Always wear black pants when runnin-it's slimming

Went for a 5 mile run yesterday with Angie and Audrey. Ran on the bike trail until we couldn't stand it anymore. Alot of it had large puddles and some ice. About halfway through, we decided run on the road. I feel really behind in my training. Anytime we stopped to walk it was because I asked to. I still have a long way to go. It did help to actually get outside. hopefully the warmer weather will stick around for a while. wishful thinking, i know.
Before we started running we noticed that we all were wearing black pants...........they are slimming :)

Two miles on the hamster wheel.

yesterday I just did a quick two miles on the treadmill. Very Boring. Today it is finally nice enough out to run outside. Me and a couple of friends are planning a "long" run later this afternoon. We'll see how that goes......

58 minutes and 58 seconds

that's how long it takes this turtle to run 4 miles on a treadmill.......And it wasn't pretty! Me and my friend, Angie, took a trip to Endurance House in madison to get our free 1/2 marathon vouchers with purchase of NEW shoes today. I guess now I am committed...yikes! At least I got new shoes :)

Me and running don't always get along.....

I don't think my treadmill is very accurate. I ran 3 miles in 50 minutes.....I'm pretty sure I can do it faster than that but whatever. The first mile-not that good, second mile felt awesome, third mile- mind over matter....... It's a far cry from a 1/2 marathon. Tomorrow i'm taking off to do some things around the house. jacob and taylor both working on stenciling projects in their rooms I want to help them with. I'll try to post pics when they are done....

Good thing I wasn't wearing corderoy

30 minutes on the treadmill, again. I could have gone farther, but my thighs were chaffed. Mental note- do not run in the purple shorts EVER again......unless my thighs get smaller :) Tomorrow rest and Saturday a long run. I may have to grease up with something for that one.

Any suggestions for fast running music? I find myself skipping past the majority of jeff's country and slow songs. I'm probably skipping past songs more than actually listening to music.

baby got back

Ran on treadmill for 35 min. without stopping. It actually felt pretty good. I have found if I throw my T shirt over the time/milege thing and just listen to my music It goes by faster. Can't wait for the snow to go away so I can run outside. I'm not a winter person.............Why am I in wisconsin again?
