False start...

So much for getting back on schedule with the running... I think the big problem is I've been thinking that I would do it in the evenings. (I should know better). I really need to add it to my morning routine (and then if I do it again in the evening, then even better!).

But, since after today I am off for the next 11 days, I really have no excuse not to get it done... I don't want to let down those who have agreed to do this race with me (and I don't want them to back out either!!)

Happy Humpday!

More updates...

It's been a little rough of a week with the hip hurting and trying to find a time to run...

9/30 - running day: I only managed to do 15 minutes of run/walking before the hip acted up. I finished off the workout with half an hour of walking. 45 minutes in total covering 3.1 miles.
10/1 - non-running day: 20 minutes on the elliptical machine and a lower body workout with Sean
10/2 - just a full-body workout with Sean
10/5 - upper body workout with Sean

... I decided to rest the hip for a little while and not run over the weekend. Thankfully, today I am pain-free! The running starts again tomorrow. Of course, I need to learn how to stretch properly so that I don't hurt myself again...

So I found out my friend who was planning to run the race with me has to work... boo!!!
BUT, I have 2 friends who have agreed to run it with me... yay!!!

Happy Monday!
