Running.. it isn’t enough..


So, I have been running lately – but I don’t htink that is quite enough to really prepare myself for the marathon.  So here are some other things I have been contemplating:

Dieting – It is easier to move a lighter weight, then a heavier weight (see what public schools taught me?)  So, I have started using “calorie counter” on my phone to track what I eat.  This way I can try and get rid of the spare tire I have been working on.. After all, spare tires are for cars and bikes – not runners.

Core Strength – Well, like most people – I hate situps and pushups.  But they are two great methods for working on core strength so I am beginning to implement them into my daily routine.  I have tried the “hundredpushups.com” and “twohundredsitups.com” challenges in the past – but never finished them.  I think it is time to revisit this. 

Other workouts – I won’t join a gym at this time – because I don’t think I will go.  When I can consistently get up and run at 5am every morning (or 3-4 times a week), I will revist the idea.  But, we do have EA Active 2 for the PS3.  Suprisingly this does a great workout – including core as well as various muscle groups.  This is going to become my non-running day workout.

Overall, I hope that the marathon preparations will not just let me run 26.2 miles – but will put me in fantastic shape!

About

I run, because I am a runner. Having realized that I have always "been a runner" - even when I went years with out running, I am learning how it has integrated itself in all aspects of my life. When I started running in highschool, my perspective on life changed. Funny that I didn't realize how much it had affected it until just recently.
