strong body, healthy spirit.

1.5 mile run outside - fast! I hit the mile mark faster than I have since I started “training”…so that’s cool.

Still need to pull out a 3.5 mile run for my “long” run this week. I may try for it tonight.

Today’s workout:
- 10 minutes on the bike, high resistance
- 1 mile run on the treadmill
- 10 minute cool down walk

I went to the gym tonight because it was too dark to run outside. It was a good workout!! I’ll run outside tomorrow.


Ran 2 miles tonight! It actually felt easy this time. Hopefully that means I’m building endurance…I need to get to 13.1 ;)

Running update!

Agh I am so bad at this blog. It’s been a crazy 2 weeks - spent a week out of town then moved to a new apartment! While I was out of town, I only ran twice - 1 mile and 2 miles. Last week, I ran 3 times - 1 mile, 2 miles and 2 miles. Need to step it up this week! My goal is to run 5 times and do a 3.5 mile run.


1 mile run today. That brings my week total to 8 miles, which is right where I should be right now! I probably won’t run tomorrow, but I will do some sort of exercise.


45 minute walk and 1 mile run today! My mileage for the week is at 7 so far, so I’ll probably hit 8 or 9. I need to be doing at least 10 a week by the end of the month!


Ran 3 miles today!! :) That was one of the big goals for this week. I’m “training” for a half marathon, and part of that is to have one “long” run each week, increasing by at least half a mile each time. So, next week’s long run will be 3.5 miles.

I may head to Second Sole in the next few days to get new running shoes. My current ones are over a year old, and my knees and shins are taking a lot of the shock when I run.


Walked for an hour and a half with a friend today. It was a beautiful day, and this was a nice way to get exercise while giving my legs a rest. Back to running tomorrow!
