225 min run this morning
WOW MrsAR, I am in awe! That is fabulous Good for you!

It's so cold and rainy here, and I hate the treadmill, so I've only had short walks with the dog most of the week, and a quick 2 mile walk this morning by myself.

I'm at 1127/1500.

Adding 90 mins from yesterday. Got super dehydrated from not drinking as much water - you still sweat in the cold! Stay healthy everyone.

Just wanted to share

I wanted to share a running epiphany I had yesterday and figured some you wonderful folks would understand. I set out for my run yesterday which included a mile long stretch that is pretty hilly that I wanted to run a total of 4 times. I was coming back from stretch #2 toward the end where I would have to turn around to go back up and down it for the last 2 times and encountered to unsavory type characters. I smiled and offered a cheery hello, but realized that my current route would take me past them 2 more times, and to be honest I did not feel threatened, but really did not want to tempt fate. I knew I could just alter my route and keep heading forward and work my way back home, and this is exactly what I did. Actually I felt so good that I ended up running an extra mile. As I walked the last blocks to my house as a cool down the epiphany hit and it hit hard- One year ago had this same thing happened I would have just run home as I was only a couple of blocks away when I encountered the need to alter the route and chalked it up as fate telling me I did not need to go long that day. The difference a year later I realized is how important exercise and moving my body has become to me, and to be honest heading home never even crossed my mind instead it started clicking away on how I could still get my long run in and which way I should take to run from there! Really kind of proud of myself! Thanks for letting me share!

Wow - it was cold and crazy windy out there today. Wind-chill of 6 degrees. It's so hard to run when the wind keeps knocking out your breath.

Cardio and a bit of strength.

49 minutes

I've been so busy getting ready for our family Thanksgiving dinner this past Saturday, cleaning and organizing our new master bath, dressing area and walk-in closet, and organizing for our trip away for Thanksgiving. I feel like I've had plenty of workouts. LOL!

New minutes:
11/25 - 25 minutes elliptical and 45 minutes strength and core (personal training with Killer Kyle).

Brings me to 1300/1300!

I'm doing a 5k on Thanksgiving morning and I'm sure I'll have other minutes this week, so I'll try to update later in the week.

Thank you, Rose, for hosting!!

Adding 50 mins strength and a chilly run.

Huckleberrykate - I am not picking on you because I have been in the same situation more than once and probably made the same choice, but I want to offer another perspective. I TOTALLY agree that seeing your recognition of the importance to exercise is a great thing! It's nice when the little things that used to be excuses are no longer good enough. It shows a positive change in priorities and evidence of a healthy lifestyle.

However, there are times when it's just not worth one more mile. Runners are very guilty of feeling invincible, but we are not. Consider the fact that if someone did try to run after you, they would be chasing you on your tired legs, not fresh legs. Even out of shape men can run pretty fast. Also consider that two or more is enough to easily overpower one. I was followed quite recently in my very small, very safe town - it really opened my eyes to how easily these things happen. My husband came to get me and he was more than happy to do that when I explained why.

The immediate choice is between a shorter workout and a longer workout, but remember the real choice (and we don't always know it at the time) might be between one last workout and years more to come.

I don't want to make anyone paranoid, or fearful, but we are responsible for our own safety as much as our fitness. It's running safety month, after all! There are always other routes and days, and a simple call to the police is not overreacting if you feel unsafe. It's their job to know what's going on. You did the right thing by looking them in the eye and addressing them directly - that can be a good deterrent. But please don't let the joy of being healthy and fit outweigh the necessity to ourselves and our loved ones to be safe as well.
