I will run/walk a 5k every other day and do strength training and/or a different cardio on off running days.

Today~ treadmill (5K): 5 minute walk at 3.5 mph, 21 minute straight run at 4.5 mph, then finished the rest of the distance in intervals, running at 5.0 mph and walking at 3.7 mph. Total of 42:10

Way to go GG!

This thread is so bad for my ego. Here I was being all happy at what I do, my measly 1 mile run/walk/sweat/gasp/fall scenario, and you guys all kick my butt!

But, this month I'm stepping it up some. So, please get after me if you don't see me post. I tend to hide when I've been slacking.

Yes - lurk! I READ about exercising...and sometimes that's as close as I get.

It's definitely not second nature yet, but I'm hoping I get there. I really love how I feel after, and during! It's the before that gets me every time.

Thanks Gloucester! Don't be hiding....I kinda felt the same way on the C25K thread when I was struggling to run a few minutes and everyone else was running full 5K's, lol. Just keep at it and keep adding minutes and you'll be running a 5K in no time!

I'll find you if you don't post, lol.....:w00t:

YEAH GG!!!

today -

just shy of a 2hr walk or SLOW crawl with the dogs. i realized today that the 2 big guys together are my starting weight just about - one is 93lbs, the other 105lbs:eek:

ebony, i think of you when i walk the big boys (making their donation to every mailbox...LOL) they are doing much better on the leash. wish the ranch and it's 60+acres would be enough for them, but as the weather is cooling - i actually enjoy the time out w/them.

where is ceradad & whosya???

I've been doing 2 to 3 mile walks daily with aerobics and arm exercises and then stretching to cool down each day 30 to 60 minutes. Hopefully today at my last weigh in I will have lost some more weight. It's my last weigh in for the 6 month supervised diet for insurance and my paperwork gets submitted on Monday then I was told I should get approval within a week or so. :tongue: I am getting so excited now but now everything seems to be moving so slow. I will continue to exercise while waiting. :tongue:

Checking in -

Last night was back to school night which lasted way too late. So, no exercise yesterday.

I woke up this morning and did 30 minutes on the treadmill. I didn't try to beat my time, but kept a fast pace. My slow was 3.0, fast was 4.7.

I feel good, but I want my coffee. And I want it now.

OK - This is the first time I have joined an exercise challenge thread. I've lurked a lot, been embarrased by my pathetic efforts compared to most of you guys (I would usually read your posts, and mutter under my breath that you were all hard-core fanatics with masochistic tendancies)....

But here I am. So, my committment is to swim 4 days a week, and do some other activity 3 times a week.

Oct 1 - swam for 30 minutes; briskly walked for 40

Oct 2 - swam for 40 minutes; briskly walked for 30

Oct 3 - swam for 30; paced outside my office door for 70 minutes.

Feel free to contact/encourage/harass me if I disappear from view...

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
