Successful July. I lost about a pound. Tracked food about 19 days vs only four full days in June.

I am wearing the heart monitor, but not using it to train by. I am training by pace and perceived effort, so I think the methods should be in the ballpark close.

Completed the C25k program, and started the 10k version. In the meantime, I found a free online trainer. I'm liking it as it gives me suggested pace for my runs, where the C25k programs just focus on time or distance (but not both). Completed the two week preconditoning phase in July. Two weeks down, fourteen to go.

I'll bite. My goal would be to get 20 days of PT exercise at home before the end of July.

Three weeks ago, I thought I wanted to run the Firecracker Five Miler on July 4. Then I injured my formerly good foot. My July will be much like Patrick's, about healing and regaining the ability to run. Oh, and maintaining; but I've done that through injury before. I'm not worried about the weight.

A few weeks back my primary goal for July would have been completing my first 10K, but with a very persistent Achilles tendinitis issue to deal with, that is not going to happen - maybe in August if it heals. This month will be all about maintaining and healing. Oh yeah, and getting my deck done!

"I can do all things if I just get off my but's and admit I'm in control of me!" SGM 1:1-5 The only real verse I need.

Never say you didn't have enough time: You have the same amount of time that was given to Helen Keller, Albert Einstein, William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Winston Churchill.

I teach because I love to Learn!

Will be starting week 8 of the SP C25K challenge this month. I also have a podcast for the C25K that goes through week 9. I'll likely start another new runner program later in the month.

I bought a heart monitor so I'll be playing around with it to determine what my max HR is, what my recovery rate range is, and what level I am at during my runnning phase.

Weight goal is 165 or less. Body Fat goal is 18.0% or less. I gained weight last July so I'm challenging myself to not let that happen this year.

Need to track more days on the food tracker. I do fine up till dinnertime (counting that is).

And, as the year is young, want to break 89 on the course.
