Day 446- Career Fair and Back on Track

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Hey everyone!

Weighed in at 186.0 this morning so that was good. Back in the right direction. I made alot of healthy choices at the store last week so I was able to make great food decisions and have been tracking left and right.

Also I realized I made it to the gym 4 or 5 times last week which is awesome. However, Friday morning I took dance lessons with JD for the first time ever and let me tell you...that is a workout! I think I aggravated the bursa sac in my left hip because it is on fire sometimes. That's annoying because I want to keep training for my half marathon but now I have this freaking pain in my side. The farthest I've run so far is 7 miles and I need to keep working my way up so I don't die in April.

I didn't get to the gym today, but I did walk around a job fair for 45 minutes in heels, so that has to burn some calories right? Applied for a few jobs when I got home, but not truly worrying about it. I'm literally trying to focus from week to week and not worry so much about months from now, and I think that keeps me more focused.

I also got a phone call for an in person interview at a company back home so I will be doing that on Friday. Fingers crossed it goes well.

As for right now, I'm going to fix a small dinner and pack a snack for my FOUR HOUR CLASS... Haha. I cannot wait to graduate. I love school and all, but 18 years will be quite enough for me. :)

Hope you all are having a great week!

If you're in pain, DON'T RUN. If that means you don't run the half in April, so be it. Better to miss one race and recover properly, than to try to make that one race and be taken out of commission for several months.

There will be other races, and if it doesn't work out this time it will another time. Trust me on this; I missed a half marathon last April due to injury, and aggravated that injury trying to come back too fast. But I have a chance (not a certainty, but a good chance) of being ready for the 2013 version of that half marathon in April. If that doesn't happen, it doesn't happen; but if I have to drop out, I want to drop gently enough that I have a chance to run a half in September, not lose another running summer to injury.
