The other day I was in my purple tank top and blank pants...
And down another 12-13 lbs from the last time I compared so I thought it would be fun to compare some more...
1 to 2 = 27 lb difference. 2 to 3 = 12ish lb difference
Thats 40 lbs!
I think I am starting to look buffer!
Well that was fun....
This week marked Official Week 1 of half marathon training.
Day 1 - 4 miles
It was on the treadmill at work...
It was boring...
But kept a 9 minute pace.
Again, treadmill at work...
(OMG I went to the office 2 days in a row!)
I just wanted to get it over with so I actually ended the run at a 7:30 pace!
It kind of felt awesome!
And then I went to boot camp class immediately following it...
And I was spent.
Day 3 - 5 miles
Finally got back outside and had a great, relaxing run.
Day 4 - Rest
And I did..
But I still went to boot camp.
Day 5 - 3 miles
I really tried to keep it at a nice and easy pace but with it only being 3 miles I booked it back home.
Day 6 - 6 miles
I dropped the girls off at my in laws house and ran around their area.
It was beautiful out!
I ran thru the shopping center and then thru some super nice neighborhoods...
A bit hilly, but I need that.
I had a pain in my side most of the run but kept a pretty good pace.
Day 7 - 4 miles
Yeah... that doesn't say 4 miles.
The night before my running group had a night out.
Momma was out on the town for the first time in FOREVER.
I woke up a little hung over and wasnt even sure if I would run at all.
But Brian was about to head out of town.
I was in a pretty crappy mood because I was tired and Brian was leaving so I needed to go run to clear my head before he left.
I immediately had a horrible side cramp.
Maybe it was because all I had eaten before was coffee, oatmeal, cadburry creme egg, and marshmallows.
I had to end it early...
Yes, I was bummed...
But the plan says to adjust as needed...
And Sunday it was needed!
Im nervous about the training plan I choose and beginning to feel like it might be too much.
I really like the schedule of the long runs, but the weekly runs are ALOT.
I currently cannot decide if I want to find a new plan all together or just scale back some of the weekly runs.
I just ran 24.6 miles in week 1...
I do not want to get burnt out.
