Where has the time gone??? We have another week marked off the calendars. Another week closer to FitBloggin’11.
October PEOPLE!! It is OCTOBER!!
September flew by way too fast. I have already been back in school for one month. I love my classes and I they are keeping me very busy. I am already working on mid-marking period progress reports. Normally, being this busy would be just another excuse to not run. Heck, I had already blew most of the training I was supposed to do this summer. While September’s training was far from perfect, it was far better than August. AND, I learned a lot this month. (If you want to know more about all my learning this month you will have to check out my blog – only because I do not want to take up this whole post with my ramblings. Ya’ll know I could ramble on for days at a time and I really need to let Mandy have her say too! )
Um…Yeah you do!
So, how was your week guys? Mine was pretty fantastic. Why? Because you all motivated me! I’m not a runner by any stretch of the imagination, but your incredible goals made me want to push myself. So….I did it! Instead of walking my normal 20 minute mile, I did a walk/run and pushed myself to a 15 minute mile! What??!! I almost collapsed on the track, y’all…but I made it! And yesterday, I whittled it down to 14:37. Something is in this Fitbloggin’ water. And I like it!
What about you Jen?
This week was my BEST training week so far! I only have two weeks until my first half marathon so it really is better late than never! I ran every interval on my short runs this week. My short runs were two 5-milers and a 3-miler. Sunday’s 9-miler was more of a walk but since I am fighting off a nasty cold (daughter & husband have full-blown bronchitis) I am calling this a win! I also did one yoga workout and while I would have liked a second yoga day I am calling this a win. I drank a ton of water and concentrated on making good for me food choices.
Laying it out like that, I realize this was an AWESOME week! I hit 95% (not a math person, I teach English, so the % is my own) of my goals!!
I NEEDED a week like this one. Thanks for sharing it with me!!
Psssst…tell them the news, Jen!
We have some exciting news today!!
One of the main focuses of Fit4Fitblogging (F4FB) is to get fit by setting goals. I think Subway got wind of our awesomeness!! Today, October 4th, Subway is launching a way cool program called Commit to Fit. Commit to Fit is simply a opportunity for you to pick a healthy goal and work towards it – with the chance to win some pretty neat stuff along the way.. Because Mandy and I believe the mission of Commit To Fit is on par with our F4FB we thought you would like to commit with us!
We will continue to tell you all about our commitment to staying/getting/being fit and we will continue to encourage you to make your own commitments. And since Subway is hosting an awesome new program they have decided we should giveaway some pretty cool prizes to you who Commit to Fit. So that means you have a chance to win prizes here on Fitbloggin’, and prizes over at Subway too!
Over the next few weeks you will have to check out our F4FB updates because there are some awesome giveaways coming your way. I am going to leave you in suspense about the actual prizes but let’s just say, I am a wee bit jealous of what you can win!
So what do you think?!? Are you IN?!?
Um, YEAH they are!
My commitment this week is to see if I can get my mile time down a bit more. And to also not die on the track. Jen is going to keep on her training, while trying to dodge her family’s germs.
What are your commitments and goals for this week?
