Happy March! (Read 469 times)

Big Chicken!

    Hi everyone!! Just wanted to check in and see how you're all doing. I have been ridiculously busy here. I am definitely cutting back on things I volunteer for starting in April. I can't keep up! Probably my best project has been coaching Couch 2 5K. We just started last week. I have a group of ladies of varying fitness levels, from fairly fit to obese. Proudest moment: The most obese lady ran each of her 60 second intervals on Friday, no extra walking! And she thought she was only running 30 seconds!!! I was so happy for her! She was so surprised to hear how long she was running. So I train C25K MWF, run my regular training runs those days plus Thursday AND do my long run wither Saturday or Sunday. I need to cut out at least one training run I think. I am a bit overwhelmed and I think I may get injured. We just got a rowing machine at the gym so maybe I'll do that 2x a week. 59 days till Disney and 61 days till the Minnie Marathon!!!

      Hi Kris, Way to go on the coaching! That's great that your helping others start a running program. Who knows maybe one of them will follow their mentors lead and do a marathon. Smile
        Kris, that sounds awesome. Man, you're keeping busy! Today is 7 months without a cigarette. And Thursday is my 26th bday. Yeehaw!

            Great job, Kris! I loved to hear about helping other people run. Good for you. And Obie, good luck on the non-smoking and congrats on 7 months. Also, happy early birthday. My attendance here has been spotty at best, so if I'm not here on Thursday here's some wishes. What are your plans?

              My mom is coming to visit me in my natural habitat for the first time in over two years. She's going to cook a big birthday dinner for me and a few friends. Then relax! Thanks for the bday wishes.
