I'm on my like 5th or 6th orthopedic injury since April! I started back too early a few times and lost ground. I can't wait to run again. (some day) I'm very glad I started lifting weights rather then wait around, as I've made good progress with my upper body in the last 11 weeks. Now I need to incorporate cardio some how.

You lost count? That's pretty hardcore. Do you think cardio and especially running is like heroin, in that you get addicted and want to start back again as soon as you can even if its bad for you. I think so.

I took 2 ibus before workout yesterday, which seemed like enough, but I don't know. Accidentally brought the wrong shoes to the gym, and when it came time for the treadmill they weren't very helpful. They're cute, but they're really old. It doesn't help that when I pack my stuff for the day in the morning, its kinda dark and all my gear looks pretty much the same! after the elliptical i ran 9 mins on the treadmill, which was fine cardio-wise but the toes on my strong leg went numb cuz of the old shoes. IF IT AIN'T ONE THING ITS ANOTHER. I still rock though!

Food yesterday:
2 tsp miso
coffee n soy
1 cup jicama
1 cucumber
3 rice cakes
1 zucchini 1 tomato 1 veg sausage
10 baby carrots
coffee n soy
WORKOUT
a bowl of artichoke hearts and chard, and a veg burger
3 rice cakes
a gazillion sugarfree candies, how extremely healthy of me

I'm actually proud of yesterdays workout. I didn't want to do it and I did the whole thing. I was bored and exhausted and pissed from a bad day at work. I even had to use an eliptical that was broken for ten minutes before I got a good one. (Damn I sound like such a spoiled american.) Ran 5 & 3 min intervals on the treadmill.

Food yesterday, I was so hungry:
2 tsp miso\coffee n soy
1 cup jicama
1 cucumber
1 zucchini, 1 tomato, 1 veg sausage (early)
3 red peppers
5 sticks of celery
4 rice cakes
coffee n soy
WORKOUT
bowl of broccoli and peppers with a veg burger
a cucumber and 4 tomatoes
5 rice cakes
2 tsp flax meal

Up to 11 minutes running, no ibu, no pain. Note: only did 3 sets each for triceps and biceps. It's ok, I will not die, it was really just getting late. I wanna be up to 15 minutes of running by the end of November, and running outside by Christmas break. I wonder if I'm dreaming. Dunno if I'll ever get there.

Food:
2 tsp miso
tomato, pepper. cuke, lettuce, sprouts and basil with salt and lemon
more cuke
coffee with soy
WORKOUT
4 pickles
a bowl of broccoli and 2 veg burgers
1 tsp of flax
3-4 cups of popcorn

Thursday: worked all day, day off of training

Yesterday (Halloween)
Ran 13 mins on the treadmill. The first 5 or so felt clumsy and weird, and I was feeling a little asmaish and it was haed to breathe, but nevertheless, 13 worked! Trained deltoids.
Food:
The usual, with carrots and a few extra green peppers instead of jicama. Ate a little seitan and some cherry tomatoes after trick or treating, and then home for a burger and spinach. Not eating for that long, especially after a workout left me spacey. I'll bring a shake next time.

13 mins on the treadmill today, no pain, just a little clumsy and boredish. My lungs and breath were fine, quads fine too. I think as I get stronger and gain endurance running indoors, I'll be able to settle down and watch a movie on the treadmill or something instead of keeping myself so occupied with music. Weight lifting was strong today, it was deltoids.

Food:
2 tsp miso
a bowl of hella spicy spinach
shake (rainbow light, h2o, lemon, and lots of ginger, came out kind of yucky)
coffee and soy
WORKOUT
3 pickles
150 cals of mixed veggies, a veg burger
about 4-500 calories of popcorn and yeast
if i get motivated, a tsp of flax in a few, but i'm really not hungry

This morning playing basketball, I had no energy to jump, so this afternoon at the gym, i didnt go on the treadmill at all. My total cardio was 60 mins on the elliptical, no running.It's getting hard for me to break a sweat on that thing, but I went pretty fast. Lifting was hard (biceps and triceps) but it felt good to challenge my muscles! By the time I got home, I was so hungry.
Food:
2 tsp miso
coffee, soy
1 cup jicama
a cucumber
passion tea with splenda
zucchini, tomato, a veg sausage
3 pieces of celery
3 rice cakes
coffee, soy
WORKOUT
2 pickles
chard, artichoke hearts, veg burger
about 200 calories of popcorn
2 tsp ground flax
a couple more pickles

some baby peppers
some cherry tomatoes
a zucchini. a tomato, a veg sausage
