I’m Back!

July 17, 2012

I took a long break from both running and blogging but I’m back and ready to conquer the world – or at least my waistline!

Since I stopped running I have gained back a lot of weight.  Basically I’m where I started, but I’m also more determined then ever to get where I want to be.  My goal is to get to a weight/size/health that I’m happy with before I hit 30 in 2 and a half years.  I think that should be plenty of time.  I’d rather go into my 30s with my diet and exercise lifestyle being just that – not a new challenge but my lifestyle.  

Now to the point of this post – I’ve registered for my first half marathon.  It’s not until February of 2013 though so I’ve got time to train.  Since I’m starting over right now I’m just walking and getting back into working out.  I started the 30 Day Shred and have been walking 3 days a week (I did run a little today).  In a couple of weeks I hope to start the couch to 5k which is what I used to run my first 5k. Then I’ll progress to a 10k and finally start really training for my half marathon. 

I’m really looking forward to the challenge, having a race really helps me keep up with my running so I’m glad I took the plunge and signed up.  

Has anyone else run a half marathon? Any training tips?
