    sorry I have'nt been making here.. I have been getting the workouts in! I belong in a 13 week challenge and boy did they crank it up a notch... so many points to rememebr to get in.. it has been tough keeping track of everything.

    I am proud of myself.. I am working on my 11th week of actually sticking to a program. I think it helped that I took measurements this time around.. because I still have only lost about 5 pounds in that time period.. but I am losing inches.. so I assume that the weight will eventually have to drop too??? But seeing the inches has kept me motivatied... before I would stop 8 weeks in when the scale didnt budge... so Yay! Good for me!
    3/7 this week so far.. with a tough 90 minute Sunday and 1 planned again for today! I better get on it!!
    Keep it up ladies!!

    I think that we must be a busy crew!!! I ended last week at 3/7 with a 5 mile run on Thursday morning.

    So far this week I'm 1/7 with a 9 mile run yesterday. Was planning to get up for strength training this morning, but the baby had bad night so I was too tired, and I was also pretty sore from the 9 mile run. Planning 3 mile run tomorrow morning.

    Happy Monday all!!

    Hey Heather!! You are doing great with the runs... wish I could be better about that.. I absolutely dread it! This week I am running just 1 mile every other day... trying tostart slow... I think it is so weird... I don't mind doing boot camp like drills, or HIIT trianing.. but whne I htnk about running for a long period... I dread just getting the shoes on????? Crazy!
    I ended last week 6/7... this week so far 2/7. I have been lifting a lot more weights..Week 11 I believe... yay!!

    Great job with the 6/7 Debra! I don't always really WANT to run, but I know that I have to if I want to be ready for the half next month!

    So far this week:

    1/7 Sunday with a 9 mile run
    2/7 Tuesday with 3 mile run
    3/7 this morning with a 5 mile treadmill run.

    Saturday I will be at 4/7 with a mud run obstacle course with some colleagues--should be interesting!!!

    I finished the week at 4/7 with the mud run. Thankfully it was too cold for them to make some of the obstacles muddy, so instead they were dirt pits. I did manage to get fairly dirty though--and burned calories and had fun in the process!!

    1/7 yesterday with a 10 mile run on the treadmill. The weather here was rainy and chilly so I didn't really have a choice. I would MUCH prefer to run that distance outdoors. Fortunately I have a TV and DVD player in my gym so I was able to watch an entire movied while I was running to keep myself from getting totally bored.

    Today is a rest day, but I've got a 4 mile run planned for tomorrow morning. Hope you're doing well and keep up the great work!!! Six workouts per week is amazing!!!

    4/7 Saturday with an 11 mile run

    This week I was 1/7 yesterday with a 3 mile run and planning to run tomorrow before work.

    sorry Heather... I have not posted here in a while! I have been involved in some challenges that involve points and checking in a few times a day and it has kept me biusier than I thought it would, but very motivating!
    When is your race? That is coming up right? I know you did one recently.. but I thought you had another one planned?
    I am doing well with exercise.. finished last week again 6/7 and this week I am going hard 3/7, and I have one planned for later today after the grandkids leave. Spring break here. and I woke up with a head cold yesterday... probably because the weather is NOT at ALL Spring like!

    We had to replace a water heater Easter Sunday :(
    My son went to Church with his girlfriends family, my daughter had to work and my oldest daughter had plans with her inlaws... so I watched church service from my recliner.... :noway: :ohwell:

    Ugh, I'm sure replacing a water heater on Easter Sunday was NOT on your list of things you'd want to do! Great job on keeping up the awesome burns--you've had some really great numbers lately!!!

    So I ended last week at 4/7. Friday was a 5 mile treadmill run and Saturday was a 3 mile treadmill run.

    This week I'm 1/7 with a 12 mile run yesterday. My race is just a few weeks away (4/28), so now I get to start tapering down on my mileage. The race has been a good motivation factor but I'll be glad when it is over!!!

    Hope you're doing well, and I hope Missou is okay out there!!!

    No run this morning. :( Was up past midnight prepping walls with hubby so that painter could get started today. At least wine made that a more enjoyable process! :)

    Meant to also say that I hope everyone is doing well, I know Debra is busy with other challenges, but haven't heard from Missou lately.

    Hey Heather!!
    Lost my laptop for about 10 days... and then I up dated my phone and had all sorts of heart ache!

    I am still hanging in there! Workingout 6 days a week with one day of rest.. I wish I could say the weight is melting off of me.. but I am still struggling with the amount of food to eat to see results.. sigh!

    Was down this week with a migraine.. but feeling lots better today!
    Have a great weekend!

    Good luck with your half this weekend.. that is so awesome!
