More Training

Well things are going well.
I took a little time at lunch today and ran for about a half an hour. I was suppose to run last night but I had a Church League Softball game last night so I was fairly tired.
I have been waking up about 45 mins early every morning for the past week and working out with Maya (My Fitness Coach on the Wii). I have been feeling very good lately and have started to drop some of the extra pounds.
I am running in my third race this Saturday, a 10k part of the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival. It should be a good time. I am hoping that some of my extended family will be there. I just hope that the rain will hold off.
I am not sure what my next race will be. There are a couple of possible upcoming races this summer that I am looking to do, mainly 5ks, along with a half marathon or two.
Thanks for reading.
More to come.

Well I ran last night and then did some cardio work. I am feeling pretty good except that my left foot is starting to hurt. I am sure that it is not Plantar Fasciitis as my heel or arch does not hurt, it is mainly the part of my foot just behind my toes. I have done some reading and I believe that I should be able to get some relief from some foot pads. It seems funny to me that one foot would hurt but not the other. Well I will pick up some foot pads and see where that gets me.
I ran 3.11 miles last night and it was my fastest recorded 5k at 35 mins. I am looking to get this down to under 30 min. I have a 10k coming up on May 2nd but have not commited to anything beyond that. Looking at a couple of 5k's over the summer. I am going to be starting a training plan for a Marathon but again have not committed to anything yet.
Oops, I almost forgot the World Wide Festival of Races in Oct. I signed up for the half marathon.
I guess that slipped my mind as there is no entry fee and I get to run it wherever I am for that day.
More posts to come.

Taking the dive

Well I have done it. I have thought about it for a while and I have created a blog page.
This is actually going to be more of a public journal specifically geared toward my training. Training for what you ask? Well my running. I will get into more of that later.
My plans are to provide updates weekly on my goals and my training and how things are going.
Today is Good Friday and there are a lot of activities planned with the family this weekend. I hope to get a run or two in this weekend but we shall see.
Thanks for reading.
