While wrapping up the Holiday season, I’m sure I’m not the only one that feels a bit on the over stuffed side…lol! I love the end of the year Holidays but at the same time dread the feeling of so much sugar and crap going into my system. Could I avoid eating this stuff?? Why yes! Why the hell would I want to do that to myself though?! It’s really the only time of year I get crazy and eat everything, so what the heck!
Moving on…the new year is approaching quickly and I have races to run! I’ve decided to change-up my diet, drop 15 lbs. and get leaned out so that I can speed up! I do this pretty much every year but this year it’s more important to me than others. I have dedicated my time and efforts to Mobile Meals of Toledo and don’t want to let them down. Cleaning up my eating and doing regular exercise is just an investment in my own health anyway! I plan on sticking around for years to come and I have mountains to climb yet!
The gym will be a 3 day a week thing for me. Push movements, pull movements and leg day! Running will move to a 3-5 day a week depending on how I feel and races. I’ll keep one run a week as a long run and the rest will just be maintenance. Dropping the extra weight will also give my joints a break and help me to recover quicker. Less weight to lug around means less hurt!
I urge all of you to make a plan for this next year and go for it! Bodies were made to move! Don’t buy into the lay around and do nothing thing. It’s just a slow and terrible way to rot away. I don’t care what you do as far as exercise…just move! Invest in you! If you’re doing something, grab a friend and get them moving with you! Invest in their health, make a difference in their life. Remember to just keep moving! Join the Zombie Runvolution!!
I received a GoPro type camera for Christmas so look out! Youtube videos will be added to the runzombierun.net websit in January! There’s a head strap and a chest strap for the camera as well, so this should be fun! When I run, hike, race or just go on a training run, you just might see some of it! I’ve seen some wonderful sights in my life and look forward to many more. Now, you’ll get to see them as well! Happy Running Everyone!
