run run run run run run run run aaaand run.
Thursday I went in for my post surgery check up and was told I couldn’t lift weights or do abdominal exercises for a month. A whole month!!! I’m dying here guys! I have been doing the November plank challenge though and I went to work yesterday and lifted some semi heavy trays of food just because I wanted to do something! I’m going to start running regularly again and hope that helps get me out of my “I can’t lift weights” blues. We shall see…
I remind myself of this over and over again on my runs…
Take the scenic route, switch up the scenery! Make every run an adventure!
Those who have tried it what do y’all think of it? I know you have to work out intensely and often during but I already do that with P90X, running, working at a restaurant and a daycare. So having an active lifestyle to go with it is not an issue. Sooooo, yes or no guys?
Going for runs is what makes you a runner. How many marathons you’ve done or races you’ve been in does not define who is considered a runner, it’s simply going outside and going for a run that does.
I seriously slacked on drinking my water today and yesterday. As a result of my bad fitness behaviors I had a breath taking cramp/pinch under my rib cage from start to finish. I could only do half a mile before I had to stop. I held my arms over my head, pinch and held on to it, walked, breathed super slow in my nose and out my mouth but nothing could shake it! I only did one and a half miles at a 13 minute mile pace! Never again.
I am down ten pounds!!! Ten whole pounds!! Still have more to go before a healthy weight but hey, having that weight off my body and being closer to my goal is making me pretty proud of myself. (:
One word: Blister.
Today on a run I acquired a really bad blister on the arch of my left foot. Thank goodness I get paid on Friday because it’s definitely time for some new shoooooes!!!!!!! YAYAYAYAY!!!
BUUUUUT, I WOULD LIKE Y’ALL TO HELP ME…
I need you guys to recommend some brands. I LOVE Adidas, Brooks, and Asics. But, I would like some other ideas, styles, types, etc. Help a fellow runner out and shoot me a message or something with ideas!
NINE MINUTE MILE! BAM BAM! EAT A PIECE OF HAM!
I followed it with a horrible 13:00 mile though…
Ultimate time goal is an 8:00 mile and 16:00 two-mile, like my cross country days. For my body type, size, and height that is an awesome time and I would like to get back to it sooooon!
Excuse me while I go celebrate my little accomplishment with a hot shower.
I AM A RUNNER.
About to go do this, ciao bellas!
