Last October, Max was watching friends finish a marathon and thought to myself, “I can do that!”
He’s set two new goals for himself this year: launching an 18-week marathon training, and blogging all the way to the finish line. Here’s his latest installment:
After spending some time on the sideline with an injury, I am finally back to running!
I have not been able to run in about 5 weeks and I am really excited about getting back out there. Since I was unable to run, I tried to work out on the stationary bike as much as possible. Unfortunately, I got bored very quickly and did not do as much as I should have.
I have also tried to continue lifting weights even while I was injured. Now that I am fully healthy, I will try to alternate 1-2 days of cross training with a stationary bike or elliptical to keep some stress off of my legs.
I have also decided it is really time to dedicate myself to eating healthier. Anybody that knows me knows that I hate cooking; I would rather go to Subway of Jimmy Johns.
Unfortunately, in order to eat healthier, I must start cooking for myself. I will try to spend a good part of this week looking up simple, healthy recipes. If any of you know any, please send them to me!
In other news, I have officially signed up for the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon! The race is on Sunday, October 6.
