*waves* I am here for some accountability. I set a goal for myself to get 40 miles in by the end of October and set this goal on September 10th. Ideally I would like to have done 40 miles of pure running, but due to the temps already beginning to get too cold for my asthmatic self to run in safely, I am sometimes forced to hop on the elliptical or go for a long walk in a hilly area.

So far, I am at 32 miles and I would like to keep myself accountable for those last eight miles by posting my goal here. I feel confident I can easily surpass my goal, but I need the accountability because lately it has been far too easy to stay under my nice warm covers instead of going for a morning run in the cold.

I was doing karate training 3 times a week and running for ten minutes most mornings. Then I caught a cold It's been a week since I've done anything really active and I feel out of shape.

I've been sick for a while, but I'd like to start working out again. I used to work out a lot and it's been very odd for me not to do it lately.

I walk a couple of miles most days with the dogs, but really need to get after the strength and flexibility part. --I feel more agile and strong if I exercise regularly.

Yesterday I walked, AND did a whopping 15 minutes of strength and flexibility.

Did I mention that I HATE exercising? It's miserable. There aren't enough endorphins in the world to make me like it. I hate it. No, it's not to strong of a word. Exercise is horrible.

Atta-girl, JamieLeigh and Justy! Way to take care of business! WOO-HOO! Very nice work! --Don't let anyone tell you it isn't work. It is harder than a 12 hour day of hanging drywall!

Well so far today I have ran (read: stumbled down the hall half asleep) to the kitchen to make myself some cereal. But, last night around 8:00 I did do 2.someodd miles on the elliptical. I may go for a short run this afternoon as well. It's difficult to decide when to exercise because I am usually a nighttime bather, so I dont want to hang around in sweat funk all day. The afternoons are still warm so I can run, but it is more convenient to exercise at night so I can take a shower after. And if I exercise at night then I am forced on the elliptical, which I am not a fan of.
