Baby Steps....

Saturday, April 30, 2011

So - I'm back at it - ever so slowly.

After I typed my blog on Tuesday - I put on the runners, and off I went...remembering to not just run until I dropped, but use my new found Galloway Method love.

I ran intervals....some 4 minute then 1 walk, some 3 minute 1 walk....and right in the middle somewhere I walked for 2 minutes....but in the end I moved myself for 38 minutes and burned just about 400 calories...Yeah me....

My old habits krept back in for the next three days - but today - I decided that while my little guy was at lacrosse practice, instead of driving home - puttering around the house and then going to pick him up - I was going to run - so I put on the gear, packed him into the car and went....it felt great.....

I still did my intervals - although I started with 5/1 and did 3 of those. I ran 3.6 miles in 38 minutes....slow for my - but I did it....

Boy am I glad I did - I feel good....

Still haven't tackled the whole eating thing --- just going to keep moving. In the past the eating falls into place after I start moving more....keep your fingers crossed.

My boys are keeping me hopping - I don't have to travel as far as with hockey - but boy is the schedule crazy....baseball and lacrosse......school and projects.....no rest for the wicked.
