I haven't stopped. I may have slowed down a bit over the last few mnths but won't stop.
I have a couple goals in mind this year..first walk/run 2017 miles this year. That is about 5.5 miles a day. Does that mean I will get that a day no; but on average I hope too. I realize its a big goal but I need that to help me stay focused and driven.
My second goal is to be able to RUN a half marathon. Non stop,no walking by sept...I want to run in the quad city half.
The next goal is to get down to 265 or less by July 28th....this is the week i want to hike from crested butte to aspen. That is my big goal..one that all others will help me achieve...loosing weight and getting fit.
So with those goals in mind Im going to blog here of my adventures, my pictures and my progress. Some days wont be pretty while others will be amazing...but it all is an adventure.
On january 1st I did 3.3 mile run walk. It was as hard as I expected coming off a 3-4 week break of any running, but I felt good. There was more walking than running but I was happy I didnt have to start at 0 (running less than a min for me). it was more like 25%. My longest run to date none stop has been 6.5 miles..once at the end of November and that was at a 16+ min/ mile pace. Im not fast by any means..but i do get out there and do it.I
Today, I ran/walked 8.48 miles. I must say alot more walking than running! But I wanted to push myself. It was the coldest run Ive done...and lets not forget the fog/mist. But ohhhh my....the canal was beautiful. I was inspired by the bald eagles that were spooked out of their perch high in the trees...No second guessing just jump, spread their wings and soar.
How could I not feel inspired...like those eagles Im learning to jump. Im leaping off that branch of my comfort zone of my inactive life...speading my wings...soon I will be soaring.
