Catch Up

Doesn't it suck having to play catch up? I feel like that's what I've been doing the last two days. I was out of town on vacation for the first half of the week and we ended up staying at a hotel that didn't have a gym. I thought I would be ok with this, but didn't realize until I got home yesterday exactly how much I missed running.

The good news about my mini-vaca is that I went shopping at the Nike Outlet store and got some great new running clothes! I didn't realize what a difference they would make. I can't wait to run outside now!! Hopefully I get to go tomorrow before the crazy snow comes in on Saturday.

C25K Update

I've started my week 5. I should be on at least week 6 but I didn't have my accountability partner making sure that I was getting up last week and then I HATE not being able to comfortably complete a run, so I have 'redone' quite a few. But I completed week 4 day 3 yesterday and started week 5 day 1 today. It consisted of 3 x 5 minute runs with a 3 minute break between each run. It was a bit of a struggle, but I felt GREAT after I finished it. Hopefully I can do the same tomorrow. I'm still on track to be able to run 5K before my run next month in OKC.


How is everyone else doing? Anyone have any updates they want to share. Remember, this isn't just for's for you too. I hope we all are able to meet our goal of becoming fit!!!

Until next time


  1. Great job, Stacy
    It sounds like you are right on track for the marathon. I am starting my 3rd week of swimming and wieght lifting and i actually put on my ref pants for a basketball tourny on friday and they were so lose. I loved it. I also love swimming every morning. it really starts my day off right. I was really feeling better until i got blind sided by this broncitis and pnuemonia. I should be over it in just a few days and then back to the program. I can sure tell though when I take the weekend off!!! Keep up the good work!!!!

  2. Jered - So glad to hear swimming is going good for you. Seen on your FB posts that you're having a great time at the Y...especially with some of those older ladies...LOL. Glad to hear you're starting to feel and see the rewards of working out. How's the eating going? I know I've struggled this past week of spring break...hoping this next week gets me back on track. Keep up the good work.
