week 1, day 3 of my 5K training

Sunday, February 15, 2009

I was debating if I should do a whole 5K's on the emoticon today or do 2 miles and see how I do compare to my 1st time ever walking/jogging this past Friday.
It's a 25 min drive to the gym, enough time to figure out what to do - so by the time we got there, I had decided to do another 2 miles and compare my time.
day 1, 02-13-09: my time for 2 miles - 29.30 minutes
day 3, 02-15-09: my time for 2 miles - 27.57 minutes emoticon I DID IT!!! I feel emoticon about my accomplishment.
After my walk/jog I rode the virtual bike for about 20 min for 4.5 miles.
Our DD was shooting emoticon while I was working out and the plan was to go emoticon afterwards, BUT......we didn't, the pool was way too packed today, lots of families with little children, so we just went home.
Took some ME time once we got home, took a nice bubble bath and read my EAT CLEAN DIET WORKOUT book and now I'm fixing to put a new strength workout routine for myself together.
And always remember.........IF I CAN DO IT - SO CAN YOU!!!! emoticon

    emoticon Just remember, with running if you do too much too soon, you could get injured.

    Oh to be young again. What you do is so inspiring. Your determination is so infectious and admirable. Such an example to set for all your childdren. They will certainly be great assets to our country to carry on the future. Keep it up young lady and it will certainly pay off in many big ways when you get to be my age. Build those good memories and habits while you are young. emoticon for all that you add to the lives that you touch.

    My son who is twenty -three has been running cross country since high school. But he has loved to run since he was a baby. He says it is a real stress buster and really keeps him in shape. Funny how I instill in both my children how to eat healthy and do right but I can't learn it myself. I am sure glad that they did as I said and not as I did. Good job on your training and showing others what to do.
