|Will these be mine?|
My big goal for 2015 is to train for a full marathon! I don't feel sure enough as of yet to say I will complete a full marathon, but my goal is to start training and explore the possibility. Over the past three years, I have completed 17 half marathons. When I made the goal three years ago to complete a
half marathon, I never really had any doubt that I could do it. I knew that I would have to work hard, but I knew I could do it. With all of this running under my belt, I know taking on a full marathon is a completely different animal. After finishing a half marathon, I typically feel fairly well--but there is no way I could turn around and run another 13.1 miles. This is what has me terrified to say that I will do a full marathon.
To take on this huge goal, I need to lose weight! I have a brand new workout plan to start tomorrow. I will be doing PiYo by Chalene Johnson. PiYo is a combo of Pilates and yoga. Along with some running mixed in, this will be a great start to my training. I plan to work hard for the next three with PiYo, clean eating and running--with the goal of losing 25 pounds. I will reassess in April (when Disney Marathon registration opens up) taking into account how my training is going and where I am mentally. Wish me luck! This is something I really want to do.
I need a big goal, something big to work toward. This just may be it. Nothing gets me going like the chance at another Disney experience!
