What a busy day with much accomplished! I ran a 6 mile long run and was very consistent with my pacing. That felt great and the morning was gorgeous on the bike path along the Mississippi River. I enjoyed every bit of it. I then went home and ate my recovery bar, did my SparkPeople 28 day Day One video followed by my running ST.

Oh and I forgot to mention that I lost another pound! The scale is moving and I am doing it the hard but honest way. I am eating very healthy and getting off the couch and MOVING! I am totally embracing non-running fitness and I am still amazed with that. This may turn into a set habit yet much like running did. Wow, that would be so awesome!

Jim is starting week 3 of c25k and he gets frustrated so easily. The man has no patience and ask anyone in our family. They would agree. I am going to run with him sometime this week to check his runnng form and speed. I have a feeling he needs some serious coaching. That would be me LOL. I am also trying to get him to set up his SPage so he can get hooked up with a C25K Spark team so he can ask questions. I never did the c25k program so I can't help him there. He wants to run the Royal Family 5k the day before my Princess HM at Disney World. We will get him there.

When I was getting groceries, I came across two very odd fruits and purchased a few of them to try. The first is a pummelo that is the size of a small child's head and the second is a prickly pear. I tried the prickly pear and it was very interesting. Its blood red inside and very sweet. I shall pick up a few more if there are any left in the produce section. That is how I discovered star fruit last year and I grab them when available.

Other than giving the dog an unplanned bath, I got everything on my todo list done. Like I mentioned, I have been busy all weekend and ready to get back to work so I can rest. LOL

That is it for this evening so until tomorrow...

Toodles!

    What is it about men and patience? Maybe it gets handed out in the same line as asking for directions.

    However, hand some of them a fishing pole and ... I guess patience is in the eye of the beholder.

    C25K isn't too difficult to break down - it is a progression of Galloway increasing running and decreasing walking.

    Um, yeah, and let me tell ya, the Apple didn't fall far from the Patience Tree! emoticon And eveytime I call him on it, or give him 'that look' he says "What? Its not MY fault! I have my Father's patience!" Excuses, excuses... LOL
