Sunshine and Working Out

The rain has stopped... only briefly I'm sure... and the sun is out... and guess what? Im at work.. of course.
Ive been super good working out this week! Have you?!! There are tons of races, runs and marathons in the summer... Im thinking about doing one... or two... but Im not sure how far I can run... I need to get a pedometer... well what I really want is a heart rate monitor that also calculates how many steps Ive taken/ how far Ive run. The most Ive run at once is 4 miles... in about 50 minutes, so I know I could do a 5km...and probably a 10km... but Id really love to run a half marathon but that might have to wait until next summer. There are Disney runs/marathon at Disney Land... oh how Id love to run in one of those!!

Ive worked out every day so far this week...I know its only been three days, but hey, I almost never work out on Sundays! I worked outside twice and went to yoga once and am heading back outside today on account of the sunshine!

And remeber to drink tons of water and use sunscreen everyday! even if its overcast!


  1. I was thinking of doing the Princess half marathon in Disney this past February but it wasn't feasible then. I think I will next year though, I love all the great themed runs you can find in any city.

  2. I just barely learned that you need to get in 10,000 steps a day for weight loss, 7,000 to maintain. Doing a marathon is a great goal to stay in shape, I'm looking to sign up for one in my hometown too(Denver).

    Found your blog from Welcome Wednesday and I'm saving up for this sweet little heart rate pedometer widget: http://www.amazon.com/Sportline-Womens-Heart-Monitor-Pedometer/dp/accessories/B003XVW95C

    Hope this helps!


  3. hey way to go with working out every day this week! that's something to be proud of. i always feel amazing when i can pull something like that off!! <3 rubygirlblog.com

  4. You are so inspiring! I have been running for a few years now and it always pushes me to read about someone training for races! My hubby and I completed a half a couple years ago and crossing that finish line was one of the best feelings I have ever had! You can do it!
