It seems as soon as this old face hit 63, everything started to feel harder?
Maybe it’s something that has gradually been happening, this happening….and I just didn’t notice? I’m old so that happens…..My get up and go seems to have gotten up and left….at least some days?
I’m finally feeling my oats, Sunday’s run, and today was a good, and opened my eyes to what I love to do….besides sitting in front of the TV constantly, and using this couch as my happy place, yes, I could watch the Defenders or the Titans or whatever over and over again, but as soon as I get out the door and start moving……it feels so good!……just moving…
Running feels so good and so right…..and yeah, a half marathon right now seems do-able…..I’m at my beginning…..17 weeks to go, but yeah, even today, I’m sure I could have gone longer and would have felt all right baby alright……
I keep digging through this, it’s become like my bible….I know Margaret Webb was using writing the book about her most fit year ever as a woman in her 50s, and sharing all she learned from so many along the way, but, so much of what she tracks and writes I think helps all………..a lot of revelations, and using science……so will use what she learned a lot……her most fit year ever, maybe I can do this for my best year as a 63 year old…..I’ve never been 63, so who knows….we’re 11 days into 2022, and my 63 year…..so I’ve had a good start……the first goal, the BMO Vancouver Half Marathon on May 1st……..to build the confidence and the strength to be able to do that, and then work on another goal afterward, with, well, how about the Victoria Marathon in October?….
But one step at a time young Luke Skywalker?……let’s get to the end of this month, and the end of 5 months……….as what happens will happen, what will, will be?
Today’s run, 4.28K, the pace was soooo slooowwww, 7.10, I’ve gotta pick that up…..will shoot again on Thursday, and see what happens…..
