Day 32 of not smoking and 42 days until the Zombie Walk

Friday, September 06, 2013

I started a C25K this week. The first day went well and I manged to complete a little over two miles. I'm looking forward to another two miles tonight. It's super, duper hot here though, so I'll have to work to stay hydrated. I also ordered running shoes on line. After my first day I noticed pretty quickly that my ankles, knees and feet hurt. The shoes I was wearing are at least seven years old and are cross trainers. Not a good combo for running. I'm going to wear a different pair I have tonight and hope my new shoes get here quickly.

My son's first 7th grade football game is tonight. I'm so excited for him. He's a lineman and isn't real happy about it, but he's a big kid. He's 12, 5'7" and 170 pounds. He hates that he can't carry the ball in the positions he has but the little guys are just more adept at being quick on their feet. He's better at stopping them. ;)

It's been a pretty good week for me. I got in three workouts and stayed within my calorie range each day.

Oh, I almost forgot a funny story I wanted to share. So...apparently there is a new workout class craze called "Ripped," at least that's what our substitute boot camp instructor at work told us last night. She also said no less than five times how she hopes to still want to work out and be in good shape when she's "our age" and when she's "older." I had to laugh. Everyone in the class is over 30, so to her we are all ready for the grave I guess. I fought the urge to trip her. The class was okay, but I wasn't blown away. If any of you happen to try a "Ripped" class let me know your thoughts.

Have a great weekend all.
