Up & Running Workout #1 – a skip and a jog

@runningonline Workout #1
(Crib notes for the session)

Did my first session of my Up & Running course this evening. And interesting combination which saw me relieve the skipping along the foreshore was over and I could just go back to running ;)

workout #1

Covered 8km using a combination of walking, running, jogging and skipping. Was fun, but will head out a little earlier next time, ended up walking home in the dark! I’ll also wear my newer shoes, not my worn out sad old shoes. They’re okay for walking, but NOT for the running. Felt the impact on my left foot while skipping along!

arm band

Oh and I have to say my new phone arm band (scored off ebay for $8 including postage) is awesome. Even has a sneaky little key pocket. Score!


(ps, my hair is getting really long!)

Planning out my week

How is this not a plan? I have a few trips to the Central Coast and Sydney for appointments, Lady Gaga, and the Good Food and Wine Show… and maybe even seeing Ms Glowless to boot :) Do some running and bootcamp in there, then fly to Hobart for the Speech Pathology Australia conference, armed with gloves, hats and scarves, and running shoes, to find my speechie mojo and to see the lovely Foale ladies :)

My someday has come

seven days

Ow ow ow. So sore in the quads and abs and SOMEWHERE in my arms from my first Bootcamp session yesterday morning!

Yes. So I’ve started Bootcamp at the same time I’m starting the Up and Running 10k program. Progress, they say.

Looks like my running gear is coming to Hobart next week and Canberra the week after. It’s gonna be cold!

Bring on 30.

(I also started my Speech Pathology blog this week. Finally. It’s currently getting some of my relevant posts here republished over there but new content will be upon us soon!)

Getting Up and Running!

Wow! I won a 10k training course with Up and Running from Shauna @ Dietgirl… just the kick this girl needs to get back to her running that she’s been putting off for so long!

MS Fun Run Canberra

Yes, I can already run 10k (above is a pic from the MS fun run in sub zero temperatures in Canberra last year!), but this is a chance to get my time down (aiming for under an hour) and to psyche myself into tackling a half-marathon! (and get me on track for the City2Surf in August)

Totally will be posting about this here, but if you want to join me in the 10k course, it starts on June 14, with the 5k version starting Monday 11th June. Head over to Up and Running to find out more about the program.
