Back on Track

April 16, 2009 at 6:24 pm 3 comments

I finally got back on my exercise regimen of running again. After giving five messages at our Waypoint Winter Retreat on “Running the Race,” I finally repented and got back on the treadmill three weeks ago. Since every step is important, I am using 3-significant figures for my daily tally; well, unless if I gain some distance by rounding up. 😉

My goal is to get in shape to run the Davis Turkey Trot 10K this Thanksgiving (hopefully faster than a wild turkey!), followed by the Davis Stampede 1/2 Marathon in early 2010, and ultimately the Sacramento Marathon in December of 2010. I figured that might be the last time in my lifetime when I would be young enough and strong enough (& crazy enough) to run a marathon. But I have to take it step by step, mile by mile, one day at a time. (Oh, and I’ve been taking my vitamins as well; every extra riboflavin molecule helps!)

Guess what — I lost 5 pounds since I started!  But alas, at this Sunday’s picnic, I gained a couple back with the Evergood hotlinks that I had.  But it was good.  No, it was very good!  🙂  It’s going to cost me an extra 3 miles on the treadmill to burn it off, but it’s well worth it.

As I get older, I have to read Nutrition Facts labels and pay close attention to the serving size.  But one day, with our resurrected bodies, we won’t have to do all that.  Jesus tells us that Heaven will be like a banquet (and hopefully, a buffet!).  We’ll have all of eternity to eat as much as we want.  And since we’ll have enough time to exercise to burn off all that fat, it’ll be all good… evergood!

    Back on the track *sigh* I have a bet going with some of my friends at Waypoint and…I need to pay $10. 😦 But I did run last night and so that was good! Hoping to have some good fellowship with my buddies through this.

    How’s the training coming along? I have been training for a 100 miles bike ride end of June and I still feel very good. I just have to do it before reality and sanity catch up with me!

      Hi Kit,
      It’s been okay but I got to step it up a bit. I’ve racked up close to 50 miles so far and am averaging 2 miles per day. But this rate is not going to cut it, so I plan on running greater distances.
