Back in the Saddle Again

Running, here I come again!

Like last summer, I'm venturing to become a runner. I lost all progress from last summer, so I'm starting from step 1 again.

Today was easier than the start last summer. I walked 1/4, ran at 4.5-5.0 for 1/2, walked 1/4, ran 1/4 at 4.5, walked 1/4, ran almost the whole next 1/4 at 4.5, and then walked the last 1.4/ Did 2 miles in 30 minutes. Far from competition, but it's a start. Last summer, I was able to run 2 complete miles without stopping. This summer, my goal is 3 miles. I haven't decided whether or not I'll do a 5K at some point towards fall. I have a lot of work to do before thinking about that.

My parents are in town today, so calories are not counted, but portions are being watched. Tomorrow, it's crack down. I'm in two weddings this summer and I don't want to be the flubby, chubby bridesmaid.

Stay tuned. Stats coming tomorrow. I rushed to clean before the parents got here this morning, so I didn't get it done then.
