So 2015 has passed and is one for the record books. It was a mixed year with a lot of stress and I had to go through eye surgery to remove cataracts twice. But from a health point of view, other than the eye surgery, it has been a very good year. We’ve both lost weight and we’ve both gotten much more active. Now it’s time to ramp it up.
In order to make sure I don’t lose my focus I have set myself a goal of running 700 miles this year. As someone on Twitter pointed out, it’s the equivalent of me running to Pittsburgh and back! It’s a daunting number but my runs are starting to get longer now so I know it’s doable. I’ve already run twice this year. I ran 6 miles on January 1st, to start the year off right. And then on the 3rd I ran 8 miles. So I only have 686 miles to go.
Christine loves working out at the gym. When she first started going she could only lift 20 lbs. Now on some of the machines she can lift 90 or even 100 lbs! I’m going to have to work to keep up with her! While I also use the weight machines, I spend more time doing cardio, especially the Dreadmill. For some reason I have a block with that. I ran 4 miles on it last week and that took everything I had. I can run further outside than I can on the treadmill. Maybe it has something to do with boredom. I need to buy something so I can listen to music while on the treadmill.
We both want to wish our followers a Happy New Year and we look forward to sharing our health journeys over the coming year. Do you have goals set for the year ahead? We’d love to hear them!
