Team in Training – The Shrinking Jeans of Christy


June 22, 2010 By Christy

There were so many moments in San Diego. Moments I will never, in all my life, let go. Running the entire race with Heather, and crossing the finish line within ONE second of her. That was an amazing moment. (Okay, my favorite part of running with Heather was the fact that her name rubbed off […]

It’s week 1 and I’ve put this post off long enough…. I am down from last week, so that’s good! But I’m still not where I want to be. No one’s fault but my own, though! I am so glad we have a new challenge starting. SO glad. Last week: 140.8 Challenge Start Weight: 140.4 […]

Okay, so it’s been a few weeks since I posted. I blame it on the frustrating injuries I’ve been working through. So there. I’m happy to report that I’m pretty much over all the owies. Yeah, I’m still having issues with my IT bands, but I’ve learned how to deal with it. Taking liberal walk […]

I’m feeling a little stagnant these days. Not in a physical sense, because I am training for a 1/2 marathon, but in a mental sense. My mind is just not in the weight loss mode right now for some reason. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m so close to my goal that I feel […]

Week 9 was a week of getting back into the groove. After being on the disabled list for a couple of weeks, I was so ready get out and run without pain. This past week, per Coach Joe’s orders, I took it easy. I rested on the prescribed days, and only managed to get one […]

WOW, week EIGHT. That means I’m almost halfway through our training for the San Diego Rock N Roll 1/2 Marathon on June 6, 2010. If you didn’t read last week’s VTNT Diary, it turns out that “run in the hills” made the tendon in my heel all kinds of mad, so they flared up causing […]

Week 7 of my Team in Training program didn’t go exactly as planned. My biggest fear was realized this week, and I was stricken with some mysterious foot pain. More on that later…. Thanks to my donors this week, I’m officially over the $2,o00 mark. I know it’s not showing up on my fundraising page […]

This week was so hard. Physically, mentally, emotionally. So many times I wanted to give up, give in, QUIT. I didn’t though. On Monday, I got a little crazy and decided to Shred with the Sisterhood. As in Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred. Yeah, um NO. Not a good idea. I had my first 5 […]

Week 4 of training for the San Diego 1/2 Marathon through the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training Program is DONE! What an amazing week it was! First thing first! Thanks to all of my fabulous donors this week! My husband, Brian, donated $250. That blew my socks off. Yeah, those knee socks that […]

Okay, first let me get my weigh-in out of the way, since I didn’t do it on Wednesday. Well, I weighed in, but wasn’t happy, so I didn’t share. Last week: 137.2 (woooohoooooo) This week: 139.6 (boooooooooo. hisssssssss) Being out of town, and not really caring about how much I was eating did it to […]
