  1. Finally recovered from the flu. Was out for nearly a week and a half. Starting to work my way back to normal, so i'm hoping to post some revised goals this weekend.
  2. Down with the flu, so this week's gonna be a wash. Will reassess once i'm well again.
  3. Been radio silent, but no less productive. Good to read about everybody's progress even when I'm not actively posting. Since the last update I've missed one workout and one run, and only had one slip in the water goal. Life goal going well, too--interesting to see things get the biggest response that I wouldn't necessarily have considered "romantic" in the traditional sense.
  4. Serious kudos are in order. Way to bring it!
  5. Day 8 & 9 Missed a daily update, but not my goals. Cranked through my workouts on both days without incident, along with 2.3 / 1.2 mi. runs (today's run was a bear cause I just wasn't feeling it). Water goal's going well, though the temptation is still strong from time to time. Looking forward to getting past the cravings, at least as much as possible.
  6. What an awesome guild leader you are, VengefulPear! (Does that count?)
  7. Day 7 Easy stretch workout followed by 3+ mile run. Done and done! Water goal went well yesterday and is going well today. Surprised wife with flowers and a special bottle of wine for no reason. Looking forward to coming up with creative ways to finish out the chalkenge!
  8. Good call. I've been a little disappointed with my running times this week, but since I'm coming off a TOTAL holiday binge and haven't run in nearly two months, I'm having to mentally adjust my expectations. Good reminder of the need to constantly review and revise!
  9. Day 6--completed workout and run first thing this morning. Mile time sucked, but it was my first run around the neighborhood (to include HUGE hill) since starting the challenge. So far so good on the waster goal, but gonna have to be careful this evening. Life goal in progress!
  10. How can you resist water &cats?!? Day 5 Workout Done! 3 miles Done!! (not a great mile time, but focused more on distance). Water....DONE!!!!!
  11. I know exactly what you mean! I also find that I'm a lot less sore from my workouts if I've made time for yoga during the week. Day 4 Workout is good ole push-ups and pull-ups...Done! Ran 3 miles, one of them at 10:23. Lots of room for improvement, but...Done! Slipped on the water goal-had a coke zero with lunch (I won't bore you with the myriad ways I struggled to justify it). Needless to say, I felt like crap afterwards, so I'm chalking it up to lesson learned.
  12. Switched up the order for Day 3...ran my mile first (calves are NOT liking all this running, so today's mile was more of a brisk power walk than a jog) then did some yoga for my workout. I used to hate yoga, but have come to enjoy it quite a bit, particularly the wider range of motion I get from it. Water goal - 100%! Another day down!
  13. Day 2 Ugh. My 6 am trek out to the makeshift gym in my garage was made all the more painful by the cold weather. Took some time for the space heater to really get the place to a tolerable temp, but it all turned out ok in the end. Workout - Check! Soccer practice canceled for the second day in a row meant plenty of time to get a run in. Did 3 miles total but only clocked one - 11:02. Still playing around with intervals to try to find the sweet spot between best time and biggest cardio boost. Sprint intervals were either too hard or too long, meaning I spent longer at a slower recovery pace than I would have liked. Regardless, day 2 / mile 2 - Check! Nothing but water - Check and double check!
  14. Love the way you turned your injury into an opportunity--way to adapt!
  15. I loathe tracking, but find that it's almost impossible for me to have any clue where I am diet-wise by guesstimating. Like Lilth said, tracking every once in a while for a few days is a good way to "check in" and see where you are vs. where you thought you were--plus it helps to know that it's only for a few days!
