Running Accomplishments:

Maybe someday I'll have something noteworthy to post in this section. I have only completed three 5ks and a 5 miler; all at an average pace somewhere in the 9:00-9:30min/mile range

Painter's Half 2010 - 2:03:54 

Short-Term Running Goals:

Painter's Half Marathon - would like to keep an average pace of 9:00min/mile. 

Painter's Half - Went over my goal and finished in 2:03:54 :( It was my first half though.  I had a great time and learned what I need to work on.  

Salt Lake Half Marathon - would like to finish in under 2 hours. 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Would like to complete a full marathon in the fall of 2010 and finally conquer the Herriman Hill...to be honest, there are several hills in Herriman I'd love to conquer, but that one for sure!

Personal:

I am a stay-at-home mother, married and have two young boys.

I finally have something to post today! It's not very exciting, but it's something!

2.0 TM miles.  I felt my knee start to tighten after a 1/4 mile! Ahhh!  I slowed my pace down from 10:00min/mile to 10:15min/mile.  That didn't seem to help so I walked a 1/4 mile and jogged a 1/4 mile until I reached 2 miles.  So now I'm icing and stretching.  I think I'm going to work more on doing more leg strengthening exercises and aerobics videos this week and try to run again on Saturday to see my IT band is any better.  Any other advice would be greatly appreciated!

Since my IT band continues to not cooperate, I have decided to try another round of P90X.  After 30 days, I'm going to try running again.  Hopefully by icing, stretching, and strength training, I will be able to run pain free again! 

"Shoulders & Arms" and "Ab Ripper X" workouts.  My 3 year old was so funny and stood there making sure I completed all my reps.  He counted all the way to ten and then said, "eleventeen." Pretty sure I didn't teach him THAT number!

Up bright and early at 5:30 a.m. Instead of P90X today, I used a Jillian Michaels DVD I had to help strengthen my hip, glutes, and legs.  I feel stronger already!  It felt so good to sweat!

I'm excited for Plyometrics tomorrow!

I was supposed to do P90X Plyometrics this morning, but I couldn't find the DVD.  My landlord and I share the P90X dvds and since it was 5:30 in the morning, I'm sure she wouldn't appreciate me waking her up to ask her.  So I did P90X "Chest & Shoulders" and "Ab Ripper X" workouts instead. I really feel like the ab ripper exercises are helping to strengthen my hip muscles as well, so hopefully doing that 3 times per week will help my IT band issues. 

I later found out that the Plyometics DVD was in my landlords broken DVD player that we can't figure out how to open.  I have a kind of love-hate relationship with Plyo so I'm kind of happy/sad I don't have access to it right now.  

I feel a lot better doing some sort of exercise, even though I'm not running but I MISS RUNNING SO BADLY! I promise I push myself as hard as I possible while lifting weights but I really miss dripping in sweat while running.  My friend has a buddy pass to Lifetime she wants to give me, so maybe I can get a spin class or two in to help maintain my sanity.  I may even go over to the gym in Herriman to see if they'll give me a trial pass or something.

I have the same cold my kids had last week and woke up in the middle of the night with a fever. So rather than get up early and get my workout in, I took my kids on a walk in the double stroller for about 1.5 miles around our hilly neighborhood this afternoon.  Pushing a 35 pound kid and a 25 pound baby up a hill is a great workout! I still feel pretty crummy today, so I'm going to try to get a nap in while my kids are napping. Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow!

Oh, and we got the Plyo DVD out, so it looks like I'll be making up that workout later this week too. :)
