Starting my exercise journey

At first I got a membership to a local fitness center and began heart rate training on the treadmill.

 After a few months of training on a treadmill and running a few 5ks and my first 10k I progressed to the next big goal of mine to complete a 1/2 marathon.

I followed the beginner half marathon schedule I found on PopSugar, and I was on my way to the half marathon.

I didn’t want to sit there and have a chance to back out, so I signed myself up and paid the entry fee for our 13.1 Alamo in March of 2016. From there I decided I like running outside better than running on the treadmill and I cancelled my gym membership.

Now, that I have lost all the weight that I needed to, I am still running outside weather permitting 3 times a week and I want to start a strength training regimen. I bought Kettle bells and we already have a bench and some small free weights.
