Short-Term Running Goals:

In the next 6 months I would like to feel fitter, look fitter, run faster, and not feel like an elephant plodding along. I would like to improve my 5K times, and run a marathon in October. Goal for the marathon is 4:30. Not sure if this is possible....

Long-Term Running Goals:

Let's just get through the summer, then we can talk about long term running goals!


Trying to get in shape through running. Not sure I enjoy it -- I feel it too much, I am too loud running.. it is not graceful. Not pretty. I have had some euphoric moments running, like when listening to Bon Jovi (I know...I know) or Tina Turner (you're simply the best!!) but these moments are not that often. I love how I feel after accomplishing a run.

I love the treadmill.... Love my ipod... blink 182 (are you feelin' this..) and a whole mish mash of other tunes that get me moving. I want to be better, faster, more graceful... and more accountable- therefore I am here.

Ran this morning on treadmill..... Call me a dork, but I love the treadmill. It is consistent, smooth and I am in charge of what's happening.

I warmed up with 1 mile walk... the did 3 slow miles of just running a very easy pace...12:00, 11:00, 10:00 then for the next mile i did some speedwork. 30 second intervals with 2 minutes rest. I did 4 fast :30 7:30 mile pace, then for the last one I did :45 6:50 second pace. Do people really run faster than that???? felt good. 4.5 miles.... i will get on the scale son to give myself a benchmark of where I am... just too afraid to know now! Anyway, great to find this tool as I get started on my journey to "re-fitness". Talk to you soon... Jill

yeah!   I motivated myself to run after work-- on the treadmill-- my beloved treadmill.  Felt fine tonight... just did easy miles, with every mile faster than the previous one.   I started at 12:00, then 11:00, 10:00, 9:00, then 11:00 and then walked for a few minutes to cool off.   I feel good!  

Now the challenge will be  to see what happens tomorrow! 

 A sincere thank you to those that commented- wished me well, and encouraged patience.   You are right, I will get there... I am excited!   More tomorrow.   Ciao!
