5 more days to go on my diet and run recovery. I am using a physician’s weight loss diet and am now at 182 lbs which is the least I’ve weighed since college. It is going to be great to run again knowing that I have about a bowling ball less weight to run with.
I am a bit worried about getting running after my diet. Mainly I know I’ll have to go slow since I’ve had almost no fat or carbs for a while. I tend to want to push the envelope a lot and I want to be sure I don’t do that.
TJ is working with me on a running plan for our next race. It is going to be the “Spring Scramble” in the first week of April. This was our first 5K we ran after we began to run in March of last year.
Wow, a whole year is almost up. I began running on March 25, 2012. Is amazes me how far TJ, RS and I have come in a year. Looking back at our first 5K, I barely finished in 32 minutes. My goal for this year is to finish in the 20 minute area. I am sure with TJ’s help, I’ll get somewhere close.
Life is always an adventure if you make it one. That is why “I love running”. Running is all about getting out there and doing it. It is up to me to run. Sometimes things get in the way like injuries or other responsibilities, but for the most part If I run, I do better at running. If I run, I feel better about myself. If I run, I feel like I have accomplished something.
The more I run, the more I love running.
