Day 48

So Friday I was told to stop running till the pain in my ankle goes away. She took an xray and there was no signs of a stress fracture. But it only hurts when I put pressure on it. Walking with an ace bandage still hurts.

I can still do other workouts that don't involve jumping on my feet. So time to bust out the old magazine moves. Shape magazine and stuff like that. Backing out of the half marathon this year. I can still do the 5ks cuz I can walk then if need be. 5 more weeks till the dodgers run.

Eating better is the most important right now. And most of eating better include salads, fruits and not eating much. My love of food is going to change. I still wanna keep Sunday funday, just don't go crazy with the portions.

Day 44

I yet my ankle running over a week ago. I've run on it since but I've also skipped a couple of runs to rest it. It hurts to walk on it. I need to see a Dr about it but I don't have the time...
I work this weekend... Maybe I'll have it looked at then. Jon can do my xray

Day 41

Grabbed a couple friends to go running today. Jenn pushed me and it felt great. There were times I felt like I couldn't breathe and there were times I felt like I was gonna puke. I walked till I could breathe and would go again. Sometimes I wasn't as ready as I thought. Next time I'll bring the inhaler.

I have to work both days this weekend but need to fit a 5 mile run in somehow. Sunday would be best but I prefer to run on Saturday. I have a dentist appointment Saturday morning so I'd have to wake up real early.

This past week wasn't so great. I typed doing the daily workout and I'm already regretting it. Once I start that back up I will be sore again...I just know it. I wish I had a workout partner too. Bryan isn't as supportive as I'd hoped.

We'll see what this new week brings. I still have 325 days left

Day 35

Ran after work like planned! It's easier some days. With Elva out I can just get out without talking and I gave a better run. Today I felt the push. There were many times I didn't feel ready to run yet and I did anyway. A few times I really walked to catch my breath fully.

I really need to stop running on a full stomach. It's needs to be closer to 2 hours after eating. I'm pushing 14 minute miles, but I feel I could do better. I know I'm pushing myself harder cuz my face gets red again and my shirt is drenched.

I figured out how to make ranch taste like restaurant style ranch, so my salads will be a more permanent staple. I could eat that ranch all day! Adding chicken, bacon, cheese, almonds and cucumber and I've got a great salad. Sometimes I add hard boiled egg and make it a Cobb.

As long as I have ever day like today, I'll be looking good soon.

Day 33

After doing 20 crunches, 20 squats, 15 lunges and then doing the daily app my legs feel like they need a bigger challenge. So time to up the number. 30,30 &20. I need to throw some arms in but I'm not good with push ups. It would have to be girly push ups. We'll start with 10.

So today I learned I really don't like to train on the treadmill. The warm up and cool down time throws me off and makes my time seen longer than it is. I learned that I don't consistently run at 4mph or 5mph nor do I walk at a steady 3mph. I started watching the clock to push myself. I even got to 7mph for almost a full minute!!

This week Bryan is on call so he can't run after 5pm. His workouts are gonna be in the morning after I leave for work. This means I have to run all by myself. I may run a day at work just to keep in the mood. Elva is out for the next two weeks so I'm the late person. And since I'm gonna be there late, I might as well run. Not everyday will I feel like running, but a couple days I need to.

I have fallen back on my training. I'm only running two miles. When I run at work the minimum is 2.5 miles round trip. And when the weather is right I can run 3 and 4 miles. I was supposed to run 3 miles today and I only did 2.  This week needs to be a good one....

Day 30

Closing in on ONE MONTH!

Not bragging about this first month. But it's all about One Day at a Time! And today was successful! I decided to time myself with the running app. I have it linked to Facebook automatically now when I complete a run to help hold me accountable. Also I like to check my pace. Tonight was on a pretty full stomach and I did the best I've done in a while.

This Saturday I have to run 3 miles. Earlier in the morning is easier to not have a full stomach but sometimes not enough fuel.

Bryan pretty much stayed with my pace, which is nice. He could run longer than I can but the stop lights let me catch up. If we had the dog I would feel faster... He's not used to running distance. He's usually dragging his claws by the half mile cool down. I just need to run more than one mile a day.

..... Maybe I could run around the block in the morning with the dog to get him training!?! It wouldn't hurt me... It could give me that extra push I'm looking for! I wouldn't have to do it daily cuz he'll need recover days! Monday and Thursday for sure! That's a great though for next week!

Day 28

Got up at 6am. Didn't actually get out of bed till about 630. It was rough to get started. I started with cardio and that wore me out. Tomorrow I'll start with abs and finish with cardio. I was able to get out of the house on time this morning even after making my own breakfast.

I feel good today. I did have a glass of coffee, but I feel more awake and a little more energized from working out in the morning. I got to work today and hit the ground running!

Going for a run when I get home whether I want to or not. I have to get ahead of the weight game. This Thursday will be a whole month and I'm nowhere near the goal I set. The real goal isn't till October 1st... But I'm already behind.And with the increase of meds I am a little worried.

Jenn and I are planning on running together a couple times in August. I think it'll be good to run with her. I think we are the same pace right now.
