  • 2/7 with a 5k run in the wind. It was terrible on the lungs, but it made me run faster.

    Thanks makeitallsue. I am hoping for the best but everyone at work keeps telling me how much weight I have lost.

    Hey...look at me, made it back for an evening Hello!! HOme from the track meet... still cold and super windy... those poor kids would come around the second turn and the wind was just stopping them in their tracks... My son came home with 3 blue ribbons and 1 red. He is blessed to be very athletic...so proud of him!

    Nie long walk Ivy!! Woo hoo
    and Thinktank... seriously, you were out there running in the wind too today???? Awesome!

    Hey to everyone else... Verda, Hello friend... thought I might meet you here about this time. Hope you're doing well!

    Talk with everyone tomorrow... I have a run planned... 5k for sure, but who knows... you all motivate me to push it... might try for 5 miles if I am in the groove! :)
  • 1/7 with 4. 25 mile walk

    Debra great job getting in the fitness. It was cold and windy here too!
    Thinktank you are beautiful and will be extraordinarily so on your big day!!!
    Heather, you rock!! Running after having a baby is just amazing to me. You'll be at your desired marathon speed in no time.
    Verda, Hope you had another great day today!!

    Good evening everyone!

    It's so much fun to check in and see all the hard work everyone is doing--you guys rock and certainly are keeping me motivated! Thanks for all of the kind words! I'm just so happy that I feel well enough to be running again--I really missed it during pregnancy. Thought those words "I missed running" would never come out of my mouth!! :wink:

    Speaking of running......my 2/7 yesterday was 45 min on the treadmill, 36 min run @ 5.4 mph plus 9 min warm up / cool down walk. It felt GREAT to run over 3 miles again! I'm going to try to run 3 days per week, zumba once per week, and do the elliptical 1-2 days per week. I guess I should add in some strength at some point--maybe on the elliptical days. I just really want to work on my endurance and speed for running now. And I am super psyched that my hubby wants to run with me! He's a natural athlete--the kind who doesn't train for races and then wins his age division and can finish a 5K in 23 minutes or less--it drives me crazy!!! But we've ordered a super fancy double jogging stroller and he'll get to push that to slow him down while he runs with me. :smile:

    Planning to go to zumba tonight, so I'll check back in afterwards for my official 3/7. Hope you ladies are having a great day and keep rocking it!!!

    Oh, thinktank I'm so sorry for your loss! 56 is way too young to pass. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    My 3/7 yesterday was one hour of zumba. Planning a treadmill run later today when little Blake will give me a break. He's been super hungry lately, eating every 1.5 to 2 hours--I can't get anything done!!!

    Hope everyone has a good day!

    Happy Belated Birthday, Ivy!!!!! :drinker: :flowerforyou: :drinker: :flowerforyou: Did you do anything special or fun to celebrate? Hope it was a great day!!

    My 5/7 today was 45 minutes on the treadmill, 35 minute run @5.4 mph plus warm up and cool down walk. The first 25-30 minutes felt great, but the last 5-10 were tough today. I'm a bit sore from Zumba on Tuesday, so maybe that was part of the reason. Gotta keep up the running though, because hubby and I signed up for a 5K on 5/19. The 5K is a fundraiser for one of my partners in my Department who is a Pediatric Rehab physician (takes care of children w/ disabilities and special needs) so I figured I should support him and signed up to run, however I didn't realize that May 19th is just 3 weeks away! YIKES!!! Oh well, I won't be setting any records but I will try to run the entire thing unless the course is terribly hilly and then we'll see.

    Happy Thursday everyone! Hope you're all having a great day!
