Has it really been 2 weeks since I've posted a blog???
So the Portland Rock n Roll 1/2 marathon was great. All four of us finished and I wasn't last. It may happen one of these days, but until then I'm hanging onto it!
The weather was super muggy (ick!) and then rained. The weather pretty much sucked the life out of me, but I wasn't really sore the next day. So there is a win.
It didn't help that I had left my wicking pants at home so I was wearing....wait for it...waaaait for it.....cotton pants!
Not something I recommend!!
So the bad news? Since I've done the last four 1/2 marathons I have managed to gain 15 lbs. WTF???!!???
Saw my doc today and she confirmed my suspicions. I just need to go to a nutritionist. I can follow diet plans, but when I throw in a day of lots of exercise I really need help figuring out what is enough to eat. Besides, it is sooooo easy to say, "Hey, I did a 1/2 marathon....I can eat this bowl of mac & cheese."
I want to have this all figured out soon since the Seattle Rock n Roll half is in a few weeks.
I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day Weekend and thanked those that are in service to us!
