I joined SP several years ago when I was approaching the BIG FIVE-O, with a goal of becoming healthier. I've learned there is no end point to that goal and I continually strive for a healthier lifestyle.
First and foremost - LOG
Listen to both my mind and body equally
Did a Whole30 in June 2014, now eating mostly paleo and loving it
I'm a 55 year-old retiree, who found a new passion in running only a few years ago. I hope I can continue to nurture that passion, even if it means changing the way I do it. I've been married for 30 years to a wonderful man who gave me three amazing step-children and seven grandchildren.
Currently maintaining weight, recovering from two ankle and one knee surgery in 2013 - along with a rather traumatic bowel resection in January 2014. Getting back into strength training and running in 2014 and loving the feeling of getting stronger again.
Sorry to hear that you are still frustrated with the garmin! Still enjoying the 220. It doesn't have a multimsport function, if I bike with it, I have to edit the event on garmin connect to change it to a bike after the fact. Take care!
Training for NYC Marathon. I did The Plan last year during training season and I know that it kicked my butt when it came to long runs and/or speed. I didn't get my energy back until November. Because I'm injured this year, I'm not worrying at all about speed, so I think it will go easier this time. Plus I've pretty much been on The Plan so not eating all that many carbs. I'm not going extremes with this, just eating clean.
If four years is experienced, then maybe. What I probably am is finally at the point where I'm going to accept that I have limitations, and if I listen to the advice of those with knowledge, I'll be able to continue doing what I want longer. I didn't get here willingly, LOL. It took a number of injuries.
