Oranges 2 Oranges

Looking Back at 5K and Moving Forward…

Week 9 – Break Out the Cap & Gown!

I started Week 9 today, the final week of the C25K program. I’ll be graduating in 4 days! My first report is here, on the Week 9 page.

***Week 9 Update***: I’ve posted about my second run this week. I’ve included a question that anyone can answer freely. Stop by and give it a gander!

NaNoWriMo! and OHR Decision…

(Click for website)

My sister told me about this, and I’ve been wanting to do something like it for a little while now. The goal is to write 50,000 words (a novel) during the month of November. It’s called NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. I’m signed up, on top of doing this… DRUMROLL PLEASE…

I’ve decided to go ahead with doing the One Hour Runner (OHR) program after I finish the C25K next week!

The format of this blog will most likely stay the same for the time being, with the weeks numbered, until I work on getting hosted on my own and designing Oranges 2 Oranges myself. That’s another project in the works, rattling around in my brain.  :^\

Post Update:

I have posted about my 3rd run of Week 8. You can read it toward the bottom of my Week 8 page.

Also, here’s the link to the Go! 5K Walk/Run in Oak Brook, IL, that I posted about last week, for those of you who haven’t seen the post: Go! 5K Run in Fullersburg Woods.

Another Link & an Interlude in Week 6

Here is the third step of Roni’s series, “3 Steps to a Healthier YOU!”

Step 3: Move More

I also commented on her article, but wanted to repeat my comment here, so I’ve posted it as an interlude to my Week 6 progress on the Week 6 page. It was something that I realized I wanted you all to read, too, because it explains a little about my attitude about the running.

🙂
