    Building a better me... aiming for consistency

    Hi all, my name is Igor from Italy, 46, IT professional.
    I was wandering here some months ago, when I was training for my 5th marathon.

    A lot of time passed, a hack attack on the site, no more favourites and /dd page, but I am still here looking for advices and expecially for motivation.
    I started for seriuos training a lot of times and I can say that my only success in training was at age of 40 when I set and get the marathon goal.
    My first one was not a success, but I really kept consistent and run a lot of km in preparation.
    I run 5 marathons in total, completed only 4, last one I suffered a knee injury, it took a lot of time to recover. Honestly I was undertrained for the last one...

    After this result, I am always trying... I begin gym, then leave, then spinning... for 10 lessons then leave. some tennis then no partner to play with...
    I still run, but a lot less than when under training.

    I can say that my only determination is my lack of determination...
    I still follow the dream to run a marathon under 4 hours, because I am quite sure that the only sport where I have some ability is long distance running.

    I am not sure if this post will be motivating, or will help in reaching some result... I was not sure even about writing here...

    My first and immediate goal is to reach some consistency in training, so I want to do the Daily Dare for 50 days so I can add the badge to my profile
    I'm trying to follow 2019 Advent Calendar: http://darebee.com/advent2019.html

    Meanwhile I will eat better, aiming to lose some 4-5 kg (actually I am 80 kg for 175 cm... this doesn't help me running) before the end of January.

    Next running goal is a half marathon the 6th of January.

    I'm happy to be here again!

    Starting 02/12/2019
    Heigth 175 cm
    Weight 79.9 kg
    BMI 26.1
    Chest 108 cm
    Waist 99 cm

          Day 4 of consecutive DD, this seemed easy.
          Day 2 of Advent Calendar, not so demanding.
          Day 3 of Advent Calendar, again, manageable (I've to get back on track)
          Tonight I'll go out for a run...
          No. No run, busy with family...

            Today was a busy day at work, I was away and got back home really late.
            But I managed to do the day 5 of consecutive DD. A though one for me.
            Then I did Day 4 and 5 of Advent Calendar.
            I usually have "problems" on weekend to stay on track.

              Day 6 of Daily Dare. This was a known one...
              Day 6 and 7 of Advent Calendar, so now I'm back on track.

              Having to come here to write every day my "progresses" helps me to stay focused and find the time to do the 2 or 3 simple exercises.
              I had a look at a puh-up discussion "The Pushers"... https://darebee.com/hive/the-pushers#post319724
              I think I'll add this after Advent.
