Yup! I have a group run tonight as part of my training for my first half-marathon!

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Absolutely! I'm going to aim for 70-75 minutes today instead of my usual 60. An hour for me comes out to about 3.8 miles. So hopefully I get a good 4.25 miles today!

Why choose failure when success is an option?
If you want to change your body, you must first change your mind.

I hope it clears up so I can go for a walk with my two little ones in the jogging stroller. It's something we all enjoy a lot!

JO TRA69 - I love those walking DVDs. My mom gave me one to try, and I was not expecting it to be so difficult! Indoor walking is amazing.

BWM00MAU - I am also working on being able to jog/run without taking a walking break. I can currently jog 1 mile (at 4.0 speed) without stopping. I'm sweating and panting, but I can do it! This week I am working on being able to run 1.25 without slowing down. Sometimes I get frustrated when I see it takes me 15 minutes to run a mile, and it only takes me 20 minutes to walk a mile. However, I have to keep reminding myself that in time when I am stronger I will be able to run a mile at a faster speed.

Keep up the hard work!

I have my pedometer currently attached to my PJs (we have a snow day today). Not being at work will make it hard to reach my 10,000, but I will try my hardest.

I plan to run at least a mile on my treadmill and then walk 1 to 2 more miles.

Neither today I am going to the gym and going to get on the elliptical trainer for 30 minutes. I feel like since winter has sent in I have lost some of my MOTIVATION. I need to get it back and take off the last 30 lbs that I need to lose. Think emoticon
