I’ve been dedicated to changing my habits and after 5 months, my focus has yielded great results. I am now actively walking for exercise usually 5 or 6 days a week, averaging about 25-35 miles per week. This number is increasing as I am focusing on running various 10k events when the weather gets better around here. As the snow melts away, I will begin doing interval running and then full 10k workouts.
I just wanted to thank the moderators and all the nice friends I have met here who have encouraged and inspired me and I hope that I can do the same for others as well. I think we all should be recognized for our individual and collective effort in building healthier lives and promoting friendship. Thanks to all!
Rock and roll on down the road, and just keep on keepin’ on! ------------Albie
