    One Down…..lots to go!!


    So I did it.  I went out for a run tonight, just like I said I would. Was there ever any doubt?? 😉

    After the first 500M I got a cramp that lasted the whole run!  Not as bad as it sounds considering the run only lasted 3km 🙂 At the 2.5km mark I had some lovely sharp shooting pain into my knee!  Apparently my muscles in my back are a little tight and this is their way of asking me what the heck I am doing??

    Overall I would say it was a success as I managed to get out and run 1 week to the day after injuring my back. I will have to take it pretty slow and do a number of shorter runs before attempting anything to crazy! (and by crazy I mean anything over 5km at this point…sad isn’t it)

    I am hoping to get out tomorrow or if not then, atleast a couple of times during easter weekend to burn off the extra calories I am sure to enduldge in.  I am sure my son will be getting lots of chocolate from the easter bunny and being the good dad that I am I will have to help him get through it 🙂

    A banker by day, 35-year-old Tyler recently decided to train for a marathon. And by "decided," he means that "my wife has given me permission to train for the full." A dedicated family man with two young children (a three-year-old and a six-month-old), Tyler says it's a constant challenge to find more time to run. He says that his wife wants him to run because it's good for his heart, but he's slightly suspicious that the real reason might be because his body "was beginning to look more and more like a pear," and "she doesn't like pears." We wish him the best of luck in becoming the fruit of his wife's dreams!
