Running the Good Race


Was able to go running up North Mountain yesterday with minimal pain. My toe is getting better. I will try to run 3 miles tomorrow after work.

The stationary bike has helped tremendously. My legs were strong going up the mountain and my cardio was strong too. Hopefully I will be able to run long runs again soon.

Running the Good Race


I was able to ride the stationary bike this week as well as walk on the treadmill. My toe is definitely getting better.

We did our annual Thanksgiving hike this morning up North Mountian and my toe did fine. It hasn't hurt much all day!

I will do the treadmill tomorrow, weights, and stationary bike. I think that will help my cardio.

Also, I will go up North Mountain on Saturday and possibly run on Sunday afternoon (3 miles).

Running the Good Race


I was awake on Saturday for about 3 minutes when I broke my toe.

So, no running for awhile. I borrowed my sister-in-law's stationary bike to keep my cardio up until I can run again.

I am hoping (and praying) that by Thursday I can go on our annual Thanksgiving Day morning hike that my family does. Today I did the stationary bike for 30 min. and it felt great. Some pain from the broken toe, but nothing I couldn't handle.

Will do the bike until Wednesday, hike Thurs. and try to run on Fri. Hopefully, by Sat. I will be running regularly again.

Darn those bed posts..........

Running the Good Race


Had to work full time this week substitute teaching. Was too tired on Wed. to run and since I worked at GCC at night, I couldn't run on Tues. or Thurs. after school.

So, I had to wait until tonight to run. It was nice and cool out this evening for a 3.5 mile run. I was tired, so I didn't over do it. Knees were a little tight at first. Think I will purchase some new shoes next week.

Will run a mile and do weights tomorrow then run 10 miles on Sunday after church.

Running the Good Race


Ran four miles today at 11am. It was nice and cool out. So fun to run now in cooler air anytime of day that I can. I did the 4 miles in 40 minutes. Had some knee aches at first. May need new shoes before the marathon....not sure.

Felt great. Will do 5 miles on Wednesday.

Running the Good Race


The hubby and I set out to run 9.5 miles on Saturday.......and we did it in 1 hr. 35 min!!

We both felt pretty good, too. My hip was hurting this morning, but other than that I felt great.

No school tomorrow (Veteran's Day- hug a Vet!!) so I will run 4miles.

Running the Good Race


I decided to run 6 miles today and did it in 58 minutes. Felt great. It was only 66 degrees out and breezy.

Slight knee pain at the start, but it went away. Hardly any traffic where I ran and no noise or pollution at all. Much better than Tuesday! ...and no bloody sock. Yeah!

Will run 9 miles on Sat.

Running the Good Race


I had to sub yesterday and when I went to leave, I had a dead battery in my car. So, needless to say, I got home too late to go running.

Ran this morning instead: 3 miles in 27 minutes. BUT it was a huge mistake. I ran north/south on 7th ave and along Deer Valley only to breathe in alot of pollution. Ick!!

I think I inhaled about the equivalent of 10 cigarettes worth of carbon monoxide with all the traffic. It was horrible! NEVER again.

Will run Wed.

Running the Good Race


Had to sub Fri. so I didn't run. Needed to rest for our LONG run today....

We set out to run 8 miles, but we ended up covering 9 miles!! We both felt much better this week. I made sure and ate carbs the night before and drank plenty of water.

It was a good run. No knee pain and very little hip pain. Of course, we will be hurting tomorrow!

Tonight is our church's progressive dinner and we are going to EAT alot!
