We ran 5 miles again yesterday and it felt really good. My breathing pattern is improving. I've learned to turn down the music or not play it at all which really helps. Never thought I could go without it!

Have a great Wednesday!

Yesterday was perfect! I went for a run and ended up only running a couple of miles due to a funky stomach! The walk was just as nice though. It was cooler, breezy, sunny and just all around nice. It was nice to take in the sights around the lake. It was so pretty!

Today my son and I will get out for a run. It's cooler than yesterday morning but not breezy!

Have a great day!

I put in 4 miles on the treadmill yesterday for that very reason! It's unlikely I'll run outside during this time of year. My goal is to work on speed this summer, and then do some distance running in the fall when it's cooler.

Yesterdays run wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Although it was still warm and humid, we took it easy and got in 4 miles. The rest of this week should be perfect for running!

We've had a couple of great running days! Today, not so much. Very hot with high humidities. Tomorrow should be much better. Right now we are working on distance. We have been doing too many short runs and not enough longer runs.

Good Morning!

I took a couple of days off from running and ran yesterday. I've had a lot of ups and downs lately with my running. Because of all of my aches and pains, my heart hasn't been in it. The humidity doesn't help either. Plus we have been having so much rain that it's been a challenge getting a good routine in. Today again we have storms coming. emoticon

I took 1st place in AG for the 5k I ran yesterday. The conditions were miserable! It was very humid and running in the sun felt horrible. Another hot and humid day before we see a bit of a break.

Yesterday started out very stormy. My DH does the triathlon here and it was delayed for a few hours which pretty much messed up everyone's day. We've been having these morning storms which have been dumping lots of rain on us (which we don't need). After this morning, this week looks to be quite wet as well. Not a great way to start summer.

I have a 5k on Saturday. I guarantee that won't be rained out!

Have a nice Monday!

Yesterday morning was stormy so it turned out to be a rest day. By the time the sun came out, it was already very warm and the humidity had arrived. I'm hoping to get a run in shortly before it warms up too much. Much of the same type of weather the rest of the day.

Today is a non run day. Yesterday was suppose to be an easy run but it turned into a couple of faster miles. The last couple of days were perfect running days! After today, not so much. Temps in the 90's with dew points in the 70's! The runs will be very early in the morning.

Friday night was pizza and beer and Sat. we went to a wedding which involved beer and lots of food! Yesterday awoke to about 4 extra lbs of water weight. I went running with my son which ended up being horrible. It was a really tough run, but I kept my food intake to the lower side of my calorie range and this morning I'm happy to say those extra lbs are gone. Not good. I really need to manage my calories better plus I need to get these extra 10 lbs off! I'm sure I would feel better and I believe I would see better running results!

Have a great Monday!

Another rainy start! I did get a run in yesterday so I'm happy about that. It's been very humid so the runs have been hard. Right now I'm concentrating on my breathing on my runs which means I don't run with music. There is a 5k coming up in less than a month, but I'm not sure if I will do it. I told my kids I might just cheer them on instead. I've done this run the last 4 years so I can take a break. We will see if they convince me to run it or I stand my grounds!

Have a great day!

Getting used to running in the humidity again! Yesterday's run was short and tough. We ran the cemetery which is along the hill so a lot of hill climbing. Today is a rest day and so far a rain day. I don't think the rain is going to last though.

Have a great day!

We completed everything on Friday as planned! Yesterday DH and I went on a 20 mile bike ride. It was perfect weather. Afterwards we went out for ice cream! emoticon

Today I'm going out for a run. We must take advantage of the gorgeous weather we've been having. emoticon

It's finally Friday! emoticon Yesterday was a non running day. Between running and doing outdoor work, my body was telling me not to run. Today I'm getting out around the lake and then we're going to finish up our planting. My goal is to have everything done today and to finally enjoy a weekend!

Have a great day!

We got in a short 3 mile run yesterday morning before it started raining. It was a nice easy run with one of my sons. He's been trying to lose weight and I'm helping him by offering to run with him. He used to be a really good runner a few years ago, but after HS he started packing on the lbs. and didn't exercise. I'm hoping he keeps this up and I will help him as much as possible.

I enjoyed a 5 mile run yesterday in the beautiful weather! The last 3 days have been great! Today there's a chance of rain which we really need. I would like to get a short run in, but we will see how the weather turns out.

Have a great day!

My run didn't happen yesterday thanks to my son. I did get plenty of exercise though by mowing my moms lawn and putting down mulch and then hauling pavers, etc. A beautiful day to be outdoors yesterday. We had our first 90 plus degree day! A bit early but very welcome for a change. Today we're back into the upper 60's. Will try for a run today.

Beautiful day yesterday and a very warm run! I over dressed. This time of the year is strange. It starts out cold, but warms up really fast. Today is going to be another warm day, but quite windy this afternoon. As long as we get sunshine, I will be happy!

The sun came out yesterday afternoon but it was cold and windy. No run. I procrastinated too long. Plus my eating was way off! Today is a new day, the sun is shining and I am planning on a morning run and eating right!

Wet day ahead! I'm hoping to see some sunshine this afternoon. Yesterday ended up being a rest day because it rained. I got a lot of work inside done so it was good! Keeping my fingers crossed for a run some time today.

We were able to get out for a short run yesterday morning. It was going to be an easy run, but my son decided to change that! I did really well keeping up with him so it was a really good run! Today I will run by myself at my pace!

2 days off from running. I just ached. It wasn't suppose to rain this morning so I figured I could get my Sunday run in. Well, it's raining and now the forecast is for rain today! I'm hoping it's not a total wash out and I can get my run in. emoticon

Yesterday was pretty much a wasted day. I didn't accomplish anything.

Today I'm heading down to the lake for my run. It looks like most of the day is going to be dry.

I took my son and his girlfriend out for a run yesterday. His girlfriend mostly walked, but my son was able to run the distance with me. It was a nice easy pace which I probably could've kept going, but it was their first time out so I didn't want to push it. We ended up with 2.27 miles. Since I have the time right now, I'm trying to get them active in hopes they will keep it up. Today my plan is to do some strength training. I'm pretty sore from all of the yard work we did over the weekend so I really need a rest from running. Besides, it's raining today. Good excuse!

Have a great day!

5 mile run on Friday, rest day on Saturday and another nice run (I hope) today. Saturday was a rest day from running, but I got quite a bit of exercise in doing yard work. I'm just hoping I'm not too sore to run later this morning. The weather is so nice. Low 80's and breezy and sunny. My kind of weather!

It's been windy and warm. I went out for a run yesterday morning with my son, but it turned into a walk because his leg was hurting. That was just what I needed! I've been running daily and I needed a non run day. I'm trying to get into running less days but more miles per run. I've been stuck on the same distance for awhile now. I suggested to my son that we go running out by our house on the trail and see if the softer surface helps him. I know it always helped me.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Despite the high winds yesterday, I got in a nice run. It was challenging at times. There were large white caps on the lake. I was determined! The rest of the week should be much better. In fact, by tomorrow, it should be shorts weather again! Can't wait!

Julia-take care!

Ok, we have had enough with this wind already! It would be a different story if it was a warm wind, but it's right cold! Yes, I'm getting used to running in it, but I would love to just get out for an enjoyable run and not one that I have to fight thru the wind!

This coming up week I will be getting back on track with everything! I'm now unemployed and will have plenty of time! It will be nice to be able to prepare meals again. I won't be unemployed for long though as I will need to find another job but the break will be nice.

Have a great weekend!

I'm so sorry to hear about your spill, Julia. I assume you've already seen a specialist on your ACLs. No matter, I would revisit just to insure no further damage has occured. Wishing the best.

I took a hard spill on a concrete floor Monday and I have been babying my bruises all week. I am most worried about my knees as both ACLs are ready to go. The knees have been swollen and Tuesday night I was sure one had gone, but the swelling is going down and full range of motion is coming back. Time to keep chipping away at the weight so I can keep my knees as long as possible!

Started out walking yesterday, but ended up making it a run/walk instead. It was cold and windier than I thought so I wanted to get it done sooner. Glad I did because it started to rain shortly after I got back home. This weather is going to drive me nuts. So much rain/snow in the forecast the rest of the week into next week. emoticon

I'm also learning (slowly) to dress a bit lighter. I can run so much better without the extra clothing (or at least I think I can)

We went out for a run last night which seemed tough. It was windy again! This time it was a cold wind. One day we're wearing t-shirts and capris/shorts and the next day we've got layers, gloves and headbands! Geesh! We can't catch a break here!

We've got a rain/snow mix headed our way sometime today so I'm planning on getting out for a walk this morning while the sun is shining.

Have a great day!

I ran this "lil' race in New Orleans and the Start Temp was about 59. I normally wear a long sleeve tech shirt under my Team Race Singlet. This time I decided to run without as I've been know to get warm early in the race. I learned! It was a great 10K and the most refreshing run in a while. I even ran with a small back pack as I was the mule, carrying our essentials. Great day in my true hometown!

Things didn't go quite as planned yesterday. Got to our race late. Had to park quite a ways away which meant we had to run to the start. A nice warm up, but a little more than I would've liked. I always like to get there, use the porta potty and get warmed up. Plus my mouth was really dry and I could've used some water. The race started out well, until we hit the wind. At times it was horrible. A lot windier than expected. At least it was warm. Finished at a slower time than expected, but felt good about it anyway. Better luck next year!

61 degrees and sunny with a light wind for today's 8k. I think if the race would've been yesterday, I would've definitely backed out! It was so cold with 49 mph wind gusts. Although it will feel windier up there, it will be like every other year I think.

Have a great Sunday!

Thanks MIRAGE! I always get nervous with these runs! I just need to relax and just do my best and enjoy the run!

Forecast so far for Sunday is Sunny, 59 degrees and a South wind. Should be great conditions as long as the wind speed doesn't pick up too much. We're up on the ridge in farm country so it tends to be very windy up there! emoticon

Another rainy and windy day today. We had thunderstorms last night. Much better than a week ago when we had 12 inches of snow. That snow is long gone, but the weather man still likes to throw snow chances in the forecast.

I'm hoping today doesn't turn into a treadmill run day.

Another 5 mile run last night. I surprised myself because I didn't think my legs could handle it. Today is a rest day plus it's raining so I wouldn't get out anyway.

Have a great day! emoticon

Had a great run yesterday. It ended up being 5.67 miles. A couple of hills, wind. Perfect conditions to prepare for Sunday's race.

Have a great day!

Finished my run yesterday just in time before it started raining. Today is a long run. (Hopefully). One week from today is my 8k. I can't say I'm ready, but I will do my best!

Have a great day! emoticon emoticon

After receiving about 10-12 inches of snow the other day, the temps have warmed up and it is just about gone! The one positive thing about March snowfalls! Yesterday was a treadmill run and this weekend will be outdoor runs. A short one today and hopefully a long run tomorrow. We now have some rain in the forecast which will take care of any remaining snow.

Have a great day!

The snow arrived earlier than forecast and it's still going strong. Just wondering what we will wake up to in the morning. (That's if I even get to sleep). It looks like a morning treadmill run on Thursday.

What started as just a little over a 3 mile run last night, ended up being 5 miles. I really surprised myself. Today is definitely a rest day! Or I should say, an upper body workout day! (Shoveling)

The thermometer said 52 last night, but it felt much colder on my run. It felt more like 30's. The breeze was very cold. I was going for just 3, but managed 4 miles. One more run tonight before the storm hits on Wed. My workout on Wed. is probably going to involve a shovel and boots instead of running shoes! Praying the track moves South and that it's just a rain event, but it's March and we're known for that last big snowfall!

Have a great day!

Sienna-that is totally ok. Do you have a running store near you? It's going to be your 1st 5k. I wouldn't get too stressed out about it. If you have to do a run/walk, that's ok. If you have to mostly walk, that's ok. Everything will come together before you know it. I have never dealt with plantar fasciitis so I'm not sure what I can say to help. I'm sure someone here can give you some advice.

Good luck!

I need some positive reinforcement. I finished the 5K Your Way walk/jog challenge, although I took seven weeks rather than five. I had a really hard time with the first day of this challenge. I had to increase my walk times and decrease the run times towards the end. I'm also having trouble with my feet - my plantar fasciitis is acting up. Grr. It's so incredibly frustrating. I signed up for a 5K thinking...I have more than three months to train, I should be okay, some people run a 5K with hardly any training. Now the race is fast approaching in four weeks and I'm worried it was a bad idea to sign up at all. I haven't even been able to start running outside yet because I'm having issues finding good shoes for that and I know it's different outside compared with a treadmill. Sorry for the negativity but I'm feeling defeated...(and the heading says this is the place to vent)

Accept - then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. - Eckhart Tolle
