I know exactly what you mean! The hard part I have is learning how much is too much. I know I can't deny myself everything because then I'll just be miserable or go overboard later, but I have to learn that moderation is key! For myself anyways, it's much harder than it sounds, but I'm working on it. Good luck to you!

Friday worked so just my 15 min core and stability balls situps

Saturday 90 min run/walk. I learned there is a reason the lion runs for his food and then takes a nap AFTER he eats. Went out for BBQ and then went for my run. Not a good idea. That was a loooong 90 min.

Today 60 min walk Helped crew a half marathon and DH and I walked to our aid station and back. Plus I did alot of pacing at the aid station. 45 degrees is great to run in but gets darn cold standing and handing out gatorade and water.

New total 1380/1200


Dis*mom don't stress over getting your mins in, do what you can and make a goal to push a few more mins each month. I work 12 hr shifts so only 3 days a week AND all the kids are out of the house + I am training for a half marathon so it is easier for me to get the minutes in. Life is so much different with no kids in the house.

Mrsdrake you asked what new sport we wanted to try. I am in the process of getting a bike and relearning to ride. DH has been so great about my running that it is time for me to reciprocate and do some bike rides with him. If you see a pink pillsbury doughboy on a bike in the Pacific Northwet that will be me wrapped in bubblewrap so I don't get hurt when I fall down.

I also signed up for a ChiRunning workshop to learn how to run better.

Indygirl, thank you for your words of support. I will keep pushing forward, and I know it will be different without kids in the house. I cherish the time I have right now with my family

Yeah I don't know what happened. I blinked and those darned kids grew up and are now adults giving me grandkids.

I don't plan to ever blink again. Maybe the grands will stay little for longer?

Thanks for your input
I found as long as I just stick with being consistent, I can usually get my time in after work. I have a schedule that I pretty much stick to: yoga Mondays and sometimes Wednesdays, run on Tue/Thu/Sat (when I don't have a PT appt), and if I can manage to get the butt out of bed, elliptical before work Tue-Thu. I've been sticking to this schedule for a long time now so I don't even think about, I just go. I've read it takes 21 days to make something new a habit, so if you can do something consistently until then, you'll be good to go. And if you're ever looking for inspiration, just come back to the DIS!

The jury is still out but I'm cautiously optimistic. I went for a slow, easy 5 on Saturday and felt about 80%. I tried the KT tape which I think helped, stopped to stretch often, and took more walk breaks than usual. I slowed down alot and kept to about a 10:30-11:30 mile pace. I'm going to run one more time on Wednesday, and depending on how that goes, I'll decide for sure then. I just keep telling myself all I want to do is finish standing upright, then I'll take the next 8 weeks off. I figure I can start serious training for the W&D in July.

And don't sweat the local races! I use them as "progress reports" to see where I'm at race-wise and see if there is anything I should be changing up (stride, pace, food/drink, etc).

40 mins for me today. Hal Hidgon told me it was time to run a 5k "test" in order to get ready for the real thing (one month away!!). Amazingly, I was actually nervous today thinking about it, right up to driving over to the neighborhood I run in. And nobody was even there to watch! The goal was to learn from the experience and prepare better for race day.

I learned: I went out WAAAY to fast (nerves?), and I need to not have twice as much coffee as normal on race day. Buzzzzz!! My HR was through the roof.

I also took MRSAR and Figment1990's advice about the Garmin, thanks! Much better experience this time, fully charged and I started the "search" while I stretched and warmed up.

The good part is that having that out of the way now, the "real" one will not be so intimidating. I hope. Last time I ran a 5k was less than ten years ago but it's still been a while. I never trained properly for that 5k, so my only goal for this one was to beat that 5k time (having actually trained this time) and I managed to "PR" in the test run, so a good omen so far. Guess Hal knows what he's doing! Don't know if I should hope to run even faster on race day or just "see what happens" but either way, I'm much healthier than I was before and that should be enough.

(I'm using the 5k Intermediate, slightly modified, and I really like it. Challenging but realistic.)

Ah yes, the inevitable " I went out too fast and at mile 3 I'm going to die"...been there, done that. I've learned to just crank up the music at the start and ignore all the "serious runners" around who are zooming right off the line. More often than not, as long as I stick to my pre-determined race plan, the only one I'm competing against is myself and the clock. Of course, I always love taking the last couple of miles to start picking off targets one by one. It gives my brain something to do instead of spacing out in la-la land.


3/23 - PT-30, run-57, shoveling dirt-20

Brings March total to 1094/1400. And down the stretch she comes!!

1495/1700

I've been frantically pushing numbers and am pretty sure I can do it! I've decided to skip my stretching class this week since it's spring break, the teacher is out of town and all the students have decided they want to go for coffee instead of class! Unfortunately that means losing 100 minutes! Think I'll be okay.

Dis*Mom--just do what you can. Heck, you're thinking about it which is more than most people are doing! Good for you. I was a SAHM when the kids were little and went to the Y (free babysitting) to get my workouts in. Now they are teens and I can do what I want. I work out while everyone else is in bed because after a long day of work, making dinner, attending whatever event the kids are involved in that night, I just have no energy left! Not that I'm bouncing off the walls at 5 AM, but at least I'm moving!

Indygirl99--I have a friend who does chirunning. He had back surgery and was told he'd never run again. He'll be doing the Ironman in Hawaii come October--and certainly not for the first time! He has a very distinct stride/style but boy can he tear up the miles! I hope you learn lots at the clinic.

Home stretch! We can do it!!
