Weekly Recap - Losing It

Good Friday Morning Blog Hogs!  Thank god it's finally here!  It's taken long enough!  This is one of those Fridays that I have to work.  :(  Boo.  Oh well, I'll get over it. 

Today's recap is about me.  lol.  Nice, I know.  No, but really, it's about how my weight loss exercise goals have been going.  So... here we go.

Remember in March when I posted this about trying to go to the gym for 15 out of 30 days.  Complete fail.  I think I went once!  I think it has to do with a funk I seem to get into come those winter months!  But since spring has barely sprung, I've actually gotten a lot better. 

No, not at going to the gym, but at running outside... which is where I'd prefer to do it. 

Week 1 -
Monday Run - 2 miles
Wednesday Run- 1.5 miles
Saturday Run - 1.5 miles
Total Week 1 - 5 miles

Week 2 -
Monday Run - 2 miles
Thursday Run - 2 miles
Saturday Run - 2 Miles
Week 2 total - 6 miles

Week 3 (this week)
Monday Run - 3 miles
Thursday Run - 2 miles
Friday run - Questionable (supposed to rain)
Saturday run - maybe while we are at home
Sunday run - maybe...
Week 3 total - TBD

I've been going to run after skating on the Monon sometimes on Mondays or Tuesdays.  I love the Monon in Carmel.  It's always busy, there are all kinds of people you see, all kinds of dogs too!  It's just so active and I think that it makes me try harder.  When I can't do that, I run in our addition.  Not as much incentive or drive there.  Oh well, at least I have my paths mapped out. 

New goal:  To do the Fort 4 Fitness with some other members of my family!  It's a half marathon in our hometown of Fort Wayne, IN.  I've never done anything like this but since it's in September I'm sure that I can handle being prepared by then!  I'm hoping to increase by 1 mile each week. So this week's goal was 3 miles/3x a week, but it might have to be repeated next week.  Then go to 4 miles/3x a week and so on.  I thin that will work.  I can increase how I like... we'll see what happens.  I'm just glad to be out and moving again.
