100th Post - A Little Music

This is my 100th post! I had hoped in the 10 months of writing that I would have done more posts than that but it's better than not posting at all.

I'm planning on hitting the pavement tomorrow morning for the first time in a week. It's been a week because of hurting my knee last Tuesday when I pushed myself a little too hard on my bike. My knee hasn't hurt since Friday. Saturday, hubby and I even walked 3 miles with no pain. But I will admit, I did take one Advil in the morning before we left, but only one.

As far as Couch to 5k, I should be doing week 6 day 3, 25 minutes of running. I wasn't able to complete the week 5 day 3, 20 minutes of running. So for now, I am just going to try to up my increments. I can do that 10 minutes of running, er jogging slowly, day. Maybe I just need to increase that each day. I would like to be able to get up to a mile straight. It's like the finish line is there, like I can almost see it but my brain gives up just a minute or two too early! Maybe tomorrow, although I shouldn't push myself too hard  and risk injuring myself again.

I was working iTunes tonight, getting my playlist to have a little more variety. I decided to add in Mr. Blue Sky by Electric Light Orchestra. I'm sure you've heard this song lately on a Glidden Paint commercial as well as in a Volkswagen commercial a couple of years ago. Hubby and I spend a lot of time listening to this song the second summer we were dating. I have no idea where he found it but we instantly fell in love with it. It's quick and uplifting.

What are you favorite songs to work out to?


  1. Congrats on your 100th post! I know we all set goals for ourselves. Remember, blogging is aout quality not quantity, whether you hit your 100th blog on your 100th day or not until your first year was up your words are a place to let your thoughts rest.
    Keep up the good work on c25k. Seems to be a lot of injuries lurking around lately... can we blame the heat? I'm all for it! I am ready for the fall. Cooler weather, a nice breeze... ahh that sounds nice.
    Keep up your hard work chickie! You can do it!

  2. Thanks Kris! I am looking forward to seeing you on Saturday. I am hopeful that Jen will have a full house, although it's not really looking that way right now.

  3. It usually fills up at the last moment. However it is a tough time of year with people away on vacation. No matter big or small it will be a good experience for everyone there :)
    See you soon!

  4. Leg/Knee/Foot injuries are such a pain, literally! Take care of yourself and you'll be speeding past everyone in no time!

    I wish I could be there to see you this weekend!
