Fatherhood and Fitness Check in #1

So it’s been a week since I last posted about fatherhood and pursuing some sort of fitness.  Things are going well at this point.  Weight is down to 234.4 which is great.  I think like everyone I’d like to see it lower, but it’s a journey not a sprint.

I did get in three rather solid workouts this week.  Two of them were in the gym where I did some pushups and chin-ups and ran on the treadmill.  This morning I went and ran outside for the first time this year.  It was pretty good. Ran my 1.5 miles in less time than I had been running them on the treadmill, which really doesn’t surprise me.  Seems to be the way things go.

I also went and got a armband for my phone so I can have some music and track my runs.  Lazy I suppose, but I did it anyways.  And while at the running store I saw a entry form for a 5K at the end of this month. It’s a bit sooner than what I had wanted but I’m really giving it some consideration to get a baseline of some sort.

We’ll see what this next week brings for fitness.  Going to try and run 1.75 miles each of the three days that I workout.
