Pam – Portland is one of my bucket list places – I’ve never been to the PNW at all, and hear it is amazing. Keep going! Success breeds success

Dave – it’s hard to combine weights and cardio – I find weights always lose when time gets tight.
Sara – Welcome – a lot for you is all that matters, and you’re the one that is doing it. The jump from two to three miles will come soon if you want it to, and then you can drop in conversation “well, after running 5K this morning…”

And, as regular as the sun, Tunnrida, great work.

Pretty boring spinning class today – I was a few minutes late, and considered just running instead, because this instructor is less than engaging, but I want to support the program, so I spun, and did work pretty hard. Then I added 5 crunches to my set.
Stay strong!

Abby

Sara 2 miles is GREAT! Remember most people can't run 200 feet.

Abby sorry that the new spin instructor is so blah. I know you have spoken to management about it, so I guess you just have to find inspiration w/in yourself. Besides, you have lots of other activities at the gym that keep you excited. Actually Portland reminds me a little of Boston - on a smaller scale. PNW is beautiful. Like most of the west coast, you don't have to go very far to be in a completely different environment. Start at the shore, an hour or so later you are in Portland, and keep going and in a couple of hours you are in the Cascade Mts.

No physical exercise this morning. But I did get some manuscript edits done and notes written up from a meeting last week.

Thank you for the positive comments! I seem to be apologising to people when they ask how far I run as my response is "only 2 miles"! But then I forget that a few months ago I was walking/shuffling that.

Target is a 5k fun event booked for June!

Sara, we’ll be rooting for you in the 5K – you might want to go to “Team Fitday” thread, which is all about getting ready for specific events. I completely understand about aplogizing for your length – I have a goal of 366 miles in this year (that’s average of 1 a day), it’s not much, but my husband is fond of pointing out it is probably 362 more than he will do! My first mile was fairly recent, and I still feel accomplished at that point in my route.

Today was a 3.18 run, 32 minutes – nothing impressive but the hills were intense, and the day was amazing, sun was coming up, and a million things in bloom!

Just a short walk/run for 30min around the hotel. It's a nice way to do a little sightseeing and restaurant scoping . Now back to the meeting rooms.

3.25 mile run in 30 minutes - had to go pretty fast so as to meet my year goal, then yoga.

Yoga ended badly, the next class (which is an elder fitness class of some sort) never learned "wait outside", and all came in loudly at the end of youga, the instructor asked them to leave (in the lowest, most yoga instructor voice), and they raised voices and started getting angry it was wierd (and not even after the transition moment). The instructor felt bad, but really, the power of the class was not destroyed, it was stronger than this anger. However, I sent an e-mail to management (I'm getting a reputation) to try to get more space between classes.

Stay strong

Something to be aware of. You only need a very few daily miles to reach a very large portion of your potential.
Example from my own past. I ran track/cross country in high school( grad.1978). I was not able to afford decent running shoes so I was only running 3-4 miles a day for the two years I competed. 2 mile in 10:55, mile in 5:09. Three years later, running in college and covering 70-85 miles a week (10-12 miles/day) brought my mile to 4:32, 2 mile estimated at 9:40 (5K run in college, no 2 mile race).
Really not a whole lot of improvement compared to the investment in time and mileage.
Then look at world class runners. 80-120(or more) miles per week for a second or two(maybe) in the mile.
Never apologize for your running, you're out there doing it and not couch surfing.

I miss my run. I can't believe I said this because I use to said that I can't run and I just can't until 2 years ago I learn to run and I love it. Now I got plantar fasciitis and can't run. I feel very sad.

I hope I can run again sometimes soon.
