Even though I run for an hour, 5 miles, three times a week, I decided to start the Couch to 5k program over. I run SO SLOW that I want to speed up my pace to a mile under 10 minutes, so I thought it would be a good way to build it up slowly. But that means back on the treadmill again so I can control how fast I go. I could use my motoactv watch to track my speed, but it's just so much easier on the treadmill. I think I'll still run on the trails with Mark on the weekend for an hour just to keep up my endurance though. Haven't really decided about that yet. If not, I'll take my little dog for a walk at the lake instead while Mark runs. : )
School is so hard from home, I have ZERO motivation to do it. I have almost all of it to do for the week and it's Friday. It's all due by Sunday at midnight. Some of it was due on Thursday night and I didn't do it. It's just not the same. I like to go to school where I have to do it, there are chairs that are comfortable to write in, I'm with other students, I go there specifically for that reason, that time is allocated for school. I even stay after school for a few hours and practice a couple of days a week. But at home? NO MOTIVATION. I don't know how people do it from home, they must be very disciplined. I've gone to school from home before and did just fine, but not court reporting.
Mark and I have been tanning, I talked him into it, except I told him to get the SUNLESS tanning. Tanning is so bad for your skin! He's younger than I am, so not worried about his skin yet, so he is
getting bed tanning. I'm already seeing the effects of sun damage from all the sunburns I've gotten throughout my life, which are countless. And I'm definitely not going to do all of this work on my skin daily and nightly just to put it under a tanning bed. But, he looks good with a tan. Wonder if he'll change his mind when he's in his 40's. I'm fine with sunless tanning. Looks better than my normal extremely pale self! : )
I don't think I'm any better at all from all the medication I've taken from the doctor since I saw him last week, and I go back on Thursday, so I don't know what the hell is wrong with me. I think it's drainage now that makes me cough, but, on a curious note if that is what it is, what is causing all of this drainage that makes me cough all the freaking time? If it IS drainage, I don't see how a pulmonologist can help me, yet I think it would be wrong to make an appointment with a DIFFERENT specialist while he's already treating me. We'll see next week when I go to see him.
