So I went for my run today and fell...

My ankle just gave out (probably from carrying all that weight around).  I just got back up brushed myself off and started walking then running.  The guy behind me probably thought I was a freak.  I have awesome compression socks, which I finally found the sister!  I did my run better this time though, but I still think I should repeat one of the days before moving on.  I'll run again on Saturday.

Yoga Morning

Is it just me or is Yoga booooooriing.....super yawn.  It does make me feel better though, so I will just push on.  I was super sore yesterday but decided to go out and do my run/walk app yesterday any way.  It was a total fail.  I am supposed to be up to 5 minutes of running and I kept having to stop halfway through.  This might be because I have been run/waling more days a week then the app says (3 days a week is not enough for me).  So today I took off and did some Yoga in the morning instead....bleck.

BTW I could only find one of my compression socks from the good old days and now I have one leg that feels ok and the other not so much.  Call me lopsidesy.  I guess that proves that they actually do work!  I bought a new pair on is just painful to dish out 40 bucks for a pair of socks.

Way Too Long

It has been way too long since I have been in he blogosphere.  I have gained several pounds and stopped running all together. Not good.  I think I need to get back into what was making me happy and keeping me thinner.  I had a Couch to 5K app on my cell phone...which I would use for a couple days and then give up.  I realized that part of the reason I was giving up was the treadmill - the other part was laziness.  I get really bored on the treadmill and hate what I am doing.  I really love to be outside.

 I started running outside and now I have made it through 4 weeks on the Couch to 5K program.  I am almost to the 5K running marker. Once I get there, I am not sure what I want to do...perhaps another half?  I really just like running for 2 reasons, (1) I like to be outside and (2) I LOVE to eat.  When you work a sedentary, inside job and factor in those two items, you will gain weight.  Which I have.

I am committed to finishing the program and I am now accountable.
