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.

2 tsp miso

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

coffee, soy

1 cup jicama

some baby peppers

some cherry tomatoes

a zucchini. a tomato, a veg sausage

i couldn't get warm today... even when I ran. First five minutes i felt creeky, i felt like i weighed a million pounds and my joints and muscles were covered in rust. 13 minutes running. After about five, i felt warmer and smoother, my lungs weren't cooperating too well, we turned the heat on yesterday, it might be a reaction to that. Or else to partying outside Obama headquarters in the freezing cold last night.

 

Food:

2 tsp miso

coffee, soy

1 cup jicama

1 cucumber

alot of hot herb tea

3 rice cakes

1 zucchini, 1 tomato, 1 veg sausage

3 sticks celery

coffee, soy

WORKOUT

2 pickles

artichoke hearts (Hi John!) chard, and a veg burger

3 little rice cakes

a couple slices of carrot and a tsp of flax meal

Thursday: no workout, 12 hour work day, usual food, still digging the aternoon snack of lettuce, tomato, lemon, and flax.

 

Friday:

I reached my goal of running 15 minutes straight on the treadmill!

Pain free! (Except it felt kind of creeky at the beginning)

So as of right now, my gym cardio is 30 minutes fast on the elliptical, 15 (or maybe 13) mins treadmill running, and then 8 (maybe 10) more minutes on the crosstrainer. Then weight training, abs or back, and stretching.

Food yesterday:

2 tsp miso

coffee, soy

1 up jicama

1 cucumber

mint tea

some cucumber and carrot

1 zucchini, 1 tomato, 1 veg sausage

4 rice cakes

coffee, soy

WORKOUT

a bowl of green beans and a veg burger

alot of crappy sugarless candy

Aw, thank you ^_^ no one's ever called me assiduous before! I can use all the cheering on that comes my way too so double triple quadruple thank you!

 

Ran 15 on the treadmill again...

I overstretched a glute last night, and it made my knee hurt today... but since I knew the root of this particular pain, I ran through it. I knew there was not threat of re-injuring. It' feels so good to be getting myself back. I'm so scared to get hurt again. I think I'm on the right track though - my quads are getting strong enough to compensate!

 

Food today

3 tsp miso

1 scoop of rainbow light with powdered ginger

a little cucumber and tomato

coffee, splash of soy

WORKOUT

a bowl of spinach and 2 veg burgers

about 6 cups of popcorn and yeast (it was so delicious)

maybe a tsp of ground flax in a little while

I wonder if I can reach 20 minutes consistently by winter break?

Should I rephrase the as a goal?

Yeah, I think I can, I can state this goal without putting myself at risk for re-injury.

 

 

Goals:

To run 20 minutes on the treadmill by winter break.

To run a mile outside during winter break.

To run a 6k by spring/summer.

Thursday: no workout, regular thursday food except I ate some of a vega bar in place of some rice cakes.

 

Today:

20 minutes treadmill running(!!!!!!!!) then two more minutes (!!!!) . This is good because I twisted the knee on my injured leg this morning playing basketball, and I was going to baby it tonight, but I assessed the situation, was realistic about it, and knew what I could and could not do. I feel just as good about that as I do about the 20 minutes!

 

Food:

2 tsp miso

coffee w/ soy

1/2 vega bar

5 sticks of celery

a cucumber

1 zucchini, 1/2 tomato, a veg sausage

1 green pepper

coffee w/ soy

WORKOUT

a bowl of spinach and a veg burger

6 cups of popcorn

a boiled tomato with SALT (i want!)

I didn't think it was too bad, I thought it needed salt, chile, and lemon, but I think everything needs salt chile and lemon!

 

So much fun at the gym today! It got in the way of me doing abs and a proper stretching tonight though, cuz I was kind of in a rush to be somewhere on time. Finding my old long lost friend D there was a trip and so great! And then shot some hoops with some old students I lovelovelove. That was awesome because I hate going to the court when its filled with guys but I always want to. 30 mins elliptical, 20 mins treadmill run, 5 walk, biceps and triceps only. I guess its ok once in a while, I always do more, I shouldn't feel like I'm slacking and am going to lose progress just because of one off day. Right? Right. I think.

 

Food:

a scoop of rainbow with pumpkin pie spice, chile, stevia, 1 tsp flax, celery, and water
