Journey back to fitness.... Day 1

Saturday, February 12, 2011

I ran a 10k in October and loved it. I have had a major health set back, but am ready to begin the long road back to healthy and feeling good about my body again. I have started C25k again, its slow going, but I truly believe in the magic of this program, it changed my life before and know it will bring me back to fitness again. I am tracking my food and water and staying focused. I am visualizing running and biking along the beautiful Boise River again....

One thing I know about myself is I need a goal on the horizon and the bigger it is, the more likely I am to dig in and work for it. Even though I am starting again pretty much from ground zero, my goal is to run a half marathon this summer and compete in the McCall triathlon in August 2011.

One day, one step, one choice at a time...

Count your blessings and sieze the day!

    You and I should be accountability buddies! I had a set back after getting injured at my half marathon. I went weeks without running and then when i tried to run again my conditioning had gone to hell, so i gave up for a couple of months.

    I'm actually going to be trying barefoot running when i start training for a marathon this December, so that's something new that's getting me excited about going back to running. I know i definitely need some help in staying accountable. Let me know if you're interested!

    PS: we still have about the same to lose! I was up higher at the beginning of this week but due to the flu i lost about 4 lbs from not being able to eat anything, but drinking about 10 glasses of water a day. Now i get full from eating a tiny meal...the flu diet- miserable, but apparently it works.
