Getting there...

11/14/13 | by Joe [mail] | Categories: Uncategorized

I'm 10 days into my new getting fit plan. I've worked out 9 of the last 10 days as I ease back into a steady routine. The intensity and length of my workouts are not where they will be in a month or so but I'm just getting back to the basics. Out of the 9 workouts, 7 have been at the new gym and have been a combination of the TM, stationary bike, and elliptical. Next week I will be for the 1st time incorporating an upper body strength and core routine to my schedule. Plan to do this on Mon. and Fri.

So far, I've dropped 7lbs.

Moving forward...

I had to come to grips with the fact that running simply doesn't do it for me at the moment. It took a long time to admit it but its the truth. I did some soul searching in an attempt to figure what I want to do next. I can't just sit around continuing to get fat. I must get it under control for several reasons....but mostly for my health. A new Planet Fitness opened up about a mile and a half from me and considering my budget is tight, the $1 sign up fee and $9.95 monthly fee was attractive. So.....I signed up!

I took a few weeks off in between my last run and the gym opening....and ate like a pig. I weighed in at a horrible 232lbsa week go. Just unacceptable in every way. I started at the gym the 2 day they were open and have made an effort to get mt eating habits under control. So far, I'm doing well. 6 straight days of work outs! I went to the gym for times and did a variety of TM, Elliptical, and Stationary bike work. I ran outdoors 1 day, 3 miles and jumped on the road bike one day for 23 miles. I've also lost 5lbs but I have a long way to go.



Doing a different Thanksgiving Day race....

I have decided to do the Fast Freddies 5 Miler in New Albany instead of the race at Iroquois Park. I decided to try this race bacuse the course is the same route I run on a regular. The fact it's only $17(without shirt) helps with that decision. Should be fun!

Right on schedule, Home Run 10K...Marathon next year

I have been right on schedule with my running this month. I set a goal and haven't missed a run. I also registered to run the Home Run 10K and I am super excited about that!

I have been brainstorming goals for next year and so far I have decided to run the Triple Crown and the KDF Marathon. After the marathon I will shift my focus to cycling and train for a century.

Races I want to run in the upcoming months:

Home Run 10K

Thanksgiving 5 Miler

Hangover Classic

Triple Crown Races


KDF Marathon

I'm going to be a runner again...

So, at the start of the month I decided to take a new approach to running. As someone who has accomplished more as a runner than I ever thought possible, I found myself constantly competing with the mileage I was doing a couple years ago only to be disappointed. What I had to come to terms with is the fact I am not the runner I was a couple years ago and I need to basically start over to be that runner again.

Moving ahead a couple weeks and I'll say this seems to be working. I've stopped worrying about what I'm capable of and started focusing on what I should and can do now. So with that said, I'm doing shorter distance runs and building from there. So far, so good....
