Lazy Today

No post yesterday,or gym by the time I got home I was just exhausted.Work was so busy,plus having a trainee.Let me say she is just going to make a very good nurse.

I want to say thank you to everyone.I appreciate it .:)
I was up at 9Am,but i just couldn't get out of bed today till 11:30a. It's sunny out but it is also thundering and lightening out.GO figure.

I can do most of all my classes on line.The reading ,math,and other assignments.But the actual class is Mon.-Fri. 7:30-3:15p. That's a problem. I have a year to figure it out.I work 3 days at 12 hours shifts.I don't think I can cut back to part time and work 2 days. I will have to ask the Boss about that.The class for this fall is already full. If I was able to get in to the class this year I would not be able to do the tower of terror race.:( I hope it will not get in the way of the 09 1/2 M.That would just not set well with me at all. :( I will find out as time get closer.

Meals yesterday:
Smoothie
B: cereal flax flakes fat free milk
L: bbq chicken breast and sweet potato,ice tea
D: chicken sausage,veggie pasta,and peas,ice tea
S: ice pop
lots of h2o

Training: NONE

Meals today: {Fill in later}
B: none
L: nothing
D:potatoes, loaded with cheese,and veggie chili beans
S: homemade brownie,with a 1/2 scoop of ice cream{yummy}
Training: {filled}
Well we ran tonight and we progressed to #3.Two runs at 90 seconds,two walks at 90 seconds,two runs at 3 minutes and to walks at 3 minutes.That is only 26 minutes,so I did my speed walking to a full 30 minutes,speed at 3.6-3.7 { got faster} so miles tonight for me are 1.91.with the cool down 2.02.calories 293.E did speed 7.5,30 minutes,2.43 miles,calories 553.

Training today will be running.Still week #2. I am almost up to a full 2 miles.That's not counting the warm up or cool down.In 30 minutes. And the best part is that I am still injury free!!!!

I thought of my sign off line back at the beginning when I first started in October 06. E is my inspiration.He has supported me since then and he trains with me.And that is what makes it fun.I have been told from people in my past that told me that I couldn't do this.So I train hard.I plan on showing them all when I have the medal in my hand from finishing the TOT 13k and a picture at the finish line.I want to stay injury free, I tore a muscle back in April,slipped and fell in October and had knee surgery.My Ortho.doctor doesn't really want me running,speed walking as long as I can keep pace.Well I just have to do this.And it is at one of my favorite places I love to be at with my family.
Sooooo........

Train hard,have fun,stay injury free!!!!

Hi Rae!

The studying sounds like so much work. I really admire you for doing it. It would be awful if you had to chose between the classes or the race. I hope it doesn't happen though (but I also hope you get your classes).

BTW E, good job on the inspiration thing. [2 thumbs up]
