Sturgis Falls Half Marathon Complete

Monday, June 28, 2010

I did it along with some fellow turtles! I broke the 3hour mark which was totally my goal and got a finisher medal which totally makes me happy because I think anyone that does 13.1 or higher deserves a medal. My official time was 2:48 something, but the course was slightly flood shortened so I would have run about 2:58 so that is my half time for me! The next one I will for sure crush 2:48 anyway but I wanna keep it real! I was happy I got to meet a SP Turtle for the first time and ole LEFTCIRCLES did great! I have also found out that I have inspired a lot of people to get moving, running and working out in general.! I like being an inspiration I won't lie. So another half marathon down! One big marathon to go after a 8k on July 4th.
Major improvement did not take a walk break until the 7.5 mile mark, I can run 7.5 miles without stopping!

  Finisher medal? Is that awarded for finishing the marathon, or for finishing it within a certain time limit?

A much better week so far

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

I am having a lot better week so far I have worked out, I am eating right. I even had a point where I wanted to overeat and I didn't allow it I noshed on veggies instead of what I was wanting (a second hamburger) I planned out my meals and have followed my meal plan. I ran today even though my schedule got thrown completely off and I had to run in the 2pm sun which gave me a nice tan quickly ( and before I get chewed out for not wearing sunscreen, I am allergic to sunscreen I have not found one out there yet that doesn't cause the opposite effect of what it is supposed to, blessed with a sun friendly skin tone though). Side note while we are on allergies I am allergic to some of the strangest things most bug repellents (so I wear vanilla), sunscreen, dairy (which is common, but sucks). Anyway like I said sidetracked. My big goal is to keep up the good habits this week and carry it on into the new month!

    Glad you had a good week! As for the sunscreen - is it sunscreen or the PABA you may be allergic to?

Don't you have a marathon this w/e too? If so, good luck...I may be offline for a couple of days b/c I'm going to a conference... but know I'm cheering for you whatever you do :)

    Does vanilla really work as a bug repellent? I'll have to try that! I'm lactose intolerant so I understand the dairy issue and it does SUCK!!!
Good for you for not eating that second hamburger!!!

Easy week finished with a half marathon

Monday, June 21, 2010

This week is a taper week, getting rested for the half marathon on the 27th I am as ready as I can be at this point so I will have to remind myself to take it easy and not stress, need to focus this week on hydration and proper nutrition and enjoy some nice easy short runs! Started today off pretty well got interrupted for my workout today so I had to modify the plan a little bit, no big deal though time on the stationary bike is good too. I am excited for my half marathon it is in my home town and there are a few turtles doing the race along with me! Can't wait!

    A few turtles? I'm guessing you aren't too fast? Never heard that term used before. I'm sure you're faster than a turtle! Good luck this weekend!

Starting the week off right.

Sunday, June 20, 2010

I got plenty of sleep last night, thanks to the party finally being done and a success, started yesterday with a 5k run and then partied it up. Now to make upr for yesterdays debauchery I am starting it right with some fresh fruit for breakfast and getting rehydrated! Running and strength training to follow my recovery!

Action Update

Friday, June 18, 2010

I have made my meal plan for 1 week and will assess what I have in the fridge and cupboards from there and plan out the 2nd week. I have been hydrating like crazy getting ready for the run after work and I have kept proper nutrition up for the night and filled out the food journal! Now the only thing left to do is mentally prepare for and complete my morning run. Mental preparation will be visualizing getting my running gear on while the dogs go outside and then eat their breakfast, I will then visualize myself stepping out the door and enjoying a nice run (at this point any distance will do, but would like at least 5miles). I am also going to mentally prepare by continuing to tell myself that while I may be tired after work I am not TOO TIRED this is always my excuse I'm too tired to do a run after work, so today I am full of life and ready for my run! Action is being taken and that is what is going to get me on track and out of the slump I have been in.
