Week 2: Running schedule

After my partying like a rock star (not) wine post on Saturday, I am now posting my running schedule.

A little background ~ I have been into fitness for 20 years; and now at age 40 I decided to run a 10K marathon. The most running I have done was 5K on trails or baseball/soccer fields (and it's a struggling 5K). Friday was the first time I have run 4 miles and I was quite proud of myself.

I decided to push the envelope and register for this 10K mermaid run in San Francisco. I am nervous but I know I can do it.

Anyway, I modified a training schedule that I found online to suit my schedule and I have under 4 weeks left. Today I am taking a flexibility class at my gym for the over-exerciser and plan to do that every Sunday. I can't do my long runs on Saturday so I do them on Fridays.

For cross/strength I do mix in a lot of heavy weight training because I love weight training, but I will and I throw in some fun cardio machines and classes at the gym.

My mother gave me some advice and she asked me 'how do I picture my life ~ what makes me happy', so that is what I am doing and actually the point of this blog.

I picture myself as an athlete and that is what I am going to start doing. I have a lot more living spree things planned so stay tuned!

Red red wineeee

Red Red Wine
I caught up with an old friend last night and drank 1 glasses 'o wine too many... ugh! My aching head.

I'm in the process of training for a 10K on November 12, and this was not in my running diet.

On top of that, I need to work out later today.... sigh

Hello World!

Hi there blog world!

DS and I are still here. I have been going in warp speed and have been doing a piss poor job at managing my time and hence no blogging or reading blogs.

I hope to be back in the saddle. I miss it. I will spend the next few days getting caught up with my blog reading.

Everything is good with DS and I'm not doing too shabby either.
