Great night for a hike

I haven't started my new training program yet (Monay's the day :)) but I didn't want that to be an excuse to not exercise so last night I decided to go on a hike.  I talked Regan into so we packed up the dog and headed to a place nearby called Arctic Valley.  Now, I do consider this a hike but it is a very mellow, low key hike.  It is a gradual uphill climb and it took us about an hour to get to the overlook- I was so bummed that I had forgotten my camera though because it was a beautiful view.  It felt so good to get outside and get some exercise :).  The dog was hilarious, he would run from one side of the mountain to the other (I swear it was less than a minute for him to get from one side to the other)- he was so happy and excited to be out there running circles around us :).  It was a great time for all of us and reinforced my desire to get back into shape.  Hope everyone has a great weekend and good luck to those racing!

Bad Blogger.....Bad

So, I have obviously not been the best blogger (or any blogger at all) for the last month.  I really hate admitting this but I basically let my injury beat me.  Not being able to exercise for 4 weeks took it's toll and pretty much threw me back to square one!  I have gone on two runs since I've healed and both were decent (I wasn't sucking wind as much as I thought I would) but getting back into the habit of "training" has been difficult.  I wasn't able to participate in any of the races I signed up for which was a bummer but the summer is not over and I am hoping to get a couple of 5Ks in yet.  I want to get back on track and having this blog (and reading everyone else's) helped me a lot.  I am a beginner (again :)) and am ok with that.  I am going to get onto a 5K training plan and just start over- fresh, renewed, healed, and recharged.  All support is welcome and very much appreciated :)!!

Happy Hump Day Bloggy Land!
