5 Minute Runs (Day 65 of 100)
Tuesday, April 29, 2014      5 comments

I got up an hour early to go to the gym this morning & run on the treadmill before hubby went to work. My run was just so-so. I didn't quite meet my goals. I did four 5-minute runs during a 3 mile run/walk. It just never felt 'great' & it was pr... Read more

I went out for a run this morning as the weekends are so much easier to workout outside. (My husband works long hours & my daughter is homeschooled.) I probably should've taken it easy after yesterday's long ride, but I ran. During the first few... Read more

Thursday, April 24, 2014      9 comments

Yesterday was pretty bad, but today's a new day! I started out with about 8 minutes of kettlebell (including a warm up, so not a lot of kettlebell). My back was bothering me just a bit so I decided to stop for today. I got online and w... Read more
