Once a week I do Pilate's on a machine with a private trainer, who is does 1/2 iron man 2-3 time per year and runs marathons... I spoke to her about my running goals and her advise was to first address my old injuries by seeing a physiotherapist... preventing new injuries is part of my goal so I booked an appointment for physio... it's good, as I also need to take care of that knee or I won't be able to run long distances. I am also going to buy Spikys so I can run outside on the snow... After I get my health check from the the physio and my gear, I will make (and post) my outdoor running program... Very exciting! I have not told my friend (who is the inspirationfor my running) about my plans so if I succeed, it would be a total surprise to her :)
I am 41, mom of 2 (one is 20 years old and the other is just 26 months)... I have a busy life, crazy career and a New Year's resolution to go back to running regularly. My specific goals are: 1) to run 1000+ miles in 2010 and 2) to run several 10Ks this year... or even a 1/2 marathon... I started running when I was 30 and was quitting smoking... Actually, I started power walking at first (that was the only way to deal with the cravings) and then shortly after I was so in shape that I started running... after about a year of running I got bad knee injuries and stopped ... now I want to go back thanks to the inspiration I got from my friend Anne (see my first blog for her incredible story ).
