kmartdollie's Journal, 30 January 2013

I went to the gym and I ran 4 miles and did 30 minutes on the elliptical. The running felt GREAT. No hip issues, nothing wrong with my hips, knees, ankles or feet. No pain, no pressure. It is still hard, even after almost a year of running, to get myself psyched up to run. Once I start, and I can do 3 minutes, then I can get to 5, and once I get to 10 minutes I know I am going to be able to do it all and finish. I decided I really liked the one night of elliptical/abs/weights and then the next night of elliptical/running. I think I am going to try it like that for the next week or so. I am now back at 4.00 miles, but before I hurt my hip, I was doing 4.25 miles. It may seem like a little, but I don't want to push myself for that extra .25 until I feel I'm ready and I'm not pushing my hip or my joints too hard. I haven't lost any weight in 7 days, but I can't really be discouraged. Back along my weight loss, it is normal for me to go about 9 or 10 days between posting a loss. My plan is just to keep on keeping on and keep up the exercise, try to eat less, and just keep doing a decent job on everything.

That's incredible. You've come so far with running! I finally stepped on the treadmill today (I've been avoiding it for weeks!) I ran 1/2 mile before I had to stop....it's a start. I can't wait to beable to run 3 plus miles.

Yippee for you! I am so happy you are painfree this week and the running feels good. Alternating activities will gove your joints a rest. After all, you want to do this for the long term, right? You are gonna break into the 160's any day now!! woohoo
