Still Running

I've completely lost track of what week I'm supposed to be in the 8 week program (I'm thinking past 8 weeks), but I still continue to progress. This week I was able to run for 10 minutes (run 5, walk 5, run 5). I think I'll continue this pattern into next week.

What Week is This?

Running, week 2, I think I hit the wall. I moved to another apartment at the end of week 2 and took a couple of days off after moving before starting up week 3. Week three consists of walk three, run four, repeat four times. I couldn't seem to get past running two minutes before needing to stop! So, I decided to continue with week 2's regime for week 3 and 4. Towards the end of week 4 I was able to run 3.5. Despite my stubling block, My stamina conitiues to increase. Starting slow works, the last thing I want to do is burn out. A friend agreed to do a 5K with me in Spring 09. This gives me an ample 6 months to train.

Running, Week Two

Day one, week two, difficult! This week it's walk five, run two. Up from last week's walk six, run one. I may have had a rough time today because I did Saturday and Sunday back to back. I'm running every other day. Mondays are rough for me, so I like to run Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. So unfortuneatley, I'll have to do Saturdays and Sundays back to back. A day of rest tomorrow (just walking the dog, no running)and maybe I'll feel better Tuesday.

Sub Blog: Running

In true ADD fashion, I've taken up another hobby. Last Sunday I started a beginner runner's program. I walk the dog every morning and evening and everyday I see tons of folks running and jogging, which made me want to join in! I like running on a treadmill, but by comparison, the ashphalt and sidewalk is more difficult. I found an 8 week walk/run program online that I think will work well for me. While weight loss is always a nice result of working out, my goal is to incorporate runnning into my lifestyle and maybe run a 5K some day :)

I Love the New Millenium

I now welcome myself into the new millenium with the purchase of my first laptop. I'm uber excited about it! I had to include Bosley in the shot :)
