Training: Week 1

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

So I'm training to become a long distance runner! I started this week and so far haven't died. My first short-term goal is to run a mile without stopping. I know I can do it. I found a chart to help me reach this goal here in spark and I know it will help me out greatly. According to my calculations I should be running a non stop mile by July 27th!!!!!! I'm so proud of the work I've put in thus far. I'm trying not to push myself too hard because I don't want to discourage myself. So I'm doing this the right way. Taking days off to rest my body like I'm supposed to and keeping to my schedule. This is the first time that I have ever really had a organized and structured workout at least when it comes to running. In the past I just ran without paying attention to distance vs. time. Just recorded whatever my pedometer said....Now I've got my stop watch in hand. It's great! I feel myself improving everyday!

    I am so jealous
    there was a time in my life I'd have had a good shot at being a long distance runner but as a bulemic I had an all or nothing mentality.
    I did more than I should have, longer than I should have, and on rougher terrain than I had business being on.
    I screwed up both my ankles and knees .
    It is so logical to start slow and build strength.

    my ill gotten advice
    lie low if it hurts and do something else to stay strong!
