I ran 5 miles!!!

... and all it took was a couple Motrin, Ben-gay, and ice.  So, maybe not the smartest thing.  But! as I was running the pain was less and less and pretty non existent by the time I was finished!  I'll try it again today! *finger's crossed*
I really want to run this 5k on 5/20.  I know at this point if I do, it won't be the sub 22:30 I was hoping for, but I would at least like to be pain free.  I don't run a lot of races so I want each one to be an all out effort and I've been running 22:30 "5k's" on the treadmill and would like to have actually done it in race.  So, I'm back and forth between running it know I won't do as well as I hoped and just waiting a running another next month.  

I had  a great strength workout and felt really motivated with the heavier weights.  I'm starting to feel stronger eeeeeeeeeeee!

Before working shoulders, triceps, and chest, oh and abs too!

Speaking of... I need new workout clothes.  I see a trip to the outlets sometime around memorial day (best sales).  I'm in survival mode for the next few weeks.  I really hope to be able to stay on track during what will be a very hectic and busy time! I'm such a creature of habit, it's so difficult for me to function efficiently when things get shaken up!  I think I'm going to start using my blog as my food/workout journal to keep myself accountable.  We will have company for the next 4-6 weeks... and that means there will be food around that I normally wouldn't keep around.  Hopefully it won't be a problem. My main issue is making sure to get my workouts in.  But I'm gonna do it!

Happy Tuesday!


Do you like routine or do you like constant change?

I crave routine!

When you have company, additional work, additional obligations, etc... do you find it hard to stay on track with diet and exercise?


  1. i never realize how much i love my routine until im out of it. when i visited my family i was so exhausted and tired of eating crappy that i couldnt wait to get back because i knew i would just naturally go back into my morning workout/eating decently routines. good luck the next couple of weeks! definitely sounds busy but also fun! so glad you got a run in tooooo!!!

  2. I do love routine!!! My family is here, from out of town, and I feel like I am falling behind on everything! Love having them, but love routine :)
