I Didn't Bake Anything Today!

It was a nice first day of vacation. I got up around 4:30 because the cat was walking on my face. I decided to workout after my husband left for work so I had breakfast first. It was kind of weird waiting. Anyway, since it's Monday I did some st... Read more

Since it is Sunday, I did some yoga. I know I was going to do yoga on Saturdays but since my running days got changed, so did yoga. I tried out Bob Harper's Yoga for the Warrior. I did both of the workouts for a total of 75 minutes...that's a lo... Read more
Quite a Busy Saturday

I didn't get to bed until almost midnight and was up at 4:30 because I'm crazy, I guess. I decided to do my GW28K W2D2 run with my neutral running shoes to see if the extra cushioning would help my knees feel a little better since they've been... Read more
Last Work Friday of the Year
Friday, December 17, 2010      6 comments

I decided to let Jackie Warner work me out this morning...for a change I did the Power Circuit Training. Not nearly as sweat inducing as the Xtreme Timesaver but it is a good workout. I'll probably be sore tomorrow morning. It was a busy day a... Read more
The Last of the Baking for this Week
Thursday, December 16, 2010      8 comments

I did another run in my new shoes this morning. GW28k week 2 day 1 (run 8, walk 1 x4). My cranky ankle was bothering me a little and I felt like I had a little shin splints thing going on the other leg. However, my knees felt fine and have been ... Read more

I did my favorite Jackie Warner workout this morning, Xtreme Timesaver Training. That is one great workout. Even with all the squats and lunges, my knees are pretty happy today. Not sore, they feel a little tight. Super busy day at work. That'... Read more

I tried out my new shoes this morning on GW28K w1D3. They were quite comfortable. My calves were a little sore from yesterday's workout but my knees did not bother me at all on the run. They were a little sore later but are now okay. I think the... Read more

I got up and got my workout in even though I wasn't really feeling like getting out of bed this morning..but I had Jillian whip me into shape (NMTZ with 5lb weights for all of it...I think I could use 8's for the biceps and plank rows). My shoul... Read more
Yoga, New Shoes and Cookies

Since Sunday has become my yoga day, I decided to try out a DVD that I hadn't tried yet. This one was Yoga Conditioning for Weight Loss. It's definitely a lot slower than Yoga Meltdown but there's still quite a bit of movement. A solid 45 minute... Read more
It's Suddenly Sunny

My knees were feeling pretty good this morning so I figured I'd try GW28K W1D2. I used my new shoes with the fancy molded to my feet insoles. Maybe I haven't quite gotten used to the insoles 'cos I could feel it in my feet a little bit. My knees... Read more
The Shoe Problem
Friday, December 10, 2010      10 comments

As you know if you've been reading my blogs, I've recently had issues with my knees. Which are feeling very good today, thank you very much. Some people suggested that perhaps it was my running shoes causing the problem. These are new shoes of... Read more
Long Day
Thursday, December 09, 2010      9 comments

I got up and decided I'd try out the Gateway to 8K running program because it increases the running intervals very slowly and I think that's what my knees need. The first week is run 7 minutes, walk 1 minute x4. Today when I got off the treadmil... Read more

The concert last night was excellent. One of the best shows I've seen in a long time. I'm glad I got a chance to see The Wall live. My Mom wouldn't let me go in 1980 when Roger Waters originally toured with Pink Floyd. Then when he performed it ... Read more
B210K W3D1 and Sore Knees
Tuesday, December 07, 2010      11 comments

I got up this morning and my knees were feeling pretty good...just a little stiff going down the stairs to feed the cat. I filled up my 1L water bottle and turned on the treadmill. I did my W3D1 run/walk- run 17 minutes, walk 1, run 17, walk 1, ... Read more

I thought I'd give the Bob Harper Inside Out DVDs a whirl today. I did the two short workouts (about 20 minutes each). One strength training and the other from the cardio disk that was butt and balance. Not really high calorie burn for the 40 mi... Read more
