Happy Monday { Updated}

Chris congrats on the half!!! What a great time!!! I hope you learn how your body is going to do. I want to give a really big shout out to Jonathan. He did a little over 5 miles!!!!! That is awesome!!! Keep it up!!! And you know what it doesn't matter who wins the mileage challenge, it is still a win win for everyone.

Well I am headed out to the gym and I am going to get on the dread mill and just run, run till I can not run any more.Well I did this out side and did the front half of the street with 1.43 runs, and the back half into the wind at one minute runs and did the 2.0 miles in 28 minutes!! Shaved off 2 min!! It is one of my trainers assignments. Then when I have to walk write the time down. Then I will be doing my intervals after that. Here is what I have been working on.
1. 5 minute warm up at 3.2,incline 5.0 : did this with no problem
2. 10 minutes light jog,incline 0 : ran the entire time .78
3.3 minutes light jog, incline 4,at same pace: 4.5 and one 30 second break
4.3 minutes light jog, incline 6: 4.3 with one 30 second break,.20
5. 3 minutes light jog,incline 8,slow pace a little: 3.9, one 45 second break, .19
6.10 minute sprints, as fast as you can, 30 seconds at a time,incline 8: 4 @ 4.3, and 5 @ 3.9, missed one due to my daughter falling off the TM
7.10 minute light jog,incline 0:7 min. 3.4, 3 min. 4.5
bicycle crunches,30 x 3
push ups 15 x 3

It is not easy ,but I can do it and it doesn't hurt so bad.
There is some Team Voice news that will be announced on AATM. SO stay tuned and listen to the show.

I rode my bike last night and did a fast 6 miles. We did it in 30 minutes. Had to fast, so we wouldn't get caught in a thunder storm.
It has been raining here everyday. Thunder storms, high winds. And it forces me in doors for all my exercise. :(

Saturday was a sad day for the NHRA. They lost a great driver.

I will update later! And post the name of the driver.I do not want to spell it wrong.

It's so interesting seeing what Isabeau has you doing! And you know, there is still six months left. I really think you'll be alternating running and walking in the Half by the time Isabeau's done with you!

Rae you are doing great. Keep moving forward.

Back after a long period of not being able to read blogs - so just catching up on all your progress and you're doing great!!
Like Deb, I'm enjoying finding out what Isabeau is having you do - it's really interesting, and also gives ideas as to what I can do in my training...
Keep up the fantastic work! Once again, sorry for not being around so much.

Keep up the great work! Great job on the 2 mile run as well. You better be careful....You're starting to sound like a runner...;-) The breathing, comfort and distace comes with time I've learned. Just like Axel said, "all we need is just a little patience" LOL ...that, and an ice pack for the shins! Ha!

Keep it up Rae. It seems that Jon is not the only one finding a new stride lately. Thanks for posting your details.

Good job on the inclines.

Pride on 3.
