Need new updates

Alright ladies! I want to know how you are doing! The Give n Gobble is in 2 weeks. How do you feel? You should be able to do 25 minutes comfortably now. If not, keep trying. Go a little slower if you need to.

Next week, for your 3 days I want you to do 28 minutes all 3 days. Then I want to hear how it goes. If you put in the effort, you will see results, I promise.

I hope to hear from you soon. Good luck in class on Monday!

25 minute run

Hey everyone! I am not making it to the gym today due to a sick 2 year old and me feeling under the weather also. So, I was hoping to get some reports here on how your 25 minute run went. If you haven't done it yet, I know you can! Just do a short warmup, a few skips, and then turn on some music and take it as slow as you need to.

Good luck and let us know how you do!

Week 3 workout

Finished workout #3 for this week last night -- and it felt pretty good.
I ran really slow, with a two minute break right in the middle, for 30 minutes.
Moving the strength training to the end of my workout has certainly made a difference,
now if I could just resist the goodies I'd be on track. :) :)

I am going to try and squeeze in another run this weekend, just to make up for the cupcakes!

Starting over

I'm feeling really bummed because I have been sick and havn't run for about a week and a half. So my fear is that I am having to start over and am going to be way behind everyone else. I was always the last anyways. So just have patience with me and hopefully I will get my motivation back real soon. I hope everyone else is doing great and reaching your goals.

I see we have Coach Katie and Krista from the Monday night Couch to 5K joining us- welcome! I would encourage everyone to post their own introduction. You can comment on this post, or you can make a post just for you with pictures of you. I look forward to getting to know all of you through the blog and through our runs. Let me know if there is anything I can do!

Week 2 Check In

Hey everyone! I thought we could do a post each week where anyone can comment once they have completed a workout. Feel free to include workouts that aren't running related. We want to know how it's going!

Exercise is a Choice

Thanks to a great start to the week with all of you, I have had one of my best weeks of exercise in a few months. I took it slow and just focused on getting my runs in and my basic weight lifting. I had planned to meet a good friend of mine for a long run this morning. We were meeting at 7am, so I was looking forward to "sleeping in." I was a few minutes early so I checked my email. There was a note from her saying she was sick with the flu. It was dark outside and I didn't want to run on the treadmill, so I just waited for it to turn light. Then I got sucked into the internet and started running out of time and losing motivation. Eventually I did get out the door, but for a much shorter run than planned. It was beautiful weather, the leaves were gorgeous and I felt great. I was so glad I went, but disappointed that it took me so long to make the decision. I am telling you this story because each day we make the choice whether or not to exercise. It takes a conscious effort. We have to find our motivation, whether it be a good chat with a friend, lifelong health, playing with our kids, or looking good in our wedding dress- we have to find what gets us out the door. We also have to find our backup reason. :-)

Hope you all enjoy your Saturday! I look forward to seeing you on Monday.
