Friday Update

Hey there fellow bloggers! I just wanted to share some of my successes with you this week... I am pleased to tell you that I am setting solid running goals again. This time I am following Terri-Lynn's advice and setting some goals, signing up for a race and just doing it. I am not going to be my worst enemy and question how good/bad I am... I am just going to let my skills evolve.

So, this week I went for two runs with another planned for tomorrow. I am running on a route that is 7.18KMS. I am planning three such runs per week, for now. I will be mapping out a longer route when I am successful in running this one fast enough... but for now, that is the goal. The first day that I ran it I managed it in 50 minutes and yesterday my time dropped to 45. I want to keep at it for one hour so I just cooled down a bit longer and in 58 minutes I managed to get rid of 707 calories. I love running for the calorie burn and for the challenge. I would be lying if I did not confess that this shit is HARD to do!! But, hey... I am doing it!!

So, here are a couple of pictures... one of me and my partner for the second run, you might recognize her... my SUPERMOM! She is insanely fit... I had a job to keep up... hope I can be that much of an inspiration to my children at 55 years young! The second is just proof of the calorie burn!

I mentionned in the previous post that my sister and I are starting a bit of a duel... to see who's weight-loss techniques are more successful. I would love to invite you all to visit our new site: Momma's Weight-loss and I am willing to hear all the advice I can get when it comes to running for weight-loss or home fitness solutions. I mean, I can't let her gym techniques win!

Thanks for your ongoing support everyone! Make it a great day!

Impressive running! I just can not get into it myself... after a run everything hurts in not a good way. Like my knees and ankles. Plus, I hate every minute while doing it. I do however admire people that can!

Awesome that you are on a running plan! I am best on a plan :) what run are you planning? I went to your other site and that took me on a disturbing visit to My Fitness Pal where I put in some of what I ate today (not the chocolate) and I am left with 81 calories for supper. Yay. UNLESS I go for the run I am avoiding. darned wind.

I am SO in awe of your physical abilities. I used to run a bunch, but never enjoyed it. Not after years. I finally came to the conclusion that my body is not built for running. Walking, biking, aerobics - those are all on my to-do list, but not running. So wow! You're amazing!

Good for you! It is hard to get back into the swing of things but one step at a time, right? Just getting out there is a huge step along the way. Signing up for races is definitely a great motivator and I find it helps to have a training plan to help me stick to my goals. Can't wait to hear how it goes!

Stopping from SITS. I have health issues, too (Lyme) and would like to say hurray to you for getting the energy and stamina to jog! :) I know it would help if I did more.
