With a focus on fitness and strength, January started with a long walk that had some running in it. I'm in Ft. Lauderdale with my in-laws celebrating the new year. I've set my fitness goals for 2015, and wanted to start the year strong. Mission: Accomplished. Today's walk/run was along A1A and the beach lasting an hour and 23 minutes. At 5.8 miles, the pace was 14:12/mile. I'll take it, especially since there wasn't any pain and only slight tightness. If I had to guess, I'd say I ran about a mile of the 5.8.
The good news is the strength work with the trainer is working, as is the work with physical training. I need to work on strength and mobility as I have, but work it more into the daily schedule. I'll also be working movement into the day, throughout the day.
