The good news is I made it though week 04, and you know the bad news. That was where it ended. Never made it into week 5, but for my benefit, I wanted to post the stats from that last week. Oh BTW, I have started week 01 again. Well see.... Week 04-Day01 Distance 2.33 mi. Calories 297 Fat 92 Time 35:00 Week 04-Day02 Distance 2.39 mi. Calories 304 Fat 94 Time 35:00 Week 04-Day03 Distance 2.30 mi. Calories 292 Fat 91 Time 35:00 Continue reading

Now that Christmas vacation is over (well, it was over last week really) it is really hard to MAKE the time to run. So many easy ways to miss a run, to put it off, to find an excuse. That makes the completion of week 03 something pretty special. Plus, when I tried this program originally in 2009, I got all the way to completing week 07, so I KNOW I can do this. (not sure why I never made it to week 08) Anyway, I am not too worried about the stats, but I like to post them to... Continue reading
Week 2 Day 3 took place outside, so I don't have any stats for that (I rely on the treadmill for the details). W2D03 Stats: None available, ran outside that day. Upon starting week 03 I didn't have time to make my own Podcast, so I downloaded a few of those that are out there on other blogs. W3D01 Stats: None available, dead batteries in the treadmill readout. While I really appreciate the effort that goes into making a C25K podcast, none of them had music that spoke to me. but music is so subjective anyway, wo chances are most... Continue reading

Started Week 02 today on the treadmill and it went quite well. I didn't get to complete my updated running podcast, so I had to fall back to my 2009 one. Um, yeah. Pretty bad, actually. I wonder if they got better in weeks 5 and 6 since I did three for each week? Anyway, I am totally planning to re-mix the week 02 podcast, so if you have any song suggestions let me know in a comment. Forgot to blog it, but I also completed Week 01 Day 03 on 12/27/2012. Distance: 1.77 mi. Calories: 225 K Cals: 70... Continue reading

It seems like every fall I try this crazy C25K thing again. And each time, I tend to make entries here on my blog. The purpose is to keep me accountable and track my progress. However, it also serves a reminder of the many times I've "tried again" with this program. Though there are no entries for 2011, I am pretty sure I got at least up to week 02 that year. Regardless, here we are again! This week I dusted off the old Week 01 Podcast and realized it was pretty bad. I ran to it but recruited some... Continue reading

I am not sure that running one time constitutes re-starting the program. To make it official I think I'd have to work in another run. We'll see. Been off the wagon a long time, will be hard to get back into this. 1.27 miles, 25 mins. *sigh* Continue reading

Yup, that pretty much all applies to me! clipped from blog.marshillchurch.org10 Things Forgiveness Is Not many Christians do not rightly ascertain what forgiveness truly is and is not, and so I’ve got a long list for you 1. Forgiveness is not approving or diminishing sin. It’s not saying, “Well, it’s... Continue reading

Gonna miss vox.com. At the high point, it was a great community blog site. Unlike social networks, the Vox community really connected. You got to know people, and then somewhere along the way, it all fell apart. Vox was back-burnered and spammers moved in. The community disconnected and now the... Continue reading
