Day 109

Started walking today. We only went a mile,  but we need to start small. Bryan pulled his knee and i hurt my ankle. It's been a long time since I've been able to do anything big.  When I did the Dodgers 5k, my ankle only bothered me a little,  but my hip hurt. I'm just so out of shape that i need to start small.
We took the dog with us. I thought it a good idea since 1) he doesn't get out and 2) he needs to stay small too. We can work him up with us. Then i can eventually be able to run with him.
I miss running... well,  the runners high was great.  I didn't feel that high after our mile tonight.  My sciatica hurt as well as my hip. Bryan's knee was a little sore too.
I'm hoping to do this everyday till I'm up to running. Then i can cut back a couple days.

Day 64

I'm glad I'm not on TV for this year challenge... I've been off my game since I've needed up my ankle. It hurt for almost three weeks before feeling better. I went about 5 days before it started hurting again. I'm thinking it's the shoes. But I can't afford new shoes till next paycheck.

I wanted to start off September right... But that didn't happen. I started school tonight so I couldn't workout at night and couldn't get up this morning. Maybe tomorrow?

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....
