Yesterdays struggle was "time". I had so many things going on that I didn't get the strength training workout in. I don't belong to a gym so I need to think creatively about what to do & how to fit it into the day.

Any suggestions from my awesome readers?

Tonight we have a "buddy run" around Lake Merritt Since we are still beginners learning how to train they don't expect too much. That is a good thing. Some introductions, a few stretches and off we go for 15 mins out & 15 mins back.

The new shoe inserts seems to hold my arch in place and force my foot into line. This new ergonomics however doesn't agree with my hip. I hope the hip is just a growing pain and not a permanent issue. Lots of stretching & maybe some Ben-Gay before bed.

It was nice to see that I wasn't the slowest or biggest complainer in the bunch. I ran the duration and didn't come in last!

Perhaps this is possible?

suggestion for "not enough time and no gym membership..." it's time to pull out those Jane Fonda VHS tapes.

I do have an awesome workout VHS tape hosted by Cher. It is really a great workout if you can look past the black lace & leather bodysuit and tune out the muzak version of Cher songs in the background.

I used to do lunges around the house with ankle and free weights. If you have stairs, even better. :) I also bought a Pilates DVD set that I liked (but now I belong to a gym). I recently saw the same set at Target on sale.
