...just shy of one week. I am sort of in a slump. I do not have much motivation to do the things I know I ought to be doing. However, I am thinking it is time to get with some type of program. I have about 5 weeks til the half marathon and I have no idea where I should be in my training program for it. Lately, it seems my workouts have been shoveling snow.
We have what my mom describes as a "pit of a patio" and to shovel the snow off of it I have to toss the snow up and over. Only we have had so much snow I had to knock the snowbank down a couple of times so I could get the snow up and over.
I am getting to the gym at least twice a week and I am making sure to include a long run. My last long run was 13 treadmill miles. I am making sure to include lots of stretching when I am done. The gym has added one of those thigs where you hang upside down by your ankles and it feels so good after my cooldown. I hope that piece of equipment does not get broken like the treadmills.
April 1st, I start the running class with my granddaughter, so I know I will be ruuning outsdie then. I am hoping for normal temperatures by then.
Now, I am working on getting my mindset to eat healthy again. I fell off the bandwagon and hit the ground hard. It is time to pick myself up, dust myself off and get back on track.
