My new training regiment (11/08) will be accounted for within my blogs.  Below is what I had tried in the Summer of ’07. ________________________________________________________________________________________________

Below is what I was doing until I found out I was pregnant.  I currently will not be ‘training’ for anything but I will keep exercising during my whole pregnancy.  And then I hope to run the same race next year and I will compare my training then to what I was doing now.

I have a 12 week program that I’m using to get ready for a race on Sept. 29, it’s a 5k. I’ll update this daily. The original schedule came from an article titled ‘How To Run A 5k In 3 Months If You’ve Never Run Before’. I modified some of it after talking with coaches, trainers and a sports Dr. Here’s how I’m doing it.

    Great to hear about your training regime. Have to say you are doing a lot of walking. I think a bit more running might be a good course of action.

    Oh I wish I could!! I’m slowly building my stamina. I try to run more but with the heat and humidity over here it’s been tough. But I am building my distance, slowly but surely.


  3. Ok,
    I’m happy to see you came by for a visit. I’m glad to see you’re healthy and back at it… albeit with a larger family.

    So, is there some running in your future again? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Thanks for checking in. I am thinking about it. Tomorrow I’ll be 13 weeks ‘post-op’ (I had a c-section) so I think I’m healed up. Now I just have to make the time and start. I have taken the occasional walks with the baby, maybe 2 to 3 times a week right now. And now I have an Ipod so I’m more equipped now. I just have to get my motivation back.
