Toot Your Horn Tuesday


Good Tuesday morning everyone! If you’re new to these parts of the Internets, the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans is all about supporting your in all of your weight-loss and fitness endeavors! Really!

Today, I’m hear to do some tootin’ (I love to say that and totally laugh like a 12-year-old boy while I’m writing it)!

After a several-month-long hiatus from running, today I am starting the Couch to 5K program from scratch. For like the 587th time. Okay, not really that many times, but I’ve been around the block a time or two with C25K (shhhh, she’s easy ;).

I love to run. I’m one of those people who actually gets the running high and starts to feel in the zone around mile 8. Yeah. And lately I’ve been running zero miles. I can’t say exactly why, other than time constraints and life getting in the way. But I’ve finally come to the realization that my life is not complete without my feet pounding the pavement in that rhythmatic way while I lose myself to the music pumping through my headphones.

I need to run.

If you’re interested in running, we just kicked off a new Couch to 5K program on Saturday! We are training for our virtual 5K/10K – Run The ‘Hood that will be happening in the city where you are on May 28, 2012. You read that right, it’s happening right where you are. In your neighborhood, in your city, on your dirt road, along your favorite running trail, or on your treadmill. You run your race, in your place, at your pace. And you get a race shirt, swag bag, AND finishers medal.

Hold on now….I’m going to tell you exactly what you need to do to get registered! GO to our Race Central Page right now. You can get the skinny on the race and all the other running deets you’ll need to know. We also have a group set up on the ‘hood (our private community forum), and we’d love t have you join us there.

Oh, one more thing! We’re also giving away the Cadillac of sports bras from Moving Comfort. It’s guaranteed to keep your girls from knocking you out. Seriously. There’s science to back up that statement!

And now it’s your turn! Toot your horn. Tell us something good you’ve done this past week! We want to hear all about it!

    I have exercised every day for a month! I don’t think I have ever done that before.

    • Christy_TheSistherhood

      That is awesome, Paula!!!

  • Nancy

    I am still going strong on the Six Pack Abs workout.  And…even though I swore to myself I would never try it again, I am seriously thinking about trying the c25k again.  One of the girls at exercise class is saying I should try it once more.  She said she would “Run the Hood” with me at my pace.  I’ll be deciding for sure by tomorrow, so I can get started to finishon time for the 5k.

      Nancy, I just started over yesterday. If you try it again and I think you should, definitely take it easy and at a pace that feels good to you!!! Good luck :)

    I ran 6 miles this last weekend & came in under my 10k time from last May!!  I’m actually doing this!

    • Christy_TheSistherhood

      WOOHOOO!!!!!!! That’s awesome!!

  • Shannon

    I had said that I wanted to increase my running from 3 miles to 6 miles in the next 10 weeks. I ran 4 yesterday and 3.5 today. Real slow. :) But I did it. So I am well on my way to meeting my goal!


    • Christy_TheSistherhood

      Way to go, Shannon! I got out and did my C25K W1,D1 yesterday. It was humbling to say the least ;)

  • anng

    My toot for this week is that I have done 27 days out of 27 days of the #6PackMarch ab workout. I can’t believe I did 85 situps tonight! :)
    I have also kept up with the #ironsisters weights workouts, thus enabling me to lose 1 in my waist this month!!

      Ann! I’m so proud of you!!!!
