Fresh Air Needed

I have not been a good blogger, though that does not deviate from my past blogging experiences at all.

February was not a good month in terms of weight loss. I didn't gain any from January back, but my net loss for the month was about 4 pounds. Here's to hoping March goes a bit better.

Despite the weight not coming off as quickly as would be preferred, everything is going good on the running front. I'm up to 28 minutes at 12:00 minute mile pace and have been able to meet every goal in the C25k program that has been listed. I have 5 more runs to follow until completed.

I'm not getting outside nearly as much as I had hoped I would. So far I've run outside a whopping ONE time. Needless to say, while it wasn't a bad experience, it certainly wasn't what I expected. I'm very reliant on the treadmill to pace me. I started out way to strong and winded myself within a quarter mile. It took me about a mile to figure things out. After that I found my groove, but it certainly took longer than expected.

I wanted to sign up for the Get Your Rear in Gear 5k on March 18th. Reduced registration is offered until this Friday. I wanted this one in particular because they have a kids 100 yard dash with it. I would love to sign Desmond up to be mommy's running buddy! I really want to get more outdoor runs under my belt first though and not try to figure it all out on the day of. We'll see what I can do, but I may need to start later this month or even next month.

Because I'm such a freak for exactness I bought a used garmin forerunner off ebay. It's incredible what these things can do. I loved getting to use it and want to use it again, and after making the investment I have no excuse not to.

That's about all I've got for right now. My stomach has been upset all afternoon, but I felt a need to log in quickly and attempt to keep this thing alive.


  1. How are things going for you? :)

  2. They're coming along, albeit, not nearly as quickly as I'd (illogically) had hoped. Suppose I should update!
