I have this plan. I set this plan last year at the Every Stride 5k. I was going to run the 10k. And well, as most of you know once I say I am going to do something, I do it. So this October I am going to run the 10k............scary. I have been getting used to the distance by walking 1 mile, running 3 and then walking another for cool down. I know it is not 6.2 but I am building. My plan is to add half a mile of running a week and as long as we don't have another heat wave that makes me feel like I am living in the bowels of hell I should be ok. We made a last minute choice to run the Metro Cruise Run so that will at least give me a little race feel before October.
I am still slow but sure on the weight loss front. 185 lost!!!! 8 pounds until I reach the magic number I picked out of the sky over 2 years ago. That will not be my goal weight. All together I feel 23 pounds until I can practice maintenance. I can wear my husbands jeans ! That is huge considering they are 32's and I no longer panic when I circle size medium for my race t-shirts. My rings were sized down 3 sizes and my skin is getting better. Not great but better. So much change from will power, strength and determination leaves me feeling pretty damn good about things lately.
