4 plus 7

I ran 4 on Thursday (3/5/09) on the treadmill.

The 7 miler long run I planned on doing outside. But it appears that I am no longer immune to rain (haha) ūüėČ and decided that I should run the 7 on the treadmill instead of taking the chance to melt in the intermittened rain we had going on outside. I popped in “The Transformer” DVD and off I went. The mileage went surprisingly fast.

I am working on increasing my incline (because the world is not flat), eventually I would like to run consistently at 3% at least. The 7 miler was run at a 2% incline, which is up .5 from my previous runs. It didn’t seem to bother me too bad.

Update on my FIL: He had a setback two weeks ago. He was loosing weight and simply not feeling well for a week and a half straight. So the doctor decided to do a CAT scan to see if the treatment was working. If that was the case he would lessen the aggressiveness of the treatment and move the chemo from every two weeks to every three.

The treatment is working so far!!!! The doctor was pleased and now Roger goes every three weeks, to give his body time to recover between each chemo treatment. Right now however he’s suffering from a cold, which he thinks turned into a sinus infections. ūüė¶

Correction: My FIL is still receiving chemo every two weeks.

Little here and there

After the 6 miles on the 15th I did not run for almost a week. The cold that I had gotten kicked my butt and there was no desire to run.

On the 20th we bought the treadmill and even though I wasn’t feeling too well I managed 3 on the 21st and 4 on the 22nd. I took the 23rd off to give my still recovering body a rest.

On Tuesday I ran 3, and yesterday 4. I am not very fast on the treadmill. Actually my pace is much slower then my outside pace, but I am working on that. I think it is because I am intimidated by the fact that I have to go the speed of the treadmill, and can’t just slow down or walk without having to hit a few buttons first. Like I said, I am working on that.

I am still not 100% and actually think I have a sinus infection, but just haven’t taken the time to schlepp to the doctor. Next week! lol

It is great though just to be able to go downstairs whenever I want to and put my mileage in and not have to worry about the weather.

2 miles @ work treadmill – Weightlifting

Comments: All is good! I think I might have licked the stomach issue. I decided to take some Zantac 75 to see if that would help with my stomach pains. It seems to really have done the trick! I have occasional pains, but NOTHING like I had before. So I am thinking the obgyn issue let me to worry and inflamed my stomach lining. (I have had that before, but nothing close to that painful!) I will continue to montior and the Dr. appointment is still a go.

Treadmill, Stair-Stepper

Comments: My thought process over the course of the morning:

At my desk: “I’ll run the 2 miles outside, I haven’t run outside in a while…maybe I’ll run tomorrow, I just don’t feel like working out….oh, snow and ice tomorrow, well I’ll run today…”

Lockerroom: “Crap, what the hell is wrong with me, why didn’t I check to make sure I have running clothes packed instead of indoor workout clothes…it’s 11 now and the 20 min limit on machines means I can’t get my two miles in…what a goof I am!”

So I signed up for 20 min on the treadmill and with all the elliptical riders & stationary bikes being used, I signed up for the stairstepper after that.

Time: 11 am

Workout: Treadmill/Stair-Stepper

Duration: 20 min/15 min 

Miles: 1.44/~110 floors (1035 feet)

Calories: ?/?

Shoes: Saucony
