I finally began my training. My cold has hung on a little but I worked past it. I have determined that It takes me 45 minutes to "Wog" 5K I would like to cut that down to 35 minutes that is my goal. I would like to point out that I had already exercised when I determined that time so rested I might be able to go a little faster. So now if I can push on without hurting myself I should be able to see some progress in the two weeks before my 5K.
I haven't lost any more weight but I have still been getting a lot of riding in. I have stepped up my rides I do a lot more trotting and we are working on cantering now. I love riding. I love being around horses. I love how the smell how the move and the expressions they get on their beautiful faces (they are extremely expressive with their eyes and ears).
I unfroze my gym membership. I want to start back at Zumba a couple times a week but will wait until after the 5 K I need to build up my speed as a first priority. I also need to figure out a good upper body workout. Most stuff I do is great for the lower body. Riding has really started trimming and shaping my legs and running does the same. Sadly the area I really need work is my arms and back. Maybe I can try a sculpting class or something? We will have to see.
