Oh, we are doin' this!

I am not allowing myself not to try this time. I have talked about this forever and I am thinking I am afraid of failing so let's break that down.
Can I fail? Not really.
Can I not reach my goal? Yes, but will I be better than I am right now? Absolutely.
So really why not just do it.
I am prepping for the next week.
That will mean I start the week of January 25th.
I need some charts, numbers and ideas written down so I know where I am going and where I have been. That is pretty much what I am doing now.
I need some strength work and I don't want to make it crazy but would love it if I can do it without a gym. I have about 6 exercises I think will cover the general things I want to do. Maybe down the line I will add to it but for now let's stay basic.
I have a training plan for 10 weeks which I would like to stretch out a few weeks. I am thinking I will do the first 2-3 weeks 2 times to build a good base as my running has been erratic with the surgery and the weather.
I need a cross train exercise and my ideas are:
Stationary bike indoor for the crappy weather days
Walking-kid friendly
Hiking-because I love it!
Swimming-kid friendly and works your ass off.
I think I will move the week around so that the long runs are my day off too. Trying to make this as livable as possible.
So the big goal is to run 10 miles and enter the Newport 10 Miler June 7th. It is 140 days away according to their website and I will be there.

Ok, I just said it. Scared but so excited.
