D31 - Running - CHECK! Food... squiggly half-check?

Thursday, August 23, 2012

Food hasn't been crazy but it hasn't been perfectly tracked and on point either.

Room for progress!!!!

I just did my run for today, 4 miles, which means I'm on schedule to do my 8 tomorrow and 17 Saturday. WOOHOO! If I get in those runs that means I'll finally have my normal Sunday off day and be back really on schedule. I've been kinda swapping things around a lot lately and running a lot of days together between my family visiting and then the hard half marathon the following weekend, but now I think I'm getting on track with the running schedule.

I had a FANTASTIC 12 miler yesterday that just felt amazing. Today's 4 was just there. Not great but definitely not bad. This week's total mileage will be 45 - a new all time weekly PR.

I will do some ST before I take a shower for the first time in ages.

To be clear, ST for the first time in ages, I shower quite regularly. ;)

But seriously, while my running has been goinggoinggoing my food and my ST has been a thing where I keep saying I need to do it and keep not doing it. I just need to rebuild those habits because I used to be so on point with both of those things so that I didn't even think about it. I just did it. I want that back! And I will work to get it.

    I had to laugh at the showering comment. So glad you left that in there for our amusement!

Meanwhile, let me say that your running schedule is quite impressive. I am glad you are able to get it into a routine that you are happy doing. You have inspired me to spend some time developing a routine of exercise (NOT running) that will let me track my progress. You inspire me, as I am sure you inspire many others.

    You have definitely been running really strong Dana! So happy for you :-)

Maybe attach a little reward to each ST session- eg If I do ST for 30 min, I get to take a bubble bath after for 30 min... or do daily 10 min mini sessions... and make them longer. Sometimes when I'm totally out of my groove, I still feel better about my ST than if I blow it off completely!

    I think you would feel a lot better too if you tracked everything and really figured out where you stand. You know you'll have a greater allowance for calories b/c of all the running. So if you aren't tracking, but still might be in your proper range- you don't even know it! And you might be making yourself feel guilty for nothing. NOW... that doesn't say anything about nutella and fluff! emoticon hehe. But seriously, you need some major energy for all those miles! WOOHOO on the new PR! That's insane! (and almost 2 marathons!!)

    HAHAHA, thanks for the clarification, re: showering! :D

Maybe I'll run 17 on Saturday in solidarity with you!

Nice job keeping the running on point. I hate it when I get "off schedule" too!
