Not too bad...
Monday, June 28, 2010      2 comments

I had my weigh in this morning. After 8 days on the road, I weighed just 1 pound more than when I left! Not bad! (Also considering I have some water retention.) I was disappointed not to get a workout in this morning. My daughter is in cam... Read more

I'm home! We've been gone 8 days and it is good to be home, though we will miss New Mexico! I did a lot of exericse: 3 runs, 2 bike rides, a lot of hiking and walking, and some ping pong. On the other hand, I ate well the first 4 days, but... Read more
Still off track!

I still ate horribly today! Part of it wasn't my fault as there were no healthy options at ranch we were at...but I guess I could have prepared better. But, I also just let myself go again. I won't be home until dinner time tomorrow, so it might... Read more

Last night my sister-in-law and I rode 7.4 miles through the hills at the base of a mountain in a desert in NM. The sun was setting and the sky looked like it was on fire. There is one peak on the other side of the city and it was beautiful to s... Read more

Last night I did w2d2 of c25k. My mother-in-law watched the grand babies in the park while I ran near a mountain in NM. I quickly learned i needed to drink lots of water! I got dizzy during my first run. And I learned to run down a long hill and... Read more

one way to do it...
Friday, June 18, 2010      3 comments

I went on my walk/jog this morning and was still debating about whether to do W1D6 or go on to W2D1. Well, somehow, when I'd charged my iPod, I must have deleted W1! So, I 'had to' do W2! And, I did it!! I ran for 1.5 minutes at a time! I don't... Read more

Can you do 5K starting from the couch?
Wednesday, June 16, 2010      9 comments

I just posted this question on the C25K forum, but thought I'd add it to my blog, too. I'm wondering if others on the C25K program are really starting from the couch or do they start exercising in other ways first. You see, I haven't done ... Read more
Week 2 Weigh-In
Tuesday, June 15, 2010      3 comments

I had my 2 week weigh-in this morning... and I'm down 3 pounds! I'm thrilled as at 1.5 weeks I was only down 0.5 pounds. I knew the scale would catch up eventually. I'm still running on momentum and staying within all of my goals every day! I wa... Read more

So, last week I did Week 1 of C25K and my calfs were KILLING me every timeI ran. I bought some new shoes at Fleet Feet this weekend and thought that would solve my problem. It didn't! I was re-doing W1 so a friend could join me and, at about my ... Read more
