New Goals

Last week's cardio goal was a success, as I was shooting for 10 miles of crosstraining and ended up with 17.94 miles of walking, biking, and ArcTrainer (elliptical thing). Saturday's workout was the best sweat I've worked up since the Outer Banks Half Marathon, and it really felt good.

An artic blast is whipping through my area now, so it's going to challenge my motivation to get to the gym in the mornings, and out for walk breaks in the afternoon. I'm going to shoot for another 10 miles this week, then. Soon, though, I'm going to push for 20 miles of crosstraining as my base.

In other news, I have another appointment with the podiatrist on January 7, this time to be fit for custom orthotics! I'm excited that this is finally going to happen! I'm crossing my fingers that I'll be running again in the next month or so. Running, how I've missed ye!

I can only imagine how you must miss running. I've been so fortunate to be injury free now for many years. Lets hope the orthotics will do the trick for you.

Thanks, Johann! Looking forward to that orthotic casting appointment, that's for sure. It feels like a big step in the right direction, in more ways than one. :)

Hurray for the orthotics! January can't come soon enough.
