Fatty McButterpants

For those of you who watch King of Queens you willl get the reference.

The journey to running continues if but slowly. So far my frequency is about once a week give or take. This is the week to start making it a regular weekly occurance.

The good news is that I seem to be maintaining my fitness - not improving it of course. The circuit I run is near my house in Lakeridge Park along a nice forested path known as Dead Horse Canyon. I live on a hill so it's downhill to the park but the park goes back uphill along a small stream - it's not an easy incline and within a few minutes I'm at my aerobic threshold. Once out of the park it's uphill to home with the invariable walk uphill. Today, however, I made it up to the stairs which is as far as I've made it without walking in awhile. The goal for the next month is to complete the circuit without stopping.

I think some indoor treadmill is in order - that or a flatter course elsewhere. After a month of regular short runs it will then be time to start working on distance.

That's all for now - I just wanted to get my goals on paper so I have something to look back on :-)
