If we are going to have a forum like this, we might as well have one of these and keep track of what we're doing.
In about an hour, I'll be going out for my long run of the week. The course is about 7.75 miles.
I'll try to drop by later to tell you how it went. Anyone else out there working out today?

1:15 min spin. First workout in 3 days because I've been sick so this is my test to see how I'm recovering. Ug, I hate being sick.
Was supposed to do 2:30 run and 1:00 spin. Forget that not today!
No run today, planned rest day. Here's my run report from yesterday. Let's just say I had a wee bit too much to drink Friday night:
I finally got out and ran. I was putting it off, putting it off and almost said the hell with it and was going to run tomorrow. Started watching King Kong and got too comfy and napped for about 10 minutes. Then I started getting hungry again and was going to just eat and bag the run. Got up, started cooking and somehow willed myself to put my running sh!t on and go. I even brought music with me just for added umph cuz I knew it was going to be a long, lonely, gray, hard run.
It was a hungover, tough 13 miles in 2:00:37 (9:17/mile). Slow, but it didn't help that the trail and sidewalks were snowy and icy. Nigh broke my ***, and a few other things with about 2.5 miles left to go slipping on some ice. The weather wasn't too bad, about 35*F. No gloves and just a long-sleeve tech-t and a cotton t-shirt. And of course the BSOD.
Didn't take any water with me. Weighed 214 before the run and was 209.5 after.
Spin class at the gym today. It was supposed to be a 13 mile run today, but with wind chills at 12 below, I opted for some cross training.
It will be nice when the warm weather returns.
I was going to run last night but the Church(indoor track) was closed so I went this morning 25\ W 16 G 26 MPH but I did it. Did I mention the wind gust?

Today was the nicest day weather-wise all week, about 30 degrees. I did about 5 1/2 miles before church before this morning, which beats running laps on an indoor track at the Y on those super cold, wind-chill days. My total for the week was 28.5.
Got in 9 miles this morning for my longest long run yet. A balmy 71 deg (todays high I believe). Completed 26 miles for the week which is my highest week yet.
My scheduled 6 miler turned into a 4 miler after a night of a few cocktails, and less than 4 hours of sleep, and a birthday party of 4-5 year olds later in the day. But had a good run anyways. My legs were still sore from my HR testing I did yesterday on the bike.
Tomorrow is W1D3 of C25K. I did a number on my littlest toes (somwhow got them caught in the jets of my tub), so I really hope I'm okay to run tomorrow. It's just two toes, right?
This afternoon was a recovery run logging 2.7 miles in just under 30 minutes. Yesterday was my long run. I covered 5 miles in just under 1 hour.
I have been running since July 06. I am 6'3 225 lbs. I am very happy about the A/C section. Happy running! Rugby1
Rest day for me today. Did 3 yesterday in the bitter cold. Still trying to decide between a 10k and HM, but think I will throw in a 5k race next month...
Too cold for the usual 4:30 a.m. run, so I went to the park after work for 6 easy miles. The temp was 22 degrees, there was just a little bit of wind and then about halfway through, it started to snow heavily.
There's something about running in a snowstorm that is so serene and beautiful. There might have been 4 other runners in the park, each and every one enjoying the snowfall. When I left, there was probably half an inch on the ground. It is still coming down.
C25K Week1Day3 finished today! Go me!
I can't wait to run outside...but it's so cold! And, as a brand-newbie, I don't have anything that's not bulky to keep me warm. And I don't detest the treadmill yet...
