Its our Anniversary!

Seven Years!
I celebrated by getting up early and going for a shorter run. I have plans to run Wed and Fri with my friends. We are going to do 3 miles and 4 miles.
Happy Monday!
I'm pretty proud of myself for getting up to get it done!

While I am slightly irritated at myself for leaving the sensor part of my Nike+ at home and do not have a graph...I am so proud to say that
I RAN 4 MILES this morning!
I picked up Kristina at 5:30 and got to Judy's at 5:45. I had lots of frustrations and ick to run out. And run I did. I felt so strong and comfortable. While I know that I will have hard days, today was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!
Happy Friday!

The early bird

Runs three miles.
Thankful for my friends!
(not sure what the dip was...could be the part where the GIANT bee flew in my face for a minute or two...not that I screamed and flailed or anything.)

Cool two

It wasn't really cool.
Nothing here is cool.
I am grumpy about the humidity.
I did 2 miles today. I have plans tomorrow and Friday to run with friends.

A run with a good friend

Wow! What a difference a friend makes. My friend Judy came over at 6 this morning and we did 3 miles. Almost felt easy. Having a friend kept my mind off the actual running! Feeling good. Going early is worth it because it really beats the heat!

Weigh in

I forgot to post last night.
I weighed in last night...
Lost some more poundage!
Total loss is
-8.8 (in 5 weeks)

I think the decision to have my weigh in day to be Monday helps keep me on track throughout the week, especially the weekend!!!

Tuesday Challenge

I set my alarm for 6:15 this morning. I woke up at 6:10!! I got ready and got out the door. I decided last minute to only do 2 miles because of my small hiatus last week. I will do 3 on Thursday. I was totally surprised that the whole time I felt so comfortable. While I was running I thought of a challenge for my sister! :) I want to challenge you to run one mile this week. I know, its hot. So, get up early! You don't have to go to you could get back in bed or take a nap! Mostly, I'm bored of reading my own posts on this blog!!! Love you.

A whole week...

since I ran last.
I got sick early last week and it kept me from going.
The ugly truth is, the more days that go by without running the more I believe that I cannot do it. Its just too hard. Takes too long. Too hot. get the point.
I just did 2 miles today. It was hot so I let Chloe spray me with the hose when I got home. If I had a pool I would have jumped in. The run felt good. Now, I hope to be back on track.
Happy Sunday!

It has rained LOTS this week. I got the chance to get in 2 miles tonight. I felt good and fast. The fast part has me mentally preparing to start smart Sunday morning. I don't want to start too fast. This will take some work. Its easy to get caught up in the atmosphere of the event and not have your head and your pace in check. I think that being in registered is my main motivation these days...whatever it takes. Happy 4th of July weekend!
