I'm officially Insane!
Sunday, May 05, 2013      8 comments

I received my official Insanity t-shirt! I ordered a small and it's still a little big! I'm working on a picture. The weather has been insane. It's wet and cool so I haven't been able to run. I had a 4.25 mile route mapped out that I'm ... Read more
Pushing myself!
Friday, May 03, 2013      10 comments

Today I ran the neighborhood route, twice! I must clarify that my six hills are various sizes, with some that are more like an incline, but feel like a "hill" when I run! I walk the big ones. My morning run was about pushing myself. I've... Read more

I need to change it up!

I am consistently running the same pace so I think it's time to change it up. I may run my neighborhood route, which is shorter, but has some nice hills, twice. I also need to lengthen my 3.75 mile route. I think this is one of those lea... Read more

By last night I decided I was going to go on a run. I ran the same route with a very similar time. I just felt like it, so I listened to my body. I felt good after the run and still feel good this morning. I bought Hip Hop Abs by Shaun T... Read more
It's hard, to take a day off!

I NEVER thougth I'd say this, but it's hard to take a day off. I wanted to go run this morning, but I was tired. I actually slept in until around 7:00ish. That is really sleeping in for me! I knew I needed to let my body rest so, I took the ... Read more
I AM a runner!!
Saturday, April 27, 2013      9 comments

I feel like I AM a runner now! I felt I was ready to try a longer distance so I mapped a route on runnersmap.com and it came to 3.75 miles. I told my family my route and I started out. I should have worn a long sleeve under my t-shirt as I wa... Read more
It's been good couple of days.

I've been running the past couple of mornings. One day easier and today I pushed a bit harder. My girls had a varsity soccer game yesterday and the younger daughter made the first goal of the game. The game ended up going into a shootout and ... Read more
Figuring this running out!

I still haven't made it to Peak Performance, but I will get there. So far my Adidas are holding up. They were brand new, so they should be ok for a little while. I didn't run this morning. I am kind of paranoid of loosing my arm definiti... Read more
Added distance, but lost time.
Tuesday, April 23, 2013      6 comments

I decided that since I wasn't "winded" enough that I'd add a little distance this morning. I only added 4 or 5 blocks, but I was pleasantly surprised that I ran it 5 minutes faster than yesterday. The tips I've received have really helped so ... Read more
I hate to admit, but I think I like this running thing.
Monday, April 22, 2013      4 comments

I got up at 4:15 AM to run. I thought to myself that this is true insanity! However I got up, put on my shoes and was out the door. I followed my normal route and at one point I thought that I needed to add some more distance as this wasn't a... Read more
Questions about running!

This is for all you runners out there! I have received some great advice already, but I am opening up "the forum." 1) Shoes- I'm heading to Peak Performance, as per advice from a long time runner, to look at shoes. I have to be careful ... Read more
Am I a runner now?
Saturday, April 20, 2013      16 comments

I couldn't stand it any longer and I went running today. I mapped it and it came to 2.25 miles. I ran it in just around 30 minutes, so I was happy with that. I really don't think I'll get the "runner's high" that I hear so much about. I do g... Read more
Ate more and weighed less!

SparkPeople.com had raised my calorie range by 300 calories a couple of weeks ago when I was in the middle of month two of Insanity. I was worried! I also had to buy a new scale and I know there is always a difference when changing scales... Read more
I have a love/hate relationship with running.

It would seem like I love to workout, but in reality I can't say that I do. Don't get me wrong I like to exercise, but that would include power walking, horseback riding, mowing the lawn, playing sports, etc. Workingout is another story. ... Read more
