I ran 2 miles today!! I can hardly believe it. When I started training for this tri I couldn't make it a mile!! Now I'm up to 2 miles! And the tri is still about a month away. If I can make it up to 4 miles this month, I'll be SO excited!!! I have to run 3.1 for the Sprint Tri...I think I can, I think I can. Anyway....tomorrow is most likely a swimming day!

Today felt sort of like a swimming day. It was raining, but I'm tired of using the rain as an excuse not to exercise so I went out running in it. I had SO much fun splashing through the puddles as I ran. My feet definitely didn't get hot. I felt like a kid just out playing a lot of the run. It was great!! I hope everyone else's day is going well.

Default July Exercise Goals

Hello ladies,

I'm up for the July exercise Challenge! My goals:

- exercise 3X per week
- continue my new longer walk to work (40 minutes each way - uphill in the morning! )
- include toning in my gym days (1 day arms, 1 day abs, 1 day legs)

SAPF, hope that you enjoyed your nice long walk! I went for a great walk by the river on Saturday...the weather was so beautiful here. Hope that you had similar conditions!

Betty - when is your triathalon? That is amazing! A friend of mine ran in a marathon last spring, and I was thinking of trying to train for a mini-charity marathon in the fall. I have been exercising and improving my fitness level for the last 6 months or so. How long have you been training for the triathalon? You'll have to let us know how it goes!

Kris,

Thanks! My tri is July 27th!! It's not a long tri. It's just 660 meters swimming, 13 miles on the bike and 3.1 miles running. I've been training for it, for slightly over a month. One of my good friends encouraged me to do it. He's the guy that when I say I'm going to do something he pushes me to truly follow through...usually without saying much, but he just expects that when his friends say they will do something even if it's a personal goal they will do it.

So I mentioned the Tri idea to him, I think it was one of the days he was reminding me the importance of breakfast. Anyway...he said he thought it was a wonderful idea. I had no idea where to begin...but I did begin just started jogging, then got myself an inexpensive bike from Kmart, and contacted someone in town about using the local pool early in the AM for swimming to train. One of the guys in town who does tri's has a key to the pool so I swim with him and a couple of guys early in the morning on the days we do that. And here I am a month later!!

I think that your idea of training for a mini-Marathon this fall is a WONDERFUL idea. How long is the mini-Marathon? When would it be?

Hello,

Welcome back Jess! Do you have a specific exercise plan that you are following in July? Hopefully this month will be a bit easier for you time-wise now that you are out of school...I looked at your web-site....you have made amazing progress with your weigh loss! You must be so proud of yourself! Congratulations.

Betty - Wow! That guy sounds like a good friend! Good for you for following through with that plan.

I was really thinking about a fun-run that I WALK every fall to raise $$ for cancer research. For me it is like a marathon! It is really 10km...which I think works out to about 7 miles. The run is mid-September, so I should have time to get in a bit of outside running. I'm just a bit unsure of where to start. I think that I will look around a bit on the Internet and see if I can find some ideas. I am very open to suggestions from everyone on the boards, too!

Thanks for the bit of inspiration Betty! Let me know how your triathalon goes! Won't it be great to be able to say that you have completed a triathalon?!

Kris

Hey Jess....glad to see that you are in for the July Exercise too.

Such A Pretty Face...GREAT Job on the walking.

Kris-- The fun run idea sounds like a great plan! I think a 10k is actually 6.2 miles. I just know you can do it!!! I'm going to work my way up to that one of these days. I will definitely look around for ideas as to how to help you start with the running. Some places I've seen have suggested starting with a walking/jogging combo...and I do think that's the best way to go. Let me know what you decide to do...and I'll look to see what I can find to help too. How smart to have started early on thinking and planning for the Fun Run in Sept! That is great!!

I will definitely let you know how the Triathlon goes!!! Yes it is going to be SO great to be able to say that I've finished one. I'm so excited about it. I can hardly believe this is real!!

I biked about 6 miles (or so) this evening. I had to stop b/c it got too dark. I've not heard back from my swimming buddy so I'm not sure if I am swimming in the AM...if not then tomorrow is another jogging day...time will tell.

I hope everyone else is having a great day too!

Betty

Becca,

I think that's an excellent goal that you want to try to do the exercise video from HS 3x a week...and Exercise balls are cool. I used one for a while!! Welcome!!

I biked 6 miles today and jogged 1. I was working on my transitions from biking to running...talk about rubbery feelings legs the first part of that mile I was running...thankfully they improved as I ran.

Hello all,

Really need to get back into the exercise...have been away from the gym for nearly 3 weeks! I managed to gain 2 pounds last month. Not the direction I was hoping for! On the plus side - I have continued to keep my two 30-40 minute walks up.

Betty - I looked up the information on starting to run. I think that I am going to aim for a mix run/walk program. I am posting the link, just in case you (or anybody else) is interested. This site actually has some really great information on all types of exercises. I have used the toning section in the past to help develop a gym routine. They use video to demonstrate the exercises, which I find helpful.

There are still 3 weeks left in July - here's hoping that I can pull it together! Hoora!

Good luck to all....

Kris
