5K, here I come, again…

18 02 2013

…so last week my daughter and I started to train for a 5K, sort of. We walked 3x last week, and we are going to be walking 3-5x this week, while increasing our mileage and/or adding a small amount of jogging/running.

I want to make sure that whatever we do, we are able to continue moving forward with it. I am one of those strange people who actually enjoys working out, but getting started is simply not fun. I have to enjoy the process, or I’ll be starting again in a month or two. If you read this post, please jump on the bandwagon and either join in, or push me to keep going.

Today is going to be a walk around the block (1.7 miles), and a short strength training session of some sort. I did play tennis yesterday, and I won 6-3, 7-5 during a pretty tough match. Tomorrow is going to be another walk and possibly tennis drills at night. I will see how my legs react to yesterday and today.

I don’t care if I ever have a 6 pack again, but I most certainly want to know what it feels like to be fit. My initial goal is going to be 250 lbs. I’m starting this time at 275. Here’s to a successful journey.

You can do it, brother… And this time get that bike out! I burned 80 pounds worth last season.

Thanks for stopping back in. The bike will be coming back out, because I really want to get back into triathlons.
