Talking It's a Pain, but I don't want to GAIN!

I finally started a gym log! Yeah for me! I have been working out faithfully since 1/2/03 with this way of life, but the new thread Let's Get Fit Together has prompted me to start a separate log from my journal.

Today I started my running program to add to the lifting I have been doing at BodyGenics. I lost quite a bit of weight when I did that with WW in the past, so I am hoping for some fantastic results. Maybe some day I will even enter a marathon (one of my all-time dream). I have done two triathlons in the past, one sprint and one Olympic, but I could never bring myself to enter a marathon. Maybe in 100 lbs, I will do so!

So today's workout:

Run 30 sec, walk 4 1/2 min. Repeat 7 times for a total of 35 min.
Total: 1.74 miles
April Total: 1.74 miles

Not shabby for the first day! According to the book, I should be able to run a 10K by about the time the challenge is over, June 30! Wouldn't that be awesome!

Amy

Default April Goals

For the exercise challenge, I am supposed to make goals for April, so here goes:

1. Walk/run at least 24 miles in April (12 workouts x 2 miles each on average). EDIT: I have always wanted to run a marathon, so my mileage goal for April will be 26.2 miles! That way I will have finished a marathon in April.
2. Lose at least 1 in. in each waist and hips.
3. Drop 2% body fat (as measured at the gym).

That's all for now!

Off to enjoy the warm weather!

Default Wow!

You are really doing great! There is no way I could run/walk for 40 minutes right now. I am shot out after 20 minutes. Your weight training sounds real impressive too. I wish I could go to a gym, but I live 30 miles from one, and work 32 miles in the other direction. In case you haven't guessed, I live in the middle of nowhere.

Keep up the good work!

Hey Amy

Just a few quick questions! What book are you reading and can you give me some of the details of how your doing this running? I would like to get the most out of my cardio workouts. Walking is ok but not really intense enough. Full out jogging is to hard on me and my knees right now. But just from reading what you wrote this might be a good program for me as well. Right now I do biking for cardio when the weather is good and the health rider inside but I want more non-machine variety. Do you use a pedometer to see how far you've gone? I think tracking how many miles you go in April is REALLY cool idea!

Any tips you can give me would be great!

Thanks
