I kept all of the promises I made to myself the week before last - mostly to make sure I make it to class and challenge myself during my first personal training session.
Sunday - 45 minute core class session at our local Fleet Feet with my new trainer Marie. She kicks our butt each week and I am glad to get 2 sessions with her weekly! Made my veggie/fruit goal for the day along with water & FB points.
Monday - 5 at 5AM with some great friends! So grateful I have 2 friends who like to get up early and get it done before work! Its hard to get up after a nice weekend and get out there but they motivate me to get it done! Goals met for fruit/veggies as well as water & FB points.

Wednesday - Day 1 of 5 day weekend! Yahoo! Met up with some friends for a run on the Olentangy Trail. Drawback was it was ice covered so I had to clear ice from the little arc on my heel several times. I also fell twice because I am a klutz! Had planned for at least 8-10 and one of my friends joined me in my neighborhood to finish out our run netting us 9.5 miles on a Wednesday! Met all goals for fruits/veggies, FB, and water!
Thursday - Happy Turkey Day! I was set to pace the Flying Feather 4 miler for a 13 minute mile. The weather was windy and cold so any plans of adding a few miles beforehand went out the window when I got there. Sat in my car as long as I could and headed out to pace. We were near perfect - 51:59 for 4 miles (our goal was 52) and it was fun encouraging people to pass us! I headed home and grabbed the dog for about 1.7 miles after I got home. Had planned more but it was cold & I could tell he was cold too! Happy to do 5.7 miles on Thanksgiving! We tried a new veggie on Thanksgiving called Romanesco Broccoli. Anyone ever have it? It was incredible! Very seasonal from my understanding and I won't be able to get it again until next Fall.
It was a struggle to hit the veggie goals for the day but I did it! Water & FB interaction also were achieved!
Friday - Skipped Black Friday shopping and met up with Marie for our first session! I have a lot of things to work on - squat form, slowing down and doing the workout right but I'll get there. I am still sore today from that workout but that's okay! We need to work on lengthening my hamstrings and flexibility so it'll be a long road but I can do it! Fruit/veggie goals met along with water/FB.
Saturday - College football mania! I don't know about you but I watched more college football on Saturday than I have my whole life! We had it on from noon until like 10PM that night! What a crazy day! I did get out for 10 miles with a friend in the morning before the mania started but my fruit/veggies were non-existent. I tried but completely failed Saturday. I'm working to get back on the bandwagon now but Saturday was bad! Met water/FB goal.
Total for the week was 64.2 which is an increase from the week previous. I'd like to get that up a bit this week so I can catch some of the people in the Endurance Junkie category (still think I need to move) and hope I can! It's looking like an early morning wake ups every day this week to get my workouts in!
My main goal this week is to make my classes and get some yoga/stretching in. My trainer said stretching/form is up to me so I need to make sure I do a good job keeping that up! I know it'll only help me run/walk longer as I grow older!
