jogging this weekend

July 20th, 2009 at 05:35 am

Saving log - $0 tip box
Spending log - $3.88 coffee, bagel + $4 grocery + $2 coffee (what? I was sleepy) + $1 parking lot sale
Found money - $.01 (sidewalk in front of Woodland Park Zoo) + $.01 (parking lot)

Did the three miles in 46 min 20 sec. While its not great, it was a minute and half better than last week. The trainer has a goal for me - 44 min. Its funny how if someone sets a goal for me, I work hard at it. If I try to set an exercise goal myself, somehow I treat it less seriously.

I also tried a different tack based on what I read

Text is today and Link is
today. Lately, as I jog, its time to myself and I've been thinking sad thoughts this last month. Its not easy to jog particularly fast thinking sad thoughts. Today I thought, "its a beautiful day, I'm strong and healthy and every week I'm moving faster ... I'm not tired ... I'm feeling great."

And I harvested 10 blueberries. From 1-2 year old plants, its all the harvest I will get this year. Blueberry bushes apparently mature after about 4 years.

    I ran a marathon last November when I was woefully underprepared - had only ran 14 miles once beforehand - it was my brain/lack of negativity that kept my legs moving - I think believing that you can do something is half the battle to achieving it... don't get me wrong I felt like giving up at times, but then I just concentrated on putting one leg in front of the other...

    We planted blueberries too this plant is doing well, the other is struggling... and they're right beside each other ! Ah well...

    Positive thinking can be very, very powerful. Good for you improving your time!
