Well this is me and my starting point. As you can see in my current state im just a regular guy. I dont work out. Sex is my only exercise(and not a super regular thing) Ive changed to a desk job so i just sit and work all day and dont do nearly as much hard labor as i used to. So i need to get in shape right? OH i know how!? On April 7th of this year ill be running the Crescent City Classic 10k fun walk run race in New Orleans, Louisiana. It will be the second time ive ran it. The first time i ran it in 1 hour and 24 minutes. 10k is 6.2 miles btw. So last time i ran the first 5k(3.1 miles) and then i was totally gassed. I pushed myself to the finish. I averaged 13.5 minutes/mile. This year i plan to run ten minute miles which will put me under an hour hopefully. This is a huge improvement. So i need to straight training and get in shape before easter. (also come up with a costume/theme to run in) Today i ran a mile on my treadmill before i got dizzy and almost passed out because i was hungry. So i found out a gym that im already a member of in reston has a location in alexandria where i work. So ill be going to check out their personal training specials and go a few times a week. Part of running is increasing your power to weight ratio. Just like in race cars. I need to be lighter and toned to go the distance. Im not really gonna change my diet too much because i dont really eat terrible things or over eat. Im ready to make this change in my life. Ive been in shape before when i played soccer for a few years and it felt really good. I want that feeling back. So in april ill be in new orleans with candy, my sister and her boyfriend. Itll be nice to travel with someone finally. Ive been so alone travelling. Candy is going to start training too and shes been a great motivator for me to make a lotttt of positive changes in my life. Anyways before i drone on about how lovely she is. THIS IS ME. ZERO. All up hill from here. Ill post updates everyonce in awhile on how im doing. No going back now. This is on the internet its immortalized. If i dont accomplish my goal and i dont stick to my work out plan rub this in my face. Tips/Advice/Jeers? Hit the ask?
