Weigh-In | 8.1.11

So, it's Thursday already?!  Where does time go?

Yep...once again, life has got in the way (I almost typed "weigh." - Ha!). 
This week....................................I was up.  To be honest, I was surprised.  It wasn't a perfect week - but, hey - it wasn't bad, either - by any means.  I was only up by just over a 1/2 lb. (.6).  Still yet - it was up.
Being up ALWAYS throws me off.  Especially when it comes to blogging.  Hate that.  I've meant to do it.....but, just haven't really got around to it. 

However, here I am...blogging about it anyway.  I've been doing ok this week.  I've felt a little under the weather.  As of now - I've done 4 workouts in 4 days....with tonight's Turbo Kick class making 5!  I took two Turbo Kick classes on Tuesday!  That was pretty tough - but, my SIL just added a 2nd class to Tuesday nights.  It was an off night for me....I wasn't feeling great, so I didn't put my all in it.  I was seriously expecting to burn over 1,000 calories, but came out just under (964, I believe).  It was still a great burn!

On Sunday I started the Couch To 5K program again.  If you've been reading a while, you know I've already completed this - and may wonder why.  Well, I've been trying to come up with a good way to increase my speed.  I thought that if I go through the program again - running at a higher speed, it should get me all prepped to improve my time at the Prevent Cancer 5K in September.  What do you think?  Think it will work?  I've only completed one workout this week, but I'm planning to finish them on time.  Even if I have to run all weekend!  Ha!  I really felt that workout on Sunday.  It wasn't hard for me, but I really felt that run in my hips the next couple of days!  It does feel good to push yourself! 

Well, that's about all the time I have today.... I hope your week is going well, wherever you are! :)


  1. I actually googled that couch to 5K today. I want to start running. Did this work for you the first time?

  2. If you can already run 3 straight miles the best way to increase speed is too try to cut your time by a minuet or two each time until you feel comfortable doing it at that time, then cut another min. ect.=) I'm no expert though! But Someone told me that putting lots of miles on your legs first before worrying about speed is the way to go. but i am with you. I always want to beat a time!! cute blog! :)
