Oh, Feelin' maybe he'll see a little better, set a days, ooh yeah

This has been a LONG week. Just about EVERY night this week I had some sort of meeting or event or fundraiser to go to. For this reason I am especially proud of the fact that I stuck to my plan and I got all my workouts in! Especially since I have been tired and had a tingle in my throat all week... that feeling I was about to get sick...I am hoping the 10 hours of sleep I got last night, and 10 I plan tonight, might fight it off.


Monday: 40 minutes on the Elliptical

Tuesday: 3 miles...4 minute run (5.0) 1 minute walk (4.0)
Mile 1: 12:17
Mile 2: 12: 31
Mile 3: 12:14

Wednesday: 20 minute Elliptical and 15 minute swim

Thursday: 20 minute run...1.6 miles and 30 minutes weights

Saturday: 30 minute run...2.5 miles and 20 minutes Elliptical

The only day that did not go quite as well as planned was Wednesday. I forgot my goggles and Scott was in the pool while I was on the Elliptical so he was kinda goofing off by the time I got to the pool...these two things left me less focused than I usually am.

WW going well. Staying on point with my points this week.

I am VERY proud of my runs this week. On Wednesday I ran 20 minutes straight and today I ran 30 minutes straight. I am learning to push through that mental wall and that little voice that tells me to stop before my body actually does.

I have felt pretty balanced with my meds this week. I did find out that my new head shrinker, that I was just beginning to trust, is moving...we did not really talk about what happens next. I am not sure if I need to find someone else or if she will recommend someone.

In other happy news my parents have offered to fly me to the beach this year. This is an annual trip that I did not get to take last year b/c of the campaign. Scott will not be able to go with me, which makes me sad; but, I know I will have a great time!

Take Care,

Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies
Oh, he don't know, so he chases them away
Someday yet, he'll begin his life again, yeah
Oh, whispering hands, gently lead him away

Great job pushing through the running when you feel like quitting/walking. The mental part is sometimes harder than the physical part.

Great job pushing through the on the run! I find my brain throws up my arms and says uncle long before my body usually does.

Nice job getting everything in! There is something so gratifying about having a full "life" but being able to squeeze the workouts in. It may feel exhausting, but at the end of the week, it feels soooo good to look back and say, "Yeah, I did it!" Way to go!!!

Sounds like your workouts are really coming along well! Way to push through things and run 30 minutes! That's awesome! That's so exciting that your parents are flying you to the beach. Enjoy it - relax!

I am so impressed! Your workouts just scream consistent progress. The mental part is often the most difficult part and you are finding ways to push through it.

Way to go!

Sounds like a good week and yes, sleep is definitley the way to keep healthy. It's why I go to bed early.
