Feeling good!

Sunday, November 09, 2008

I have been running now for 2 weeks. My first time back outside was 50 some minutes to run a 5k. The other day I went out and did the same run and was back home within 35 minutes! The 5k I'm running is coming after Thanksgiving!!! I'm just so excited to be outside and in the COLD at that! I got new running shoes the other day truly my first pair of running shoes....first time getting fitted properly etc... and OMG what a difference it is. I will never just walk into a sporting good store again and buy shoes off the shelf not for me nor my kids. Rich and I went back a few days later and I bought winter running pants, bra and the shirt. I've used the bra and oh boy do I like it. Tomorrow I plan on using the pants and the shirt as it's only going to be in the high 30's...I think, I may of been drifting off to sleep when I heard the temps earlier.

I'm also excited to find a routine and website to help with lifting weights and training the right muscle groups on this and that day. I need the structure of that. I just can't decide tomorrow morning okay lets do arms...okay now what??? I was looking thru SP pages this morning and found this one page with tons of links and that is how I found this other site that I will be using.

I'm tired of imaginig and picturing what I could look like in 6 months out...I want it, I know I can get it, it will happen I'm done picturing it!

    Hi. I'm glad to hear you're enjoying the weather...cold as it is. Sounds like the running is helping you emotionally too. Endorphines are wonderful.

    I have not been doing much in the way of exercise. I was totally obsessed with doing my online course, and finished last week! I got my first paying job on Monday and finished the job today. I returned the completed job to the court reporter along with an invoice. So, I guess I will find out in the next day or two if I was able to live up to his expectations. I hope so. It is nerve-wracking. I hope I will be ablet to build up some self confidence after I get a few transcripts "under my belt."

    Anyway, just wanted to stop in and say "hi.' I have been thinking of you often and hope that your family is well. Take care.
