That New, Old Feeling!
Weight 297 lbs
Well, here we go again. After a couple of setbacks I have that new, old feeling again. The new feeling of being really excited about working out and running again. I decided that after the injury and diet set backs I would start over with the running plan too, but at a slightly higher pace this time.
The first run again! Oh yeah I remember that terrible feeling of the first few minutes. However, this go around I am feeling stronger than before and only the first 6 minutes were terrible instead of the entire run, after the first 6 minutes that great old feeling started coming back. That relaxed feeling of just running and letting my mind become clear again. I guess the work that I put in before has started to pay off as I start the second round of running at a higher pace.
I did realize that in order to prevent another injury I needed to get stronger overall. Brooke at Team Speed offered the opportunity to train with her in her boot camps. Of course I was saying to myself, "Boot camps are for girls!" Uh, well, if the girls are crazy strong and in better shape than I am right now, then yes, it's for girls. Brooke's boot camp is a serious butt kicker, I was still sore 2 days after the class, I think the combination of the strength training and running will really kick my body over and beyond the many plateaus I've encountered. So, in addition to the running starting again, I have joined Brooke's boot camps and added weight training in too. Now on to my overall lifestyle change, I'm back to getting my diet sorted out again too. Before we all know it my clothes will start fitting better again. Thanks for reading and lookout for my diet update next week.
