plans so far

Well, I've been trying to come up with a race calendar for 2015 with some difficulty.  I am trying to be super-realistic about where I'm at with my running, with my stupid heel/achilles, and with my overall fitness.

I've pencilled in a few races; starting with a 15k in June - which I promptly erased from my calendar; a 3-5 person marathon relay on Memorial Day weekend - which I promptly erased from my calendar; a weekend in NYC in June to run the Mini 10k - which I promptly erased more due to budget constraints.

So as it stands:
  • a local 10k in August
  • a local 5k in August
  • NYRR Ted Corbitt 15k in December
That's it so far.  I'm in the lottery for NYC Marathon, but have no intent to run in 2015.  If I get picked (and we find out next week), I will hold onto my entry and almost certainly use it in 2016.

My main order of business right now is: power-walk 4 days a week, and focus on better eating.  I have a goal by end of June to be at a healthy weight.  That's 4 months of hard work ahead of me.

Oh, and I just signed up for the beginner runner group at the local Fleet Feet running store.  That'll rein me in from trying to do too much too fast as I come back yet again from my heel/achilles issue.
