This is what 3 miles on the treadmill looks like….
could my hair be any more sweaty and flat?
My co-worker and friend, Joni, is training for her first
5K, so I’ve decided to “kind of” train with her and we
send each other our times for doing 3 miles…..this was
38min 52 sec for me (at the gym, in the a/c….Joni gets up before
work and runs outside!)
Not too long ago I could jog 5 miles without stopping, but then
I kind of quit doing cardio for a while and now I’m having to
start over from scratch,
but the improvements come weekly.
I’m jogging for 1/4 mile and then walking 1/4 mile….
this week I was able to do some of my jogging at 6mph,
it’s a mental game for me really.
Maybe next week I’ll try to walk 1/4 mile
and then jog 1/2 mile.
I find it easier if I play mind games with myself.
I like listening to podcasts while I run,
it makes the time pass a little faster.
I’m working my way through some of Jillian Michael’s podcasts.
You can get her podcasts HERE.
Last night I watched an episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter”
where she interviewed Olympic gold medal winners.
Can you even imagine being a world class Olympic athlete and having
body image issues?!
I also got in a little hooking with Sandy
and Kelly earlier this week…. (actually it was the same day
I ran) this is them waving
to Patti in Florida via text messaging.
Here is Patti, waving back….
Isn’t technology great?!
I didn’t get gobs of hooking done that night as evidenced by
the picture below….
….but it’s coming along. Can’t wait to finish up the bottom
portion of the rug, so I can start the embellishing on the top!
Cleopatra is healing well, but not really wanting to eat much
of anything…….tonight she gets to skip one of her meds to
see if it is what is squelching her appetite.
