    Training with baby

    So the horrible weather and my little getting sick for a week had me change my mind on starting the 10k training. I finished the 5k training and really surprised myself. I had increased my speed and my body always felt much better after I ran. My niece got to do my last run with me and she is 8. I was surprised she kept up most of the way. I now doing the Brazil Butt Lift workouts indoor and I think that I want to try and run on Sunday's if the weather allows (it's my only rest day in the workout series). Part of me really misses running so I want to keep doing it. I also think I may go backwards if I don't keep it up. How is everyone else doing? I know the weather can really mess things up unless you have a an indoor track you go to.

    When do u start seeing results

    It depends what results you are looking for. I suspect 3 weeks ago you couldn't do week 3 day 2 so there's some big results. If you are looking for weight loss, it's 90% diet. Running helps a bit but you can't outrun your fork. Eating a proper diet will lose the weight. Running will make you better at running. The two together make you a goal achieving winner!! But as for results, you had some successful results the day you stepped out the door, started the app and began to level up your life!

    Halfway there and Haven't Quit Yet!

    Maybe if I really stick to it, I'll spoil myself with a watch for my fiftieth birthday (which is not for a while yet...T.G) Although I have to say that at this point a just stick my phone in my armband and don't even look at it until I am done....

    Jeshi, Basing weight loss or fitness on the scale is really hard. Especially when you mix in strength training as muscle has weight. What many of us do is measure ourselves weekly. I measure my shoulders, neck, chest, waist, biceps, hips and thighs. Go by what the tape measure says more so than the scale. If you go this route, consider buying a MyoTape. They are less than 10 dollars and are way easier to use than a standard measuring tape for this purpose.

    Congrats Ruthie!! I never doubted you would finish!! All those apps are great but maybe if you keep running, you might want a watch one day. So awesome to hit the start button on your wrist and be able to check your pace and distance without digging out your phone

    I can't figure out how to---

    Hi NanaB, I use the app with an iPhone6. The audio commands come through earbuds, be sure to take your phone of the silent mode. Hope this helps!

    Sorry Jeshi I missed a post. Yes I was thorlos and cold nose. My dad gave me his silk hat/running mask. It works great and I agree with Ruthie I just try to keep my head up, my breath steady, and move. Some day I will get as advanced as you! Just keep moving.

    Just finished last run on app. Supposedly, but only supposedly, I can now run 5k. Mapmyrun (long story...) did show 5k at the end of the workout but that was including warmup and cool down. I decided that I would run endomundo and mmr simultaneously today and compare, but I must have had endomondo set on intervals because it kept beeping like crazy... so I shut it off. I will use it next run. I think I will run 30 again next run and then bump it up to 35 and see if I get 5k in that. I will also start doing a dynamic warm up at home instead of walking to warm up, and start tracking as I start running. Hope I will be able to stick with it... I will probably keep posting a while - accountability is everything.

    Jeshi you sound like you feel fitter and healthier. Are you having fun? Is everything your doing helping you? Then that is all that matters. Not some wonky numbers on a scale.

    12/7/15 Monday The left heel felt like it was going to slip this morning when I started, but after I got into the run, I didn't notice any slipping. I feel like my runs are getting more fluid (my body is moving in the correct motion and planes) with each week's run. Today, I did little loops with my hands. On my right foot down, I slightly turned my right shoulder, hip, and hand forward. I brought my hip and shoulder straight back, but my hand did a little drop and then pulled back toward my side. I repeated this on my left side. This felt like a natural stride with my whole body moving as one. (I don't think I could keep both hips pointing forward during the entire run and just swinging my legs forward and back . I can't really tell if I'm getting thinner or not (so many fluctuations throughout the day, week, month that it's hard for me to tell by eye and the scales are wonky (digital and non). I'm just going to keep up my regimen of running 3 x week, 3 x week heavy bag boxing/body weight exercises, adjusting my calorie intake per activity for each day, and get enough water and sleep. That's all I can do. It's a bit strange for me to vary my intake based on my activity. Previously, I wasn't aware of my body's calorie burn patterns and I'd end up eating way too little on weekdays and too much on weekends. I hope adjusting my intake will level out my cognitive function. Due to my schedule, I run in the mornings and strength train in the evenings. I'm going to try to strength train on the same as my runs so that I'll have a full day to recover before I run again. If I run and strength train on alternate days, I'll be sore when I run. Does that make sense? I think my fitbit has pushed me to run at a higher cadence with a bit more lean, speeding up my pace, and working my heart and lungs more (even if my sessions are shorter).

    Exercise and High Blood Pressure

    My husband sometimes would get high blood pressure, and it was usually stress. I 100% say go to your doc, but also try to remove stressors from your life as well. It sounds cliche, but it really works. I really cut down on reading news and social media, cut out caffeine completely, I don't eat foods high in saturated fats, and I try to meditate before bed for 15-20 minutes (I like to listen to rain sounds) and don't look at any screens (tv, phone, etc) after that until morning, and I've noticed a HUGE difference in myself. He also cut out caffeine and fatty foods, and is working to remove negatives from his life as well as exercising, and even in the past few weeks I've noticed a huge difference and he hasn't had any blood pressure issues. Keep working at it though, of course consult with your doctor any time you have worries! Nothing has improved my life (other than my husband! more than exercise; mentally and physically. Good for you for sticking to it!
