Setting Big Goals

I'll be honest- I'm fed up with caring about my weight.
I think we've all felt this way, sometimes even while the scale is heading down. We think about a future where we count every grain of rice and head directly for that tub of ice cream to scare those thoughts out of our heads.

I'm learning to focus on bigger goals that will improve my health.

I'm learning to focus on bigger goals that will improve my health.
On March 25, 2012 I competed my first half marathon. I managed to gain between 10-15lbs during the training, and lost 2 inches at my waist. I took the training to heart, and learned how to run and *enjoy* myself. I took the core workout and made it a nightly practice. I took the concepts of cross-training, LSR, speed work and hill work and made them my reality. I went from jogging barely 2 miles to finishing a half marathon in just about 5 months, and all with a positive attitude while raising money for an amazing charity.

My next big goal is a continuation of the first. I want to complete at least 3 more races in 2012.
This includes the Kuai'i Half Marathon (9/2) and two other 10k/12k foot races.
Since I want to get FASTER (And get under 3 hours for the next half marathon!)- I'll be focusing on that as a goal, so dropping a bit of the extra flub will be helpful in that. It all works together, but this is more digestible for me.

ALRIGHT! Well, nice to see you back for sure :-)

As for biking . . . the weather here went dark. I don't mind the rain . . .but when I can't see potholes then it gets a might dangerous. Too bad, I love to ride.

Are you back in your old place now?
