Now that the better weather seems to be upon us (knock on wood) and outdoor activities can resume, I'm considering attempting this whole "running" thing again. While I absolutely hate it, I've worked my way up to 5 minute spurts with walking in between on a treadmill doing the C25K program. Once (and only once) I actually ran 20 minutes straight and that about killed me... but i'm hoping taking the activity outdoors can help.
While I try to take the pups with me to the mall, i feel that while I'm "learning" to run - i may need to focus on that and now the two crazy dogs going every which way and trying to eat anything they find while on our walks/runs...
So i'm looking to my readers for advice on this. I'm not a runner. I can elliptical until the world ends, but i know that incorporating a 3 mile run 3x a week could change up my work outs drastically and actually make a huge difference.
Also, a couple other Health resolutions is to try to do more yoga. Currently, I take a Monday night class, but i'd like to do a little more - this will depend on my fave yogi's schedule - but that doesn't mean i can't do 15-20 minutes of sun salutations while at home to help me warm up or warm down from a work out.
I'd like to get the puppies out more... with the nice weather so they can get out and see some sun. When it gets too hot, its hard for them, but i do think they would enjoy more nice weather.
Diet wise, I'm going to try to eat smarter. Really focus on what is going into my body... but that's a hard resolution that will take daily reminders.
Do any of you have any new goals now that the weather is getting nicer? Any advice to help stick to them?
