Back in the Gym

Today I went to the gym and got to the treadmill. I know I should have waited until Monday to start running again like the doctor told me, but I just wanted to run.  I took it really easy though so that I would stress my tendons more.  They were starting to feel much better…

Today, I Feed the Relaxation Dog

Tonight is FitMix, and I’m pretty upset I can’t go.  FitMix is one of my favorite workouts and I look forward to it every week.  Sadly, this week I can’t “feed the positive dog.”  My doctor said I can’t go because it could make my ankle worse.  So instead of feeding the negative dog (which…

Injured…Minor Setback

So on Thursday I started to notice a weird pain in my left ankle.  It happened almost every time I took a step by the end of the day.  This was not a good sign.  First off, I was super paranoid about it because the only time I ever broke a bone was my right…

From Rest to Runs…

Thank god it’s a rest day!  My legs are very sore and there is no way I could run on them today.  I’m already dreading the 5mile run tomorrow.  I haven’t gone that far since I started training this year, so I’m a little worried about how my body is going to react.  Right now,…

I Need More Motivation

So I started a 10K training program to keep myself motivated to keep running after I finished the Princess 5K.  I even found a potential race to try and keep myself motivated…too bad I haven’t been keeping with that training program… So I came home for the weekend. Its be unseasonably warm here in Michigan,…

My Body Hates Me…

It all started last Wednesday at Fit Mix.  It was killer.  By the end of it, my legs were so tired and just shaking.  It was not the “easy” night I had been hoping for seeing we had just got back from Spring Break.  It was a great workout, but my body wasn’t happy with…

Possible Upcoming Race

So as I mentioned in an earlier post, now that I’m done with the Disney Princess 5K, I’m looking for a new race.  I started a 10K training program last week, so I thought, why not look for a 10K race in May some time?  That’s exactly what I did. On May 20th there is…

Stats to Date

I got this idea from another runner’s blog.  I figured this is a good way to keep everyone up to date on where I’m at since I started runner at the beginning of this year.  Plus, it’s a great way for me to keep track of my own progress. I started using Nike+ to keep…

Back to Work

Today I started training again.  I don’t have a race or anything in mind at the moment, but I want to keep myself going so that once I find a race to do, I’m ready to go! Today I started a 10K training program.  I figure this will give me the motivation to run some…
