Back on Track...and tracking I will do...

Well I am back...sorry for the lack of posting, but there is very little time to do all of the things I have to do. The other day I finally got to run for the first time since my surgery and here is my run from my Nike+ I did a total of 30 minutes - however I forgot to start my Nike+ until about 2 minutes in.

The run went well - I have a lot more running in my future though since Jimmy and I signed up to do the Shamrock 1/2 Marathon in Virginia Beach the weekend before I turn Our training starts on the 29th of this month. We have 12 weeks of training - here is the program we are going to follow.

In order to keep myself on track with my training I was looking for a log or journal of some sort and I came across FitBook - I ordered mine 2 days ago and will be expecting it hopefully by the New Year. I can't wait to get looks so neat and is a 12 week training journal - which is going to be PERFECT for my 12 weeks of 1/2 marathon training. It has pages to track by month, day and week. You can also track your food intake in it too!

What is really exciting is that they are coming out with more personalized FitBook's in 2009 - they are going to have some for Mama's 2b, those trying to lose the baby weight (both of which I hope to make use of when baby #2 rolls around) and one for training for a full marathon - that of which I haven't decided if I am up for yet...but might be after the 1/2! So head on over to and check them out! Here is a pic of the book that the wonderful Angela sent me from FitBook - though the website has a lot more details! Stay tuned for a complete review when I receive my new FitBook! What a way to continue my weight loss and start up for 2009!
Alright - off to bed...will post a Christmas Eve/Christmas Post tomorrow...I'm beat!

Merry Christmas All!!!
