Turned 41 years old today. I suppose it means I’m no longer a young adult and finally moving into a so-called “normal” adulthood or something like that. Yet I still feel like someone in their twenties at times, only my body doesn’t quite agree.
I visited the doctors on Friday and he said I’m good and healthy except for being a bit overweight. I weighed in at 225 and I need get down to my normal body weight of 190 pounds.
So this morning I woke up at 5:30 and decided that its time to introduce a new daily exercise routine into my lifestyle. I went jogging around our neighborhood, while only a mile this morning in about 8 minutes it felt really good.
Going forward I’m going to start getting up half an hour earlier, go for an early morning run around our neighborhood then jump in the shower and head off the work. As build up my stamina I’ll increase the distance and time until I can run non stop for at least half an hour. I’m looking forward to doing it every morning (unless I’m mountain biking).
Here I am on July 31st at the San Francisco Marathon 5k start line…
