Pondering a New Goal
Thursday, February 21, 2013
What, me run another race? At my age?
I'm thinking of it.
Just by way of background, in my younger days I became an avid amateur runner, about the time I turned 40. I did all kinds of races and even completed six marathons. But lately the years have kept me from being able to run more than about a quarter mile at a time without getting strange pains in my lungs--a burning sensation. I can do aerobic step classes, zumba, and spinning without pain, but running is another story.
However...if I can increase my aerobic training and gradually build up my distance, maybe, just maybe, I can do another race. Even if I have to run/walk, it would be a goal worth pursuing, both for fitness and for my mental health.
Anyone want to join me?
