Hi! My name is Falyn and this is SlackerRunner! Over the past few years, I discovered that I love to run. Hated it when I was a kid but love it now. However there was a small problem. Know what else I love? Sitting in my big, comfy chair, and Netflix, oh and pizza. Conflict ahead!!
I ran for almost three years with little to no improvement. I checked out all the sites; big names and little ones. I bought books and tried various training plans, nothing worked:( I was ready to chuck everything out the window. About 99% of the sites I researched pushed for running at least 5 days a week, some everyday…um, what?! It didn’t help that their slowest training plans at the time were still faster than me:( Talk about kicking you when you are already down.
I tried theirs, I failed, and so what’s a girl to do? I cannibalized everything I had read and learned, took bits and parts and inserted my own inherent slacker-ness and tada! Results! In less than 8 months, I had shaved 24 minutes off of my half marathon time and lost 35 pounds, woo hoo!
So if you are interested in hearing more about how I did it, or looking for place to talk about running with a little less pressure, come on back! There will be tips, random thoughts and probably some hilarity, but right now I need a break!
