So I still haven't given up on the 1/2 marathon idea. I'm in week 4 of Hal Higdon's 12 week program. The HM I want to do is October 7 so I still have room to repeat a couple of weeks here and there as it gets harder.
Yesterday I got up at 5, ran 3.5 miles, went to work, took a lunch break for a 30 minute kettle bells class (this is the weight training component of my HM program), went back to work, then came home, made dinner, ate, and jumped in the pool with the family for a while.
It was a terrific day but I am paying for it today! Not terribly sore but enough to notice and I feel tired too.
On the weight loss side of things, I now have about 14/15 pounds to lose to hit my goal. The HM isn't really helping, because it is making me hungrier and my calorie intake has crept up. I think I need to go back to tracking every morsel of food that goes into my mouth.
It's so hard though! But it works for me, so I think I need to do it even though I don't want to!
