Sorry, no. My Marathon was in Washington, DC, and we had snow there. If I ever had to run in snow here in San Diego, I think I would die from shock. *laughing*

And post marathon, I totally missed this thread and a November challenge. I'll start a new thread for 2012 challenge discussion.

Thanks.

What a guy! Snow in San Diego?
I made my 1200 minutes with 34 left over.
Any challenges for November?

955 minutes down, 245 left for October. No sweat, or rather, plenty of sweat, but I think I'll make the goal.

So far so good. I weighed myself on Sunday and lost another pound. At this rate I am sure to be below 200 for the family reunion next year.

650 minutes down. 550 to go. Desert hike this AM. To trainer at Gold's the afternoon. MD told me Friday I was healthier than I was a year ago. He was the one who originally recommended this website. Spark works (if you work it).

My "rehab" plan to monitor for October (based on premise that I what I can change is taking responsibility for the effort but letting go of the outcome):

* 1200 fitness minutes (including 2 sessions/week with trainer)
* gym, or equivalent, six days/week
* track nutrition & fitness daily
* aim for daily calorie range: 1200-1500
* watch out for food payoffs for fitness minutes
* practice gratitude

I have really been struggling with my eating, my workouts, and my attitude. And it shows in my body right now. I feel like a slug. My energy levels are down, my weight is up, and my moods are all over the place. But that ends now. (Actually, it ended last night when I made myself go on a late night, 6 mile run as penance for being a crabby jerk all day.)

On October 30th, I will be in Washington, DC, running the Marine Corps Marathon. It will be the most physically, mentally, and emotionally challenging thing I have ever done. And make no mistake. I WILL finish every single step of that event.

To do that, I need to get myself back on track. And it starts with specific goals and a plan of action.

October Goals: 1500 fitness minutes, healthy eating, run a marathon
Action Plan: Run 3x week and bike 2x week, track my eating, and meditate for focus

That is my plan for October. What's yours?
