Excellent workouts and miles this week already and it's only Thursday! Liking those Full Body Workouts you're doing at the gym. I desperately need to do some strength training. I have gained weight at an alarming rate; can hardly fit into my running clothes! uck!

Smooth - Ya went back to the gym about 4 months ago. I felt like I was loosing strength and stamina like it was going out of style, gaining weight and feeling tired all the time.So back to the gym and I'm really feeling better, much better! I'm doing workouts for tone and strength and life is returning at an amazing pace. I can't believe I let my strength training suffer for so long. But I've got myself on the right track again. In a week or so I'm going to reintroduce swimming into my workout regime along with the weight training, elliptical and calisthenics and get back to doing the jump rope again too!

9 tempo is a tough run, especially with that wind. Great job.

Great run and workout! You're training strong for Boston..!!!
