Love Treadmill Games...and March Madness!

Last week, I actually did get a couple of runs in! Whoo Hoo!!!
Friday I ran an easy 3miles! Then Saturday, I was going to do the same thing, just an easy 3. Lucky for me March Madness was on, and we were having so much fun cheering on the underdog...that my time flew by...and the miles added up! I played a little game with myself, I put a towel over the dashboard of the treadmill. During commercials I ran 6.0, when the game started I would go up to 6.3, and every free throw I would go up 1! If the game tied up ,then I would do a 1 min. celebration at 7.0! (It tied back and forth often). When I started my run there was 9 min. of basketball time left....I thought that I would be able to get my 3 miles in ...No problem! I was not expecting overtime! I told myself I would not stop running until the game was over! Conclusion I ran 6 miles! That is good for me....right now! I am excited to do the whole thing over this Saturday...and maybe run 7!

I have kept up the body pump and spinning! I can already tell, that my muscles are slowly responding! I knew I had muscles....somewhere???!!!!

My hip is hurting, I have to use my arm to lift my leg! I am pretty sure it is just the muscle tightening up after lack of use! I hope! I am going to get some yoga in today and this weekend!

I have dropped 4 lbs! HOOORAY!
I only need to loose another 15....but that 15 feels like 100!

I hope everyone is having a great day!
Big thanks to all of you super stars who give encouraging stories and quotes, that keep popping in my head...and get me excited! It took a bit to actually get me moving...but I'm on my way! =)


  1. Some good workouts there, well done! Take care of that hip and don't do to much too soon. Keep it going!

  2. Great job Sherri! Baby steps but you've got that down already and are well on your way. Ice that hip!

  3. Well done - you are well back into it now. Good idea to play games with the treadmill - that would keep motivation and interest well up!

  4. You're such an inspiration! Great job Sherri!! :-)

  5. Great work there! When I tried body pump I couldn't move my arms above my head for days haha it's tough!

  6. Great job on the bodypump and spin class - woohoo. Oh, and especially those 4 lbs! I have 15 to lose, too...not running does that - whaa!
