Great runs/walk ladies :)

I have a 1/2 marathon next weekend, a color race w/ the kids in October and a 10k in November.

There is 1 more 1/2 marathon in November. I can do this run to finish out the "run against diabetes" series yet I am not sure I will do another 1/2 marathon...

I WISH you all the best on your runs!!!

I can simplify my life and lighten my burdens by deciding realistically what I want to do and what I have time to do. (~_^)

I had 2 walking events this month. I'm going to do a local 5k next month. My goal is to keep moving and challenging myself.

Progress may be slow, but it happens!

I plan to do 3 5K's and 1 10K (Black Girls Run-Charlotte September 8). I plan to workout at least 3 times a week and do my best to eat better and lose some pounds along the way. I have a long hard road ahead, but I am determined to finish the race.

My favorite motto is: It can be done, I will do it, and prayerfully I will get through it!

As I'm healing from my injuries I'm going to re-incorporate strength training 3-4 days a week. I've been only doing a variety of cardio on a daily basics. I've decided to start a Bucket List for next year and a half marathon will be on my list to complete.

Progress may be slow, but it happens!

Right now, my focus is my training for my half marathon in November. I currently doing along with my runs T25 as well as JNL Fusion for strength training. I will probably do Insanity again later on this year: November & December.

You are gonna love INSANITY!! I bought it and started it right away; when I did the fitness test, I had sweat dripping from my hair and everything. OMGosh! I was so stoked and felt so strong...in just 2 weeks I could visibly see how much stronger I was than the first day. Now, my goddaughter has my set (because I'm too lazy right now to be INSANE) and she's lovin' it!

My plan is to get my running more consistent over the next three months and then add my HipHopAbs dance jam back into the mix. I can't really hold the tilt-n-tuck position like I should, but I enjoy the dance moves I think I'm doing! emoticon

I just brought the Firm Express and the Insanity DVDs. I'll be working them in along with my walking, swimming and martial arts. I do better when I have a lot of variety and I am challenged. emoticon
