I'm going to do a 5k tomorrow, which I will have to do mostly walking fast since I'm still trying to get back to running after my hip issues. It's a laid back 5k during the Whole Enchilada Fiesta in Las Cruces, NM, (2 hours from where I live). I'm excited about it even though I will try to run a little of it but know I will be walking most of it because I need the challenge of a bib and a timer to keep me motivated. It makes me feel like an athlete. My last one, which I only partly ran, was Memorial Day weekend in May. Then it was too hot and I was saving for vacation in July and didn't have money for entry fees, transportation, and motel (there are very few closer than Albuquerque which is 4 1/2 hours from me) and then my hip has been messed up for 2 months. So it seems like forever!

I have had so many positives today. First I am on week five of my seven week 10k training that I downloaded from rookiemarathon.com. Next is that I have cooked for about the past five evenings and I have stayed witin or very close to my daily calorie goals. I have felt wonderful this week!

I was able to run a little last Saturday and again today. I had been sidelined with a hip injury that at times made it difficult to even walk a few steps. I have to ease back into and I feel like a beginner again (not that I was very far along before) but I am excited to be back to running some!

Sorry I missed last week's challenge!

Today was horribly stressful... but then I went to target because I needed new clothes, again...

And I fit into a Size 4!

Their clothes must run a little bigger, since the one pair of 6's I bought at Kohl's just now fits perfectly, but I was thrilled!

While I didn't run much, fast, nor far... this morning was the first morning I was able to run without my lungs hurting since my blood clot. I usually feel like death because I can't breathe, not today.

Hi everyone! This week (9/20 - 9/26), your challenge is to write down one positive thing that happens to you this week. This is the same as last week...since we got NO responses, I thought I'd throw it out there again. Certainly, at least one of us had something positive happen, and I'm certain we will this week as well.

It can be something related to your fitness goals, your nutrition goals, or it can simply just be something good that happened all around.

Whatever it is, share it with us here. It's good to notice the good things once in awhile, as many of us seem to focus on what's NOT going right in our lives. Focusing on just one good thing can make a huge difference in getting us back on track if we feel off in any way.

For me, I woke up this morning for the first time without the sore butt that I normally get after riding my bike (my hubby and I do a 26.8 mile bike ride on Sunday evenings with a group in our area). That's a big deal...I can actually walk normally on a Monday for once. :)

Happy running!
