The Gym is Good

I made it to the gym three days this week. Now I know that's not heart stopping news or anything but as a stay at home mom to two boys I think I did well. I also played tennis one night, walked another and have plans for tennis or a walk again tonight. I like the gym, it feels good to get all sweaty and gross and feel like I accomplished something. I can do 20 minutes on the elliptical which works out to about 3.5 miles or so. I alternate my speed, per my trainers instruction, so sometimes I am really going for it and other's chugging along moderately. This week I also started in on the treadmill. I didn't think I would because I do still go for walks in the neighborhood but I'm glad I did. It's different walking on a treadmill and I get a better pace and have to keep it up or fall off, lol. Now that I am getting comfortable on a treadmill again I want to start jogging for chunks of time. My overall goal is really to be able to run a 5K. There is a runner trapped in this body and it's dying to get out!!

Speaking of running, Sarah, a fellow lap band blogger is training for her first 5K! She's so inspisring to me and I hate, hate, hate that she is down on herself right now. If you have time head on over and encourage her to keep running!!!
