Did a run

Not much to report, I did a run.  Trying to increase my speed.  It is going well.

A Tuesday night run

I took Danica to her babysitting course and then went for a short run in that area.  I had a hill to come up at the end and I ran the whole way.  I drove it, and see that it was a 3.5K run.  Funny thing, I did not find it hard at all, goes to show how far I have come, my usual run now is about 5.5K so the 3.5 one is easy - I do remember when I couldn't even run 3.5K!  Yippee.

Ran with Jason

Last night Jason asked if I would run with him today (he was sort of kidding).  Well he headed out for a walk with the dog and about 1 1/2 hours later I was just heading out for my run when he got back.  I told him I waited and he then felt like he had to come, hehehe.  So he got changed and we went out for a 5K run.  It was good.  He ran at my speed.  Perhaps this could be a regular thing for us.

Mid Week Run

Well Jaimee said she is feeling sick, personally I think it is TOM but oh well.  I didn't mind really as it was a beautiful sunny day and I have a very sore arm (for a couple of months now) so the gym actually hurts it.  I went for a run and it was a good one!  It felt good and I am happy I got to run during the week.

A tough go!

We have had so much rain all week, so much so in fact, that our streets even flooded.  But today was a beautiful sunny day so I went for a run.  I found it hard today for some reason so I did my shorter run, but better than not going at all.  I signed up for the Times Colonist 10K at the end of April so that is keeping me motivated!  My goal is to be able to run it in an hour or just over.  I have set another goal or two as well.  I am still sitting at 25 pounds, I hope to lose 5 more by the end of February and then hopefully another 5 by the end of April.  So I have to keep on trucking, and stay 'on the right track'.

Man life is busy!

I only managed to get to Curves once with Jaimee last week and that is all.  Life is busy but a fun busy.  I have a lot DT assignments I am working on as well as work and family life.  I did run today though and without my knee brace.  I  think now that I have lost the weight I won't need it, fingers are crossed (because wearing the brace gives me eczema and that's another story - so fun to age isn't it!).

Wow, its been too long!

Well I have had a GREAT Christmas holiday, LOTS of crafting and family stuff.  But very little exercise.  I did pretty good up until Christmas but then became a slug.  The weather was rainy a few days but mostly nice.  I just didn't feel like doing anything but staying home.  So I didn't.  Thus I didn't get to the 30 pounds like I had hoped but I also did not gain any which is a good thing considering there is always so much food and goodies around.  I am happy to stay I have lost a solid 25 pounds since July 1st and it feels good.  Oh and I did run today, now back to my regularly scheduled crafting (well after doing a couple chores).
