There are a lot of things that I have wanted to work on and improve, that I am hoping this blog will help me achieve. One of my goals is:
Running! – After completing a half-marathon last year, I ended up with plantar faciitis. Not fun! It involved weeks of painful walking, the loss of cute shoes, and a needle in the sole of my foot. Now that it has been several months, I’m looking to get back in the habit. I’m signed up for a 5k race in Disneyland (!!!) in November, as well as the local Turkey Trot.
There’s lots of time to build up to something as managable as a 5k, but I want to make sure my feet can handle it, and I can take breaks in training in needed. So far I am up to week 2, day 2 of the Couch to 5K App. C25K is the tool I have used every time I have started running. Yes, every time. Since about 2010 I have been trying to be a runner, but I’ve never managed to be consistent. Usually the event I’m working towards ends and then I get distracted or just lazy and no longer make the time a priority. That’s the key, prioritizing time! Next time I’ll share a video I’ve been using to help set goals. More to come!
