Fit Train Friday

Ok. All honesty here right?

I have started a serious running training program. I have been inspired by my favorite runner, Chicrunner, and I am determined to stick with this.

My long term goal is to be able to run a marathon.

Quit laughing. I am serious.

I'm starting at the very beginning. Like 2 mile distance beginning. So Monday and Wednesday I did my 2 miles. Tuesday and Thursday were "rest" days. Tuesday I headed to the gym and did the stairmaster for 10 minutes and the elliptical for thirty-five. Yesterday my friend Donner and I did the stairmaster for 50 minutes. 1665 steps. Know what that is?

Yep. We climbed to the top of the Eiffel Tower. We're in training for our (totally hypothetical) trip to Paris.

Clearly I'm not good at "resting".

Tonite is another 2 miles or 45 minutes of running. If I don't have a heat stroke doing this I will totally keep you updated on my progress.

Wish me luck. I totally need it.
