Never just an ordinary girl

So...I stuck to my guns!

Saturday I went to the gym and ran on the treadmill! I ran 3 miles in 40 minutes. I did a 2 minute run followed by a 3 minute walk. I did run the last 5 minutes solid in order to get the 3 miles in! My knees did pretty well! I wore my old brace on my left knee and my new one on my right and that worked out OK!

Today I planned on going to a Pilates/yoga blend class at the gym. However, I THOUGHT the class started at 2:30 and it started at 2:00. Because I wore my Crocs I could not do anything else so I headed back home. At home I did my 50 minute Yoga Now video. Then I took Koz on a walk to wear him out b/c the first 10 minutes of my yoga (the core strength part) he kept coming over and dropping toys on my head!

As I mentioned before my brother in law signed up for the 5k run at the Chickamauga Chase and on Friday I officially signed up too. After three good runs I decided that I am going to become a 5K specialist. So, I started looking at other races coming up. I found that there is a memorial race in honor of my beloved Dr. Gregory! The Bill Gregory Healthcare Classic is the weekend AFTER the Chick Chase BUT I feel very strongly that this is something that I really need to do! So, I am signed up for TWO 5Ks in April!

Meanwhile in the world of Molly:

The Vols game was terrible! They played awful! Oh well. On the same front my picks this year are TERRIBLE! You win some you loose some, right!

Friday night we hung out at the house with a friend, watched more bball and relaxed!

Saturday morning I went and watched Tommy's soccer game. (Keeping in mind he is 3) he had a little trouble sharing the ball. I am sure it is something that he will work through! I had a couple of hours to kill before I COACHED (whatever that means) Kate's soccer game so Momma and I went to the mall. Got my summer scent, Coconut Lime Verbena (love Warm Vanilla Sugar in the winter!) at Bath and Body Works and a CUTE shirt at the GAP! Kate's soccer game was funny...the other coach was trying to teach the 3 year old to dribble and I just could not stop laughing the entire time!

Today has been at Grace, workout, laundry and basketball!

So, in the interest of continuing t keep myself responsible here is the plan for this week:

Monday morning: 30 minutes Elliptical and 15 minutes weights
Tuesday morning: 40 minute run...2 minute run and three minute walk
Wednesday morning: 30 minute Elliptical and 15 minutes weights
Thursday morning: 40 minute run...3 minute run and two minute walk

That someone gave her when she stayed
I didn't think that she returned it

Time expands and then contracts

Good for you for signing up for the 5k's! I did send the other brace by the way... so sorry that it's not there yet! :) It'll get there this week. I promise I didn't forget! I loved the shirt you got from the Gap - too cute! And I giggled when you talked about the kids soccer games. I played at the age of 4 and remember my mom and dad screaming at us to not pick the dandelions! :) Gotta love them at that age!

Great work last week with the fitness and keep it up! :)

Good job on the run and signing up for the races. That will help you motivate to keep up the workouts.

Ah yes...doing yoga at home (or just trying to stretch after a run) with dogs around is tough. I haven't had the toys on my head thing, but it's amazing how much they want to give you kisses when you are not in a position to protect yourself!!

Yay for you! You got 3 miles on the treadmill. That's awesome.

And I'm glad that you've signed up for some 5Ks. YOU CAN DO IT!!!
