I just responded to your other post:-) I am training for Robie Creek! Only 4 more weeks! I have done the Famous Potatoe Half a couple of years ago! It was nice, but I had done Robie a few weeks before, so I was a little drained! Good Luck! You will have a blast and it is so nice to have everyone along the course cheering you on! I remember little kids giving high fives:-)
Welcome to SP! You've taken some good steps toward regaining your health. Excellent goal, and good strategy on using the treadmill. Does the Y have a babysitting service you can use? Maybe that would give your little ones a chance to be around others while you have some 'me' time alone in the gym or pool. You can do it!
February of 06, my husband passed away. I spent my grieving time just walking. I would walk around my neighborhood twice a day. Sometimes three. After awhile, I would move my route to the Camelsback Park and do that in the mornings when i get up and again after dinner. i felt like I was in the best shape ever.
Unfortunately, I haven't done that for three years. Since then, I met my sweetie at school and we both have two sons together. I know I can't shed these baby pounds overnight but I lack a support team. What better support than you guys?
I decided to register for the 32nd annual idaho famous potato half marathon and following a training schedule to help me prepare for it. I have a treadmill here at home and it seems like the only time i can use it is when the kids go to bed. I am looking into membership at the YMCA. The weather is warming up and soon i will have a double jogging stroller for my boys.
instead of just losing pounds, my goal is to fit in a single digit sized jeans. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
