…a very long time. Over a year! Wow!
I pretty much stopped running for quite a while, concentrated on finishing up my 2-year degree and now I am just 1 1/4 semester away from getting my bachelors; only 166 dyas to go! In the mean time I have almost gained 30 lbs and my goal over the next 166 days is to loose
some most of it.
I am not sure how heavy I’ll get back into running, but my goal is to be fit enough to jump into training for a full marathon (Columbus Marathon – October 2011). I’d like to be able to run 8 to 10 miles on a consistant basis before starting to train for the full.
HOWEVER, right now my body is physically not even close to that. I ran/walked 5 miles on Saturday (outside) and walked 3 on Monday (treadmill). I am mentally a step ahead from a beginner, I KNOW my body can do the distance, and I am not intimidated by a 5 miles. That should be a plus, right?
My gameplan, if it all works out with my class schedule is to exercise 3 times a week, including one ‘long run’ on the weekend. In addition to that, I am going to eat a little healtier than in the past. 🙂
All roads are paved with good intentions. Lets see where this journey leads us!
