The Great Outdoors

I've been working out almost 6-7 days a week now. Angry Husband says that I need to vary my routine. I usually go on the treadmill in our garage or I go to my local 24 Hour Fitness. I'm scheduled to do about 4 more 5K runs this year, so I'm kinda in training.

AH says that my body is not conditioned to the hard surfaces of sidewalks and asphalt. This is why I suck when I'm running my 5K's. So I took it to the great outdoors this morning.

I strapped on my water bottle holder, along with my cellphone. I then placed my lovely ipod on and went on my way.

I did 80 minutes of walking/running outside this morning. I was able to check out all the neighborhoods. I saw tons of people walking their dogs. People had babies in strollers walking too.

I think I might have to do this more often. Although my allergies are killing me right now!!

Oh, and the picture above is a photo taken of the lake in my homeowner's association. I walked all around this bridge and lake.


  1. Hi, I just found your blog via Ashley's Closet and can I say that you are extremely inspirational!?! You make me want to kick my butt into gear! 5k!?! Not THAT is commendable!!

  2. You go girl! I'm doing my first 5K of the season on Sunday.

    I find that running outdoors is sooo much different than a treadmill! (I prefer the outdoors!)


Thank You for taking the time to comment on my blog. I really appreciate it. At least I know that someone in my life actually agrees with me.
