I finished 1/4 of my half marathon training today with a 5 mile run/jog in 64:04. I’m glad I’ve made it this far without skipping a day or giving up. Lets’ hope the next 1/4 go as well!
My left ankle and knee have been feeling wonky whenever I run more than 2 miles. I’m going to keep my eye on it and if it gets worse, I’ll have to get it checked out.
I worked 4pm-midnight on Thursday, 1:30pm-10:30pm (I walked 10 miles around work during this, WHAT) on Friday, & 9am-5pm yesterday. I was wiped out this morning. After my run I had lunch, watched 2 episodes of Dexter, & then napped for 4 hours. I feel great & definitely needed that.
Today I did my scheduled 3.5 miles in 42:26. I really did not want to run today, but I did. I’m satisfied. After my 5 miles on Sunday I will be done with week 3 of half marathon training. My eating has been okayish. Need to find the determination to eat good at least 80% of the time.
I’m working until midnight tonight and I hope my medium iced coffee gives me the strength I need to not lose my mind. I went on a 2nd date last night and it was blahhhh. Not half as good as the first. I am secretly hoping he just doesn’t text or call me again.
I am obsessed with Weird Al’s “Word Crimes”. I can’t listen to it on loop enough.
It was a struggle to peel myself off the couch while binging Dexter on Netflix today.
I knew the only way I’d be able to complete my 4 miles today was if I was distracted the whole time. So I was thankful the world cup final was today!
I ran/jogged my 4 in 49:39. I am pleased with this time. My left ankle is feeling a little wonkadoodle. I will need to keep an eye on that.
My friend just introduced me to a Greek yogurt that has 18g of protein. These little guys are super filling, delicious, and my new go to snack!
I normally like to only talk to one match.com guy at a time. I find it hard to multitask and who likes what and has what interest. However, I just went on a liking/winking spree. I now have a few messages in my inbox. AH. I’m scurred!
I ran my 3 miles as part of my half marathon training yesterday.
I skipped my cross training today because my left knee is feeling all sorts of wonky and I figured rest is best. Tomorrow I run another 3.
My eating is still pretty awful. Need to get the determination to eat healthy! I hope I find it soon!
I went on a match.com date yesterday and it was absolutely splendid. I was very surprised at how well it went. We had great conversations and laughed a lot. He is in much better shape than me and I figured I may never hear from him again after we left. It’s hard to keep my insecurities under control and not feel like a giant sausage when sitting across from someone who is in great shape. I’ve also been on great dates and afterwards 0 contact after that. To my pessimistic surprise, he texted me today! I need to not feed into my insecurities and I am excited to see where this goes!
I should’ve finished week 1 of my half marathon training yesterday. However, I attended a wedding with an open bar on Saturday so yesterday was spent in recovery.
Today was suppose to be “stretch & strength”. I did stretch and I also ran the 4 miles I was suppose to run on Sunday. It took me 51:13.
I have to run 3 miles tomorrow, cross train on Wednesday, another 3 mi on Thursday, rest on Friday, cross train/strength on Saturday, and then run 4 mi on Sunday.
Next week all the mileage gets bumped up. I’m scared.
When I need to start running 6+ miles I’m going to move outside. Right now the treadmill is my friend. I get sucked into Good Morning America and everything seems great! Nervous for the heat & humidity outside.
My eating has been okay/not good. Need to turn this around.
I have a first date tomorrow night with someone from match. I’m stressed out trying to figure out what to wear, oy!
My eating has been blah. Usually on point all day, then complete & total disaster at dinner. I’m a social butterfly so dinner & drinks after work is more than likely on my game plan
Today was day 1 of half marathon training. I moved my body 3 miles. My time was 37:14 which is less than stellar for me. Gone are days of a 5k in 31 minutes for me. BUT, I’m happy because during my “omg I can’t catch my breath, I am going to die moments” my treadmill speed only went down to 4mph. Usually I go as low as 3 mph. For me, this is a win.
Tomorrow I either cross train or run 2 miles. Thursday I do 3 again.
My bff is home from Ohio the next 4 days. I am a bridesmaid in her wedding. We will be spending tomorrow checking out the venue & caterer. Thursday I spend the day in Boston with her an another bridesmaid. Going to try on dresses. Errrr. I’m scurred.
I threw my scale out this week. My pants are loose, but the scale says I’ve gained. Suck it scale. No more mind games.
