On Your Mark...Get Set...Train!
It's official - training for the Indianpolis MiniMarathon has begun! I started yesterday with a one mile walk. That doesn't sound like much (& truthfully it didn't feel like much) but the program I'm participating in works on the principle of progressive overload. So I'd better hang on; it will definitely get more intense. As of right now I am training as a walker. My doc told me I could try running again starting March 1st. I'm going to try to take good care of my feet along the way so that I will be ready to run again. It feels good to have a goal to work for instead of just reminding myself that being active is good for my health. This will be my 3rd Indy Mini & I'm hoping my best time ever.
