I finished week 3! I did not stop, I worked hard and did it. I am really excited/nervous for week 4. My brother finished it today and I am really proud of him.
At the Meyer Center where I workout one of the trainers run a program started by Jeff Galloway. It trains you for a Marathon! I contacted the trainer a few weeks ago and we talked yesterday. We talk and I told her where I was physically and what I am working towards and asked her if she realistically feels like I could do this program and be successful. She told me I would be.
So I am going to take the leap of faith and start with in May and train towards the Bass Pro Marathon in November. It is a 6 month program. I know it is very ambitious, but I know that if I train right and listen to my body, I can do it. Jeff Galloway focuses on Run/Walking the Marathon and doing it injury free. Sounds about right for me. The person in charge of the program here in Springfield seems like a lot of fun as well. Lets see how the cards fall. First thing first... 5k! Look out March 5th..
Edit: I forgot to tell everyone. Monday is my official weigh-in. I will be posting photos as well.
