Ok, so I’ve been really bad recently. No big surprise if you’ve been keeping up with my blog. I’ve been slacking for a while. And besides, when I’m not posting…that’s a bad sign. It means I’ve got nothing good to report.

Well, I’m heading out to the woods to camp for a week, so I made the decision that until I get back from there, I’m not accountable for anything that I do. This may mean that I come back with some more weight on me. It may mean that I come back a little more out of shape than I am now. But that’s ok. Because as soon as I get back I’m kicking my ass into high gear. Time to get serious again. I’m going to start a running training program. It’s going to be ridiculously hard, but it’s something I really want to do. So here’s the formula, each to be done 3 or 4 times per week…

Week 1…

run 1 min, walk 2 min

repeat 7x

total: 21 min

Week 2…

tun 1 min, walk 1 min

repeat 10x

total: 20 min

Week 3…

run 2 min, walk 1 min

repeat 7x

total: 21 min

Week 4…

run 3 min, walk 1 min

repeat 5x

total: 20 min

Week 5…

run 4 min, walk 1 min

repeat 4x

total: 20 min

Week 6…

run 6 min, walk 1 min

repeat 3x

total: 21 min

Week 7…

run 9 min, walk 1 min

repeat 2x

total: 20 min

Week 8…

run 12 min, walk 1 min

then run another 7 min

total: 20 min

Week 9…

run 15 min, walk 1 min

Then run 4 min

total: 20 min

Week 10…

run 20 min

And leap for joy!

I don’t know. It all sounds pretty freaky to me, but they say it works. They say it’s the easiest and best way to build up the cardiovascular strength to do actually start running. And shit, I’m willing to give it a try!

Oh yeah, one more thing. I’d like to formally extend my apologies to my poor, defamed mother. She did in fact offer me up a bike in exchange for the one that she stole from me years ago. So soon I will have a new bike! And it’s all due to my darling mother, who always makes good on her promises. Thank you, Mommy.
