Sunday, March 06, 2016      3 comments

Seems like I'm always making a new start, but every day when your trying to be healthy is a new start correct. Let's say I eat that donut. I can start new again after eating by NOT eating the second donut. It seems like I reach that plateau and ... Read more

Tonight was a four mile run. I'm training like I'm planning on running. SO I run for two miles and then walk one minute. This will give me time to stop and drink at all the stops. Then when I get to the last mile, I bump up the speed because the... Read more
