Lifting And Running, Lifting And Running

Let me start off by saying that I am not a big guy. I’ve simply come to the conclusion that I have not been created to be a bulky, muscle bound invdividual. I can go to the gym on a regular basis and workout, but in order for me to really bulk up, I need to put in serious time with the weights and eat large quantities of high protein foods.

However, there is something truly enjoyable about spending some regular time working out. And while the results I see may not match that of someone with a more muscular build, it’s quite satisfying to know that you’re working to keep your body in optimal condition.

Right now I find myself debating about whether or not I should begin training to run a half marathon this summer. I rode the STP (200+ mile bike ride from Seattle to Portland) last summer and that was great, but I think I want a different challenge this year and a half marathon might be it.

I’m not a huge fan of running if I don’t have something chasing me or something for me to chase, but I’ve been spending some time running lately and I’m starting to get delusional enough to think that I just might be able to pull the half marathon off.

We’ll see, what happens.
