That went pretty well!

Well, It felt pretty amazing being back on old treadmill again! and i'm not as out of shape as previously thought!  I decided to skip a head a few weeks in the couch to 5k program because,  I've been pretty active... well, not active as in running, but more along the lines of not sitting on the couch constantly. So I decided week 4 of the Couch to 5K plan that I am using, would be a good starting point.

Hopefully by skipping a few weeks I won't regret it! as of now, My muscles aren't that sore, but i did notice that my back is pretty sore from all the jolting, and jiggling. HAHA.

well, heres a video to give you some motivation for the day-

Hey everyone! I know its been a REALLY long time since my last post, but I figured that its about time that I get back on the bus! Its a good thing that I have a motivational blog that I can follow... haha, and who better to motivate myself than MYSELF! 

I look back at my old posts and I am amazed at what I use to do!  SO who's with me? lets get back at this,  lose the access weight, and get back to where I was!

Lets do it!

After not running in forever, I decided to go back where I started... a COUCH to 5K program. that way I am not overdoing it,  and i can get back into it slowly!

Heres a link to the program that I am going to use:  Couch to 5K

Second Annual Cinco De Mile-O

Well, I've been horrible at keeping up with my blog! I am the first to admit that I really should be updating this a little more often, or else people will start thinking that I have once again fallen off the running wagon. Well, no worries! I have been running about 3- 4 times a week since my last post, and am proud to say that I have once again completed my Cinco De Mile-O run. For those of you that have no idea what the heck i am talking about, please feel free to take a look at this link:

I am not going to lie and tell everyone that I easily ran the 5 miles today, recently i have only been running anywhere from 2.5- 3.1 so today was really a stretch, and I really wanted to quit at about 3.75, lucky for me, unlike last cinco de mile-o i had my wife with me, and she would have no part in letting me quit, THANK YOU MANDY!!!

A blast from the past

Today I did something that I haven't done in months. I ran 2 miles without stopping! I cannot believe how quickly I am getting back into this. Just yesterday my workout was run 8 walk 5 x 3 and i was struggling. Then today was a 20 minutes straight of running and I had no problem with it. It is amazing what it body is capable of doing when you set your mind to Something.

I'm not sure if I mentioned this in my last post, but I have been running almost 5 days a week and, I am already in week 6 of my program, and I can really tell a difference in how fast my body is able to adapt compared to my last attempt. I feel like by doing something every day I am adjusting quickly, but I am worried that I may be overdoing it. Nothing is hurting me but is still worried that this is going to come back and bite me in the butt later down the line. Or am
I over thinking this one?

Anyone else have a similar experience where you take a while off and are able to work out that much harder and on a more consistent basis? If so did you end up having anything happen as a result?
