It's Now or Never

Tonight I purchased a marathon training program. I chose the 20-week run/walk beginner program and I'm feeling really great about it. I can't even begin to convey what a huge sense of relief I'm feeling. In looking initially at the training, it actually looks manageable and like I can complete any workout that I do. It's a run/walk combo for the first few weeks and honestly I'm not thinking much beyond that.

A huge part of me feels like I haven't been entirely realistic about the training approach that I took initially. I tend to try and overlook my weight and how difficult that makes almost any activity that I do. And since I haven't been doing a very good job at sticking to any sort of a weight loss plan, I figured I needed to readjust my training plan. That's not to say that I'm not focused on my weight loss efforts, because I am, or should I say will be, but it does mean that I can breath a little easier now that I have a marathon training plan that truly makes sense for me and where I'm at.

A commitment that I do make is to use my blog more. To report on my workouts after each one. And to just be more present. After all, I will have a lot to report on as my training once and for all kicks into high gear!

More tomorrow after my first workout on the new training plan.
