Our Injury Report

Several months ago I signed up for a 5K race at a veterinary convention in August. August is a long, long time away. I recently came to the conclusion that August is now sneakily less than two months away. I haven’t been running since I hurt my hip this winter. That isn’t because the hip […]

Long Run Day

I’d been putting off my next long run because of a monster cold. It was hard for me to breathe while sitting still let alone consider breathing while having to run for 25 whole minutes. I went out today with my route all planned out. That impressed the heck out of me yesterday. I was […]

Pride Goeth Before…

So I was pretty proud of myself for running for 20 minutes straight. Two days later I was scheduled to go back to intervals. 5 minute run, 3 minute walk, 8 minute run, 3 minute walk, 5 minute run. No problem, right? I started out and at 2 minutes 30 seconds I was dying. I’m […]

Week 5 Day 3

I’m losing my mind. I swear I’ve been looking forward to this for days. This morning I got up early and did week 5 day 3 of the couch to 5k program. After a 5 minute warmup walk, run 20 minutes. Remember just last week when I was whining about the program thinking I could […]

Running

I’ve found out that the biggest part of doing this running routine is mental for me. I’m on the second week of it. The first week was warm up at a walk for 5 minutes, then jog 60 seconds and then walk 90 seconds. Repeat until you get 20 minutes which is 8 repeats of […]

This week

My first sunflower finally opened. Across the street there are lots of sunflowers and I was having sunflower envy. Now I feel better! I’ve done all three of my running sessions for week one of the Couch to 5K program. The good news is that I’m not having shin splint problems at all! I’ve been […]

Run Around

As much as I’ve liked the Body for Life program, I still haven’t seen any weight loss. I’m sure this is entirely my fault since I’m not following the food plan and I’m a lazy cardio person. The only part that I’m doing consistently right is the weight lifting portion and I’m seeing great results […]
