I'm a two handed pre-runner
Saturday, July 31, 2010
A half-marathon in late November caught my eye. And as I'm seeing slow gains in fitness (the scale is still whack), I resumed running training, with 30 seconds jog, 30 seconds walk progressing to 45 seconds jog and 20 seconds recovery -- looking at the mileage and my physical issues -- which have been tweaked by the 2 mile mark. I'm now building on the 2 mile status -- my phone set to stopwatch or an mp3 player in one had and a bottle of water in the other. Today the heat index was 111 degrees. My daughter and I waited until evening -- but the lightning was coming in, so I did a mile consistent jogging. I've logged the time so I can work on seeing improvements there too. Tomorrow DD and I are going to a gym for the treadmill action.
I've set up an ambitious but do-able plan for August. I'm going to focus on the fitness goals, and maybe the weight will surprise me!
