What’s next now that I have done something I didn’t think I could?
Do it again, of course!
I have a couple of goals I’m working on now.
First up is focusing on losing some weight. Although I’d heard the rumors, I was a little disappointed that I didn’t lose anything (even seemed to gain a couple), while training for the half. Not cool. It’s got to go!! And for me, that means exercising consistently and watching what I eat consistently, and more. I’ll share a little of what I do for both in future posts.
I want to run another half. The Lincoln Marathon is in May and it sells out every year. For being a small town in Nebraska, it does a great job. They will have 12,500 participants this year. I really felt like I left some on the table this first go round, and now I want to do more. I will try to get in as soon as registration opens up.
In the meantime, I’ve been working on strength and yoga to help out my knee and getting out there a couple times a week for a couple miles. I ran a 4 mile trail run a few weeks ago, and it was painful. I’d like to stay at being able to run 5 miles any given week. Next weekend, I’m doing a Ugly Sweater 5k with some friends. Should be a good time!
What are your winter plans? How has running and weight loss worked for you?
