Well for the last 10 weeks, I trained for and completed my first half marathon. I seemed more tired on race day than I have before. It was fun, and very challenging but I am happy that I can complete 13 miles!
I may be a little crazy, but I signed up for another one in August. It's trail running mostly and a 800 foot elevation gain. No big deal, right? :-)
So since Sunday (5/27), I have been very loose with my diet and exercise. I told myself I would indulge a few days since my birthday was also coming up. I did indulge, and went all the way to today. My weight has ballooned up, but I am thinking it's bloated from the extra salt and water intake.
Now that we are in June, I have decided to start a-new to get back into my training mode for my next race. I lost 20 lbs training, hopefully I can loose as much (maybe a bit more) for this second one. I have set new goals for myself and ready to get back in the saddle.
