And so a few weeks back, I decided to join a friend in her quest for fitness. My main goal was to loose the pudding that I put on when I had my daughter. But the opportunity to participate in the Mother's Day Classic appeared, and both of us thought "why not!". It is 8 weeks away and the best case scenario, is that we make it around the Tan in one piece. The worst case scenario, we 1/2 jog and 1/2 walk. So to aid us in our quest, we meet weekly at a gym to work out and now we have something to train towards.
Tonight I ran for 3 minutes on the treadmill (I can hear you laughing at me ..). Now I know that running on a tready and running outside is different, but it is a start. I need to strengthen my cardio-vascular system, my muscles and my breathing as well.
Fitting in training around work and Tori is going to be fun, but I have worked out a few destinations that might encourage me. On a Saturday morning, a latte is 0.8kms away, my training partners house is 3.4kms away and my closest material store is 1.7kms away. Don't you just love whereis!
A few blogs and podcasts I have come across along the way; Penguins Don't run, Steve Runner Phedippidations Podcast (a bit quirky, but I quite enjoy it) and fitness guru post on runing music.
