Building Up

Joined SparkPeople at the beginning of 2011. I've been running for about 20 years. Started running long in 2004 and did my first marathon in 2005. The last two years of running have been difficult. Maybe I'm burned out. Anyway decided I needed to start over. I am focusing on improving my diet, loosing some weight and slowly increasing my running distance and pace.

Joined SparkPeople at the beginning of 2011. I've been running for about 20 years. Started running long in 2004 and did my first marathon in 2005. The last two years of running have been difficult. Maybe I'm burned out. Anyway decided I needed to start over. I am focusing on improving my diet, loosing some weight and slowly increasing my running distance and pace. I've also changed from doing an all run to doing a 5 run/1 walk. This is what I did for my first and fastest marathon. Last Sunday I ran my first 5K of the year. Came in second in my age group, 60 to 65. I run about a 12 minute pace, so not much competition in this run. Aiming to run a 10K the end of February.
Here it is May already. My wife and I are getting ready for the Missoula Montana Half Marathon on July 7th. I completed my 10K in February. My training seems to be going according to my plan I'll run about 11 miles this weekend. My concern is the 74 degrees and probably 100% humidity here in Houston on Saturday morning at 6:00. If I am successful I know I can complete another half marathon. I'm getting stronger again. My pace is improving each week, especially on my shorter weekday runs. Looking forward to the continued challenge.

Fitness Minutes: 67,891

My Goals:
Loose a few pounds: started at 180 on 1/1/11.
Aiming for 168. Okay, so I hit my 168 pound goal. So, let's try for 163 pounds. I weighed 158 as a senior in high school. I don't have any desire to go below 158.
I have the capability I just need the knowledge to eat better.

Running: would like to run a marathon again in 2012.

My Program:
Go to the gym 3 days a week. I'm trying out all of SparkPeople's suggested strength workouts. Then plan to put together a workout that focuses on one area each day; upper, lower and full body.
I run 4 days a week, short during the week and longer on Saturdays. My longest run this year was 3.5 miles.

Personal Information:
Living in Houston, TX. has it's advantages, especially during our mild winters, but summers can be tough.

Thanks for the comment. I like bananas. I eat one almost every day. Maybe my potassium is really off.

Thanks for the comment on my page. I do plan to have fun and not go for PR. I going to enjoy the weather, and use it as a tempo training run. This campus neighborhood where the race is, I run many Sundays, so it will feel just like training with 300 other runners.

Have a great weekend, and enjoy the holidays.

Thanks for your comment on fitbit one. I'm finding a lot of people have trackers. I, however, won't be buying one soon. After deliberation, I decided that since I just started back with the gym last week, I wlll be putting my energies into consistent and semi-hard working gym visits. The fitbit might come later.
