Last Week’s Training & A New Challenge!

Hey everyone! Hope that everyone’s Monday is off to a great start!

Last week I actually managed to get all of my training runs in! I can’t believe it. Now, let’s make this consistent and happen every week.

Here is a recap:

Tuesday- 2 miles. Had to cut this one short due to the heat

Wednesday- 6.5 miles

Thursday- 4.6 miles

Saturday- 9 miles. Finally a long run!!! Ran with my cousin and this run was both hilly & warm! It felt really good when we were done.

My New Challenge!

This week I want to challenge myself to finally keep track of what I am eating and make a plan to lose some weight. I have not mentioned this before, but over the past five years I have lost about 50 pounds. I have gained some of it back and I am still not at my goal weight. I have about 20 more pounds to go and I would like to lose some of that before I really get into marathon training. I know that I will not be able to lose all of it or even half before mid-June, but I need to try. I know that it will improve my running.

So, my challenge is to document what I eat daily. I don’t know how long I will do this, but I think that it is going to be very important to my success! I will use this blog as a “food journal” and hopefully it will keep me on track!

I am really excited to start this challenge and I look forward to sharing it with you! Tomorrow will start Day 1 of the challenge!
