Becoming the runner I used to be

20 years ago (and 50 pounds ago) I used to be able to run a sub 3:30 marathon. My daily runs were an addiction I could not do without. Now running is a chore. It has been a steady slide downhill for the last 15 years. As I approach 60, unless I change my ways, it will continue to get worse.

My Goals:
I want to get back to my good running weight of 20 years ago. 175 pounds seems about right.

I turned 60 last year and have steadily put weight back on. I stepped on the scale this morning and weighed 232.6 (the most ever!!). So today (6/20/12), I start over. THe journey begins!

My Program:
I've always been pretty good about running (5-6 days a week for the last 30+ years). I need to change some bad habits (soda, donuts, late night snacks, etc) and start some new ones (drinking water, eating healthy, counting calories, etc). Learn to say No (to food).

Pirates versus Tigers would be perfect! emoticon

I like Leyland and the city of Detroit could use a break.

Snapped chain? Uh oh! I usually have a small under saddle tool bag with a small chain tool. It is small but the few times I have needed it, it has come in handy and helped me get back home.

I am with you, I prefer running, but biking (and swimming when the pool is open at a reasonable time) is good for cross training too.

Happy running/riding!

Are you okay? Just checking since you haven't been on the virtual relay.
