I did my first ever hills workout today! DH and I went to a killer hill right by our house. This hill is 900m in length. It starts with a slight incline and then ramps up fairly quickly. I ran up and down the hill 3 times for a total of 5.5km. It took me 40:48 to complete this workout. This was better than I expected. My first goal will to be able to run up this hill without stopping. I...

19km was finished this morning! The run went exactly according to plan. I was doing 10:1 splits. Last week i had some difficulty with my long run, but not this week. DH and i had decided we would get our long runs in first thing this morning so we could just enjoy the rest of our day. And enjoy we have. We took our dog and his best friend down to the river for a swim and a bit of a hike. When we...

I didn't want to run...
I was tired after my cardio heavy weekend. I was tired and it was raining, the perfect excuse. So instead of running, I made dinner. Then, the rain stopped. The rain stopped, and my mind knew that I should run. But, I didn’t want to. So instead of running, I watched an episode of Bones. The show ended, and I knew deep down that I should run. I put my running clothes on, climbed onto the bed,...
05/21: 135.4 05/22: 137.2 (I had a burger and fries yesterday for dinner, this is water weight)
4n4 Challenge Accepted
4% of 135.4 is 5.1. Therefore my goal weight in 4 weeks will be 130lbs. That number is totally doable. 05/21: 135.4
16k planned. Just do it!
I am cooking a cedar planked salmon for dinner. What do you think would make a good side dish? For dessert I am thinking of making a berry and melon fruit salad with a cool whip topping.
It is 10:30, on my day off, and I am lounging in the bath having already ran my 8km. I needed to get this workout in early because DH and I want to play tennis, go golfing, and take our dog down to the river. It is going to be an awesome day outside! I am so glad my allergies are better and I can now actually enjoy spring.
Today was a good day! I ate well, swam, and played tennis. I did not go for my run, because instead I played tennis. However, I don’t work tomorrow do I will run then.
I went to the pool this morning. My intentions were to try for 2000m. Unfortunately my body was not up for the increase yet. I was sneezing and coughing in the pool, which makes swimming and keeping my head under the water rather difficult. I ended up swimming 40 laps which is only 1000m. I am okay with that, I still have 8km to run tonight and then I might play a game of tennis. My eating today...
10k done this morning! I am so happy I can run again.
I am awake. Now, to actually go for my am run.
I was able to run today! So happy! My allergies are not just the sniffles and a slight cough, no more trouble breathing. I didn’t die after last night’s softball game, so I headed out for my training run. I did 6km in 40 minutes, I am pretty happy with that since it is my first run in 14 days. Here is hoping there are no more training setbacks on my road to a marathon.
The last two days have gone well. My allergies are still to bad to workout. Yesterday I attempted my 16k (inside on a treadmill) after 1 1/2km I gave up because I was coughing and couldn’t breathe. I haven’t gone outside since. I have been keeping to my minimum calorie allowance, because I am not exercising. I did this by turning down a piece of my own birthday cake and only...
Tomorrow I start tracking and blogging again. Hold me to it.
Marathon Training Day 16 - Recap
I woke up and had one of my favourite breakfasts, two fried eggs with toast, yoghurt and fruit (watermelon). I then headed to the pool, bringing my swimsuit this time. At the pool. I swam about 300m before I started to feel terrible. I was feeling tired, crampy, and dizzy. I decided it just wasn’t happening and sat in the hot tub a few minutes before getting showered and dressed. Snack...
Marathon Training Day 15 - Recap
Finding something for breakfast and lunch was tricky today. Because we were gone all weekend, I didn’t have an opportunity to stock up on fruits and vegetables. Luckily, we still had milk in the fridge. For breakfast, I had Special K Satistfaction cereal w/ milk and yoghurt. I went to the pool for work. Unfortunately, I didn’t have my swimsuit in my gym bag. I guess I put in a pair...
