My Knitting List

Fitness Friday - 7/15

I got a lot of walking and workouts in this past week.  On Saturday I did a 2-mile run/walk and finished in 24:33 which I was very happy with.  Ended up jogging quite a bit the last mile. 

Now I'm "training" for a 4-mile run/walk that's in a month.  I've been trying to jog for a count of 25, then walk for a count of 50 and then repeat.  Eventually I hope to jog longer, but it'll take time.

So for the 100-mile challenge, I've logged 24 miles in the first two weeks! 

For my "virtual walk" here is my progress:

~ Miles Walked in 2011: 135.19 miles
~ Miles Left to My "Virtual" Destination: 147.55 miles

I just wanted to day that I missed your blog the past several months. I'm glad that you are back. I'm a quilter who has gotten back into jogging the past couple of years. Your post inspired me, and today I did two miles on the treadmill. I'm hoping the surgeon who put my broken ankle back together three months ago will be as impressed with that as I was, and release me at tomorrow's appointment. Thanks so much for the inspiration. I think we could be great slogging buddies (slog is the contraction of slow+jog)--my pace is 12 minute miles, and my regular race/pace buddy here is 82 years old. I got to where I could keep up with him except for his "stage coach finish" and then he leaves me in the dust!
