I'm so excited!!

I am so excited! Last night was my running room run, without my cousin, the run that I usually get left behind on....and I DIDN'T!!! A pacer that doesn't usually come on Wednesdays came. We had a really small group - only 7 of us - and the run was great. We did 3k - in 21 minutes. I'm quite happy with that.

Another reason I'm happy? I bought myself a Garmin Forerunner 301. It has a heart monitor. It tracks your km's, your heart rate, your course (it has gps), your calories..(I burned 245 by the way!). It is so awesome!!!!! I'm quite excited to wear it on Friday with my run with "J" to see how hard we are working. I can download my workout history to a program on the computer....ooooo....I just love being able to keep track of things....I'm all about keeping stats.

Today I have my weight training with my personal trainer. Timing is perfect, because I am now able to move without muscle pain - time to sore them up again! HA!

Yesterday eating wise....well, I had a big breakfast out with a friend, but didn't eat again till dinner, where I had a shockingly small portion of tortellini. I wasn't really hungry, but didn't want to run on an empty stomach. Turns out I should have - ah, live and learn. I ate too soon before the run, and ....well, it wasn't comfortable for sure.

Here are some pictures of my puppy - the one on the left is the "before", the one on the right is the "after". He had his first puppy cut. So cute. Basically all they did was trim up his face, so he could see. And I think they trimmed his paws.


  1. Glad to hear it was a good run. And the puppy looks adorable!!!!

  2. Glad to hear the run went great, and that you didnt get left behind, that is awesome!

    The Puppy is so cute, what kinda is he again?

  3. Glad to hear the run was great! Sounds like you pushed yourself and that is wonderful!

    Thanks for the advice on setting my goals, it seemed to really strike a cord with me and I think you're totally right.

    Your puppy looks so cute, like a little stuffed animal!!

  4. I am glad you had such a great run! You sound so happy!!! And I love the puppy's new do!!!

  5. Oh I love the Garmin! Those things rock. I should get mine out again. WoooHooo for the run! That is awesome!

    Your dog is very cute!!
