Got up late so I didn't get out on the road until after 10:30.
I did a short run today because it was a bit warm and humid this morning. Got a very nice surprise though. When I ended the workout, a message from Lance Armstrong came on telling me I had a new best time for a mile. Whoohoo!!!

Got out on the road around 9:00 am this morning. I'm still plugging along with couch to 5K week 6. Today I ran a total of 16 minutes and walked 23. I went for distance rather than time today so officially the workout was done before I got home.

Daily Stats:
Route:C25K - Fence line past Dickmans
Distance: 2.35 miles
Total time: 39
Pace: 16:35
Ave. HR: 125
Max HR: 137

It's really motivating to me when I see other people posting their workouts.
It is gorgeous out today. I am slowly working my way down to the Summerton corner. The Highland Festival 5K is in a couple of weeks, but to me it's not a race - it's another day to workout, only with a crowd. LOL!

Ran the 5K but don't have the official results yet. will update later.

Daily Stats:
Route:C25K - DE/Loop/Back
Distance: 1.5 miles
Total time: 30
Ave. HR: 119
Max HR: 140

Got out on the road at 6:50 this morning because the babies came over at 8:00. I love early morning runs, but I have to prepare my mind the night before because in the morning it is too easy to talk myself out of it. I made myself turn off the light at 11:00. I am a night owl and I will stay up all night if I get involved in something. It's the getting up that's hard. Once I'm up and out the door, things are great!! This morning it was just getting light. The ground was icy, but I loved the feeling of the brisk breeze on my face and the look of the farm fields covered by the last snow of the year (I hope). I am on the third week of the C25K. You're supposed to let a day go by in between, but I love getting out there so I will repeat the days for the rest of the week.


Sunday, March 20, 2011 - Happy First Day of Spring

I weighed in at 231.4 this morning.  That's down 1 pound from last week. I am really wanting to hit that "below" 230 level.  I did my C25K this morning. It was really chilly, but it felt great to get out.  The deadend is still a bit messy, but not nearly as bad as it was last week.  Oh, and I found my HRM!!!!  But now I can't find the chest strap.  The one I used this morning didn't work.  I'm listening to an audio book by Pam Young at the moment.  I went to the deadend, back to Walter's woods, and home.    I am finished with week 2 of the C25K!

It's been quite a while since I posted, but I haven't totally disappeared.  Everyone around here seems to be training for 5ks.  Anna started Couch25k a few weeks ago.  I will officially be starting soon.  We just got back from Las Vegas and I knew there would not be much opportunity for any formal training.  We did a TON of walking though so I got some exercise in.  I hope to be more regular in updating this blog from now on.
