Sunday, February 15th, 5 mile run, 25F degrees, felt great.

(50 miles total for the month but I am really trying to NOT focus on that.)

I'm going to attempt the Couch to 5K program. I did the first run/walk today. I was actually surprised that I could do it. I think it'll be good for me.

The gym has been hrlping me a lot too by having to focus on going the 5 days a week. I hated going to the gym with a hangover, I take the weekends off but I will be back tomorrow.

during my drinking & using career, running and/or cyling was always the last thing on my mind.

Today, I'm in the best shape of my life, and have completed numerous marathons, ultra marathons & 100+ mile cycling adventures.

I am now certified as a ChiRunning instructor to help myself & others.

I say this, not to impress you, but impress upon you, what we can accomplish in recovery, is simply amazing!

CONGRATS to each and everyone of you!!!!!!!

Thomas

Saturday, February 28th.

Did a great workout in the weightroom today, giving the legs and feet a rest.

When I started thinking about winter running outdoors my biggest concern was February because February in northern OH/PA is n-a-s-t-y weather.

Mission accomplished!

I got through February with 15 runs of 5 miles each! Yee haw!!!

Friday, March 6th, ran 5 miles after a week long break, 61F degrees, nice weather.

I had about 4.75 miles worth of energy, and that last 1/4 mile was a BITCH... lol.

But... just like the times when I want a drink I just say to myself, "keep on going, been here, done this before, I'll get through it...", and I do!
