I know Fall is very busy for runners, and I do have a few fun 5K's that I would like to do, but I'm just not into the racing season as much as I was last year.
I am aiming for the Cowtown half (which is in February) as being my next half, and I'm hoping I can be ready by then.
Even with the little running I've been doing, I feel like I'm getting a bit faster because of the weight lifting. I know so many people who have said it really does help a runner. I just always said...Yeah Yeah, I know, but I HATE weight lifting! It's so boring!...But it's not anymore! And to see it benefit my 1st love of running has made me want to do it even more! :)
I haven't even mapped out a training plan yet, but I'm pretty sure I want to do a Jeff Galloway training plan with running and walking. I just seem to do better with some walking breaks in there! :)
So I have to admit...typing all that out has made me so excited for this half!! Yay!!
Oh how I love running! Especially in the Fall!
I will soon be teaching a Couch to 5K program for Stroller Strides and I am SOOOO excited about this!
I can't wait to show them all how fun running can be!
If you have any coaching experience and have any words of advice or wisdom for me, please share!
This is a new journey for me, but I can't wait for it to start!
As for the weight loss front.
I have actually gained more weight and still not seeing results.
I guess my next step is to go see a doctor.
I don't like doctors. lol
I guess I'm afraid of what they will tell me.
And yes I know how ironic it is that I'm a nurse that doesn't like doctors or modern day medicine!
I would just like to do everything as natural as possible at first.
That's why I don't want to do pills or shakes.
But now that I've exhausted all of that, guess it's time to suck it up and go!
I'm ready for some answers!!!
I'll let everyone know if I actually get the courage to go!
For now, I will just enjoy feeling better and keep on doing what I love!
Running and Weightlifting!
