Hey I'm just trying to catch up.

So while it's nice to be able to put on pants I've not for a while... I still realize that I've got a ways to go until I'm at the weight I want to be. I don't quite have the stamina I'd like to have yet either.

For the first time, I worked out while traveling. While I was gone I went for a mile swim and hit the gym for 45 minutes.

To throw in my $0.02 worth... I run. Took off most of 2011 from running; averaged less than 60 miles per month when I was at 55 miles per week in the fall of 2010. Put on about 18 "happy pounds" with my GF in the last 16 months as well, which was necessitating some wardrobe adjustments.

But I feel like I'm turning my overloaded ship around... Starting in April, I've ramped up my weekly mileage from < 12 miles per week up to 45 last week. Two weeks ago, I figured out that my usual breakfast was costing me 1100 calories a day. That was fine when I was running 55 miles a week, but when my running died off, it explained the weight gain. I've been eating pretty healthy other than that. So I've readjusted that little glitch, and I'm down 7 pounds since May 1. Hoping to reach my "happy running weight window" in the first week in June (165 +/- 5 pounds), as well as plateau my mileage at 50 to 55 miles a week, so I can start putting in my quality workouts.

My goals... Set some more personal bests this fall. So far, my short race performances are coming along ok (fastest 5k was 21:20, did a race in early May @22:06), but my longer race endurance will take more time. Half marathons have been my favorite distance, and I'd like to hit somewhere close to 1:35, which was my goal for the 2010 Las Vegas HM.

I was in the best shape of my life in the fall of 2010, and then the wheels fell off my bus. Between getting injured in Sept and then ending my marriage in Dec, staying in shape fell off my radar screen. Then I started seeing my GF in the winter of 2011, and staying in shape wasn't a priority still. But I'm working hard at prioritizing my time, and it seems to be working ok for now. Ideally, I'll run about 10 hours a week. That works out to a single long run of about 2.5 hours, a medium run of 1.5 to 1.75 hours, and then 4 shorter runs of an hour apiece.

Anyway, sorry for the rambling! . Running is something I was very passionate about, and I'm getting that back!

Awesome, hope to hear from you more often on here. Sounds like you've got your life settled again, so yeah definitely time to take better care of yourself and do what you love. I'll bet you GF will like the results too.

Bike 20 mins, 236 cal, 5.36 miles
Speed walk around neighborhood for 35 minutes (dog loved it! )

Rows (back) 5x8
Cable pull down (back) 4x8
Ab crunches
Forearm 6 sets

So I think there's a exercise bike at the gym that's just ratcheted up a bit too tightly (difficulty wise).

Last week I was gassed one day, well again today was on this bike I normally don't get on and sure enough I could see my heart rate climb higher than it should have for where I was in my bike run.

Thanks! Got in a 10k run this morning before work. Love the feeling of accomplishing something like that before the day really starts! And knowing I won't be pressed for time in the evening, trying to squeeze it in.

A lazy boozy long weekend for me; but so what, for the most part I am still on track except for those 2 days (yesterday I bahaved). Raining here today, so maybe hit the work gym for a 30 minute session. Am already feeling much better.

Oh. And I joined weight watchers for the first time, figured I'd give it a try.

Haven't had much time or opportunity to get to the gym lately, plus I've had a very very hectic month, plus, I'm pretty darned depressed about stbxh and the failure of our marriage (even though it's been a while, it's hit me again out of nowhere), but I'm sticking to my diet plan mostly and exercising a little at a time. So far during the month of May, I've run/walked about 90 miles. My goal is 125 miles by the end of May. Maybe I'll have time to get back to the gym for more intensity next month. That's me, checking in.
