I am definitely getting into this running thing. By getting onto a more regular schedule, I have been able to stave off shin splints while truly looking forward to each runs. Running in the cold is not an issue anymore, as I’ve learned how quickly you warm up. I’ve even been able to push myself by running on some larger hills. As I progress away from the intervals, I find that I really enjoy these longer running times. Of course, I continue to use stress from work as a motivator. You’d be surprised how one little sentence can fuel me for ten minutes!
As for the weight loss, I’ve decided to join Weight Watchers Online after the new year. Jim upped the ante by declaring that not only would he help me by unofficially following the plan, he would buy me two pairs of Lucky jeans when I make my weight goal. So, 134 or bust come January 1!
