Poor Michelle is getting a lot of attention on the boards today. I just wanted to add to what Jeanne had said. I was trying to figure out myself how you were lifting for an hour 5 days a week. If you were working your whole body everyday, that's a bit overkill. If you enjoy weights more than cardio, I would suggest sticking with the 5 days a week thing, but maybe just doing one body part per day. You should be able to do a number of variations on your total gym to hit each muscle group - chest, back, shoulders, arms (biceps & triceps) and legs, doing 3-4 exercises for each muscle group. Or combining - chest & back, shoulders & arms, twice a week; legs once a week. And so on and so on. If you spent 30 minutes working a body part, then you could do cardio afterwards (I always lift before doing cardio) for 30 minutes. And I definitely recommend doing heavier weights for fewer reps over a thousand light reps. Seems like a waste of time to me. I'm all about working out efficiently.
Anyway, enough unsolicited advice. I'm putting my goal out there that I'm going to run 3 times this week. Sounds so small compared to people like Les, but I'm just a running infant. I teach aerobics twice a week, so I don't want to do it on those days. So, Monday and Wednesday I'll lift and then teach class. Tuesday, Thursday and one weekend day I'll run. My goal this week is to be able to run 1.5 miles continuously of my 3.1 mile goal. Hopefully by October I'll be able to run all of the 5K.
