Made it back to the 30 mile week.
Monday - 7
Tuesday - Off
Wednesday - 4
Thursday - 3
Friday - 4
Saturday - 12!
Sunday - off probably.

Funny thing, 2 weeks ago I ran 9 early in the morning with a humid, sunny day. I was tired all day, really just worthless.  But I ate nothing right after running, didn't have gatorade on my run.  Basically spent the day in bed.  This morning, it was cloudy and a bit cooler, but I ran 12 miles - the last one being 9:07!- and came home, drank chocolate milk and had a yogurt, ice bath.  I feel so fine now.  A bit tired, but nothing like last week.  Yay for taking care of myself!

We'll see if I can keep up the miles coming off of this higher than normal mileage week - or will the dead legs creep in?

food poisoning break

After getting 22 and 23 miles in for two weeks straight - long run of 9 - last week I had food poisoning which made me have a setback.  Started back running this morning with a run that felt amazing, a 7 mile run @9:36.  Granted, not real fast, but my legs felt great.  I think they liked the break last week. :)  Hope to get up to 30 in this week possibly.  Yay!!

Back at it

got 22 miles in this week with a long run of 7.  Trying to hold myself back from going to much too quickly.  Running 5 times a week is tough on these weak legs, so hopefully I will feel like a runner again soon.  Feels good to be running consistently again.  It's part of me.

Hoping to up my mileage to 25 this week, maybe a long run of 10.

Only 10 weeks or so until Ragnar.

2 down, 9 to go

I've done pretty well.  A few hiccups the past week, but weighed in this morning and I've lost 2 pounds.  If only I could lose 2 lbs every week, July would be good. :)

11 pounds to go

I weighed in this morning.  Not surprising, I weighed 136.  I have not been doing any form of exercising consistently for over 3 months.  Bleh.  And I have been eating whatever... for real, whatever.

I am on a diet right now - Just did a Nike training workout and about to go out on a run with the boys.  I have Napa Ragnar in 4 months so I have to start training bunches.

Here's to healthy eating and exercising.  :)

Getting back to it

So here it is, I have to start running again.  I ran a 1/2 marathon on no training at the end of March, and maybe once since then.  I am running a ragnar relay in September which isn't all that long from now.  My youngest fell this week and broke his arm, so more than likely this summer is going to be spent at home.  No swimming, no running and playing, no beach.... at home.  Bummer that it is, I may be able to keep back up with a running plan.  So that's my plan.

Here's to starting over... :) and for hot summer morning runs.
