Run for your life...

I just completed the 5k I had been supposed to be training for this morning. I had been sick a few times over the spring and let my exercise/training lag quite a bit but I still did it and boy am I glad it is done! I am planning on registering for a 10k taking place in Aug and will need to get  serious about training for that one.
Today's run I managed to get in at 36.28 minutes time and 34. something chip time. Not really sure of the difference but either way i am D-O-N-E!!! and only a few blisters on the bottoms of my feet to prove it!
Yesterday I litterally had one foot out the door when the phone rang that my son wasn't feeling well and needed to be picked up early from Sunday School. That quashed my running plans but I did hop on the elliptical for 30 minutes once he was nice and comfy in front of the TV (and NOT sick of course-just an over reaction of the teacher) I have discovered that listening to music while exercising is way better than watching TV. Something about watching TV just slows me down and music speeds up my steps a lot! So with Red Hot Chilli Peppers playing nice and loud I probably burned sufficient calories to justify the huge peice of birthday cake I ate later in the day :)

motivation!

Haven't blogging much lately. Haven't really been reading the blogs either. Just feeling like crap all around but today I decided enough was enough and I got out there to run. I just put on my clothes, grabbed my iPod and ran. Did about 3km but that is a start. My goal for now is 5 k so i'm well on my way. I don't think i'm going to die at the 5k race i'm doing on may 27th-which is a good thing! What motivated me is a promise to myself that if I workout (even a little bit) every day for the next 30 days I am treating myself to a Lululemon outfit. Great motivation!!!
