So what can I say... I started with great expectations and well as you know life always gets in the way. I've been working out consistently and every day/week I increase my weights. My son was sick for what seemed like eternity and then there are always the vacations, school functions and home life that needed to be dealt with. But I am back on track and have been able to get outside and run the last month or so even in the snow... hasn't been super cold so my lungs are OK with things... you know you gotta keep them happy. lol
As I was saying I've been increasing my weights... quarter squats are now up to 215lbs... yes I am lifting that much which seems crazy but I am loving it. I love seeing my body change with the working out. Running wise I am officially registered for my first Half Marathon on July 1st... yes I am a little freaked out as that is 13.1 miles (21.1km). I am running the Color me Rad 5k race with my son end of June and then I have a group of 15 that is going to join me in August for a 6km Mud Hero Obstacle Race. Two of my races I am raising money for Cancer Research... have close family members battling the disease right now and friends that have gone thru it so I figure I am able to run I will run for them and help raise money along the way. I also had cancer when I was younger.
So with these races I am high into my training 5 days a week for now... Running up to 5k 2 days and working out 3 days... taking weekends off until I need to increase my running distances.
So wish me luck.... I am needing all that I can get right now!!
I am a single mom with one son that has been living with asthma since I was 2yrs old. I also almost died three times due to severe asthma attacks! I don't let my asthma stop me from accomplishing new goals and living life to the fullest.
