Time to lace up the shoes again

After taking a much longer than intended break from running I have decided to lace up my running shoes again and hit the pavement(or belt.)

Last weekend I started looking for races to run. But a lot of the 2011 races haven't been announced. I did decide that the main racing goal would be a 10 miler. I hope to run the Cherry Blossom 10 miler, but I have to win a lottery to get a spot, so we will see. I might have to wait a few weeks and run the GW Classic 10 miler.

I am considering and half marathon late summer, but it needs to be local. No spending money on hotels this year.  Disney will probably have to wait another year. :-/

Hopefully come January we can start p90x back up, but on a less intense level since I will be running a lot too.

I did yoga this afternoon when I got home from work. I really need a good video that I like to do for yoga. I always feel good after doing it, but sometimes yoga on the wii pisses me off. I checked out a couple from the library. Maybe I will like one and then I can order it from

Also, going back to no soda. I have been drinking way too much. I have 0 self control, so I always fail at only having one glass when out (plus half the time the waiter just brings a refill instead of asking, which most people would like, I however, would rather ask for water)

So my training plan is written - and I am ready to go!

GPS watch

I might have mentioned a while ago about how I wanted a GPS watch. I just haven't broken down and bought one (or been given one for a gift- hint hint family hint hint.)

Ray of DC Rainmaker is giving away a Garmin 210 - I have been eying this watch for a while now as it is seems to be around the level of what I need. I don't need anything super fancy since I am just a beginner runner.

I am hoping I can win this watch - but I probably won't and maybe one day I will buy myself one. Maybe when uncle sam returns some of the money he takes from my paycheck every 2 weeks.

Next week I hope to start a new training plan. p90x is on hold probably until the end of the year. The reason? Well we stopped because of traveling and what not - and next week I bring home the christmas tree (which is stored at my grandparents from Jan - thanksgiving) With the christmas tree up I can't rearrange the furniture. January 2011 I will make us do it. Hear that Matt, we are getting back at it and not giving it up until we are ripped. (HA!)
