Day 9 - Exercise

So today, I started my strength routine…lifted weights for 20 minutes.  I'm sure it will go a little longer once I'm able to do additional reps/sets.  But for now, I'm proud of what I've done.

I also decided on a 5K; thank you for pushing me GCGfriend H.  St. Pius X is doing it's annual Buck Knob Hill 5k.  I've wanted to do it for the past couple years but never knew when it was until it was too late.  According to the event description "Join us for this "heck of a hill" 5K challenge! Race from St. Pius X High School to the cross on Buck Knob Hill and back! You will gain 386-foot elevation in 1.5 miles on your way up! The downhill is the best in town! Enjoy plenty of refreshments when you hit the finish!!! All proceeds benefit Project Prom."  I figure my street is the perfect training ground!!  

The run is on March 29 which gives me 12 weeks to train…not that 12 weeks is necessary for a 5K…but my goal is to get healthy…not just to do a 5k.  I have added my training schedule to my calendar and I'm ready to start on Monday; although the first few sessions may need to be indoors with this insanely cold weather coming our way.

Today's Win

I lifted weights!!  Yay me!!


  1. Great Work T!! The "Couch Potato to 5K" is a great training plan if you need one. Good Luck! :)

  2. Yes, your street will be the perfect hilly training route. :)
