Half Marathon prep week!

Sunday, May 02, 2010

Got my last long run before the race wanted to do it yesterday but my lazy self thought the snooze bar was much more important. Going right after work! Still doing a sort of cleanse with the shakeology but making sure to get my carbs in so it may not be as effective but I will be really hitting the water so that should yield some results. Did have a nice morning weigh in we'll see what the scale says tomorrow, not focusing on weight right now but performance, but I am still wanting to shed those pounds so can't totally forget about it. Working on the mental game of the HM too, visualizing myself doing well. Put my 5k time into RW smart coach and I think that I should do decent if I just stick with my ability. Working on getting things packed and ready for the trip out to Indy, the trip alone is going to be fun will be almost a full week off work. I think that this will give me confidence and motivation to really get after training for the full marathon and it will give me a chance to see how tough I am! Here's to water and carb loading and a nice easy running week. Can't wait hope that my brother in law will get lots of pics can't believe I am running 6 months ago I didn't think this was even a remote possibility and now I am doing it.

Doing the Half Marathon May 8th afterall!

Saturday, May 01, 2010

Basically that is what I wanted to say! Still going to stick to my reboot although shakeology cleanse is going to have to wait until after the race because I will need different fuel for the race. One true test of my improved attitude on stress will come in the morning. Have to deal with a stressful person however I have a plan on how I will deal and I have an after action plan so I will not eat my weight in food because of the stress! I am going to view them as non stressful I will use my mind to continue to believe they are non stressful to me and while I know today I will probably not succeed in totally believing it I know that I will get there. I will also remember that I have a week of vacation coming up for my impending trip and race! My after action plan for this morning is to head home change into my running gear and head out the door!

Like a computer I am getting a reboot. I need to get all the crap in my life cleaned up and then restart. Today is the restart.
Doing a diet reboot, doing shakeology cleanse in an effort to get myself back on to my good eating habits (while they haven't been horrible there is much room for improvement)
Doing an exercise reboot going to look at my workout schedule, revamp ad get moving!
Doing an emotional reboot, working on making life less stressful and dropping stressful things from my life! Also getting back to looking in the mirror in a positive manner.
Its all about getting the focus back and taking control of the things I can control, while I can't stop stress and bad weather I can change my attitude and the way I deal with all of it.

No half on May 8th it seems

Thursday, April 29, 2010

Looks like I will not be able to get into that race since they don't do transfers of numbers after April 7th still trying to figure out a way to do it but it is looking like a no go! Oh well still going to be there to cheer on my sister. Need more water today been drinking it much too slowly. This super windy day has me ticked off too wanted to do a 9 mile run today but I am not going to do so in 40mph winds that is insane so I am going to go for a short 2 mile run trying to wait the wind out a little bit but I gotta run before midnight. Grr mother nature is getting on my nerves! Just want the weather we were having back that wasn't super windy and was warm and pleasant

Fit Day and New Spark Team Turtles Unite

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

After work this morning did Insanity Plyo Cardio Circuit. Slept, woke up hydrated and had a small breakfast (1pm) and then set out for a 4.25mile jog decent pace enjoyed the day took it nice and easy for my recovery from my 5K. And for all you turtles and turtle loving fans Turtles Unite a new spark team for us slow runners who know slow and steady wins the race because slow and steady finishes the race and that is a win in my book, also while optional turtle tattoos are in the works!

    Go you. You are doing it. The team sounds fun, but I am more a walker - even if a fast walker than a runner, but I commend you for doing this! Go you. Have a great week!
