Here we go!!!!

Sept 1st~ C25K W5D1 (41:47)

Well, I did it! I managed to get up at 5:00am (even after a night spent tending to the girls over and over and over *yawn*) and I did the first day of week 5!! It wasn't nearly as tough as I thought it would be--and I'm chalking that up to running outside. I have a feeling that if I was on the treadmill I would have been having a harder time. There's just something about running outside that takes your mind off the fact that you're running at all. Does that make sense? And the fact that it was still dark out--added a bit of giddy up in my step! Lots of dark creepy shadows and big giant bushes for monsters to hide in ya know.

MsP~ I'm with ya! I really want to be at maintenance by the holidays too! I don't think you're getting ahead of yourself at all! I'd say you're setting a pretty great goal for yourself!

Okay Girls ~ it's the first day of a bright shiny new month!!! Let's get out there and move those bodies!!! Burn some calories and sweat on purpose!!!:runnin g:

My Minutes:
9/1: 48 min walk/run (2.5 mi run)...hope to add more min. later

Well, I took my 4 y/o out to the track with me and let her play while I ran laps. It was okay with her for the first 2 miles, then she was getting bored, so I cut my run a bit short (did 2.5 miles). The walking back and forth to the track did add some nice minutes. I don't usually run on the track anymore, I like the road better...more scenic. Anyway, after today's little experiment I've decided maybe it would be better for me to (God forbid!) get up early and run or bike before the kiddos have to get up for school. I know some of you do that, but I was really trying to avoid that since I've done it in the past and gotten a little worn down from it after a while. This time it should be better though, since I won't be getting up as early as I've needed to in the past. I think I'm gonna have to shoot for 5:30ish. Wish me luck!

Welcome back Jasonlea!

Aclai - I would suggest starting slower too, I remember having sore shins but nothing crazy, it was more the quads for me. Personally I had to pull back a bit in the beginning as my mind thought I could do more than my body could. After the restart everything went fab and have had no issues since.

MsP- I'm so looking for a run now, you have totally inspired me. I have a 10K plan waiting for my p90x to be finished too. A half does sound doable in my head, my dh has been wearing all his marathon finish shirts around a lot lately to tease me that I should aim higher but I think a half is lots.

Nello - Day 1 was good, got the run in and did chest and back w/abs. Those abs are tough, i don't think i've ever felt that much burn in my stomach before. But got it done and almost fell in my own sweat pool, no one said this was glamourous! Got plyo today so I'm super excited, it's my favorite. Good luck today and let me know how you did.

to all the new ladies, it's a great place to be and look forward to getting to know you all.

WEEK 1

Sept. 1 - HIIT W8D1 25 minutes; Plyometrics (p90x) 60 minutes

Tummy~Right back at ya, baby! Once I saw your post I went to find a schedule to gradually increase my miles each week. Look at the inspiration goin' on here!

I am burning calories left and right today with all the cleaning and stuff I'm doing, so hopefully it shows on the scale!

Surprisingly the walk/jog wasn't too bad. I think it was because I was outside on a beautiful beach and it distracted me. I think I got burned though. Opps. Suntan lotion tomorrow!
