Week 1- Just the beginning

Monday was Cardio day. L2R plan was to run 30 sec walk 90 sec. I am way beyond that! So I increased my speed from 6.5kmh to 8kmh. I was originally going to stick with c25k until week 9 was completed. But I figured to start with l2r and increase my speed was probably more appropriate. Particularly since Mish designates speeds to run at. And my 6.5kmh is not anywhere near her speed designations. I am also now running at 1% incline. It is my hope to get the incline up to 2%.

I did do one alteration to the program. I ran for 60 sec and walked 90 sec. I really worked myself to run that 60 sec repeatedly. Last week I was able to run 8kmh for 62 seconds before decreasing my speed. Tomorrow is my weekly running test. I hope to make 2 minutes before having to stop. I will keep my running tests at 8kmh to stay consistent. Although I ran at 0% incline.

Because of my time delay, Mish has me weigh in on Tuesday mornings. I was down 1.6 pounds from last Wednesday.

I can't believe it! Al and I were traveling with AEIC Wed through Friday. Then Friday through Sunday we were in California with Siemens. I kept my food under control with AEIC. I even exercised. Even when I was sick Thursday morning (diarrhea and vomiting) I still walked. Friday was my chosen rest day. Saturday we walked at the PGA Pro-Am tournament. Sunday I was still not feeling well. So no exercise except walking through the airport.

Our flight on Sunday was canceled. I walked through the airport again on Monday. But did my treadmill workout when we got home.

Then I dropped Erica at piano and did my grocery shopping. Then came home and made MB Pizza. YUMMY!!! So good I had it for lunch again this morning.

I have MB carrot tabouli and hummus wrap in my lunchbox here at Erica's gymnastics. But the shallots are very strong. I think I'll wait to get home to eat it!!
