It's all about the timing...

Had a great 1.5 mile walk/run Monday morning. Tried to beat my time of last Saturday.. and I did. 18m 23sec. :)

Also had a great bike ride with Bela last night!

Moon Moon Moon

Got up at 5:00 a.m. today, and walked/jogged for 40 minutes. (3.02 mi) The moon was just gorgeous. 68 degrees. Nice. Ginny Mac only chased one rabbit. Good morning.

Holy Heatwave Batman!

Today I walked along A1A in Fort Pierce. The morning began with clouds and lots of rain, but by the time I took Bela to school, it was sunny! High around 80!

Loved walking along the ocean! 6.61 miles in 1 h 26 min

Had a great 6.33 mile walk today with my Team in Training buddy, Wendie! It was pretty cold out there, but having someone to talk to really made the 1 h 35 m go by quickly!

My own 5K

Today my legs felt like they were stuck in cement. After 1.5 miles, I almost stopped then and there. But I didn't. 3.1 miles in 36 minutes. My Nike+GPS only timed me, did not record mileage.. but I know this route.

Felt good to run some. Happy Tuesday!

20 miles a week is a lot. If I was a distance runner, maybe it would not seem so daunting. :)

I have been telling myself since accepting the 1000 mile challenge, that I would bike ride to make up miles that I miss.

I am still behind this week on my mileage.. but I will not give up. Getting up early on Monday to try to get 3 miles in.

Two - A - Days

After Story Hour today I walked from Riverside Park, over Barber Bridge and back. 3.36 miles

Baby it's cold outside!

Got up to do 3 miles this morning. It as 47 degrees. Layers and layers were put on, and I got it done! Behind this week. Debating on whether to bring my tennis shoes with me, so I can do another few miles today... :) Happy Friday!

Rain Rain Go Away

Woke up last night several times due to the rain storm we had in our area. Kind of half hoping it be raining when I woke up.. yes, to skip the walk/jog. But, it wasn't, so I got up, got dressed at 5:15 a.m.

Tried using RunKeeper today instead of Nike+GPS, but it would not work for me. I did a few minutes, and it said my pace was 32 min/mi. So switched back.

Did 1.56 miles this morning. Ginny Mac seemed very tired, so we cut out early and came home. I hope to squeeze in another mile or so later today.

Julie, meet interval training..

So today was the BIG day for me. I decided to get serious about interval training. I walked 1.5 miles first to warm up. Then did an additional 1.5 mi at a 2:2 ratio. The first two times were tough, but it is amazing how the experts are right.. your body really does adjust. :) 3.0 miles total today.

Ok, I know..

So it has been nearly 11 months since my last post. But to be fair, I have been blogging on my other two blogs.

And I have been busy.. ok, enough excuses.

So since I have posted, I trained for another Half Marathon, and completed it in November 2010. Now I am training on my own for the Melbourne Half in February.

I am signing up with Tall Mom, promising a goal of doing 1000 miles in 2011!
I will be checking in weekly to give progress reports!

Thanks for reading.. and keep moving!
