Injuries in the month of June, a new job role, birthday parties, my daughter performing in a gymnastics competiton and the World Cup slowed my progress, but I'm hoping that by writing this blog I'll create a contract to get me back on track.
Running and gym work have been put to one side due to ankle problems, which require me to see a specialist in July. I'm focussing on improving my nutrition, reducing my weight and continuing with my swimming and walking to get myself better conditioned.
I'm motivated by reaching 2/5 of my target for the run within the first couple of months. With 3 to go I should achieve it and make a great contribution to this research. Hopefully Dad would be proud (little tear appeared there).
Starting reading SJ Scott's 10,000 steps which says that if I can achieve this number of steps per day I'll be able to lose about a pound of weight per week. This would be my target before I start that run on September 14th.
Now I've found this blog page I'll try and update more regularly so that when I'm losing direction or need a kick to keep going you'll all tell me to think about the cause.
