    Thank you for the Spark Goodie. I needed that. You are so right.. After training for so long, it does become very emotional to have to back out due to injury. But next year is a new year and I learned from my mistake. Next year I am planning at least 6 -8 weeks in between HM Races. 3 weeks just was not enough time for recovery. Wishing you a Happy Sparking Day and Thanks again for your support!

    I am really heart broken about deferring this Half Marathon Race. I did it last year and loved it. I just decided this pain has been going on so long and I have had friends who told me they had to rest for almost three months and stop running to finally have the pain go away. This pain has been since 6/6/15.. I hopefully will be able to do some shorter races later this year after resting a bit and start training again for Half Marathons after the first of the year.. Wishing you the best on your training. Thanks again for your kind comment. I added you as a friend.. Have a great evening!

    Thanks so much for your comments on my blog. I also struggled for a long time with thinking that I had to follow a super low calorie diet in order to maintain my weight. I spent quite a long time on maintenance eating less than 1,400 calories a day six days a week and bingeing wildly on the seventh. Although I was still maintaining, in spite of the huge spikes after my binges, it wasn't how I wanted to live the rest of my life. Because my body seemed to have gotten used to me consuming so little most of the time, it took some time for me to adjust my calorie levels, but now I can reliably eat more than 2,000 calories a day and still maintain. And because I'm generally satisfied with how much I'm eating, I don't have many of those 5,000-6,000 calorie days any more like I used to that would take me the rest of the week to compensate for.

    There are other episodes in the podcast that I mentioned in my blog that might be of interest to you. Episodes 80: http://podbay.fm/show/502334416/e/13768956
    and 81: http://podbay.fm/show/502334416/e/13775004
    focus on two women who were able to rebuild their metabolisms after years of restrictive dieting. A lot of their experiences mirror my own.
