On my goal of "not being fat" and "get semi-fast" again I ran the Houston Half Marathon this weekend. Originally was running it with a friend but she got sick and backed out so I decided to go a bit faster and run with the 1:30 pace group. 2 miles in I was feeling good and pulling ahead of them so I went "fuck it" and went for it. Finished in 1:27 feeling good. Now I think I'm going to aim to BQ this year. Gotta run a 3:10, so really have to do a 3:05.
@AaronWebstey man I was where you were last year. Had put on a bunch of weight after the kids due to lack of exercising and too much late night eating when I was up with them. It sucks balls, my logging food with something like MyFitnessPal helped me get back on track by forcing me to pay attention to what I ate. I didn't try to limit myself to a particular diet just watched my volume. That plus starting to run again got me to drop 25 lbs in 4 months.
You will hate life for a little while but it sounds like you aren't happy with things right now either... Good luck!
