Wow, good job! I miss running so much.Thanks for your comment on my blog - I didn't see an address to respond to. Wouldn't a rain barrel give you nice, soft water? Mmmm. Sounds very clever of your husband.
And didn't you say you run about 6 miles a day when you manage to exercise? That'd put you w/i a week of your goal distance... WOO-HOO!
Keep up the good work!
No, Carrie, it seems the new Blogger doesn't automatically send the email address of other Bloggers who choose to disclose it. It's a feature I really miss. Any commentor who would like to get a hold of me personally, will have to refer to my profile page where my email address is provided as a link. *sigh*I was running 6 miles 5 days a week in an effort to reach PG by April 1st Leisel. Most days I still do, although now that I have missed the goal date I am a little more relaxed about the actual mileage each day. I usually run 40 minutes and accomplish nearly 6 miles. Today I bombed and only did a mile and a half before slinking from the gym. My heart just wasn't in it today for some reason.
I just can't imagine going as fast as you on the elliptical. I do about 1/3 your speed if that. Congrats on your distance.Gillian
I didn't originally start out at such a gallop Gillian. I've been working out very regularly, always pushing myself to do my best, for a year at the end of this month. Other than a short warm up of about 3 - 4 minutes I usually run along at about 8.5 to 9 miles per hour (according to the read out) and my heart rate reaches 150 to 160 BPM. I don't do "hills or intervals", I set the machine on "cardio" and it uses my heart rate as a guide for the difficulty level. Heart rate goes up too much? ... the machine backs off the difficulty level for a while. If the heart rate goes below the "150" I set the monitor for then the machine provides more resistance for a while.
