You can do it - just build up slowly. I am impressed you run 6 days a week - my body will only allow me 3 days a week. I need to add a lot more cross training into the mix. With your 10K in November you are definitely on your way. 2013 days ago
Thanks so much for your nice comment on my blog! I just saw it. What you said is so true, the Lord will strengthen you! Today is the 5th day I have not had sugar. I haven't had much trouble with it really. I believe the Lord must be helping me a lot! How do you manage your sugar intake nowadays? Do you just allow a little or none at all? I'm trying to figure out what I will be able to live with forever. I think one dessert per week may suit me. How do you do it? Thanks again! Your Friend, Mandy 2168 days ago
I have had the most success with running since I started in April. I enjoy it which is very important and it is really making a change in my body. I starve if I eat 1500 calories. I try to get down that low on some days but never do, especially when I run.
I have the same goal with the 10K by fall and a 1/2 one day ( I hope next year.) The trick with that one will be to find training time with 2 young kids so for now the focus is on the 10K by fall. I will probably end up doing my first 5K then also since its harder to find races in the summer but thats okay.
