So, I've been attempting this running thing for the last few years, and failing miserably, over and over.
Here is what I have learned about myself over the last few years:
1. I suck at holding myself accountable
2. I need outside accountability
3. No matter how much I want to do something I need external support
I found out tonight that I can sign up for unlimited monthly child care at our gym, which costs only $4 more than taking my 3 kids once. So, this weekend, I'll be adding unlimited child care, so that the only limitation to my ability to work out is if child care is open or not.
The exciting news is that not having any timing stuff with me, just working at listening to Gene, I ran when he said to, walking when he said to. After all was said and done, I did 2 miles, averaged a 15:41 pace, which include 2 warm-up laps and 2 cool-down laps. That felt really good.
This is my base-line. I'm excited for the next few months and training for the Rock 'n Roll Chicago Half Marathon. I'm going to do measurements, and weight this weekend. I'm also going to walk the Publix Savannah Half Marathon to get a baseline time
I'll post more when I get done on Saturday afternoon.
